You have captured our day just perfectly.From start to finish you have been so easy to deal with. On the day you quietly snapped away capturing all of those magic moments that we will forever cherish. We cannot wait to share these photos with our friends and family. Thank you so much for everything! x" Rach and Rich
“Julia and I met at uni, sharing the same passion for the sea and enjoying life. I am not a huge fan of having my photo taken therefore it was really important for me to have a photographer who would make me feel relaxed and be part of our day. Julia encompassed everything that I wanted, she was professional, fun and a calming influence! It was so hard to chose what photos we wanted in the album and I loved them all! We look so relaxed and happy and Julia captured the great party atmosphere and all our friends and family having fun. Looking forward to doing another photo shoot with Julia and our new bub!” Rob and Claire
"I am lucky enough to have known Julia for many years and when I knew I was getting married I didn't hesitate to ask her to photograph the day. We gave her many challenges including the Groom on a boat, the Brides' mother who refused to stand still and a 'wedding chase' on the beach but Julia rose to the occasion and gave us some purely magical photos. Julia is a wonderfully calm presence in the chaos that is a wedding day and we can't recommend her enough. Love Lisa and Rik xxx"
"When we first set out with the task of finding a wedding photographer it seemed like a mine field and I spent weeks looking for the right person for the job, but when I came across Julia's website I knew she was just what we were looking for when I saw her photographic style. Julia was so accommodating in helping us put together all the elements that she could offer into the perfect package to suit our needs. we have been to so many weddings where the photography seemed like a chore, with the photographers barking orders at everybody! But Julia was the best combination of laid back yet professional, keeping us all organised without being overly bossy and helping to make us feel at ease in front of the camera!. We are so grateful to Julia for her hard work and the happy memories that we can look back on for many years to come." Nikki and Paul Whitby
SUBMITTING YOUR REVIEW
I’m writing to ask if you wouldn’t mind jotting down a quick testimonial for my website. It's really good for potential clients to see feedback as well as examples of my work on my website.
Would this be ok with you? It doesn't need to be an essay, a few words would just be wonderful.
Thank you, Julia
"Julia arrived early at our house to start the bridal preparation shots. She has a great eye for both natural 'in-the-moment' shots and more formal pictures whilst blending well into the wedding without being obtrusive, but at the same time lending direction where needed to get the really memorable photos from of day. I had spent some time choosing the right shoes and she picked up on these details straight away and she photographed some great reminders of getting ready moments. I have already recommended Julia to friends who are getting married this year and would highly recommend using her to capture your special day." Neal and Jess
"Julia was fantastic on the day from the preparations all the way to the first dance. Without her input the day would not have run as smoothly as it did. As for the photographs, I was so happy with the collection that she put together as she has a real eye for the little things and really captured the essence of the day that was personal to us. She had some lovely ideas for the two of us on the beach, some which still make me laugh and cry when I look at them now. These pictures I will treasure forever. Julia also managed to capture all the special moments and special people from my day, which was so awesome. I cannot thank her enough and am looking forward to my baby bump shots (the next big thing!) Thank you xx" Paul and Abi
"Julia not only had the patience of a saint in handling my new husband with the attention span of a child, she managed to take a camera shy tom boy and change her in to a princess. Julia had one rule, to keep it natural and don’t force a picture (or she would have a run away bride), she planned the day and lead the way to capturing the ultimate memories of our forever. " Graham and Bex
"We were lucky enough to win a prize with Julia for an entire wedding photography package plus the added bonus of Montezuema chocolates for each guest as wedding favours! We couldn't have been happier with Julia's artistic style, organisation, professionalism and personable nature. Julia was very helpful with suggesting novel ideas for both the engagement shoot where she recommended a lovely setting as well as for the big day where Julia provided an excellent service capturing those key moments you want to cherish with a great eye for detail. We would certainly recommend Julia for anyone looking for a photographer to capture their special occasion." Ben and Kat
“We first came across a sample of Julia’s work displayed in a local coffee house. The photographs were stunning so we decided to take a look at her website. We needed to look no further for a photographer for our wedding. A couple of quick emails later and an appointment was made for Julia to visit us. What a delightful person! She took a real interest in us, spent a lot of timeand was very thorough in covering all the details. On the day Julia was totally professional and also discreet, at times we hardly knew she was there. Ours was a small and quiet wedding but Julia really captured the atmosphere of the day and her skilful editing has resulted in a fabulous album for us to treasure for ever. We would absolutely recommend Julia for all your photographic needs!” Steve and Geraldine
