About Julia Duke Photo

Hello, I'm Julia!

First, let's cover the basics: I live in Bend, Oregon with my husband and son, but am a traveler at heart, so any chance I get you'll be sure to find me with either my boys, girl-tribe, or clients, roadtripping, romping through the desert, jet-setting, or camping along a river. But regardless of where, you can be sure it's a magical spot fit for a photoshoot and adventures-alike, as I'm never not photographing!

Now for the details: Though I shot my first wedding in 2007, I've been documenting the world around me ever since I can remember; chasing and playing with light, continually in awe of the landscapes around me and the way we could interact with them to create something magic.To me, photography is so much more than just a photo, or a memory even, it's an experience and an adventure. It's a way to connect further with yourself and those that you love. It's the feeling you get when you see the world around you comes alive with light; the dust as you run through the desert, beams of light through the trees as you discover new places, rushing water as you dip your toes into the river or ocean, or the laughter you see on your childs face as he's flung in the air, joyfully crashing back down into his fathers arms. Since having a family of my own, I see and feel the importance of documenting these moments--those incredbily treasured stages in our lives.  

As if gifting you with a little piece of magic that you can hold onto forever. 

So, now that you know a little bit about me and why I'm here, take a peak around & don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or would like to work with me! And whether it be a wedding, family, maternity or newborn shoot, portaits, engagement, or anything else you'd like documented, I'm ready to create something magic with you!
