Greetings, all — thanks for taking the time to learn a little bit about me!

My name is Julie and I'm the photographer behind the lens at JKCopenhaver Photography.

I love to document God's beauty around us — breathtaking landscapes, the uniqueness of people, and happy celebrations that bring loved ones together. I started my professional photo journey in Waco, Texas, with college football games, black-tie gatherings, events for the local newspaper, and portraits for special occasions. But I felt called to do more. See more. Broaden my horizons. So in 2017, I quit my 9-5 desk job to travel the world

With two bags on my back and a few one-way tickets in hand, I launched out for a solo journey of a lifetime. I traveled to dream destinations like Australia, New Zealand, and Hawaii; explored the inspiring beauty of America with road trips from coast to coast; and gained a new appreciation for culture and climates in countries like Africa, Ireland, and Europe. I discovered the beauty in the world is overwhelming, the struggles are real, the human spirit is strong—and it's an honor and blessing to document it all. 

When I'm not traveling far and wide, you can usually find me in my home state of Texas, enjoying the cool vibes of Austin, the small-town charm of Georgetown, and backroad landscapes from the Red River to the Rio Grande. I love to engage, explore, and learn—and do it all with a camera in hand. 

So, LET'S CONNECT, and let me fill your photography needs: portrait, landscape, event, or travel. I promise to add a little beauty and adventure to your life!
