The absolute BEST photographer!
Choosing Jillian as our wedding photographer was probably one of our best decisions in the whole wedding planning process! Jillian has such a fun energy and relaxed personality that made us feel immediately comfortable and truly captured us at our best! I cannot say enough great things about Jillian. Not only did her pictures turn out phenomenal, but we had such a fun time taking them all. Jillian is truly one of a kind!Sent on 03/24/2021

The BEST photographer you will ever work with
Where do I even start with Jillian. She was my favorite vendor we worked with. When we had to reschedule our wedding due to COVID, we knew we had to find a date where Jillian was available. She made everyone feel so comfortable and at ease and made the photos seem so fun and relaxed. She was extremely responsive and thoughtful during our reschedule. I have never been more anxious in my life than I was before our wedding ceremony and Jillian was the calm I needed. She was so much more than a photographer to me during that time, and I will never forget how patient and caring she was. She truly cares about the couples she shoots for and puts in her whole heart. I am so fortunate we found Jillian and were able to have her shoot the biggest day of our lives. And ofcourse, her pictures are absolutely stunning. You will not be disappointed if you chose Jillian for your big day! :)Sent on 09/07/2020

Jillian is the BEST photographer you could hire!
Jillian will hands down be the best vendor you hire for your wedding. My favorite thing about Jillian is that she can capture the big moments beautifully but she also captures moments that are very small that you might not think about but are simply amazing. I can sometimes be a bit awkward taking posed photos but Jillian make you feel comfortable and finds poses that make you look natural and beautiful. She is very quick to respond to all questions and concerns to put your mind at ease. Her day of timeline layout and knowledge of lighting for the best photos was amazing. Jillian is someone you can completely trust with your big day. I highly recommend you book Jillian for your wedding. If you don't you are missing out on the best photographer!Sent on 12/01/2020

The photographer you need!
Jillian is our photographer for our upcoming wedding and has recently captured our engagement photos. She is beyond amazing. She is flexible especially when we had to change our photo session due to weather. She is fun and laid back which makes you feel really comfortable while trying to take photos. She has awesome ideas and is always willing to listen to your wants. She captured so many great photos during our engagement session we had such a hard time trying to figure out our favorites! We are excited to have her capture our wedding day next November!Sent on 12/05/2018

Magical engagement session!!!
We just got our engagement photos back and my fiance and I couldn't have been more pleased! Jillian truly captured our personalities while making us look great at the same time. She really listened to what we were wanting, and I absolutely LOVE her editing style. Jillian is nothing but professional while still letting her own personality shine, which is why we loved working with her and can't wait for the wedding day!Sent on 12/16/2018

Awesome Engagement Photos
Jillian is absolutely the best!! We had our engagement photo session with Jillian last Sunday, 11/05/2018. It was super cold and very windy. I was so worried before we started, but the weather didn’t affect our pictures at all. Our pictures turned out to be beautiful! Jillian was very helpful when we were trying to pick the location. She definitely knows what she’s doing. The entire photoshoot went very smoothly and we were very comfortable with her pose suggestions. I am so glad we are also having Jillian to be our wedding photographer.Sent on 11/30/2018

If Jillian would have me as a personal spokesperson, I would totally do it.
I don't believe there are enough words of gratitude that I can extend to Jillian for making our day absolutely perfect. She is completely detail oriented, is open to a lot of crazy ideas, and was hands down the best investment of our big day! She is so friendly, professional, and extremely timely with her responses. Her editing and finished products are completed timeless. With over 9 hours of coverage, two photographers and two locations, we ended up with over 1,000 (Yes, ONE THOUSAND) stunning photos to look back on from our day. She captured every photo I wanted, a picture of almost all the guests, and not only beautiful photos of us inside the church and outdoors, but the candid shots/little moments are great! I wouldn't have changed anything about our day, especially hiring Jillian to photograph our once-in-a-lifetime day. Jillian, YOU ARE AMAZING AND I AM EXTREMELY THANKFUL FOR YOU AND YOUR GIFT OF CAPTURING OUR DAY PERFECTLY.Sent on 01/04/2019

