browse just a few of julie’s photos and i bet you’ll be struck by how they represents her subjects in all of their whimsy, honesty, beauty, and humanity. julie herself is so much of all those things. brimming with care and generosity, she makes you feel comfortable no matter how camera shy you (like me) might be. having a photo shoot with julie is like being reunited with a long-lost friend–-you didn’t really expect it to happen, and then there you are, feeling like you really know each other, or, at least, like julie knows something vital about you. and then, she captures it. for engagements, weddings, and events, julie michelle is the photographer you’re looking for. view julie michelle’s wedding photography here. see poetry art & gifts made in collaboration with julie michelle here.

personalized poem portraits make great gifts as well as personal and one-of-a-kind decor for your wedding or event.
