Choosing Juliana and Brandon to be a part of our special day was hands down the best decision made during wedding planning. These two created magic with their photos and they listened to every thought, vision, and dream I had as a bride. I trus...
ted their creativity and ideas 100% and I wouldn't have chosen anyone else to capture the best night of our lives! Not only are they wonderful photographers, they are just great people too! They made sure we were comfortable during every shoot, and made awkward poses/moments feel completely normal and fun. I can't thank them enough for photographing our big day, and for making the entire wedding experience truly a dream come true!

They have some serious skills. I would 100% recommend them to photograph any event!!

h us. Juliana made sure every detail, from hair to wrinkles in my dress, was fixed before each shot. If by slight chance she missed something, she was more than willing to flawlessly edit the image. The day of the wedding, she was like a built in wedding planner, she made sure everything was on time and made sure we got every family photo that we wanted. We even ran a little ahead of schedule because of how organized they were the day of the wedding which made my wedding day jitters a little better. I’ve also experienced pre bridals and a wedding day as a Matron if Honor. I gained a whole new appreciation for the hard work that Juliana and Brandon put into each shot. I wouldn’t change my choice of photographer even if I could. I was very lucky to score a spot with them! I’d pick them 1000 more times if I could!
