Loved the photos Julian captured of my family ! His work is amazing and I loved how he knew exactly where to go and what position would give the best shot and background - I will definitely use him again and I’m already looking forward to those shots! 5 stars Hands Down the Best!!!
Julien did an amazing job with our vow renewal photos. His work is stunning
I am so happy with the photos Julien took for us. With a two year old who cried 90% of the time and a 4 year old with a short attention span I was VERY worried we wouldn't be able to capture anything but we got AMAZING photos! I still don't know how he did it but they all turned out great. Highly recommend Julien to capture your Aruba memories.

Working with Julien was a breeze. He communicated with me frequently enough that I wasn't concerned he would "flake out"... one of my biggest fears. Most importantly, the pictures were phenomenal. We never felt rushed during the shoot. He did an excellent job. Thanks! I would highly recommend!
My husband & I got pictures while we were on our honeymoon in Aruba and the pictures are beyond amazing! Definitely would recommend Julien to anyone � extremely quick turnaround time too!! Thanks so much!!!
We could not be more satisfied with Julien’s work. Our family trip to Aruba was incredible and Julien’s ability to capture gorgeous family photos was truly the icing on the cake. He’s a professional, diligent, patient and very reasonable. Thank you Julien - our pictures are beautiful.
Julien did an amazing job photographing our wedding. We booked him almost a year in advance, spoke a few times before coming to Aruba for our wedding, met him before the big day and he did an absolutely perfect job. He was kind and patient during the photos and gave good direction for the set up of the shots. He shot everything we needed in about 4.5 hours and got the pictures back to us in record time. Cannot say enough good things about this guy. Highly recommended. Oh- and the pictures came out beautiful. Thank you Julien.
Everybody visiting Aruba needs to book Julian! This was our first time visiting Aruba and even though I’m a Wedding photographer, I wanted to enjoy the experience with my family and have somebody else direct the session. Julian sent me an example gallery so I knew what finished images look like. We booked an hour and he made the session very fun that we were surprised how many images and locations we fit into that hour. We were guaranteed images in 24 hours. Here I sit at the airport, falling in love with our images. Thank you Julian! We love them!

Julien was wonderful! Great personality and very good at what he does. He had pics edited, and sent to me within just a few hours. If you are in Aruba looking for a photographer, I suggest you make an apt with One Happy Photographer! You will not be disappointed! 📸🤗

Julien took our family pics earlier today at Eagle Beach and they turned out amazing. We had our pictures edited and sent a few hours after our shoot. I would definitely recommend his work.
I'm so in love with all our pictures from our sunset photo shoot last weekend in Aruba!! The photos look amazing and were sent so quickly. You were great to work with. Thank you!!
Julien took our pictures with professionalism & was excellent. He knew the perfect place to take such stunning pictures. Prices was excellent especially at how amazing the pictures were. We received the pictures the next day & it was pure perfection. Thank you one happy photographer�
Julien is a creative mastermind. He understood my vision as well as shown me a style of his own. My wife and I love the photos!
We celebrated our parents Golden Wedding Anniversary recently in Aruba and organised for Juliene to take photos as a surprise. We were not disappointed. We had a wonderful time and enjoyed every moment. There were lots of smiles and giggles and we were made very at ease. We are a very close family and this is captured in the beautiful pictures taken.
Julien was so great with our group of 10 with 3 young kids to try to get pictures of!!! We had a great time and he made our session fun and kept us on track! We will cherish these pictures for years to come! We highly recommend him and will use him in the future!!!!
Such a fun day and beautiful photos! We had a great time at our family photo shoot. Julien was fabulous and made sure we had every photo we wanted. He was easy to work with & even got the attention of the 9 month old in every shot! Thank you for such a wonderful experience.
We hired Julien to take pictures of our family of four. I cannot begin to tell you how happy we are with his photos, as well as how easy he was to work with! He is a total professional, chose a beautiful location, and made the entire experience enjoyable. On top of all that, we received our pictures in less than 24 hours, and his prices cannot be beat! Thank you, Julien!
Loretta Dzanko Anderson
We had Julien take our 10th wedding anniversary photos on the beach at sunset yesterday, and they are absolutely beautiful. We have received so many compliments! He made us feel comfortable and welcome during the entire photo shoot. We highly recommend One Happy Photographer for any photo event needed!
