"I was genuinely surprised by Julia's strong sense of calm, which provided for a seamless experience. In the end, the pictures were spectacular and she successfully caught everything I wanted for my wedding day; however, my favorite part was still how comfortable Julia made you feel in front of the camera. In the midst of wedding day stress, you will not regret having such a cool and collected photographer who knows what she's doing. I think the investment was well worth it. Julia is very reasonably priced and she does excellent work, plus really listens and cares about your need and wants for your special day!"

"Julia was the ideal photographer for our wedding. Our wedding plans changed a few times, due to the pandemic, and she approached each change with flexibility and grace. My husband and I wanted the photos to be authentic and fun, and Julia (and Sam) delivered that and more. We were so comfortable with her behind the camera, everything was so natural and perfect. She also helped keep us on schedule and made sure that everyone was where they needed to be, which was a huge help. In fact, my family loved her so much that she was the photographer for my sister's wedding a few months later! Now when I look at the photos, they really captured our day perfectly. They feel so personal to us. From the smallest details to the most epic photos, Julia is the most thoughtful and talented person you could want for any of your photography needs. Plus, she is just a lot of fun!"

"Julia is amazing to work with! I got engaged in the fall and realized I really wanted to capture the New England foliage for my pictures. I came across her pictures and loved her style immediately. Since my fiance and I don’t take many pictures professionally, I was nervous the photos would come out too “staged.” Even though Julia gave us some minor adjustments to perfect the shot, it never felt forced. Julia gave us prompts to help us feel relaxed and to bring out our natural smiles that ended up making for some beautiful shots. As soon as we wrapped up the shoot and got in the car, my fiancé turned to me and asked, “So are you going to reach out and see if Julia’s available for the wedding as well?” I would 1000% recommend Julia to anyone who’s looking to capture those natural, warm moments between couples, families, or friends. She has a gift in photographing everything you asked for (plus a little more you didn’t expect!)"

"Julia was amazing! Super natural to work with - she made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera. Our pictures are stunning! She was able to capture the vibe of the wedding and worked really well with the lighting of the day. Would definitely recommend. Thank you Julia!!"
"Julia is amazing! We had never done a photoshoot before and she made us feel so comfortable, like it was so natural! We enjoyed the session a lot, and the photos are absolutely beautiful! We ended up having a second photoshoot with some friends, and recommended her to everyone we know. She is not only a great photographer, but so sweet and fun!"
"We can’t say enough about Julia, her passion for photography & her responsiveness to my many questions. As soon as we met Julia, we felt like posting for photos was a normal part of our day!"
"WOW Julia was excellent! I will rebook her for any future photography needs I have and I highly recommend her to anyone else! … My 2 sisters and I all graduated college (masters or bachelors) in 2020 during COVID-19 so I wanted to have a 3 person photo-shoot since we didn't have traditional graduation ceremonies to document our achievement! … Our parents and our husbands ended up joining so Julia had to herd 7 adults along for 2 hours on a hot Boston morning. She could not have handled it in a more professional way! She immediately learned all of our names and communicated her plans very early to keep us in the shade as much as possible (which was very appreciated!) and clarified our expectations since we had a lot of group combinations with the 7 of us … She could probably tell that we weren't "photo-shoot" people so she was great about posing us naturally and adjusting our hair or clothes, making sure the sun wasn't shining in our faces and giving us fun superlatives (like "smile at the person who took the longest to get ready this morning") to get great candid laughing pictures of our family and keeping everyone engaged!
… She patiently customized the photos to what each sister wanted- Boston skyline, nature, walking, sitting, LinkedIn head-shot, candid laughing you name it and Julia was ready for it! We even popped champagne bottles and she was directly in the line of fire of bubbly champagne. She stuck her ground to get amazing shots and laughed it off as she stood up covered in champagne … We all left our session thinking WOW Julia really made this such a fun morning for us as a whole group. Not only will we have great pictures to look back on, but we have the memory of how fun that morning was ( our husbands came into the morning with a less-than-thrilled attitude to participate but Julia somehow kept everyone very engaged and happy!) Within 36 hours of the shoot, I had 8 sneak peak pictures to give us all a taste of how the shoot went and I shared them below. Overall, I'm sure we were NOT an easy group but Julia maintained a sweet, patient and professional attitude the entire time. I don't write reviews often, but Julia was above and beyond my expectations and I couldn't have asked for a better photographer :)
"Let me tell you... JULIA IS A GODSEND. I hired her as the photographer for my wedding this Spring of 2020 (yes, COVID season) to which madness of decreasing our party size from 150 to 90 happened and California decided to dump rain for 3 days straight after not raining for a month (why not, at this point!?). The last thing I wanted to think about was photography and where to take our photos. We had made a tentative plan a month or so in advance, but all of that was thrown out the window three days before and she was willing to recreate an entire schedule for us. She came up with THREE plans for my wedding day in case it was (1) not raining, (2) raining off and on, and (3) dumping rain. THREE PLANS. She spent hours on the phone to find potential places in the Bay Area to take first look photos inside or in covered spaces outside. By 9pm the night before our wedding, she had a plan and I did not have to take a single thought out of my day for it. The day of, she and her team were so smooth and I did not think of a single thing. They directed us to each step and had already talked with my coordinator to make sure they had aligned their plans. The sweetest moments of our day were captured because of how much she cared for the details and communicated so well throughout our entire weekend. She definitely puts in overtime for what you want and the photos themselves are AMAZING. I want to print 50 books worth of them and hand them out, they are seriously that good. I am so thankful for her tactful mindset and commitment to making my wedding day as beautiful as it could be even through the COVID-19 madness. Hire her, people, she gets all the shots you want and isn't afraid to tell Uncle Joey he needs to get his butt over here to take a good photo with the bride and groom. She is the best out there in my opinion!"
