Then Heather Said, “Today is a J kind of day.”
Let’s talk photography.
If you were to ask who my favorite life-photographer is, I would give a list of five names.
Today is the day. The J kind of day. The day you learn about two of these lovely ladies; Jenna and Jill.
Jenna is someone I would label a “world famous blogger.” She used to run a blog titled That Girl. Then she fell in love, got engaged, and started a blog called That Bride. Then she joined the ranks of the ever popular WeddingBee and became Miss/Mrs. Avocado, sharing her wedding planning and details with all who were interested [a lot of her element posts ended up in my own wedding inspiration binder back when I was planning my own almost-wedding]. After the Wedding, she was That Wife. I’ve been reading her blogs for YEARS now- and I was super excited when she started her photography business, Jenna Cole. So excited, in fact, that I became her first paying costumer.
Jenna decided to pursue photography because she wanted to “spend my days taking pictures of people that helped them to see how beautiful they are.”
And then there was Jill. Jill is a Michigan photographer whose work I love more and more with each new blog post. Seriously. Without fail, every time she posts, I am in awe. I think it’s best said in her own words, taken from her website; “in all my work, I want to create images that tell your story, display your personality, and celebrate the beauty of being alive.”
Mission accomplished, Jill.

[previous 8 photos from Jill Devries]
I have a few Jenna Cole shots up in my apartment, but not nearly enough. And I've yet to hang a Jill Devries. I think one of my 2010 goals will be to add some shots to my walls by each of them [photos that i'm not in- maybe some detail shots they've each taken? i can picture a nice little collection on my kitchen wall of a few shots by my favorite photographers. something similiar to this] They both have such a great way of capturing light!! Don't you agree?
