I believe that you shouldn't have to sacrifice quality and heartfelt service for luxurious wedding photography. Or sacrifice high quality wedding photography for the same sentimental service as your favorite local mom and pop shop.

THE HEART BEHIND my WORK

the Process

When directing portraits during a session or wedding, I focus on a combination of a few elegant poses mixed with more laid-back romantic prompts. You can expect poses that are flattering, easy to understand, and that feel as simple as walking in the park with your partner.

Leading up to your engagement session, we'll chat about how to make both you and your partner feel comfortable, bringing out your personalities, and any other concerns that you might have to leave you both feeling relaxed and prepared for the shoot, and in turn, feeling just as relaxed on your wedding day.   

More Moments,
Less Poses

how it works —

Once your date is officially reserved, we'll send over a few goodies to help you prepare for the big day. We're happy to serve as a resource for vendor recommendations, timeline guidance and more!

Date Booked!

the process —

Sessions can take place anywhere from immediately following a proposal to just a few days before the wedding. We’ve found that there isn’t a “good” or “bad” time to take your photos. 

The Session

the process —

We check in about two months before the wedding to start chatting about timeline specifics, special details, family formal shot lists, special traditions and anything else we should know about your big day.

Wedding Prep

the process —

It's finally here! The day the two of you say "I Do" and dance the night away surrounded by your family and friends. Just know we're excited to celebrate and capture your wedding day. It's going to be awesome.

The Big Day

the process —

You can expect your photos to be delivered via an online gallery within about three weeks of your wedding. At that time, we'll also send over details about preserving your images through prints and albums. 

They're Here!

the process —

Our story together starts when you send an inquiry form. From there, we'll plan a time to chat about your day and see if we'd work well together.

Shortly after, I'll send over your personal proposal that includes collections crafted based on your needs.

Next is where it all begins. After booking, I'll guide you through the process of planning your day to make sure all the details are lined up in a way that will allow for the best photography outcome.

“PHOTOGRAPHS THAT FEEL LIKE ART"

On your day, you can expect candid, fly on a wall, documentation of the moments that come naturally, mixed with simple direction when it comes time for portraits.

I'll arrive a few minutes early to get all set up and situated. For a typical full day timeline, the details and invitation suites will be photographed while everyone's getting ready, then I'll pop in for the final touches of hair and makeup, dress-lacing, and bow-tying. We'll head out for the first look (if you chose to have one!), get you two married at the ceremony, stick around for bridal and family portraits, and then take in all the joy at the reception. 

Your planner and I will be in contact throughout the day to make sure things run according to plan. And if things don't go exactly as planned, you'll have the peace of mind that you hired a photographer that isn't just adaptive, calming, and reassuring, but one that will also be there to hold your hand every step of the way.

Jillian was amazing from the very beginning... Not only were her response time wonderful leading up to the shoot, but she did amazing work with memorizing everyone's names and our team felt so comfortable around her... She really brought out their personalities through their portraits. Once I saw the final images, I literally had tears in my eyes.
