What do my wonderful clients have to say?

I simply cannot say enough about how grateful we are for you!! You truly captured and exceeded all of my expectations!! We had put so much pressure on ourselves and the shoot- just, those last minute freak outs like getting everyone ready and there on time, is everyone going to have a positive attitude, trying to ignore all of the beach goers, etc.- I was a mess! You were so wonderful to work with- making it easy and fun! Thank you!!! You have such a difficult job- constant innovation, adapting- you just do it so well- thank you for sharing your talent with us! Not to mention- thank you for your incredible playful and fun personality!! I really wish Allie and Ruby could have played together- I felt like you totally “got” Allie and captured her fierce, silly, and playful personality. -Crissy

Thanks for the awesome pictures that you took of our family. They exceeded our expectations! We have some lifetime memories to hang around the house now. You made the shoot so easy and put us in some great areas to capture the perfect setting. You truly had great energy and made us feel special throughout the process and we appreciate that. We will definitely be using you when we come back to Maui. – Brian Showalter- Dallas, TX

There is not a single bad thing I can say about our experience with Jonelle. The photo shoot was a Christmas present for my parents during our trip to Maui, and I wanted a couple things out of this experience: I wanted to have a stressless bonding experience with my family (brother, parents, and two grandparents), and I wanted the best photos of my loved ones that the limited money of a university student could buy. I also wanted to be able to trust the judgement and knowledge of the photographer. Jonelle managed to exceed my extremely high expectations. She drove across the island to meet us at a beach just a couple minutes from where we were staying, she incorporated the props we brought along (and brought some props of her own!), she was efficient with the daylight we had, she had a thoroughly prepared plan for the evening, she took all of our requests into account, and she made everyone feel safe and confident behind the camera. This is reflected in the photos, which she edited tastefully, with precision, and had ready for us promptly. We got everything we wanted out of this experience and more. I never could have imagined just how meaningful and beautiful this experience could be. Now that we are home, we have invested in new frames and our walls are lined with these priceless memories. Jonelle is kind, devoted, genuine, and highly skilled at what she does. I speak for my whole group when I say that this photo shoot at sunset is one of our best family memories; the photos are an added bonus. – Sophie – Victoria, BC

This is a long overdue review; Jonelle shot our wedding back in February 2014 and did a wonderful job. Besides the fact that she met with me at two locations (we had a back up location in case it rained) prior to the wedding, she also made us and our guests feel comfortable with her and captured some of the best memories of our wedding. Her pricing was also very competitive for a Maui-based photographer. We enjoy the memories that Jonelle captured everyday!- Jenelle – Lahaina, HI

Jonelle, you were incredible! You were patient and very professional with my wife and I. Besides for the stunning pictures you took, we loved every second hanging with you. Everyone is blown away by your photos. You really enhanced our honeymoon. We even got our pictures the next day on a hand delivered USB to our hotel which was so awesome of you! Next time we are back in Maui, we’ll be sure to see you again and anyone we know of that’s going for a visit, we’ll be sure to recommend you. – Sam and Rachel Allman – Long Island, New York

Jonelle is an amazing photographer who absolutely loves what she does. She is the type of person to go above and beyond to exceed her client’s expectations. She is responsive, detailed and has energy for days. My husband and I did a Sunset Honeymoon Photo Shoot with Jonelle at the Grand Wailea Property and on the beach. The photos are wonderful and she captured our playfulness as well as some sweet photos for us. She had to work with us some to get us to lighten up and she took her time to make sure she got the perfect shots. Thank you for helping us create some wonderful honeymoon memories. – Charlene, Orange County

Jonelle filmed our family of 10 on the beach at Wailea. She was absolutely fantastic. She captured our entire group, then individual photos, fun photos and any requests. She has the touch. The pictures are fantastic and show a lot of movement, fun while capturing the trees and ocean. I would highly recommend her. She is fun and easy to work with. Most importantly her work is absolutely beautiful photographs. – Val, Napa

Although my husband and I rarely write a review unless we had a terrible experience or we’re practically forced to do so. We both felt compelled on showing Jonelle and potential clients how grateful we were to have such a wonderful experience with all facets of Janelles photography. My husband and I can not say enough positive things about our entire experience with Jonelle. It can be tremendously difficult planning a wedding and Jonelle made sure the photography wasn’t on the list of stresses. Her prompt response time and professionalism was present from start to finish. She went above and beyond on our wedding day even bringing an assistant to hold an umbrella to keep us dry. (Thankfully it didn’t). Jonelle definitely has a gift of creating breathtaking photos. It was obvious Jonelle had spent some time prepping the best backdrops and angles before we arrived. Knowing that we we’re excited to see our pictures as soon as possible, Jonelle surprised us with some of the photographs she had edited immediately after the wedding. We then received a gift box in the mail when we got home with a USB of all of our photos. Our only complaint is that Jonelle doesn’t live closer to Indiana to capture more specials moments for us. We would highly recommend Jonelle to capture your special memory. -The Feeney’s – Indianapolis, IN

We visit Maui every year. This is the first year we have decided to do family photos. I am so happy to have found Jonelle. She was absolutely amazing, professional, creative and easy to work with. She had to work so hard with us – two adults, two pre-teen girls and a 7 month old baby! Somehow she managed to to get well over a hundred amazing shots of the family, kids and a smiling baby (on a 4 hour time change!) We left the photo shoot and already decided we want her to do family photos every year – even the kids adored her. I couldn’t recommend her any higher. – Samantha H, Salt Lake City, UT

Jonelle you are amazing! You had us laughing and crying looking through our portraits. You truly captured all of our different personalities and we are so grateful. Thank you! – Rebekah, Oregon
