hi, i'm Julie

I'm intrigued by the uniqueness of life stories and how everyone is somehow connected. it's a joy to witness the tiny moments between a couple or family that are actually the big, meaningful moments in life. this comes in the form of a thoughtful glance, the comforting way he holds your hand, an extended hug that lets you know you're appreciated, a belly laugh that brings tears and on and on. it's these moments that inspire me, and it's my goal to find those little moments throughout your story that make you unique. 

I've been photographing weddings for a handful of years and am usually smiling behind the camera. having grown up in Michigan, i've been told that my midwest charm puts people at ease, along with my attentiveness and perceptive intuition.

 I live in Seattle and have an adorable toddler, Wylie. I'm continually inspired by People who are confident, creative, quirky, passionate, kind, and in love. Send me a note and I'd love to hear about your upcoming wedding or celebration.
