Justin is the best in the business. Period.
Justin exceeded our wildest dreams. TLDR; He is lightning fast, amazing to work with, and - most importantly - a brilliantly talented photographer.
I reached out to Justin initially because, from the list of recommended vendors of our second (but not eventual) wedding venue (thanks, covid), Justin was the only one in ANY vendor category who had **HIGHLY RECOMMEND** next to his name. I also was looking for someone who could span the range from the formal portraits my mom wanted to the artistic shots I cared about, and after obsessing over the images on his site and social, I knew I'd found the one.
Okay ... so did Justin live up to the hype? OMG YES AND YES AND YES. From our first interaction, Justin made me genuinely feel cared for and cared about. I think at a few points we had live conversations going through email and IG at the same time. And despite several changes in date, time, and location, Justin made them all work. What struck me the most about his style is that Justin is somehow laid back and hilarious while still delivering a world-class experience.
The day of our wedding, Justin was impeccable. He made everyone feel at ease, which is not an easy feat, especially during COVID. What stands out the most from the day of is how FAST he was. To be clear, I never once felt rushed. He was just incredibly efficient. For example, family shots after the ceremony took 15 minutes. Whaaat?! And (spoiler alert) the family photos came out beautifully. How?! Justin can afford to work so quickly because he has such a clear plan and is literally that talented. For us, the pace meant that we were able to enjoy our guests AND get amazing photographs.
Okay, so about the photographs. First, he sent us 100 shots within 24 hours and the full set in under 2 weeks. Second, the photos are more than I could ever have hoped for. Th same man delivered beautiful family portraits, natural candids of moments I had no idea happened, and gorgeous, epic shots of me and my husband up on the mountain, including some long exposure shots with a drone. I asked for it all and I literally got it all and then some.
If you can't already tell, I fangirl HARD for Justin Kunimoto. I cannot wait to have another excuse to hire him and, in the meantime, am honored to call him a dear friend. THANK YOU, JUSTIN!!!Sent on 10/17/2020

Such an amazing photographer!!
Our experience with Justin was beyond what we could have hoped for. He was incredibly professional and responsive, amazingly talented, and a wonderful person on top of that. Each and every communication we had with him made us feel confident and excited about our choice. We interviewed several photographers, and he was by far the most organized and knowledgeable. We loved hearing the story of his journey into photography and could really hear the passion he holds for his work when he spoke. My husband and I are camera shy, but he had an infectious ease and humor about him that made us feel very comfortable in his presence. He was not hesitant to take command and instruct us on how to stand and pose but also took many candid shots that superbly captured our happiness. We were laughing and smiling so much that our cheeks hurt at the end of the session. Our pictures were stunning and reflected perfectly the emotion of the day as well as the beautiful scenery that surrounded us. We could not recommend Justin more and hope to have the opportunity to work with him again in the future!Sent on 10/26/2020

Our experience with Justin from the beginning to end has been nothing but amazing! We needed a last minute photographer due to all the changes with our wedding (thanks covid!) and we are so happy we found him! He was super responsive, super nice, super fun, and super talented!!!Sent on 11/17/2020
Justin also went above and beyond the day of to help the wedding party prepare and even helped with clean up! This just shows what kind of person Justin is. He not only made us feel comfortable while taking photos, but he made sure everyone felt at ease!
By the next morning, he sent us a preview of photos and we were absolutely blown away with the amazing photos! He was able to capture all the emotions of our special day - every time I look at the photos, I am reliving that exact moment.
If you are looking for a photographer, don’t look any further because Justin is your guy!
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
Justin is a great photographer, he has a way of making the client feel at ease and like he's not even there. He's great at communicating and the end results speak for themselves. I look forward to working with him in the future!
