At our first interview, Julia asked, "In twenty years, what do you want to remember from your wedding?"
Bride said: "All the emotions."
Groom said: "I want to remember how much fun we had!"

Mission accomplished. Not only did Julia capture the energy of one the of the most important times of our lives but she also solidified it in our hearts. By using her keen sense of awareness every shot tells a story, conveys emotions felt or transports you to an instance in time filled with overwhelming joy!
In our official love story as newly wed husband and wife, Julia was able to capture the everlasting bond of love and affection that brought us together years ago. Our photographs are tangible proof of the union of two different families coming together to share an immeasurable amount of love for one another.

Julia made sure to get plenty of input from us to ensure that our photos were perfect. Although we took the approach of giving her complete creative control we were confident that we were going to be taken care of. Her work says it all! She is incredibly easy to work with, she understood what we wanted, was super organized and had endless patience in dealing with our family after a few hours of open bar partying!!

We would without a doubt refer Julia Manet to anyone looking to hire an awesome photographer. We cannot thank Julia enough! She is hands down the best in Yuma!

On her engagement session:

Haven't even gotten the pictures back, but based on her dedication during our engagement shoot (she literally laid in the dirt to get the shots she wanted), I have high hopes. I'm looking forward to seeing how she documents our day and will definitely update my review when the time comes!

On her wedding coverage:

Start to finish, Julia has been amazing. Her artistry is easily visible, but her professionalism and demeanor are difficult to quantify - she makes it fun to be in front of the camera. She showed up on time (even when we weren't), worked her tush off the WHOLE time, and delivered a product well beyond what we could have hoped for. We will definitely be using her services again in the future, and cannot recommend her highly enough.

My fiance and I are Yuma transplants and were looking for someone to take a few engagement photos for us. Julia was recommended to us by a coworker and I knew from her first e-mail response she was the perfect fit for us. My fiance and I are far from photogenic, but after getting warmed up and getting our awkward laughing out of the way Julia lightened our moods and got some great shots of us and was patient in working with us to get a few shots with our dog. Her pricing is very reasonable, she is flexible to work with and returns the photos in a timely manner! Thank you, Julia!

I absolutely love her photography pictures. I totally recommend her to anyone that wants to take photos of any occasion. The pics I have gotten so far are amazingly beautiful ...

Our first ever family photo experience was with Julia. We live in California, but visited family in Yuma, and wanted some photos at “home”. She took time to make the entire experience comfortable, giving us activities to encourage interaction and eliminate the awkwardness of posing for photos. This is exactly what I wanted, as the idea of overly posed photos hanging in my home makes me cringe. Even though she warned us that the photos would take a long time, given the late booking and her very full schedule, it did not take long at all. The photos turned out absolutely beautiful, and I’m so happy to show them off in my home and on social media. She did a few maternity, family, couple, and some of just the 2 kids. I am so pleased at the diversity of them. After the shoot, Julia hung around and chatted with me, really taking her time to be personable and kind and genuine. I really love her as a photographer as well as a person, and I highly recommend her for any type of photo shoot.
