Julia Healey Photography

Testimonials

Julia is a phenomenal photographer, my husband and I met her five years ago when she was photographing a wedding and we knew then that she would be our photographer when we got married. Julia is incredibly friendly, conscientious, professional, thorough and really goes the extra mile. We highly recommend her!

We have had 3 fantastic shoots with Julia now! I couldn’t recommend her enough. She is lovely, professional, and always makes us feel at ease and comfortable (neither me or my fiancé are very good infront of a camera!!). The photos are fantastic and always get commented on when people come to visit. Thank you Julia!

Laura Spouse
Highly recommend!! My husband and I had a wonderful time with Julia taking anniversary photos. Julia came prepared with poses to try and locations that suited us perfectly. We felt completely at ease and had so much fun. I can’t believe how many different amazing photos we ended up getting out of a 2 hour shoot (3 of which have won awards!). Looking forward to the next photo shoot we do with her. Thanks Julia for helping us capture some amazing memories!
Grace Baird
Where do I start? Julia is incredible! I was only completely sure of one thing with our wedding photos, which was to get the most natural poses & boy did Julia deliver! Our photos are absolutely beautiful & so natural. Julia helped with ideas & directed us perfectly for some amazing pictures. I still look through all of them & love every single one, & I can honestly say it takes me right back to our perfect day! Julia made us feel so at ease, we didn’t have to worry about a thing. She’s very professional & really did do our day justice, thank you so much Julia for supporting me, for being a friend when needed & for just simply being so fantastic to us & our guests. We have some photos that will allow us to re-live that perfect day every day. X

Julia did our wedding photos and I can not thank her enough; they are absolutely stunning exactly what we wanted. Working with Julia was amazing, she was great to contact and spent time getting to know us and exactly what we wanted. She really knows her stuff and wants to capture your day/event the way you want. We had a few special requests on a few of our guests and she was more accommodating. We had such a laugh on the day of the wedding and I couldn’t have asked for anyone better to spend the day with. Definitely clicked and just had a laugh from start to finish. Made a friend in the process. Thank you so much!!!!!

A big thank you to Julia Healey Photography for our amazing family photos! We found Julia very reasonably priced with a relaxed approach and lots to choose from! Julia, you are a very talented young lady and we are confident that you will do well in your photography venture.
Suzanne
I would definitely recommend Julia to anyone; I have 4 girls ranging from nearly 3 years to 11 years old and they have never done a photoshoot before; Julia made them feel so relaxed and they all said they loved it! We had them all done outside and local to our home. So, the park and nearby fields add to my love of the pictures as they mean so much more. Julia is extremely easy going and accommodating whilst remaining professional. You will not be disappointed.

Julia did a cake smash photo shoot for our daughter’s first birthday; Julia prepared her studio before our arrival. It was beautifully decorated in the colours we discussed. She was amazing with our daughter and wasn’t bothered by the mess at all. We will definitely be using Julia again!
Sam Bull
Julia was extremely professional when she photographed our wedding (July 2017). Julia was very professional on the day, and many of our guests commented on how “lovely and warm” she was when organising photographs. I asked Julia to try some different poses with the bridesmaids and groomsmen, which she was more than happy to do and the photos worked out really well. My photos were ready a few weeks after the wedding and they were perfect. We couldn’t recommend Julia enough. Thank you for our amazing photos!

Excellent photographer! Julia is very thorough, friendly and has a great eye for capturing and creating treasured memories. I’ll be using you for my wedding!
Tanya
My 20month old daughter had a mini Xmas shoot with Julia; Julia was so patient and understanding with her. Julia was so good with her and my daughter instantly felt comfortable in her presence when she can usually be a bit shy. The set up was fab, we had a choice of backgrounds and Julia was very flexible and followed my girls lead. The photographs are stunning, such good quality and lovely editing, Julia also managed to edit out a scratch on her face that Imogen had typically given herself that morning... The photographs were available to view the next day, super fast. Professional and super friendly, highly recommend. Thank you! X

Trusting a stranger with the job of capturing some of life’s most wonderful moments is not done easily. However, Julia is deserving of that trust. An absolute professional, with equal amounts of passion and personality, Julia made my wonderful moment with my daughter, perfect. The cake smash for my little girl’s 1st birthday was a fantastic experience and I can’t thank Julia enough. I unfortunately dont seem to have enough house for all the pictures I need to display!
Sharon W
Julia came to our house to take pictures of my cats. She got some beautiful shots and even won and award with one of them. She was so patient with them all and they loved posing for her. I decided to get more pictures of our new kitten and our Bulldogs. The kitten was so well behaved, then came the Bulldogs who decided they loved her so much that they both dived on her smothering her with slobber kisses. She took it all in her stride and was amazing with them. I will definitely get her back.
Tracey P
Julia’s work is absolutely fantastic. I used her services to take photos of my tour in York for my business website and they came out perfect! She was very easy to work with, made me feel at ease and gave me some ideas for photos too because I really had no idea what to do. Excellent fair pricing and flexible too with dates. Thank you Julia, I will be hiring you again the next time I need to update the photos on my website.

