2016 Best of The Knot Pick! | Award-winning Wedding Photography


It is with utmost pleasure and gratitude that I share some exciting news - I won The Knot’s Best of Weddings Award for 2016!! This year the competition was the hardest it has ever been - only the top 2% of vendors across the country earned this honor.

A key piece of this award was the reviews I received from clients. I am so awed and humbled by the amazingly kind things people had to say. The collage here features some of the many couples I've been blessed to work with and who shared about their experiences with me. Here are just a few of my favorite amazing things these lovely people wrote:

"She is much more than a photographer and anyone would be lucky to have her by their side at their wedding. Oh and her photos were GORGEOUS!!!!!!!"

"Julie is one of the best decisions we made for our wedding."

"About 5 minutes before my husband and I were scheduled to do our "first look" a freak hailstorm came barreling through our venue. I remember thinking "don't cry, don't cry" and "all my work is ruined" and just at the right moment, Julie said "This is great! Rain photos offer the most beautiful lighting!" I calmed down immediately and embraced the moment."

"The quality of the photographs is amazing - both the portraits and the candid photos look like they could have come out of a magazine - yet they all look real and capture the emotions of each moment to a tee. I recommend her as highly as possible!"

"Julie is an amazingly talented photographer who magically works natural light and capturing candid moments. Her photography style is easy going while still being able to capture the essence of what's going on at your wedding or event. Her photos really bring out the best in the people she's photographing. What really stands out is her attention to detail, and how much she cares about her work and her clients. She is so much fun and lovely to work with. And also, her photos of our wedding got us published in a wedding magazine, so yay!!"
