Stephanie and Daniel’s Northwestern Campus spring wedding began bright, crisp, and beautiful for us with an early drive to Chicago.  I was so excited for their day because I have known Stephanie’s mom for a long time, and I was so honored that they chose me for their day!  We were also so excited to shoot at the Women’s Club of Evanston and the campus because I fell in love with Northwestern’s campus as a girl, and just remembered how beautiful it was.  Stephanie got ready surrounded by her mama, 2 sisters, and 3 close friends and there was just a calm about them that I love to see.  Everyone was just excited about the day, without any major nerves or worries.  Daniel and his groomsmen were much the same– low key and easy going all morning.  The fun really began when the whole group got together– there was definitely an energy about them that I LOVED, and you will see it in their photos!  We went to a few of Daniel’s favorite locations from his days as a Northwestern student and it was truly just beautiful.  Stephanie and Daniel were smiling and happy all day long, and seemed just so ready for this day they had been dreaming about for so long.

Stephanie is such a timeless beauty!! First look with dad, and then the soon-to-be husband and wife! I could not have loved this location more! So many favorites in this set! This location, with Chicago popping out in the background, was just perfect! There were SO many beautiful spaces in the Women’s Club for photos…it was a GORGEOUS venue!! An absolute favorite round of sunset photos! This may have bene the most active dance floor I have photographed in a long time– there was NO ONE left in their seats when the dance music started!  I loved it!

Stephanie and Daniel, it was truly an honor to photograph your day and get to meet your loved ones!  Thank you for trusting us– it was truly so beautiful and I hope these photos serve as that reminder for years (and generations!) to come.  Full gallery coming soon!

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!).
