Hi Everyone! My name is Julie Goetz and myself along with my husband Marcus own and run Down The Dirt Road Photography.
I am located in the ever beautiful Pacific NW. I am a wife and mommy who loves spending time with my husband and kids. We adopted our boys in 2012 and 2013 and our daughter in 2016. Our children are the light in our lives!
I love photography and capturing all those moments of kids, babies, families, love, etc! Capturing moments in time is such a priority for me and I cherish each and every photo shoot and work hard to make it comfortable and fun. I also absolutely love shooting weddings. I am a natural light photographer and prefer to take photos in the amazing outdoors. I also love anything rustic and vintage! I love old barns, old houses and anything weathered. I believe you can never have too many photos and should capture each moment :)
Each session is unique and special. Everyone has a story to tell. I am just lucky enough to capture life's amazing moments on camera. Please feel free to look around and I will be happy to answer any questions you have. I would love to book a session with you!
Marcus Goetz is my husband. He has been taking photos for years and loves to photograph vintage and basically any vehicles. A couple years ago, Marcus made the leap into taking portraits! He works as my second shooter for weddings and has found great joy in taking senior portraits. He takes his camera everywhere he goes because you never know when you will see a cool car. Marcus is available to take photos of car shows, your own personal vehicle and much more!
The whole family loves to explore rustic dirt roads looking for treasures that time has forgotten.
