Jill Farrar

John Altdorfer




We met in a Thai restaurant by chance.

A few weeks later, we were taking photos as a team at the Pittsburgh Film Office gala.

And like they say in the movies, the rest is history.

Our photo credits include local and national publications and websites.

We work with major corporations, arts organizations, charitable groups and universities.

But that’s not what important.

What matters is this.

We understand that we’ll be part of your big day for just a few hours. 

But we know you’re counting on our photos to help you relive the magic and joys of that day for years to come.  


That’s a responsibility we take seriously.


"We couldn’t have picked a better duo to capture our wedding day. John and Jill are the dream team... they are so patient, personable and easy to work with! Our guests commented on how much fun they were, and of course the beautiful photos they took. We would absolutely book them if we had to do it all over again. Best decision we could’ve made...besides getting married, of course! "


Brian and Clare Calhoun

"My wife and I had the good fortune to see John at a number of events around town, so when we needed a photographer for our daughter's wedding we asked if he could do it.  We wanted someone who could take the traditional posed shots beforehand but then fit into the flow of the event rather than interrupt it.  Turns out John and Jill can do it all, and at a very reasonable price.  We couldn't have been happier with the results and enthusiastically recommend them."

"My husband and I got married Oct 2019 at Phipps Conservatory and then afterwards had photographs taken on Pittsburgh’s North Shore. When I first met Jill, she and her colleague John immediately put me at ease and I felt like I’d known her forever. She has such a calming presence and she truly helped me to stay relaxed on what is considered the most important day of your life! We are so pleased with the photos...they turned out absolutely stunning and Jill paid close attention to detail. Also, she listened to some of our ideas for poses and background shots and they turned out to be so beautiful. I would highly recommend Weddings by Jill as your wedding photographers...we were so happy with their work.  They have a great eye for capturing all the right moments. "

Kim & Mike Evans

"We had never worked with professional photographers before and Jill and John made us feel very comfortable with the whole process. Jill called before the event to discuss what types of photos we preferred. Her communication, work ethic and the value she provided are well above anyone else that we talked to.  John is really funny and makes you feel so relaxed through the whole process.  The photos they took were gorgeous.  We will definitely be contacting Weddings by Jill again the next time we need a professional photographer.  "

Maria & Adam White

"Jill and John were a pleasure to work with from the very beginning. They were by far the best vendors we worked with for our wedding. We were picky when it came to choosing our photographers and decided to go with them because it seemed they were always able to capture the pure joy from the couples and their guests. John had everyone laughing throughout the event and Jill was incredibly accommodating with our wants and needs throughout the day. There was a lot about our wedding that wasn't conventional and they rolled with everything we threw at them.


It has been almost 8 months since our wedding and we still get comments from friends and family about how great the photos turned out. I would highly recommend using Jill and John to anyone looking for a photographer in the area!"
