Jill was the best part of our wedding experience. She did an amazing job. From engagement pictures, to bridals, to telling my husband that he was “advanced” at posing. She was wonderful and made us feel so comfortable and at ease. I would recommend her to anyone! She’s the best. More...

Jill truly captured every detail of our wedding day in quality photographs that we can cherish for the rest of our lives. If there were one thing I would recommend to make all of your hard work wedding planning worth it I would say hire a professional photographer . That professional would be Jill. She got every detail she could find at our venue, from the decorations I spent countless hours hunting, to the cake, to the moment we said our vows it is all there for us to relive through her beautiful photographs. She is kind and patient, punctual and professional. She communicated a timeline to me for pictures that I actually used to create the agenda for the wedding and reception. She shot our couple and family photos in record time so that we did not keep our guests waiting too long (although I'd recommend letting her guide you through the amount of time you should take for this). We really loved having her and I will not recommend anyone else, because I have seen what just one thing left unconsidered can do to a wedding day. She thinks of everything and turns your vision into a reality. We still feel like we are dreaming, when we look at the lovely moments she captured. She also offers prints, a blog specifically focused on your very own day, and sneak previews while you wait for your final collection of superior quality wedding photos. I cannot say enough. Book now, budget for this professional and you will be happy you did! More...

From our very 1st meeting, my husband & I knew Jill was the one. She was inquisitive by way of wanting to get to know us so she could provide a personalized portfolio for us. From the very beginning she was there to answer questions, provide guides for us (such as questionnaires), and was also very helpful as far as suggestions for the best locations for engagement shoots and bridal portraits. Even down to the presentation of our portfolio, the unique and beautiful ways she photographed our rings, wedding day decor, & poses with our wedding party and family, EVERYTHING was beautiful perfection. We wouldn't have wanted to do this with anyone else. There is no one better than Jill and Lainey Bug! :) More...

Jill did an excellent job with our family photo shoot. She was patient, provided us with fun poses, and did a great job with directing the shoot overall. She also provided some props that really helped get some nice candid shots of our family. The pictures were edited nicely and she got them back to us very quickly. I would recommend Lainey Bug Photography to anyone looking to get some formal pictures done at a value price. Jill is AWESOME!!! More...

I absolutley LOVED my newbron photos. Jill came to my house, set up backdrops and used special props that I wanted in the photos. We have five boys so it can be really difficutl to get all of them looking at the same time. She included all of the boys and worked well with our large family. She has a super sweet disposition yet remains in control of the session. The photos were amazing and we used two of them on our birth announcments. I would certianly reccomend Lainey Bug Photography for newborn photos. More...

Over the moon about our family pics! Jill was super patient and easy to work with...even with a moody teenager and hyper 10 year old!
Her work is great and seems to improve with each session. Thanks, Jill!

I absolutely loved my newborn and family photo sessions. And I love love love my pictures! Jill was very patient while working with my baby and my family. She definitely has a gift! She made me feel at ease and took her time with my baby. She was able to soothe him and comfort him easily in order to put him in some really sweet poses. She was also super patient with my 2 year old and had many different ideas to help the session be enjoyable for him too. I would definitely recommend Lainey Bug Photography for any type of photo session!! Thank you!! More...

Thank you so much Jill for our amazing maternity pictures! You picked the absolutely perfect spot and you were so patient and flexible with our various props we had for pictures! It was the absolute best experience! Can't wait for you to take pictures of our sweet little girl in November! More...

Jill did an incredible job with our engagement pictures! With us being from out of town, she chose the location for the shoot for us and we couldn't have been happier. Jill brought some props for us to use, helped us pose, and made us feel at ease. In general, we don't have a lot of pictures of us that we like and now we have a ton! We got both the sneak peek and the full album faster than anticipated which was a really pleasant surprise. She's been very responsive and communicative from the start and has been really easy to work with. We're so excited to have her to capture our wedding day later this year! More...

