I've been a photographer in some way or another since I was 15 years old. After the birth of my first child in 2007 I began focusing on my skills again and guest photographed a few friends' weddings. The positive responses I received convinced me to start Sky Blue Iris as a side business and I began looking for clients who wanted a talented and creative photographer who can meet them at or below their budget. I've been working in the wedding business as a photographer since 2009 and after all these years and almost 100 weddings I still believe that photography doesn't have to be a majority of your wedding budget.

I take a simple approach to wedding photography: deliver fun, creative, memorable photography for a price you can live with. My clients receive high resolution digital copies and full printing rights so you can make enlargements, albums and all the copies you want; after all, they're YOUR wedding photos, what am going to do with them? I love to take that extra artistic step to turn the photos from snapshots to works of art. It's with this in mind that I'm striving to be different from your typical wedding photographer.

Please contact me for additional information via email or via phone (503) 267-2816

I hope to hear from you soon!

Justin was more then willing to do what we wanted. The pictures he took looked far more amazing then I thought could happen. I would use him again for all our picture needs in the future!

Working with Justin was the easiest part of our wedding. His service is incredibly affordable; we loved the fact that we got to keep all of our photos at the end without additional costs!! On the day of the wedding, he was a nice, calm presence and had great ideas for beautiful shots. He wasn't overly instructive and allowed us to be ourselves. I personally enjoyed the many angles taken of the ceremony. He was especially a good sport when we requested to have group photos with all of our guests (40 guests in total). After the wedding, the photos came back on a convenient USB drive and were beautifully edited. I would highly recommend SkyBlueIris to anyone needing photos in the Portland area.

Justin was a great photographer. He did an amazing job with all of the pictures. When looking for a photographer for our wedding, I wanted someone that had an artistic view at a decent price. Justin was the perfect pick for us and I couldn't be happier.

Justin was an amazing photographer to work with. He really cares about capturing those special moments of the wedding and is willing to go to any length to get that perfect picture. He is one of the most affordable photographers in the area, but his work quality is far superior to others I've seen in the same price category. Just check out his portfolio!
