"Michael said you were good but he didn't say you would make me cry. The pictures are beautiful! SO MUCH FEELING. You have earned the right to be for henceforth our family photographer. Now I want to go out and tell everyone to use Julie and I will. Thank you so much for your kindness! You have an extraordinary gift." -Christopher, Utah
"Wow Julie! I am really impressed! I thought we were kind of crazy and out of control and yet you still managed to show us in our best light - thank you so much! Cole loved you as did the rest of the family. We will definitely work with you again - you are phenomenal!" -Valerie, Ca
"... I wanted to say thank you. It was a very beautiful experience for me. Your photographs are wonderful. I know a good shot when I see one and I was really impressed by the quality of your work. The song that you chose compliments your style to an impeccable degree. You made Le look so beautiful in that one shot. Thank you for that... she is a gorgeous girl and she deserves to have it captured. Thank you also for taking the energy to create eternal images of my beatiful nieces. I always want to remember them exactly like they are on your blog. Great work... "
"THANK YOU SOOOOO MUCH!!!! as always you know how to capture Edward and now the whole family. You are so amazing and talented it is always a pleasure to see you and we can never wait to see what you capture. As you know Ryan and I hate to take pictures, but you made it fun and easy. Ryan said it was the first time he did not mind it since you don't make it "uptight" its just fun and relaxed. I LOVED the sneak peek some of the pictures left me speechless and almost teary eyed. I can only imagine what the grandparents will think. We are so happy to have found you and can't wait for you to capture more of us in the years to come."
"Words can't even describe how much I stinkin love them. What a blessing your talent is to our family. You are awesome to have gotten so many great shots with my little wiggly worms. Love em, love em, love em!!!!"
-Tammy, San Diego
"Julie is an incredible photographer. She's not afraid to be hands-on to get the perfect shot! She did both our engagement and wedding photos and we could not have been happier. Not only were her shots great, but she got our proofs to us in no time at all. I can't wait to have babies so I can have Julie photograph them, too!"
-Haley, Huntington Beach
"We loved the pictures of our family that Julie took. In fact my husband was teary eyed when we viewed them and he saw one of himself and our son. We now refer to this picture as the "U2" picture as it looks like it belongs on the cover of one of the albums. He has this picture framed at work and he constantly gets comments on how amazing the photo is. I can't wait until our next sitting, Julie's pictures are amazing!"
-Suzanne, La Jolla
"Julie recently did a photo shoot for my family and son’s 2nd birthday. One of our friends referred us to Julie and we couldn’t have been more happy with the results. Not only did she meet us at our desired location on time, but she took the time to make sure we were able to get as many pictures of desired poses and locations we needed to pick the perfect one. We have gotten great reactions from our friends and used her photos to create a printed family album. I even have a friend out of state who is an accomplished photographer who commented to me that the pictures were outstanding. I highly recommend Julie, her professional approach and eye for what looks good."
-Jason, San Diego
"I trusted Julie with the photos for the most important day of my life. I was thoroughly pleased with the outcome. She captured every important moment and more on my wedding day, Not only did she do my wedding photos but she did my engagement photos as well, I know that I can look back on the photos and remember every detail of those days, all because Julie captured it. Thank you for everything! My husband and I love them and appreciate all she did for us."
"Julie is wonderful to work with and her product is outstanding. We have used her twice and have been thrilled with the results both times. We get compliments all the time on her photography that is up in our home. She does a great job of capturing our child's personality! Her rates are very reasonable and we love owning the rights to all our images and being able to print them as we wish. We highly recommend Julie Stainbrook and plan on using her for years to come!"
-Sarah, Carmel Valley
"I just wanted to let you know how great your photos were for the wedding I coordinated. I know it isn't often where coordinators email the vendors they used to put on an event and let them know how much they appreciated the quality of work they provided to their client but I believe in giving credit where credit is due. So again thank you for your wonderful pictures, your quality of work, and your professionalism. I look forward to working with you again."
-Danielle, San Diego
"I love watching you work because you are such a natural. You always make everyone feel so comfortable. I can’t wait to see the pictures! I was so impressed to watch you take such good care of the bride and groom. You got them plates of food and made sure they ate in a quiet place and even photographed that quiet, special moment! I’ve attended a lot of weddings but never seen that happen before!"
"Julie was patient and worked well with my baby. She has a way to capture the perfect moment. It was difficult to choose just a few pictures to print because they were all so good. I have referred her to many friends that were equally as happy with their pictures. We plan on using Julie for more family photos. "
-Danielle , Carmel Valley
"We had Julie take pictures of our 2 week old baby girl and were so happy that we did. She takes amazing pictures and really has a way of capturing the moment. It's so nice that she is willing to come to you and take pictures where ever you want. She is so sweet and makes you feel very comfortable. We look forward to having her come back to take family photos this summer. She is so good at what she does and you wont be unhappy"
"Thank you so much for our beautiful pictures! I can't believe how quickly you were able to turn them around, we really appreciate it. The photos are amazing and we had so much fun taking them with you...we've gotten tons of compliments not only on how great the pictures turned out but also on how professional you were at the wedding. Keith and I couldn't be happier with your services!"
-Quinn, San Diego
"Julie was able to capture some very sweet photos of our very very willful and wiggly 18-month-old toddler. We love sharing the photos with family and friends near and far. We look forward to another opportunity to capture our growing family in the coming months."
-LJ and Brent, San Diego
"We loved working with Julie. She was professional and very patient with our 2-year-old twins! Julie has a great eye for unique shots and knows how to take amazing pictures! We will be using her again!"
"She was recommended to me by a mutual acquaintance. I viewed her work and appreciated the posted rates and explanation of what I was purchasing. I also love having ownership of the pictures taken. Before I hired her, I was impressed by the emotion and artistry she captures in her pictures."
"After having the engagement photos and now viewing the "sneak peek" of my son's wedding, I know I choose well. She is a jewel to work with and my only regret is that it will be a year before my whole family is together again so we can have the long-awaited family picture. With her of course! Thanks Julie for being so talented"
-An avid Stainbrook photo fan, Luana Vogelsang, Irvine
"When I was looking for a photographer for my wedding in 11/08, I came across MANY names and companies. When I looked into Julie, I found someone that was simple and to the point, which is exactly what I wanted! When I first met with Julie, I knew that she was perfect! I love that fact that she is a small one person show. I love to support individuals that do what they love, which is exactly what Julie does. During my wedding, she was there when needed and then 'behind the scenes' the rest of the time. She made the guests feel comfortable capturing the continuos enjoyment throughout the entire event. I have recommended Julie to a few colleagues over past several months to use in their up coming weddings and I really hope that they do. I know that once my husband and I have Children, Julie will be the photographer of the continuos upcoming special events that we share as a family!