I own Complete Entertainment Wedding Productions. Our company provides wedding Production, Direction, Officiating/Minister, Entertainment, Lighting and Video services.

I had the distinct pleasure of working with Jill Brisken, Owner of Lainey Bug Photography, on July 1st of 2017!

Jill showed up very early, which is always a very good indication of the level of professionalism of any given vendor. She immediately came up to me, introduced herself, with a smile and warm demeanor. Jill was very convincing regarding her willingness to do anything she could to collectively create the best possible wedding day for our mutual clients.

Prior to the wedding day, Jill was open and willing to clearly and effectively communicate with me, upon my initiation of contact. She even then, seemed warm, professional, and open to suggestions.

Jill provided me with a functional itinerary to help me to better create my Wedding Day Screenplay. This greatly assisted me in more easily performing my contracted duties as the client's Wedding Producer, day-of Director, Entertainer, and Host.

I greatly look forward to working with Jill again... and will definitely be referring her to potential clients, and in general. :D

Lainey Bug Photography was beyond the perfect choice for capturing our wedding day! She definitely has a talent for photography and she uses it so well. She was so easy to get in touch with, and she was very quick to respond after being emailed. We decided to go with Mrs. Jill because she was so helpful and was willing to work with our budget. We told her our budget and she was willing to work with us in every way. She went above and beyond to make our wedding day special. We emailed Mrs. Jill just a few days before the wedding with a last minute picture idea we had found and wanted to do on the wedding day. She was so speedy to email me back and was very encouraging and helpful on how we could get this picture done. She delivered our images sooner than we expected them and we cannot stop looking at them! She really did capture every single moment of our special day. There is nothing that we do not have a picture. And now thanks to Mrs. Jill we have these pictures to look back on our entire lives. We are so thankful for her and God giving her this talent to be able to capture our perfect day. We would highly recommend Lainey Bug Photography to anyone who ask me for an awesome and fantastic wedding photographer! :) Travis & Chana More...

We really lucked out when we found Jill! We had another photographer booked, but things fell through so 4 months before our wedding we had to find a new one. Another photographer posted our inquiry on a photographer’s blog and we got about 20 positive responses, including Jill’s. When I checked out her website, I knew she would be a great fit for us. I contacted her and she responded very quickly, answering all of my questions and providing more information and photos for us to review. After a few email exchanges we talked on the phone and my first impressions were confirmed – she was so nice and helpful – so we decided to go ahead and book her for our wedding! In the lead up to the wedding she was very responsive via email and incredibly well organized, which was a huge reassurance to us. Going into the wedding we had full confidence that Jill would do a great job, and we were not disappointed! Since it was raining on our wedding day she brought clear umbrellas, which we used for our First Look photos and it turned out beautifully. She was flexible and very easy to work with throughout the day. She gave us directions for our poses, and did a great job of incorporating the poses I had requested. I received compliments from family members about how nice she was, and how hard she worked for us. She did her best to get all of the photos we requested, and had a great eye for capturing candid moments. During the reception she was always close by to get a photo of a group of friends or family members for us, but she was never obtrusive. And perhaps most notable of all, she was very quick to provide us with sneak peeks via Instagram and Facebook, as well as a blog post and full wedding gallery. We were blown away at how quick the turnaround was, and how gorgeous the photos turned out! Having our entire wedding gallery back to us within 3 weeks was beyond our wildest expectations. We absolutely loved working with Jill and are thrilled with our photos, which we will cherish forever! More...

Jill did an incredible job with both our engagement and wedding photos! Adding the engagement session was such a great idea because it helped us get to know her more and feel more comfortable posing and figuring out what we like. With us being from out of town for the shoot, she chose the location for us and we couldn't have been happier. Jill brought some props for us to use, helped us pose, and made us feel at ease.

