Dear Julia, Jo and Tom have just forwarded the link to their wedding photos. I’ve been through the whole gallery and it’s been like reliving the day again. The pictures are AMAZING – and of course you’ve picked up all aspects of the day so we can enjoy bits when we weren’t even there. I knew when I first saw your work that I wanted you to photograph the girls’ eventual weddings and you have captured Jo and Tom’s day with such insight, sensitivity and humour. Jo and Tom are on their way to Ireland as I write – they have begun looking at the pictures on their phones but I know they will be absolutely thrilled when they eventually get online. Thank you so much – will be in touch again but I wanted to let you know immediately how delighted Mike and I are with the pictures.

Thank you so much for the email – Danny and I sat down last night to look at the hundreds of amazing images and were just blown away. These are far better than we could have ever wished for. You were so professional yet friendly and approachable. Friends on the wedding day were astounded to see we were available to chat and have a drink after the ceremony and not being pulled away for hours of photos – although the quality and quantity would mislead you and it would appear we had – but in actual fact the whole approach of 15 minute shooting then allowing us to spend time with our guests was welcomed by everyone. The end product is of such a high quality it really brought everything back in such detail – including all the small things, you have done an amazing job at the arty and posed pictures they look like something out of a magazine, and your assistant was so wonderful with all our guests and helped capture the essence of the day (as well as keeping some of the children entertained!). We have started to pass the details onto friends and family but it may take us some time – the feedback so far is how original the photos are and how it truly captured the feel of the day (pure wedding day bliss!). Danny and I are in total agreement with this and don’t know how we will get it down to a 100 photos for the album but I’m sure with your help we will have something very unique and stylish as an end result. Speak soon.

Hi Julia. Thank you so much for dropping off the albums. Iain and I just ADORE them! I’m sorry I wasn’t in when you stopped by, but I do appreciate you making the trip. The photos turned out beautifully – we couldn’t be more pleased. And Iain’s mother was very happy with her album. We’re giving my parents theirs in September when we visit the States. I’ve kept it a surprise, so it’ll be fun to see their reactions when they receive it. You really are immensely talented and several of my friends have commented that your photos look like they belong in a magazine. Speaking of which, I entered this ‘Wedding of the Year Competition’ for County Wedding Magazine: Hampshire and Dorset. Well, it turns out the magazine picked our wedding to go onto the next round of the competition. I definitely think your photos deserve to be showcased! Thank you again for everything you did on the day – just brilliant. We can’t stop paging through the album, I treasure it so much.

Choosing a photographer seemed like such a lottery until we came across Julia's website. Her ethos of capturing a moment rather than lots of formal static shots appealed to us immediately. She and Sue were fantastic on the day, capturing amazing quality pictures without eating into our wedding day time. The results are a lovely balance of group pictures coupled with great shots of our family and friends enjoying our day. We really feel that her style of photography captured the mood of our wedding day. I can't recommend Julia enough and wouldn't hesitate to use her for future events.

We spent considerable time looking through photographers websites before choosing her for our wedding . What drew us to Julia Conway was her amazing use of light that is clearly demonstrated in her portfolio photos. She did not disappoint. Not only are the images stunning, she made us feel natural and comfortable in front of the lens (a significant achievement as my wife hates having her photo taken!) Both Julia and her co-photographer were unobtrusive during the day and were largely unnoticed by the guests (getting some great reportage shots as a result) and really captured the story and spirit of the day. Highly recommended.

We spent a lot of time deciding on who we wanted as our wedding photographer. It was important to us to find someone who could perfectly capture our wedding day as well as someone we felt comfortable with. Julia was the perfect choice! Our wedding photographs are incredible and Julia made us feel comfortable all the way throughout the day. 7 years on and we have just had our first family photoshoot with Julia. Once again the results are incredible, photos we will treasure forever!

Julia is a very friendly and easy going photographer. I am quite camera shy especially around strangers with big cameras so i had some worries about choosing a photographer for our wedding, however having looked at her gorgeous pictures on the website i liked her modern take on family shots and inquired about meeting her. After email/phone conversations we decided to arrange a pre-wedding shoot and i have to say it was amazing experience. On the magical day itself Julia and her colleague were very discreet and blended in with family and friends making me feel comfortable and not surrounded by he paparazzi .Not only did she take some amazing shots of the day,the photo album is just beautiful! I would recommend Julia for a friendly yet utterly professional service.
