Your Vacation Photographer in Edinburgh: Meet Jilli

Meet Jilli

 

My style is story-telling, romantic, natural & candid. I predominantly work with natural light & believe that the best photographs are those taken when you're genuinely interacting with those you love - so I always aim to keep things simple and fun. I have been a wedding & lifestyle photographer for more than 8 years. In that time, I have been featured in some of the industry's leading mags & blogs, including the acclaimed "We Fell In Love." Along the way, I've picked up the title of Featured Wedding Photographer of the Year for both 2013 & 2014 by the glossy award-winning Scottish Field Magazine.

Three Things

  1. If I haven't got my dancing shoes on, or a camera in hand, you'll likely catch me with a good book or pencils and paints.
  2. My middle name is Cherry. I'm named after my lovely Gran & use my name in my business title in honour of her. She was a very wise & loving person and still inspires me to this day.
  3. My friends tell me I'm particularly ace at cheering people up. It's lovely to know I can bring a smile to someone's face when they need it.

Favourite Place to Shoot in Edinburgh
I love Edinburgh as it's a super diverse city to shoot in, but my favourite areas have got to be the quaint little streets of New Town & the West End - near the city centre, where you will find bijou streets with beautiful old shop fronts & cobbled roads.

Customer Love for Jilli

"Jill was wonderful to work with! She selected a central spot to meet us and was waiting enthusiastically when we arrived. She helped break the ice with some playful shots and told us all about the history of the scenery around us. She captured the playfulness and joy my mom and I share. Above all, she captured our love with some very memorable pictures I look forward to sharing with my daughters." - Elizabeth

'"We feel very  happy to be with Jilli for the shoot, and really like all the photos." - Helen

"Our shoot was great fun and Jilli was fantastic! Her photos turned out amazing! We enjoyed spending our time with her, walking around the City of Edinburgh and sharing stories from our lives! Finding a street off the beaten path with two pubs that we later explored was an added bonus! We definitely stepped out of our comfort zone with this photo shoot and it was so worth it! We now have beautiful memories and photos to cherish of our 35th wedding anniversary trip!" - Colleen & Jim

"Jill was amazing and made us feel at ease and natural. I cant wait to book again on my next adventure!" - Katya

"We were very impressed by Jilli's down-to-earth personality. She made us feel immediately at ease with the shoot-since this was the first shoot on our honeymoon trip. She met us on time and took some time to tell us about herself and ask what types of pictures we wanted. She loved that we hammed it up every so often and 'went with flow' of our personalities. Kyle and I were both sad that our session had ended-that was how much fun we had with her. We would definitely recommend Jilli to others looking for a flytographer in Edinburgh!" - Sarah & Kyle
