Jill Lehmann Photography
I'm excited to capture memories and I love what I do! Someone told me never to make your hobby your business. I think that person was wrong. One of the bet decisions I ever made was to do just that.
I grew up in Mason City, Iowa, where I started my photography journey. I took a hiatus away from photography for about 12 years and began shooting digitally in 2010 after I realized digital cameras weren't going to be the bane of my existence. The spirit of photography came back like wildfire. Consequently, I attribute it to saving my life in many ways. After a significant death in my family, the only thing that allowed me to feel peace and joy was when I was photographing things and people I love. My joy came back.
I'm eternally grateful to 3P Studios/Paige Peterson for her wisdom, insight, and teaching me the tricks of the trade. I've been shooting with Paige since April, 2013 and started my own wedding gigs consistently in 2014. I love photographing LGBT people and believe this work is important and particularly meaningful.
I have photographed many families, engagements, children, and weddings both in Des Moines, Iowa, (and surrounding areas) along with Mason City, Iowa. I am also a licensed contributor with Getty Images where I've recently been featured on both Forbes and the Huffington Post. My Bernese Mountain Dogs are my favorite subjects to shoot.

I provide honest and creative images to capture your story. Photography is documenting history and I take this very seriously. I hope you'll trust me with your family and getting it right.
