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.
Sherry emailed me last week and asked if I'd do a really quick portrait session for her. She just needed a couple of photos. I was so excited! I had taken a portrait session of Sherry and her pup, Linc, last fall and couldn't wait to see them both!
Ceremony & Reception: Greek Orthodox Church of St. George
Marie and Jack are a really fun couple! For example... there was a "No Loitering" sign and these two decided to take photos of them "hopping the fence" and play like they were loiterers! Ha! Then they wanted to sit in front of the church and pretend they were waiting for a bus. OMg. It was so much fun. I really hope I get the opportunity to photograph these two again!
Congratulation Marie and Jack! Thanks for a really fun day!
