Julia and You

Julia is a down to earth, warm and friendly. Her work is light, natural and unposed – she is skilled at capturing her subjects at their most relaxed. Really lovely photography.

I adore capturing beautifully styled weddings, using my years as art director for leading bridal magazine WEDDING to very much influence my style – editorial (naturally) with fine art influences but always storytelling. I work as a duo with equally talented photographer Michelle, bringing together our two styles to create the perfect collection. Michelle specialises in storytelling, whilst I am fine art editorial, so as well as telling your story we are creating what will become your first family memoir. Hopefully something you will be showing grandchildren.

For me, as I only book a limited number of couples a year it’s about us being right for each other. If you just want a photographer to capture the day then I might not be the right one, but if you love editorial photography, want to create something beautiful and tell your own (fun) wedding story we would love to get to know you. At some wedding guests presume we’re friends already, so when you get in touch I would really love to LOTS about you two, about your wedding, the style, the details and the things that are important to you both. I love to have fun relaxed day with you two, after all chances are you will spend as much time with me on the day as any guest!

I have been lucky enough to work with the industry’s finest and I am very fortunate to call many of them friends. I am very fortunate that the combination of stylish weddings and couples with my editorial style means lots of my weddings get featured in top bridal magazines.

Me personally, of course I love photography and imagery which is why I am a Pinterest and Instagram fan, but I am lucky to be blessed with two amazing children and a husband who makes me laugh every day. I have a very sweet tooth and get excited before every wedding at the chance to get dressed up (and wearing red lipstick) and I cross my fingers for golden hour. Oh and I can never decide whether I prefer being blonde or brunette. I shoot on Nikon and Canon and can see the benefits in both, but generally I am Canon and Michelle is Nikon and we both have a double set of equipment both Canon and Nikon so you’ll be well covered.

Reviews for Julia and You


“Booking the lovely Julia was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. From the moment we booked Julia until after the wedding viewing our photos and choosing our album with her she offered such a personal service with incredible attention to detail. Julia went above and beyond to get to know us, understand about our day and what was important to us, and she remembered these small details long after we had forgotten we even said them! We knew Julia was incredible and talented before we booked her (just look at the photos on her blog!) but we were blown away by our wedding photos. Julia and Ian were able to capture everything about the day and must have moved around like ninjas as you hardly knew they were there! If you are thinking of booking Julia for your wedding then stop thinking about it, just do it now, you won’t regret it. Thank you so much for capturing our day so beautifully. We will treasure our photos forever xxxx”


“I just wanted to say again a big THANK YOU for producing such beautiful Wedding photographs. They have bought such wonderful memories to life, and that’s down to the art and skill of yourself and your colleague. Your professional and caring manner from start to end has been a pleasure, and I couldn’t have wished for a better Wedding photographer.”


“Words cannot describe how happy I am when I look at our wedding photos. I didn’t know what type of photography I was looking for when I got engaged. I knew how to describe it but didn’t know what to search for. It wasn’t until I spoke to a friend who runs photography workshops that its called reportage. When I searched I found a lot but your website stood out from everyone else’s. That for me was because it looked warm. The about you was kind and I instantly knew you would be perfect. Thank you for being so prompt with emails, so friendly when answering my questions and so patient on the day. We loved our wedding day. Its been an honour getting to know you and have you capture the beautiful moments of our day. So many people commented about how friendly, funny and approachable you and Michelle were. I’m incredibly happy that we met you. Thank you”
