Oden + Janelle are amazing! They were willing to go above and beyond for us including coming to Chicago to do our engagement photos and on the day of spent 25 minutes helping me get red wine out of my dress!  They are such an amazing team and do such great work, stop looking and just book Oden + Janelle!

If you are looking for wedding photographers, stop looking and book Oden & Janelle! You won’t be disappointed. It by far, was the best decision we made when planning our wedding. They kept everything on track for us and also kept us very calm. I don’t know what we would have done without them. So many people told us that our photos belong in a magazine. 

We know that Oden and Janelle will take many, many more family photographs throughout our lives. We feel like we have made life-long friends. We truly love Oden & Janelle.

The best decision we made about the entire wedding was choosing Oden + Janelle. You get so much more than amazing pictures.  With these two it was basically impossible for anything to wrong.  We don't know how we would have made it through the day without them.  They capture the moment and get the action.  

Oden + Janelle are amazing at capturing candid moments.  They are fantastic to work with, the whole process was so much fun and we loved all of the photos! They are such a pleasure to be around, they were so much more than photographers for us.  It felt like one of our friends were with us, they were phenomenal!

"Picking Oden + Janelle as our photographers was one of the best decisions we ever made.  It felt like we had our best friends taking our pictures! We feel so blessed that we had the opportunity to work with such an amazing couple, we wouldn't change a single thing about our experience!

There are not enough kind words to describe how much we LOVED Oden + Janelle, they were absolutely amazing! It truly was as if our good friends were just snapping shots of us. They are so sweet and SO much fun. My husband and I laughed so hard every time we were with them. They have a gift of capturing the love between a couple and the beauty of each moment. Oden + Janelle weren't just our photographers, they became our friends!


Oden and Janelle are incredible wedding photographers and super great people to work with. From beginning to end, Oden and Janelle were a true pleasure to work with and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend them for anyone! :)

Oden + Janelle were incredible. We honestly could not have asked for a better experience. It felt like we were hanging out with a couple of friends. They also went so ABOVE AND BEYOND what you would ever expect and helped out with so many aspects of the day, helping to make everything run smoothly. We received so many compliments on their friendliness and professionalism. I cannot tell you how many times we heard "you're photographers are amazing" or "your photographers are the best."

If you're reading this, you have probably looked at a million photographers and are very overwhelmed by the choices. My husband and I both felt that our entire wedding day moved smoothly because of Oden + Janelle. Picking Oden + Janelle as your photographers is the easy part; choosing your favorite photos they capture won't be.

The most important vendor on our list was a photographer.  After our video chat we immediately booked them! They were both a pleasure to work with and did an amazing job capturing our day.  They were a joy to be around and made everyone feel comfortable. We loved every single one of our photos, they captured everything!

We love Oden + Janelle sooo much! They are incredibly talented, fun, unpretentious, real and funny.  As with any wedding we had a few things go wrong, and they were both there in a pinch offering suggestions and their help.  We truly cannot recommend them enough, we plan to work with them for many years to come!
