Sarasota Wedding and Portrait Photographer

Romantic & Authentic Wedding Photography

Timeless & Whimsical Storytelling


Let’s Get To Know One Another...

Hey there, I'm Jonelle Forbes, and I'm all about capturing life's most precious moments in a fun and authentic way!

You know that feeling when you're talking to someone and it's just so easy and effortless? That's the kind of vibe I bring to my sessions. I love building real relationships with my clients, and I promise to make you feel comfortable and at ease in front of the camera.

I'm all about those genuine moments - the smiles, the hugs, the kisses - and I believe those are the things that truly make a photo special. So whether it's your wedding day or just a fun portrait session, I'm here to capture your unique story in a way that feels authentic to you.

As a mom, I know that life is messy and imperfect - but that's what makes it beautiful. That's why I value honesty, authenticity, inclusiveness, creativity, quality, and all the little details that make each person and each moment unique.

I'll bring all of these values to every photo session to create an experience that's truly one-of-a-kind. So let's capture some memories that you'll cherish for a lifetime!

Things I Love:

  • My family (which of course includes my two dogs!)
  • Photography
  • Elopements (I love adventure!)
  • Weddings
  • Couples who are in love
  • Thrifting & DIY
  • Traveling

My Background

I was raised with a love for photography. Since high school, I have been taking photos of friends, family, and anyone I could. I decided to turn my love for photography into my career in 2015. Being a photographer is NOT a job to me. It is my passion & I am forever grateful that I get to have this career. I love capturing the little details for my clients that make their big day amazing.

I Would Love To Be Your Photographer

Whether you need someone to capture your family portrait or are looking for a wedding photographer who is passionate and professional, I want to be the person behind the camera. I want to work with you to create gorgeous photos. During every photo session, I am searching for two things: perfect lighting and genuine moments. I also recognize that your story is different. And that comes through in every photo.

I look forward to meeting you...