Jennifer Smith Leber
We decided to hire a photographer for our vow renewal at the Hyatt beach in Aruba. We are so happy that we entrusted Julien of One Happy Photographer to capture the moment. He was a pleasure to deal with. My husband and I and our 4 grown sons all enjoyed his easy going personality and ability to put us all at ease. We had a beautiful sunset as our backdrop and Julien captured it at each stage of light. The photographs came out amazing and we treasure them.I would highly recommend hiring Julien for your special event or family portrait.
We had Julien take family sunset photos for us on a recent trip to Aruba. They came out beautifully and we’ve gotten so many compliments on his work! He is very easy to work with and makes you comfortable in front of the camera. We have two small children under the age of 3 and he was also able to make it an enjoyable and fun session for them as well! Highly recommend !
My fiancé and I planned our first trip to Aruba and we decided what better place to have an engagement shoot other than Aruba! After doing research, Julien’s work stood out to me the most and I must say it was the best decision! He made us feel comfortable and the shoot enjoyable. The pictures came out amazing and we’d recommend him to anyone!
Amazing family photos to celebrate our 10th Anniversary in Aruba!!! Thank you so much!
Christie Fischetti D'Esposito
So happy with our photos by Julien! We wanted a sunset photo-shoot during our honeymoon in Aruba, and Julien came highly recommended to us by great friends who used him for their engagement shoot. The experience was fun and natural, and that shows through in the beauty of Julien's photos. Thank you Julien, One Happy Photographer!
Jennifer Jones Beck
We booked a photo shoot with Julien (One happy photographer) for our first trip to Aruba & for our 15 year wedding anniversary. Julien provided great service and we just love our photos! Thanks again Julien for capturing precious memories for us 🙂 We highly recommend Julien! Jennifer & Colin
Pleasure to work with. So friendly and attentive. Had a 2 year old with us which could Be very difficult had patience and got just the right angles. Very photojournalist. We finished pictures at 11 and by 130 had 60 edited photos. Can’t wait to book next years shoot. Thanks again julien
We had the pleasure of working with Julien for a family photo shoot, during our recent trip to Aruba. He was very kind, easy to work with, and sent our photos within hours of our session! We love our photos and highly recommend him. Thank you, Julien!
Raven Hill Bozeman
Amazing Job!! So friendly and great with kids. We had one picture enlarged, the picture quality is spectacular. Highly Recommend!!!
Julien is a great professional!!! He will make your photoshoot unforgettable! Don't hesitate, book your session with him and enjoy the beautiful memories.
Lorena Rivas Machado
Julien is very professional and takes amazing photos! He was extremely quick at editing and giving us our photos, took him less than 24 hours. If you are in the Aruba area, I highly recommend that you use him for your photoshoot.
Kerry Magee Tilton
Working with Julien was so great, we would highly recommend him! We have been going to Aruba for years and decided to have our family photos taken while we were there. The pictures we got back were stunning! Julien was so easy to work with. Definitely reach out to him for an island photo session - he will deliver memories to last a lifetime!
We highly recommend Julien for your Aruba family photos! He was such a pleasure to work with. The photos were beautiful! We will be hiring Julien again during our next trip to Aruba! 5 Stars!
I just hired Julien on Dec 9 for family photos for my 10th wedding anniversary trip to Aruba. He was early to the location which I always love. It was touch and go there for a little weather or not he had the availability. Initially he only had space for an early shoot the day after we arrived on island, which we just couldn’t make. But because I just love his work, I was the one the kept on bugging him, and this is because Julien is the bomb! That’s right, he’s the bomb! His work speaks for itself and he’s personable as well. He even called us a cab and helped get our stuff packed away! I wanted Julien to shoot my photos so I pursued him but I wasn’t disappointed at all, and trust me this is RARE! He’s the man! Book him while you can!
Crystal Pope Teeter
We highly recommend Julien! We just got back from Aruba and did an engagement shoot with Julien. He picked out a beautiful location for the photos, was a pleasure to work with and best of all the photos turned out amazing!! He was so quick to get us the photos and they are beautiful! We were amazed at how well the photos were edited to remove people in the background - it looked like we were the only ones on the beach! Julien even gave us some wonderful restaurant recommendations for our stay in Aruba. If you are looking for a photographer in Aruba, you won’t be disappointed with One Happy Photographer.
