Jane G. Photography
Professional sports, wedding and portrait photographer.
More than 10 years ago, I stepped into the world of photography, and I have not looked back. What started as wedding and sports photography has expanded to include families, brand, and lifestyle photography too.
I am passionate about sharing your unique journey and story through the photographs we create together. I have been on the sidelines for Seattle’s most beloved teams, serving as a photographer for the Seattle Sounders, Reign FC, and the Seattle Seahawks. I am dedicated to the work I create and the people I collaborate with.
Do You Have A Good Tip For Us?
Never stop shooting. Photograph through the moments.
From wedding chaos to family sessions – to commercial shoots with athletes and executives
I pride myself on the skills that weddings + sports have created for me. I always tell potential clients: In sports, I can’t recreate moments. I have to make a good -> great image no matter the circumstances. From crazy weather to gear malfunctioning. The experience and confidence I have in myself after years of hiccups and bumps in the road, has pushed me and helped me be ready for anything.
Sometimes I feel a bit crazy, a bit OCD because I’m over ready. But I think that kind of mentality and preparation comes with the territory.
Current times with COVID has definitely changed the scene of photography for everyone. I never thought I would be on set for a shoot, masked up, keeping my distance and directing / engagement with the client with all my body language and 6+ feet away.
I’ve been to two Super Bowls, both incredibly different experiences and outcomes from each other. I have photographed a Women’s World Cup and managed being an absolute crazy womens soccer fan – containing myself and still focussed on the job at hand.
That’s what is so special about this creative medium — the learning curve is so steep and comes at you so fast. There are no shortcuts, there is no way to cheat the system. The sweat equity is real and it pays off.

Jane is a talented sports and wedding photographer who has worked very hard honing her skills. She photographed our son and daughter-in- law’s wedding last year. I was amazed how she had a firm but soft touch with organizing every one with set shots and making them feel relaxed. On the spontaneous
photos she melded into the crowd shooting away while really no one was really aware. The photos were unique, warm and communicated the beauty of the day! Congrats Jane!
