Interaction is straightforward, helpful, and stress-free

“We love the professional and well composed portraits that Julie consistently provides for us time and time again. Her turnaround time for getting proofs and finished products to us is prompt, and interaction with her is straightforward, helpful, and stress-free. Julie is very accommodating to our schedule, even with very little notice. We will gladly continue to patronize her business for our photographic needs!”

Personally select my favorite pictures

“I absolutely enjoyed my photo shoot, Julie made me feel completely comfortable and at ease—at the same time she is thoroughly professional and the quality of her work shows through in every shot. I appreciated the chance to personally select my favorite pictures right there and communicate directly with Julie before leaving the session.”

Patient with the novice as well as the experienced photographer

“I have attended many classes taught by Julie and have greatly increased my knowledge in each and every one of them. She is very patient with the novice as well as the experienced photographer. I also attended Julie’s Oregon Workshop which was amazing. I feel it brought my photography to a whole new level. Thank you Julie.”

True professionalism

“When my college back in Kansas needed a professional portrait of me for a special award, JDP Photography was who I called. I had limited time so Julie agreed to meet me at Tustin City Hall before a meeting I was to attend (she was early) and made me feel like I was in the finest studio. She had everything all set up and the entire process only took a few minutes. Thanks Julie for your true professionalism.”

Chuck Puckett
former Mayor, City of Tustin


Process is so organized and efficient

“Julie’s process for producing a professional photograph is so organized and efficient. The time flies while you are having your photograph taken, looking at all the photos on a large screen and picking out the best one for your purpose. Julie makes it look easy, a testament to her expertise and focus on your intent.”

Sheila Ivary

Responsive high quality results

“Julie is responsive and provides high quality results. She has an uncanny ability to notice every detail and her efforts are reflected in the quality of her work. She is amazing at making you feel relaxed and comfortable, while being thoroughly professional. We will happily come to her again for corporate portraits.”

Julie saved my camera’s life

“Julie saved my camera’s life…I was ready to throw my camera through a window. I couldn’t figure out if the camera was the problem or if it was “user error” but I never seemed able to get the shots I wanted. Julie patiently led me through the anatomy of my camera and proceeded to teach me how to frame the shot, minimize background “noise”, and focus on what was important in the photo.”
