“Wow. [My fiancé] just gave you a great compliment, he said I looked relaxed, which is true. I am generally really self conscious and nervous in front of cameras but you are really easy going and disarming and that really shone through. I look forward to seeing the rest of the shots.” -A.R.
“She is very much an artist who possesses both the artist heart and soul.” -M.D.
“I have to admit seeing these photos brings to tears of joy to my eyes. I’m sending virtual hugs out to you!! You did a fabulous job. I am thrilled with the way they turned out and can’t wait to see them up on the walls of my house, on my desk at work, and at Grandma’s house, too!!!” -L.D.
“Thank you so much! I love them. I’m so impressed with what you were able to get out of us.” -L.N.
“You were super and went beyond the call. Always returned emails and phone calls… very, very professional and honest! They really need to clone you. I can’t thank you enough!” -B.N.
“OMG gorgeous. I don’t ever like photos of me and I absolutely love these. Thank you so much.”-A.R.
“I recommend Jillian as highly as I can. She truly captures the couple but most importantly, her kind, disarming personality makes it very easy to be in front of her lens, allowing the very best pictures to develop. Jillian was prompt with response to email & phone, communicated well, explaining everything. We talked about location ideas, clothing recommendations & some ideas of shots she was thinking of, even sending me some examples.
When the day came, it was frigid, & windy, but that didn’t hinder her. Our photo-shoot was at Glen Echo Park in Maryland, a bit of a drive. She didn’t hesitate about the travel, she even showed up more than 15 minutes early.
Jillian was friendly, approachable & easy to talk to, quickly putting us both at ease. She was great at directing shots, making suggestions of what to do but also being open to suggestions from us. She made the entire experience truly fun. We spent a lot of the photo shoot laughing. In fact, I forgot about all my hang-ups 15 minutes in.
I’m still amazed by what she captured in our photos. We both look so happy, so pretty/handsome, so full of personality and as a couple so connected, in love, playful and just so right. Which are the same compliments I’ve received about the photos from family and friends.
Jillian also made full use of the wonderful scenery at Glen Echo Park. She’s just talented at producing those intimate, creative shots filled with personality but backed up with the technical expertise needed to make good pictures truly amazing. Jillian posted a few spoiler pics about a week after our shoot, which considering it was Thanksgiving week, is amazing. A week after that she posted all of the final pics on the website for me to download. Talk about fast turnaround!
I am thankful beyond words to have discovered Jillian. She is going to be our photographer for our wedding and for life. After our engagement shoot, I can’t imagine trusting my wedding pictures to anyone else.” – A.R.
