Known for their lively, atmospheric and honest style, German duo Julia Blumenthal and Gil Gropengießer are destination wedding photographers who love nothing more than exploring breathtaking landscapes and capturing the connection between two people on the happiest day of their lives. They are also, appropriately enough, a couple themselves.
The couple met in 2011, fell in love, and quickly realised that they shared a passion for photography. A casual interest in snapping friends and vacations quickly developed into something more, and the positive response to their elegant, natural style finally convinced them to try working together as wedding photographers. By 2014, Julia and Gil had booked their first professional shoot. Today they are classed as 'destination photographers', travelling all around the world to shoot with clients under their brand name, Julia & Gil Photography. They are also regularly commissioned for engagements and weddings in their home country of Germany.
