Reilly & I have been having a FREAKING BLAST exploring Arizona. Not only are we so happy about our recent move to Sedona but it has inspired us to travel even more around the country. There are all these incredible hidden pockets that are soo inspiring to think about traveling to. I can feel a road trip around Arizona coming up!
So far this year I have 4 weddings booked out of state and next year I plan to double that number! You can always check out my travel dates to see if I’ll be in your area!
Here are some frames of our adventures from my personal instagram @janeferrell_ Follow me there for my pink sharpie, Fae-obessed non wedding life xoxox
I have to say… we are becoming big big fans of the Southwest. Maybe now I’ll be
I am so immensely inspired by the land! So far this year I have 5 out of state weddings booked and next year I plan to double that number. It’s so incredible how you can love your love even harder when it’s immersed in your wedding venue, your chosen cathedral of nature. The enchanted nature you feel moved by, the nature that speaks to you and lifts your spirit. That lightness & freedom is one of the very best kinds of feelings. Those moments of quiet stillness hold everything. You can read more about how passionate & rooted I am in nature & land ›here‹
There are a few more that are still up in the air because our new babe but I’ll update this as things progress! If I am coming to your area please feel free to drop me a line & we can chat about a photo session in your favorite nature, the place where you feel rooted, connected & divine.
My lovely florist friend Sarah at Selva Foral Design in Portland really has the best eye for florals around. This photo has definitely stood the test of time. A major factor in being a photographer is being able to edit, edit, edit, always just go with your gut & stick with what you love.
I feel so blessed to be able to work on developing my eye everyday. I am an artist because it is what I was created to be.
The time has come! Our precious little Fae is due any day now.
I will not be taking on any projects or clients for the next two months. I will only be checking my e-mail occasionally so I might take a little longer to respond but I promise I will get back to you!
Cheers and have a wonderful rest of the year! xoxoxox
››› I was just going about my day workin’ when a full box of Eugene Wedding’s Magazine was put into my hands. Time stood still and I was completely frozen while simultaneously unable to control myself. Shaking my hands like crazy and tearing up I was honored.
Ben & Christel were a really special couple & seeing their love grace the pages of a publication was wonderful. Cheers to a full life!
// Additionally, I also had the pleasure of contributing to the magazine as a wedding style advisor. Check out that article › here

››› Next weekend I’m traveling to Oregon to shoot a Portland Wedding & then a costal elopement that I could not be more anxious for. The bride sent me the Pinterest board of her vision and it’s so Northwest in all the best ways. it is truly the greatest gift to be able to make art with people [and wear your hunter boots while making it!] The Northwest fog will be so welcomed after flying out of Phoenix.
In other news, Sedona is actually an excellent place for growing magnolias and many other kinds of luscious blooms & greens. When I gathered these beauts [below] in the spring it was a little bitter sweet, Oregon is so full of lush greenery that any day is pretty much a good day to forage for a bouquet. So when contemplating moving to Sedona, I was very much looking forward to an intensely epic succulent garden but I figured my house would never be filled with quite as much woodland life. Looks like everything is working out wonderfully.
Moving to Sedona, Arizona while 6 months pregnant has been one of the biggest adventures we’ve ever embarked on and we have ›› honestly ‹‹ loved every second of it. There are so many wonderful & mind-blowing things ahead and I can’t wait to photograph the heck out of it all.
I also want to announce that I will be charging into new territory! I will be brining on an associate photographer, traveling more and mostly importantly I will be telling more swoon-worthy love stories in the trees.
››› Jane in the Woods Photographie will now be serving many locations on the West Coast: Sedona, Long Beach & Eugene. Those are the three main hubs of service and all wedding collections will included travel to those locations plus two hours driving time around them. If you live far away from Sedona don’t be shy! I’ll stay with friends, get rides & do everything in my power to keep travel expenses low so that we can can make some fantastic art together.
