I'M JULIE

IT’S NICE TO MEET YOU

photographer & outdoor enthusiast

Maybe it started with lingering glances ,
that quickly turned to kisses.
Maybe it started as study partners...
that grew into so much more.
Now he’s the one you share the highs with first,
and the one you find comfort in when life gets rough 
You’ve found the one that you can’t imagine life without...the one who feels like home.

You’ve found the one that you can’t imagine life without...the one who feels like  home.

I remember that feeling so well! This summer we celebrate 24 years of marriage, and my Joe definitely is still home for me.

Our very first date (way back in high school!) was at our local State Park. We still love spending time outdoors and whenever we get the opportunity that's where you'll find us.

We believe in love, marriage and commitment. There’s just something about knowing that no matter how hard life gets; or what incredible blessings come your way, you have someone to share it with. You’re in it TOGETHER!

You’re so blessed to have found your “someone”, and I know you can’t wait to get started with planning your big day!

 At times your mind may be spinning with all the things to do and choices to make. Take time to savor this special season together, too.  Remember, what’s most important about your wedding day is you’ll start your new life together with your best friend surrounded by those who love you most.

 I would love to know more your love story and help capture the emotions and memories of your special day!

the race marked out for us.

marked out for us

ALWAYS THE BEST PLACE TO BE! The place where loved ones gather. The place where traditions are born and connect the generations. The place where you can let your hair down, get messy and be silly. In the arms of the one you love the most.
