Nice to Meet You

Hi there! I'm so excited you're here! I'm Jannicka, the gal behind the camera.

I'm a family and wedding photographer located in the Mat-Su Valley near Anchorage, Alaska (and I frequently travel to Seattle/Tacoma/Olympia, Washington, too). I absolutely love photographing lifestyle family sessions, intimate weddings, and elopements! My goal is to capture real moments, real emotions, and real life.

I'm half Puerto Rican, so that's why my name is a little unique. It's pronounced "Juh-nee-kuh My-tay", but please don't worry if you say it wrong! I answer to any variation of that. :)

I married my high school sweetheart almost 13 years ago and we have two kids, way too many houseplants, and lots of fun. We live about 45 minutes north of Anchorage and my daily life consists of homeschooling my children, attempting to grow a garden, and figuring out where to pile all the snow. I love coffee, tacos, clothes, the mountains, all things vintage, going on adventures, and spending time with my family.

I strive to be authentic in my photography and capture those special little moments you want to remember. I really try to focus on the emotions and interactions between you and your family and my hope is that you feel something when you look back on your photos.

Please drop me a line if you're interested in chatting about a family session or wedding photography! I've got my snow boots and my camera ready to go. I can't wait!
