Terrie always knew that a career in the creative field was meant to be her future. Growing up, Terrie’s passion drew her towards music and her original plan was to become a music teacher despite her father’s early intuition that she would make an amazing business woman. However, photography was always a constant in her life. As the oldest of five siblings, documenting her brothers and sister throughout their lives played a huge part in her creative development. Even while pursuing her Bachelor’s Degree in Music, at Queens College, Terrie was consistently photographing weddings on the weekends in addition to taking fellow musicians’ head shots and documenting their performances.
In 2009, Terrie’s love of photography finally proved to be her true passion when she saw Janelle Brooke’s advertisement in a local newspaper. Janelle’s artistic vision compelled Terrie to ask if she needed help with her new, growing business and she’s been her right hand gal ever since. This marriage of Janelle’s vision and Terrie’s business savvy has made Janelle Brooke Photography the success that it is today. In addition to being the lead photographer on weddings and portrait shoots, Terrie's quirky personality and fresh artistic eye are pivotal in the everyday operations of JBP. She is a major player behind the scenes, providing the JBP team with personalized tech support and keeping on top of new developments in the ever-changing camera industry.
Terrie’s work has been featured in various magazines and blogs, including: Brides Magazine, Woman’s Day Australia, Manhattan Bride Magazine, Style Me Pretty, WellWed and Trendy Bride Blog.
