My photography work is my ode to femininity,
to timeless editorials, to life's perfect imperfections and to the tiniest and most breathtaking of moments. My assignments have taken me far and wide in this world and allowed me to capture some of my clients' most precious, intimate and defining moments, from luxury wedding celebrations in the UK and internationally to exclusive commercial and fashion campaigns.

“Katie is hands down one of the most inspirational artists
out there today. We didn’t want a standard wedding photographer, we wanted someone who was going to create a piece of art that we could display in our home so we were willing to invest more to achieve that level of quality. It was obvious Katie had the talent we were looking for. She made our day look as if it came straight out of Vogue. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, Katie."
PAINTER . PHOTOGRAPHER . MENTOR
My work is predominantly shot on rolls of film;
I adore its depth, luminescence and grainy quality. I still use a hybrid approach on occasion, relying on digital images when the need arises, but what I offer isn't achievable through standard methods and traditional styling.
My philosophy is not to disturb the beauty that is right in front of us
in favour of what we think should be there. My images don't adopt the airbrushed quality one sees in artificially lit shoots, but instead exude a painterly glow and ethereal quality. I use luminous, natural light sources and neutral, complementary tones to capture unforced, undone moments.
Away from the camera I am an Eclectic soul.
If I am not in another country on a photography job then you will find me either teaching and mentoring other artists and photographers or creating my own large scale original oil paintings which I have been doing for over a decade. I am currently turning these into beautiful fabric products and occasionally sell the original works to private collectors.
With interest from some of the UK's leading galleries and publishers, I do occasionally exhibit. You can learn more and get to know me better over on my blog and page of my art, my mentoring services and shop over at www.katiejulia.com , should you wish to learn more.
I guess this is what makes me different to the standard 'photographer'.
I am an artist first, you see, so each job I take on means the world to me. I can only take on the ones I love with the people I connect with because its those stories I feel I can tell to the best of my ability. I will always go above and beyond to create the most beautiful photography collection and experience for my clients. In every way , being a real artist means I cannot rest until the job is done to the very highest of standards.
I am blessed to work with an array of clients
who trust me to craft their stories. Our work together is a creative adventure; a true partnership of trust, realness and insight.
If you are looking for
luminous, breathtaking images to encapsulate the essence your story, your wedding or your brand, then I hope my images inspire you to get in touch.