We booked Julien before heading out on our first trip to Aruba and had a one hour photoshoot. The experience was great, he suggested the perfect location and made us feel at ease throughout. Within a couple of hours of the shoot we had so many amazing photos to capture our perfect holiday! The only problem is, there are so many brilliant pictures that we have had a hard time narrowing down which ones to blow up and parade proudly in our house! Highly recommended photographer at a very reasonable price! Thanks again Julien! ��
We recently celebrated our 10 year anniversary on the happy island where we said our "I Do's", this time bringing 2 additions. I reached out to Julien online and he was very accommodating, making recommendations on the beach where we were married and met us promptly at the time discussed. I could not be happier with the results, photographing a 3 and 6 year old is tough but he captured their true personalities. The pictures where emailed to us that night, talk about service. Money well spent and memories we'll cherish forever. Thanks Julien!
Loved the entire process! Julien was friendly and professional. Before booking him I researched other photographers in the island but his pictures spoke to me the most. Clean, modern and not cheesy. The wind was insanely crazy so did not expect great pictures but somehow we ended with awesome shots!! Would completely recommend if you are in the beautiful island of Aruba ��
Julien took the most beautiful family photos during our vacation this past week in Aruba. It was so easy to make the arrangements from out of town, and when it came to the photo shoot, he was able to capture the most beautiful moments, which is not easy to do when you have 3 teenagers! Our photo shoot was complete in under an hour and I had the photos emailed to me within 24 hours. Julien was so personable and is just simply a master photographer! I am one happy client!
Julien made our first family beach photos an easy and amazing process! From the first day I inquired, Julien was quick and prompt with his replies and arrangement process. I inquired from the States a month before our photo shoot, and he arranged everything through email. He made us feel so comfortable on the beach. He has a great artistic eye! Our pictures were vivid and amazing! Thank you for making our first trip to Aruba more memorable!
OK, as someone who has been doing family photos with my 2 kids and hubby for years (both "kids" are in their 20's now) I have to say that *this* was the easiest and best photo shoot we've ever done and there were 10 of us in the shoot. Julien made the photo shoot fun and accommodated all the different combinations we wanted. We were done in an hour, and as promised, received a link to the photos within 24 hours. The photos were amazing capturing posed and candid moments. We are using one of the photos to replace one that has stood for years over our fireplace. Because I can't decide which photo, I'm making 160x20 prints of 5 of them! Best of all, we have our Christmas photo for this year as well. The only thing I'm sorry about is that we didn't do this each and every time we visited Aruba. We will do that from now on!
Christina Vila Benvenuto
My photos came out great. Julien makes you feel comfortable and made the whole process really fun and easy. We booked our photo session before arriving in Aruba and he made it effortless. He answered all my questions quickly through emails. He works with you as well asking you if there are photos, poses etc you may have in mind. I thought he was fairly priced too.
Jennifer Sturzione Regiec
This is the first time that we had done family pictures. This included my family of four, my parents and my sister and her family. Julien was patient and amazing when it came to the background and the ideas. He was wonderful with my nephew who is 3. He got him in his natural state of having fun as well as making him pose formally. Julien was prompt and efficient and we were more than pleased with our pictures. I would highly recommend him for any type of picture as he captured it all from the fun with my family to the love we all have for each other. Thank you Julien! Amazing job!
Kate Tucker Ayzenberg
First of all, my photos photos are amazing! I had scheduled a family session with Julien a couple of months before we went to Aruba and upon landing, realized I had given him the wrong dates! Julien was very flexible and squeezed us in for the week we would actually be in Aruba and not the month after that I had scheduled �So we meet at the beach with my three kids, my husband and I, his parents, my parents, and my sister. Holy cow. Julien was patient and skilled with the whole group and was able to get some lovely group shots as welll as a number of beautiful candids. I only wanted one or two nice pictures that I could frame from our trip, but we got so many great ones it's hard to choose which we'll frame now. Everyone in the family was very pleased as well. I highly recommend Julien!
I absolutely love how our photos came out working with Julien. I am so glad we were able to work with him. He had great communication and made everything really easy, plus we got our photos back within 12 hours! My fiancé and I have never took professional photos before but Julien made it very easy and comfortable! Wish he was a local photographer to us then I'd use him for all occasions 🙂 thank you so very much again, Julien! We've received some many great comments on the photos.
Julien'works is absolutely great!! We made a family photo shoot last November and he was very kind with our teenager who is photo-hater kind of guy. We spent a funny morning with Julien and all the photos he took are great! P.S: Remember we wait for you Julien in the South of Chile wiht amazing landscapes to �
Branda Hulse Ventimiglio
The pictures that Julien took were even more beautiful than I could have imagined. He was very patient with my kids, as they were less than thrilled about having their pictures taken. Julien had the photos to me digitally in the same day. He has been very responsive and helpful throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend One Happy Photographer.
