Jake’s story

Jake Janes is a passionate photographer who turned his hobby into a career after shooting at the wedding of his friend’s sister. His journey into the wedding industry began in 2021, a decade after he first discovered his love for photography. Reflecting on his journey, Jake shares, “I never initially wanted to get into the wedding industry, but my first wedding changed everything. I fell in love with the emotion, the happiness, and the faces of the couple throughout the day… I’m super lucky to be able to do my hobby as a job, and share my creativity and passion with others on such a special day.”

Jake summarises why he loves what he does: “Giving confidence to people with limited confidence is a winning feeling. That’s what I love. That’s why I do this.”

Standout features

What sets Jake apart from other photographers is his personal approach to capturing moments. He explains, “I know I can capture the images that most other photographers can, so I ‘sell myself’ on a more personal basis.” Understanding the importance of comfort, he ensures that even the most camera-shy bride or groom feels at ease on their special day, allowing them to relax and have fun. In addition, Jake’s special understanding with mental health and body insecurities means that he will always support you with any insecurities you may have and make you feel fabulous! 

Another of Jake’s standout features is his involvement in the dancing festivities. While some photographers might stay on the sidelines, Jake immerses himself in the celebration, capturing candid shots of the dancing and the party. “Have you ever seen a photographer dance around with two cameras?” Jake asks. “Well, you’d have the pleasure of watching me groove while taking pictures!”

Jake’s highly personal and involved approach is clearly paying off! He is proud to have won a Bridebook Silver Award in 2024 in recognition of his glowing five-star couple reviews: “I’ve only been going for a small amount of time and been lucky enough to secure one award! It’s really incredible to know that the couples I work with have a five-star experience with me.”

Jake’s approach may be super relaxed and laid-back, but he’s also organised and meticulous. You’ll get to meet him a couple of times before your wedding to make sure you’re getting everything you want, and Jake will write everything down to ensure you’re both on the same page about what’s expected from the day: “But I’ll always make it fun, and will have a laugh and a joke with you along the way so we can all have a great time and share in the excitement.”
