Words cannot describe how happy we are with our photos. I think you captured every special moment there was to capture and I can honestly say every picture you took was beautiful. I can’t even pick a favorite because they all are my favorite! Thanks so much for everything!

I’m Jill, the owner and lead photographer here at Lemonade Photography in Port Orchard, Wash., and I’m going to let you in on a little secret: There’s no reason your wedding photography should cost more than your dress, your catering or your first car. I believe everyone deserves quality photos of their wedding day at a reasonable price – and that’s why I launched Lemonade Photography in July of 2009.

I got my start in journalism as a writer and reporter for small newspapers – and when you work for a small paper, you’re often asked to pick up a camera and do your own photography. To my surprise, I discovered a talent I didn’t know I had. I left journalism for public relations a few years later, and became a writer and photographer for a local university. And when my PR job was reduced to half-time in an economic downturn, I decided to turn some pretty sour lemons into Lemonade Photography. I shoot weddings, events, portraits, families and kids, and my goal is to capture the moments of your life as they happen. If I had an invisibility cloak, I’d wear it to take pictures – because when people forget they’re being photographed, that’s when they look their best in front of the camera.

If you’ve visited a lot of photography websites, you’ve probably noticed one maddening trend: Most photographers won’t give you their prices up front. Not me. You’ll find my prices for portraits and group photos, as well as a few sample wedding photography packages, on my pricing page. Of course, every wedding is different, so if I don’t have a package that meets your needs, feel free to contact me to request a custom package. I’m happy to work with your budget to make sure you get memorable photos of your day.

In the meantime, check out my portfolio, read my blog and follow me on Facebook. Welcome to the Lemonade family.
