  • Spruce Mountain Ranch – Amanda + Cary

    Amanda and Cary got married at Spruce Mountain Ranch in Larkspur, CO. It was a stormy day–but still very beautiful with the fog and rain! They were such troopers coming out with me even though it was freezing outside. Spruce Mountain Ranch is a working cattle ranch that also serves as a gorgeous wedding venue. There are mountains in all directions and the modern/rustic feel of the venue is

    Colorado Mountain Cabin Wedding – Megan + Sam

    A Colorado Mountain Cabin Wedding is right up my ally. This wedding could not have been more beautiful!

    Evergreen Backyard Wedding – Deryn + Alex

Hello, I’m Jill! I’m a professional Wedding Photographer in Denver, Colorado and a HUGE animal lover. I specialize in lifestyle wedding and portrait photography. My style looks a lot like documentary photography meets the pages of a magazine. I love capturing the world as I see it. Check out the blog for the most recent photographs of what I’ve been up to in Denver, Golden, Costa Rica…or wherever life takes me.

I grew up in Merritt Island, FL. My mother is an artist and I was always stealing her camera and capturing photos of frogs and colorful bugs. When I was eight-years-old my parents gave me my first camera. And so from a very young age I learned about color, composition and leading lines. I would actually pay my sisters (because they wouldn’t do it for free) to sit for me so I could test different light. I learned how to photograph subjects in a way that was natural and didn’t look forced.

I try not to draw my inspiration from other wedding photos. Rather I pore over the pages of Vogue, GQ and Maxim. My favorite part about wedding photography is how many different types of photography that you get to shoot in one day. Portraits, landscapes, still-life, documentary.

I think documenting life is so important.

And documenting weddings is maybe the most important.

I capture weddings in a way that I would want someone else to capture my own. I am detail obsessed. I know when emotional moments are coming. And I love to deliver beautiful images.

I’d be delighted to sit down and hear about that details of your wedding. Every wedding is different and the amount of images to be captured makes us creatives go wild. Take a look around the site and send me a little note. I can’t wait to hear from you!
