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:

  1. I married the man of my prayers on July 12th, 2019
  2. I am a lover of natural light, dreamy sunsets, florals, and milk tea boba
  3. My love language is quality time and words of affirmations
  4. I like to consider myself an advocate for the most vulnerable in society
  5. I hold degrees in Media Communications & Marriage and Family Studies
  6. ¡Sí, hablo español! I am bilingual and speak both English and Spanish
  7. 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...

1. Being married to my best friend

2. Praying with my husband

3. Traveling with my husband

4. Having amazing woman to call friends

Film and Digital Imagery

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.
