Hello! My name is Justin and I am so thrilled to have you here!
I am a wedding photographer based out of Southern California with a love for San Diego and Orange Country. As a wedding photographer it has been such a privilege and honor to make new friends, geek out over the same things, and turn moments into memories. I can't wait to take this journey with you! So make yourself at home and take a look around!
In this business, there are very few times that you get to shoot one of your childhood friend’s wedding.
I’m beyond blessed that I get to say that I did!
Mary has been a good friend of mine since I was 10 years old! I am so honored that she chose ME to shoot her and Jeff’s wedding!

Mary and Jeff celebrated their wedding at Whispering Oaks Terrace in Temecula. It created the perfect backdrop for them.
The morning was filled stomachs full of butterflies, family and laughter! The weather was perfect as the couple’s friends and family all joined forces to put together this wedding.
Mary gave each of her bridesmaids a special gift which was a customized Photo Blanket that has imprinted each special memory that was spent by her when she was a bachelor. Similarly, Jeff had some groomsmen gifts of his own for his mates. What a sweet touch!
I absolutely love when my couples decide to do a First Look. Mary and Jeff got to share an intimate moment together before the wedding and I am IN LOVE with these images.
You can totally see how nervous Jeff was to see Mary in her wedding dress for the first time.
And one of my favorite things about Mary and Jeff’s wedding. Their reception was in A BARN!
All of these beautiful vintage pieces were provided by “Touched by Time Vintage Rentals”. Mary’s mom Lisa did an amazing job styling everything and Jeff built the tables!!!
So I’m pretty sure this wedding is literally the definition of DIY. In love with everything!
