About Me



I am the Joey behind Joey Photo, Joelle Julian to be exact. I'm a wedding and portrait photographer and I live in San Diego, California. I do life with my adorkable husband Alex who serves in the Navy, which has allowed us to live in three states since we wed in 2012. It's a constant adventure which suits us perfectly. We would rather be moving than sitting still and change far from scares us. We are both from MinnesOOOOOta (it’s true, we really do talk that way) and are proud of it. I'm a lover of sentiment and the big wide world. I think family is pretty cool and should be cherished. I love to hear people's stories, especially the stories of how people fell in love. A thoughtful gesture goes a thousand miles with me. I'd rather listen than talk and the main reason I wake every morning is just to drink coffee out of my favorite mug. My secret loves are Broadway musicals and marvel comics. Mostly importantly, I think my life has been designed by God and I want to live it to His glory.

I love photography. I love the people it allows me to meet and the experiences it takes me on. I love that it constantly challenges me and keeps me learning every day. I love the squeal of joy that sneaks from my mouth when I’ve captured ‘the shot.’ Above all, I love the way a great photo makes me feel and how it speaks without words. For you I want to capture your emotion and joy and let it speak through the photograph, so when you look back, those same emotions will come rushing to greet you...

This is my gift and I want to share it with you.

1 Peter 4:10 “Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.”
