about julie

photographer | FIANCÉ | podcaster rescue dog mom | globetrotter

My friends tell me I was born to celebrate and I'd have to agree. No... for real, my birthday is New Years Eve and I LOVE a great celebration with any excuse to pop open a nice bottle of champagne, raise a glass and cheers to all of life's best moments. 

I'm a fiancé, rescue dog mom (Isabella Petunia and Brooklyn Begonia), podcast host of Photospark and I love a great adventure.  When I'm not photographing weddings, you can find me exploring the world, trying local cuisine and trying new wines (Sangiovese will always be a clear front runner).


asking a million questions and listening to her incredibly descriptive stories about each person in the photograph. Falling in love with these photos helped me understand who I was as a human — a photographer, and most importantly, a story teller.

Originally from the midwest town of Marshalltown, Iowa, I always knew I would replant roots somewhere by the coast. Currently bi-coastal in southwest Florida and Southern California, living and loving the best of both worlds. 


Growing up, I obsessed over

I will never be the woman with the perfect hair, who can wear white and not spill on it.

paris      -or-      venice?

which is my favorite?

This or That:

Easy. Venice was incredible but Paris stole my heart after spending three weeks alone while dog sitting for my in-laws during the pandemic. I experienced a never been seen quiet, free from tourists version that will be cherished forever.
I'm ready to go back now! 

beach      -or-      city?

which is my favorite?

Answer: Paris

I love the beach but dislike sand.
I choose a city overlooking any body of water.
