[I]t’s not often that I have the opportunity to capture a bridal session with hail, rain, fog, thunder and lightning all in the same shoot. This is exactly what happened for Mary’s session and we made the elements work for us. Mary was stunning and her parents were troopers. It’s exciting to have shoots like this one, keeping my job interesting and creative. I appreciated the fact that Mary wasn’t afraid to get her feet wet, both literally and figuratively.
Many thanks to Studio Wed team that helped with the details of this session. Beth with Studio Flora Diva for the beautiful cascading bouquet that looked exactly as the original on her wedding day. E. Scott Thompson with Make-up at the Grove Arcade did a flawless job on Mary’s make-up that even held up in the rain! Suraj provided an up-do that did not disappoint.

I was thrilled to receive this note written by the bride a few months after the session…
“Jill is a gem of a person who just so happens to also be a first class photographer. We selected Jill to photograph my bridal portraits and we’re so glad we did! She shot so many amazing photographs in tons of different angles and places within our location. She knew exactly where to take me and how to have me pose to capture the perfect portrait. In fact, she captured so many amazing images, it’s difficult to choose just one as my official portrait! On the day of my shoot it was raining, lightening and even hailed severely. The ground was wet and covered in ice and light to moderate rain continuously came down on us but nothing was going to stop her from getting through the shoot. Although, I had my concerns about getting out there on a rainy day, her bright attitude and smile encouraged me to stay positive as well. Jill took the weather with stride and used it to her advantage as she caught tons of photos with fog and neat lighting effects. I was ecstatic to be working with such a fun person and with someone who took charge of the shoot. Beisdes getting my hair, makeup and dress on, I did not have to stress over any other details of the portrait session. She not only took some of the best bridal photographs I’ve ever seen, she got the images uploaded to our online viewing gallery very quickly. Jill has also been extremely helpful after the session. She answers all of my questions and responds to calls, emails and texts expediently. It really feels as if she genuinely cares about my portraits a great deal and seems to go above and beyond to accomodate my requests. I absolutely can not wait to work with her again and I’ll try to come up with any excuse to do so :)! I highly recommend Jill of Realities Photography! Thank you Jill for creating the bridal portraits of my dreams! ”
