Are you ready to have the elopement of your dreams? Well, I am here to make that happen for you! I spent 7 years traveling around the world. I’ve hiked up mountains at sunrise in Patagonia, hiked through rivers in Vietnam, trekked through snow in Canada, and explored temples in more countries I can count. Photography is not just my job, it is my obsession. I will go above and beyond to get you the most epic and incredible photos, true pieces of art you will want to blow up and hang around your home. Not only that, but I grew up in event planning with my mom. I’m insanely organized and can help you every step of the way in planning your big day.

I think one thing that really sets my photography apart from others is the fact that I have been doing all kinds of creative photography for 12 years now. I love creating really creative and different images, making it so you will have wedding photos unlike anyone else. My clients choose stunning and amazing landscapes to get married in and I love fully capturing the incredible beauty of the nature around them. I love those Big World Little People photos that shows how small we are compared to the nature around you.

I can help you with every little step of your elopement planning process and take the stress off of you so you can fully enjoy the most special day of your life.

If you can dream it, we can do it. Whether you want to hike to waterfalls in Iceland, temples in Cambodia, or through the Grand Canyon, let me know what your DREAM is, and I can make it happen!

So, are you ready? Let’s create some art together.

We hired Julia for our elopement in Sedona and wow! We could not be more grateful for it! First, she is extremely communicate and punctual. You never realize how important this is until you deal with vendors who aren't! Second, she has a true knack for lighting, posing, and capturing the scenery around you. She knows what angles best compliment you and her creative mind allows her to capture the most stunning photos- the ones you see in magazines! She's adventurous and has no fears, which means she's ready to go anywhere: the edge of that cliff, in that freezing cold water, over that chasm, into that cave- you name it, she's up for it! Finally, Julia is genuinely kind. This is very important, as it makes you feel more comfortable in front of the camera. Whether it's your first experience or you are a pro, she dampers the anxiety and makes it an unforgettable and fun experience. It was a pleasure working with such a talented and friendly soul. Thank you Julia, we will cherish these moments forever!

Julia is truly gifted and such a pleasure to work with! We hired her for an adventure engagement shoot in Big Sur, and she absolutely exceeded expectations! Conditions were cold and windy, and my hair was all over the place, and yet Julia easily delivered countless photos that we love! I had the hardest time choosing which photo to use for our Save-the-Dates because we love them all! My fiance and I don't tend to feel very comfortable in front of a camera, but Julia knew how to direct us so that we looked natural in the photos and felt as comfortable as possible. She also has an amazing vision for composition, and you can just tell she LOVES what she does. She is passionate, and that totally translates into amazing work. It was also super cool for her to include drone shots, gifs, and even blue hour shots with her lanterns. I am so so so happy to say that the photos she captured for us (of us!) are just as magical as the one she has posted on her Instagram of her other shoots. We couldn't have asked for a better session, and we cannot recommend Julia enough!

My husband and I recently had the pleasure of working with Julia who is an extraordinary wedding photographer and transformed our special moments into timeless treasures. From the very first interaction to the final delivery of our breathtaking photos, every aspect of our experience with Julia was nothing short of exceptional.

Julia immediately stood out for he kindness and genuine passion for capturing love stories. Her warm and welcoming demeanor put us at ease right from our initial meeting. It was evident that she not only had a keen eye for photography but also a deep understanding of the emotions that come with weddings.

Communication played a crucial role throughout the entire process, and Julia exceeded our expectations. She was always prompt in responding to our abundant questions. Her professionalism and transparency created a sense of trust that allowed us to relax and fully enjoy our special day.

What truly sets Julia apart is her ability to capture the essence of our relationship. The engagement session was a delightful prelude to the wedding day. It helped us get used to being in front of the lens and the resulting photos perfectly reflected our connection. On our wedding day, Julia seamlessly blended into the family, capturing both candid moments and the grandeur romance of the day. The trash the dress shoot Julia offers was a breathtaking memorable experience that we would recommend all couples do. In addition, Julia was so amazing including our dog Biscuit. My husband and I wanted pieces of art for our home that balanced both the most incredible day of our lives and the beauty of our favorite place on Earth. Julia gave that to us. For that we are entirely grateful.

The final photo collection surpassed our wildest dreams. Julia has an incredible talent for turning ordinary moments into extraordinary memories. The attention to detail, the play of light and shadow, and the genuine emotions captured in each frame left us in awe. Looking through the pictures felt like reliving the joy, laughter, and love that filled our wedding day.

In summary, Julia is not just a photographer; she is a storyteller and artist who crafts narratives through the lens. Her kindness, passion, welcoming nature, understanding, excellent communication, and trustworthiness set the stage for an unforgettable collaboration. We wholeheartedly recommend Julia Goldberg to anyone seeking not just a photographer, but an artist who transforms moments into memories that will be cherished for a lifetime.

6/5 Stars would hire again.

While we planned our wedding everyone told us, “invest in the photographer, scrimp wherever else but invest in the photographer!” When my now-wife announced that we had selected Julia Goldberg I realized she took that advice to heart. I felt brave one day and asked something like, “but do we need to spend this much on pictures? Will it be that valuable?” Well, anonymous matrimonial planner, let me tell you it absolutely is that valuable and the reason surprised me: my wedding day was a beautiful blur of activities I rarely got time to savor. I wanted the day to last a week but it felt like a flash. Julia captured so much incidental beauty in all these moments I couldn’t connect with. She made permanent perfect memories out of fleeting joys and I am not just satisfied with the pictures she sent us, I am thankful for the experiences she saved. The engagement shoot was an adventure, too, with Julia’s fantastic creativity. She communicates well, she is organized, she is very easy to work with, and for the potentially temperamental brides-to-be out there my lovely (and temperamental) wife would like to mention that Julia is a consummate professional with a Saint’s patience.

Her Instagram is full of great shots with depth and softness and great framing… I don’t have the photography vernacular to really do her justice. And if you suppose she charges too much, mark my words: she doesn’t charge enough.

Julia Goldberg is truly an outstanding photographer! The photos of ones wedding day is one of the most vital things to get right - those photographs are your documentation and memory of the biggest day of one’s life. Finding a photographer who can properly capture and document the day that you say "I do", to me, is the biggest stressor. With Julia, she made our wedding day so easy and stress free. I didn’t have even one concerns about our photos. Her ability to capture the most emotional, intimate moments of our day is far above superb. When you have Julia as your photographer, you can expect professionalism, kindness, suggestion in direction, and a true gift of the final project. Getting our sneak peek made me so excited to know that our full portfolio was going to be brilliant. The cherry on top was that Julia captured our two dogs in our first look with utter perfection. Julia was able to capture our beloved Ravenclaw (German Shepard) and Gryffindor (Black Lab) in some of the cutest Pinterest and Instagram worthy moments. The amount of gratitude I have for Julia is endless.


Literally 10,000 stars isn’t enough to give Julia! We spent an incredible evening adventuring around Iceland with her for our elopement and she was able to capture pure magic. She’s super friendly, professional and communicative throughout the whole process. She even had our full gallery back to us in less than a month!

Julia was an absolute delight!! She was our elopement photographer out in Utah and oh what a day we had shooting together. She had not only picked the locations for us but also had checked them out before we even got there. Julia is a patient photographer. We had some hiccups and she just rolled with it.

Spending a day with out in the park could be a lot but her pleasant personality and great love for her work put us at ease right away. Her deep love for outdoors is quite apparent in her work but we got to see it first hand. Actually it was quite inspiring !!

Thanks for the best memories of 2023!