Julia captured our wedding day perfectly; we have an amazing album of both relaxed, fun and natural photos and beautiful portrait and group photos that I will always treasure! Amazingly friendly, easy going and so brilliant to work with while capturing our wedding. Nothing was too much for her and she really worked so hard on the day to get every detail from everything and we couldn’t thank you enough for helping keep the memories alive! We also had the pleasure of Julia travelling down to us before our wedding for our very fun and relaxed engagement shoot and I am still so pleased to this day of how those photos turned out. Thanks again Julia x

We met with Julia before the wedding to discuss the photographs we wanted, where Julia was more than happy to discuss our ideas and offer some great ideas of her own. On the day, Julia was calm and professional and we had a really great time and felt totally at ease during all the photographs. We received our edited photographs really quickly and we were over the moon, they are amazing and exactly what we wanted. We will keep them forever and they are such a great reminder of the day. Myself and Stephen would recommend Julia to everyone, she is professional, friendly and very talented! It was so great to relax and enjoy the day and not have to give it a second thought. Thank you, Julia, you did a fantastic job! X

I’m so lucky to have such a wonderfully talented friend! From all the research you do to the attention to detail on every photo, nothing was too much effort! We now have some fantastic wedding photographs that will take us back to memories of our special day for the rest of our lives! Anyone looking for a photographer (be it for a wedding or any other occasion), get in touch with the very talented Julia x
Mr & Mrs Bowman
Julia was a complete professional throughout our entire experience; everything was well managed and well communicated right up to the day. Then during the day she blended in seamlessly with the guests to take wonderful candid shots of everything going on. Rounding up small children wasn’t even a problem when trying to take the staged group photos we wanted. Nothing was too much hassle or work for her, and we got our photos so soon after the wedding it was brilliant, we didn’t have to spend ages waiting to see how they’d turned out. Highly recommended business run by a complete professional with the personal touch.
Mr & Mrs Hodgson
Julia is an incredibly brilliant photographer; the amount of effort and detail she put in on the day of our wedding, and the weeks building up to the big day were just amazing. We have the stunning images to last us a lifetime and we can’t thank her enough. She’s very friendly and caring and if you have any ideas she is more than happy to try to accommodate your requests. Once again Julia, thank you for being our photographer, we couldn’t have had anyone better. xx

Julia was the photographer at my daughters wedding on Saturday 20th April at the Atholl Palace in Pitlochry. Firstly she is a delightful lady, very warm and friendly. She just slotted in as one of the bridle party. Julia was un-obtrusive in the ceremony and she made us feel very relaxed.
Previously Julia took the engagement photos for my daughter and son in law. They were taken outside with their dog included. These photos were so good that they were used for the wedding stationery.
Lesley Bath
What can I say, Julia is amazing! She fit in at my wedding better than some of my guests, 😀 it's like I've known her for years, nothing was too much hassle for her, she went above and beyond her photography duties for me & although I haven't got all my photos back yet, the few teaser ones I got were absolutely stunning, I can't believe it's us in them pictures!! 😂 Would highly recommend her, 5* Thank you so much Julia 😘 xxx

What an amazing lady, with so much patience and with four cats who are all divas she had the patience of a saint. I will definitely be organising a return visit. The photos are fantastic I'm so happy I chose her. Thank you Julia from me and the girls!

Julia is an exceptional family and wedding photographer. She took our first pictures with our baby boy and did an amazing job of getting him to look straight at the camera, which is no mean feat given that he has an eye condition which makes focusing on things difficult for him. We were thrilled to also have her as our wedding photographer, where she did an excellent job herding everyone into position and got some lovely shots, including traditional pictures as well as fun ones. The resulting photos were so beautiful my brother booked her for his wedding too. Julia is very versatile working across a range of styles, so just let her know what kind of photos you want and she will produce them.

We recently had Julia take some ‘family’ photos of us and our two dogs; she was highly professional and we felt at complete ease! My other half doesn’t like having his photo taken but soon felt comfortable with Julia taking it  We will definitely be using her again when we get pup number three in the near future!

Julia is truly exceptional at what she does, highly recommend working with her!

Julia came for a pre-wedding meet up; she was extremely thorough with gaining an idea of what we would like on the day. The day was a blur of excitement, but I remember having so much fun with the photos! We have such an awesome collection of posed and natural photos – we can’t choose a favourite! Julia was kind, funny and extremely professional. She went with the flow of the day and was happy to take ideas of poses from the wedding party. She was patient with our dog Penny who also joined us for a few photos. We would definitely recommend Julia for any event. Thank-you so much!! X
Mr & Mrs Heap
Julia has done some fantastic photos of my 2 granddaughters; she knows exactly how to get them to work with her, considering they are only babies that is a task in itself. She is a lovely lady, very approachable with fresh young ideas, will definitely be going back for more as the girls grow.
Christine
We highly recommend her for wedding and event photography.

Julia did a shoot with our puppy Luna and it was excellent! She was so good with the animals and we were really pleased with the final shots! I would definitely recommend and use Julia again.

Julia is an amazing photographer. I'm not the most confident person in front of the camera and neither is my husband, but she had us laughing and smiling away in no time, she was full of ideas and has given us photo's we will treasure forever. Thank you so much Julia, I'd highly recommend Julia.
