We absolutely LOVED Jill! The one thing I really wanted from my wedding was a great set of pics to remember that special day. What we got was more than we ever could have asked for. The pics were stunning! And on top of her amazing talent, her personality is off the charts - so friendly, funny, and a pleasure to be around. I cannot wait to have another reason to hire her:)

Fabulous photographer - everything you want in a photographer! Engagement photos, wedding photo's - Jill is simply the best there is in the Baltimore/Washington area. Jill Gately looks through her camera lens and captures the moment and tells a story with every picture. Jill takes the time to get to know the bride and groom and what they envision of their special day. Pictures are vivid and breathtaking and Jill is creative and her lens is able to capture the bride, groom, wedding party, friends and family at their very best. Every picture was incredible and delivers a lifetime of memories in a picture perfect way. I simply cannot say enough about Jill Gately Photography - she's simply the best. L. Berger

I first viewed Jill's work when she photographed a friends wedding. I could not believe how she brought to life the happiness of their day together. When we finally picked our own wedding date (3 weeks prior to the wedding) I told my husband- "unless Jill is available, we are not going to set this date in stone!" Fortunately for us- she was! We had a small ceremony with just us and our kids and Jill spent a few hours with us all taking pictures and riding in the limo around town. She was wonderful and the kids had such a great time with her. Our pictures are amazing and we get compliments on them all the time. Jill is the one person you HAVE to have at your special event. The cost is more than reasonable and the pictures we will enjoy for a lifetime. We cant wait to invite her to our next event. She truely makes each person look like a movie star! Thank you Jill!

Jill was amazing. Her pictures told a story and were not your typical wedding photos. The families were very comfortable with Jill which I felt was reflected in the photos. I felt like a I had a family member taking photos not someone who I had only met once before!

Hiring Jill was one of the best decisions I made for my wedding. We had a very small (12 people total) wedding, so it was important to me that I not only book an amazing photographer, but that they fit in well personality wise since it was such an intimate affair. Jill is a riot, and even though she isn't a part of our family, you never would have known; it felt like she totally belonged with us. I was looking for someone who would artfully composed photos, and that their style was more photojournalistic instead of the more traditional approach. I usually hate having my picture taken, but she made it so easy. My pictures turned out amazing and totally capture that day from start until finish, and my husband and I couldn't be happier with the results. I would recommend Jill in a heartbeat. When we have kids, she'll be getting a call from us! - Amy and Andrew Gaylin

I'm sure anyone reading this and seeing the rates above can't believe that there is a photographer out there with 5 stars for each category. But I tell you, there is, and that photographer is Jill Gately. Jill is who you want as your wedding photographer. She is affordable, flexible, and will give you the most beautiful photos. Everyone who sees our photos is jealous. When I first spoke with Jill, she made me feel comfortable. We paid for a lot of our wedding ourselves, and the price she quoted was the best. Not too low to question her talent, but not too high to put us in debt. Jill was pregnant during our wedding, and she rallied like no one's business. She was at the salon at 10 AM and was with us the ENTIRE day, until 10 PM. She also did an engagement photo session a few weeks before, which was perfect so we could get comfortable with her style and direction. If you are looking for photojournalism for an affordable price with a fun woman, then hire Jill. You will NOT be disappointed.

I have said it a million times since the wedding... I will say it again, our photographer was the best decision we made.

Jill is fun, easy to be around and full of spunk.

I knew after meeting Jill that I would not only be comfortable having her be my shadow for the day... but I would enjoy having her there. She was the first and most important decision we made in our wedding wedding planning.

After booking her as our photographer, my husband deployed to Iraq for 7 months. It was a lonely time, and making decisions without him was often difficult. Jill had taken the time to get to know Jake and I before we chose her as our photographer and knew our situation. She sent e-mails frequently checking up on me. When I found out that the Chapel had double booked our wedding, which meant we had an 11:00 ceremony and 4:30 reception. Jill wasn't upset that it would be a very long day, she was excited b/c there would be more time for pictures. The day ended up being 14 hours from the Salon to the end of the reception and Jill was there every step of the way. (even at 7 months pregnant) I tried to get her to leave a little early, but she refused.

