There’s a lot more to Julian Porter Photography than award winning photographs. We are as passionate as you are about capturing the moments that mean the most to you. 

Husband and wife team, Jules and Sue have many years of experience in all types of photography. We understand the importance of creating lasting memories of life events. 

We both love making beautiful portraits & portfolios and showing the human side of corporate photography as well as the professional. We also love to photograph kids having fun. 

Whether it’s your wedding day, your family portrait, a business brochure or pictures of your newborn child, Julian Porter Photography can help you plan every last detail of your shoot, either on location or in our own studio in Southampton. We even run courses in photography for professionals or those just wishing to learn from the best.

Browse our portfolio of work, read our blog about the weddings we’ve photographed since 2006 and see how we become part of your day, rather than just document it. We are as passionate about our clients as we are about the pictures we make with them. 

Why not give us a call or pop in for coffee for a chat? You are always welcome.

We first met Jules and Sue at my brother's wedding nine years ago, since then they have taken my brother's baby photos and then ours (along with a range of engagement and weddings). Our newborn pictures were amazing. Then yesterday, we had the pleasure of being one of the first families to take part in the new range of 'Smash and Splash' for Henry's first birthday. Henry loved the whole experience, as did I. A unique experience of smashing a beautiful (and very squidgy) birthday cake followed by a lovely bubble bath. Thank you Jules and Sue. Another great job x

Thanks Julian and Sue for working with Morgan, who is a very reluctant subject. You chatted away with him and put him at his ease, meaning I ended up with several pictures from which I could choose the 1 shot I wanted for my family gallery

We used Jules and Sue for newborn photos for our first child 3 years ago upon recommendation from a friend. We were so happy with them that we booked again for our second child and we are delighted with the photos again. This time more special that we were able to capture big sister with little brother now our family is complete. On the day our little girl was very tired and it was a really hot day she wasn’t in the mood for photos and it took a lot of patience and perseverance to capture some amazing shots. We got there in the end and Jules and Sue were so patient trying every trick in the book. We can’t thank you enough, the photos are beautiful and well worth the time having them done. They will be displayed in our house for years to come and start the family photo album off!

Top top quality photography team, we had Julian first take pictures of our son jacks first birthday cake smash, the way he put our son at ease and got him to smile whilst being patient with him was a joy to watch. And recently we met again at my sister in laws wedding in Sardinia where they didn’t seem like photographers they seemed like wedding guest, very professional and friendly and now seeing seeing the pictures from the wedding realising why this photography team is so highly recommended and sort after. Great job.

Love Jules and Sue's work. They were superb at our wedding - we couldn't have chosen better. Excellent friendly service, unobtrusive presence at the wedding and grabbed some fantastic shots, both formal and informal. They got stuck right in; dedicated to their craft, Jules even rolled his trousers up and paddled in the sea to get the perfect shot! Afterwards, photos were quick to be available for viewing and ordering from the easy-to-use website. Would recommend them without hesitation.

I have admired Julian’s photos for years and have been fortunate enough to be photographed by him and Sue. We bought a ‘get to know your camera’ day for our mums birthday, where Jules took my mum to Marwell Zoo and was expertly patient helping her understand what settings to use to get the best shot! This was ideal as Mum wanted to use her ‘proper camera’ on a safari holiday later that year. Jules also captured some great shots of my nephew in his 1st birthday ‘smash the cake’ shoot!! We were lucky enough to have a photo shoot ourselves with our 3 kids this spring. Both Jules and Sue expertly got grins on the baby’s face, and kept the kids entertained with Jules’ Lego Collection between shots!! I can not wait for this May when we are getting married and are fortunate enough to have Jules and Sue fly out to Sardinia to photograph our day! I could not think of another photographer I would even consider inviting to join our ‘holiday with a wedding thrown in’... I know that they will capture the day beautifully and that they will get on with our guests like a house on fire!! I definitely recommend JP Photography for every occasion!

Highly recommended, absolutely delighted with our maternity 'bump' shoot, new-born shoot and family portraits! The studio is extremely well equipped, easy to find and has on-site parking, very handy when travelling with a new born! Every-time we were made to feel welcomed and relaxed which led to a lovely environment to get the perfect shots, we are beyond delighted with the outcome and will treasure these precious memories that Julian and Sue captured for us forever and will no doubt be booking more shoots with them in the future!

