We believe that memories from your wedding day will stay with you and warm your soul during cold times like a plush blanket on a winter night. 


I studied journalism at school, but soon after immigrating to Canada 7 years ago I found that photography is the only universal language everyone can understand.

I have a calm personality and I can totally relate that this whole photography experience might seem a bit intimidating.

 It’s my job to put your at ease, to guide you in how to look
 natural and help you get genuine portraits of you and your loved one. You can trust me to have your back to make sure you look your best in your wedding photos.

I believe in marriage, commitment and putting family first. And I believe that the wedding day is not just a perfectly styled party, but a beginning of something bigger. 

I am married to my best friend since the teenage years Anton Park, who also happens to be an awesome cinematographer and a second half of our family business. 

I believe in all things timeless and use medium format film as a medium of choice for my photos, when possible. Nothing beats the texture, softness and classy look of film. 
I cry during speeches and I can’t help but fall love with each one of our couples.

ELIJAH & LACY
A SANTA BARBARA ENGAGEMENT

Hiring a highly skilled wedding photographer who was not going to resort to the “typical” bridal photo shoot poses was very important to us, as my husband is not very comfortable in front of the camera. One look at Julia Park’s website and I knew her unique, fresh, elegant, and thoughtful photographic style was a good match for us.

However, when I met Julia I knew she was our photographer! She takes the time to get to know the couple. Not just their wedding style/theme, but she genuinely wants to know about how you met, what you enjoy doing in your spare time and works the unique aspects of your relationship into your photography sessions. I am happy to say that our engagement and wedding pictures represent us!

Working with Julia is like working with a long-time friend, she is dedicated to making your time with her meaningful, personalized and as non-intrusive as possible. She was amazing at setting up my husband and my first look, she even captured an impromptu first look with my father - which I will cherish to this day. Julia was amazing at pulling together large groups of family for pictures, and overall just understood my husband and my vision for our wedding (March 2014). To this day, I still get butterfly’s and tear up at some of the amazing shots that Julia captured.
We cannot thank Julia and her wonderful husband Anton enough for sharing in our wedding journey! You will have no regrets hiring Julia Park Photography, and I would recommend her business to anyone I know. We can’t thank you enough Julia!

"WORKING WITH JULIA IS LIKE WORKING WITH A LONG-TIME FRIEND..". 

Alia and Jamie

My husband and I hired Julia and Anton to capture our wedding day. From the very first time we spoke with Julia we knew we wanted to work with her. She was very responsive, professional, friendly, and she made us feel so comfortable. We could not be happier with the photos and video we have from our special day. They captured all the small details, candid moments and every emotion, which we get to relive every time we look at them. Only a few days after our wedding, while we were on our honeymoon, we received a teaser video which was such a treat! 
We would highly recommend this talented duo to capture any special occasion

"They captured all the small details, candid moments and every emotion, which we get to relive every time we look at them...". 

Sara and Daniel

Picking the right photographer was incredibly to us and we could not be happier with our choice. We both hate hate hate the typical, posed, cheesy photos that are unfortunately way too common in wedding photography. We knew from her website, that Julia would give us the opposite of these things. Julia and Anton were so great. 

 Such easy-going, friendly people but so professional. The shots were beautiful, candid, and genuine. We also received our images so quickly! So many of them too! My favourite was our golden-hour pictures. 

Julia was amazing at directing us (which is important because I definitely wouldn't call myself a natural in front of the camera) but she never actually posed us. It all just felt really natural and comfortable. I look through them all the time and can't wait to show my kids one day.

Would recommend these guys in a heartbeat.

I just wanted to write to say what absolutely beautiful pictures you took of my daughter’s wedding. 
I’m sitting here watching the video you sent and it makes me cry every time I watch it. 

You are a true artist. The song you chose was perfect – so touching. I can’t say enough great things about you and your husband. You took beautiful pictures while at the same time you were so unobtrusive the whole day of the wedding. 

