Hello! I’m Julie Fiebig. During the weekdays, you will find me spending time with my loving husband, playful Jack Russell, busy with my insurance career, and being a fitness fanatic but on the weekends, I’m a wedding photographer’s right hand women!
Growing up, my mom was a local senior photographer who used our 120 acre farm in Middleville, Mi as her backdrop! She encouraged my creative side, all starting with a Christmas present of a Fisher Price plastic film camera to teaching me her medium format film camera so I could enter photographs at the Barry County Fair!
Photography again peeked my interest when I was looking for my wedding photographer! I even joked with my husband about registering for a Nikon D5000 which he than surprised me with for my birthday. In the beginning, I was happy with what I saw using auto but after reading and researching, I realize I needed to learn how to truly use my camera!
I decided to take the very class that taught my mom the basics of photography at Grand Rapids Community College. I learned more than I could ever imagine but when it was over it left me wanting more! I than took Photoshop courses at Grand Rapids Community College and found workshops put on by local photographers that helped scratch that learning itch. The biggest opportunity was when I was given a chance to assist and second shoot for an amazing Grand Rapid’s wedding photographer.
Since that day, I’ve my passion is wedding photography! Going in to my 6th year and over 55 weddings as an assistant wedding photographer, I look forward to capturing a bride and grooms special day. Being chosen to get to share in this event is something extraordinary. Each wedding holds a special place in my heart!
