Hi, I am Janisse Valenzuela,
I am a Hybrid fine art film + digital Photographer, specializing in capturing romantic weddings & joyful families in the greater Houston, TX area and I am always up for an adventure to travel if you desire. Here are 7 fun facts about me:
- I married the man of my prayers on July 12th, 2019
- I am a lover of natural light, dreamy sunsets, florals, and milk tea boba
- My love language is quality time and words of affirmations
- I like to consider myself an advocate for the most vulnerable in society
- I hold degrees in Media Communications & Marriage and Family Studies
- ¡Sí, hablo español! I am bilingual and speak both English and Spanish
- I am a lover of the transcendental mystery of beauty, goodness, and truth.
I've always been a creative soul. Photography has been a hobby of mine for as long as I can remember. Through this creative medium I am able to express the meaningful personal stories of love and life of others. My service to my clients has truly been life-giving and rewarding both artistically and spiritually. Artistically, because it allows me to showcase beautiful faces, emotions, colors, places, moments and sunlight, allowing me to become a true servant of beauty. Spiritually, because my soul is enriched through the human encounters I have as I see the face of God reflected in each of my clients. I treat photography as a form of prayer, with intention and contemplative creativity.
“The artist has a special relationship to beauty. In a very true sense it can be said that beauty is the vocation bestowed on him by the Creator in the gift of “artistic talent”, the artist therefore truly becomes a servant of beauty within the world.”
Some of my favorite things in life...
Why I shoot Hybrid?
My clients often mention that my images look like a work of art. Nothing compares to the look of film & digital film emulation. I photograph primarily in film because of the rich tones, beautiful colors, and timeless feeling it offers. I truly believe that film has an aesthetic that cannot be replicated. I love shooting with film! Within the saturated photography world, 99% of photographer shoots digital and its so rare to find someone who still shoots film. By booking me, you are investing in this value.
