Janise Witt Photography

From the moment she laid her eyes on a camera in her grandma’s desk at the age of 10, Janise has loved photography, it was like a found treasure, and it is the treasure in others which she enjoy bringing out into its full light. She continues to learn and evolve as an artist, because one of the things she enjoys about photography – it’s always expanding and changing. Now with digital photography, the expansion is like being catapulted into another galaxy, where the possibilities are infinite. The world around us changes, but the basics are still there – the wonderful celebrations of life and the unique stories which can be captured to seize your wondrous memories.

She has had the privilege of being a full time fine art photographer for 22 years and loves her art more now than when she began and and that totally excites her. She has a love of nature, people and all Earth’s family and so Sedona is a perfect home for Janise.  An avid hiker who enjoys bringing people out into the Red Rocks of Sedona is a natural way for her to continue to share her gifts with others.

She is an award winning wedding and portrait photographer that recently relocated to Arizona from her home state of Maine. She decided to make this move after visiting Arizona in 2012 on a personal journey where she found peace in her soul after the death of her husband and best friend in 2009. Her primary residence is now AZ but Maine will always be “home” and both have some of the most amazing backdrops for wedding and portrait photography a girl could ask for. She will continue to travel between both states and shoots worldwide. So no matter where you live, if you love her work, she would love to be your photographer.
