Ryan & Katie | Iowa & Destination Wedding Photographer

Ryan & Katie’s wedding was on a beautiful day in Eldora Iowa at church camp where Katie spent her summers as a youth.  The day started out a little damp, but quickly the clouds parted and the sun started to shine! They were married at sunset on the lawn in a gazebo designed by her sister.   The entire day was amazing.  Thank you guys for letting me be a part of your day, it was truly beautiful!

Megan | Class of 2013 | Midwest Senior & Equine Photographer

I apologize for my long blogging absence! I’m finally starting to get caught up from a busy summer & fall so look forward to more posts in the near future!

I had such a blast photographing Megan and her horse “Leggs” at her stable outside of Omaha Nebraska. I’ve had the pleasure of watching Megan grow up and become such a lovely young woman and accomplished horse woman too! My family actually helped Megan get her first horse when she was younger and she’s been “horse crazy” ever since 🙂

M + T Engagement Session Sneak Peek | Des Moines Engagement Photographer

I had so much fun photographing Marie & Travis’s engagement session.  We finally had a beautiful evening here in Iowa that wasn’t 95+ degrees!  We started off downtown and then both Marie and Travis love disc golfing so we went to a local park with a disc golf course and did more photos.  As it turned out, it was the perfect spot!  We got some amazing sunset images towards the end as well!  I can’t wait for the wedding in a couple of weeks!

Enjoy!

My Mexican Adventure

I recently returned from two months in Mexico.   Last year I decided I was going “south” for the winter, I had had enough of Iowa Winters!

In October 2011, I got the nudge to put an ad in an online magazine called The Caretaker Gazette.
I stated in my ad that having grown up on a working cattle and horse ranch that I have extensive experience
with animals as well as being a photographer and that I was looking for someplace warm and/or picturesque
to spend some time this past winter.

The next morning after the ad went out, a couple contacted me, that are originally from New Hampshire, that have a campground in Mexico.  The gentleman just happened
to be a retired 20 veteran commercial photographer who said he would be willing to
mentor me in exchange for help with their horses, goats and help around their
campground.   All I had to do was purchase my plane ticket and once I got there, room
and board would be included as well.  This seemed like to good of opportunity to pass up

so I decided to go for it!

Mid January I flew into Puerto Vallarta to start my adventure.   Thankfully the couple was
at the airport to pick me us as I don’t speak Spanish and didn’t know what to expect.  We
headed south out of Puerto Vallarta for the two­hour pickup ride to their campground near
a small village called Mayto.   It was a little unnerving as we drove into the village to find
cow skulls hanging nearby.
The area where I stayed is called Cabo Corrientes on the Pacific Coast of Mexico in the
state of Jalisco.  The campground that I worked at is called Rancho Sol Y Mar 
While there I met some amazing people and was able to “liberate” some baby turtles
from the nearby Turtle Camp.

Of course I had a few cervezas (beer in Spanish) on the beach while enjoying some
amazing sunsets!

During my stay I was able to assist my host, the commercial photographer with a
commercial shoot for a local hotel.  It was really interesting to hear and see how he
worked his business for the hospitality industry.
Here is a photo that I took during the photoshoot:
The trip really was a leap of faith on my part and I’m so glad that I stepped out of my
comfort zone to take on this adventure!  It gave me a chance to recharge, relax and learn
about another area of photography.  I would encourage you to step out of your comfort
zone too the next time you get the chance!

Traveling Internationally on Assignment | Jill Fleming Photography

Thank you for visiting my blog!

I’m going to be M.I.A on the blog for a few weeks!  I am taking a leap of faith and traveling to Mexico to mentor and work with a commercial photographer there for a few weeks this winter.

I am still booking wedding and lifestyle portrait sessions for 2012, so dont’ hesitate to get in touch with me, although I’ll need some grace on response time as I’ll be in an area of Mexico that has limited internet connectivity so I’m unsure how often I’ll be able to check my email.  Also, the best way to contact me is through e-mail.  Please use jillflemingphotography@gmail to send any correspondence.

Adios!

Jill
