Julia Xanthos Liddy is an experienced photographer & video journalist based in New York City. After 12 incredible years on staff at the New York Daily News, she returned to freelancing to focus on personal projects and raising her baby boy. Her work at a major New York City newspaper helped her learn how to find the "picture in between the pictures" and effectively convey her subjects' stories. Most recently her video work earned a NY Emmy Award. Julia's distinct style combines her photojournalistic experience with a fine art background, producing work that is striking and immediately accessible (her editorial website can be viewed here).
When documenting your momental life events, be it a wedding or welcoming home a newborn, Julia brings her sense of compassion and humor to capture memories that will be timeless. She commits to a modest number of weddings each year to ensure that every subject receives the proper attention before and beyond their special day. Julia is the principal photographer and videographer, but can draw from a group of talented photojournalists to ensure the most important aspects of your special day are covered, working respectfully and discreetly in order to capture the candid moments as they occur.
Julia's "Young Love" photo series on Instagram is a constant source of creativity for her. Through this passion project she has found endless amounts of romance on the sidewalks, at the beach, riding the subways. It has become her love letter to the city she adores.
Aside from her camera, the focus of her life is her family. Julia lives in Brooklyn with her two Tommys (her husband and son) and sweet baby girl Zoe.
