Hello there! My name is Jill and seriously though… I truly live for real smiles. If you were to chat with any one of my previous couples and ask them one thing that they remember about our experience working together, I would bet my Golden Girls memorabilia collection it would be that I got them to laugh. I can't even guess at the number of times I've heard one of my couples describe themselves as “awkward.” Challenge accepted! I love awkward, I love shy, I love a chatty social butterfly or a stoic Ron Swanson. I love it all. Most of all, I love the opportunity to explore and find the thing that produces the natural smiles reflected in the images you see throughout my galleries.
I'm not sure if it's my avid knowledge of Golden Girls or The Office trivia, my ability to act like a goofy fun loving kid and twirl my couples around or just trying to dig deeper into what makes your love story unique. I have always had a knack for making people feel oddly comfortable. I truly believe this is part of the reason why my images look so natural. Whether I have known you my entire life or we just met for the first time heading into your engagement session, I can promise you that by the end of our shoot, you will feel like we’ve been friends for years. I'm gonna get ya!
I love making people smile and the connections shared between a couple. I love that I still get giddy excited for every single wedding this far into my career. When you book with me, you won’t just be a client. You will become one of my friends. I want to know everything about you. How you met, how the proposal happened, what silly pet names you call each other and I will more than likely become the person you text when you start getting stressed about your wedding. Don't worry, I got you. I will be your wedding Yoda. Sorry... Be your wedding Yoda I will. Nailed it!

I married my person. We dated through college but took different paths after graduation. But thanks to FaceBook and the right timing, we found each other ten years later. He's my best friend, keeps me grounded and is the only person I want to talk to at the end of a long day. I have a little boy named Clark who keeps me on my toes and is the love of my life. I have a bonus kiddo named Leela, she's the sweetest little girl you will ever meet. Blanche was my Golden Girl puppy... She will forever be the best dog on the planet. Speaking of the GG's, I have an abnormal obsession with that show. I have since I was in high school. I could literalIy quote any episode. I have watched all nine seasons of The Office more times than I care to admit. I love good coffee. And a good sunset will stop me in my tracks!
Rebekah joined the B.O.B team part time in 2016 and came on full time in the winter of 2018. My couples all know and adore her because she is a force to be reckoned with on their wedding days.

She then entered the wonderful world of weddings in 2012 as a lead planner for Moore & Co. Events. During that time she did everything from selecting vendor teams, to helping couples selecting their overall theme and design of the events. Along with creating and solidifying time lines for couples big days. She and her husband Brian have been together for 11 years and have two wonderful kids, Judah 5 and Everly 2. She is a staple of the BOB team and if you know Jill, you know the lovely Rebekah as the two are attached at the hip on wedding days!
