I'm inspired and driven by the prospect of capturing the images that will be guiding your memory when you tell the story to your grandkids. One thing I can promise you is that we will have fun. I will get to know all the little details that make you guys... well YOU!
Ok, let's take a short little trip into the past so I can tell you exactly how I landed into the wonderful world of wedding photography. Picture it... Salisbury University, 2005. I graduated and decided to take my photo dream to Los Angeles. I had two well-renowned photographers take me under their wing and teach me what it was like to do this job for a living. After an incredibly exciting career in LA, cutting my teeth in fashion and lifestyle photography, I was hooked. So I decided to take the plunge and move to Nashville where the music scene was exploding. That is where my career took a crazy turn.
It was in that beautiful town I got the opportunity to photograph some of the biggest names in country music, like Luke Bryan, Thomas Rhett, Joe Don Rooney from Rascal Flatts and Philip Sweet from Little Big Town.
It was through those incredibly fortunate experiences that I found my calling in wedding photography. It was all the in between shots where I found myself goofing around with my subjects which seemed to produce the most organic moments. These always ended up being my absolute favorite shots. (Click! The sound of a light bulb went off in my head.) And where else do naturally happy moments occur other than weddings?! After my first few weddings I'd found my happy place, with couples on their big day. Seven years later I still wake up on my couple's wedding days giddy with excitement. I truly believe this is exactly what I was meant to do and with over 200 weddings under my belt, I can definitely say I've got worlds best job!
If you’re reading this and considering hiring Jill, stop what you’re doing immediately and hire her ASAP!! We found Jill after seeing her beautiful, stand out photos displayed at a venue and we could not be happier with our decision. She was a huge part of what made our wedding day so successful. We both don’t generally like being the center of attention, but Jill made taking our photos fun and effortless. She has a way of making you feel special and for once we both felt like models/movie stars in our photographs! We can’t stop looking back at our engagement and wedding photos to relive the memories and have gotten so many compliments from family and friends. One of our friends even mentioned wishing they had hired her for their wedding!! Taking photos with Jill is truly a dream. She brings so much energy and positivity when she enters a room and has such a wonderful sense of humor. Her team, including Rebekah, was also wonderful to work with. We’re both sad our wedding day is over because we don’t have an excuse to hang out with her anymore. We can’t say enough— she’s just the coolest! We’d give her a bajillion stars if we could.
When my now husband and I were just first planning our wedding, he said he said we could do whatever I wanted wedding-wise, but no photographer whatsoever.....until we met Jill. We met her at a wedding expo and after walking away from her stand, he leaned over to me and said “we can have a photographer if we hire her.” Thankfully she was available for our date! She checked in with us throughout the entire year during planning and was so attentive the week of to make sure things ran smooth. On the day of the wedding, she made everything so fun and natural. For two people who thought we would dread taking time out of the reception to take pictures, it was honestly one of our fondest moments of the day. She makes things so comfortable, just like hanging out with a friend...who’s snapping pics of you. I received my pictures back today and they’re more beautiful than I could have ever imagined! Jill, thank you for being you and the most talented photographer!! You added such a special touch to our wedding day!
Don’t even think twice about booking Jill. Brian and I said over and over again that she was the best vendor we booked for our wedding. Not only is she an amazing person that you’ll want to hang out with every day (she was literally pushing our baby nephew in his stroller during dinner so that my sister-in-law could eat), her photography is RIDICULOUS. She made me feel like Beyoncé and was worth every penny. I’m not so great with the words so just look at her pictures and freaking book her. If she’s booked on your wedding date, consider a different date. It’s worth it.
I don't know if there are enough nice words to say about Jillian. Her work is amazing and she truly made sure we remembered our wedding day through her beautiful photos. We stumbled upon Jillian a couple months before we actually met her for our engagement photo shoot. My husband and I are far from models but she showed us exactly how to do "the walk" and "the twirl" and made us feel so comfortable. She got our photos to us within a few weeks and we were in love. Fast forward to the wedding day. She showed up early to grab pictures of me and the bridesmaids, moms, family. She made me feel like an actual princess and her photos absolutely showed that. She's also a boss. She knows how to direct and lead everyone without coming off too abrasive. She kept my husband in check, which can be difficult at times. LOL! If you do choose Jillian, book her ASAP because the lady books up FAST. Don't skimp on the photographer, seriously!!! Much love to Jillian and her second photographer Mike as well as her assistant, Rebekah who drove back to my hotel room to grab the grooms ring a half hour before the ceremony. Ya'll are the best!!!!!!!!!
Jill is not only an amazingly talented wizard when it comes to photography, but she is also a spectacular human being. She makes you feel so at ease behind the camera, you feel like you are just laughing and taking a stroll through a field with your best friends. She is so warm, loving and comforting its like you've known Jill forever. Your pictures will absolutely blow you away. She has a super quick turn around and even gives you sneak peak shots to hold you over! Teamed up with her assistant, Rebecca, we were so taken care of by them our whole wedding day so we used our time wisely to get the best photos with the best lighting! Every single moment I remember through the night, Jill captured it. I don't know how one person was in a million places at one time but she captured it ALL! Thank you so much Jill and your team for making my wedding photos the most beautiful collection my husband and I will cherish for the rest our lives!!!
Seriously, book B.O.B. Photography and go worry about something else. Jill is the best in the business! Not only does her work speak for itself, but she is an awesome person and you will LOOOVVVVEEE working with her. Not too excited about getting your picture taken? Jill will make you laugh and your pictures will have real smiles. By the end of your experience with her you will see how much fun this is supposed to be. She's fun, talented, professional, and if she's available on your date then book her!
