Working with Joanna and knowing her go hand in hand she is someone you can be yourself around. She really can capture your spirit in a photo and always captures the inner beauty in people. She has been taking photos of my daughter for years and I am so blessed with all the wonderful prints that hang in my house. She also took pictures for my wedding and I was one happy bride. I get so many compliments on how beautiful my pictures are and how creative the photographer is. It was relaxing to me and my family to have Joanna at our wedding and we never felt rushed or inconvenienced by her, and I think that is a great quality to have in a photographer. Joanna is someone you can trust to get the job done with professionalism and personalization. I simply think she is the best and I would highly recommend her for any event. More...

I can't say enough amazing things about Julia's House and the level of expertise, professionalism, and co-creation of not one - but two truly amazing photo shoots for my life coaching business. Immediately, Joanna and her team put me at ease and like I said - co-created an amazing experience with me and the photos show! More...

Joanna was amazing! So professional and wonderfully creative. She is a true artist and my husband and I were so happy to that she was able to document our wedding. I have been very pleased with the photos and with the work that she did. She was at our event all day and was also able to bring a second shooter to help capture every little nuance of the day. I would recommend her to anyone and we really couldn't have been happier with the results! More...

Wonderful photos taken for our salon and personal portraits. Joanna gives good direction and ideas when asked, and also is open to listen and get the images you want. Highly recommend.

We hired Joanna to do our wedding, and it was a great experience! We had an outdoor May wedding at William O’Brien State Park, and I loved the creative shoots she took of my granddaughter with a caterpillar, my dress hanging from a tree, the bubbles catching the sunlight, and people gathering afterward and chatting. Joanna’s experience and professionalism showed as she set up the shoots, getting people organized, and including the young children. The quality of photos were excellent as well. I highly recommend Joanna and Julia’s House for your wedding photography. More...

The art of Joanna Gail at Julia's House surpassed my expectations and she will yours too. Joanna captured my daughter's inner beauty and outer beauty exquisitely. These photographs of my daughter were something I had always dreamed of doing, and Joanna made it happen. From the appointment booking to the final finished product, Joanna made the process fun and effortless. Turnaround time was expedient as well. Thank you Joanna! More...

Incredible! Natural, fresh.. Living photographs! Joanna and her husband Randal can capture the most special moments. They are willing to work with you, and make you feel comfortable. Great ideas, versatile, and spirited. She has done my senior photos and wedding photos, and I couldn't have chosen better. Thanks Joanna! More...

Joanna Gail is my go-to photographer for all life's beautiful moments! She always captures the beauty, love and joy in every event she has photographed for me, in a very wonderful way! Her artistic eye helps her to see things in a different way, offering a unique take to all the pictures she snaps! She is also a very loving person and holds my special days as her own, making sure to capture all of our most beautiful moments! I am so glad to have found you and now to be able to not only call you my photographer but also my friend!

If you are looking for a photographer with a warm spirit and a great eye for details, then you have found her!

Long story short- There was a big family gathering to celebrate my Grandma's 90th Birthday this summer. The one thing she asked for was to have a big family portrait taken (35 people). At the last minute we were informed that no one had found a photographer yet. I asked a close friend of mine who referred me to Julia's House. I am so GRATEFUL she did!

Joanna Gail of Julia's House came to our location and began asking questions about the family and the property. Joanna exudes a calm warmth that radiated through the entire photo session. She immediately made us feel comfortable and at ease in front of the camera - Not an easy feat for me! Her happy smile and attitude made it fun for ALL of us.

Joanna's artistic eye is fabulous because she manages to capture the more natural, personal moments that occur as well as the formal, posed photos. In our pictures, Joanna most DEFINITELY got shots that demonstrate the unique personalities in our family.

The final images turned out beautifully. I am very pleased. I will treasure these pictures forever. Thank you to Joanna Gail of Julia's House for giving my entire family the gift of these memories.

Joanna Gail did an absolutely amazing job on our wedding photography! The pictures are beautiful, both in quality and in content. She has an artistic eye and I loved that our wedding photographs aren't all of the typical generic poses you often see from other wedding photographers. Joanna has a natural talent to capture the beauty from any scene, and that is evident in all of our wedding photos. Kaleb and I planned our wedding to be classic and elegant and her work captured this theme perfectly. It is obvious to me that Joanna has a passion for photography and that passion comes through in her work. It was an honor to have her as our wedding photographer. More...

Joanna was the perfect photographer for my son's senior pictures. She made the experience a significantly memorable one in my relationship with my son. We had an amazing and fun time together and the pictures turned out AWESOME! She was able to capture my son's personality and interests in the best moments. I don't think I have ever been as happy with any professional photos we have ever had in our family. It was worth every penny and I will cherish the moment as much as the pictures themselves. I just can't wait to show them off! More...

You spend a great deal of time with your photographer on your wedding day. This is not something my husband and I thought about prior to booking Joanna to photograph our wedding, but I am so happy that we did! Our wedding-day portrait session was fun and low stress. She helped us plan how much time we would need so we would get the images we wanted while making time right after the ceremony to soak in the fact that WE'RE MARRIED! She knows weddings and she gave us great advice and captured the images we treasure. More...

Joanna is an amazing photographer with a highly-skilled photojournalistic eye. She has the ability to capture such beauty in her images, as well as intimate, quiet moments, and candid interactions. She took family portraits of me, my husband, our 1 1/2 year old daughter, and our one week old baby boy. She was able to work with us to find the perfect location and was patient and kind to our children. She's everything you'd want in a professional photographer. More...

Joanna was a joy to work with. She made our newborn picture session a great experience. She went out of her way to make us feel special and those feelings came alive in our photos! Joanna drove all the way from Stillwater to North Minneapolis for the session. Same quality as any proffesional studio would offer and is reasonably priced!! We are looking forward to having her capture more memories for us as our family grows!!! More...

Joanna has such a blessing in the craft of photography. Her pictures are freshly unique and different. She will do everything in her power to get the "perfect shot". I feel so lucky to have had the opportunity to work with her over the past years. Joanna's personality is contagious, and she will have you feeling comfortable in front of the camera in no time at all! I especially appreciate her dedication to trying new techniques with camera settings and such. Photo's from Julia's House are always one of a kind, and I could not be happier with the end results each and every-time I shoot with Joanna. Looking forward to my next opportunity to use her services. So impressed! Five stars. More...
