ABOUT JULIANNA MICHELLE PHOTOGRAPHY
Hi! I am Julianna! I am so blessed to be a mom, wife, and photographer. Born and raised here in Garrett County, Maryland!
My personality is really easy-going, a free spirit and fun! My style is kinda old school – white rustic – vintage film. Some of my favorite things are, olive green, burgundy, rose gold, white lace, roses, and succulents!
I have loved photography ever since I was a little girl! I remember always setting up my dolls and toys to take their pictures, which my daughter does now with her toys; and when I got my first camera I remember taking all my friends around town to take their picture. I started photographing seniors, newborns, parties and everything in between, but after shooting my first wedding, I was in love!
I have worked hard and learned so much through the years, and I am always finding something new to dive into! I love being able to try new things and meeting new people and learning about their style. My passion is being able to capture a love story, from engagement to wedding, to newborn, and family milestones!
My favorite thing about photography is being able to capture a memory; A single moment in history forever remembered with one click! I will forever be making moments into memories, I hope our journeys cross paths and we are able to make some new memories together!
Q+A WITH JULIANNA MICHELLE PHOTOGRAPHY
DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE.
WHAT INSPIRES YOU?
My greatest inspiration is my family! They always keep me reaching for the stars!
NAME SOMETHING YOU AND YOUR CLIENTS SEEM TO HAVE IN COMMON.
One thing I can always find in common with my clients is that we both strive for REAL. I love being able to connect with my clients and make a true natural moment happen in front of the camera; smiles, surprises, joy & most of all, memories.
WHAT MADE YOUR FAVORITE CLIENT EVENT SO SPECIAL?
My favorite client event has to be WEDDINGS! But how could I ever just choose one favorite! Through all of the weddings I have had the privilege to photograph, there is always something that makes it unique & special, and I LOVE it. Every wedding is custom made, two people handpicked by grace and love; I feel so blessed be able to watch them tell their own version of a “Happily Ever After”
WHY SHOULD A COUPLE MARRY IN DEEP CREEK/GARRETT COUNTY?
Deep Creek/Garrett County is so diverse. There are stunning views, from hilltops & mountains to fields, woods lakes, and rivers! Indoors outdoors, you can find the perfect venue right here in this beautiful slice of heaven.
HOW HAVE YOU SEEN THE LOCAL WEDDING INDUSTRY CHANGE?
OF COURSE, the local wedding industry is ever-changing. Born and raised in Garrett County, weddings in GC have become more popular than ever; Mostly because there are always new venues or our current venues are always striving to make everything better year after year.
WHAT CURRENT TRENDS DO YOU WISH WE HAD MORE OF LOCALLY?
I am craving for some more industrial trends. Here in Garrett County, we do a lot of rustic, outdoors, with barns and fields! Although they are BEAUTIFUL, It’s rare to find someone with a more industrial taste, and I would love to incorporate a little more of that into my photography!
WHAT IS THE HIGHEST COMPLIMENT A COUPLE CAN GIVE YOU?
I love to hear about how much my client’s photos mean to them or to see them hanging on their walls at home. I also love to see that smile, that spark of joy and their eyes & hearts light up when they see their photos for the first time. What better feeling could you ask for?
WHAT TOOL CAN YOU ABSOLUTELY NOT LIVE WITHOUT?
The one tool I can’t live without (besides my camera) would have to be my drill!
I love being able to build props and things for my newborn and milestone clients!
IF YOUR BUSINESS WAS A BEVERAGE, WHAT WOULD IT BE? WHY?
If my service was a beverage, I would have to say hot chocolate, with whipped cream of course!
I love all the warm toasty feelings and have to add a little spunk of fun and energy!
WHO’S YOUR BUSINESS’S STYLE ICON?
I can’t say that I have a style icon, but I love the warm bohemian feels that I capture under the sun!
I also love old fashioned films and black and white classics.
DESCRIBE THE PERFECT JULIANNA MICHELLE WEDDING.
The perfect JMP wedding would have to be something small. With succulents everywhere and pink roses! In a completely white barn or outdoors under string lights & stars! A sparkler send-off and surrounded by love, laughter and happily ever after!
YOUR WEDDING BUSINESS WOULD BE EASIER IF:
Business would be easier if I had an assistant 24/7!
ANYTHING ELSE WE SHOULD KNOW?
I’m a mom, wife, & photographer. I love being able to capture real moments. Forever amazed how one single second can be captured forever. Willing and eager to always learn something new and keep striving for perfection! My biggest dream is to be able to travel the world & take my photos to the highest level.
