Let's be real. It's simple. We are all looking to Relax + Laugh....for our hearts to beat a little faster, our hugs to be a little bit tighter, and to experience the little moments a little deeper. Let's share that adventure together authentically, beautifully and fiercely. 

We make our mark in the photo world by thinking differently, and by challenging the norm. We do this by a friendship from discovery to delivery, and by making our clients stories become part of OUR story. We are doing this for you. Thank you for showing us why.

Catching the moments of simplicity and natural beauty takes a director, a fly on the wall, and an observer of light all in one. We realize this. Guide and share. Blow your mind moments are happening right now, in the every day!

It started quite humbly. I had a vision, but no matter how hard I tried to express it, it just didn't come out right on the other end. This sent me and this business on a mission to help others with what we have already been through. Let's talk vision with honesty, humor and integrity.

Would it be possible that our lens could provide evidence of a persons human nature and their own reality? The last 20 years of magazine and blog features, weddings, proposals, engagements, boudoir have show us a deep and resounding yes!!!

Julie Dreelin Beach Productions’ goal is to get to know you and see how we can work together to tell your unique story. We spend time learning about you, making sure we go over your package with us thoroughly, talk about the details, offering free engagement portraits and even guiding you on how to make the most of your photography and/or videography time with me and my team on the wedding day. We have worked over 1500 weddings, we live this and want to share our art and knowledge with you.


No two couples are alike. Our goal is to collaborate with you in detail before the big day on your “look” to match you with the perfect staff on our team – you have hired Julie Dreelin Beach Productions for our photographic art, now let’s dive into the details. Want the photographer to steal you away during the reception for some intimate out of this world sunset shots? Love the “bohemian”, organic look? Maybe you are not sure on your “look”, and just want gorgeous, sharp, bright photographs documenting your big day. We love to hear your thoughts on what is important to you!

Nobody wants to miss the best part of the wedding and we understand this.
Yes, it’s a joining of families, but that doesn’t mean you have to spend 2 hours on the wedding day posing for photos to prove it!

We converse with you via email or phone BEFORE the wedding on the importance and time spent on family/bridal party shots so that our team can focus on what all of my clients want-capturing you and your fiance in a natural, candid way with friends and family without interfering with the cocktail hour festivities.

We love Julie! It was such a relief when we finally found her as she just got what we wanted. In Julie we found a talented and thoughtful photographer, that is also a friend. Julie guided us before the event with tons of lighting and timing tips, then supported us like a much needed confidant during the wedding day. She chased us through wind, sand, and water splashes, all while complimenting us and throwing tips on how to look just right.  

The photos that we have are beyond priceless. I will cherish them forever.

We feel so honored that you photographed our wedding day and wish you happiness and love always. You are so important to us, we love you!

We want to thank your team.
The creativity in thinking to take some of the pictures were amazing!
We were so blessed to have had the opportunity to have such a professional and talented photography team create such special memories of our special day! Every picture tells it’s own little story and literally every single picture makes me smile and giggle as I can just imagine what was being said during that particular moment. As the bride, I missed a lot being “behind the scenes” and the last to come out but now I truly feel like I didn’t miss anything!! I will never forget my wedding day and it is truly because you were a special part of it.

I just had to write to tell you how much I’m loving the photos you took over Colleen and Josh’s wedding weekend. You are so gifted. I really appreciate the way you took time to know who was who and capture such special moments with everyone.

Colleen’s photos are gorgeous — could she have looked more beautiful or more radiant the whole time? I don’t think so — and you caught her spirit beautifully in photo again and again.