Most of the time I didn’t even realize you were there. Yet, somehow you managed to capture the day exquisitely. I can’t compliment you enough or more importantly thank you enough for capturing the day and letting us relive it over and over again. I am in your debt.
Thanking you sincerely

Donna, mother of the bride

 Julia has such a talent and great eye for taking photos. She didn't just take pictures but captured all the wonderful moments, emotions and memories at our wedding. 

She did a stunning job on our engagement photos as well, we couldn't be happier! Her and her husband Anton were such a pleasure to work with and were very patient and attentive to all the fine details.

They were always professional and really knew what they were doing. What also amazed us as well was her quick turnaround time with the photos. This just shows her dedication to her work and commitment to her clients. 
 I wish we could keep her as our secret so we can make sure she's available for our future family photo shoots, but great talent will always be discovered! Thank you again Julia for the wonderful job you did and we hope to work with you again!

Diana - mother of the bride

Everyone feels differently about engagement sessions. Let’s just say that some couples are more exited about them than others. And we get it. There have been a lot of “engagement sessions” gone wrong on the web lately.

The thing is, your engagement session doesn’t have to be tacky. There’s nothing too forced about it. By now you probably know that we aren’t fans of cheesy stuff. For us, it’s just two people in love hanging out together. It can be as elaborate (gown, tux, and clifftop) or as simple (sundress, jeans, and your backyard) as you like. Forget the awkward poses you’ve seen in the past. Don’t let them draw you away from getting some real-life photos of your soon-to-be family—just the two of you, or the three of you, including pup ;). All things aside, engagement is a one-of-a-kind time in your life, and it’s pretty awesome.

So why not document it?

 Here are some other reasons it’s a good idea to have an engagement session:
 - It helps you feel more relaxed in front of the camera on your wedding day. It really does. Most of our couples are not huge fans of being in front of the lens. And I get it. Having an engagement session done is a tremendous confidence booster for the wedding day. You’ll see that you look good in your engagement photos, and you’ll have no fears leading up to your wedding day. Many of our brides try to coordinate their trials for makeup and hair with the engagement session so that they can see how their makeup will look in photos and make adjustments if necessary
 - It brings you closer to your photographers. I know it sounds kinda creepy, but it’s actually true. We get to know each other a lot more after the session. You get to see how I work, I get to see how you interact with each other. It’s a new level of connection.

 - On a practical side, you can use those images for many purposes, including creating a guest book and save-the-date cards, posting on your wedding website, displaying in your reception cocktail area, etc. 

Engagement sessions

At the end of one client meeting, my bride asked the following: “You’ve seen many weddings. What would be your biggest piece of advice for us?”

 "Remember what it’s all about,” I answered without thinking.

 In all the craziness leading up to the day, and all the events happening on the day, it’s surprisingly easy to forget why you are doing all this.

 We adore couples with amazing style.
 We get excited about beautiful flowers.
 Wedding dresses are my weak spot.
 BUT all this is NOT what your wedding day is about.
 You are marrying your soulmate. Someone who gets you without words.
 Someone who looks at you the way no one else ever will.
 You are lucky to have your loved ones there to witness it. Your friends to give you hugs and to cry tears of joy.
 Be present
. Celebrate.
 Remember what it’s all about.
 We love taking the couple and no one else with us for some photos because, honestly, we want to give you time to be alone on that day.
There will be moments when I’ll put you in good light and ask you to just be, to snuggle, to have a little chat, to take it all in. Don’t let the photos you “need” to get dictate how the day will go.
 Some might be surprised, but we don’t want photography to dictate anything, really. We want you—the real you, relaxed, happy, not afraid to laugh out loud or shed a tear even if you see that we are capturing all that.

For that is what we are there for. Then, at the end of the day, you will be able to say sincerely, “This was a perfect day.” And, “Those photos really show how we felt that day.”
