We were truly blessed to have Julie as our photographer for our wedding. She was constantly engaged in the process and made our day so much easier!

Julie was absolutely, hands down, the best we could ask for! She took the time to meet with us several times to talk through the day, pictures we wanted, flow of the day and anything else we wanted from her. She made us extremely comfortable while we were taking pictures, too.... Read More We did engagement pictures, a separate shoot with our dog when we found out she was sick (which she just passed away a week ago and it is amazing to have Julie's pictures to help remember her), and then the wedding day itself. With our crazy friends and family Julie took charge when she needed to and directed people where to go which was definitely needed! I couldn't recommend a better person or photographer to help capture your special memories!

Working with Julie was a fantastic experience from the moment we first met her to discuss our dream day! She went above and beyond through the whole planning process. We wanted to have our Italian-themed wedding at a vineyard, but when that fell through Julie was determined to... Read More make sure we got the photographs we wanted. She coordinated with another vineyard to let us take photographs before the reception. Too sweet! Her eye for detail, kind heart, and contagious sense of humor (which kept our bridal party's spirits up at the vineyard as they melted in the July heat!) were appreciated beyond measure. We couldn't have asked for a better wedding photographer. Thank you, Julie, for everything.
