Hey, There! I'm Julie.
And here's a look into my story...
Ten years ago, I was wearing another hat in the wedding industry— Rockin’ it out as a Wedding DJ!
I was working along side of my fiancé, Jason as we built a very successful, fun and interactive Wedding DJ business that he continues to operate. (staying booked from referrals alone truly speaks to his sought-after biz!) I took great pride in sitting with every single couple we met planning out how they wanted their big day to go!
And it was through these countless hours, working with hundreds of couples that I credit learning all of the ins & outs of this very exciting, fast-paced industry that paved the road to where I am today— a Passionate Wedding Photographer who cares about YOU, your desires and the importance of your day being about YOU! It’s definitely not a cookie-cutter process when we work together.
Working with such genuine couples, I know "it's all working" when they later share how they loved their personalized experience, feeling like they could totally be themselves. And then witnessing the awe as they see their photos for the first time during their Reveal as they're soaking it all in...this is priceless.
Every single time that I hear words like...
“You were so much more than just a photographer…”
“You spent so much time really getting to know us & what we wanted…”
“You were like a having another bridesmaid out there on my wedding day!”
“Thank you for continuously offering your hand beyond the camera on our wedding day!”
“…we were immediately at ease and ready to go at our engagement session!”
“Thank you for all of the time that you put into everything!”
“You were like a wedding photographer & planner all-in-one! Thanks for all of your help!”
“This was SO much fun!” (and this one coming from the guys is worth gold!)
…it honestly warms my heart beyond words!
THIS IS WHY. This is why I created an experience that is based on spending time listening, learning, guiding, helping out along the way and being your biggest cheerleader throughout your entire journey.
When you are encouraged to talk about what you want and able to ask questions about what you’re not sure about (I mean it’s not like you plan a wedding everyday…it’s quite ok to have a lot of questions!), you'll relax and have fun…YOU will shine!
Whether it’s your first dance, the first time you see each other on your special day, or you're sprinting to the finish-line with your partner to be wed (and yes, I shot this exact scenario!)…there's no doubt that I will feel the hair raise on the back of my neck as I am capturing your moments. Every.Single.Time…let’s just say, that I’m a hopeful romantic through ’n through! I love my work. For me, it's always about people first and I will be throwing in 110% of my heart & soul on your Wedding Day!
And this is who you’ll have on your side, when you hire Julie Frances Photography— passionate, energetic Wedding Photographers who will have your back and will be your eyes, so you can go out there & be YOU, have fun, and live in the moment, when it matters the most!
You'll be reliving your very own BEAUTIFUL, REAL, STORYTELLING memories for years to come!!

I'm not a big fan of taking photos but Julie made it a lot of fun & very comfortable...We were very impressed with her creative direction and all of the laughs!
Marianne & Jeremy
We are so happy with how they turned out. The finished book is beautiful, and the canvases are perfect! What an amazing experience having you as our photographer Julie, start to finish. You both took time on Christmas Eve to deliver something to our family that you knew we were SO excited to receive. The album is a treasure, we love it!

I LOVE every.single.one
Julie Frances Photography was founded during a time in my life of personal healing. My creative heart was reborn and my passion to inspire & encourage others was like a rekindled flame.
Since, my dedication of helping people bring their celebrations to fruition & capture it in a way that’s true to them has really become my thing.
So much so, that an experience was created to eliminate your worries, create real connections, allow you to feel like "YOU" beautifully, while we creatively capture & document your personal story! It's a win-win!
Real Connections = Beautiful Storytelling Memories
