I used to be Yuliya Selyuzhitskaya, now I'm Julie Gomez (what marriage can do). Complete different person now? I'd say so. Still real emotional though, but I use that to my advantage in the industry of capturing love.
I lead with my emotion. That's what makes me, me. I think it is a powerful tool. I am not the best with words and describing what I feel verbally, but I can show you through a film.
On a wedding day, I look first at the big picture & what is going on, then very quickly steer towards the micro moments. The way your heartbeat is elevating, the perspiration in your hands, the bones of your décolleté, the jawline, the tear on grandmas face in the back corner of the room.
During the editing process is when the footage comes to life. I took piano & theory lessons for 7 years and even began teaching at one point. This experience allowed me to have an ear for chords & ability to mix music. If the song choice doesn't move me, I can't begin.
Every storyline/couple is unique, so every film will be different. I don't follow a "structure" or how a "wedding film" should be. Instead, I begin honing in on my creative vision to best allow you to feel your story in the end. If you get those little bumps on your arms, if your eyes begin to water, I did my job - and for that, I am so indescribably thankful.

• DO YOU TRAVEL?
YES OF COURSE! I AM BASED IN ATLANTA, GEORGIA BUT I TAKE A LIMITED AMOUNT OF DESTINATION WEDDINGS PER YEAR.
• HOW DO I SECURE MY WEDDING DATE?
WHEN YOU + I BOTH SIGN THE CONTRACT AND THE 50% RETAINER IS PAID, YOUR DATE IS BOOKED! THE REST IS DUE 1 MONTH BEFORE YOUR WEDDING.
• Do you offer aerial footage?
YES I DO! DRONE FOOTAGE CAN BE ADDED ONTO ANY PACKAGE! IT IS IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT I CAN’T FLY IN RESTRICTED AREAS + UNFORTUNATE WEATHER.
• What is your turnaround rate?
One-Two weeks for a Teaser Film. Three Months for a Highlight Film.
• Do you offer Custom packages?
Yes. Send me a message and lets chat!
• I want to reschedule my wedding date. What are the next steps?
If you’ve already booked me and paid your retainer fee, I would move your retainer to your new wedding date (if I am available and if it takes place within 6 months of the calendar year.) If you’d like to reschedule your wedding date for a date over the 6 month mark, you forfeit your initial retainer fee and a new one would need to be created for your new wedding date.
"JULIE WAS AN ABSOLUTE DREAM COME TRUE WHEN IT CAME TO OUR WEDDING VIDEO. FROM START TO FINISH SHE WAS SO THOUGHTFUL WITH EVERY DETAIL. SHE TRULY WANTED TO MAKE SURE OUR WEDDING FILM CAPTURED US AS A COUPLE AND OUR STORY. HER IMPRESSIVE CREATIVE SKILLS ALONG SIDE HER THOUGHTFULNESS AND KINDNESS THROUGH THE WHOLE PROCESS MAKES HER A WEDDING VENDOR THAT IS UNMATCHED, IN MY OPINION. HER WORK WAS VERY WELL DONE AND DONE IN TIMELY MANNER, WHICH I KNOW ALL BRIDES APPRECIATE SO MUCH. I WOULD RECOMMEND JULIE TO EVERY PERSON WHO COMES MY WAY (AND HAVE)! THANK YOU, AGAIN AND AGAIN!!!"

LAST MINUTE MY BROTHER WAS LOOKING FOR A WEDDING VIDEOGRAPHER AND JULIE WAS ABLE TO MOVE HER SCHEDULE AROUND TO BE ABLE TO CAPTURE THEIR BIG DAY... WHICH WAS SO APPRECIATED. SHE’S SUPER SWEET, TALENTED AND PROACTIVE. I DEFINITELY RECOMMEND HER FOR ANYONE WHO IS LOOKING FOR A VIDEOGRAPHER THAT WILL REALLY GET YOUR EMOTIONS ROLLING WHEN YOU WATCH YOUR VIDEO!"
"JULIE WAS AN ABSOLUTE ANGEL TO WORK WITH, AND SHE IS SO SO TALENTED. THE PASSION SHE HAS FOR VIDEOGRAPHY RADIATES OFF OF HER FILMS AND YOU CAN FEEL THE ENERGY SHE PUTS IN BEHIND THE CAMERA. SHE IS CONSTANTLY CONTINUING TO PURSUE HIGHER EDUCATION IN THIS INDUSTRY AND WHEN YOU PAIR HER DRIVE WITH HER RAW INTENTIONALITY YOU GET PURE PERFECTION. EVERYTHING ABOUT MY WEDDING DAY WAS AN ABSOLUTE DREAM- IT’S ALL A BLUR AND JULIE PROVIDES SWEET SWEET LIVING, BREATHING MEMORIES."
