Meet a Joshua Tree Local Photographer
Making our home in the high desert since March 2020.
We walked a creative and strange path to get settled here in the middle of the desert.
And since you tend to follow the road less traveled, why would you follow someone else's idea of a wedding?
If your idea of getting married sounds like the following,
you’re in the right place!
You are not alone.
It IS possible to have an epic wedding that doesn’t look or feel like a typical wedding; like what others expect a wedding to be.
Because you don’t live your life the way most others expect, do you?
She’s professional and warm and easy to have a rapport with, which is important on your wedding day!
Julie went above and beyond a typical photographer. Not only was she amazing on our wedding day, but also leading up to it she was very helpful. We had lots of questions about how it all works and she answered quickly and thoroughly. She’s professional and warm and easy to have a rapport with, which is important on your wedding day! She made us very comfortable and had some great ideas for unique shots. Would definitely recommend Julie Laflamme!

I’m all about helping you get married in the most
fun and stress free way.
Your wedding day deserves warmth, passion, and realness at all times.
I’m all about love and connection.
What makes the two of you click? What fate brought you together? Let’s honor and celebrate all the awesomeness of your relationship.
I want you to feel that affection you have for each other and not be worried about looking at my camera.
I want you to know the passion I have for capturing your wedding in a way that is authentically and completely you.
That’s why you need photographs that aren’t forced and a vibe that matches your desire for just being your genuine, happy, loving selves.
I was planning my own wedding, which pretty much started and ended with deciding on which tables to rent.
I was talking with my Love, who told me he couldn’t care less about tables, and I realized I couldn’t, either. He also mentioned being uncomfortable that he wouldn’t know a lot of my guest list. So we axed our plans in one day and planned an elopement in just one month.
The day was more special than we didn’t even plan for. It could be because we basically just let it happen and focused on only the most important things to us: a special ceremony in a beautiful place, a taco cart, and watching the stars together on a quiet beach.
I am so excited to help you also have a truly memorable, fun and meaningful wedding.
I help couples like you experience and remember the best day of their lives.
Oh, and if the phrase “best day of your life” makes you a little nauseous, you’re still in the right place. You can thank me after your wedding that it turned out to be this thing you never expected it to be.
Check out the packages I offer to help you plan and remember your awesome wedding!
What people say
I promise you will not be disappointed, our photos turned out impeccable and fun. Every time we look at them we relive our day.
Julie shines and it comes through in her work. She was born to do this. We took our time finding a photographer because we really wanted someone who could capture not just a snapshot, but an experience.
We couldn’t be more thrilled with our choice and got exactly what we had hoped for and more. She took time with us, gave us pointers, and was lovely with our guests and fit right in with our vibe. I promise you will not be disappointed, our photos turned out impeccable and fun. Every time we look at them we relive our day.

Working with her makes me wish I had occasion to hire a professional photographer more often
She will help make your day smooth. I couldn't recommend her more.
Julie is unique in the world of wedding photography. Not only does she produce amazing imagery, covering every aspect of your day seemingly without effort, she also is a consummate wedding professional with an intimate knowledge of what we needed before, during and after our wedding day. She will help make your day smooth. I couldn’t recommend her more.
Nathan & Colleen
We really appreciate the beautiful way you captured our special day! The pictures of the chapel are amazing!
We really appreciate the beautiful way you captured our special day! The pictures of the chapel are amazing! You got two very shy gals that hate their photos being taken to smile and pose. And of course the photos of our dog Darwin are simply beautiful. We really like the snarly looking picture!
Sara & Erica
Julie did an absolutely amazing job taking our wedding photos. We are over the moon with the finished product!
My husband and I had a couple of phone consultations with Julie prior to our wedding day (at the beginning of the wedding planning process, and then a few weeks in advance of the big day) to get an idea of what types of photos we would like and she had great suggestions for us as well.
On the day of our wedding she was there every step of the way – from getting ready to the ceremony and reception. Her relaxed, calm and upbeat demeanor definitely helped ease us through the process as well.
We could not be happier with the end result and would recommend Julie to anyone looking for an excellent hands-on, down-to-earth wedding photographer. She is the best!

When my husband and I received our photos, we looked at them together and both got misty eyed reliving all of the wonderful moments of our wedding.
When I got married I was lucky enough to have Julie, and her husband, Maurice, as my photographers. I could not be happier with the service they provided! Not only did they capture every candid memory of my wedding beautifully, but every guest at my wedding had wonderful things to say about their encounters with both Julie and Maurice! They were professional, and Julie kept me on track for time, while being sweet and getting all the photos I requested. When my husband and I received our photos, we looked at them together and both got misty eyed reliving all of the wonderful moments of our wedding. I recommend them to every friend and family member, although Julie and Maurice already made a friend out of every family member and loved one that was there.
Kristina & Bryan
Julie has a lovely presence and vibe and we felt so honored she was there to capture our wedding moments.
I highly recommend Julie! She made all the planning very easy and was in fast-communication all the way up to the day of the event. I appreciated that she checked-in to make sure all our photography requests were honored. My partner and I (and the rest of our families!) are very camera shy and Julie made us feel very comfortable and special throughout the day. She was detailed oriented and so thoughtful in the directions she gave us. Julie has a lovely presence and vibe and we felt so honored she was there to capture our wedding moments.
