Meet the Team

Janelle Joy started as a one-woman show and now has expanded and grown into a dynamic team of editors. I’m proud of both the photography and editing experience I’ve gained and now passed on to my team. We have a total of 30+ years of photography experience between us and about 10 times that in the way of passion for our craft. We know it can be nerve-wracking to hand over your photos to someone else for editing, but we want you to know that we take great care in learning your style and delivering a premium experience.


"Janelle has been such a gift to my business. Since working with her I feel like I got my life back! She not only is the sweetest human, she's brilliant at what she does and is happy to hold your hand through the process. (Her step by step tutorials are almost as adorable as she is!) She's dedicated to giving you consistent work that represents your business and goes above and beyond to understand what your brand and style is while welcoming feedback. She's an incredible communicator and very timely with her turnaround. I couldn't recommend Janelle more! So grateful to have her as an extension of my business and friend."

Rave Reviews

"Working with Janelle has been nothing short of a dream! I cannot believe how much stress it takes away having someone else do my editing. I love that she sends me a few sample edits to make sure they look the way I would edit them myself. The turn around time is also amazingly fast. Janelle is very easy to work with. She responds to emails quickly and answers all questions and concerns. When I get my images back they look just the way I would have edited them myself. (Truth be told, they actually look a little better!)
 Having this extra time (when I would otherwise be editing) allows me to spend more time with my kids, which is so priceless! It also allows me to take on more sessions, therefore earning more money. I do NOT miss editing and would be hard pressed to take it back. I honestly didn't realize what a difference it would make in my personal life. I love having my evenings back to tuck in my babies, play games with my hubby, and go out on more shoots."

"Nothing short of a dream!"

"I had been on the fence on whether I should look to outsource my editing for a while and finally took a chance with Janelle. I am so happy I did! Not only is she incredibly easy to work with, she was able to seamlessly match my editing style so that when final galleries were submitted to my clients, you couldn't tell if I had done the edit or Janelle! What I love about photography is being with my clients and getting creative....I don't love the time on the computer making the images pop. Janelle allows me to do more of what I love...taking pictures! If you're considering an editor, I would highly recommend her"

"Seamlessly matched my editing!"

Janelle is amazing! She is an incredible communicator and from the beginning made us feel comfortable trusting her to edit our images. Our business was in a place where we were on the fence about hiring a private editor but it has been worth every penny. Janelle takes the time to get to know your style and is extremely responsive and has a great turn around time which is huge during our busy wedding season. Not only are the images she’s editing matching our style but beyond that, she values customer service and we would recommend her to anyone!

"Janelle takes the time to get to know your style!"

"I am so grateful that Janelle and I have been able to connect! From day one she has been so professional and wonderful to work with. She has helped alleviate a lot of stress from editing and has helped lighten my load a ton. Sometimes it can be very difficult being a mom and being pulled in so many different directions in life, but Janelle has made life so much easier for me! She is awesome at matching my style of editing and making sure that my images look exactly the way that I want them to look. She is very efficient and has a quick turn around time. Her communication skills are wonderful and she is one of the sweetest people I know! I would recommend her to anyone!!"

"She has helped alleviate a lot of stress!"

"I had known for months that the next step to elevating my business was hiring a private editor, but I didn't know it could be so easy! It's always a scary jump to make but Janelle make's the process seamless and fun! My two biggest worries in hiring an editor was that they wouldn't be able to match my editing style or that the image transfer process would be difficult. After our first time working together those worries faded instantly! She is there every step of the way making sure you understand how things work and making sure she is getting the images exactly how you want them! She is so incredibly talented and not only that she has a kind and understanding personality! I'm so grateful to have Janelle!"

  Outsourcing with Janelle has helped me get the time back that I so desperately need and want. Whats great is I still have some time invested in each gallery and my artistic touch to make it my own. The amazing thing is the in-between hours that take so much of my time away from my family, Janelle gets those hours. This is whats incredible! I adore Janelle! She’s the sweetest person to work with and her response time is so fast. I always feel connected with her, which makes me feel connected to my images. This is so important for the artist to feel this way while their work is in someone else’s hands. Outsourcing was a really scary thought and leap for me to take. Janelle has made me feel at ease every step of the way. Janelle's continuous drive to please and create edits that are just like my own is so refreshing. She wants to hear feedback whether there is any to give or not. I truly feel her number one goal is to make me happy and to always want to make sure her edits replicate what mine look like.!"

"Everyone needs a Janelle in their life!"

We found Janelle on Instagram while searching for hashtag privatephotoeditor. Once we got in touch, Janelle was very responsive and we set up a meeting to video chat. Janelle provided us with all information regarding the process and from there we could start right away. Which was great because we had a ton of editing work and still more client requests coming in. Once everything was set up - as easy as accepting a shared folder on Dropbox and that was it - we started uploading our files and Janelle would return us the edited work within a few days. Long story short, we are very happy with Janelle's response time, quality of work, turn around time. This totally changed our MO. We now have more time to take on more weddings = extra income! We also now have more family time, time to be creative, time to invest in some extra marketing efforts. We definitely recommend outsourcing your editing work to Janelle. It will surely change your game, just like it changed ours!
