So this is me Julia Walters!
(no sadly not the famous comedy actress who I so admire ..)
I'm Julia or fondly referred to as Jules..
Wife to my very supportive husband Al.
Mother to my wonderful kids Sam + Jess.
And not to leave out our fur baby Daisy.
As a professional wedding photography, I specialise in a cinematic storyteller style throughout your day. I focus on the people and the moments that make your day the moment of a lifetime.
Your wedding memories deserve to be treasures you pass on to future generations.
I am very relaxed in my approach on the day, blending in the background most of the time, yet highly organised for any group photographs you would like. I am fearless in my pursuit to capturing amazing photos and known for my climbing roofs or laying down in the middle of roads to get the shot! I love getting creative in the evening with magical night shots that wow your wedding album..
My mum will tell you, I have always had a passion for people and photography, taking my first photos when I was 4 years old. I feel truly blessed to have been able to craft out a career that I absolutely love ...
My happy place is being with you at your wedding, photographing the moments you could so easily miss or not even know have happened!
(A very close 2nd place is with my family!)
My family is so very important to me and I am blessed that they support me in all that I do .. even the crazy adventures we go on for a family photo shoot!
When I am not working! I love Cooking, Yoga and Travel. In a past life I was a Photo Manager on 5 Star Cruise lines .. meeting people and traveling the World opened my young eyes to the most amazing experiences.. so if you are looking for some advice on Honeymoon Destinations just ask!
I hope you will enjoy learning more about my style and work as you take a look around my site I am an open book so if you have a question please ask.

Knowing what you want from your wedding photographer is key to the success of your day.
For the most part I am quietly photographing your day, the moments and people you treasure most. When it comes to family group photographs I will organise everyone calmly and efficiently.
My aim is the create these treasured memories but in a way where you and your guests can enjoy the reception.
One major point to consider is that no other wedding supplier will spend more time with you than your wedding photographer, so having a friendly face who knows what you want and can guide you throughout the day, in the words of one of my bride's...
"Having Julia photograph your wedding is like having your best friend beside you, who just happens to be an expert in wedding planning .. Julia will go to no end of lengths to create the memories while also ensuring you and your guests have the best day. Having Julia as our wedding photographer was by far the best decision we made."

Time is the one thing there never seems to be enough of on a wedding day. The importance of keeping to time is key to a stress free day.. Yes there will be morning butterflies and moments of emotion, but keeping to time really helps your day flow.
As I know the timings of your day, if I see time slipping away I will gently nudge you along giving you time updates and if necessary give the bridesmaids and groomsmen a nudge to get ready
Weddings tend to be the one time all the family is together, so perfect for the traditional family group photographs
By us planning these together we breeze through them giving you the time to spend with your guests..
I am sure you will hear it from friends who are already married that you get to spend little time together.. That being said I suggest taking small amounts of time out of your day to spend together.
We can use this time to get some beautiful photographs of you while you get to spend quality time just the two of you.
I will always guide you on how to stand and where and when to look at the camera and when to just enjoy being together.. I love capturing candid moments but also ensure you have the perfect photographs with your dress laid out in all its glory..
How better to end your wedding day story with some magical night photography ... I always say the last photo of the day is for me .. my time to take 5 minutes and create some magic for you .. these are the best ending photographs to your wedding album and look stunning as amazing wall art and will most certainly get noticed when hung proudly on your wall.
When the day is over and all you have left are your memories and photographs, I will guide you through the best way to preserve the story of your day. Whether that be with a stunning custom made wedding album or beautiful wall art pieces, my job as your wedding photographer continues long after your wedding day is over.

“Photographer: one an only – Julia Walters (Jules) from Fairytale Wedding Photography
We first met Jules at Knebworth Wedding Fair – We had spoken to several other photographers that evening but nobody else even came close. Jules is an excellent photographer, not only incredibly good at what she does but also an exceptional lady. Jules doesn’t just take photos, she creates a story. It’s not only Julia’s talent and professionalism, which stands out undisputedly, but her enthusiasm, warm and friendly character, patience and ability to capture the atmosphere of the occasion, all this is what made her perfect for us. Julia is simply amazing – she ‘got’ us, she is fun, generous with her time and energy and genuinely loves what she does! Little crazy – in the best possible way! – she even laid down on the grass to capture our reflection in a pond!
We can honestly say working with Jules is an absolute pleasure – looking at our photos we get to re-live our wedding, the fun and the love of our families and friends celebrating – memories we will cherish and treasure forever!”

they are made with the eye, heart and head"

"It was honestly a pleasure to have had Julia as part of our wedding day, We could not have asked for a better photographer. Julia would do anything to get the perfect shot, and that included getting in a water feature as well as laying in the grass and on the gravel car park in the dark. Julia will go to any length to get the shot! All her hard work paid off, our wedding photos are all stunning and she captured our wedding day perfectly. Paul and I could not thank Julia enough, we love every single photo and our wedding album is so beautiful. We honestly could not recommend a more professional, caring, talented, most down to earth person to capture your special day!!"

We had the privilege of meeting Julia at St Albans wedding fair. From the moment we met the warmth and professionalism was so overwhelming and made the process so easy and enjoyable. On our wedding day Jules went above and beyond for us, she was truly amazing and we can’t thank her enough. Jules is the best photographer and such a wonderful person. All our wedding guests were complementing Jules on how friendly and professional she was. She kept the day on track and we even had guests who recently got married wishing they had booked her. We love our wedding photos so much! We can’t thank Jules enough for everything. She truly made our day perfect and captured every moment in our photos and we are so happy. Jules is simply the best!

"I met Julia at Hatfield wedding show and from that moment knew she was the photographer I wanted for my wedding, not only did I see beautiful photos that had been taken previously but also Julia was easy to talk to and made me feel like someone who was a friend at my wedding not a photographer. On the day my instincts were right not only have we got the most beautiful photos but so many of these were captured because she wasn't intrusive and was someone there to help even helping to sort out my dress. Julia was the perfect choice for us with two people that hate having their photo taken she managed to get shots of us relaxed and formal that we both like which is something that I didn't think was possible. We absolutely love our wedding photographs and the wonderful memories of our day"