Thankyou Julian and Sue. We love our photos. This was our second photo shoot and both times have been perfect. This time round we had a handful of a two year old.. but Julian and Sue were fab and still managed to capture great photos (hopefully next year she will be a little less energetic and sit still)

In 2015, after five years as a professional wildlife photographer working only with natural light, I decided it was time to increase my knowledge with a view to exploring new genres. Impressed by what I saw on the Julian Porter Photography website I booked in for a One 2 One Workshop that served as an excellent introduction to studio lighting, and a few weeks later I was back again for additional day of mentoring. Jules and Sue have a wealth of knowledge and experience, but what makes them exceptional instructors is their combined ability to put a student at ease with their wonderfully welcoming and encouraging attitude; I can’t imagine anyone not getting on well with these two and benefiting from what they have to share. More than two years on we are not only still in touch as friends, but if I have a question, if I need an opinion or some advice, I feel completely comfortable reaching out to them sure in the knowledge that they will always make time for me. In short, whether you’re a beginner or advanced photographer looking to add to your skill sets, Jules and Sue are the perfect couple to turn to. As always, many thanks to you both for your continued friendship and support!

I worked with Julian as a model for several boudoir workshops around 2010 / 2011. I couldn't ask to work alongside two nicer people; both Julian and his wife, Sue are down to earth and hospitable; I felt completely at ease and Julian's expertise in his profession really shines through. The resulting images are absolutely beautiful. A lovely comfortable environment all round.. very highly recommended.

I needed an Australian passport photograph quickly. Called Julian and was booked in the day after. He and his glamorous "Assistant" could not have been more friendly, helpful and professional. Who would have thought that a passport photographic session could be so enjoyable? Can not recommend this "Team" highly enough.

First time visitors and certainly not the last visit! We took our newborn to see them last week to capture those precious pics we all want when a miracle comes into our lives. Jules and Sue are professional, friendly and created a calm relaxed environment for our little miracle to do his thing. They were completely understanding of how newborns can be and at no point did they apply any pressure! Can't recommend this couple enough. We will certainly be going back.....

This was the second time we have used Jules and Sue for a newborn photo shoot and we have been absolutely delighted with the photographs both times. With the most recent shoot last week, we took our newborn daughter, as well as our 3 year old son and 6 year old daughter. Our son is particularly shy of new people and doesn't like being the centre of attention so I was not at all hopeful that Jules and Sue would manage to get any good photographs of the three of them together. However, they were amazingly patient with our son and managed him so well, he did eventually warm up and joined in allowing Jules to capture some fantastic shots of all 3 of them, as well as the usual stunning newborn shots they take. Jules and Sue really are the loveliest couple who make everyone feel totally at ease and there is absolutely no pressure to rush through the photos. I'm so glad we discovered them and they are so reasonably priced compared to many other newborn photographers (which is what sold it to my husband when I said I wanted a newborn photo shoot!). We have a disc of loads of stunning, printable photos that we can print and share with family. Now we've completed our family, I know I will want to use Jules and Sue again in the future for family shots as the children grow up. Thank you to you both!

Have never met Julian! That, to state from the begining. Alas, only by speaking with him online for a few times, and seeing his photos of bikes and bike stuff, plus seeing his attitude while trying to help others every day makes me have no doubt that he is the photographer you have been looking for.

I was struggling to find a photographer to shoot our little girl as many of them had mixed reviews and prices were ridiculous! we went to Julian last week to have our newborn baby shoot and we couldn't fault him at all! From the minute we arrived himself and sue made us feel so welcome and relaxed. They went through with us what would happen during the shoot and what sort of photos they were going to take-I don't think there was one photo that we didn't like!! Julian and sue were amazing with my daughter as well making sure she was relaxed and comforted throughout the day. I would HIGHLY recommended these two and will definitely be going back to have more photos done. Thank you both so much!!

Julian and Sue photographed my Daughter when she was 8 months old at their Xmas photo shoot and I could not be happier with the shots they got and the products they offered all at an excellent price. We are now booked in for a bump and baby Photoshoot plus our wedding next year. Really friendly, reslly helpful, never rushed and great price.

