Kadelyn and Tyler’s wedding day was fought for and worked harder for than maybe any I can think of. They have been engaged for over 2 years and has so many curveballs thrown at them during planning…but they got to have their perfect day, on one of the most popular wedding dates of the year!
I actually had considered myself fully booked for months before I heard from Kadelyn, and had turned down quite a few weddings at that point. But their story- one of changing venues (to the most PERFECT place for them to get married– on family land!) and also losing their photographer and contacting so many before they found me…my heart honestly broke for them and I couldn’t say no.  And I am so glad I didn’t because I got to witness so much love, a whole lot of beauty, a huge family project, and a really good party as a part of this wedding day!

And when it came, nothing could stop them from enjoying every moment!  It was very windy on their wedding day, and Kadelyn and Tyler just rolled with every adjustment that had to be made for the wind.  Kadelyn took it all with such grace and after literally YEARS of planning, I think that would be really hard.  All in all, it was just a GORGEOUS day and I am so honored to have been a part of it! Enjoy my MANY favorites!

I LOVED Kadelyn’s bridal look! I LOVED these colors and tones! J. Blu Design KNOCKED it out of the park, as usual! One thing I LOVE about fall weddings is that golden hour fits SO easily into the timeline for those “just married!!” photos! Congrats to the new Mr and Mrs Walker!! I am SO happy for you both!!

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!

Are you a mom/hobbyist?

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!).
