I always dreamed of being a wedding photographer, but I never thought I could make any money. A chance meeting with a very successful photographer convinced me I could, and Julie Wilhite Photography was born in 2008. I was working a soul zapping day job, building my business in all the spare time, doing “all the things” and was soon making a lot of money. My husband jokes he saw more of the back of my head than he saw me in those days because I was always at my desk.
Family has always been the cornerstone of my life. I always believed I’d marry a wonderful man and have gorgeous children to fill me with joy and gratitude. Imagine my shock, when I decided I was ready to start a family and my husband thought it impossible because I was so busy with the business? Every truth I’d known was crushed.
It was time to re-focus + re-evaluate my business + my life + transform my business so it could bloom and thrive + maintain a steady 6-figure income. I stopped listening to the noise + did it my way. I’m fortunate to work with the best vendors in Austin + the world + run a 6-figure wedding photography business + a have the life I want.
I have been where you are + and I can show you how to grow your business with intention + make the money you want + thrive in your life.
My suite of courses and 1:1 business coaching applies the same principles I used to develop my highly successful business and life of abundance. I will guide your journey to transform your business: working with the clients you want, filling your wedding calendar, achieving your financial targets, without sacrificing your life in the process. I am your biggest supporter, your cheerleader and your head coach.
The place for new photographers to learn how to start a business without making the mistakes I made.
The place for photographers to escape the overwhelm and build successful, profitable businesses where your well-being is the priority.
The place for successful photographers to challenge themselves to scale, grow and elevate their business to the next level.
We will start examining your business from the inside out, starting with you, your needs and wants from life. Like me, you’ll make some intentional and challenging decisions about how you will run your business to achieve your money goals and support the life you want to live.
It's about focusing + thriving.
Are you ready to grow your 6-figure business with space to
serve the new you? What have you got to lose?
Keep doing what you always do, you’ll keep getting the same results.

I’m a wife, baby-snuggler and travel-obsessed wedding photographer that adores capturing love stories for a living. I am based out of Austin, TX but I pretty much use my job as an excuse to travel the world. On any given day, you can find me making lots of coffee, eating breakfast tacos with my son, headed to the farmer’s market or enjoying the outdoors. And if I get to enjoy a glass of wine in the evening? My day was perfect.
On days that I’m not photographing or coaching, I enjoy editing (with coffee in hand) in my sunny office, which I share with my husband and two cats (no really, they think the middle of our desk is their bed). I’m always in search of my next travel adventure, I try not to take myself too seriously and whole-heartedly believe that family is everything.