I cannot even begin to tell you how wonderful of a person Jill Gately is, but her talents as a photographer are evident in her work.
Jill's prices are very affordable for the DC area, but there isn't a photographer in the area who can compare! Take a few moments to look at her work or give her a call. Either one of these actions will convince you that Jill is the photographer for you, I can guarentee. However with the quality of her work, she will book fast.

I am over joyed that I found Jill to be my photographer. I first met her while I was a bridesmaid at a friend's wedding. She was incredibly fun to be around, professional, and very flexible. Most importantly she took amazing pictures. I have to admit, I'm not the most photogenic person, but she took beautiful pictures of me. Once we settled on a date and place for our own wedding; she was the first person I called. It was one of the best decisions I made. We had decided to have a very small intimate wedding and Jill was willing to work with me on times and prices. My wedding pictures turned out to be better than I imagined. Everyone who sees them adores them. Her photography is beautiful, unique, and if you're willing to take some chances and let her creativity take over; you're shots will be amazing. She has my highest recommendation.

Jill was awesome! Your photographs of your wedding are the only thing that last past the wedding day (aside from the marriage of course!) so you do NOT want to skimp on something like that. Our photos are truly a work of art and we look at them often. Jill was really flexible and we felt very comfortable working with her. Your photographer is with you ALL DAY on your wedding so make sure you like them!

Christopher and I were lost at times with the many available vendors while planning every aspect of our wedding. When it came to photography, I knew that this memorabilia would be priceless and was one priority in allocating our budget. I put finding a photographer on hold after being overwhelmed with so many options.

This break was when I found Jill. Jill Gately.

I was perusing Craigslist for wedding odds and ends when one post bore a "PS" at the end, and to my best recollection followed: if you need a photographer check out Jill Gately.

I did. I checked out her website, which was in the midst of being updated and gussying up. I called. Voicemail. Left a message. Less than an hour later, she called back. We set up a meet and greet and not even a week after our coffee shop chat, Christopher and I had decided to book her for our special day.

It wouldn't be fair not to mention that there are MANY talented photographers out there, because there are. So, why Jill?

In meeting with her she exuded confidence in herself and in her work, all without being pushy.

She's a one-woman show with a full-time job alongside this hobby. She's a full-time mother and wife as well. This made me nervous, afraid she'd be too busy or distracted to deliver quality work; but at the same time, I loved that the photography aspect of her life is something she keeps up with ... it proves her love for the art.

Christopher and I felt chemistry with Jill, unlike the 2 or 3 other prospectives we had previously interviewed. She was all smiles. She made me laugh. She felt like a friend right from the start. So we hired her. Trusted her. And she was never too busy for us.

We did an engagement session at our Leesburg venue which was a terribly long way from her Baltimore home, yet she drove out and was patient with my pregnant and tired self through the session.

She herself was a VERY pregnant lady during our wedding and it didn't stop her from lugging her equipment and self through the gardens of the estate. She was with me morning through night and I never sensed a glimmer of disinterest or fatigue, even in what felt like +100 degrees that day.

She was available by phone or email to hear my ideas, suggestions, and concerns with image filtering/editing.

We have so many great photographs to look through that I STILL haven't found the time to pick my favorites for a book.

She made me feel photogenic :) (and i even remember seeing several shots from our engagement session where I didn't like the way I looked, and upon my request she took them off her blog ... ha ha)

I know that the 5 stars in each category may seem excessive and almost dishonest, but I truly don't know how to give her any less.

Christopher and I were lost at times with the many available vendors while planning every aspect of our wedding. When it came to photography, I knew that this memorabilia would be priceless and was one priority in allocating our budget. I put finding a photographer on hold after being overwhelmed with so many options.

This break was when I found Jill. Jill Gately.

I was perusing Craigslist for wedding odds and ends when one post bore a "PS" at the end, and to my best recollection followed: if you need a photographer check out Jill Gately.

I did. I checked out her website, which was in the midst of being updated and gussying up. I called. Voicemail. Left a message. Less than an hour later, she called back. We set up a meet and greet and not even a week after our coffee shop chat, Christopher and I had decided to book her for our special day.

It wouldn't be fair not to mention that there are MANY talented photographers out there, because there are. So, why Jill?