Julien was really amazing to work with. Great communication prior to our arrival and had a beautiful spot to photograph for our family. There were 9 of us for photos and many different dynamics that made taking photos challenging. Julien knew how to manage the situation and politely told us parents to be quiet so he could manage the children, which I totally appreciated. His rates are extremely reasonable in comparison to what is offered in the states. He got us our photos within the same day and all of the images were amazing! Can't wait to have them printed! Thanks again, Julien. A pleasure working with you!
What can I say... Julien and Glendaline were TRULY remarkable. My fiance had some pretty crazy requests (not to mention it was POURING the day he was planning to propose!!) and they worked with him through it all. I couldn't imagine looking at my proposal and engagement pictures from anyone else - I was blown away. Julien was very professional, kind and made both of us comfortable. He went above and beyond to capture every moment of the proposal then had the pictures to us that night! And Glendaline - she put the most beautiful finesse on the night. The cherry on top. I would recommend these guys to anyone... we even asked if they'd think about coming to Boston for our wedding!! <3 Thank you again, Julien and Glendaline. These pictures will preserve the most magical day.
Kasey Bruns Rumore
Loved does not even begin to describe how I feel about my photos from One Happy Photographer. I can't stop looking at them. They perfectly documented the most amazing day of my life and I will forever be thankful. My family and friends could not get over the high quality of the pictures. Not only that - the quick turn around was incredible. I had the pictures by that night. Glendeline and Julien are so professional too. I give them my highest recommendation.
JULIEN IS THE BEST PHOTOGRAPHER IN ARUBA! He was able to capture the moments before and during my proposal in Aruba that wouldn't be possible otherwise. Since neither of us are from Aruba, Julien was very helpful in picking out several locations for the photo shoot afterwards and knew how to direct us for the posing. We got the photos back within a few HOURS, even in the busiest time of the year! I was MIND BLOWN !
I found Julien thru a Google search and contacted him from the US prior to my trip to Aruba. He was very easy to work with and accommodated my schedule perfectly. When we arrived we met him at the location he specified and he then took the MOST beautiful pictures on beach ever!! The best part is he emailed them to me less than 6 hours after the shoot. Great guy, Great photographer = AMAZING PHOTOS
Emily Lloyd Smith
Julien took our family pictures as we were celebrating our 10yr anniversary in Aruba. He was extremely reliable. I appreciated his quick email responses and punctuality on the day of the shoot. The photos were incredible. The way he captured the background of the beautiful beach made it look more like a painting! Incredible work! He was also great working with our children. Thank you for capturing this special occasion for us!
We celebrated our 30 year wedding anniversary in beautiful Aruba. Julien captured our celebration by taking amazing photos. We highly recommend Julien he is professional and makes the experience fun. Thank you Julien, you are a very talented photographer. We look forward to seeing you next year with more family members... Fondly Arlene Cole
Julien and team did a combination Engagement Shoot and Engagement Video for us in early September 2016. The cinematography was a hit and the the photos came out beautiful. The high quality photos we received really depict One (very) Happy Photographer!
Our wedding pictures came out better than anything we could of imagined. We received them the next day!!!
Julian captured my proposal and engagement shoot. The pictures were amazing and absolutely breathtaking! He did a great job and the best part is that we were able to view our photos within twenty four hours! That's fast for beautiful pictures. Outstanding job! Very very pleased 🙂
Julien's work is absolutely Phenomenal! He has an amazing eye for photography. He knew all of the poses and angles to capture the perfect moment. The quality of photos are so amazing that I can print them into a wall paper if I wanted to! To top it all off, he has such a quick turn around time! I had the photos in my inbox before I got back home for dinner! Thank you Julien for being a part of my special moment!
Julien was professional, artistic and personable. He was excellent to work with and provided outstanding images from a great vacation. Thanks again Julien!
Julien, you were simply amazing! My wife and I and friends were blown away from start (quick response to our inquiry) to finish (delivering great photos)! If you are looking for a GREAT photographer with an amazing eye for capturing your story, look no further. This guy is legit! From one photographer to another, you are doing it the right way. We went to Aruba looking for a photographer that could capture our vow renewal and we are so glad we went with Julien. After several inquiries to work with other photographers, we made the right choice in one happy photographer. Technically sound and creative all at the same time!
