GIVE ME ALL THE REAL SMILES
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!

one of the best decisions we made for our wedding!
We hired Jillian for our elopement in November 2020, and it was probably one of the best decisions for our wedding!Sent on 12/12/2020
Jillian was truly amazing to work with! She was responsive prior to the event, showed up early to our venue and put over 100% effort into taking photos of us. Her fun, positive energy allowed us to relax and...we're a camera shy couple :) She truly brought out the best in us! At one point she showed us a preview and I got a teary eyed when I saw how beautiful the photos looked without editing. She is incredibly talented!
The photos she took were unbelievable. She sent us a handful of photos the NIGHT of our wedding!! Since we had a COVID wedding, we weren't able to have anyone outside of our immediate family at the event. Having the photos that night was such a highlight since we were able to share them with all our friends and family! We received so many compliments on our photographs.
Jillian recently sent the rest of our album, which was much earlier than we expected. The photos turned out so well & we are so excited to get them printed & gift them to our family!
She is fabulous! You won't regret it!

The single best decision you can make for your wedding
I could ramble for an eternity about how amazing and wonderful Jill is, but at the end of the day only one fact matters: Hiring Jill was the single best decision we made for our entire wedding. Having previously worked part time in the wedding industry in Maryland, I knew YEARS before I was even engaged that I needed Jill as my wedding photographer. Everything from her response time to attentiveness, communication, pre-event planning etc. all go above and beyond. Trust me when I say, she will be your one, stand-out, vendor you will not have to worry about. Her unique skill and shooting style jump out at you, even with just a quick skim of her gorgeous and glowy portfolio. It’s easy to see from her photos why she is the best of the best, BUT, what truly sets Jill apart are her personality and attitude. I cannot stress enough, how much this raises Jill above others in her field. I loathe, with every ounce of my being, being in front of a camera. It makes me so anxious I could throw up, and that anxiety does NOT translate well on film. This brought an unprecedented level of dread to the whole experience, that no dose of Xanax could remedy. Enter Jill: her presence has an utterly inexplicable way of putting you completely at ease. She gives helpful direction and guides you through shooting, without even realizing you’re being given instructions. She made the most anxiety inducing parts of my wedding day (and events leading up to it!) feel like my husband and I were non-stop laughing with a lifelong friend. Not to mention, we had an incredibly tight timeline for photos that involved complex logistics and multiple venue changes. She navigated the entire day with unmatched expertise- pivoting when needed, keeping me on time, and keeping my stress level at an absolute minimum. It was an insanely crazy and complicated few days, that she managed to make feel simultaneously effortless and a ton of fun for us. I still can’t believe she was able to rearrange her schedule to fly all the way to Italy to photograph our wedding events. She was without a doubt, the MVP of the entire experience and we are eternally grateful for all she has done for us. There are plenty of highly rated photographers in this industry- but if you want a truly five star expert, above and beyond, investment worthy experience on your wedding day- do yourself a favor, and hire Jill.Sent on 10/14/2020

Book now you will not regret
Book Jill!! You will absolutely not regret it!! It is clear that Jill's photography and skills are phenomenal, but in addition Jill has an ability to put couples at ease. From the moment I met Jill, she made me feel as though we have known each other FOREVER. This feeling of familiarity was so valuable and made my husband and I feel comfortable and even relaxed in front of the camera. At times, I didn't even notice Jill, which allowed me to really be in the moment, yet she was still able to capture intimate moments beautifully. When I was planning, I was told to find a photographer I "clicked" with, which I definitely found with Jill! Even better, Jill and her crew were able to "click" with our families and our bridal party, allowing everyone to be themselves and get the most natural wonderful photos! Also Jill is the ultimate hype girl and makes me feel like a rockstar!Sent on 04/21/2020

Thank you Jillian! We feel the same way about you! When you enter the Mansion you always greet us with such enthusiasm and cheerfulness. Your personality is so warm and happy, you put all of your couples right at ease. The art that you create with your camera is something that is truly special. Most of our photo books and images of weddings come from your work here with our couples. We love to recommend you. We are thankful for our relationship with you and look forward to welcoming you back again and again. Cheers!
As an officiant, I have literally worked with hundreds of photographers over the years. This winter, I decided I'm going to add a "Preferred Vendors" tab to my website, and it didn't take me long to decide I wanted Jillian to be apart of that list! Her friendliness, attention to detail, ability to manage a large group (in a FUN way!), and her overall eye for photography puts her in the top tier among her professional peers. If you're looking for not only dynamite photos but also someone who can help make your day the best it can be, stop your search- you just found your company- B.O.B. Photography is the way to go!
Love working with Jillian at B.O.B Photography! She's very fun, creative and a real pleasure to work with. I've seen her finished product and her pictures are stunning! So much so that my fiance and I hired her to shoot our Wedding!
