In addition to being your wedding photographer, I consider myself to be your professional hype girl, timeline guru, hair-tie bandit, furniture mover, dress fluffer, bowtie straightener and one incredibly skilled veil tosser! I will greet you with a hug on your wedding day, discreetly shed some tears during your father-daughter dance and if the mood is right, make some hip-hop requests to help keep the party going at your reception! If you are looking for someone that can deliver a wedding gallery that will WOW, be professional when you really need it yet knows how to have a great time, look no further because you’ve found me!
Hey there! You are probably in the beginning stages of planning your dream wedding! Congratulations, that is so exciting and I know at times it can feel a bit overwhelming. After finding a venue and hiring a wedding planner, photography is one of your biggest priorities.You are not just looking for a wedding photographer that can take amazing photos but someone you can rely on, laugh with and are happy to have as your third wheel on one of the most magical days of your life!
Hey there! So you are scrolling through my site and thinking about reaching out! Let me help give you a bit of an idea of how this whole process will go. As a wedding photographer of over ten years, I love to use my industry experience to help couples navigate through this exciting time! My goal is not only to deliver galleries that wow you, but to also provide an experience that is just as memorable as the photos! I love serving as a resource for all sorts of things whether it’s about what you should wear to your engagement session or helping you to decide if you should have a first look. So let’s get started!
Reach out by email or phone and let’s chat! I want to hear all about your wedding day vision, learn about how the proposal went down and find out what makes you unique as a couple. We will also discuss details on what collection may serve you best, run through a typical wedding day and then it’s on to booking!
I like to make this as easy as possible for you. Everything is digital and there are three simple steps. When you are ready to book, I will email over a link to your client portal which will walk you through the steps of choosing your collection, authorizing your agreement and taking care of your retainer. After all of this is completed, then we can get to the fun stuff!
Engagements are my favorite! They are meant to be fun, relaxing and are a great way for us to work together before the big day. So much of the guided posing that I offer is very similar to what we will do on your wedding day during portraits, so this will help give you an idea of what to expect. I love to travel so if you are considering a destination engagement, let’s discuss it! We will chat about location ideas, outfits, a bad weather game plan and set a date. After your session, you should expect to see a gallery link in your inbox within 1-2 weeks.
About two months before your wedding, I will send over a wedding photography questionnaire that asks ALL the questions. I love surprises but not on wedding day :) If you have a planner, we will touch base to make sure we are on the same page. The questionnaire will help me gather details about the two of you, names of your family and bridal party, vendor information and so much more. Based on these answers, I will design a photo timeline that best fits the flow of your day and put together a cohesive family formals list.
Once your alterations are complete, we will schedule your bridal session. Yay!! Typically this doesn’t happen until 4-6 weeks before the wedding day. Your venue is always a great location but the freedom you have with bridals can make it so much fun! Thinking of using a state park, studio or even another venue, go for it! Don’t forget to order a bridal bouquet and if you haven’t already used your hair and makeup trial, bridals are the perfect time to do so. This will probably be the first time you see everything come together and it is such a memorable experience. So spin around in that dress and let’s have fun!
It’s finally here! Embrace all the feels, enjoy the moment and soak it all in!! I got you. After the last few months, you totally deserve it. Now let’s celebrate you two!
Get excited because it’s delivery day! Yay!! Within a few weeks, you will receive a link to your full wedding gallery. So pop open that bottle, make a date of it on the couch and relive so much of your special day!
After you go through the gallery a few times, I’ll have you send over your top 30-40 favorites. I will create a custom album design and send it back to you for review. I’ll make adjustments as needed and we will discuss the types of covers, colors, embossing, etc. All galleries feature an option for printing and for any included in your collection, it’s as easy as sending over the number.
Local Wedding Collections begin at $4495 and include up to eight hours of wedding day coverage, two photographers and an engagement session. For additional collection options or destination weddings, please reach out through the contact page or email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
Although I am Texas-based, I am ALWAYS up for travel! As someone who was married myself in Mexico, I’m a huge fan of intimate, destination weddings! My passport is always ready to go and I happily offer custom wedding collections that already include travel. A few of my dream destinations include but are not limited to Colorado, Hawaii, Mexico and Italy!
If you want people to ask you 5 million times who did your pictures and give you all the compliments of how amazing they turned out, Jillian is the photographer you need. She ensures that every little detail is perfect from fixing a tiny little piece of hair to making sure your engagement ring isn’t twisted and facing the wrong way. That’s 1000% what you want in a photographer. As an added bonus, Blink 182 is her fave so that alone is a reason why you have to have her in your life. I promise, you won’t regret it.
Jillian made us feel extremely comfortable in front of the camera and brought light and laughter to our shoots. She was a boss when it came to making sure she captured exactly the shots we wanted; and she was calm, cool, and collected when it came to herding guests, navigating crummy weather, and staying on track with our timeline even when I ran late getting ready. Looking back at our wedding galleries, we're amazed at how Jillian captured every moment we experienced and every emotion we felt into a collection of still images. We couldn't have imagined, much less found, a more talented, trusted, and incredible photographer.
Jillian was my FAVORITE vendor of our entire wedding. I knew the minute I saw samples of her work that she would be a great fit for my vision and dreams for my wedding, but working with her sweet spirit far surpassed even my highest expectations! She is kind, easy going and such a pleasure to work with both on the planning side and also during the execution of engagement photos, bridals, and the wedding! Her work is top of the line, so bright, airy and beautiful! If you are looking for a great photographer anywhere in Texas, she is your girl and SO worth it! ... I am so thankful for Jillian and the magic she made through our photos!
If I could describe my photography in three words it would be vibrant, timeless and fun! I love capturing bold colors that look true to life, focusing on raw emotion and the little moments that make your wedding day so special but most of all, we will have a great time! I love to get you moving to help things unfold very naturally and will guide you along the way. When you are killin’ it, I’ll be your biggest cheerleader and when I get THE shot, we will be peeking at the back of my camera together!
I am located in Boerne, Texas and photograph weddings throughout Hill Country, San Antonio, New Braunfels, Austin and surrounding areas. I previously lived in Dallas Fort Worth for almost eight years and like to take on a handful of weddings each year there as well.
The booking process is all digital and very easy! When you are ready to book, I will send you a quote, agreement and invoice all together and within your client portal. Once all three are completed, your date will be secured and we can get to the fun stuff like scheduling your engagement session!
After I cull down your gallery, I apply a custom lightroom preset to all of your photos. I color correct, adjust contrast, straighten and sharpen all images. Galleries will have a similar editing style to what you see on my site and social media.
Yes, I absolutely love photographing intimate elopements, maternity, lifestyle newborn sessions, studio portraits, seniors and families. I also typically offer mini sessions once a year in the fall.
