Purely out of luck, we booked Julia for a last minute outdoor rainy day engagement / civil ceremony shoot. Julia was so friendly to work with and very quick to respond to any question we had. She also agreed to meet with us a week before the event to talk about ideas and just to get to know us better. Julia paid a lot of attention to what we sent her beforehand and did some amazing shots that are inspired by the pictures we sent yet exceeding the original! It was a rainy day, but we embraced it and got some really interesting shots playing with the reflection of the water, light, forest and beach. Julia was very excited and passionate about getting the pictures we wanted, even when she was soaked up in rain. Julia is also very good at taking candid shots that just looks natural and like the real you. She also gives you all of the photos taken on the day and was super quick with photo processing. We were in a rush to get the photos for an appointment. Julia stayed up until 4am to get our photos processed only a week after she gave birth to her newborn baby girl. Photo ninja! We are planning to do another shoot with her when the sun comes out at a special location. I would recommend Julia to anyone who wants an awesome photographer!

I think she is one of, if not, top 3 photographers in the city (it was for a wedding). She was.. Amazing. All the photos we got from her are just what we wanted. Words cannot describe how my wife and I feel about her work. Truly, truly professional, her photos reflect the skills/know-how. She is far beyond good.
Katie and Rob
Julia was a pleasure to deal with while planning and during our wedding. Her experience and artistic eye made the process easy, comfortable and the results were better then we could have ever hoped. We would recommend Julia to anyone looking for a very talented photographer that provides value, a collaborative environment, and great service.

I would 1000% recommend ginger photography! The photos are so beautiful and Julia is so nice. All of the guests were talking about how nice she was! There is not a single photo I dislike. It was very easy to get in touch with her and she was able to travel to Abbotsford. She knew exactly the type of photos and editing style that would go well with the venue. Do not hesitate to book with her as her dates fill up fast!
Bobbie and Christian
We loved working with Julia on our wedding day. She was absolutely amazing! She is professional, easy to work with, creative, fun, and make the whole process very comfortable. Julia brought such great energy, direction, creativity and professionalism in helping us capture special moments from our wedding day. She accommodated any ideas we had and incorporated them into our photos. Julia was also very flexible when we rearranged the location for our wedding photos last minute. You won't find a harder working photographer who will go the extra mile to get that perfect shot and edit your pictures in record time. The photos she took will help us re-live the amazing memories we have for many years to come. Julia, thanks for your beautiful work - we could not be more pleased with the results. Bobbie and I are sincerely grateful for your service and wish you a lot of success in the future. We would highly recommend Julia to absolutely anyone who is looking for their memories to be captured in the most creative and beautiful way!! Thanks again for everything.
Brent and Nissa
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.

If I could describe Julia and her services in two words and a hyphen it would be heaven-sent. My husband and I had gotten engaged in late October and decided we wanted to marry by December. If only everyone can imagine the stress I was going through on top of work, going to school full-time and now having to plan a wedding just short of 2 months! I came across Julia's work and portfolio online a couple weeks before the wedding and knew that I had found my photographer. Her work showed such diverse range and beautiful shots. My first impressions of her when we met was that she was so genuinely warm-hearted and nice. She had a really light and young spirit that I could relate to. I knew then and there, she was perfect for the most special day of our lives. Julia spent the whole day capturing moments left, right and centre. I remember thinking it was so inspiring to see someone so dedicated to her work. When my family, closest friends, Danilo and I saw the images for the first time, we were all so moved by the stunning pictures. I was on cloud 9 on my wedding day, swiftly floating through the day as it was still difficult to believe I was marrying the man of my dreams. Julia captured moments that already had felt like faint memories that will now last forever. I will forever be grateful and cannot wait until the day we show these wonderful pictures to our children, grandchildren, and hopefully great-grandchildren!
Dawn and James
Wow! Julia was amazing in all aspects. Her photos "look so magical". She showed up early and the guests really liked her. One guest said that "her photos are really nice... especially the lighting". She was everything we could have asked for and more. She was professional, courteous and kind. She worked hard and got our photos back to us earlier than ever imagined. Great Job Julia!
Becky and Michael
We had our engagement photos taken by Julia and we are more than pleased with the outcome. Not only did Julia make the photo session fun and relaxed, the photos came out amazing! We struggled to find photos we did not like, they were all so beautiful! At first we were a little nervous about the session, but after speaking with Julia at the start, we knew we were in good hands. She was flexibly, fun and professional all at the same time. We would absolutely recommend Julia to anyone looking to have professional photos done! Thank you Julia!!
Marilyn and Brandon
Planning a wedding without a wedding planner and a budget can be exhausting but dealing with Julia was the best decision we ever made. She walked us through the entire process effortlessly-no hidden fees, flexibility and most importantly really listened to what we wished to have captured on our special day. We were extremely pleased with her approach, direction, vision and personal touch; working with her on our engagement shoot really prepared us for the big day; I suggest everyone take the opportunity and enjoy the adventure! We were quite smitten; so many beautiful pictures including gorgeous editorial pieces. By hiring Julia, not only do you receive a professional, you've just earned a team player who's only objective is to capture memories that you will cherish forever.
Deanna and Andrei
Deanna: Julia is an incredible photographer and an all around genuinely nice person. She was a delight to work with. Her photos speak for themselves. She captures all of those special moments and worked with us to get some incredible (and FUN!) photos. She had to work with a large group of family for phtos in between the ceremony and reception and did it wonderfully. She was able to really understand what we wanted and the pictures were even better than I could have ever dreamed. Julia was professional and timely - she sent us some sneak peeks right away to put our minds at ease, and the rest of the pictures followed shortly after (much faster than I anticipated). She worked with us at every step and was there for me to bounce photo ideas off of and she was really open to trying anything. I would, and have, recommended her to my sister, brother, sister in-law and pretty much any one I know who is engaged! I honestly can't say enough about her. She is an amazing person, and her work is just as amazing as she is! Andrei: The services provided by the team were beyond exceptional. They came early, stayed late, took pictures of everyone and everything and they did it all with a smile. I will recommend them to everyone I know (and I have to both my brother and my second sister-in-law).
Mara and Adrian
Julia put so much effort from the beginning until the last moment of providing us with breathtaking photos and a slideshow, tailored to us. She was so quick in responding to changes we wanted in the slideshow.
Breana and Steve
Emma: Julia helped the company I work for solve a wedding shoot (that happened on a cruise ship) where none of the images captured came out due to a corrupt SD card....she was amazing. Julia took our problem and totally solved it by re-shooting the wedding. She really is amazing and the bride totally forgave us because of the experience she had working with her. I cannot recommend Julia highly enough- trust her with your event- she will exceed your expectations.
Katia and Adam
Julia and her team were amazing! I couldn't have dreamed for better wedding pictures! They were so much fun , down to earth, professional and captured all those beautiful candid moments without you even realizing they were taking a photo. You can stop looking for a photographer now, they are the best! Can't speak highly enough of them!?
Albert and Maria Flor
I just wanted to get a quick note off to you to say how very pleased I am with the photos and slideshow/video. We just LOVE it! You did a super job on it! I've shown it to my family and friends and they all say how happy everyone looks! You have done an excellent job with the photographs and really captured our wedding day. Thank you SO much!!!

