I completely understand the need to cut the guest list and go somewhere you’ve never been before. The anticipation of a new place has you feeling SO excited, but where do you even start?? That’s where I come in! I specialize in Michigan and Colorado and I can help you with permits, location scouting, Airbnb recommendations, Photo locations, Timeline + Activity Planning, Vendor Recommendations.

I’m all about traveling too! Whether I’m pulling out my camper to the next beautiful elopement location or hopping on a plane, on my way to the mountains!

Exploring is a lot like marriage…and if you want to abandon the traditional wedding day, let’s get outdoors and celebrate your love there!


Hey! I’m Julie! I have two sibling kitties and I have a piece of my heart here in my home state in Michigan and the other half in the mountains of Colorado. I have a teardrop camper (that still needs a name) and I use it any chance I’m able to haul her out. I honestly believe coffee is best while sitting on the couch, curled up in a blanket and music is only good when it’s LOUD with the windows down on a warm summer night.


Elopements are a different experience, unique to each and every couple. Imagine creating a day, so meaningful and completely your own. Nothing feels rushed, there is no stress, no family drama. Life is exactly what you make of it at that moment.

I am here to help guide and plan your elopement. To help you create a wedding so uniquely you. To abandon the traditional ways and to take your love outdoors. I am one who understands the need to take things outdoors, to feel inspired by nature, to feel so alive and free. To feel yourself, to feel calm and at peace. It’s how your day SHOULD feel. To focus on your love, and be in the moment, with no pressure.

You LOVE the idea of Eloping, but CRAVE Mountains?!

Good news! I’m SO DOWN to go with you! I’ve photographed elopements in: Ireland, Puerto Rico, Colorado, Arizona, and Washington. I’m packed and ready to go anywhere you want to go!

P.S The Mountains call to me too!!

So…are you ready to do this? Let’s schedule a PHONE CALL!!

You will not find a more skillful, helpful, or passionate photographer. My husband and I found Julie and instantly fell in love with her photos. Initially, our wedding was supposed to be in Michigan, but we decided to change our plans. Julie, without skipping a beat, agreed to follow us to Colorado. Julie was an incredibly hard worker and was not afraid to give us orders to ensure our photographs came out the best they possibly could. Julie’s personality coupled with her impressive skills as a photographer made her the most easy going and stress-free component of my wedding. Before our wedding, she kept in touch and made sure we had everything we needed and even offered to help out and offer advice for the whole marriage process. If you are searching for a photographer for your wedding, Julie is it. You definitely won’t be disappointed. Julie’s skills, work ethic, dedication, and all around awesome personality simply cannot be matched.

The best thing Doug and I did for our wedding day was have Julie there to capture every moment! No amount of stars will do it justice. Julie's photographs are not only breathtaking, but they are works of art. I am in awe every time I look back on all the beautiful moments Julie captured. We are so honored to be a part of her art! Doug and I were incredibly happy to have such a kind, thoughtful, and fun-loving person to document all our special moments. Thanks to Julie, we get to relive our happiest day over and over again. We cannot express how grateful we are to have you with us on our special day!

I don't usually leave reviews, but I can't help not tell the world how awesome she is! Julie is so down to earth. She is so calm and brought such a calming experience to my elopement. She made me feel comfortable infront of the camera considering I am a very shy introverted person. It was a natural feeling being with her and being I infront of her camera. I felt beautiful and calm. She showed me a couple of pictures and I was amazed on how beautiful I looked and it helped my confidence! I would recommend Julie to anyone and everyone. I hope to one day hire her again. Maybe renew our vows... or just family pictures. Either way she's awesome, very organized and such a great communicator. She a natural and has found what she's supposed to do in life!!! Anyone who has a chance to hire her should feel blessed and take the opportunity fast before she's booked up!

Julie was hands down the Best photographer I’ve ever worked with and I’m so grateful we booked her for our wedding. Julie was prompt, supported us in planning our adventurous ceremony. She is very committed to her work and resourceful to get us a few sneak peek photos the night of our wedding. We did an intimate adventurous ceremony with just immediate family. Julie fit right in and made everyone feel special on this day we were all sharing. I’d recommend her time and time again and cannot say enough good things about our experience working with her. Our entire family raved about her all weekend long. Thank you Julie for working with us!

Julie was amazing!! She helped orchestrate the entire timeline, and accommodated any requests we had! The entire process was made so much easier with her help. As stressful as a wedding day can be, or even planning an elopement, Julie made it that much easier. She made us feel calm, and most importantly made sure we continued to be the center of the day. I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants to plan an elopement or traditional wedding!

Sophie + Max

Julie did an amazing job for our elopement. She was available on short-notice, thought of important details that we overlooked, and the photos turned out better than I even imagined! I definitely recommend Julie and will be contacting her again for occasion photos in the future.
