Jill Tiongco Photography | Chicago Wedding Photographer Review
“Jill did such a wonderful job capturing our wedding/engagement and we felt so lucky to book her as our photographer. Jill is so sweet and fun to work with. Not only did it feel natural, but we laughed so much that we forgot we were being photographed. I was amazed at her ability to find the perfect spot and perfect light to make our pictures stand out! For our wedding day pictures, we went to a forest preserve and I had no idea where we would shoot there. Jill found the perfect spot with beautiful greenery, abundant trees, open space and a spot where the light shined perfectly through the trees. We loved our wedding pictures and months later, friends and family are still complimenting our beautiful photos and asking us how we found Jill. We are so lucky to have such wonderful pictures that captured our day perfectly that we will cherish forever.”

“Choosing Jill as my wedding photographer has been one of the best decisions I’ve made (and my wedding hasn’t even happened yet). After spending days looking over different photographers, I had Jill’s name suggested to me. Immediately after looking over her website I was emailing her to meet, and then immediately after meeting I was ready to book. Jill’s work goes beyond just taking pictures; I truly felt she wanted to get to know me and my fiancé and capture the best pictures possible for US. Taking our engagement pictures has been one of my favorite memories of being engaged thus far, and when I look back on this time I see us laughing with not only each other but Jill as well. I feel a sense of ease knowing that I will have her at the wedding. She has already been there for us as more than just a photographer, and I look forward to getting to spend our day with her!”

“Tommy and I had pegged Jill as our photographer long before we had even got engaged. We have been following her work for a couple years and I, personally, could not wait to ask her to be our wedding photographer! I had so much fun during our engagement shoot. I was a little nervous at first but Jill helped me to relax by cracking a few jokes & it made for some beautiful, candid pictures! I am beyond excited for her to shoot our wedding. I know that she will far exceed our expectations!”

“My husband and I were looking for a photographer to take photos of us while on vacation in Chicago. I fell in love with Jill’s photography immediately! She was exactly what we were looking for to capture our memories. She made us feel extremely comfortable in front of the camera and really captured us beautifully. Not only did we get beautiful photos, we got to meet and spend time with a wonderful and beautiful person as well! I’ve had a couple of engagement shoots and other vacation photos taken, but Jill’s photos are definitely some of my favorite. This is how much we love her… We asked Jill to come along with us to New York this upcoming April to take vacation photos for us! We love you Jill! See you in April!”

“We knew that our engagement and wedding photographs were something that was very important to us and it was not something we were going to settle with. We were excited from day one to work with Jill. I’d secretly read her blog, dreaming of our wedding day and waiting for Joe to ask to marry me. She truly loves what she does and it shows in her photographs. We were both so nervous for our engagement session but her fun and calming approach made the afternoon perfect. She was extremely helpful during the wedding planning process and her attention to detail made our wedding day flawless. She was able to work with the different personalities of our bridal party and vendors and made our job as the bride and groom so easy. Each time we look at our pictures it flashes us right back to that moment. We will have that for a lifetime, and we are so thankful for what Jill has given us.”

Jill Tiongco Photography | Engagement Photos Review
“Jill is by far the best photographer we know! She captured every precious, fun, heart-felt, and candid moment. When we met with her and discussed what we wanted she created a plan and timeline on how to execute it. She nailed it. Our family and friends loved working with her and even were impressed by how professional but kind and personable she was throughout the day. Anyone that’s been part of a wedding can tell you how hectic the day can get and unexpected surprises can creep up. But throughout the process Jill remained flexible and patient with not only us but also our bridal party and family. After the wedding we slightly regretted not having a videographer and thought we might have lost out on special moments. But when Jill sent us the wedding photos we were blown away. We immediately felt better about not having video. The photos captured EVERYTHING and even things we did not notice. We highly recommend her for your special day…”

“The first time Ryan and I met Jill Tiongco we literally felt like we had known her our whole lives. She has such a welcoming personality that it’s impossible not to love her! When we had our engagement session with Jill, Ryan and I felt like a buddy was taking pictures which helped us relax and bring out our true personalities. That is not the expensive camera, that’s Jill’s incredible talent!!! There were some moments we didn’t even know Jill was there shooting! She is a true gem, we are lucky to have her for our wedding!”

