Springtime Purple and Pink Elegant Poe’s Catering Wedding Scott & Alison | Married

This beautiful spring purple wedding was the sweetest day for the sweetest couple! Alison and Scotty stole my heart when I met them for their engagement session with their calm and sweet nature and it flowed through their entire wedding day!! There two are so settled and grounded together, and this day truly felt like 2 long time best friends and all their favorite people hanging out and joining together…simple, easy, and absolutely mean to be.  I loved it so much!  Alison and Scott really prioritized family formals time to get photos with so many of their nearest and dearest and it was so special to see them greet each person with such kindness and warmth…they clearly prioritize their people regularly in their day to day life too and it is just beautiful see.  Even on a day that feels high stakes and high pressure, the love they have for all their favorite people was so evident!  Here are some of my favorites from their day!

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!

Hello Friend!

Are you a Photographer?

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!).
