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. 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 14 years ago and we have two kids, one fat cat, a couple of bunnies, and way too many houseplants. We live about 45 minutes north of Anchorage and my daily life consists of homeschooling my children, attempting to grow a garden, and watching moose in our back yard. I love coffee, tacos, plants, 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 moments you want to remember. I 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!
WHAT IS LIFESTYLE PHOTOGRAPHY?
Lifestyle photography is unposed. It's not your typical "everyone stand there and look at the camera and smile" (not that there's anything wrong with that!). It's just not what I do.
I do real. I do fun. I do candid. I do playing, laughing, tickling, snuggling. I do hugging, kissing, talking, running.
I capture you being you. I capture the looks, the moments, the feelings, the closeness. I capture the subtle things, the every day things, the big things, the little things.
Lifestyle photography is about authentic connection and genuine interaction.
It's about your life, your love, your family, your story.