Couldn't have asked for a better photographer
What really sets Jillian apart is that she doesn't just document the aesthetics of the day, but she also captures the feeling. We had a pretty long list of "shots" for our wedding day (and she nailed all of them!), but what was so unexpected and special are the photos of all of the small, special moments of the day, whether it was photos of the two of us together, sweet (and hilarious) moments between friends and family throughout the night, or some of the cutest photos of our flower girl ever! Whether it's posed shots, details, or candids, Jillian's photos are everything we could have asked for, plus more than I ever imagined. It felt like our wedding day flew by, but Jillian's photos bring everything back.Sent on 12/21/2018
Choosing a photographer was definitely something that we stressed over, and I don't think we could have found a better match. She was so wonderful throughout the entire planning process--whether it was a recommendation for a vendor or just a casual check-in email to see how things were going. We had major storms on the day of our wedding, and I was really worried about our schedule and missing some of the outdoor shots that we were hoping for, and Jillian was such a calming presence that day and kept things running smoothly. We lucked out and the skies cleared in time, and we were able to get some really incredible outdoor photos, but I have full confidence that our portraits would have still turned out beautifully if the rain didn't clear in time. All in all, I can't recommend Jillian enough--she was everything that I had hoped for in a photographer, and so much more.

Jillian has everything you want in a photographer! She was organized and professional, but also has such a great, fun personality. She is very knowledgeable in her craft and provided us with beautiful, diverse photos for both our engagements and wedding photos. She took the time to listen to what we wanted, kept us updated, and provided exactly what she promised. I will be forever grateful for her for capturing these memories for us!Sent on 09/22/2018

Jillian was our photographer for our wedding on 6/9/18 and she also did our engagement pictures last fall. She was truly awesome and her work is phenomenal. I don't like being in front of the camera but she made me feel comfortable and even better made me look good! Her editing is great and I feel like will be timeless. She was always quick to answer any question we had and was helpful when I was looking for other wedding vendors. I would recommend her ten times over.Sent on 07/17/2018

I adore Jillian and her work. Jillian is laid back and easy to talk to, which is a big deal when you're trusting someone to capture the most special day of your life! Her work is incomparable, such beautiful use of light. I wanted a photographer that captured the day exactly as I remembered it. Jillian was for sure the right choice- anyone who checks out her blog will see that. I endlessly appreciate her helping me build my day-of timeline because I had NO IDEA what I was doing. She spent a good two hours with me on that as well as hearing what exactly I envisioned for our big day. She was happy to incorporate my quirky little touches I wanted in my photography and I'm so happy knowing my wedding is captured in its entirety and won't look like "everyone else's wedding"! I wouldn't have anyone else on my big day!Sent on 05/04/2018
Candace · Married on 05/19/2018
Jillian is the BEST!! I know nothing about photography but I could tell when we first met, that she really knows her stuff. Not only with lighting and angels, but with wedding timelines and what works best in general! During our engagement session, she was super flexible on time and where we wanted to meet her but had a lot of suggestions if we were unsure. She showed up early to scope out all the good spots too. I loved how she directed us how to stand, where to turn our heads and look to make the pictures flow and help us look less posed. We are by no means models so really appreciated the guidance. We laughed the whole session and she moved us along quickly to get as many pictures and backgrounds in as possible. I thought it was cool how she knew she needed to continuously change her camera settings as the sun was setting. Her photos are pure and natural and not over-edited as well. Something I was looking for my wedding. She had all pictures back to us (a tons of them) within 48 hours!! I was overwhelmed with how she truly over-delivered her service and cannot wait for the wedding date!! :)Sent on 09/28/2017
Jillian Hogan Photography's reply:Thank you so much Candace! I had a great time with you both and can't wait for the wedding day!

