Thanks for your interest in our Photography!

Helo Photography is located in San Antonio, TX. but we also shoot photos in Boenre, Fredericksburg, Kerrville, Austin, Houston, and Dallas. Telling a story through photojournalism is what we do best. Our style is mostly modern and artistic, but we're open to achieving whatever you may envision. Keeping up with the latest styles of photography is a challenge that HeloPhotography is all about. We are constantly updating our business to make the process of working together a more comfortable, easy experience. To satisfy our clients even further, We are currently offering photo viewing within 3 weeks or less after the photo shoot!

Note from the owner: I've always had an abundant passion for shooting photography from a young age & decided at the age of 14 to pursue becoming a professional photographer.. I've been very blessed to be able to say that I reached that goal a little over 5 years ago. I'm laid back kind of guy with a fun approach. My love for all things photography has made me take it up a notch and we now offer Family/Children, Newborn Baby, and Dog photography in addition to Wedding photography. Having my clients come back to have me capture so many aspects of their life is a remarkable feeling.

Weddings: While we're based out of San Antonio, 90% of the weddings we photograph are located in the Hill Country area including Boerne, Fredericksburg, and Kerrville Tx. We take pride & joy through documenting your special day & capturing those special moments for a lifetime. We currently offer great wedding packages which include online viewing/ordering gallery for the bride as well as guests(optional), hard cover photo books, engagement/bridal shoot, second photographer on location, and more.

Please feel free to contact us for pricing and any questions you may have!

Julio was wonderful to work with! Responded quickly through email and text, kept up with the details better than I did, and was a reasonable price for the high quality work we received. I have always been camera shy and insecure about my appearance in photos. But Julio and Mack made me feel very comfortable. I was very, very pleased with the results -- the colors are vivid, the day was captured beautifully, and the photos look fresh and in the moment. All of the best memories were recorded so perfectly.

I am so happy that I chose Julio as my photographer. The dress was great, the food tasted wonderful -- but the photos are definitely the winners of this special day!

Julio's photos FABULOUS, so much better than the average photographer's wedding pictures. He was very professional, getting the shots we wanted, but taking care not to get in the way of our guests. He was fun to work with, even when we surprised him with unusual props. Helo Photography costs a little more than the average photographer, but Julio is worth every extra penny!!

Julio was such a blast to work with! I never imagined the amount of compliments we’d end up receiving from our photos (especially considering how non-photogenic my husband can be!), but everyone who’s seen them has had nothing but the very best things to say & have requested his contact info. My husband even admitted what fun he had during our photo shoots, and let's just say he's a tough one! Julio captured so many great styles of photos for us & I’m so happy to have the emotion of our wedding day now captured for a lifetime. Definitely worth every penny and much more! I know I won’t look back in 20 years and think my photos are outdated, like some people’s I know(haha, sorry mom ;)!!) considering he gave us such a generous variety of beautiful photos. All the photos were fabulous- from our engagements, to my bridals, to our wedding day. Not a single complaint. They were also delivered in the 2 weeks as promised. After getting to know Julio and receiving our photos, I can now say I feel honored to have had him photograph us. Thank you Julio for putting up with all of us and we look forward to having family photos done one day!!

We couldn't have asked for a better photographer! He was not only a photographer, but a real artist! The photographs turned out AMAZING!!! We are 100% satisfied with Helo Photography and would recommend them to all of our friends and family! In fact, I told my husband, I want Helo photography to be our photographer for all of our pictures going forward! Also, the promptness on getting the link to our photographs was the fastest I've ever encountered! Keep up the great work, Julio!

We used Julio for our engagement photos, bridal and wedding photos.

Engagement: my "now" husband is horrible when it comes to taking photos..he just doesn't cooperate...However, Julio was able to make him feel comfortable and we had so many great shots, unreal...magazine quality!!

bridal: I did not get get my dress until the week before the wedding...he was able to work with me and get the shots...we were running out of daylight, so we were trying to rush...somehow, he was able to get so many amazing shots...It took me forever to decide which shot to use at the wedding...again, magazine quality!

Wedding: we were all running so late the day of the wedding and I had a HUGE wedding party (40 people)...he was able to still get some amazing shots...if you have a large wedding I would recommend being more organized than I was...give him a list of "must have" shots...then do the fun ones...I forgot to get many family shots, but that was my fault...

Highly recommend Julio, you won't regret it!!

Helo Photography was not only wonderful to work with, but they could not have done a better job at capturing the overall vibe of my wedding. Julio truly has a gift for finding shots that make you feel beautiful. He also very willingly working with my husband and I when we wanted our dog in some of the photos.

I have already recommended Julio to several of my friends and will continue to do so!

Our wedding was very conservative, but knowing that photos live on for generations, this was one area we were unwilling to cut corners. Julio and West were simply the best. They are creative, worked tirelessly in their pursuit of the best shot/angle and most important patient! In fact, once they got into the "zone", we had to stop and drag them back to the wedding party. Helo Photography is truly 5 star!

Julio is an excellent photographer. We've had so many compliments on the photos, he really did make us look great! And there were so many pictures, over 500! Each one terrific.

He had an assistant with a different camera taking shots along side him, so we ended up with a lot of variety in each moment captured. A nice touch that made a big difference!

One piece of advice if you choose Julio for your wedding: let him direct the shots. We pretty much let him do whatever he wanted and it turned out great. I'm sure if we stressed out over particular poses or backgrounds he wouldn't have felt as comfortable experimenting with the camera.
