We LOVE photographing weddings; they are life's best moments and it's an honor that you'd consider us to be part of your special day.

The Hulse's are amazing photographers and our pictures couldn't have come out better. We were so happy with them. They are great to have on your wedding day and are very flexible and make it work. When we had a little extra time here and there they would take shots that ended up being some of our favorites. They also went with the flow and got us some great beach shots when the weather wouldn't allow for the great sunset shots we were hoping for. If I had to do it all over again I would definitely have them do all of our pictures and recommend them to anyone who wants professional and beautiful pictures.

If you want bridal photos that should be on the cover of a bridal magazine this is who you want to go with! I am honestly blown away at how beautiful and how stylish they made me and my groom look! Besides having an amazing eye for framing and lighting this is a fun husband and wife team. Julie always makes sure she is contact with you, she even emailed me a outline for the day of before I got around to it. I never had to worry about anything with them. I had Jason shoot our engagement photos, which I highly recommend, he made me feel so comfortable, sexy, and all around beautiful for the camera. He helped to encourage me during the shooting so I was able to give him better looks and poses. For me that is huge because if you aren't having fun while you are doing it then you don't get as great of photos, and Jason makes sure it is a fun experience. The day of the wedding is so hectic it helps to have experienced photographers like this to move you along and make sure you get all the photos you dream of. They were professional when dealing with the high tension that came up on the day of with parents and the bridal party. Most of all they made us feel like they loved being at our wedding and apart of our experience which made the day so amazing. They worked around my videographer which cannot be easy on such a crazy day. I cannot thank them enough! I would highly recommend this amazing team!

Justin and Julie at Hulse Photography are incredible and we absolutely loved working with them through our wedding journey. Justin photographed our wedding (along with Mike, who was awesome) and he did an amazing job. He captured the emotion and the love in all our pictures from first look, to bridal party fun, to parents emotions during the ceremony and on. Justin is the perfect mix of fun and professional and was so wonderful to work with. He listened to what we wanted from a picture side and he truly delivered above and beyond what we requested! Our pictures were up on their online gallery in a very timely fashion and we received our CD of pictures quickly after that.

We got married November 16, 2013 at 4 pm. We were a little nervous about the lighting, but Justin assured us that daylight or night time he would be able to photograph the best photos. He did, he delivered beyond our dreams! The pictures were breathtaking!!

We can't wait to see our wedding album and know it's going to blow us away! I would recommend Hulse photography to all my friends because they are SO good at what they do and create the highest quality work!

Justin & Julie Hulse are AWESOME!! We met with Julie initially and decided to go with Hulse for a couple of reasons...they were professional, had an impressive website/gallery, they were both so easy to talk to, and they were very familiar with our venue, South Coast Winery. We met Justin at our engagement shoot a couple of months prior to our wedding and we had a blast with him!! We highly recommend an engagement shoot so you get a feel for what will take place the day of the wedding and you're already familiar with the photographer and their style.
Something to definitely consider when it comes to photographers...you get what you pay for so be sure not to skimp on that particular part of your wedding budget. We saw a few that were cheaper and a couple that were more expensive and after a couple of discussions with Julie we just knew they were a perfect fit for what we wanted. I'm by no means a "bridezilla" but I do have very high expectations and they exceeded them all.

I cannot say enough positive things about Hulse Photo! It's a husband and wife team and they are truly awesome. Justin did our engagement photos and he did a great job at making my husband and I feel at ease, especially since neither of us are fans of being photographed. Julie seems to do a lot of the business end responsibilities and she responds promptly to emails. Both Julie and Justin were there for our wedding and both of them are not only professional, but they make you feel comfortable with being the center of attention during the photos. Unless you are doing the group/individual photos, you don't even realize they're there (they're total ninjas with the cameras). At first, we were hesitant on spending a lot of money on a photographer but we are so happy that we did. More importantly, they are worth every single penny! I HIGHLY recommend them and am confident that you will not regret your decision of choosing them to help capture the moments of your big day.

I had no issues on the wedding day, they were awesome, and even helped to calm the situation with my wedding planner who was stressing out about time.

After the wedding they were very unprofessional in regard to some 8x10 photo's that were not fully edited, but per the contract should have been. I corresponded with Julie Hulse, who responded that "I made her help cry" because I said that I was dissapointed in the photo's lack of editing" I paid around $4,000 for their services, and expected more from them. Also, keep in mind, none of the photos you receive on your finished CD will be edited, this is an extra charge of $60/hour! I did it myself with photoshop. :)

I am a little late in my review but still frustrated every time I look at my wedding pictures that I decided to come on here and post my review. I got married in 2012 and I still don't have one good picture of my husband and I looking at the camera. We have a great kissing photo and thats it. Our family pictures are terrible as we are all facing the sun and squinting so at least one out of the 5 of us is blinking. It wasn't a huge family, just the 5 of us! We should be able to trust the photographer to tell us what to do, but unfortunately, we should have spoken up and asked to have a different setting where we are not facing the sun.

