Julia Monaco is a Boston & Northern California wedding and engagement photographer.

She offers a classic & elegant photojournalistic style. 


"Not only did Julia take the MOST beautiful photos of our wedding day, but she worked with such patience, confidence, and kindness. She made me and my husband feel totally relaxed and confident in her abilities. Julia has such wonderful talent and skill. She was able to capture such a wide range of moments, from the stillness and expectations before the ceremony to sweet moments of us dancing and partying throughout the night with our family and friends. Julia far surpassed our expectations. She was so flexible and accommodating when our venue changed a week before our wedding! If you want a reliable and kind photographer who will give you the most gorgeous photos, hire Julia!"

Hi, I'm Julia and I'm so happy you've stopped by! I’m a Boston- and California-based wedding & portrait photographer. I will always be a born-and-raised California girl, but Boston holds a special place in my heart and I'm lucky to call both coasts home. I love exploring the great California outdoors, old New England towns, and my favorite times of the day are sunrise and sunset.  

I've pretty much had a camera in hand since I was 14. 16-year-old me shot her first paid gig just after getting my driver's license; 18-year-old me landed a legit job as a sports photographer; 22-year-old me took a leap of faith and learned to run my hobby as a business. The opportunity to photograph your wedding, your engagement session, or your family is an absolute privilege to me.

about me


Photo sessions with Jules

... are laid-back, natural, and calm. Whether it's a just-because session or your wedding day, the goal is the same: to capture photos that make you look your best, feel your happiest, and years down the road bring up the most joyful memories.

It's ok if you're not "a photo person" - that's what I'm here for! It's my job to be your on-camera coach, get allll the good angles, and give you reason to laugh your hardest & smile your biggest.

I care a lot about quality; I care about your comfort, I care about the people you care about, and the ones who have made your story what it is. I'm excited to work with you to plan your session or big day so that we can make your vision come to life. 

I can't wait to meet you!