The pictures are beyond what I could of imagined! Julien was on time, ready to start as soon as he arrived and is always willing to adjust and please the costumer. And he was able to edit the photos that same day! Every single photo he took was amazing! I would definitely recommend Julien to anyone that is looking for a photographer in Aruba! The guy is a beast! Thanks again Julien!Adam
I am blown away by the photos Julien captured at our wedding vow renewal in Aruba today. He told our story so well through his lens. His customer service & artistry are impeccable. We received our photos right away. We will cherish these photos for the rest of our lives. I definetly recommend his services. Thank you One Happy Photographer!
Adam Keith Gonzalez
We absolutely love our engagement photos! There are so many great ones to choose from! We thought it would be awkward to have our photos taken but Julien made it feel (and look) natural
Christine Kathenes Battagliese
We came across Julien by chance via a Google search! We needed someone to shoot my in-law's 50th anniversary vow renewal ceremony. Julien was so easy-going and personable and captured such wonderful photo memories for our family. We had the proofs less than 24 hours later! I would HIGHLY recommend him if you're ever traveling to Aruba and need a photographer! Thanks, Julien!
Julien is amazing!! I have been corresponding with him for the past few months in preparation for my son's Senior pictures and he has been extremely insightful and helpful. His correspondence is always speedy and he was eager to address any questions I had. Today he took my son's Senior pictures and they turned out AWESOME! He even threw in some family photos. I highly recommend his services! Our family will definitely have him take more pictures for us when we return to Aruba.
Julien was the photographer for our wedding 07/29/2016, he is absolutely amazing !! His personality was great he accommodated my wife with all the posses that she wanted taken. His talent as a photography exceeded more then we could imagine. I would recommend him highly to anyone in Aruba looking for photography. He played a big part in making our day perfect , thanks again Julien. A+
AMAZING!!! Can't thank you enough! Our pictures are beautiful!! Thank you for taking us on such short notice! Couldn't ask for anything more!! A MUST if your looking for gorgeous pics!!!
We are so happy with our family photos! The pictures are absolutely beautiful! It's no easy feat getting both of our kids to look and smile at the same time (especially in bright sun), but we ended up with so many great ones! Julien was great to work with. He's a lot of fun and makes it easy to act natural. Highly, highly recommend!
Dawn Towles Hammel
Our pictures are amazing!!! We went into this wanting a few really good ones and now there are so many to choose from. We had a couple of ideas for poses but Julien came up with the rest. Julien far exceeded our expectations. He is really good at he does. Even the time and location were perfect. We also got our pictures right away. The entire transaction was easy. He is very responsive to emails. I can't thank him enough. Great job!
There is no better place to look for photography in Aruba. Julien helped make the proposal unforgettable for me and my fiancé.
My boyfriend and I came to Aruba for the first time a few weeks ago. I wanted to capture some memorable photos for us to bring home. Julien captured some of the most loving and breathtaking photos of us on the beautiful aruba beaches. I can't thank him enough for giving us such amazing memories to last us a life time (:
While my husband and I were so excited to be having a destination wedding in Aruba, one of the things that made us a bit nervous was planning everything from afar and not having much experience with the vendors. When it came time for the wedding weekend, however, Julien exceeded our expectations! We are so grateful to have chosen One Happy Photographer to capture our wedding day! He was great to work with, very attentive to our styles and the moments that were important to us to have captured. He was very patient with everyone and had such a great energy throughout the day. As if I could become any more impressed with him, he then sends us our edited photos within just days! The photos were AMAZING and we so enjoyed looking through them...over and over again. It has been two weeks since the wedding and we are still getting messages from family and friends about how amazing the pictures are and how they find themselves looking through them over and over again too! I seriously couldn't have been happier with One Happy Photographer. We have all been joking about how we want to fly him to DC to shoot all of our special events from now on!
This review is a little late as my fiancé proposed and hired Julien to take engagement photos for us back in April. We highly recommend Julien he did a wonderful job! Julien arrived on time, was friendly, professional, and came prepared with all of the appropriate camera equipment. My fiancé and I aren’t really the “photogenic” type but Julien was able to work with us to loosen up and take some amazing photos! He asked us what poses we would like and offered suggestions so we ended up with a great spread of photos. One of my favorite photos needed some editing done to my dress. Julien was able to do a wonderful job and made the photo perfect! He really went above and beyond to make sure we were satisfied with our photos. If you are having photos taken we highly recommend Julien. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience.
We hired Julien to do a photo shoot for our family while on vacation in Aruba and he certainly did not disappoint! Our photos came out so amazing and he took so many different poses of us on Palm Beach and we could not have asked for anything better! He took some great shots of us and worked with his and our difficulty to open our sensitive blue eyes during the morning. Highly, highly recommend!