Had a photo shoot with the other half Ashton and dog Terry. Julian and Sue were both fantastic and made sure Terry felt at ease at the studio they gave him plenty of time to adjust to the new surroundings ( Terry is a rescue dog who is easily nervous) They also suggested lots of great ideas for the photos which helped a great deal too. Julian then took several photos of Terry on his own and then all 3 of us whilst Sue made a great job of getting Terry to look the right way. When we came back to look at the edits we were astounded and amazed at how fantastic they came out and Julian took his time to show us the colour ones and also had copies in black and white for us to look at as well. I wanted to take my canvas home there and then! We collected our canvas this week and I can assure you it was worth every penny. The high standard speaks for itself and I smile every time I look at it as it's a precious memory. Will definitely be booking up with them again and I would highly recommend these amazing lovely people if you want a photo shoot or photographer for anything as their work is flawless. One very very happy customer. If there was a higher rating than 5stars then I would give them a lot more. Thanks guys you are the best!!! 😊👍👌

What an amazing pair of people! Julian and Sue went out of their way to make sure we had a beautiful engagement shoot in preparation for our wedding next year! I was very nervous all the way to the venue, but as soon as we got out of the car and started chatting about the day I was completely put at ease. They work beautifully together and will not stop until they have got the perfect shots! I can't wait to see what magic they capture on our big day! Emma & Tom xxx

Julian and Sue photographed our wedding in the Lake District in October and I could not be happier with the results! They were just perfect fitting into our day and taking some stunning photos for us. They made us and our guests feel completely at ease and nothing (not even a fairly muddy walk to the lakeside and a Springer Spaniel!) challenged them. I would not hesitate to recommend Julian and Sue, they gave us some really special memories of our wedding day!

I'd give them 6 out of 5 if I could. I have used Julian and Sue for many shoots with my company and each and every time they have gone over and above anything asked. They are such a kind, genuine couple and really talented photographers too! I wouldn't hesitate recommending their services, for corporate shoots, weddings, and a whole list of others, they have a unique way of engaging with any subjects, plus they will very quickly become your friends not just photographers.

We first met Jules and Sue at a close friends wedding. As soon as we met them and had seen their beautiful wedding pictures we decided that we would love them to photograph our wedding. They photographed our wedding at the Tithe Barn last year and the pictures they took are amazing. Everyone at our wedding commented on how brilliant they were in getting everyone together for photographs and how organised and professional they were. Our wedding album is perfect and something that we will treasure forever. Jules and Sue are not only our wedding photographers but it feels like they are our friends too. They have such passion for their work and it is reflected in their outstanding photography. This year they photographed our newborn baby Amelie at 8 days old. Every time we look at the photographs they bring tears to our eyes as they are just so beautiful. The photographs they produced are so precious and like our wedding album will be treasured forever. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Jules and Sue for any type of photography...in fact we have several friends and family who have now used them or are going to use them for weddings/newborn shoots.

Don't hesitate in booking them as they won't let you down!

What can I say other than Julian and Sue are amazing. We first met them through running and were impressed by the quality of the photos. Has any runner knows photos and Lycra don't flatter you but Julian and Sue somehow managed to get brilliant flattering shots. So when we set a date for our wedding it had to be Julian and Sue. They work well has a team and are very discreet. We went with a story board theme and honestly the photos are amazing. They capture the natural beauty in a person. You will not be disappointed with this great couple. Janet and Greg Ward (wedding was 2016)

We absolutely love these guys! Thank you Julian and Sue! Best newborn photography around, we would not go anywhere else! The whole family had a really good time and the relaxed atmosphere Julian and Sue created for both us and the children was faultless and well received by all. You guys clearly know what you are doing! :) The results speak for themselves and are absolutely wonderful - we are so pleased with the photos and there are so many great ones to choose from. Just wish we had known about you when looking for a wedding photographer! :) We have highly recommended your services to friends who have seen our photos and we would be very happy to come back and have you take photos of our family on another occasion. We look forward to working with you again.

