FEATURED: THE DAILY WEDDING Spring Romantic Blush and Black Jane Austen Inspired Wedding

As far as favorites go….we try not to have them. But when she is your student turned lead turned babysitter turned friend turned assistant…well then, we get to have a favorite. And this was one of the top.  Sarah and Jacob’s May wedding this year was a highlight of my wedding career so far for so many reasons, and that is why I was so excited when The Daily Wedding  decided to feature this wedding! Their post about it is beautiful, highlighting the romantic and literature-inspired decor of this wedding.  They also shared a lot of their beautiful portraits.

Sarah worked so hard planning this day with her now husband and her mother (and some of her planning process is being shared in this series here!), and it made for a beautiful day. But it was truly so much more than the details, and Sarah’s beautiful dress, and how did she do her makeup herself, and the fence her dad made that made the day what it was. And it was even more than my sweet little man being the ring bearer to the most adorable flower girl.  It was about the love…between the bride and the groom, their families, and their friends.  It was such a BEAUTIFUL day and I am so happy to share my favorites here again, and so honored for the feature. Thanks, The Daily Wedding!

I'm Jill, a wedding and portrait photographer based out of Chicago and Central Illinois, and available world wide! I'm also a photography educator, wife to my favorite person on the planet, mama to 3 amazing kids and an energetic Aussie, and obsessed with statement jewelry and all desserts (especially fruit pies!). 

As a past high school teacher, I have a major heart for education. After going full time in my business, I have built a business I love that gives me an almost 6 figure salary and allows me to be home part time with my kids.  I dream for you to run a business that enhances your life and lights you up, and I believe I can help you learn how to do it with a little hustle and a lot of heart!

Hello Friend!

Are you a Photographer?

Start HERE! 

Are you a mom/hobbyist?

Start HERE! 

You're in the right place!  As a past high school teacher, educating others is my life's work and a HUGE part of my business!  I have been teaching moms and hobbyists how to use their camera from first purchasing it all the way to coaching them into businesses of their own, and I'd love to help you as well, wherever you are (and whatever camera you have!).

I'm so glad you are here!  Teaching Photographers and other small business owners how to run more joyful, successful, and profitable businesses is one of my favorite parts of my business!  I specialize in working with photographers to make their goals a reality (or figure out what their goals should be in the first place!).
