As a theatre-loving gay kid born and raised in Portland, Maine, Justin has always been a friendly extrovert that loves to connect with everybody.
He’s that person who still talks to people in elevators and smiles at folks on the streets of New York City (even though his husband says it’s going to get him killed), so he brings that enthusiasm and energy to every event that he’s lucky enough to document.
In 2010, he shot his first wedding and — despite ripping a giant whole all the way up the ass of his pants — decided that it was the perfect world for him. He continued to work with various wedding photography studios across New England, and then started his own business in 2014 when he moved to the Big Apple.
