I landed in this spot for a reason. Feeling so utterly happy as I wake each morning watching the Outer Banks 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

I love watching people live their dreams; whatever they may be. I’m a big advocate for faith leaping. For leaving the mediocre and boring life behind. For risking all you’ve got to live the life you were meant to live. Almost 18 years later looking back at all that I’ve accomplished, all the people I’ve met and fallen in love with, all of the weddings I’ve had the honor of photographing, it is safe to say that I have been living my dreams. I have started to share my knowledge and adventures with people, both technically and photographically. Subscribe to our newsletter to be a part of my next workshop. I will not disappoint!
