Emily and Brad’s wedding at High Hampton in Cashiers was truly beautiful. A few of my favorite things about this event…

1. Emiy’s bridesmaids wore dresses that were in the same color scheme, but all uniquely matched their personalities.
2. It rained throughout their rehearsal evening, then rained all day on the wedding day until 30 minutes before their ceremony. I’ve never seen the rain clear so fast.
3. Emily said I was her “spirit animal.” I’ve never had such a cool compliment in my life. Nothing better than forming a bond and feeling that I can document a persons true personality.
4. The moments after the ceremony when everyone was hugging the couple made me teary eyed. So much love among the family and friends of this couple!
5. I laughed so hard when the guest placed funny face cards over their mouths on the dance floor. So fun to photograph the fun.

Read all about my favorite things at Brittany and Dave’s fabulous wedding at the Conservatory at Biltmore Estate!

1. Brittany had two veils and opted for the one that was rose gold. It was not only beautiful, but it kept with what she truly wanted on her special day! She even had a special gem hair accessory commissioned by Stephanie and Lola Salon to boot!
2. Their wedding was held under a tent at the conservatory at Biltmore, but the sun came out when the couple kissed at the end of the ceremony. Perfect timing for us to get some sunset shots at the south terrace!
3. Their design included elements of chemistry and precious gems. The couple love both of these and it was a uniquely gorgeous combination.
4. They danced with flare!
5. He never stopped holding her hand and the moments between them flowed so naturally.

Real moments matter. This is how I shoot and document my clients, thinking of the real emotion involved with being engaged! I look forward to bringing some truly authentic imagery to their wedding at Diana at Biltmore in Spring of 2018.
Congrats to this awesome Ashley and Aaron! The best is yet to come.

    Thank you so much to Jill for capturing these amazing moments. We were very nervous and she made us feel so comfortable and was able to get amazing photos. Jill is so knowledgeable and found the perfect little spots on the Biltmore to take pictures, we are so excited for her to capture our wedding day!

    We can’t say thank you enough!

When it rains, I love to roll with it. Luckily, my clients were into it too. Looking forward to shooting their wedding at Biltmore in August!

We went to the North Carolina Arboretum for Emily’s bridal session. Her lace dress was stunning and I loved meeting/working with her before the wedding. I’m so glad she chose me to document her wedding at High Hampton.
Stay tuned for details of their love story.
