If you think of 2 of the warmest, kindest people you know…people who do every action with intentionality and care, who always put others before them, who welcome everyone into their fold, check in on you when you need it, and always make you feel seen and heard…that is Anne and Brian.  Their wedding day was one of the easiest, smoothest, most lovely wedding days and it is because of who they are.  They are SO other-centered that everything just flows easily…it is absolutely beautiful to see.  I LOVED seeing them interact with their wider circle of friends and family because they are just adored by everyone who knows them.

Anne and Brian are truly an amazing match, and I know their beautiful, classy wedding day was just the start of an incredibly meaningful, deep marriage.  I felt so much joy editing through these photos because it remind me of every sweet, meaningful moment of their day, and I hope these photos do the same for Anne, Brian, and their loved ones for years (and generations) to come.  That is what it’s all about for me.  Here is my view of their beautiful day! You guys…the groomsmen decided to pose in some of the “typical” bridesmaids type photos, all posed by themselves.  I’m telling you, these guys had us laughing ALL DAY…are these not the BEST?! And in the meantime, Anne and her mama were having the sweetest moments together as Anne turned into a bride! This first look was among the sweetest I have witnessed. I love every photo in this set so much! Married! This group was an absolute DELIGHT to photograph and spend tine with!  A reflection of Anne and Brian for sure. Such beauties! A must-do with a group like this. I absolutely adore these two!! Anne and Brian, I hope you loved these favorites while reliving your beautiful, meaningful, perfect day! I am SO thankful to have been a part of it all.

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?

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!).
