Want to know what it's like to be a 

Jill Gum Bride?

"Jill was the best decision of our day!" 

"The finished product from both our engagement and our wedding day was breathtaking. Jill brought with her a sense of calm and professionalism the day of.  She is a pro.

I can't say enough great things about Jill and her work. She is just the best."

-Taylor + Cory

"my husband and I are so lucky we got to work with Jill!"

"Until you experience first hand what it is like to have Jill Gum as your photographer, you might not understand what "all the rage is," but I'll try to put it into words. Jill and her husband made my day absolutely perfect. They went above and beyond to be as helpful & calming as possible! 

Jill continues to be in touch and sent us multiple keepsakes after our big day. Our pictures are better than I could have ever imagined!"

-Kylie + Eric

"an amazing photographer, incredibly organized, and uplifting...She was PERFECt!"

"Jill was such a joy. She was professional throughout the entire experience and does such quality work... and such a great addition to the day. I loved having her there while I was getting ready. Such a calming presence.

My entire family loved her so much that we've used her for family photos since our wedding. I could not say enough about Jill's work!"

-Anna + Josh

"Jill did everything to make my day perfect."

"When you choose Jill for your wedding, you don't just get a photographer. You get a wedding planner, a confidant, a beauty consultant, and a new best friend. Jill was absolutely PHENOMENAL. The photos are stunning and professional - gorgeous use of soft light without unnecessary stylizing! Jill made every single part of my day special. 

Jill is the BEST choice for your wedding pictures - no contest."

-Molly + Patrick

"If you want a wedding photographer that goes above and beyond and will make your day stress-free...Jill is your girl!"

"I honestly don't even know where to begin except with the fact that Jill Gum Photography is the best!
The whole experience we had with Jill from the beginning to the end of our wedding journey was SO organized, detailed, and just an overall easy process. Jill gives great advice and just makes you feel comfortable.

She's not only an amazing photographer, she's a great friend." 

-Kristyn + Dustin

"We had a wonderful wedding and Jill was a huge part of that."

"When you trust Jill to be your photographer, you will get more than just a photographer. She will also be your friend, event planner, bridesmaid, "corral-er of people," advice-giver, listener, confidante. She was always available and was endlessly patient to answer my questions, give me advice, schedule (and reschedule) shoots. She understands that weddings are a momentous event and works extremely hard to make sure your photos turn out perfectly without being intrusive."

-Nini + Jim

"We are SO in LOVE with all of our photos."

"Jill was an essential part of our entire wedding experience. She is extremely helpful with all wedding questions (not just photos), quick to respond and is truly a wonderful person. Jill is absolutely wonderful to work with and when people ask about our wedding and what we liked most, she is at the TOP of our list!

Matt and I felt so blessed to have Jill as our wedding photographer and part of our special day!"

-Cass + Matt

"it was very important to me that I have an awesome wedding photographer and Jill was THE ONE!"

" Not only is Jill very talented, she is one of those people you feel like you have known forever when you first meet her because she is so personable and kind. Through your photos, you will be reminded of how beautiful your flowers were, how amazing your bridal party looked, how gorgeous your reception hall was, and most importantly, that first moment you see your husband standing there waiting for you. AND THAT'S JUST THE BEGINNING!
I not only consider her my wedding photographer, but I now consider her a friend!."

-Maggie + Blake

"the photos will be timeless, cherished art in our home for years to come." 

"Jill's personality is the type that can make you feel like you've known her for years within a few minutes. She was so focused all day on capturing the details we mentioned, but also serving us.  You could tell all day that she really cared.
When we received our first round of photos within 4 days of the wedding, we were BLOWN AWAY! 

While we LOVE our photos, the thing I am happiest about in regards to choosing Jill Gum Photography is that Jill made our day so easy.  Her heart shines in her work and she's a pleasure to be around."

-Cassandra + matt

"Jill makes you feel special
and beautiful!"

"When it came to booking a photographer for my wedding I knew exactly who I wanted! As a hair and makeup artist, I knew just from doing hair and makeup at weddings and working with so many different photographers that Jill was the one that always stuck with me. She isn’t just a photographer either, she helps keep everything and everyone on track for the entire day!

And I mean....can we talk about THE PICTURES!!!  So beautiful, natural, and airy. My husband and I enjoyed her work so much she has done our engagement, wedding, and soon our new bundle of joy."

-Erica + dylan
