Justine Johnson Photography for Offbeat Bride

Hi! My name is Justine, and I'm a wedding and portrait photographer based in New England (but willing, and excited, to travel all over the country & the world!). I do this because of my love of photography and my love of people. I want to know who you are — how you spend your time, what you love, and how you fell in love with each other. I want to know what inspired the wedding you're having, what made you choose a certain location, what the story is behind that selection of music. I want to photograph your joy, your excitement, your hope — all exactly the way it happened.

I'm a very "hands off" photographer, and I appreciate the beauty in the unplanned. My style is unobtrusive yet intimate, capturing all the spontaneous emotions and intricate details of the day all while barely being noticed. I believe in getting to know my clients as people, not just as customers, and I want to talk to YOU!

How I cater to Offbeat Brides

Well, firstly, I am RIDICULOUSLY excited to photograph anything offbeat. Whether it be your wedding/elopement (or commitment ceremony/civil union), a vow renewal, an engagement session, a couples or anniversary session… I'm in! Whether you're going all out with a wild & nerdy theme or simply throwing all caution (and traditions) to the wind and customizing the day so it fits your personalities, I am ALL about that. I'm a firm believer that "offbeat" has many different definitions, just as the couples I work with have many different personalities and styles!

Secondly… I know that weddings come in all different shapes and sizes that cannot be predicted or squeezed into neatly pre-sized packages. You might want me to photograph 1 hour of your wedding day… or maybe you want 10. You might be having your ceremony on the beach, on top of a mountain, on a bowling lane, or in your favorite bookstore. You might be having 1 guest, or perhaps you'll have 400+, all dancing their hearts out.

I am more than happy to talk with you one-on-one about what you envision for the day and what you're looking for as far as coverage and extras go, and make sure you get a package that's 100% what you want and need — nothing more and nothing less.

"If you are looking for an amazing wedding photographer, you've found her! My husband and I had the absolute pleasure of working with Justine for both our engagement photos and our wedding day and we couldn't be happier with our decision! Justine conducted herself with such professionalism and poise and kept us on track during a very busy day. Most importantly though, we had such a BLAST with her! She had us laughing from start to finish and because of that, the photos are a true representation of us on the happiest day of our lives. Justine, I can't thank you enough for the beautiful photographs. We will treasure them for years to come. I am already looking for excuses to book another photo shoot with you!"
