I help adoring couples, deeply in love, live their wedding day to its fullest by making their photography experience feel effortless. I quietly seek the intimate moments of the day and document them in lasting, true-to-life color. Years of experience have influenced my approach and have cultivated a deep understanding of the nuances of a wedding day and the imagery that follows.
I approach every wedding with a profound respect for the dynamics of families and of this most special day. This is your story. You need more than a photographer. A day this important should be trusted to a caring, collaborative partner. Someone that values the emotion - the feeling of the day - as much as the lasting legacy of the images captured.
"As a photographer myself, I chose Julia, for her style which feels very journalistic in nature. I appreciated the way she blended into the seams, and produced moments that are fleeting to the untrained eye. So much of her talent lies in her ability to read people, and to manage the emotions of the bride (couple) and the mothers (let’s be honest) and I have seen her work in so many situations now - She is truly a chameleon, and molds her gentle approach to whatever the day and the couple needs specifically."

"Julia Wade has been one of our favorite and “go-to” wedding photographers for years. Her abounding kindness and thoughtfulness shines through in her photos and the way she interacts on a wedding day. Julia not only creates a friendship with planners but becomes an integral part of the wedding day. I am so thankful to have Julia’s friendship within the wedding industry and far beyond it."

"Julia … we love you and are so honored to have you be a part of it. I feel lucky beyond belief.. Don’t know if I ever could have imagined life could be this sweet. Thank you for capturing it with such love and beauty."
