I was born and raised in Tampa, FL (still living here and loving it) and I’m 100% Filipino! My love for photography started between the age of 10 and 13 (thanks to my dad and grandpa) and has been my favorite ever since.

Hiya! My name is Jill Collins.

My HEART is to capture the love you share through photos. I am so grateful to be trusted with something I am truly passionate about. I could not even dream up of doing anything better than photo!

I LOVE JESUS. He is the reason I live the way I live and view life the way I do. I live to know and love God more and to serve and love people as much as possible. I am truly a people person who desires connection, community, fellowship, truth, and intimate relationships. I love meeting new people and finding beauty in how different and unique each of us are. I also love traveling around the world, experiencing new cultures, camera in hand- learning about others, myself, life, and taking in all the feels of God's creation.

A little more about me

My Loves

I have the best husband in the entire world, Jake! Jake and I met in middle school when we were 12. We didn’t date until later on (college years) and have been married since January 14, 2017. We were actually best friends for an entire year before we started to have feelings for each other. He is absolutely hilarious (he can make me laugh at any time) and even more extroverted than me, which I never thought was even possible. He is my number one supporter, teammate, encourager, and best friend. I could NOT do things that I do and love the way I love without him by my side. I am truly thankful to God for Jake and the life He has given us to serve and glorify His name. We also have the sweetest baby girl that I get to hang with every day, named Juniper!

language barrier didn’t pose a challenge - we had a destination wedding in another country). Jill provided so much calmness & kindness as she gently guided us through different shots though out the day. Her calming & positive presence made me feel so comfortable. I think that our wedding day pictures came out so wonderfully because Jill created an environment where my husband & I felt comfortable being ourselves, posing, and having fun. Jill’s passion to her craft shines through in every aspect - from how helpful she is in before the wedding, to her presence the day of, to the quality of the photographs. So thankful to have the memories of the wedding captured by such a wonderful photographer.


Having Jill as our wedding day photographer made our special day that much more special. Jill & I met before the big day to discuss the schedule & priority shots. She provided great guidance & helped me stay organized & focused. The day of the wedding, she was keenly aware of the day’s schedule, the priority shots we wanted, and worked so well with all the other vendors (so well that the

working with Jill is not only does she offer her expertise with poses, location, wardrobe attire, time of day, etc., she will still ask us the vision WE want & will fit that in the session. At our wedding, our entire family LOVED working with Jill. I feel so confident that each gallery we get will be the most amazing. Jill’s work is 1000% worth every penny. She really does make memories last a lifetime with the photos she takes. I recommend her to everyone. 

Jill is hands down one of the best photographers I’ve ever worked with. We have done a couple sessions with her. My fiance managed to plan to have Jill on the day of our proposal & an engagement shoot after (this was amazing & I had no idea she was there) & she also did our wedding photography. Before, during, & after each session Jill is extremely responsive & I SO appreciate her attention to detail. The best part about

her ability to position us during photos. She knows what angles most flatter you & what poses work best for the images you are trying to capture. Her direction is specific and firm, which is a plus when working with a large wedding party or taking family photos. We are beyond pleased with how our photos turned out from our engagement session & wedding. The lighting she captures is beautiful, her editing is polished, & the variety of photos received is broad. Choosing Jill as your photographer is a no-brainer!

Wow, our experience with Jill was nothing short of incredible! She was very involved in the planning process, working with us to find the perfect photo locations by providing her recommendations as well as taking into consideration our own desires. One of Jill’s biggest strengths as a photographer is