Your surely surpassed our expectations. You have captured every smile and every detailed. It’s a priceless candid pictures and very memorable one.

Elyse and Shaun
Sherrilyn: Julia and the team took the most breathtaking photos of our daughters wedding day which was held at the Kirkland house in Ladner B.C. They took great photos using the natural beauty of the outdoors. They also took many candid shots which are so priceless. They captured all the special moments. And they included everyone. Family, friends, and the children. The results surpassed our expectations. We will definitely go to them again!
Natalia and Pavel
Julia is the best because:
Her portfolio looks amazing and we’ve got lots of candid moments! Everyone looks so beautiful!
Easy to communicate. Julia responded very quickly to all our emails.
Reasonable priced to compare with others.
In a very short time we got to see our pictures, that is a big bonus!!!
Besides, I (Natalia) had another portrait photoshoot with Julia. She supported my ideas and gave me some tips how to pose, where to look, etc. I love those photos!
I highly recommend Julia and I am hoping Julia will photograph us over and over again! Thank you so much!

Julia is a very friendly and an amazing photographer. I would recommend her as your first choice for a destination wedding. She was hard working, punctual and very creative. Julia worked long hours to edit our destination wedding pictures. All our guests where very happy with her work and with her friendliness. We have amazing pictures to remind us of our wedding for ever. Julia took a lot of beautiful pictures and had great suggestions of different actions and positions for our pictures. I am 100% satisfied with Julia’s photography work. I was also very pleased with her gift that came with our pictures as a final touch.
Nadine and Reto
"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 demeanour 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 favourite 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!"
Steve and Laura
We found Julia on a Miss604 post (we think) when we just happened to be looking for a wedding photographer. A few emails and reviewing of portfolios and we felt very comfortable taking things to the next step. Upon Julia's advice we did an engagement shoot first to help us loosen up, and she also shot our wedding (we aren't super comfortable in front of a camera). The value of the service and quality of the shots could not have pleased us more. Great moments were captured and several treatment options of the photos were presented on a classy flash drive with a neat box with one of the more artistic photos on it. Judge for yourself looking at her portfolio online, but what you can't tell there is how well Julia works with the guests. Many people commented on how pleasant she was and she put everyone at ease which appears to have resulted in relaxed looking natural shots. Also, she is somewhat of a ninja,... able to get into tight spots to get the shot unobtrusively. We were a bit surprised in fact that we didn't notice her there to take some key shots until seeing the evidence afterwards! For everything we received, we felt the price was more than competitive (but I bet that won't last for long!), and she really listened to what we asked for when it came to wanting more candid shots over being posed (for example).
David and Khrissie
Julia is definitely an exceptional photographer! She was recommended by our friends who also had her as their engagement/wedding photographer. Right when we met her, she had a lovely personality that definitely made a great impression on us. On our wedding day, she was prompt, professional, had amazing ideas, had excellent direction, and just awesome overall! She also went beyond her services (had to calm the bride a couple times). You can really see/feel her passion for photography. We are very satisfied clients who highly recommend her! Thanks, Julia and keep up your superb work!
Nansy and John
From my initial contact with Julia, she was extremely friendly, professional and very easy to deal with. We highly recommend her for any occasion! Julia is an amazing photographer. We got so many compliments from our guests to how fun, energetic and lively she was. To start off, our engagement shots were so much fun! She worked her magic and made both of us feel super comfortable (and not awkward) in front of the camera. I was nervous my fiancé would be uncomfortable posing, but within 10 minutes, he was laughing, posing and doing all random fun shots- which he enjoyed! We both walked away feeling good about our decision with Julia. At our wedding, she did a phenomenal job! She was full of energy throughout the entire day. I don’t think I saw her stand still for a minute; it’s very clear she loves what she does and wanted to capture every detail for us. Another reason I highly recommend Julia is because of how she has proven to deal with unplanned events that happen. She really helped us out when our cinematographer cancelled due to a medical emergency. This was literally two weeks before the wedding and she stepped up and reached out to a number of vendors and filtered the ones that she thought best suited our vision. We ended up going with one of her recommendations and they were so good! Again- she’s amazing!! I would hire her again for any professional photography we may need 😊