Throughout the whole process, she's been very responsive and communicative and has been really easy to work with. Jill even came to Asheville one Saturday with her husband to scope out locations around downtown and get familiar with the area. She is incredibly detail oriented and we worked back and forth a lot to make sure timelines, locations, shot lists, etc. were all worked out as much as possible ahead of time. I was also really grateful we had her bring a second photographer. Ashley helped keep things moving smoothly through the day and had some great ideas for poses.

In general, we haven't ever had a lot of pictures of us that we like and now we have a TON! We got both the sneak peek and the full album for both the engagement session and wedding faster than anticipated which was a really pleasant surprise. I can't say enough great things and would absolutely recommend Jill's photography services!

Jill did an amazing job with our family pictures! She was so friendly and took the time to make everyone feel comfortable and relaxed during our photo session. Even with a rambunctious 4 year old we got so many amazing pictures! I loved her creativity with poses, props and backgrounds. I will definitely call again to do our next family pictures!!! More...

Jill did an amazing job with our family photos. She had lots of creative ideas for different poses and took extra time to check out our outdoor location to make sure the lighting was just right. We had so much fun during our fall session. The final pictures are just awesome! More...

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Jill and her company, Lainey Bug Photography. From the get-go Jill was so responsive, organized, and helpful! Not to mention flexible. After we had already nailed down my date my sister discovered she was due with her first baby within just a few days of my wedding, so ultimately we had to postpone our wedding date a few weeks. Jill was so sweet and accommodating and was able to change the dates for me.
I met her for the first time during my Bridal Portrait session and all my wonderful first impressions were confirmed. She was prompt, prepared, and overall lovely to work with. I received my portraits back very quickly and I was so happy with the work. Leading up to the big day she was communicating with me almost on a daily basis and was so helpful in being able to organize all the shots I wanted so that we could maximize time and still allow Trevor and I to live in the moment. Jill and her assistant were also so good at corralling our big families which was no easy task. We received our completed wedding gallery in a very impressive time and honestly, I look at the photos everyday. She captured everything, all the best moments and I just cannot thank her or recommend Jill enough!

Jill was great at responding to my initial inquiry, and every other question I had. She was supper flexable. She worked with me when I was no longer able to do my bridal, and when we thought rain was coming after my ceremony. The photos are beautiful and we will cherish them forever. It was a great experience and will most likely use her again of we need a photographer. More...

My husband and I were so impressed at how well our wedding photos turned out! Even in the pouring rain, Jill found a way to make it work. She did my bridal portraits as well, and worked with me through rescheduling and weather issues! Would definitely recommend. More...

I would certainly recommend Jill's services. Even though she did not feel well, she made the trip to take the pictures for my wedding instead of trying to find a replacement at the last minute, and she did a great job! The wedding pictures are beautiful and capture the love we share. More...

Jill is an amazing photographer and awesome to work with! She has such great ideas for photos if you're a very indecisive person like myself. She did a great job on my Wedding photos I was very pleased with every shot. She is very flexible and willing to work with you on anything you request. I loved my wedding photos so much I have asked Jill to photograph my daughters 3rd birthday pictures and I can't wait to see them. Please consider her for any pictures you want taken Family or Wedding, she is great! More...

Q&A

I love seeing the real and true emotions that can only be felt on a wedding day. I want to capture those to bring back those exact feelings that you had on your wedding day when you look at your photos for years to come!

I began my photography business because I loved taking pictures of my three children. That inspired me to learn how to take technically correct photos and develop my style of photography that I love - a mix of photojournalistic style and fine art. This means I catch special moments when I see them happening throughout your wedding day, but I also make time to help my couples pose so they can have beautiful canvases of themselves on their wedding day to hang in their homes and enjoy as art for many years!

I look at photographing a wedding as a chance to serve my couples - I am there not only to work for you on your wedding day, but to SERVE you in any way I can to help the day run smoothly! I also make it a point to care for and serve your family and friends around you, because they are an important part of who you are too!
