Welcome to Studio Julie Photography, Julie specializes as a Key West wedding photographer, portrait photographer, family photographer, Day in the life family documentary photographer, family vacation photographer and event photographer.

Julie's style is referred to as candid, emotional, real, raw, fun and quirky, definitely not your traditional straight forward wedding photographer. When people ask who is the best photographer in Key West, we sort of have to raise our hands...

Key West Wedding Photographer

Based out of Key West, Florida and serving all of the Florida Keys...The privilege of being part of someone’s most intimate life story is never taken for granted, as demonstrated by each of our pictures. As true "Photojournalist" we seize photos that evoke the best emotion instead of the most obvious one. For instance, there’s nothing like grandma busting a move on the dance floor with one of the handsome groomsmen, or how about the ring bearer and flower girl sampling the wedding cake before the bride and groom? Oh and let's not forget the traditional tearjerking father and daughter dance that quickly turns to a fast paced jig, absolutely priceless! These unscripted candid moments are not only extraordinary, but are truly what great memories are made of. We have been honored to shoot at a great variety of Key West Wedding locations. These locations range from laid back Smathers Beach, the old Key West Casa Marina, the fun and hip Margaritaville Resort, the private and elegant Sunset Key Resort, the quant Hyatt Centric, step back into history at the Historic Hemingway House, the quiet and romantic Audubon House, the fun and fancy free Southernmost Beach Resort, the recently updated Reach Resort, the best view of Key West harbor at the Ocean Key Resort or Zero Duval, to the historic Trumans Little White House, to the best sunset location on the island at Fort Zachary Taylor State Park, to the exclusive Little Palm Island, and many more private backyard venues and unique Key West venues. Key West has something for everyone and we would love to uniquely capture your day!

Florida Keys and Key West Family Photographer

Documentary Family Photographer - A Day in the Life

Big sister painting baby’s face with mommy’s lipstick, little Jimmy getting into the spaghetti sauce, dad and mom celebrating in the hall way after putting kids to bed, all these hair pulling moments are what make our “Day in the Life” (DITL) sessions so special and unique. The focus is in documenting you and your family in their most tender, vulnerable, funny and sometimes messy circumstances. What at the time you probably wanted to forget, we celebrate with amazing images. Candid photos are taken in the comfort of your home or while visiting and/or vacationing in Key West. You tell us the location, and we will take care of the rest. Julie has been recognized in the top 10 photographers around the world by the Family Photojournalist Association for the past 3 years.


Awards and Accolades - Award Winning Key West Photographer

Both humbling and exciting, receiving recognition in such organizations such as Wedding Photojournalist Association (WPJA), Artistic Guild Wedding Photojournalistic Association (AGWPJA), Fearless Photographers, Masters of Wedding Photography, Family Photojournalistic Association (FPJA), Documentary Family Photographers (DFA) and Weddison Awards: praise and accolades are always reassuring and exciting, but nothing says YES like a bride and groom being over the moon when they receive their wedding images.

Amazingly talented kind wedding photo artist

Studio Julie Photography of Key West Florida - documentary wedding photographer - not just a photographer - but rather a caring artist who captures those candid moments - that make you smile, cry, and just plain happy. We did not want the boring posed wedding photos - Julie & her husband David - besides being super nice and easy to work with - care about their bride & groom & the guests - and were in the mix (on the floor, in the sand, hearding Hemingway cats) - capturing those moments of a wedding celebration. Grateful & happy to have had the best wedding photographers on our special day & grateful to call them friends too. Our beautiful engagement pictures and wedding pictures bring the celebration right back as if we were still there. Only a true artist can do that. Thank you Julie & David.


Words can’t express how thankful we are to have had Studio Julie there to capture our wedding! As soon as I saw their work I immediately fell in love. A photojournalistic style is something I’ve always wanted and they are without a doubt the best in the business. Not only are they fantastic photographers, but an amazing couple! We told them we wanted to jump in the pool after our ceremony, and they could not have been more excited. It’s amazing to work with people who are truly passionate about what they do. We can’t thank them enough for all their hard work, attention to detail, and willingness to go with anything! Our wedding wouldn’t have been the same without them, and we are so grateful to have had them on our team!!




There was no shortage of happy tears on our wedding day. They flowed all over again when we received our gallery from Studio Julie.
David and Julie both have an incredible eye. If you appreciate a photojournalistic approach, this is your team.
We are not the most comfortable pair in front of a camera, but the combination of their relaxed approach and clear instructions made our experience perfect. We had no memory of their presence during the ceremony, and yet they captured the most intimate shots. We trusted their judgement and let them take the lead for the day and cannot be happier with the end result.


Amazing!!! My husband and I love our photos!!

Studio Julie is a husband and wife team. They are amazing!!!! We got married on March 9, 2019 in key west. They sent us a gallery of black and white and color pictures that they took. We were blown away when looking at our photos. We chose them due to their ability to take candid pictures. They took so many wonderful candid photos of our ceremony and our reception. We wanted to have sunset pictures in key west and they were able to capture beautiful sunset pictures for us. We would highly recommend them to any couple that wants unforgettable wedding photos!!!
