I'M JULIA-

I'm a northern girl who fell in love with the south! You can often find me consuming too much iced coffee, tending to all my pets and plants, and re-watching Friends for the 38th time!

Hey! 

My Story...

I'm from Westchester NY in a small town about 45 minutes north of the city. I loved where I grew up, I had farms, apple orchards, that small town feel, but a quick train ride and I was stepping out of Grand Central into midtown Manhattan. I come from a large, loud, and loving Italian family

I spent my four years of high school AND college perusing live broadcasting. For the last 8 years I swore I would spend the rest of my life working in television. I interned with WECT, was the VP & Studio Director for our on campus broadcasting organization - TealTV, produced/directed shows in many of my classes.. I did it ALL! 

And then...

This crazy thing called COVID-19 happened in my last semester.

School shut down, restaurants, stores, everything closed their doors. No one knew what was going on. It was pure chaos. I spent MONTHS applying to hundreds of jobs (I'm not lying!). I had a stacked resume, cum-laude, I knew how to interview well, I had a bubbly personality. No one was hiring, and if they were they wanted tons of experience.

 

I was lost, confused, frustrated... I had NO idea what I wanted to do.

I got a job waitressing, and started to film real-estate videos for extra cash. Then I filmed a wedding and let me just say - they were not the only ones who found love that day. 

I found my passion, my WHY. I found something to get me out of bed in the morning. I found what I LOVE to do. I am a firm believer that everything happens for a reason. This crazy year made me do something I could have NEVER imagined. I started my own business.

 

It has been a crazy journey, but I am SO happy with what I do. I love all my clients. I love hearting their stories, learning all about them, but most importantly seeing their faces light up when they get their wedding video or photo session gallery. I love seeing my seniors realize how amazing and beautiful they are. Couples stepping out of their shell and getting all mushy with each other in front of me. Families letting me be apart of their crazy lives for a few hours. Those cute candid shots... I LOVE IT ALL! I am so happy to call Photography & Videography my career now.

HOT OR COLD?

Bring me my boots and sweaters! I know I moved down south, but I am a northerner at heart and I love fall/winter. Don't get me wrong I live at the beach, I love it too, but you can never go wrong with a cute pair of boots.

More About Me...

I'm a northern girl turned southern! Originally from Westchester, NY, I fell in love with the south and the beach while attending UNCW. I decided to stay after graduating so now you can always find me on Wrightsville Beach with my iced coffee!
