I’m so excited to pick my Wedding Wednesday series up again in 2022, starting with one of my favorite moments from wedding days (and moments that make me dream of my own daughter’s wedding even more!)–a first look with the bride and her dad!
First looks with the bride and groom are obviously very popular, but it’s not as common to photograph the bride’s dad seeing her in her wedding gown for the first time on her wedding day.
If you’re a bride and you’re not sure if you want a “first look” with your dad, here are a few of my thoughts:
If you’re still not sure about a first look with your dad, take a look at some of my all-time favorite images from these first looks over the years!
I cannot be the only one who adores these moments!! I know it isn’t for every bride, but carving out special moments like this with those most important to you (it could also be with a brother, bff, or even grandparent!) is SO WORTH IT, every time!!

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!).
