"Julia was delightful to work with and I am over the moon with how our engagement photos turned out. Prior to picking Julia as our wedding photographer we sat down over a cup of coffee to go over her portfolio and packages she offers. I knew instantly by her timeless style that it was a good fit for us. I loved that her images don't appear overly edited but crisp and how you remember the actual day.
For our engagement shoot I was a little nervous going into it. I'm not quite sure how to pose and was afraid we'd appear awkward. Julia gently guided us through different poses that felt natural and organic but photographed beautifully. She welcomed our ideas and helped create some of her own with our unique setting and props. In just a few short weeks, Julia had our online album ready to view and I was blown away! I couldn't believe that was us in the photographs, they were so beautiful. I can't wait for Julia to photograph our special day and would highly recommend her to capture your special moments."
"Julia has captured so many amazing moments in time for our family. She is dependable, flexible, and brilliant behind the camera. She was patient and kind during both of my children's newborn shoots (even though neither child would cooperate with napping). She always has great suggestions for locations for our family shoots. Basically, you won't be disappointed when it comes to Julia. You'll get all you're asking for - AND MORE."
"Julia Joy is an absolutely fantastic photographer! Whether it's a wedding, engagement session, family shoot or party, she captures not only incredible images but captures the overall feeling of the event. She is incredibly professional, prepared, friendly, and affordable. She has done photo shoots for my son as a newborn, 1 year old, and as a 2 year old, and I get giddy every time I see her work. I truly can not recommend Julia Joy highly enough, you won't be disappointed!"
"We have used Julia for a variety of occasions. She photographed our wedding, took our newborn photos (of twins nonetheless), and has done many family photo sessions as well. One thing that really stood out to me originally was that she has a degree from an accredited photography school. She has loads of experience and has done lots of work with professional photographers, photographing weddings and other momentous occasions. Julia is friendly, flexible, and listens to your ideas. She has a great eye for photo spots and takes and edits wonderful photos. As part of our wedding package, she created a beautiful wedding album in a timely manner. She also goes above and beyond to provide many quality digital images within a reasonable time frame. I have been beyond happy with Julia's service and professionalism. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a wonderful photographer."
"My husband and I couldn't have asked for a better person to capture our wedding. It was POURING (literally) rain 10-14-16 for most of our pictures. Julia was a trooper along with her assistant! My family and friends were so impressed with her work, which is art. Many of the photos appeared to almost be sunny and others, which I absolutely love, show the rain. She helped move me and my giant dress (which gained quite a bit of water weight as they day went on); helped convey messages between parties at the property due to lack of cell service; captured some of my most treasured memories of family, friends and reactions to the entire day. Julia was even able to capture a picture of all three dogs behaving at once :) There's nothing bad anyone could ever say about Julia, seriously. She was very patient, never once complained about the weather - even stuffed an umbrella in her coat so she could keep shooting, was always professional, never pushy and my favorite, she's positive! Everyone thought I had lost my marbles when I said I wanted to get married out by the pond under the willow... in the rain. The weather man was spot on with his forecasting (NOT) and it was still raining come ceremony time. It was brought up that we could move inside the barn, but I chose the venue for the tree. Julia came in and told me it would look amazing because everyone was standing with umbrellas. She made me feel like it was OK to do what I really wanted. I was pretty low key about everything, except that one piece and it was nice to be supported. She even complimented me multiple times about my ability to go with the flow. Can't control the weather right? I could keep going on and on, but in short, if you want someone to really capture the feeling of your event, rain or shine :), who is professional, friendly and supportive, Julia is the photographer for you!"
"We had Julia photograph our very small wedding and our reception that took place a couple months afterwards, she did an incredible job at bot locations!!! She was very professional, fun, relaxed, honest, and extremely, extremely easy to work with. Julia took more pictures than we expected and captured EXACTLY what we wanted out of the ceremony and the reception. We let Julia know ahead of time what was important to us, and she captured everything and more, Julia is creative and easy going. EXTREMELY pleasant to work with making the day easy and moreover fun!!! there were NO stiff posed hum drum pictures. I highly recommend Julia to anyone who wants to capture everything they wish out of their event. The images that were presented to us were beyond our expectations in numbers, creativity and sheer beauty. Our images came back to us quicker than we had expected which was a real PLUS!! Do yourself a favor if you need a an excellent photographer, hire Julia, you will be more than happy that you did."
"We loved working with Julia. She made us feel so comfortable when sometimes trying to be "natural" and ourselves can sometimes be difficult when you are the center of attention and ON CAMERA. She captured some amazing photos and so many candid shots which are some of our favorites. Julia did our engagement photos as well as some family and newborn photos when our son was born - two big life events we are happy she captured on camera. Will recommend her to anyone."
"We have had our pictures done multiple times by Julia and every time she has managed to capture beautiful shots of our family at every stage. She is flexible and willing to drive different places. Julia's passion and talent for her craft is apparent in the quality of photos she produces. We always do and will continue to recommend Julia to friends and family!"
"Julia was AMAZING. My entire family (6 of us) enjoyed our session. There were lots of smiles both behind and in front of the camera. Julia was so easy to work with and the finished products were absolutely beautiful. I cannot recommend Julia enough. You will not be disappointed! We hope to work with her in the future for senior portraits and engagement photos!"
"She was very flexible, nice, and took great pictures! She meet up with us in a remote location on a holiday, last-minute! Her price was really great, she delivered everything on time, and she helped guide us through the poses. The photos were on a password protected site that your family can see and download from, as well as purchase prints. Thanks Julia!"
"Julia is such a pleasure to work with! I have used her multiple times in the past both personally and professionally. She is so sweet and easy to work with and her photos are breathtaking! She is very affordable and comes with a great deal of experience. I highly recommend her for anything you need photographed; wedding, party, newborn photos, family photos, maternity shoot, engagement session. She does it all!"
"Julia was amazing! My sisters and I had a really limited time window to get pictures done for a Christmas gift, but also did not have a set time due to an event happening the same day we got them done. She always promptly got back to me when i had any questions. She was flexible and met us exactly when we needed to to get them done. She guided us through picture taking process and made it feel really comfortable and fun! I believe the normal the turnaround time is 2-3 weeks, but she was able to get them back to me in a week to give as a gift! Thank you! which by the way, the pictures were absolutely beautiful!! I would highly recommend using her for any photography needs!"
