Capturing memories
Seasoned with weddings
Pristine quality


Hi, I'm Whitney Justesen.

Let me tell your story.

I'm a wedding, adventure, and lifestyle photographer from northern California, with my BFA in Photography. My passion has always been capturing the world in a new light, documenting memories that will last a lifetime, and sharing my enthusiasm for life as I go. I have a deep desire to tell people's stories, and that is what drives me to create art, and capture love and light wherever I can.

My second love, in addition to photography, is traveling and I take my camera with me wherever I go. In the past few years I've been lucky enough to incorporate travel into my business more than ever before, and I hope to make that a trend for years to come. I spend more time on the road than at home these days, and I wouldn't have it any other way.

If you would like to shoot with me or let me capture your love story, whether you're down the street or across the ocean, feel free to reach out! Send me an email at, or fill out a contact form on my website. I'd love to hear from you!

You can also follow along with my day-to-day adventures by clicking on any of my social media links on the lefthand side.

Thanks for stopping by!

Beautiful pictures, great experience!

We hired Whitney for our Marin elopement and could not be happier with her service! First, she was incredibly helpful in helping us plan the day and was flexible to adjust her service to what we wanted. Second, she is absolutely lovely! We were apprehensive that taking pictures alone with a "stranger" would be uncomfortable but she was just great - hyping us up and making us feel like models. Lastly, our pictures are GORGEOUS! Our friends and family (and we!) keep swooning over them and saying how they look taken from a magazine. 10/10 !

Absolutely love her as a photographer and human!

I cannot say enough good things about Whitney. First of all, her photos are literal works of art. The hardest part of working with her is picking which photos you'll get printed for your house. I picked her for her work because again, she cannot take a bad photo (this is coming from a very unphotogenic person) , but its her personality that really shines. She makes you feel instantly comfortable and I think thats how she captures her subjects so well. So many of my guests came to me saying how wonderful she was before they even saw the photos, because she is such a joy to work with. On top of all of that, she was super responsive to all of my inquiries, so flexible with COVID changes to our plans, and just generally so warm and personable. Seriously stop reading this and book her while you can!

Highly recommend

Whitney was brilliant to with with. We were scheduled to take our engagement photos in Italy and then covid happened. When I described to her my very specific non tradition or cliche engagement photos she immediately got it. She knew the location in and out and was able to make the most out of our time shooting together. What is also really important is she was afraid to give good direction. We had to change outfits during the shoot and she was super helpful and really efficient trying to capture the best lighting. I adored our photos! Very classy and beautiful quality.