11/10 recommend Jillian. Jillian was our photographer for our wedding at the Monroe Pearson in Denton (April 2018). There are not enough words in the dictionary to describe how wonderful a person Jillian is. We are so happy with our engagement, bridal and wedding suite! We receive so many comments from friends and family on her photos. She has a true photographers eye and catches all the little details that you work so hard to include in your big day.
Jillian was the first and only photographer we met with when starting our hunt for a photographer. We were so impressed with her, her work, her personality and calming demeanor that we didn't even consider looking elsewhere after our initial consultation. Jillian was personally recommended to us by a close family friend who also was recommended to her by her friend. In my book personal recommendations are the best ones!
If you're considering hiring Jillian for your wedding or family photography, do it!Sent on 06/13/2018

Absolutely loved working with Jillian! She was so accommodating to our schedules and made us feel like celebrities in front of the camera!

From engagements to boudoir to wedding pictures she does amazing work!Sent on 08/07/2017

Erin · Married on 06/10/2017
Working with Jillian was amazing from start to finish! When I first met with Jillian to talk about what I wanted from a photographer she was professional and thorough. She did our engagement and wedding photos and they turned out great! She is super sweet and made sure to get the shots that we wanted by helping us relax and laugh. She spent lots of time talking with me before the big day making sure we'd run through everything and her attention to detail was excellent. Family and friends remarked frequently that she was super pleasant and friendly during our wedding. We have many amazing images to help us remember and cherish from our special day! I highly recommend Jillian as a photographer to trust with capturing your special moments!Sent on 08/07/2017

Christen · Married on 12/22/2016
I LOVE Jillian and I LOVED working with her! We just clicked the moment we had our initial meeting. Jillian is professional but made our experience with her fun! We absolutely loved all of our wedding photos and I feel like her style is current yet timeless. I cannot wait to work with Jillian again on future family pictures. She was really responsive to all prior wedding day correspondences and we got our pictures really quickly after the wedding. I appreciated the fact that she provides a list of pictures that she typically takes at weddings which helped spur ideas of other pictures that we wanted taken. She is really accommodating of ideas and helps make sure that things go smoothly. Jillian is wonderful and I would recommend her to any bride!Sent on 08/07/2017

TL;DR: Jillian is the best. Personality and professionalism is A+. End products are gold.Sent on 08/08/2017
We planned our wedding from afar. After a few fails with photographers that wouldn't travel up to our venue I Googled “McKinney photographer” and tada, Jillian Hogan. She responded within 24 hours and we set up a video meeting. She made sure that our vision aligned with her style and that was that. The contract was simple and payment was easy (again, great for remote wedding planning). She continued to be responsive and gave us some great suggestions.
On W-Day she and the second shooter show up with smiles and were rock stars in the chaos of hair and makeup. We were just in a hotel room, but Jillian still made it look wonderful! We took first look and bridal party pics before the ceremony. The rest of the day was a blur, but Mom and MIL were happy with them. Before they left, they asked if there was any last minute picture I wanted. That willingness to check in was really sweet and thoughtful.
I had a sneak peek within two weeks. Soon after, we had access to all our pictures. The pictures capture exactly the way that I remember feeling that day. They make my heart happy.
We worked with 4 photographers: proposal, engagement, cultural wedding, and American wedding. We didn’t have a long list of must have photos in any of these situations. All were good, but Jillian was superb. She nailed our list of “must haves” and then her talent kicked in and everything was effortless with her.

Jillian is professional, artistic, and genuine. Along with an assistant photographer, Jillian photographed our wedding day beautifully.

Jillian Hogan Photography is AMAZING! She customized a package that worked for us & our smaller wedding. On top of being professional, she is fun to work with! She also does her homework on the venue, sunset times, traffic (we went to a 2nd site for extra photos), etc. No detail left untouched. I had a lot of questions and she answered each one with ease. The finished product is a timeless set of wedding photos that are flawless. We could not have made a better choice for our wedding day!Sent on 08/07/2017
