Welcome to Julie Dreelins Beach Productions, the Premier Outer Banks Wedding, Family Photography and Videography Company.
About Julie Dreelin

I landed in this spot for a reason.  Feeling so utterly happy as I wake each morning watching the sunrise from my bed, leaking in through the wood shutters on my little family, the lights that are my life.

Light leads the way of my most heartfelt photos and videos, expressions of my life, my friends lives, my clients lives.  From my heart to the lens to tell a story. Smile. Raw. Honest. Blossoming.  To my higher source, to God, thank you for life, and this amazingly lovely job that you have given me, I’m living life in love. -Julie

A Day in the Life of, Documentary Vacation Sessions

2 hours. 6 hours. 12 hours. We engage in your event or gathering for a longer period of time than a traditional portrait session, and in a more natural documentary setting.  We capture the real essence of your relationships, friends and family through an afternoon on the beach, a special event, horse touring, paddleboarding, or that family fishing trip you wanted to remember forever.  We have done this type of shoot not only on the OBX, but also New Zealand, to Indonesia, to Tahiti.