Jill Tiongco Photography | Montana Engagement Photos Review
“I could not imagine getting our engagement pictures with anyone else. I really never thought we would get engagement photos because I was worried about them looking staged or feeling awkward. It was quite the opposite and such a great experience taking these with Jill. Not only is she professional and “knows her stuff”, she is also relaxed and friendly, the perfect combo to make us feel comfortable. We could not be more thrilled with the final results. She produced timeless pictures we will treasure forever. Jill is truly one of the best in the biz.”

Jill Tiongco Photography | Montana Photos Review
“We were lucky enough to have Jill capture our engagement picture while on vacation in Big Sky, Montana. Leading up to the shoot Jill was so quick to respond to all of our emails with planning and outfit ideas. On the day of our shoot we were nervous and didn’t really know what to expect. Jill made us feel so comfortable and had the the best ideas for us to try which turned out amazing and so different than your typical engagement photos. Jill sent us the pictures very quickly and even featured us on her blog – so fun! #bestphotographerever”

“Jill did a fantastic, fantastic job overall! We couldn’t be happier with the whole experience meeting Jill and working with her. Not only is she an incredibly talented photographer with awesome style, but it was honestly just a pleasure meeting her! We love seeing her new blog postings too…”

Jill Tiongco Photography | Engagement Photos Review
“Her work can speak for itself. She has a fabulous editorial style that captures more than the traditional compilations you might be used to. She has an eye for architecture and landscapes so the perspectives in her photos are interesting and beautiful. She was great at capturing the details some might skip over: flowers, rings, venue, food. After all of the work that goes into planning a wedding, it is nice to have a record of those things. She is very easy to work with and is good at giving the right amount of direction… you can trust she will capture the candid moments which really make a wedding special. On that note, Jill is very stealth and can be “in a moment” without being overtly directional/obvious like other photographers I’ve seen. We had a lot of fun working with Jill and would certainly recommend her to anyone. Everyone I’ve heard from thinks our wedding photos are simply stunning.”

“PJ and I were nervous going into the engagement session because we really didn’t know what to expect. We aren’t really the lovey-dovey couple, so we were nervous thinking about how the pictures would turn out. Well, Jill made the experience one for the books! Knowing Jill was there laughing along with our awkward poses, made us feel comfortable; and the best part, the pictures turned out amazing!! We couldn’t have asked for anything better. Jill is a great photographer that makes you feel comfortable in the most awkward situations and has fun with you while doing it. If you want a photographer that feels more like a friend than a business, Jill is your girl! We can’t thank her enough and we can’t wait for our September wedding :)”

“From the first time we met Jill, we knew she would be a great fit! Jill is easy to work with, professional, and her photos are AMAZING! Jill was quick to respond to my emails, followed up throughout the whole decision process, and made us feel so comfortable during our e-session. We honestly ended up having so much fun and have received numerous compliments about our pictures! I also love that Jill uses social media as it makes it easy to relate to her and makes it all the more personable! We couldn’t be happier with our choice and we are looking forward to having Jill capture our special day, as we know she will capture it perfectly!”

“We had Jill do our engagement photos last February 2013 and I kid you not, to this day people still rave about them! She is so hands on and makes you feel so comfortable.

Jill Tiongco Photography | Engagement Photos Review
“From the first time we met with Jill, she was easy to chat with and it was clear she had a fun and bubbly personality, yet is incredibly professional and passionate about her practice. Our engagement shoot was freezing, yet Jill made the day fun and special for us, and helped us try to forget how cold it was! Jill made us feel comfortable and worked with us to take the pictures. The end result were gorgeous photographs that took our breath away. These were truly the best pictures we have ever taken. The framing and lighting of our pictures makes them light years apart from other engagement sessions we have seen. Our friends and family were just as obsessed as we are (and loved the blog post as well!) One friend even gasped and said ‘They look like they are out of a magazine!’ Working with Jill is the best decision we have made so far!”
