SHOOTING OUTDOORS IN WINTER WEATHER Ask Anything | Photographer Education

This video is for all of my fellow wedding photographers out there!!  Weather is one of the most stressed about aspects of a wedding day (especially if the wedding is outdoors) and can truly influence the entire day!  I have experienced some extreme weather conditions on wedding days…one October wedding dealt with temps in the 90s and the other wedding experienced almost freezing temperatures!  I’ve been there and I get it: weather can be SO stressful for a wedding photographer when trying to coordinate a huge bridal party and  while striving to “wow” the bride and groom with an amazing experience! So, because it is such an important topic I’ve decided to share some of my top tips for shooting outdoors in cold winter weather with you through a facebook live video!!!

In this video, I will cover:

  • My number one tip for dealing with the cold when outside
  • When it’s necessary to adjust the timeline of the day
  • How to utilize indoor space as needed.

I hope it is super helpful for you!

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 mom/hobbyist?

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!).