Wow! What a GREAT experience we had! So happy we booked our couple's session with OneHappyPhotographer!Julien made us feel comfortable and confident in front of the lens in a matter of minutes. He understood exactly what I was after and delivered the best couple's vacation pictures ever! His service is very professional. Can't wait for our next trip to the island to have more happy moments immortalized by him!
We came to Aruba for the first time! It was our first family vacation since we had our baby. We knew we wanted to take pictures to have precious memories. Julien captured those special memories for us. He not only answered our emails quickly but gave us our pictures very quick! Thank you Julien for all your work and capturing memories for a lifetime!
My husband & I celebrated our 7th anniversary in Aruba and on whim decided to have our photos taken professionally (first time since our wedding). After looking at several photographer's websites & reviews I decided on Julien and couldn't have been happier with our experience! He was extremely responsive to emails prior to our trip and confirming our photo session. He was very easy to work with and made sure we took all the poses we wanted and emailed us a link to the photos the next day. I would highly recommend Julien!
Eduarda Paganelli DeAlmeida
Julien is great! My family and I went to Aruba for the first time for my youngest daughter's first birthday. Julien was very patient with my 1 year old and my 3 year old. Let me tell you it was not easy taking pictures of these girls in the hot sun but the pictures came out amazing!! I would definitely recommend him!
Julien was AMAZING! We couldn't have asked for a better photographer! He went above and beyond what we expected! Absolutely love all our pictures! He was extremely easy to work with and made our day even more special!
My husband and I booked Julien to do a one hour sunset photo shoot for us on Monday at Eagle Beach in Aruba. We had googled photographers in Aruba as we had never been and took a chance with One Happy Photographer. We based our decision to book with him on the great reviews we read online as well as all the photos posted on his website and Facebook. Julien was amazing; he was prompt, professional, and very talented. As promised, we received a link to our photos within 24 hours and they turned out terrific. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a photographer in Aruba.
Julian was terrific!! My husband and I traveled to Aruba and hadn't had our pictures done since our wedding 7 years ago.. I am very particular as I am a photographer myself. Julian and his assistant were awesome had great ideals and places to go for someone who had never been to the island. Julian's turn around time is something I can't even accomplish.. Awesome job!! If you are ever on this one happy island look Julian up he is defiantly worth it!!
My family and I travel to Aruba annually for our Thanksgiving family vacation. We wanted to do something special with our kids. A family photoshoot on the beach during sunset is a lasting memory! Julian is truly talented. The photos are amazing! He captured the beautiful sunset. I would highly recommend Julian.
We absolutely loved our family pictures. Julien, was beyond professional and patient with our 2 year old daughter! He captured the best memories any vacation could offer. His work is excellent and he is simply the best.
We are on cruise for our honeymoon. We booked Julien for a after-wedding-shooting.We are so happy that we booked Julien. Our photos are geat. Julien is a very good photographer. Thanks a lot Julien. 🙂
My husband and I found Julien on Wedding Wire, we had reached out to him and several other photographers and he was one of the first 5 to answer back. He immediately asked us what our needs were and if it was our first time in Aruba. We went over his packages and found that what we wanted was between two but we we had a tight budget. When we explained he helped us immediately be able to create our own package around our needs and ensured we capture our most important moments. Afterwards he also gave us information on a great local videographer. He setup and appointment for us to meet with him on the island before the wedding. He did not require a deposit and really asked us many questions that made us feel really comfortable like he knew us and trusted us already. When we arrived to the island, he went over how he normally does things and then asked us what our needs were and questions. He even helped us with vacationing ideas. Our wedding planner actually new Julien and told us we were in the best hands on the island. Since we had not coordinated photography with her or told anyone in the hotel who we had choose, we felt even more excited she told us to trust him and how great his work was. On the day or our wedding he brought an assistant to make sure everything went well and showed up early. He worked with me running late and captured all of my pictures. During the wedding he made sure that in our small window of time we got every type of shot we wanted and gave us ideas on some we didn't know what to do, they turned out great as well. He also stayed longer at our wedding and did not fuss when our bridal party took forever to get his payment. We HIGHLY recommend Julien to anyone doing any type of photography, but he really did a truly exceptional at our wedding. Unfortunately faceobook wont let us post a link on our review but feel free to ask him for our wedding photos, the proof is in the pictues. Lastly, also got our photos back to us in less than a week and kept communicating to with us as to their status. THANK YOU JULIEN! We could not have had a better photographer. If you don't use Julien you are truly missing out!
