Julie Abreu is a professional photographer based in Belgrave, Victoria
I am a documentary wedding and family photographer, from France, who now lives in Belgrave. I started my career in teaching literature, and since a couple of years I use this artistic vibe to tell stories via photography. I learned photography while travelling around Europe and Australia and this is on the road that I learned how much I loved capturing unposed, authentic, honest memories.
Documentary photographers don't pose or direct clients: they observe, and discuss with them before the session to create striking images, that only look like them. It is not about replicating the same clichés that you see everywhere, but about understanding how unique your family is and document real moments of your life. You won't hear me say "Cheeeeeese!" I will be looking for true smiles, not awkward ones!
Maybe you would like to remember your routine with your children, after or before school, Sunday barbecues, or finger painting afternoons? Then this is the photography style for you. It is all about telling a story, yours, and celebrating how beautiful your everyday can be.
Documenting weddings is just the best. It is about capturing all the emotions that come to you during your big day: the fun of the dance, the joy when the couple says yes, the tears at the altar... I follow the bride and the groom from the preparations in the morning to the reception, and my images tell their story. When it is about creating couple pictures, I still do not pose the bride and the groom. For them to act natural, I take them to a more private place, away from the guests. It is a very intense moment for them to actually enjoy their first hours as a married couple, before going back to their families and friends to party! View More...
