Hello & Welcome,

    My name is Jill. I am a mother, a wife, a daughter, a sister, a friend, and a full time professional photographer. For as long as I can remember I have had a camera in my hands, which is no surpirse that while growing up I immersed myself in all aspects of photography. I started as an apprentice to a professional wedding photographer when I was 13 and continued with him till I was 17. During this time I also managed a photography lab, and taught dark room basics at my high school. I have experience in many aspects and different types of photography, and I love it all. I started my own company simply called “Jill Lobley Photography” in 2006 after moving to Vancouver from my home town of Victoria. I say to myself everyday that I am completely blessed to be able to make a career out of one of my greatest passions in life, my photography. I shoot from the heart.

 Through the lens, I see tenderness, romance and humour. But I also look for the ordinary moments that are authentic, compelling, and emotional. As a result, I create photographs that are intimate, genuine and at times, funny and silly. If I had to put words to my style, it would be documentary wedding photography mixed with fine art. “Documentary” means I will be documenting your day as it unfolds, unobtrusively, with a simple & relaxed approach. “Fine art” means documenting those moments in an artful way, and creating portraits that beautifully capture your love and connections in a natural way.

Weddings are magical. They’re also hilarious, stressful, and chaotic. My passion is to capture these real moments, big and small, genuine and heartfelt. Those moments form the beautiful and personal story of your wedding day. I hope when you look back at your photos, you will not only be brought back to the moments of that joyful day, but also be reminded of how it felt, both for you and for those who were present that day.

The people I meet, and the stories I get to tell. That’s what it’s all about for me, and I would be honoured to tell yours.

I’m based in Surrey,BC, Canada but I love to travel! Destination weddings are welcomed.
