Jill Sagers-Wijangco is a Midwest girl who was born and raised in Iowa. While at the University of Iowa she picked up a camera and fell in love with taking photos instantly. For most of her college career Jill worked at the Daily Iowan where she got her first taste of photojournalism and also won college photographer of the year. After graduating with a journalism degree, she set out on her newspaper career as a photojournalist.
Jill spent over a decade working for the Los Angeles Times, Munster Times, Las Vegas Review-Journal, Omaha World-Herald, St. Petersburg Times and Chicago Tribune. While working at these newspapers Jill covered everything – celebrities, pro sporting events, national news, spot news, and every day life in the community. While working as a photojournalist for newspapers for 10 years, Jill won numerous awards and was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize.
Her assignments took her all over the US with some of her more interesting shoots including photographing President Clinton at the White House and going out on a boat with two baby tigers and a lake filled with alligators.
Jill loves to capture life as it is happening – whether it be a fishing tournament, corporate event, or senior photos – she finds great joy in documenting life, and producing work that her clients will treasure forever.
In her free time Jill enjoys gardening, exercising, hiking, kayaking, and vacationing with her husband and three boys.