We decided to use JP photography for our wedding after reading their website and liking their approach. When we were in contact by email, Jules was very warm and friendly, which meant that when we met with Jules and Sue at their studio to discuss our requirements, there was no awkwardness. On the day of our wedding, they were both excellent, Jules taking the "obvious" shots (including one where he ended up wading in the sea to get the right shot!) and Sue taking "natural" photos very subtly in the background. Once we were home, the photos were very quickly edited and available online for us and our guests to view/order and we absolutely love them. We are still in touch with Jules and I would highly recommend using these lovely people for their excellent service and high quality photography.

After recommendations and seeing some of the lovely photos Julian and Sue had taken there was no other choice for our wedding. Neither my wife nor I enjoy having a photos taken but we were both made to feel comfortable and the results were clear to see. A few years later we asked Julian to take some newborn photos of our lovely daughter. Again we were delighted with the results. What ever the occasion you will be in safe hands.

We first met Julian and Sue in 2009 when they photographed our wedding. Our special day was made even more memorable and perfect because of their relaxed but thorough approach. Julian and Sue have a way of putting everyone at ease and capturing those unexpected moments that you cannot predict that help to make your day so special. We were so thrilled with the results and found it hard to choose which photos to pick for our beautiful album. Our favourite shot of the day was captured in the pouring rain with a big white umbrella (provided by Julian and Sue!). We visited Julian and Sue again in 2015 when our son was born. As new parents we couldn't have wished for a more relaxed atmosphere for our newborn shoot. They looked after us (made us lots of tea and let us relax on the sofa) while they took charge and captured loads of beautiful pictures of our precious baby. We couldn't believe how well the shoot went and once again we were overwhelmed by the amount of beautiful photographs. When our son turned 1 we returned to Julian and Sue again for a Smash the Cake shoot...so much fun! We couldn't ever imagine anyone else capturing all of our special milestone moments. Thank you so much Jules and Sue!

Julian and Sue are the nicest and most professional people I have ever met. I can honestly say our wedding wouldn’t have been the same without them there, they felt more like guests I consider them good friends. Their photographs are amazing and I would definitely use them again if we ever need photos done for any other occasions. Also I hate my photo being taken and they made me feel so relaxed and comfortable. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

Friends of ours had Julian photograph their wedding a couple of years before our wedding and we had been so impressed with their photos we knew we wanted Julian and Sue for ours. I usually feel very uncomfortable in front of a camera but at the first meeting they we're so friendly and understanding they made me feel so relaxed. On the day of the wedding it felt like we had friends photographing our special day and mingled with our guest who they made feel easy in front of the camera too. The photos we got of the day were amazing and I regularly get out the album to look at. Thank you Julian and Sue you've made our wonderful memories last for ever

I decided to have Julian and Sue as they did my daughter`s wedding seven years ago and did such a good job. We had two photo shoots one for our little family with our grandchildren Owen and Willow taking centre stage. We all had so much fun, the children loved it as well, especially with willow being in a tutu and wellies. That was followed by a shoot for myself and my three sisters, (so the full coven) as we do not have any photos of us all together. Again lots of giggling. It all went so well! And we are all so pleased with the results. Thank you both for so much fun, and beautiful pictures. Isabelle.

In 2015, after five years as a professional wildlife photographer working only with natural light, I decided it was time to increase my knowledge with a view to exploring new genres. Impressed by what I saw on the Julian Porter Photography website I booked in for a One 2 One Workshop that served as an excellent introduction to studio lighting, and a few weeks later I was back again for additional day of mentoring. Jules and Sue have a wealth of knowledge and experience, but what makes them exceptional instructors is their combined ability to put a student at ease with their wonderfully welcoming and encouraging attitude; I can’t imagine anyone not getting on well with these two and benefiting from what they have to share. More than two years on we are not only still in touch as friends, but if I have a question, if I need an opinion or some advice, I feel completely comfortable reaching out to them sure in the knowledge that they will always make time for me. In short, whether you’re a beginner or advanced photographer looking to add to your skill sets, Jules and Sue are the perfect couple to turn to. As always, many thanks to you both for your continued friendship and support!

