Cassie and Andy’s wedding day was filled to the brim with warmth and joy between them and their loved ones, and it was so special to be a part of!  This early fall wedding had the world’s most perfect weather and started at Cassie’s parents farm, which was just the most perfect backdrop.  I adored Cassie and Andy together from the moment I met them, and will not forget what Andy said to me at Cassie, and how he knew she was someone he wanted to pursue.  It just came down to 3 little things.

1). She loved Jesus

2). She was a daddy’s girl

and 3). She was interested in the farm life that he loved.

Simple, to the point, and perfect for them.  They truly are a beautiful match and they love each other so very well!  Their wedding party included so much family, their siblings signed their marriage license (this is a tradition that I LOVE regardless of who your best man or maid of honor is!), extremely heartfelt and funny speeches were given…it is just so clear in every part of their day that Cassie and Andy love their people well, and are very well loved in return.  They have super long term friendships and close bonds with those around them. It was all beautiful to witness, and I’m so happy for them all! Here are some of my many favorites!

Just love a first look with dad!!

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!).
