From the jump, I was worried about finding a wedding photographer because, well, we didn’t want our photography to look like “wedding photography” – or at least the stereotype I have of the industry in my mind. We didn’t want staged photos with bridesmaids and groomsmen (we weren’t having any, and we didn’t want much of anything feeling too staged). We didn’t want anything to feel rehearsed or cheesy.
When we found Julie and connected with her, all of our anxiety about finding the right photographer was gone. Laid back, but professional. Her photos we saw were gorgeous, but lacking the pretense we wanted to avoid. Most of all, we felt like she heard what we were looking for, really got to know us and our story, and connected to what was important to us. After the initial conversation, I knew this was the artist we wanted to help us remember our wedding.
We felt totally at ease throughout the process with Julie. She was a great communicator leading up to our wedding, and on our wedding day, it felt like she was a guest with a camera … exactly as we wanted it to feel. She was easy to be around. Julie captured the “feel” of our wedding with amazing photos, yet we didn’t have to take time away from the actual celebrating to stage photos. She was a part of it with us, all the while documenting everything that made our day really special.
The love and energy of our wedding literally lives in the vibrant photographs we have – both in frames and in our album. Julie specifically captured the interactions with guests, the beauty of the setting, and the love of our family, and looking at the photos brings great joy to us.
