We had a great experience with Justin for our recent wedding at Villa Botanica, Airlie Beach. His communication before the event was fantastic, ensuring all our questions were answered and our preferences understood. On the day, Justin captured perfect shots and provided a wide range of images that truly reflect how magical our day was. We were so impressed with how quickly we received our sneak peeks and how promptly the full album was edited and delivered. We have had nothing but positive feedback on the images from all our friends and family. If you’re looking for a reliable and skilled photographer, we highly recommend JB!!!

JB photographed our special day and was amazing from our first phone call. We aren’t the most natural people in front of a camera but Justin just made us feel so at ease having a laugh and making everything so natural. If we looked or felt awkward without a word he quickly moved us on. Within 2 days of our wedding we were emailed some sneak peak photos! Would highly recommend JB Photography! Thank you Justin for capturing our day. Our sneak peak photos look absolutely amazing and I can’t wait to see the rest!

JB was a fabulous photographer! He was incredibly responsive when I inquired (relatively last minute), was happy to work with my kids (4 & 6), and produced wonderful photos. He captured the essence of our girls' personalities without much prodding, kept a sense of humor when we weren't the best subjects and was all-around delightful.Though he told us the photos would be ready in 3-4 days (that's super fast if you've used other photographers) but we got them the NEXT day. They are high quality and just fabulous. I am so glad we contacted JB. You will be too!

You can absolutely trust Justin with capturing your wedding day, you will not regret it!!!!!!

I got in touch with JB to organise proposal photos in Airlie Beach. Justin made the process super easy and is a great guy. Communicating and organising the occasion went so smooth even though we were flying in from interstate and I was proposing the same day. The photos came out great and we are over the moon.

Absolutely thrilled with our recent photoshoot! JB was wonderful with my 11-month-old son, creating a calm, fun environment. The pictures are beautiful, of incredible quality and truly capture our bond. Highly recommend!

Justin did an AMAZING job with photographing my whole entire family. The pictures turned out better than I could have ever expected. Thank you so much Justin

Justin is very professional. From the first contact to the day of our wedding, Justin was always available for us to talk and advise.

Justin was super friendly and professional. He was available to suit our needs and very accommodating when we needed him last minute and made us feel at ease on the day. He captured every moment and took photos of some locations that I wanted. He was very lovely to work with, very funny and JB definitely made us feel more relaxed on the day. Would highly recommend!

Highly recommend Justin!

Its SOOOOOO beautiful..💗 The editing is so professional, he's mixed it with our favourite songs and the end result has blown our minds because its so fantastic..
