“Hiring Jill to be our wedding photographer was the most easiest part of our wedding. Her work and her dedication in making her couples feel special definitely proved that we had made the best decision. During our wedding she was completely focused in capturing the best of our wedding and after receiving our photos it showed all her hard work. She was very friendly, patient, and understanding with all my guest and wedding party. She definitely made my wedding who effortlessly when it came down to taking pictures. My husband and I loved working with Jill and she most definitely be our photographer from now on.”

“We are so happy that we were referred to Jill of Half a Rice Studio to be our photographer for our Viet engagement ceremony. I didn’t have time to go over much details with her prior to the event but she’s very professional, and well prepared. Everyone of our families and guests loves her fun and sweet personality. The photos came out fantastic ! we love everything in every picture; the angles, lighting, pose, color. I would recommend Jill over and over again!”


Sujun & Calvin (11/18/2018)

“We enjoyed working with Jill very much. She spent the most part of our first meeting learning about us, our stories and our preferences instead of trying to sell her service. She recommended package that best fits our needs. We found her price to be very competitive. She was always very prompt responding our questions and flexible when we have to reschedule our session due to bad weather. Jill always showed up prepared, she had an assistant working with her at both our pre-wedding shooting and the ceremony. She went to our wedding venue before the ceremony to assess the location and plan for potential shooting areas. So, it is no surprise that our photos look great! Jill patiently worked with us on the album design after the ceremony and promptly responded to our requests. Most of the time she was waiting on us. Overall, we find Jill to be very nice, easy to work with, and prompt with a great service at a competitive price. We highly recommend Half a Rice Studio to others.”

“Jill is amazing! The second we meet her we knew she was going to do great! What I love most is how genuine of a person she is. She makes sure to get to know you and the vision you have for your photo’s. On our wedding day Jill made sure to get pictures of everything we wanted and more. When we received the pictures we could not believe how great they came out! You will have no regrets choosing Jill as your photographer!”



Quynh & Anson (11/09/2018)

“I had Jill for both my engagement session and wedding . All I could say is I made such a best decision to have her as my photographer. My husband and I don’t really know how to pose for pictures. Jill directed us and told us what to do; Her bright personality helped us ease the stress and made us feel very comfortable to work with her. The pictures turn out beautifully. Jill has a magic touch to make everything look like a dream in the picture, even with a not very nice background. Especially in the wedding day, I can’t imagine how she could take pictures from so many angles, like she has been everywhere at the same time. She was not only taking pictures, she helped us catch the precious moments. Jill really has the talent and passion for what she is doing, together with the great enthusiasm, I have no doubt that she will be more and more successful in her career. Once again, thank you very much for going above and beyond our expectation!”

“Jill did our engagement and wedding photos. We were repeatedly grateful that we chose her for our big day. She is absolutely professional while being incredibly friendly. She immediately put as at ease while taking our engagement photos making it nothing but a fun experience. After we saw the photos from our engagement session we couldn’t wait for her to capture the wedding day. Her photos are beautiful and she does a great job of capturing the essence of the day. She somehow managed to be in every place at once on our wedding day (without us even realizing it) and captured every precious moment we will want to look back on. She will be a our go to photographer for any future needs. Can’t sing her praises enough.”

“Jill is AMAZING! During our pre-wedding shoot she put us at ease straight away, we laughed lots and the photos were just awesome. From the beginning to the end she offered endless advice and guidance. Her experience and professionalism shines through, allowing you to relax and have the best time during the session! She is seriously talented and genuinely love what she does! If you’re thinking about booking her, DO IT!!! You won’t be disappointed! She has captured great moments we will cherish forever!”

“I don’t even know where to begin! Jill was such a pleasure to work with. She made me and my husband feel completely comfortable throughout the entire process – like we have been friends for years! She stayed in constant communication with me to ensure that every detail was taken care of. She put time into getting to know me and my husband, and captured our story and personalities in every photo she took. Very personable, outgoing and a joy to take pictures with. By wedding day, I felt like Jill was one of our guests, not just our photographer. We were so anxious to see the pictures she captured on our special day, and we were almost in tears watching the sweet slideshow she prepared for us! The pictures were amazing! Every one of them. As we went through each photo, it felt like we were there, reliving our wedding day. Jill is extremely talented and I couldn’t recommend her more. If you’re shopping for a photographer, you have found the one! I can’t wait for her to take our family pictures one day 😊 We have found a photographer for life! (Side note: Jill also did our engagement photos, and those were not only a blast to take, but the pictures turned out incredible! I am now having to figure out how I’m going to frame all of these photos!) Thank you so much, Jill for everything!!! You really went above and beyond.”




