I'm Juli Bonell - Portrait & Wedding Photographer.

You could easily say that I'm a bit eclectic; an outgoing introvert who's obsessed with white mocha-caramel lattes, travelling, history, Disneyland, true crime, zombies
& binge watching the latest series.
I see beauty in urban decay, and I love yoga just
as much as I love singing loudly in my car
with the windows down.
(Let's just say that last one's not pretty.)

Thanks for visiting my blog. Feel free to take a look around and connect and chat with me about your photography needs. Enjoy!

hello + welcome!

Hey there!

Brittany & Troy had a wedding that could have been straight out of a Disney fairytale,  complete with baby hummingbirds hiding in their nest above the portraits. Brittany even naturally referred to Troy as her “Prince” several times in both their Engagement Session at Tumwater Falls, as well as during their wedding day.
Here are just a few of the images from their magical storybook wedding.

There were happy tears right from the beginning, starting with the moment the Bride’s father came in to see her, to the Groom’s blindfolded and not-so-private moment before the ceremony. There were even more tears at the first sight of the Bride as she walked down the isle, and even during the toasts and dances! 

“My dad once said there are plenty of fish in the sea. So I went online to plentyoffish.com and cast my reel. After a couple of throw backs. I finally reeled in myself a keeper. He was the perfect fish in the sea.” ~Brittany 

Troy took a special moment with his handsome, young ring bearer just before the ceremony…

… as did the Bride’s Father, as he gave his daughter away.

I promise you, I have never seen a ceremony full of so much laughter… and tears. 

No wedding ceremony is complete without the kiss….

…and maybe a secret handshake.

Snow White had her forest animals, Cinderella, her mice…. Brittany? She had her Minions…. and they were everywhere! (Secretly making my day.) I think the only thing that outnumbered the Minions, were the references to the Bride’s love of the perfect Mac-N-Cheese and the number of corks continuously interrupting the toasts.
Truly, so much laughter throughout this wedding !

Instead of a guestbook, the family and friends all wrote their wishes to the couple on a beautifully made bench, given by the Groom’s Mother, in remembrance of Troy’s brother, Branden, who had made a similar bench while in High School.

Oh, and yes, of course this Princess and her Prince honeymooned at Disneyland!

Thanks Brittany and Troy for including me in your special day!

And many thanks to the creative team who made the wedding so special…
