Originally I Wanted to be a Forensic Photographer
My mother, an artist, gifted me a camera for my 8th birthday...
Crazy right? Well, a real life crime scene was a little too real for me! I'm a softy. I love sappy movies. I tear up during the vows at weddings and my heart just bursts during the father-daughter dances.
I'm drawn to the beauty and that electric feeling I get at weddings. The laughter, the emotions, the energy. It's such a special time in your life and wow it is such an honor to be there for you on that day!
The best part of my job are the adventurous people like you who I get to meet. I can't wait to talk to you soon!
How we met:
Favorite place I've traveled:
Something that may surprise you:
I rode my bicycle from Jacksonville, FL to San Fransisco, CA.
What I like to do in my free time:
Roller blade, hike, watch reality TV
This is my husband, Christian.
He loves to cook, clean, garden, read. Seriously how did I get so lucky? My husband loves working with numbers, so we're opposites in many ways. I love this nerd so much! He's the best cat dad ever, but I often get jealous of how our dog seems to love him more!
Christian and I had the most beautiful, intimate wedding in California last March. The thrill and stress of planning is still fresh in our minds. Spending our first year of marriage during a pandemic is something we hope to laugh about 20 years from now! Learning new work/life routines, taco nights on the front porch, many, many canceled plans, but never a dull moment. Our shared love of animals, travel, and the outdoors keeps things fun. We can't wait to reschedule our honeymoon to New Zealand!
Meet my office manager, Revy!
Revy is our 3 year old dramatic, sassy girl. She's a little too chatty to be joining us at your photo session, but she may make some appearances on my Instagram stories!

"Jill was an absolute dream to work with on our wedding day. Photography was a priority for us and that was the one thing we wanted to splurge on and Jill was worth every penny! She captured our day in the way we always imagined. She is a natural at directing you in the best way for the camera. I'm so incredibly happy we found her on Instagram! Planning our third wedding in a different state was daunting. The two other replans in California were cancelled due to Covid, so we decided to do a mini wedding at our family home in Colorado. We messaged Jill and when we spoke with her, she made us feel at ease. We knew we were in good hands!
Jill was so professional, very communicative, a joy to work with and her work is absolutely stunning. We HIGHLY recommend Jill, in fact you definitely need Jill to photograph your wedding!"
"Jill was incredible to work with!! She was so patient during our constant re-planning due to Covid, always providing helpful advice…it was a huge support to have her in our corner. The day of our wedding she was calm and confident, directing us when needed while also letting us do our thing and mingle with guests. We’ve only seen our sneak peak so far, but wow! She made us look so good and so natural (not easy with two camera shy individuals)! We can’t wait to see the rest! We love Jill!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!"

"Jill exceeded all of our expectations. I would recommend her to anyone! We're from Iowa and were blindly planning our destination wedding in Estes Park, CO. When we found Jill we could not let her get away. Her work speaks for itself and our interactions with her were all above and beyond. She helped us by giving suggestions of locations and vendors, helped us with a timeline for our day, and made us feel like everything would be taken care of! We're a little awkward and not used to being in front of a camera, but Jill is so professional and knows what she is doing. She took such good care of us. She told us exactly what to do and made us look natural while doing it. We could not be happier and could not recommend a photographer more. Thank you for providing us with beautiful memories that we will cherish forever!"

"You were awesome Jill! If I could give you a million stars just for how prepared, professional and sweet you are I would! And that's not even factoring how AWESOME the photos are."