"What can my wife and I say about Julia that hasn't already been said? 10 out of 10 through out the whole process! From the first day meeting Julia to the day when our album arrived everything has been fantastic, Julia herself is great and her work is superb we absolutely love our album. Julia delivered in every aspect she is a top professional with amazing photography and a pleasure to deal with throughout! I would recommend Julia to all our friends and family and if your looking for a fabulous photographer than look no further than Julia Toms!" Terry and Sian
"Thank you VERY much. A big thank you for your time over the last year planning, photographing and then finally creating the perfect album for us. We love it! We will recommend you highly when people ask and I'm sure we will come back to you one day in the future when we want some cute baby pictures." Neil and Kim
"Julia managed to capture all the key moments on our special day. She visited us before the wedding so we could meet her and discuss the photographic ideas that we wanted for the day. We visited the beach after the church ceremony and she created some fantastic shots using certain props that she had brought with her. She is extremely friendly, easy to work with and always puts you at ease. She also has a professional attitude, is quick to respond and keep you updated on the progress of the shots. The end results have been a portfolio of fantastic pictures that will be with us forever" Rob & Monika
"We can't say enough wonderful things about Julia. We were recommended Julia through a friend and as soon as we saw her website we were convinced. The care and passion she has for her clients is obvious and comes through in her photos. Meeting Julia face to face made me feel so relaxed, and it was another thing not to worry over! She asked all the right questions and when it was obvious I didn't know the answers she gave brilliant suggestions and ideas. Through her experience, she was so helpful with things that we hadn't even considered. What was fantastic was that Julia's price included all the high resolution photos that she took, this might sound strange but other photographers don't necessarily offer that for free! On the day, Julia was absolutely incredible; helping, organising, taking pictures of all the right moments and totally professional. The photos of our wedding are just stunning, they capture the mood and joy of the day totally. Every time we look at them we smile; we will never get bored of looking at them." Alistair and Nadine
"When we decided to get married in Lapland we were amazed and eternally grateful when Julia agreed to come with us. Julia became part of the family whilst we were away, her eye for creativity is exquisite. We have the most fantastic photos to treasure which compliment our wonderful memories. Her professionalism was appreciated when it came to organising the family shots, which she managed to create with originality and style. We truly have the most unique wedding photos of anyone's we've seen since. Even with the challenges of photographing in a hotel built of ice she rose to the occasion and utilised the light and scenery with amazing results. She is a fantastic photographer with a warm and friendly manner praised by everyone. Her subjects feel at ease and ready to smile. The results of our albums were truly magnificent, her creativity and skill with the photo books is inspiring. She pulled together fantastic scenery and backgrounds creating a really unique and memorable display of our very special day." Ollie and Jess
"Julia took the photos of our wedding at Amberley Castle and achieved a perfect blend of formal set-up shots and 'fly on the wall' fun shots. She used the Castle's many photogenic locations to the best and was responsive to our suggestions. Most importantly, Julia was very easy to work with while being totally professional. We would recommend her to anyone." Dave and Barbara
"Julia is a wonderful photographer. We have so many beautiful photos of our special day and she was able to capture each and every moment in such a natural way. Julia is a pleasure to have at your wedding day. She is professional,calm and most importantly will take the most beautiful and memorable photos of your big day. I can not recommend her enough." Steve and Marie
"Julia has been a friend of mine since school and when we were planning our wedding, she was our first choice for our wedding photographer. On the day Julia was amazing. My husband Tom and I did not want a photographer that dictated the day. Julia took the most beautiful and natural photos of us and our guests, yet we hardly new that she was there! I had so many people come up to me during the day to compliment our photographer and I believe one or two even booked Julia for their own wedding day. Our wedding photo album captures the day perfectly. Thank you Julia!" Tom and Ellie
"Right from the outset Julia was nothing but helpful, visiting us at your home address and explaining everything clearly to us. Julia was even happy to meet us at the venue and again took the time to talk us through exactly what we could need, whilst listening to our ideas. On the day Julia and her assistant were nothing but helpful, and managed to capture the day perfectly and yet at the same time did not at any point interrupt the flow of the wedding. We could not be more pleased with the finished album. The photos were all very professional but at the same time very natural, capturing our guests enjoying the day. Jason and I would highly recommend Julia to any of our friends. Thank you Julia" Jason and Emma.
