About me

 Husband-and-wife Photography
 & videography Team, documenting elopements and small weddings in Northern California Mendocino and beyond.




If it were up to us, everyone’s wedding weekend wouldn’t be just a wedding, but an experience to remember with your favorite people & amazing food, in a place you love. 


We’re Jana and Eli, a married photography and videography duo committed to making your wedding day one that feels present, full of life, and, honestly? As carefree as possible.

We aim to go above and beyond in capturing your day in a genuinely unique and beautiful way. Our heart is to serve and make your wedding a complete joy from start to the final “cheers,” whether it’s offering up local eating, lodging, and vendor recs or helping coordinate timelines and state or national park permits. We truly are intentional getting to know everyone we work with on a personal level and spend months storyboarding and going over our plan, so we can authentically showcase who you are as a couple and as individuals.

Whether you’re eloping in the middle of nowhere or throwing an intimate wedding at your favorite national park, San Francisco city hall, or a luxury private estate—we want you to be able to really spend quality time with those you love, knowing that we’ll be there to capture the raw emotions and excitement of the day with a tissue in hand, homemade cookie ready for you, or a joke to make you laugh, if needed.

Lets Tell Your Story

The next step in your planning starts here 

We believe your intimate wedding or elopement should be exactly what you want it to be.

To be completely honest, planning a wedding has gotten way too complicated. We vow to take some of the stress off your plate by stepping in to help with odds and ends as needed with to-dos like timeline, places for guests to stay, vendor referrals, and even homemade cookies if you’re lucky (hint: all of our clients are lucky).

This is your day, and we’re there to help make every piece of it a reflection of your relationship. Destination wedding showing off a place you love? Hiking on the Mendocino Cliffs? Strolling through a vineyard? Rock climbing in Joshua Tree? You name it, we’re there to capture this momentous occasion in a way you’ll never forget.

Beyond that, we aim to reflect who you are as a couple every step of the way—tears, laughter, quiet reflections, first kiss, and all. We want you to be able to be present with each other and your loved ones, while we’re capturing it all documentary-style with intention from behind our cameras as the day unfolds.

Testimonials


“The morning of my wedding when Jana and Eli walked through the door, I felt comforted and relaxed with their presence. Jana’s artistic style is timeless, yet she has this ability to capture the present moment and feelings so perfectly. Eli’s warmth and encouraging personality allowed us to be so comfortable in front of his camera. I might have hired them as photographer and videographer, but they ended up being way more than that.” Nicole R.
