Hey there!

I am Jill Goehring – owner and lead photographer of Half a Rice Studios. I started my photography business purely with my passion for photography. A friend of mine asked me to do his wedding when I was in college and I fell in love. I love the emotions, the laughter, the tears, the chemistry between people in weddings.