When we signed the contract, I assumed that I was going to get both Julie and Justin, but come the wedding day, it was just Julie and an assistant who was a beginner it seems as there are several bad shots she took. I keep reading reviews where justin climbed trees to get great shots, etc, but unfortunately we didn't get that because they double booked and assigned justin to another wedding as they think the money is more important that assigning both Justin and Julie to the same wedding. It is not fair that some weddings get to have Justin shoot all creative and others pay the same price to get nothing great at all...

If you book with them, double check to see who you will get on your wedding day because what you see on the website is not what you may get on the most important day of your life. I would not use them again as I paid over 5000 and got picture worth 1000. Lesson learned!!! :(

I really can’t describe how incredible, amazing, talented, artful, professional and kind Justin and Julie at Hulse Photography are!!! Our wedding photos look like they came straight off of a Fairytale Wedding Film Set!! The shots Justin got were absolutely incredible in every way, breathtaking, simply remarkable!!!! We gave an extra special thank you to Justin for going the extra mile in every way and hitting HIGH above the mark on all our special "pose" requests. Thank you a million times to Justin and Julie both for everything you have done for us and giving us these magical memories. I told my husband, "I barely ever saw Justin, he was never in the way, how did he get all these pictures?" and he said, "He was in the bushes and hanging from trees!" I laughed because I should have known that's where Justin would be! He’s a photography genius, the passion he has for his work shines through in all the photos and everything you could want in a wedding photographer!!

I found Hulse Photography 3 years before our wedding, I was just browsing on a website and was enamored by the pictures of the site, so I went to the copyright and saw Hulse Photo. I immediately searched the internet for their website and stocked their website and blog drooling over Justin’s style of pictures for the next 2 years!! I couldn’t wait to book him for our wedding (that wasn’t even planned yet but I knew was in my near future). They are the best in the business!!! 2 years after I found them on the internet I was engaged and called to book them for our wedding before I even had the venue booking confirmed. Julie was so flexible with the photo packages and meeting our budget, but still giving us the maximum for our money. She is the sweetest woman on the planet and really understands a bride’s vision!! The first time we spoke we spent a couple of hours just chatting on the phone about weddings and girl stuff as if we had been friends for years. She suggested we do engagement pictures as a trial run for our wedding day and WOW am I thrilled we did!! Not only did we have the most amazing and fun day with Justin prancing around Down Town Temecula like celebrities, but we had tons of INCREDIBLE pictures as a happy couple to show to our family and friends, and Justin taught us how to pose and got us both to feel relaxed and natural in front of the camera!! It was the best suggestion Julie could have made and it was VERY affordable too! As a special added bonus Julie sent us our photo disc in the most beautiful hard cover bound DVD case I have ever seen with an incredible metallic picture of us on the front! When I saw it in the mail I was floored, I had never seen anything like that before!!

8 months later when it came time for our wedding I spoke to Justin several times to tell him all my creative photo ideas and he reassured me that he would make sure he got all of those important shots. He also gave me great advice coming from a 3rd party’s point of view which really helped me to stay calm and enjoy my wedding day. I can’t thank him enough just for reminding me months in advance to enjoy the entire day and to just tell yourself whatever happens, happens!! It was because of that advice that I was cool as a cucumber all day and really couldn’t stop smiling!!! Nothing went wrong in my mind, the day was perfect!!! When we returned from our honeymoon the online gallery was waiting for us and all I can say is WOW!!! The pictures turned out AMAZING!!! What a great way to for us to spend our first jet lagged day home! We really can't thank them enough for all the hard work and effort that went into our pictures, and how stunning they turned out!

We LOVED working with Justin and Julie Hulse!!! We did both an engagement session with them as well as our wedding photos themselves - everything turned out beautifully, even better than we'd expected. We love Justin's photo-journalistic style. He captures emotions so beautifully - even the posed photos were fun with Justin! And, Julie is such a joy to work with - so easy-going and fun, we could have spent hours on the phone together!! Their costs are very reasonable and competitive - I'd definitely recommend them!!

If you're looking for a great photographer, Hulse is it!! They are a husband and wife team- very friendly, you'll feel like you've known them for years when you first meet them.
Justin the photographer is very talented!! He will give you what you want- he's willing to collaborate on any idea you may have- and he knows the latest trends in photography. He's creative and forward thinking. He likes his shots to capture real soul and personality- not just plastic poses.
His wife Julie, is also fabulous! She does the business end. She will get back to you quickly with whatever concerns or questions you have. For example, we forgot about choosing our engagement photos and it was two weeks till our wedding. We really wanted a book with photos for our guests to sign. Julie got us our beautiful book within the week. We were amazed.
Justin and Julie are very respected in the wedding community in Temecula, Ca. Anyone you hire to work your wedding will be on their best behavior if they know Hulse will be there. They are not cheap, but you WILL get above and beyond what you hoped for. So in that case, the experience becomes priceless!! We are so happy we chose Hulse!
