Hi there.

My photo
Jill Brown has over 15 years of experience in the field of photography. She has studied photography at Missouri State University and Maryville University, St. Louis. She spent time working on her personal fine art work for many years and in 2003 started her first wedding and portrait photography business in St. Louis, MO. Jill moved to Des Moines, IA in 2005 and has continued her wedding and portrait business along with her fine art photography. Jill currently has work displayed in and around the Des Moines area as well as work in personal collections around the world. Jill uses both medium format film cameras and digital formats to create her images. This is how the artist describes her work: “My work is a reflection of everyday life and places. I chose the medium of photography as a tool to capture the essence of the person or place. I create images to depict the subject as they are remembered in the mind. Not posed or unnatural, but as a window into the intimate world of the subject.” Jill Brown is a member of Professional Photographers of America.

Jessica + Mike = Hitched

Date:  April 24, 2010
Ceremony:  Assumption Catholic Church - O'Fallon, MO
Reception:  Bear Creek - Wentzville, MO


Jessica is my niece and she asked me about a half-a-dozen times to be the photographer at her wedding.  I was reluctant to shoot family weddings, but she was persistent and I said "Yes!"  :) I am glad I did.  


She was BeAuTiFuL!  Don't you think?  Maybe I am biased, but I think she was stunning!  Mike was very handsome in his tuxedo and shiny shoes.  The day started out over cast, but by the time the ceremony was over it was raining.  There were t-storm warnings and tornado warnings all about... it was reported that one even touched down not far from where we were!  I have to say that aside from ducking in and out of venues, we were oblivious to the weather.  


All and all it was a beautiful day... just lovely.  :)  
I know that Jessica and Mike are going to have a wonderful,long marriage to each other.


Welcome to the family, Mike!


Love you both - Aunt Jill.  ;)
