"For our wedding night and the venue we chose, having sunset photos was very important to us with the amazing view we had! We spoke with Jill leading up to our event and with all her experience with weddings, she had the brilliant idea of having us cut our cocktail hour short to help with the timeline of events and sunset photos! As a planner, I would say this is THE most important aspect you want to have in a photographer, as you do not want to worry about these details on your wedding day. Thank you so much for everything Jill, you are amazing at what you do!"
"If it wasn't for her, we would have NEVER been able to capture the most beautiful sunset on our wedding night."
"I went to meet with her in person to see some of her work and to chat and see if she’d be the right fit, and I was sold from the minute I met her! Jill was so easy to talk with and work with; she was warm and inviting, funny, and full of wonderful ideas for our photos. She made the photography portion of wedding planning an absolute breeze. I can’t gush enough about how absolutely beyond incredible the pictures were! They more than exceeded expectations, and everyone who saw them was so shocked and impressed at both how quickly they were put up and by how absolutely stunning they were. Jill was absolutely one of the best choices I made when planning my wedding, and I would highly recommend you give her a call!
"I absolutely LOVED working with Jill!"
"I had a very unique wedding ceremony where my husband and I jumped off a bridge for the ceremony. In order to get the perfect shot, Jill waded in a lake and probably ruined her shoes! And she did get the perfect shot! In addition to her amazing photography, Jill's professionalism and organization helped me plan my wedding and anticipate details I might otherwise have forgotten. I'm so luck to have had her as a photographer. Thanks Jill!"
"I'm so luckY to have had her as a photographer."
"Capturing our special day in order to look back and remember the details forever was very important to us. And we couldn’t have picked a better person for the job! Not only was she completely attentive to every situation, but she brought style and uniqueness to the shots. She knew when to be there to guide us, and also when to just take advantage of the natural order of things, a truly great mix. The result, our wedding album being a total success! Simply put.... a true artist in her work, and an extraordinary person to have around. We are ecstatic every time we look at our wedding photos and will never even consider anyone else in the future! Thanks Jill!
"Jill was absolutely remarkable!!"
"Photography for both of us was a big priority, and we wanted to make sure our special day was captured beautifully. Jill made sure of that! Our wedding was in a location she had never been to before (Harrington Farm), and because of her skill and experience, she gave us amazing photos that we both love! Both of our families loved her attentiveness to details and her making sure that everyone was doing okay throughout the evening. As a couple, my husband and I only met with one photographer, and we were confident that Jill would be perfect for our December wedding. My only regret is not having her for longer!
"Working with Jill was one of the best decisions my husband and I made!"
"She is extremely friendly, easy going and a pleasure to work with. Jill was very open to all of our ideas for pictures and really made sure she captured each and every one. She also made several suggestions for photo ops but was never pushy about her ideas and left it all up to us to make the final decision. Those were some of our favorite pictures!! Jill managed to capture so many beautiful candids. She snuck around so gracefully our guests barely knew she was there; we never got a complaint about our photographer being in the way. Our photos truly are breathtaking and so different and unique from all of our other friend's weddings. We now have these stunning pictures we are able to enjoy for years to come!!"
"Jill is AMAZING and incredibly talented at what she does!"
"If you're still not convinced by all the wonderful reviews you've read so far, please allow me to reinforce the idea once more--- JILL IS AMAZING!!! She braved through weird weather for both our engagement session (20F in February) and our wedding (rainy day and an outdoor wedding), but the pictures still looked like movie posters. Jill was able to capture beautiful moments when you're least expecting-- the kind of moments when you look at the pictures you'd gasp "wow, I didn't know this happened. So beautiful!" Jill also knows all the angles to get the best shots out of the surroundings. Jill's instructions made us look so natural and "in the moment", and we really loved our pictures."
"Dear brides-to-be: work with Jill! You will not regret it"
"The MOST IMPORTANT vendor I knew I needed for my wedding was a photographer. After almost two months of research, I stumbled upon Jill Markley, and after visiting her website for only 5 minutes, my husband and I knew we had found our photographer. We had some special requests for goofy photos, and she got EVERYONE excited when they at first seemed reluctant. She took the most amazing sunset photos that I have ever seen, and made sure that my husband and I were just enjoying our time together, as she captured the most tender, precious, and romantic moments. She is present with such knowledge and passion, and still turns ninja to get some of the best shots!
"She is so passionate about her work, and everything she does is stunning!"
"I knew the moment I spoke with Jill that there was no need to search any longer for a photographer. You can tell she loves what she does when she's up at midnight that same evening editing your photos and sending you the most beautiful sneek peeks ever. Even my now husband was blown away, and he's very unemotional about this sort of this. We used one of our engagement photos for our formal invitations and so many of our guests commented on how gorgeous the pictures were! Then came the wedding! Jill was amazing and so easy to work with on the big day...in fact most of the time we didn't even know she was there but her pictures told the complete story of our wedding!"
"She was easy to talk to and her style of photography was EXACTLY what we wanted"
