Hola and Hello!
Born and raised in south Texas on the Mexican border, so that means I love spicy food, bright colors and big family parties. (y hablo Español)
In 2013 I moved to California, found the love of my life and now we love cooking together (I do the cooking, he does the eating), salsa dancing and hanging out with friends and family.
After teaching ESL for 5 years, I decided to pursue my other passion full time--photography. That was almost 3 years ago!
Photography is how I connect with my people, imagination, culture and what I like to call "magical moments".
What is a magical moment?
As someone who grew up watching Disney movies, a "magical moment" for me is something that includes happy emotions, beautiful colors, glowing lights, and people or things that make me feel that life is good and that the world is a safe and inspiring place.
I am an artist that strives for and creates "magical moments" in my photography. So I guess I'm kind of a Disney lover, guilty as charged.
Most of all, I'm a people lover and I love to capture what makes you YOU! Your special moments that you want to remember forever in the most magical way possible.

"Absolutely amazing experience shooting with Juliet! She captured me perfectly and I feel she has understood me more than any other photographer I have ever shot with!! Very talented!!"
"Juliet took amazing photos of me for the promotion of my new website and private personal training business! I usually fell super awkward in front of the camera but she gives great cues and by the end of the 4 hour shoot I truly felt like a super model. She then sat for at least 45 minutes giving me all the photos and made sure I got them that night after my flash drive wouldn't work. I can't wait to shoot with her again! I wish I could put all the pictures up here!"
"Juliet was very professional and did not look at time once. She was very much into capturing the moment. I would recommend her and Freddie her assistant."
"I am a professional model and have worked with many professional photographers over the years. Juliet Peel is an AMAZING photographer with an OUTSTANDING assistant Freddy! I shot for 4 hours with them at Laguna Beach, the location Juliet suggested, which was PERFECT! I received over 500 digital photos on disk.The photography is so GOOD I am having great trouble deciding which ones to use! Juliet and Freddy are totally professional, courteous, punctual and friendly! I felt very comfortable and they are a pleasure to work with. Her fees are extremely reasonable and much less than many other professional photographers. The quality of her work exceeded my expectations. What an UNBELIEVABLE value!
I give Juliet Peel Photography the highest possible recommendation and I will be working with her again!
Thank you Juliet and Freddy! You ROCK!
"It was very nice she did a great job. I will recommend her to others.she was on time took her time was not in a rush to leave listen to what you have to say."
"Juliet was easy to work with, open to suggestions from our family, and she takes amazing pictures.. I look forward to working with her again... "
"Juliet took our family portraits and they turned out amazing! We have a family of 5 and a puppy she had to coordinate. She was very patient and kind. She's got an amazing eye for photography and took some great shots. I highly recommend her. And I'll be using her services again myself. "
"I am beyond satisfied with Juliet Peel's work. I showed her the way I wanted some of our pictures to look like and she went above and beyond to make sure it was what I wanted. As soon as I started to communicate with her I knew she was the right one. Very understanding. Communicates well. Honest. Genuine. Easy to talk to. And takes beautiful pictures. I am so happy with her work. I hope you decide to go with her. You will not be disappointed. "
"Juliet was the photographer at my wedding on Jan 17 and did a fantastic job! She was professional before and during the wedding. Her photography skills are excellent and she captured every angle of the event, we will have these precious memories forever thanks to her. Karen Fiori "
"She has a fantastic eye for the beauty in all things and is amazingly talented at drawing that beauty out through her lens. "
"In a world saturated with images that tear us down rather than edify I find Juliets work uplifting and full of life, light and above all love. It is rare to find a photographer that sees the soul and knows how to convey the individuality and beauty through this art."
"Juliet was very professional and did not look at time once. She did put lot of efforts in preparing props what we wanted. I would recommend her and Freddie her assistant. We found a great FRIEND in them."
"Juliet was such a great person to work it. We did a night shoot, which I felt kind of skeptical about but with her good eye for location and expertise the pictures turned out great. The set up and photo shoot went smoothly and was stress free! She is open with ideas which makes it easy for options. She made me and my family feel comfortable during the photo shoot as this was our first experience with a photographer. She kept in contact with me during and after the session to ensure satisfaction of our needs. All in all, it was a great first experience & would definitely hire Juliet for future photo shoots."
"Very good! She was on time and is a very experienced and creative photographer. Would ask her again."
"Juliet was amazing. I contacted her two days before the event, and she made herself available. Her assistant and her were very friendly, professional, and genuinely nice and likable people, which goes a long way with me. She was there early and everything went great. She sent me my photos within a day and edited photos within two days. I'd recommend her to anyone."
"Juliet far exceeded our expectations! She was wonderful to work with and the photos were extraordinary!"