We used Julien for our 5 year anniversary photos and they turned out great! Thanks so much!
Julien did such a wonderful job on our family pictures. He worked with us to create my absolute favorite pictures of the people I love. The pictures were delivered timely with so many good shots it was very hard to choose a favorite. I highly recommend One Happy Photographer!
Daniel J Smith II
I traveled to Aruba during our annual family vacation and I must say I was truly amazed at how the photos turned out once we received them. Julien is very professional and takes the time to speak with everyone and make sure that they are comfortable. If you're in ever in Aruba make sure you contact him to handle your photographs. He's amazing!!!
My wife and I traveled to Aruba for our honeymoon and booked Julien for photoshoot in our wedding attire. Julie and his assistant (his girlfriend) were very fun to work! They made us feel relaxed. We had a really fun time and the results were nothing less than amazing!As a professional photographer myself, I am very picky with the quality of my photographs. Julien exceeded my expectations. Each photo was beautiful! And on top of that, we received all the photos within 24 hours. Even I don't deliver the photos to my clients that fast!I highly recommend Julien and will use him again if we ever return to Aruba! =)
One Happy Photographer brings your visions to life! And tremendous costumer service as well
Jaime W Stringfellow
Julien took wonderful sunset photos of us on pur vacation last week! If you are ever in Aruba and want to get your pictures done he is the man to call! He captured the perfect sunset and made us look great!!
We did a trash the dress photoshoot on our honeymoon with One Happy Photographer. I emailed some photos of what I had in mind and Julian liked the ideas. On the photoshoot Julian helped us look our best and got us to relax. He was very easy to work with and we had a lot of fun during the shoot! This whole experience is one of the best memories we have from Aruba and we are so pleased with the photos!! We could not have chosen a better photographer! Thank you again Julian! /Carina&Victor
Amazing!! For our first trip to Aruba I wanted to get family photos. I found Julien's beautiful website and contacted him right away. So we arranged to have the sunset as our backdrop. I can't put into words how gorgeous our photos came out. Julien is truly something special. He was so patient with our 14 month old who decided it was her way or no way. It really meant so much to us that he was flexible and did everything he could to work around some hiccups. We will be back to this magical island and hope to have Julien create many more beautiful memories for us!!
We booked a session with Julien during our vacation. The weather was not good for our scheduled date. He was so accommodating and flexible. We were able to reschedule. He was so good with our kids. The photos came out awesome! He does fantastic work and we highly recommend him.

My Husband, Myself, and our son were vacationing in Aruba on my sons 1st birthday and decided to get his 1 year pictures done on the beach. Besides the fact that Julien picked the most beautiful place to take the pictures, every single picture he took came out amazing. We have received nothing but compliments and we can't even decide on our favorite picture because they are all that amazing. He had great ideas for all the poses..especially for a 1 year old who isn't always cooperating. He was able to get great pictures in a small amount of time due to a hot, cranky baby. I highly recommend Julien and we had a great experience working with him!
Julien and his assistant took amazing photos of my fiancé and I. We got engaged in Aruba and I wanted to schedule a photo session to commemorate the occasion so it was totally last minute. I reached out to several photographers but Julien was the first to respond and was very professional. He was already booked but rearranged his schedule to accommodate us since we were leaving the island in a couple of days. I absolutely loved the photos and how comfortable Julien and his assistant made us feel. Thank you so much Julien!
Julien was very quick to response to emails and very helpful and excited to help me set us photos for me planning to propose to me girlfriend. Fully recommend for anyone looking to have a photo session for any occasion.

Julien's work is amazing! He patiently worked with our family to create beautiful photos for us to treasure. Thank you for capturing gorgeous images even though our son was not as cooperative as we would have liked. Your kindness towards him is greatly appreciated. Julien, you are an extremely talented photographer. Your beautiful visions produce breathtaking images.

My fiancé contacted Julien a few weeks ago to plan his proposal. Julien was very informative and helped my fiancé pick the location and the details for the proposal. Julien captured us walking on the beach without my knowledge and captured all the right moments. After the proposal, we took our engagement photos with Julien and his team. We had such an amazing experience. We will never forget this life changing moment and will have memorable photos we will cherish forever. Thank you so much for making a perfect evening even more unforgettable! Our engagement photos came out beautiful and I would definitely recommend One Happy Photographer to anyone who wants professional photos in Aruba.

