First of all let me apologize if you are looking for the 1960′s Playboy Playmate of the year “June Cochran” or if you googled my name and saw some retro inappropriate photos. Either way I hope you are laughing.
Now with that out of the way, I hope you’re here because you want to stamp your unique personalities on your wedding. You want to have a relaxed and enjoyable experience, not stuffy and formal. In essence, your priority is that this chapter of your love story be told in a genuine and artistic manner that is done in good taste, and you’re not just looking for the cheapest photographer in your neck of the woods. Perfect! I’m so glad we found each other! I am traveling constantly for clients, so don’t be afraid to reach out wherever you are. If we can’t manage face-to-face, lets enjoy getting to know each other over Skype or FaceTime.
ABOUT JUNEBachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Photography. I make note of this because in a day and age when anyone can hit a button, and call themselves a “photographer,” I think it’s important to know that I am not just self taught. I devoted 4 years of my life, full time, to being educated at a high level so I could be my very best at my trade. Since receiving my degree in 2009, I’ve had the pleasure of photographing over 150 weddings (including professional athletes and celebrity clients), and have traveled around the world shooting for large and small corporations, the NFL, boutiques, publications, designers, architects, families, and couples.
- I love being in my thirties

“JUNE. My IPhone doesn’t let me type fast enough!!!! This will be riddled with typos- no time to correct!!!!! Dearest lady- you are quite frankly my favorite photographer and most creative person ever known. I am in AWE of these. I was just sitting at my desk sippin away on my coffee and thought, hey I should check my mail! And BAM! Whole world changed!!! These are so stunning. Aside from the obvious scenery, you truly got our ambience. You captured it all! The glow and the snow and all the pops of color could no thave been captured by anyone but you!!! Eeeeep!!! I am so very happy and so sad it is over all at the same time haha! I will pour over these a bazillion times. You’ll probably get more rambly thank you notes, too ;) THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!!!!”
“June you are a dream come true! THESE ARE INCREDIBLE! YOU are incredible! I can’t stop looking at these! Thank you for being the photographer of our dreams…you nailed it and we can’t thank you enough. Can’t wait to see what else you’ve got. Lots of love to you!!

“We hired June for our weekend activities (May 5th and 6th). We had a very non-traditional wedding. We had a family cookout the day before our wedding. It was very laid back – we wanted to be able to spend time with our family and friends in a relaxed setting. We wanted to have FUN!!! And we did. June arrived and there was so many things left to do to ensure that the cookout went off without a hitch. June was my Angel! She asked if she could help. I was hesitant at first because she’s the photographer. She asked again, and I accepted. She helped with decorations and setting up the tables. She laughed and joked with my friends. She fit right in!!! Somehow, while helping with setup, she took fun, energetic, happy photos of everything. She took photos of people from different angles, she captured laughter, hugs, kisses. She captured two families melding together. The morning of our wedding she showed up to my hotel room and took pictures of everything: my family getting ready, my dress, my shoes. She took photos of my “show stopping” transformation. I felt like a super model. It was so much more than I expected. She took pictures of me as a bare canvas and captured the beauty of a bride. Our ride from the hotel to Central Park (where we got married) was full of jokes and laughter. June caught it all. She’s amazing at being invisible and capturing beautiful secret moments. Ok, now the grand stuff. Lol! She caught everything at the park. She’s magnificent!!! She took pictures of my arrival, my sisters walking me down the aisle. She took pictures of my handsome husband and his awesome brother (who performed our ceremony) waiting for me at the alter. She has pictures of my guests and the violinist. I was wondering if everyone was ok. If they were happy, bored, tired, etc. June answered my questions with her pictures. Everyone was happy. She captures life and all of its variables I could go on but 3500 words just is not enough. June is more than a photographer. She’s a kind hearted, beautiful, intelligent woman that has a gift for capturing love with a lens. My family loves her and you may hire her to be your photographer but we are keeping her in our family as a new member.”
“I just wanted to say thank you from the bottom of my heart for being so wonderful to work with as a wedding photographer, and for BEING our wedding photographer. We felt SO incredibly lucky to have you there with us last weekend on our special day, and we are so excited to see our pictures. You are seriously the best and made our wedding and wedding planning process even more enjoyable!
“We have had a rough week…my Mother Phyllis passed away this past week and we have been trying to deal with the loss. What I wanted to email you about is that I have some wonderful pictures of my Mother and I over the years but the ones that I am SO very thankful for are the beautiful pictures that you captured of us on our wedding day. I just wanted you to know what a special gift you have and that you are very lucky to have a passion for something that can make such a large impact in peoples lives. I have always loved our wedding pictures and what you were able to capture but now more than ever they mean so much more!! Thank you for being there and being such a wonderful part of our special day.”
“I seriously can not believe how amazing, how incredible and how thankful I am to have found you and to have had you document our wedding. You have such an incredible gift of capturing emotions, beauty and love!!! You rock June Cochran!!!! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!!!
“AWWWWWW such a fun reminder!!! Your photos are still our most favorite part of our wedding day! Well, besides our actual marriage lol. Thank you again for such beautiful photos!”
“Hiring June was the BEST decision we made for our wedding day. She is AMAZING. Honestly, I cannot say enough positive things about working with her and the incredibly beautiful photos we will have for life.
I was referred to June by another photographer that I had reached out to, but was unavailable for our wedding day. I looked at June’s website and immediately fell in love with her playful style and heart-felt storytelling. The way she seemed to “document” the wedding day with candid moments and special details was unlike any other photographer I’d seen. So I emailed her…
She was quick to respond and we set a date to meet over Skype since I lived out of state. June’s positive, warm energy was so immediate. We got along right away. She answered my questions and was able to create a package that was exactly what we needed and worked with our budget.
We met in person about 2 hours before the wedding. She came in with a big smile and was so warm and seemed so happy to be there. And then she just got to work. She was shooting every second, but never felt invasive or overbearing. Her smile and calm energy fit right into the flow of the day.
And the photos! Oh, the photos! They are priceless. All our friends and family can’t stop talking about how gorgeous they are. She actually captured the magic of the day. The tears, the looks, the hugs, the laughs, the unnoticed moments, the details I worked so hard on…she got it all. My husband and I both agreed that we did not need a videographer at all because June told the story of our day. BEST decision we made was hiring June. Period.”
“We LOVE LOVE LOVE our wedding photos!!! We stayed up past midnight last night clicking through all of them because they were all so beautiful we couldn’t stop looking at them! You did such an amazing job not only capturing all of the things we loved about the ranch and Aspen, but also of the personalities of us, our family, and friends. I really can’t tell you how perfect they are. Also, even at the wedding we had several members of our wedding party comment on what a great job you did at making everyone feel comfortable in front of the camera (including Ben and me) and making picture-taking painless. Thank you again and we will definitely be in touch about ordering prints if we can ever narrow down favorites!”
