Winter New Years Eve Glamorous Winery WeddingBenjamin + Brittin | Married
What a PERFECT end to my 2022 season!!! Brittin and Ben’s wedding day was unseasonably warm, perfectly not-too-sunny, and full of glam and fun. It was truly a beautiful day! Ben and Brittin have been together for a very long time, and you can see how deeply intertwined their friendships and loved ones are because of it. They are well known, well loved, and were so well celebrated on their wedding day. Brittin’s classy style fit a NYE wedding SO well and I loved the way she put together the whole day! I was so thankful to get to capture this gorgeous wedding between a couple that truly loves each other so well. I can’t wait to share these many favorites!
Brittin you are gorgeous!!! So many favorites!
Congrats to the new Mr and Mrs Hollis!! I am so happy for you and it was such an honor to be a part of it!!

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!).
Jill Gum photographs brands, weddings, and portraits and is based in Springfield, IL and serving the midwest and beyond. Jill also teaches only courses for moms who want to learn to photograph their kids and photographers who want to build a business that provides and thrives.
