we want to make it linger

This Moment Won't Be Over in a Day

The moments we love the most seem to go by too fast. And while we wish we could pause and rewind your big day like we do with The Office reruns, we can do something better. We help you surround yourself with stunning wedding photos that brim with so much meaningful emotion, you can keep reliving your wedding while moving forward in your new adventure as a couple

can we tell you more?

come alive

a photography experience that makes you

With more laughter, excitement, trust, and confidence.

Our zest for people and photography is larger than life. We bring that liveliness to you because nothing should get you down on your big day, especially the woes that come with the wrong wedding photographer.

We don't simply employ a failproof and secure backup system and have contingency plans for our contingency plans, we add warmth, fun, and BFF vibes to the mix.

show me how we can work together

In 2007, I picked up a camera, and 350+ weddings later, I've never looked back. I have a BFA in photojournalism but what I love most about this gig is the people. I still get giddy about every single wedding and love making people smile. 

If you were to ask any of my previous couples what's one thing they remember about working together, I would bet my Golden Girls memorabilia collection it's that I got them to laugh. 

I'm not sure if it's my avid knowledge of The Office trivia or sincere curiosity about learning your love story and personality, but I have always had a knack for making people feel uncommonly comfortable. This comes in handy while working with those certain someones who aren't so keen on having their pictures taken.

that's what people say when they leave a review about B.O.B 

Hey there! I was born and raised outside Washington D.C. and am a self-taught film photographer-turned-digital. My passion for photography started at a young age while working for a fashion blog, but quickly turned to weddings. 

In 2012, when my colleague's photographer canceled at the last minute, I was asked to take her wedding photos. I left for upstate New York at 4am and got home to Baltimore at 5am the next morning, and loved every second of it. Since then, I've been capturing couples' stories both nationally and internationally. My work has been featured by the The New York Times, Baltimore Weddings, Hill City Bride, Associated Press, and Yahoo News. I currently live in Capitol Hill, DC with my wife Gabby and dog Arlington.

Hey you! I joined the BOB team part-time in 2016 and came on full-time in the winter of 2018. Couples say they love me because I'm a force to be reckoned with on their wedding days. As the BOB Events Manager, I love to lend a hand and help your wedding flow smoothly.

I have a degree in interior design and was a project manager in a custom home and kitchen design company from 2005 through 2012. Then I entered the wonderful world of weddings in 2012 as a lead planner for Moore & Co. Events. During that time, I did everything from selecting vendor teams to helping couples select their theme and design plan to finalizing timelines. I've been married to my husband Brian for 11 years and have two wonderful kids, Judah and Everly. Jill and I are attached at the hip on wedding days and wouldn't have it any other way.

Your Search for a Photographer is OVER

Our photographs are PHENOMENAL. Everyone who has seen the wedding album is absolutely obsessed with them.

I am so happy that we have such beautiful memories that will last forever. Jill makes taking photos so comfortable and fun. Before our engagement shot, I had never had professional pictures taken and thought it was going to be so awkward. Jill has such an amazing and positive personality that she makes everything feel so natural. Some of our 'fake laughing' shots were actually real laughs because of how funny she is. Everyone at our wedding loved her. Her assistant Rebekah is just as perfect. Prior to the wedding, we spoke with her about a shot list to make sure everything was organized. Jill is a beautiful soul who will give you gorgeous memories of the best time of your life. Seriously, you don't need to look at another photographer's review page. You've found your girl!

Our couples brag - about big bursts of laughter and beautiful photos they're obsessing over.

We've made it our mission to understand you. We know you want a good creative eye who can capture the essence of your venue. You need someone with vision who shoots really beautiful works of art. And you'd love it if you had a friendly photographer who made your friends and family feel comfortable when everyone's just rushing around trying to look their best and do their part.
