Testimonials

all we can say is WOW!!!!!!! we are so completely satisfied that we have no words to express the magnificence of the pictures that were taken! The moments that were captured were amazing and has allowed us to relive that day over and over again! We have looked through the pictures so many times and are trying to figure out which ones are our "favorites", let me tell you that it is super hard! We will try and get back to you as soon as we can agree on the 50. Thank you again so much for your focus and your time on our special day! Nathalie & Paul

I really can’t describe how incredible, amazing, talented, artful, professional and kind Justin and Julie at Hulse Photography are!!! Our wedding photos look like they came straight off of a Fairytale Wedding Film Set!! The shots Justin got were absolutely incredible in every way, breathtaking, simply remarkable!!!! We gave an extra special thank you to Justin for going the extra mile in every way and hitting HIGH above the mark on all our special "pose" requests. Thank you a million times to Justin and Julie both for everything you have done for us and giving us these magical memories. I told my husband, "I barely ever saw Justin, he was never in the way, how did he get all these pictures?" and he said, "He was in the bushes and hanging from trees!" I laughed because I should have known that's where Justin would be! He’s a photography genius, the passion he has for his work shines through in all the photos and everything you could want in a wedding photographer!! I found Hulse Photography 3 years before our wedding, I was just browsing on a website and was enamored by the pictures of the site, so I went to the copyright and saw Hulse Photo. I immediately searched the internet for their website and stocked their website and blog drooling over Justin’s style of pictures for the next 2 years!! I couldn’t wait to book him for our wedding (that wasn’t even planned yet but I knew was in my near future). They are the best in the business!!! 2 years after I found them on the internet I was engaged and called to book them for our wedding before I even had the venue booking confirmed. Julie was so flexible with the photo packages and meeting our budget, but still giving us the maximum for our money. She is the sweetest woman on the planet and really understands a bride’s vision!! The first time we spoke we spent a couple of hours just chatting on the phone about weddings and girl stuff as if we had been friends for years. She suggested we do engagement pictures as a trial run for our wedding day and WOW am I thrilled we did!! Not only did we have the most amazing and fun day with Justin prancing around Down Town Temecula like celebrities, but we had tons of INCREDIBLE pictures as a happy couple to show to our family and friends, and Justin taught us how to pose and got us both to feel relaxed and natural in front of the camera!! It was the best suggestion Julie could have made and it was VERY affordable too! As a special added bonus Julie sent us our photo disc in the most beautiful hard cover bound DVD case I have ever seen with an incredible metallic picture of us on the front! When I saw it in the mail I was floored, I had never seen anything like that before!!8 months later when it came time for our wedding I spoke to Justin several times to tell him all my creative photo ideas and he reassured me that he would make sure he got all of those important shots. He also gave me great advice coming from a 3rd party’s point of view which really helped me to stay calm and enjoy my wedding day. I can’t thank him enough just for reminding me months in advance to enjoy the entire day and to just tell yourself whatever happens, happens!! It was because of that advice that I was cool as a cucumber all day and really couldn’t stop smiling!!! Nothing went wrong in my mind, the day was perfect!!! When we returned from our honeymoon the online gallery was waiting for us and all I can say is WOW!!! The pictures turned out AMAZING!!! What a great way to for us to spend our first jet lagged day home! We really can't thank them enough for all the hard work and effort that went into our pictures, and how stunning they turned out!Jessica & Cody

Justin and Julie,Thank you for capturing LOVE and HAPPINESS in it's purest form. Our wedding is being called "EPIC" and your photos let Echo and I relive every moment. Truly amazing and beautiful.Ramon and Echo

We're still off on our honeymoon (one more week in Rome!), but just had to tell you how magnificent these photos are and how grateful we are for your incredible talent and effort on our wedding day! We simply can't wait to see all of these in more detail (we've only been able to see thumbnails on these slow European computers...). You truly captured the essence and magic of our day, and we can't thank you enough!!!Love,Mr. and Mrs. Curtis

