We were so lucky to come across Julie to have her as our photographer for our engagement and wedding photos. We couldn't be more pleased with her work. We knew she was the right photographer for us when we met her. You could tell with the detailed questions she asked would result in amazing moments captured. A day after the photos taken on both the engagement shoot and wedding, we received 'preview' photos just to get us excited - anyone could appreciate how thoughtful and efficient this was. For the photos itself, we can say that both times we were more than blown away. We don't know how she did it being solo and created so much accents and details to the photos. She's made it very difficult to choose a set of favorite photos because they are all so wonderful. We certainly recommend Julie to anyone who is looking for a photographer who is professional, passionate, and great to work with. Thank you so much Julie, you helped us capture some of the best moments of our lives to remember and keep forever.

We found Julie searching for wedding photographers in Vancouver. Even on our first meeting, we could tell how kind and professional she was. She was very knowledgeable about wedding day timeline and brought a collection of her portfolio along for us to get a feel for her work. Julie shot our engagement session (which was awesome), and booked her for 4 hours on our wedding day. Julie was the perfect photographer: efficient with time, effective in directing family and friends, has an artistic eye for lighting and setting, detail oriented, made the most of our time with her, and (most importantly) delivered fantastic results. Thank you so much, Julie. You've made our day extra special!
We will see you again one day in the future when we'll need family/maturity sessions!

Absolutely fantastic! We could not have been happier with our experience with Julie! From the first point of contact to receiving our final photographs, Julie was professional and personable. Her knowledge and advice made for a stress free wedding day. Our friends and family were overjoyed to see the photographs. Our guests even commented at how easily she fit in with everyone and put everyone at ease, allowing for such natural emotion and beauty to come through her photographs. I would highly recommend her for capturing all of your important events.

Julie was extremely professional and made sure we were comfortable in front of the camera. She was courteous of the time we paid for and was extremely efficient on the day of the wedding. All of our guests had nothing but good things to say about her. The pictures turned out beautifully and we couldn't be happier. We would definitely recommend Julie for any photography needs and we will definitely be using her services again in the future.

Julie did an amazing job photographing our wedding. She captured important and sweet moments throughout the ceremony and reception. I am so pleased at the comprehensiveness of the collection. All our guests were "captured' and we have some lovely ones of our family members - especially with a range in age. Julie was professional and personable and a complete delight to work with. She gave direction for large group shots and then quietly captured moments discretely. I can highly recommend Julie - she brings ease and confidence as she does her work. Thank you again Julie!!!

We are so happy with our maternity photos!! Julie was very flexible and accommodated our last minute decision to have this shoot! She very quickly sent us a preview and the final product came shortly after!! We can't wait for the newborn shoot once our baby arrives!

You don't make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.”
I agree with Ansel Adams. This is why choosing a right photographer for me was so important when I decided to have my first photo session. I saw Julia's work online and and really liked her virtual personality. I was not disappointed. I just hoped to have good photos for me to use as professional images but the photo session resulted in many photos that really captured who I am. I ended up using some of them for a profile on a dating site. I was happy I did because these photos brought together my now husband and me.
We had another photo session with Julie next year for all of us and, again, I was really impressed by her professionalism, courtesy, wit and humour that shone through the pictures. When she learned that we decided to get married she offered to be our wedding photographer and I could not imagine anyone else who would be a better choice, after all, her photos were the reason we found each other!
We had a small informal ceremony in a park that was really special for the both of us and, looking at the pictures again and again, we can relive this experience now and see what was there on that day: our beautiful friends and family who were happy for us and the whole spectrum of emotions that we went through before, after and during the ceremony. It was an amazing day and it will stay this way with us in Julie's photographs.
I'd like to quote David Bailey in conclusion to my review:
“It takes a lot of imagination to be a good photographer. You need less imagination to be a painter because you can invent things. But in photography everything is so ordinary; it takes a lot of looking before you learn to see the extraordinary.”
If you are looking for someone who can capture your special moments in all their beauty, Julie Doro is the photographer you need!

Julie photographed my wedding in August 2015 and she did an absolutely amazing job. It was not an easy wedding, as there were some major glitches....hurricane wind storm, trees down, power outage at the venue...this was planned as an outdoor ceremony which had to be moved into a living room setting....you get the picture.
Julie was fantastic! The alterations in the wedding plan (and emotional meltdown of the bride!) did not inhibit her ability to take amazing photographs and truly capture all the special moments of wedding. The pictures were absolutely beautiful!
I have no hesitation in recommending her service, as she is clearly a gifted photographer and an absolutely lovely person to work with.
Thank you Julie!

Julie was amazing to work with. She was remarkably professional and had a great calming effect with our large group. We had nearly 20 individuals with many small children, and her demeanor was perfect to make the picture taking experience very enjoyable. She was willing to shoot in the venue of our choosing (Stanley Park) and incorporate several sites that led to fantastic pictures. Quality process and product; you can't ask for anything more. I can't say enough positive comments about our experience.
Joseph, August 2016
Julie is an amazing photographer! We booked her for our wedding and engagement, and I couldn't be happier with the pictures. She really captured the happiness of the day, and got great pictures of all my family and friends. She has a gift for getting people to relax in front of the camera, and an excellent eye for detail. Thank you Julie!
