This is where the magic happens. This is where your love story becomes the moments you look at for the rest of your lives. So pop the champagne, sit back, relax, and fall in love with the journey your love is about to go on.
Although a lot of people first inquire via social media, all inquiries need to go through my website. Messages can easily get lost in the cracks, so my website keeps them all organized and guarantees I'll get back to you in less than 48 hours!
We’ll chat about your vision, your progress in the planning process, and just get to know each other a bit. I’ll also give you the rundown of what it’s like to work with me + answer any initial questions you might have! I know it can feel awkward to hop on a video call with a total stranger, but by the end of this call, we'll be laughing + dreaming about your big day TOGETHER.
All I require to hold your date is a signed contract plus the nonrefundable retainer. There's also a fun questionnaire I'll send over one month prior to the day because I'm so pumped to get to know you and dive into how I can best tell your story. This is when we can start dreaming of your engagement photos or your bridals that come complimentary with most packages.
For weddings, all I ask from you before the Big Day is: a family shot list for portraits, your important details (rings, vow books, shoes, etc.) in one box or bag so it's easy for me to collect those on the day of, and any inspiration or dream imagery you have thought of throughout your planning process!
Wether it's your wedding, elopement, or couples session with your pup, this is an exciting day! We will explore and have fun for the entire time, capturing all the special moments.
Congratulations, you made it!
Take some time to breathe - you did it, and now you can enjoy the after. Don't worry, you'll have some sneaks in your inbox within 48 hours of saying I Do, and your gallery will be lovingly edited, and delivered as soon as possible. Turnaround times can vary based on season and session.
Weddings - 4-6 weeks
Sessions - 2-3 weeks
Words cannot describe how honored I am to possibly be a part of your love story. I can’t wait to get to know you, to capture your Texas or Destination wedding day, and to join you on the reception dance floor!
There’s so much to think about between now and then, wether you're planning to elope to Yosemite, or have a big white wedding in Austin, TX, and I’m sure your heads are already spinning - making decisions about things you didn’t even realize existed.
So to make it a little easier, I’ve created a wedding guide to help you through the whole process! All brides who inquire will receive this document to hopefully help them wrap their heads around slipping into those white heels, or lacing up the hiking boots..
Collect the following items in a box or bag so I can capture all your perfect details quickly: rings, shoes, heirlooms, vow books, etc.
Want to stick to tradition? This could also be between the Father of the Bride, Your pups, Bridesmaids, or anyone close to you!
This is a huge plus when a second shooter is there for the first half of the day! We can divide and conquer and have more time to breathe + relax!
Enjoy every moment! This is the best day of your life!
Make sure you give me a shot list of specific photos you'd like so we can get through fast and have more time for YOU!
Eat before everyone else and have a ball! I can't wait to join you on the dance floor, babe!
Every venue is unique in if they allow sparklers for exits - we will have tons of options once we know what they allow! Think: bubbles, glow sticks, etc.
Oh my goodness where to start. Julia Davis is just fabulous. I am a photographer myself so choosing someone to photograph our wedding was a super difficult task. I wanted someone who was going to make me feel beautiful and confident, while capturing my Fiancé and I's love for each other, and also just how unique and fun we are. Ya'll..... Julia understood the assignment. I could cry at how happy I am with the outcome. I've never been more sure in my life that choosing Julia was the best decision I could have ever made for my big day!!! She made me feel so cool, was my biggest hype woman, and just the best person to be around! I am extremely thankful that I found her, you will not regret it, book her now!
We can’t say enough good things about Julia! Our engagement and wedding pictures were everything we could have dreamt of and more. Julia was so easy and fun to work with, and I can wait to work with her again! My mother-in-law said it perfectly - “I’ve never seen a group of photos that made me feel like I was actually reliving the day, and these do just that.”
Julia shot my wedding, and I can’t even begin to explain how amazing she was. She was my best hype girl and made me feel so confident. I am obsessed and can’t stop refreshing for more photos. She’s amazing, and if you’re thinking of hiring her, DO IT. Best decision ever.
She was so attentive, and it’s like she knew exactly what I had visioned for my wedding. She was also extremely helpful and sweet. She had so much to offer me, in wedding planning and made sure to keep in contact months prior.
It can be nerve-racking to decide what to wear for your photos when you aren't in a wedding dress! I always suggest neutrals, solid colors, and something that YOU FEEL BEAUTIFUL IN. Why neutrals + solids? Bright colors and patterns can actually reflect light up onto your face, and no one wants a zebra print neon pink face for your special photos!
Just like how world class chefs do not serve raw chicken, to protect artistic integrity, I do not give out the RAW images. Plus, the file type of RAW images is not compatible with most software, and it's something I have to go in during editing to change for you!
Wow thank you, yes I do! Although I in no way expect gratuities, if you believe I have gone above and beyond your expectations for your experience, it is such a compliment that you'd want to send them. My personal venmo is @thejuliadavis.
All images from your wedding are delivered within 6 weeks to an online gallery. From there you'll have full printing rights for personal use, in web-quality and high resolution file size! The gallery service I use also can create slideshows, and physical prints as well.
+ you offer complimentary a engagement session or bridals with some packages, can we get a discount on our wedding if we don't want those opportunities?
The complimentary engagement session or bridal portraits is a great chance for you and I to become besties before your Big Day. Since they are promotional items, they are non-refundable and the price is not something that can be refunded if those are not needed.
The online gallery you will be delivered actually has a tested and true print shop! Inside there you can pick from canvases, metal prints, sized prints to be framed, and even wedding albums. The quality is unmatched, and I would love to help you create your album if that is something you're interested in! It's actually listed as an option Add On on the Investment page!
