I’m Julie Austin, a wedding and family photographer in the Florida Keys. Ohio girl who fell in love with her scuba instructor and moved to the Keys to follow her heart and her dreams. My back yard includes Islamorada, Key Largo, Marathon, and Key West. Timeless romantic and sucker for a great love story.
When I had my dream wedding, with the love of my life, I made the HUGE mistake of not hiring a professional wedding photographer. We only had 8 guests because we had a far away destination wedding in Rarotonga. I thought we could simply have our family and friends take pictures, and that would be all we really needed. Afterwards, I was so sad that I did not get those dream photos that were worthy of our dream wedding.
As a result, I decided that I couldn’t have another bride make the same mistake that I did. I already had a background in art and photography, so I became a wedding photographer. My mission was to make sure that every couple that I worked with would have timeless photos that they would be proud to have hanging on their wall to remember one of the most important and special days of their lives.
We had to renew our vows, back in Rarotonga, so that I could recapture those special images that I now have hanging on my wall. I am also proud to say that, since the first time I said "I do" to my husband, I have photographed countless weddings and am fulfilling the mission to make sure my clients have their dream photos to match their dream wedding!
It's been almost two decades since I started on my professional journey. I have grown so much over the years, and met so many wonderful families that have truly enriched my life. It would be an honor to meet you and see if I can help tell your love story through photos.
