Whether Virginia is special to you already or is a bucket list destination, I'd absolutely LOVE to help you explore Virginia for your elopement day. I've worked with couples all over Virginia, exploring the Northern Virginia such as Old Town Alexandria to chasing waterfalls at Great Falls National Park, to hiking the breathtaking trails of Shenandoah National Park, to kicking it on the beach with a romantic luxury picnic in Virginia Beach.
I have a laid-back approach to elopements and photography. My goal is to make your wedding day about you and your relationship, creating a unique and stress-free day.
It's about planning a FUN, adventurous, and luxurious experience. This is not a photoshoot with awkward smiles after your 1 hour courthouse wedding. This is you wanting to do something different and intentionally designing a perfect day just for you, celebrating your marriage the way YOU want that blends luxury and adventure so that your wedding is a true representation of your relationship.

Let’s write the most epic story you’ll still be raving about 50 years from now.
2. Virginia marriage laws are strict. Make sure to follow the rules and apply for a marriage license from the Circuit Court Clerk's office and then you'll need to find an officiant. Virginia doesn't allow just anyone to marry you.
1. Choose to elope during the week at popular locations such as Shenandoah National Park as weekends are usually super busy. Sunrise hikes will pretty much always private. Vendors and elopement venues might even have weekday discounts!
3. There are SO many great adventure elopement locations across Virginia, so my advice is ask yourself what kind of scenery do you want? Virginia really does have it all: Mountains, beach, waterfalls, forests, lakes. BUT not all of those locations are nearby so choosing 1-2 top scenery options is best.

"I love her mix of editorial, photojournalism, and fine art in her photography. She delivered photos lighting fast and had so many to choose from! The precious moments she captured will be cherished forever and share them with family, friends, and future children. I highly recommend Juliana as your photographer! "
-Grace & Edd
"The photos were unbelievable and we had so much fun! My fiancé usually hates photos but even he said he fun with Juliana. She made us feel so comfortable and we were just able to laugh and have fun. Thank you for everything, Juliana. I will definitely be recommending you to everyone I know!"
-Maya & Nick
"She was so professional and easy going all at the same time. In the weeks before our ceremony she guided us on what we might need and was supportive of every idea to help further that this day was about us. On the day of she let us do our thing and made my husband and I feel like naturals in front of the camera. Our love really shined through in all the shots we’ve seen so far and our friends and family who weren’t present for our elopement got to enjoy the photos right away and didn’t miss a thing."
-Ashley & Dee
We loved working
Juliana is incredible!
Juliana was beyond amazing to work with!
"She made us feel so comfortable. She was patient, kind, and observant. She had every detail mapped out. We asked for specific types of shots and she went above and beyond to make sure it not only happened, but was executed perfectly for us. Her editing style is emotional and you can truly feel the love -- all while making sure to stay true to you. If you are looking for a photographer who will go the extra mile for you, Juliana is your girl. We can't thank her enough for the memories we have because of her."
