MEET JULIE THE ARTIST & WORLD CLASS TRAVELER BEHIND THE LENS.

Creating a relaxed, light-hearted experience so you can enjoy your wedding celebrations, while i create beautiful heirloom photos that your famiy will cherish for generations to come.

Joy & Family are at the center of everything I do. I bring my open heart and positive energy to all the weddings I am honored to be a part of. With a go-with-the-flow yet professional attitude, I strive to be a team player and work closely with the wedding planning team to create an effortless photography experience for you and your guests. I laugh with you, cry with you, dance with you, and cheer your love on…all while taking beautiful, authentic, raw, unique photos to tell the story of your day. Using my unique, natural approach to giving direction, even the most camera-shy of grooms come alive in front of my camera.

With an emphasis on capturing effortless editorial, authentic moments & the feeling of the wedding day and surrounding events, I photograph only 12 celebrations worldwide each year, using my relaxed, personable & professional approach.

Based in Charleston, South Carolina, I celebrate my 17th year in business in 2024. I have gained praise from world-class wedding professionals as “One of the Top Photographers Today” and am known as “a JOY to work with.” I am honored to have work seen in British Vogue, Martha Stewart Weddings, Brides, Style Me Pretty, Over the Moon and more lovely publications.

A personal note from Julie

My family is everything to me, so I’m honored to work with yours!

Having a background in Interior Design and Art History has given me an impeccable eye for detail and a love of all things art and culture, which I have applied to capturing the beauty of weddings these past 17 years.

When I’m not behind the camera, you can find me lounging on my candlelit rooftop, sipping champagne and enjoying the simple things in life, barefoot, with my closest friends and family.

You may also find me diving into the ocean or running around a destination city, scouting out beautiful light-filled places to photograph.

In the end, client satisfaction has always been the most important thing to me. I pride myself on truly getting to know my couples: their love story, how they envision their special day, and keeping that at the center of my work. Extensive preparation and surrounding myself with a team that brings a hard-working, joyous energy has proven to create a professional and relaxed environment on my wedding days.
