We hired Julie for our October 2020 wedding and it was one of the best decisions we made! She is absolutely incredible!! She was so kind, on time, professional, fun, and adventurous which is everything we could have asked for! It was raining and at the very end of evening most of us went outside and danced in the rain. Julie was out in the rain the entire time snapping photos and enjoying the rain with us. Not every photographer would have done that and that is just one of the many examples of how amazing Julie is. I would recommend Julie to anyone!!
Julie was able to take beautiful pictures of our engagement without me knowing she was there to do so until after the proposal. After we saw how much we loved those pictures we knew we had to book her for our wedding as well. She traveled to Michigan to do so and captured the best moments of our wedding day so perfectly. I could not love our pictures more.
Julie is the most authentic person with the best personality. She made sure that we were comfortable and made us feel like we were the only people on the mountain despite her and others being there for our adventure wedding. Her photos are worth every penny. The photos she took of us exceed beyond expectation and were absolutely breathtaking. If you want amazing pictures with the best view and something adventurous please contact Magnolia + Ember. We will use her for every picture opportunity in the near future.
I don't know how to put into words how amazing Julie is. Her approach to photography, especially for two people who aren't the most comfortable in front of a camera, is incredible. She made us feel so calm during our engagement session as well as our wedding photos. Her style is very unique and truly captures the love between two people. I can't recommend her enough! She is worth every single penny.
Working with Julie was an absolute delight. As soon as I spoke with her on the phone, I knew she was the right photographer for our wedding (a destination wedding in Joshua Tree National Park). I wanted someone to capture natural and adventurous photos, instead of traditional portraits that are more posed. Our wedding photos turned out amazing! They are exactly what I had hoped to get from our wedding. And I have gotten so many compliments on them. Julie is a gifted and creative photographer. In addition, she is dream to work with. She was flexible and easy going, and also had great advice and answers to all our questions. She was so accommodating and easy to work with throughout the day. The little touches she puts into her work, and the sweet gestures she makes to her clients were wonderful. I would 100% recommend hiring her for your photography needs!!