Maddie & Juan (Engagement Session on 10/03/2018)

“Jill is so great to work with! We had to change our plans a couple times, and she was super flexible with us. My fiance was not super excited about the photo session going into it, but she ended up making us really relaxed, and we ended up laughing and smiling the whole time…which had us take great natural pictures as well! Finally, she got us our pictures back really quickly. I would definitely recommend Jill’s services.”

“Jill is a dear friend of mine since first grade. But that’s not the reason I had her take my wedding photos, I just want to show off that fact, because if she’s not a great photographer I wouldn’t fly her from Texas to California for my wedding, I could have picked someone local. And how often do you to see a photographer that gets to eat lobster with the groom and bride at the sweet heart table during the wedding reception? See? Told ya we were close friends 😀 Jill takes beautiful photos, I think I would have to go into details how beautiful it is because you can just go look at her work and you will agree with me. Now there’s a different between a good photographer and a GREAT photographer. A good photographer goes to work on time, take good photos, and deliver the photos to you on time. A great photographer will wake up early, show up early, guide you through the important day because you’ll get hammered with many things, take great photos and deliver them TWO WEEKS EARLY that when you get the photos you’d be like “Whattttt…already?” Jill is a great photographer.




Kimberly & Brad 08/03/2018

“We’re so very happy and blessed to have chosen Jill to be our wedding photographer and be by our side for our special day. From our first meeting, we were confident she was the talented, professional photographer we needed and her wonderful personality was the icing on the cake. Our engagement and wedding photos are amazing! She captured the fun and excitement of both of these special events.”




Linru & Justin (Engagement on 08/13/2018)

“I highly recommend Jill! Jill is nice, patient, knowledgeable of poses and very efficient! Both Jill and I went to UH, but she was a year ahead of me. We never took the same classes but I heard nothing but good things about her. My husband and I wanted to take engagement photos and I knew Jill is a photographer, so I texted her and asked her about the price and availability. The price is really good and she is super flexible. Summer time in Houston is way too hot, so I asked her if we can do the photo shoot in the morning like 7:30. She was absolutely fine with it and she got there even 20 minutes early! She was so knowledgeable about poses and places so you don’t have to worry about not knowing how to pose or where you should go. She told us we should receive our pictures around 2 weeks after but we got them earlier than that! All of the pictures look nice and they got a lot of compliments from our friends! My friend even asked me who the photographer is. I highly recommend Jill because she is an amazing photographer!”




David & Kelsey 06/30/2018

“I’m so glad we hired Jill to photograph our wedding! She is a pleasure to work with and the pictures are incredible. Jill was always well prepared, punctual, and did a great job communicating. She also brings a creative touch that is reflected in her work. She will be my lifelong photographer.”



Thao & Huy 06/16/2018

“HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!! I had Jill as a photographer for my tea ceremony party and absolutely in LOVE with the service and the final product!!! I knew that I made the BEST DECISION choosing Jill when all of my family members and friends kept complimenting our pictures and asking whom the photographer was. Jill has so much passion for what she does. She made sure to provide the most personalized service and capture all the special moments I wished to have for my day. She’s so friendly and has a great personality so I feel very comfortable in front of her camera. We had so many guests at our party but Jill was so good and talented, she catches everyone’s best moments. Every time, I look back at my album with teary eyes. So much emotions, so many memories she helped me keeping in each picture. Again, I love Jill as a person and her work!!!! Such a young talented photographer!!!!”




Lily & Dustin 03/09/2017

“Jill is amazing!!! She is very detailed, creative, energetic, professional, prompt, skilled, and sweet as can be. She delivered 600 edited photos from my wedding in a matter of three days! The photos were outstanding, and magical, they brought me tears of joy, and plenty of laughter. Most of the night was a blur because it all happens so fast and I was wishing I had a videographer until I looked at her photos, there was no need for one with Jill there to capture every moment. Leading up to the big day, she was very good at communicating with me, I never had to wait long for a reply. Hands down best decision I made for my wedding. I will always recommend her for anyone and anything. My forever photographer! Thank you a million times Jill!”