I could not be more happy with my experience with one happy photographer. They did an amazing job!! I would highly recommend them to anyone. 🙂 They are so talented!
We booked Julien less than 2 weeks prior to our trip after receiving multiple quotes and contact replies from other companies - we are so happy we chose him to take maternity photos of us while on our Babymoon. He was friendly, professional and made us feel comfortable. His obvious talent shows in his beautiful photos - if you are looking for something special to do while in Aruba book Julien to capture your special trip! Thanks again! Melissa & John
Go on one happy photographer Facebook page and tell me he's not the best of the best! He doesn't just take 1000 random pictures of your foto shoot and hope for some good ones. Each and every pictures is thoughtful, and taken with a purpose. His style is joyful but elegant and his goal is to find the beauty in your moment and capture it. Julien is the only photographer I wanted and he is highly affordable. Our pictures are beautiful and we will cherish them for the rest of our life. If our son is born we will definitely do a newborn fotoshoot with One happy photographer! Thank you Julien! Daniel & Stefany
My recent trip to Aruba was extremly important because I had plans to propose to my fiancé. It was important for me to learn where the romantic spots were, best views, food, and to document the actual proposal while keeping it a surprise for her. At first it felt like a lot to arrange until I contacted Julien via email. He was extremly informative and made great suggestions for my occasion. We negotiated that he and his assistant would be discretely on the beach during sunset hours and to be prepared to snap photos of actual proposal with an engagement shoot just after. My fiance had no idea he was there documenting our once in a livetime moment and Julien did an AMAZING job with the photos. Not only did his recommendations assist me in my wonderful proposal, I had additional questions afterwards as he met my needs. I couldn't have asked for a better setup for my proposal, and we are excited we have such great photos to look back on and relive that moment 🙂 Thank you!

Lovely photographer!!! perfect shots!!Thank you so much Julien, you make a great job!!
My husband Kyle and I went to Aruba for vacation last week and had our photos taken by the wonderful Julien with One Happy Photographer! Kyle and I are obsessed with the beach, so I really wanted some good photos of the two of us together on a beautiful beach. I am also a wedding photographer in Kansas City, so I tend to be pretty picky with who I choose to do our photos. The minute that I saw One Happy Photographer's website, I knew I wanted to book him! He was great to work with and Kyle and I LOVE our photos from there! I'm SO happy that I chose Julien to take our beautiful Aruba and Beach photos! They are unique and so beautiful! I can't wait to have these forever in our home to remind us of our time there and how beautiful that part of the world is. Thank you SO much Julien! You are amazing and crazy talented!!!! 🙂
Wat een leuke ervaring! We hebben prachtige family foto's!

I found Julien just by doing a simple Google search. I found his website & was impressed with his work. He was quick to reply to my emails & very flexible in scheduling a day & time for the shoot. I am from NYC & found it refreshing to have someone be so accommodating from afar. The 1-hour shoot was just the right amount of time for my 20-month old toddler....her attention span these days can be short! He was quick & easy-going even when she had a meltdown....the shots he got were amazing. The pictures were sent to us within 24-hours. It was a special way to remember our first family trip together. Thanks Julien! Highly recommended!
We have done a newborn beachshoot with One Happy Photographer. Our little babygirl was 3 months when we did the shoot. Julien chose the location; Machebo beach. We brought some props like a babytutu, some toys, blankets and two wooden boxes. Julien and his assistant came up with some great ideas and were very patient with our baby. It was a quick shoot, which was perfect, because you can’t expect a baby to be sweet and adorable for a long time. We had the photo’s the next day. The result was absolutely beautiful! We had so many good reactions on the shoot. We even had six photo's printed on canvas for ourselves and family. We are very satisfied with the professionalism of the photographer and quality of the photo’s! Raymond, Suze and babygirl Elin.
Thank you for my carnaval shoot,the picture are absolutely breath-taking, love your work!
Julian was our photographer at our beach wedding. The photos are very beautiful. Fresh and natural. Both posed as spontaneous shots came out very nice. Just recently we did a baby and family shoot during the day and the shots are stunning. He is patient and comes with ideas of fun photos. We recommend one happy photographer to all our guests at Boardwalk Small Hotel and friends and family have already booked their photoshoots with them! Looking forward to many more great shots! Family Nobels.
Thank you so much for the amazing photographs! Capturing us at 3 locations gave us lots of great photos! You definitely gave us the best engagement photos we could ask for. We will definitely be recommending you to everyone we know that goes to Aruba and looking for a great photo shoot at a great price!