We picked Julian to do our wedding photography as we didn't want traditional photos of everyone staged in groups. We had a small wedding and Julian really captured the individual nature of our day, by equally involving everyone, which very few photographers seem to be able to do. Julian even managed to capture an amazing shot of a group of very determined women racing to catch my bouquet, which was no easy task. The result was an amazing photo which you won't see in the standard wedding album. Along with this Julian (and Sue) included fantastic pre-wedding preparation and post wedding photo selection and album production, I couldn't recommend them more highly.

When I first contacted Julian as well as a number of other photographers to compare their services, it was clear that he and Sue would be the right choice to shoot family portraits of me and my son. Julian seemed enthusiastic and made me feel at ease from the get go, even being very understanding when we had to rearrange appointments several times. When we finally got round to shooting on a cold day at the Common, Julian and Sue had lots of ideas and direction and the photos have surpassed my expectations. They are beautiful and me and my family will treasure them forever!

I have admired Julian’s photos for years and have been fortunate enough to be photographed by him and Sue. We bought a ‘get to know your camera’ day for our mums birthday, where Jules took my mum to Marwell Zoo and was expertly patient helping her understand what settings to use to get the best shot! This was ideal as Mum wanted to use her ‘proper camera’ on a safari holiday later that year. Jules also captured some great shots of my nephew in his 1st birthday ‘smash the cake’ shoot!! We were lucky enough to have a photo shoot ourselves with our 3 kids this spring. Both Jules and Sue expertly got grins on the baby’s face, and kept the kids entertained with Jules’ Lego Collection between shots!! I can not wait for this May when we are getting married and are fortunate enough to have Jules and Sue fly out to Sardinia to photograph our day! I could not think of another photographer I would even consider inviting to join our ‘holiday with a wedding thrown in’... I know that they will capture the day beautifully and that they will get on with our guests like a house on fire!! I definitely recommend JP Photography for every occasion!

Julian and Sue are a lovely couple, who made our first family shoot experience very special. They approached the shoot with care and thoughtfulness, taking time to ensure that we had the best quality photos. We would recommend them to anyone.

We decided that we wanted a family photo to mark our 10th wedding anniversary, but were a bit anxious about how it would go with two young boys and a dog! Jules and Sue put us instantly at ease and managed the whole shoot wonderfully well (even the dog!). Our only problem now is choosing our favourite from the lovely photos we received a couple of days later! We would recommend them to family and friends with no hesitation

Jules and Sue are amazing, not only do they deliver exceedingly professional service from start to finish the end results always go above and beyond perfection. We have used Jules and Sue four times now and each experience has been incredible. They make you feel so at ease with their friendly and relaxed presence. We would never consider going elsewhere now, we are always trying to find any excuse for a shoot with JP :) Vicki and Luke

When planning our wedding we had no hesitation in booking Jules and Sue. Right through the months leading up to our big day they were on hand to offer valuable advice and tips for our photographs. On the day everything was very relaxed and stress free. Jules and Sue work seamlessly together to get the fantastic shots we have to remember our day by. The finished photos are absolutely amazing and exactly what we asked for. We couldn't be happier with the results. Both of them genuinely care about their work and we can't recommend them highly enough. A lovely experience with lovely people.

Absolutely incredible experience! I was a beginner photographer, with basic knowledge of how to use my camera. I now have a much more detailed knowledge of how taking great photos work and my photography has improved greatly after just one day! Julian and Sue are so friendly, fun, and passionate about their photography and this passion shows, not just in their own photos but in mine as well! I cannot recommend these guys enough and am so thankful for the time they put into helping me improve my photography skills! Can't wait to put these skills into practice and learn more with every photo I take.

Julian and his lovely wife are professional, friendly and great at what they do. With fantastic props and studio, warm & welcoming and professional approach, the shoot was brilliant. We commissioned them to take a set of pictures of our new born (who was not even 2 weeks old) and they knew tricks and tips to help get the best of the shoot. Ensuring we were all comfortable at all times and never rushed. The end results are simple fantastic and we will definitely be returning for future shoots. Cant recommend this duo enough!

Jules and Sue are simply amazing at what they do. For our wedding they made us feel so comfortable and at ease which really helped in getting some fantastic shots. They’re such a great team and between them managed to capture our day superbly - beyond anything we could have ever imagined! We got our photos very promptly and they were presented in a beautiful gift box on a USB - very easy! Cannot recommend Jules and Sue enough! Thank you!
