About

On WeddingWire since 2013

First and foremost, congratulations!

This is an exciting time – I’m so happy for you two and I’m ready to do my best!

I’m sure you are here planning your wedding and are feeling pretty overwhelmed with all the options, ideas, vendors, and thinking, “We really just want nice, memorable photos, and be comfortable in front of the camera. We want to have an amazing time at our wedding – eating, dancing, laughing, and celebrating with our family and friends.”

Welcome to my world! :D lolol

Before I begin with all the details, I would like to do away with the formalities and keep it light. Technically speaking, I’m a photographer, but honestly, since establishing my business in 2014, I would consider myself a teammate through this process. I’ve really enjoyed getting to know couples, their families, their stories, and at the end of the day, becoming a good friend.

If this vibes with you, we are off to a good start :)

Logistically, wedding planning can be stressful (let’s be honest, just getting to my page was probably a struggle - adulting is hard). Apparently, based on past reviews, I’ve been known to be the extra groomsmen, best man, bridesmaid, maid of honor, or just your overall hype man. I am here for you and I am here to help in any way possible. Answering questions, transparency in communication, and prompt responses are important to me and I hope that everything I share resonates.

I’m here for it all.

I’m very active on social media so feel free to reach out to me. I mainly post wedding photos, travel photos, or silly videos. While I am a wedding photographer, I think all of that encompasses a lot of my personality and what I want to bring to the table for your wedding.

I can’t wait to have a good time, be silly, and have fun through this process!

For weddings, I put myself in your shoes and view the experience from your lens (pun not intended). I am here to listen, accommodate, and be flexible with plans. Most weddings run a little bit delayed, so to me, a 5-15 minute delay does not change the way I run my business. It’s part of the nature of my work and I am not here to clock watch. Comfort is key to capturing the best photos and I do not want to add any stress to your day. If you are happy, I am happy and, truly, that is all that matters to me.

Anyway, I’ll end here and take the advice I was offered when I was younger, “keep it simple, silly”.
Feel free to check out my work, my website, prices and packages, social media!
If you need to see full galleries to view, I can send those as well!

Thank you and can’t wait to meet you!

- Justin

Our best decision

I hated wedding planning. It gave me anxiety and acid reflux. But choosing Justin as our photographer was the best decision we made for our wedding. Besides getting married to the love of my life (I love you, Dan), choosing to work with Justin was the best decision I made.

I read on a post somewhere, a long time ago, that choosing the right photographer was one of the most crucial decisions of wedding planning. Memories are wonderful, but unfortunately, they’re fleeting. Photographs are forever. First, we need to talk about the photos. He DELIVERED. He surprised us with an incredible selection of previews within hours of our engagement photoshoot (Does this man ever sleep?) and within a few days of our wedding day. I swear I didn’t even see him at all during our ceremony, but somehow he ended up delivering so many incredible photos from incredible angles. My husband and I have asked each other “how did he even get that shot?” many times while looking through the pictures. He captured our day in an even more beautiful light than I remember it. My family has always hated photos of themselves, but when Justin’s photos came in… I have never seen everyone upload so many pictures so quickly onto their social media. I think my dad may have changed his profile picture 3 times while clicking through the wedding album.

Now we need to talk about Justin as a person. Professionally, he is so incredibly detail oriented, but also very go with the flow, which is so very important. He showed up to our getting ready spaces to “feel out the vibes” and help out with anything he could. For some reason, our wedding and Harry Potter Day coincided, and Potterheads kept trying to crash our wedding… Not on Justin’s watch. He very graciously shooed them all away. Not a wizard nor witch in sight. And at the end of the evening, Justin helped pack up all of the decorations, and made sure that everyone was safely on their way home.

I also feel like I need to review Justin as a friend. He’s a genuinely kind and funny person. 12/10 friend. Responds to all of the dumb gifs, memes, and videos I DM him. He would be a 13/10 friend, but I took off a point because he couldn’t simultaneously be our wedding guest and our wedding photographer.

Pro Tip: Ask Justin to dance at your wedding. His knees might give out, but he puts on a great show.

We love justin!


Justin is absolutely incredible! Throughout the entire session, he had my fiancé and me laughing and smiling non-stop - Justin's fun personality made the session enjoyable! His talent as an artist was evident as he continually guided us to the best spots and poses. His ability to capture candid moments was amazing! He was not only professional but also incredibly kind and engaging, there was never an awkward moment. Getting to know him during the session was a pleasure, and we are beyond grateful for how incredible the photos turned out!

100/10 Would Book Again

Justin captured my husband and I's special day so beautifully. He made taking the photos so much fun, so we were super comfortable with him and that showed through the photographs. We had a very specific aesthetic we were aiming for and he absolutely nailed it. Justin is also so professional, he sent us a sneak peek of our photos ONE day after our event, and sent us the full shots less than a week after!!!

We are so thankful we went with Justin to capture our day, and will be booking Justin for any of our photography needs - definitely recommend to anyone that needs a photographer for wedding/engagement/elopement pictures/ any special events.

I've been photographing weddings full time since 2013.

I quit the stable 9-5 job, took the risk, moved across the country to pursue this dream. With +200 weddings covered in that time, it's still been the best life and career decision I've made. I have absolutely no regrets. I've had the chance to meet amazing couples along the way - ones who have become lifelong friends; sharing stories and adventures - also to see many starting their own family - or become pet owners <3.

To be able to capture memories for truly incredible couples has been the most humbling and greatest treasure of my life. It is an incredible honor to have been able to witness and celebrate their marriage and life.

----

My backstory:

When I was 10-year-old, my family went to Japan to see our relatives. Out of sheer laziness, my parents gave me the family camera and allowed (better word for 'forced' lol) me to take photos of our vacation.

In high school, I was that friend who carried a camera around and documented everything - eventually becoming those MySpace and Facebook profile pics. I shared all my photos with friends and it became my 'thing'.

I traveled across the country to attend a small university in California. Long story short, I became the unofficial student photographer, which led me to my first job as a photographer, assisted a few weddings in 2011, then I decided to start my own wedding photography business in 2013.

Justin was wonderful to work with! He is extremely responsive, arrived early to scope out the ceremony space, and put everyone at ease in front of the camera! I would not hesitate to recommend him and to work with him again. -Stephanie, SRS Events
