Online Proofing, Photo
After pouring through photos of hundreds of local "real weddings" in blogs and magazines, our first choice for photography was Julie Mikos... and how lucky are we that she was available!?!?! It was her gorgeous imagery that first captivated us. Her photos are both artful and joyful, capturing the magic of each couple's wedding day in a very real and honest way. Once we met, her vast experience and her love of wedding day photography was obvious and inspiring. Not only does she take great care in her craft, but she went above and beyond to really get to know us, our history, and our passions. As a result, we were more ourselves in front of her camera, trusting that she would capture the real us... as she clearly did. For both our Engagement Session and our Wedding Day photos, she WORKED it. She was on time, equipped, ready to go, encouraging, insightful, adventurous, and fun! Our E-sess was like a fun date where we were jumping, climbing, kissing, and goofing all over Sutro Baths. And our Wedding Day at Marin Headlands Center for the Arts.... wow. She and her assistant hustled to create all our wedding bliss in detailed shots, capturing the entire emotional story arch of our day. They were also totally stealth. After seeing our photos, my family exclaimed, "How did she get so many gorgeous photos? We never saw her!" I think one of our favorite images was taken after we went down stairs post-ceremony, thinking we had our first private moment alone... but, actually, Julie got that moment of him holding the train of my dress as we beamed happiness, relief, and celebration that we did it! Julie herself is a captivating woman, a true artist, and someone we are proud to call a friend who has given us the gift of so many uniquely special forever memories.

Julie Mikos photographed our wedding, rehearsal dinner and engagement photos and she is AMAZING. Her photos are absolutely beautiful and she captured everything just wonderfully. She also made us feel so comfortable and relaxed. She is fabulous!
I'd pick herReviewed on 1/01/2011 Leizel J
Julie's website caught my eye. We just got married so we are still waiting to see our wedding photos but our engagement photos turned out beautiful. Her pricing was fair and she never tried to sell us more than what we wanted.