Julie & Justin,The photos are amazing! Justin captured the mood & emotion just as I wanted. I've heard nightmares from others of how they hated their photos & I am truly pleased with how wonderful mine are. Justin, you are definitely in the right profession. Your creative energy is contagious & inspired everyone. You made us all feel so comfortable in front of the camera. Your eye for framing a photo is right on & all of our images are truly unique. I'm so pleased I found you two! What a powerful duo you are! Thanks for all the time & energy you put into my wedding. Our photos are exquisite & exactly what we wanted plus so much more. Keep up the excellent work! Best regards, Lara & Nick

Dear Justin and Julie, Wow...you are amazing!!! I cannot thank you enough Justin for all the time, energy, physical sacrifice, attention to detail, etc. that you gave to photographing Annie and Jason. And they all had sooo much fun doing the photo shoot. I am so grateful that somewhere along the way your name crossed our desk. I can't wait to see the finished photos...I know they will be spectacular!!! You are so professional and worth every penny we spent. I didn't see you to say goodbye the evening of the reception. I am hoping you got something to eat because I planned on that for you. Jason told me he forgot to give you the sandwich we made for you to eat during the afternoon part of the shoot. I will always highly recommend you to everyone. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!Sincerely,Cindy LeSueur

Thank you so much - Tim and I both felt so comfortable with you - which is rare for us to feel when it comes to being in front of a camera... so, that says a LOT about what an incredible job you do. We can't wait for April 9th when we get to work with you again!We just saw the blog too, and absolutely LOVE it!!! That shot is amazing - we're going to have the coolest thank-you cards ever. Thank you so much. Can't wait to see the other pics from today now - how fun!!!We'll be in touch again soon - just wanted to say a big thanks before we headed off to bed (with sweet dreams of vineyards and motorcycles running through our heads!) :-)Warm regards,Anne & Tim

Justin & Julie,We received our album and absolutely love it! It is Gorgeous! Thank you so much for taking such great care of us, both during our wedding day and thereafter. You guys are both sweethearts and total pros! A perfect combo.Thanks again for everything! Best, Janet & Ron

Hi Justin!Thank you so much for all of your hard work at our wedding. People are still commenting on how impressed they were with your professionalism and dedication to the event. We just returned from our honeymoon on Thursday and were delighted to see the gallery from the wedding was already up! We have browsed through just about all of the photos you posted and we are amazed! It has been so fun seeing our day and how it played out. You made the day even better for us and we could not be happier about having you be part of such a great event!Thank you, thank you! We will be talking to you soon so we can put the album together :)Have a great day!David and Leighann

Garrett and I are so pleased with my research in finding the right photographer for one of the most memorial times of our lives. Not only did I get it right on the money as far as quality, creativity, and detail. We felt completely comfortable working with Justin. He was so fun, energetic, genuine, and had such an easy going personality. You can really tell he has a deep passion and appreciation for the work that he does. There is absolutely nothing more we could have asked for in a photographer. I really dislike being in pictures and, I am very self conscious and critical about any photo I am in. So this session was a big deal because I had to be one of the main factors for the shoot and had no control over it. For me to have felt so comfortable and relaxed with Justin was amazing. We are really glad we did the engagement session to loosen up and get an idea on what to expect on our wedding day(as far as pictures). Im sure you have heard this stuff a thousand times but one more time just makes it betterJ. Seriously, I would recommend Hulse Photography to anyone and everyone I know! Thank you,Jennifer

Dear Justin "Nikon Ninja"You are a true professional - you handled that circus of a crowd like no on else - And it was a circus! Thank you for being our photo ninja, one-man swat team, consummate professional. How you managed those shots sespite the obstacles is beyond me but I swear I saw you swinging in the trees. You must have lost ten pounds. You are the best and thank you forever.Theresa (Mother of the Bride)

I got the wedding album in the mail last Thursday. It is so beautiful, and I couldn't be happier. You and Justin did a great job... you make a great team. Everyone is ooh-ing and aah-ing, about the book and the quality of the photos. I absolutely love it. Thank you, thank you, thank you. After the day is over, the cake is eaten, the flowers are wilted, and the years go by, the pictures are what is left. And when I look at them, I feel just as I felt on my wedding day. I can feel the laughter and the warmth and the joy. So, thank you. Thank you. Thank you. You come highly recommended by me!~Jen
