While I will always lead people first in my business and my biggest source of joy is from the people I work with and the relationships I get to build as a result of it…I am SUPER girly and I also loooooove all of the “pretty” that comes along with this job!  Flowers, jewelry, dresses, decor, and shoes…give me all the shoes…it is such a fun and highly creative part of the job for me.  It’s not just about capturing the little details that my couples spend so much time (and candidly, money!) choosing and putting together.  It’s about showcasing the overall style of the day, and how those decisions reflect the couple’s style that is so exciting to me!  I work really hard to combine details and put them together in a way that really reflects all of that!

So this post shares all of my favorites, and I can’t wait for you to see them all! Be prepare for a lot of pretty– these brides and grooms of mine (and their amazing planners/coordinators!) have excellent taste!

I also wanted to share these 2 resources that would be super helpful for couples planning weddings all about bridal details!  The first?? Sign up below and grab my free checklist for brides including all of the important (and some surprising!) wedding day-of details you don’t want to forget!

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!

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!).
