Julia was the best!
We are so incredibly thankful we hired Julia to take pictures for our wedding! Julia was so communicative, putting a lot of stress of wedding planning at ease. She is super talented, capturing the moments of our wedding beautifully. She truly made getting your picture taken comfortable, easy and fun. I am in awe of the way she was able to capture moments and lighting. You will not regret using her to photograph your special day.Sent on 03/17/2021

An Unforgettable Engagement Shoot
How do I even begin? I'll start off by saying no words in this review can ever fully capture how grateful we are to Julia Lilith Photography. We are getting married in North Carolina but wanted to do an engagement shoot for our save the dates in Wisconsin. We found Julia on WeddingWire and booked her for our engagement shoot after talking to several other photographers in the area because we loved her dark and moody editing style, she was open to traveling up North at a fair rate, and she sounded nice over the phone, which was important to us because the chemistry you have with your photographer comes out in the quality of their work and how they capture the true you as a couple.
Everything seemed to be going according to plan. We had arranged to meet her up in Sturgeon Bay at Cave Point Park (2-3 hours away from home). A couple of weeks before our appointment, Julia had driven up to Door County and swung by our location to check out good shooting locations, so she had a plan for where to take us. The weather was setting up to be a balmy 43 degrees with partly cloudy skies. We had texted each other the day before to confirm details, and were on the last road before the trail head. Then we hit a bump in the road. Literally. We tore open the sidewall of one of our back tires 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of the shoot. No spare tire because the hybrid battery of the car took up the trunk space, and no way to repair the side wall with the slurry kit. To say we were in trouble would be an understatement. No tire repair shops were open on a Sunday evening, and we were too far from home for a tow back. The cherry on top? There was a Packers game on that night, so no business was going to be available to help us. We texted Julia, who had driven up with her husband, and they walked down to see if there was anything they could do to help. They even grabbed their car to see if their spare tire would work for us. An hour into what would have been our full engagement session, we were able to arrange for a tow and an overnight stay at a local hotel.
Julia was incredibly gracious with handling the situation. We still had an hour of sunlight left, so she drove us in her car to the trail head for us to go forward with the shoot (remember we are now an hour late, and she still has to drive 2 hours to get home herself). The shoot was effortless. We had no idea what we were doing, but Julia made us feel comfortable and gave gentle direction when we needed her to. Since we had to take everything out of our car to leave behind for the tow (change of clothes, blankets to stay warm, essentials), Julia's husband toughed it out in the cold to keep an eye on our belongings while Julia took us to the various locations for our pictures. She helped us construct blanket walls to change in the middle of the shoot, and made sure that we got all of the poses we wanted as we wrapped up. We used up every second of daylight before sunset that we had, and when all was said and done, Julia took us back to our car to see off the tow and then drove us 30 minutes back into town for our overnight hotel stay.
The next day she reached out to us to check in on our car situation and to let us know that she had put together a sneak peek of our engagement photos. I'll let her work speak for itself. TLDR: If we're ever in the market for another lifestyle or event photography shoot, we are definitely coming back to Julia Lilith Photography and would highly recommend you do the same.
TLDR; if you are looking for a photographer will go the extra mile to capture the love you have in your relationship, book Julia Lilith Photography.Sent on 10/19/2020

Safe & Fun COVID Non-Wedding Photoshoot
Julia is very friendly and helpful. She took photos of my fiance and I at the Genesee Theatre in Waukegan, IL during the pandemic. She was great about keeping her mask on at all times and keeping her distance while taking great photos.
Since we just did a photoshoot and not a wedding ceremony or reception, it was a great deal (financially), and she followed through on her offer (both timeline and results). We ended up with nicely edited photos, and even when we asked about unedited photos, she provided them to us!
I would definitely recommend her! If I hadn't already paid off my photographer for my non-refundable postponed wedding, I would have hired her again!Sent on 08/21/2020
