We heart Captured Memories Photography

We were first introduced to Captured Memories Photography almost two years ago when Julie Hill photographed a wedding here. The decor was beautiful and ornate, the cake was fabulous and quirky, the bride was stunning and even the groom looked dapper. But when we received the photos…they were simply breathtaking. From the unique angles to the classic shots, we were taken aback as we looked through all the photos—each one better than the last. Julie has an exquisite eye for detail and the big picture at the same time.

For over 25 years, Julie has had a love for photography. Stemming from her childhood memories of her mother snapping photos of her family, she decided to pursue photography full-time in 2007. That very same year, she was recognized by International Society of Photography as an Outstanding Photographer. It’s a pretty awesome accomplishment to be awarded with something so prestigious in her first year as a professional! Julie has developed quite a magnificent reputation for photojournalistic shooting—we love her intimate shots of the brides and grooms. She photographs anywhere from 15-30 weddings a year plus numerous corporate events, senior portraits, family sessions, maternity shots and newborns. She has even shot the UTSA Cheerleaders official photos!

From watching her interact with her clients to working with her on a professional level, it really doesn’t get any better working than with Julie Hill. Her prompt return of phone calls/emails and really listening to her clients makes for a fantastic relationship. Plus, her pricing is a very affordable investment: $1100-$2550. We sat down and asked her a couple of quick questions that we thought we’d share:

{PL} What is your favorite part about shooting weddings?

{JH} Everything! They are so exciting and everyone is full of energy and happy. I have one of the most important jobs of the wedding and no money can ever buy the happiness and joy I feel when providing my clients with those pictures and telling their story.

{PL} Why is photography a good investment for couples?

{JH} I feel very passionate about this subject.  I didn’t hire a photographer. I didn’t feel it was important at the time. I have been happily married to my best friend for 23 years and I only have a few snapshots of one of my most important days of my life. Don’t cheat yourself—make the investment.

{PL} Why do you like shooting at Plaza Lecea?

{JH} What makes a person beautiful? It’s in the heart…and that’s how I feel about Plaza Lecea. You are not only getting a beautiful building with the most stunning views, but you are getting the heartbeat. That’s everyone working there is in complete harmony with each other to provide you with everything that you’ve always hoped and dreamed for on your wedding day.

{PL} Anything else you’d like to share?

{JH} Make sure you are comfortable with your photographer, that way you will be relaxed and not even know he or she is there. Also, if you hire a male photographer, remember he will be there with you as you are getting ready (ie changing).

We seriously think you should consider Captured Memories Photography for your special day. You will not be disappointed! Here is her contact info:
