My name is Janine Soltman. I'm a wife, mom to a crazy beautiful boy, and I fall more in love with photography all the time. It is where I belong and what I’m meant to do. In a nutshell:
I love wine, but I might love coffee more
I think my son is the funniest person I've ever met (he's 4)
I'm a sucker for new fitness classes + always up for run with friends
My husband and I got married at Semiahmoo, just north of Bellingham
Good denim is very important to me
I have an addiction to audio books
I don't currently have an addiction to herbal tea, but I'm trying my best to create one (so I can be super extra healthy obviously)
I believe that I best present myself and how I work in person, over coffee or wine and chit-chat, but here's a little look into how I work when I pick up that camera...
I will capture the first look, the first kiss and the first dance, but it’s the sweet moments in-between that speak to me even more. The groom’s look as he sees his bride, Grandma + Grandpa dancing up a storm and most importantly, the unique connection between my couples.
I don’t just work with my clients, we form relationships. Weddings turn into maternity, to family and boudoir. I’m often hugging not only the bride, but her mother and sisters by the time I’m wrapping up and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I’m there to make you feel calm and at ease in front of the camera, to direct a bit when it’s needed, step back when it’s not and to flush out those awkward moments that we ALL have. More than anything else, I want you to feel super happy with your decision to work together and I believe that we make that happen with the relationship as well as your beautiful images.
Every wedding is different and I'd love to hear more about what you're planning so far! I can help you figure out coverage needs and we can go from there!
