HELLO BEAUTIFUL BRIDE!

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!). 

Read on to learn all about the JGP wedding experience and what it's like to have me join your day!

THE

WEDDING

EXPERIENCE

JILL GUM

What to expect when you choose Jill as your wedding photographer.

JILL GUM WEDDINGS

THE EXPERIENCE

 After years of experience, I compiled a list of all coverage I believe a couple needs to get to ensure the best wedding experience possible, and decided it would not be fair to my clients to offer anything less than that.  This is how the Wedding Experience was created.  I want my couples to be able to enjoy time with your friends and family, get beautiful portraits of the two of you that show your love and joy, have images that tell a full story of the day you have planned so much for, and last but not least have a minimal-stress wedding day! The "Wedding Experience" is designed to give you just that!

BOOKING AND PLANNING

JILL GUM WEDDINGS

BOOKING & PLANNING

After we settle on the details of your wedding experience, we will book you through an easy online system--and then the fun begins! You will be sent my custom Jill Gum Bridal Guide with everything you need to know about your wedding experience, and we will begin to plan your engagement session!

ENGAGEMENT SESSION

ENGAGEMENT SESSION

This is one of my favorite parts! I will send you a custom online PDF to help you plan what to wear, and we will choose perfect locations that represent you as a couple! When we meet, it will be just like a fun date night- I will walk you through everything you need to do, and you and your fiance just get to have fun. This is time for you to get comfortable in front of a camera stress free, and most importantly, for us to get to know each other!

QUESTIONNAIRE

JILL GUM WEDDINGS

QUESTIONNAIRE

As your wedding day gets closer, I will send you an online questionnaire that will help us finalize all the details of your day, including your timeline. We love creating custom timelines for our couples, using all of our experience, to make sure your day is perfect and can be photographed like you dream! After this, we can touch base by phone and talk through any remaining questions/details a couple of weeks before your wedding!

WEDDING DAY

WEDDING DAY

It's your wedding day!! 

 It will be a beautiful and incredible day to start the next chapter of your life! I can't wait to celebrate with you. I will capture all of the moments of your day, beginning with details and bridal prep and ending with dancing (with a second shooter to help!). You will have memories to pass down to generations to come of the love that started it all.  And-- you will get to see a large amount of those memories featured on the blog within 3-4 days! 

GALLERY DELIVERY

JILL GUM WEDDINGS

ALBUM & WALL ART

If you choose to include a Legacy Album in your wedding experience, I will begin the album design process shortly after you receive your digital gallery. I will start with a custom layout of spreads and images, and you will get to edit each of those until it is perfect. Then we choose cover options and finalize details, and your album will ship to you about a month later. You can also order canvas wall art for your walls through your gallery for a discounted price.
