    Relaxed and Fun!

    Julia was a joy to have around on our wedding day. We are a low key couple who dread photos but Julia put us at ease and we didn't even know she got a lot of cool photos until we saw them later! When plans had to change last minute - crash on the one road to Whistler the day before meant we missed our official wedding paperwork ceremony so had to squeeze it in on the day! - she was super flexible and even took photos of the added paperwork too which turned out to be a bonus despite the stress. We also had dogs and kids in our small group and she got fantastic photos of both! Nothing can replace capturing the once in a lifetime moments of your wedding day and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend Julia, and hope to work with her again for future life milestones!

    I can't say enough about what a great and professional photographer Julia is. I called her just a few days before my daughter's baptism and she kindly rearranged her schedule to make it work. Julia really listened to what I wanted and was able to take candid shots and also beautiful group photos (she was willing to do silly faces to make sure that even the kids were smiling). Besides being so talented, she also has great people skills and was able to manage our big, loud family with ease. Really recommend her if you want to get great photos and have a good time not worrying about a thing!

    Julia was our photographer for both our engagement photos and our wedding. She was absolutely incredible! Not only did she provide us with amazing photos, she was extremely flexible and upfront about what she planned to do and got our input on what type of photos we would like (romantic vs playful, etc) and ensured we would be pleased with the outcome. She spent a lot of time making us feel comfortable and to get on the same page with us so there would be no surprises. At the wedding she had many different ideas for the wedding party photos, all of which were great, but asked us if there were other types we wanted, etc to ensure we were getting everything we could to cherish that day. Julia was extremely flexible and stayed later into the night to capture moments she wanted to get. Overall it was great working with her. She is very easy to talk to, has a presence that makes you very comfortable and at ease (rather than awkward and shy in photos) and you could tell she has such a passion for photography. You can trust Julia to capture your special memories. I would use Julia again for any special event in my life.

    “We found Julia on short notice to photograph our intimate impromptu wedding. She was friendly, helpful and professional, and beautifully captured our wedding day with her fun and unique style! Julia has a relaxed and warm demeanor that allowed us (the nervous bride and groom) to feel comfortable and have fun being photographed. She went above and beyond coming early and staying late, made sure all the guests were included in the photos, and captured all of the important sentimental moments with a creative eye. She also took advantage of a stunning afternoon sunset for an intimate and romantic photo shoot that resulted in some of our favorite photos!

    Our special day wouldn’t have been the same without Julia’s photography. The gorgeous photo album that resulted will forever allow us to look back on our wedding day that highlights all the fun we had, filled with love, laughter, family and friends. Thank you Julia!”

    Amazing Job Photographing our Wedding Day

    We had Julia and her husband Craig on our wedding day and they were amazing. We loved her enthusiasm for getting unique shots, and commitment to the finished product. They were every where we needed them to be to capture the best shots, but never in the way. Communication with Julia before, during, and after was fantastic and we are very happy with the finished product. Would definitely recommend Julia for any photography gig.

    Ginger Photography's reply:

    Thank you Mark so much! I loved working with you too as you were both full of ideas and were always so enthusiastic. Craig and I had a wonderful time working with you and Holly! :D

    Amazing experience

    I started looking for a Photographer on Wedding wire, found Ginger Photography with great reviews and photos that I loved. My husband contacted Julia and she listened to what we wanted and worked to make a package that was exactly what we were looking for. We did an engagement shoot, we both hate photos and joked that we had 3 pictures of us together. Julia took charge and made us comfortable right away. She made suggestions and asked us if there was anything we wanted. Craig was a second shooter and they worked together so well. We had a lot of laughs and received our engagement photos very fast.

    On our wedding day my husband likes to joke that Julia was the perfect amount of bossy for a photographer. We have hundreds of pictures that I don’t know how she even got, they were never in the way, they were engaging with our guests and were always thinking of a great new photo idea.

    I cannot day enough about Julia and Craig, they took hundreds and hundreds of amazing photos and were worth every penny!!!

    Ginger Photography's reply:

    Wow, Sheryl thank you so much. I am so happy to hear you were extremely pleased with the photos. We loved working with you both as well and had a lot of fun at the engagement and your wedding and thank you so much for trusting us with everything for your big day. Happy we got you lots of great photos to remember the day. Stay in touch :)

    Very friendly and easy to work with.

    We were very comfortable having our pictures taken and she also took many group pictures of friends and families that were at our wedding. She also took lots of candid shots of us and the guests.

    Our Wedding

    Julia helped make our wedding memorable, and provided excellent quality pictures that we'll cherish forever! She was very responsive to our requests and accommodated us in every way. We didn't do any engagement photos but Julia was still able to work with us and take great pictures on our wedding day. She was very professional throughout the process, including before and after the wedding, and was a pleasure to work with. We absolutely recommend Julia for your photography needs, you won't be disappointed!

    Ginger Photography's reply:

    Thank you Andrew for the wonderful review. I really enjoyed working with both of you and happy we had the time to capture lots of beautiful shots.

    We absolutely loved that we chose Julia to be our photographer for our special day! Her services were very affordable and professional and we received both our engagement and wedding photos in a very timely manner. She is also an extremely friendly and likeable person, with a cheerful and easy going personality. We always felt at complete ease around her. I would without a doubt recommend her to my friends and family for their special events!
