If everyone’s loved ones were able to speak of them how Lauren and Landon’s people speak of Lauren and Landon, I am 100% positive this world would be an even more beautiful, loving, relational sort of place.  Lauren and Landon are universally  adored, respected, and admired by those closest to them, both as individuals and as a a couple (now husband and wife!!), and it is truly a beautiful thing to witness.  I also, before sharing the photos from this beautiful, meaningful wedding, have to share something that is still blowing my mind days later.  Landon’s parents had 3 boys; Lauren’s parents had 3 girls.  Landon’s dad shared, in an incredibly heartfelt toast, that they love being parents to their 3 boys…but always knew that if they had had a daughter, her name would be…wait for it…


And now they do!  Which is one of the many beautiful things about weddings, isn’t it?  How families get to add, multiply, gain members they always wanted but didn’t yet have.

Lauren and Landon got married at Landon’s childhood home, his family farm, and it was honestly such a beautiful picture of community, family, and love.   His parents, family, and Lauren and Landon prepped their farm for this day for months, and prepared perfectly- it was the most picturesque place possible for their wedding day, and they couldn’t have picked a more meaningful location!  I can’t wait to share my favorites of this beautiful day.

This was such a beautiful moment! First look time!
Lauren is surrounded in life by a large, strong, beautiful pack of women who lift her up and support her and who got to be a part of her wedding day– I just had to share them here! Married!! Could this be any prettier? Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Frye!  I’m so happy for you guys and honored to have witnessed 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!).
