Hey, There! I'm Julie.
And here's a look into my story...
Let’s take a quick trip down memory lane before I was a wedding photographer. I was wearing another hat in the industry— as a Wedding DJ, working along side of my fiancé, Jason as we built his very successful, interactive Wedding DJ business.
Spending countless hours with hundreds of couples throughout the years, it was quickly established that our style of “putting in the time” to get to know our couples long before their wedding was something that was seen & felt by all. We quickly became referred out by many venues & planners. And at the end of every celebration,
we had people coming up saying that we were “not like the other DJ’s”.
This was a good thing. We were known as the DJ’s who cared.
Sitting behind the booth running the controls (allowing Jason to head out & do his magic on the mic), I observed. And when it came to wedding photographers, I saw some who were great, but too often I saw those who were arrogant and unfriendly. I would see the smiles wash away from the happy couple as they were being rudely bossed and abruptly interrupted during their Reception. When I noticed these less-than stellar moments, I could only imagine how this couple who had hired them must have been feeling. I couldn’t understand this behavior.
If their job was to capture joy, love, and emotion, while documenting once-in-a-lifetime moments for people, why wouldn't they come in smiling, full of positive energy, support and dedication?
Skip ahead. When Julie Frances Photography shows up on Wedding day to photograph your wedding, we’re ready to do this thing! Feeling happy, excited & prepared, knowing exactly what is important to my couples, I am fully committed and so is my team. From feeling my hair raise on the back of my neck as the bride enters the ceremony (Yes, it gets me every.single.time) to the moment of holding back my tears during the Father-Daughter dance! (I have to tell myself, Nope don’t do it- don’t listen to the lyrics…)
Can I just say, I am a hopeful romantic through n' through?!
