It’s all about love and emotion. I love the romance, the relationships, the celebration, the intertwining of it all! Admittedly, I even cry at the weddings I shoot. How lucky I am to be a part of such an exciting and momentous day. Photography is my second career and I am often overwhelmed with the gift I have been given. It never feels like work to me. To be able to do what I love and get compensated for it is incomparable. Consequently, my passion for photography shows in my work. My commitment is to make your wedding photography exciting and fun so that you are not uncomfortable or awkward. This ultimately allows me present you with the most compelling images to “ohhh” and “ahhh” over. I am always striving to improve upon what I know and do as well as stay on top of current trends in the industry. This assures you the best out there.

What I will do on your wedding day is CAPTURE LIFE. To hold perfect those moments which are fleeting when you are getting ready, sharing a laugh, hugging your loved one, exchanging vows – moments of life that happen so fast you forget they existed. You take away one thing from your wedding day – these memories; and the images bring it all back to life. Invest wisely in this aspect of your day and let me help you create this day to remember forever.

I am sure there are many wonderful wedding photographers on Wedding Wire. But if I were you, I would not look any further than Julia MacInnis. After meeting for the initial consult we knew she was the perfect photographer for our wedding. It only takes a short conversation to see her professionalism and passion for her work. A few months before our wedding we booked an engagement session with Julia. After two postponements due to weather, we dragged her to Eastern Market on a 90 degree day in July. Julia took the temp in stride and overcame the not-so-ideal light to capture wonderful photos. We had a few requests for specific photos on our wedding day but having looked through a few of her previous wedding shoots we told her to go with her instincts for the rest. So glad we did! We just received our final photos and they are incredible! Our wedding day was a complete blur but we will always have the memories and the photos Julia captured for us. Thank you Julia!

Julia was great. She walked my husband and I through our engagement photos and they came out great. She even picked the location and it was adorable. When it came to the wedding, she was there but she didn't stick out like a sore thumb. She was great with making sure we got all the shots we requested. When my flower girls (2 1/2) was acting up she was able to get her to sit and smile for the group photo! The pictures we have seen so far are great and we can't wait to see the rest!

Julia did a FANTASTIC job photographing our wedding! We had only talked on the phone, and not met in person because we were planning our second wedding in a short time period. Nevertheless, she did a great job listening to what we wanted, and we felt like we had really good chemistry when we met in person on the big day. She was everywhere without being intrusive, she made everyone smile and feel natural with ease, she captured the spirit of the day and just took wonderful pictures everywhere, of everyone! She took a ton of pictures of my daughters and their friends doing their own things, and they are some of my favorite pictures. I don't know Julia well, but she is just a radiant person who takes so much pleasure in her work. I would very very happily recommend Julia to anyone who has a wedding coming up. I am certain we will find other opportunities to take advantage of Julia's great photography in the years to come!

Julia was great. My husband and I live overseas and got married 'back home' and Julia was flexible and responsive on email and phone calls, albums too. She understood the style and feel of our wedding immediately. Julia is also a great person. I highly recommend Julia's services.

Julia was amazing all the way through!

When we went to sit down and chat with her, we met in her home which was very professionally kept and laid out, a feat given she has kids!

She kept everything in line at the wedding itself and even pulled her camera back out while packing up to make sure to capture a very special moment for us.

The pictures came and we were very impressed with the quality. Through and through we were blown away by everything she had to offer. I'd use her again for other stuff too!

Julia was everywhere on our wedding day. She captured images of our wedding that I didn't think anyone would think to get or be fast enough to snap. The day after our wedding she put four pictures up on facebook as a quick sneak peak. They were perfection. Within a few weeks, she put up a slideshow on her website and also posted it to facebook so my friends and family could see. Shortly after that, we received the whole gallery.

I was very pleased with the quality, the time frame in which she did her work, and that she shared it on facebook. Julia is the kind of photographer that you keep in touch with, you send Christmas cards to and you use every time you have an important family portrait you want to take in the future.

I knew she would be fantastic but the images she captured were more than I could have hoped for.

Julia was great to work with and got some amazing pictures of our big day. :) I thought her prices were reasonable for the products we got (the DVD case and labels are beautiful and keepsake we will always cherish). She knew just the right lighting and angles to get awesome pictures of our wedding day. I'd recommend her for any wedding. :) She also did our engagement photos-- they turned out amazing and we're actually getting one of them blown up and printed on canvas.

Julia was amazing. Not only was her work beautiful, she managed to coordinate photos of a HUGE wedding party, was adaptable when things didn't go as scheduled before the ceremony (which is more than I could say about my reaction) and captured photos of our family and friends during perfect/special moments that my Husband and I would have otherwise not seen. For example, there is a photo of my Mom looking at my Dad after he sat down after giving me away and it's precious! That look happened in a split second, and she captured it, along with many more just like that. The thing that really sets Julia apart is her personality. She is friendly, funny, confident, and extremely professional and made us feel comfortable. She left an impression on everyone; family, friends, Country Club employees, etc. and that says a lot!
