Jessica Hill from A Brit & A Blonde
Its our first interview! And seeing as we’re a new company, why not interview another fairly new company. Meet Jessica Hill from A Brit & A Blonde.
What do you do? I am a destination wedding photographer for style savvy brides and grooms. My husband and I shoot the weddings together.
Where are you from? The great white North! Canada.
Who are you in 5 words? Design-Loving Blonde Canadian Photographer
What is your style? Photographically speaking: photojournalistic with a twist of editorial thrown in for good measure. Sartorially speaking: anything with stripes and/or bows! But I am learning to branch out.
What is your favorite part of a wedding? Why? The recessional. The couple has just become husband and wife, all their guests are clapping and up on their feet, the music swells and the emotion on both their faces is always unbelievable happiness.
What do you find to be the most memorable about a wedding? Am I allowed to say the brides shoes. LOL. I am a total lover of all shoes. And as a recent bride myself – I totally know how long we girls spend looking for the perfect pair for our big day!
What is a tip you would like to give brides and grooms about weddings? Agree on the top 3 items that are super duper important to you both. Then don’t skimp out on these. You can save your pennies on the million and other things that you will need for your wedding.
In a few sentences, as to not bore us 🙂 , what brought you to Costa Rica? The sunshine! Knowing that we would no longer need to take 20 mins to get ready to brave the elements in a Canadian winter. Trading in our winter boots and gloves for shorts and swimsuits was the best thing we ever did.
What is your favorite place in Costa Rica. Why? That is a tough one. I guess I would have to say Arenal. That is where my husband and I were when we decided to change our lifestyle and officially move to Costa Rica.
What do you love about your line of work? My husband and I both use to work in advertising agencies with big corporate clients. We would work around the clock creating some great award winning campaigns but there was no real satisfaction in it. When I receive a thank you note from our brides and grooms they are so heartfelt and sincere. We have created memories for them that will last a lifetime and be past down for generations.
Tell me something, anything. I am a big lover of film. Just watched last night a British film called ‘Submarine’ – so well written, beautiful art directed and shot. According to one of the characters the ocean is 6 miles deep. I never knew that. Kinda fascinating.
