The Ritz Carlton in Scottsdale is just a stone’s throw from the home I grew up in. Arizona, with it’s hotter than hot climate, is still a place that I LOVE to be! So any time I get a chance to photograph a wedding there, it puts a giant smile on my face! Basima and Asif’s wedding was simply gorgeous – the Pakistani women have incredible style! Take a peak into their event….
When I first spoke with Marcy about photographing the wedding at The Boathouse she said “…you’re going to love my daughter, Jenna! …she’s sweet and cute and bubbly and full of energy – and she looks a little bit like Lauren Conrad…” First I thought, sounds like a win/win situation for me. And then I thought….don’t all mom’s say sweet things like that about their daughters??? Well, when I finally got to meet Jenna in person I realized this was not false advertising. Not only is Jenna sweet and cute and bubbly, but she’s probably one of THE sweetest, THE cutest and THE bubbliest people I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting! I immediately fell in love when she started talking fashion…this is the girl who enlightened me on the subject of arm parties and the Man Repeller. I taught her about the ‘BOOTY TOOCH’ (thanks Tyra). And the conversation just spun off from there. What I kept thinking is, how lucky these two beautiful people are to have found each other! I’m especially lucky to be the one who gets to photograph it!
Thank you for checking out my new brand and website! It has been a real labor of love for me this past year and I’m so excited you’ve dropped by to see the finished product. There are a few things I’d love for you to look at while you’re here:
1. The Home Page. It’s interactive! When I was in 7th grade, I got my first subscription to Vogue Magazine. Not long after that, my first inspiration board was born…it filled an entire wall of my bedroom! Through the years, as I’ve moved around from city to city, the board has always completed my space. It changes along with me from season to season and keeps my mood fresh. It only seems fitting that my trusty inspiration board would become the soul inspiration for this website. My hope is to inspire you in some way too! (=
2. The Manifesto. Get to know me and what I care about through a list of my favorite quotes and anecdotes.
3. The “Working With Me Page.” I have been so lucky to work with incredible clients over the years. I compiled a checklist of things that, not only make them amazing, but have also created a space for me to do my best work.
4. My Insta-Life is a live feed to the pictures I post daily on Instagram. Come join in my travels! It’s continuously being updated, so you’ll always see a new picture on the homepage.
Again, thank you so much for stopping by and taking a look around. I can’t wait to hear more from you in the future. And please, come back soon and often! xo Jill
