Congratulations on your engagement! You’re about to experience some of the most special memories of your lives, and I can’t wait to document your smiles as you take it all in. :)

My name is Justin Hankins and I’m a Virginia-based photographer who travels around the world documenting the happiest moments in people’s lives. I have a reputation for taking incredible care of couples just like you, and can’t wait to figure out how to surprise and delight you.

My work has earned an Accolade of Excellence by Wedding and Portrait Photographers International, is published widespread in books and magazines, and has won me the Best of Weddings nod by The Knot Magazine seven years in a row (2010-2016). Most recently, I became one of only three Virginia photographers to be inducted into The Knot's Best of Weddings Hall of Fame.

Please get in touch so I may swoon about your plans. :) Read less

**Update: All of our images just came in and Justin knocked it out of the park! Our photographs are beautiful. He captured our day in a the most beautiful way and managed to make lasting memories of the fun moments from the reception :)
Justin was AMAZING! We interviewed several photographers before making the absolute right choice in asking Justin to be our wedding photographer. He was the perfect amount of attentive without even a touch of overbearing. Easily reachable when I had questions and even accommodated an "engagement" shoot of our dogs and I while my fiancé was deployed so he'd have pictures of us. Justin was early the day of, never stopped moving over 9+ hours but never felt like he was in our face or in the way and even had a sneak peek of photos for us before we woke the day after the wedding. His creativeness, thoughtfulness and talent were perfect for our southern inspired Bow Ties, BBQ and Bourbon themed wedding at The Hermitage Museum and Gardens in Norfolk. We highly recommend his services.

I would hire Justin again in a heartbeat! He was extremely professional and courteous. His sense of humor and laid back demeanor was very much appreciated, especially on the wedding day. His pictures of our wedding turned out beautifully, and they were delivered in a very timely manner. I would recommend his services to anyone!

We hired Justin for both an engagement party and a wedding one year later. From the moment we met, I knew he would be perfect. I interviewed some others, but I could tell they wanted to do things their way. Justin's way will work with your way because he is flexible and open, and, at the end of the day, a super person.
His talent is truly top notch, from candids to still lifes, group and family photos and more. He is refreshingly creative and cares so much about the final product.
My daughter and her husband as well as my husband, family and friends were also so pleased with everything he did. His final product-- the leave behinds, books and other goodies--are so classy and elegant.
If you are looking for a stress free, superior quality photographic experience, look no further. You will trust him completely and be charmed by his personality and immense talents.

I feel that wedding pictures are one of the most important wedding purchases. I wanted top notch pictures that we would fall in love with every time we looked at them. Justin gave us that and more!! Every time someone asks to look at our wedding photos and I pull them up the first thing they say is "you had the best photographer. Your pictures are beautiful, amazing, etc". They are right! We are in love with our pictures. Justin is not just a fabulous photographer, he's conscientious and thoughtful! I promise you, you won't regret choosing Justin Hankins Photography for your wedding (or whatever your photography needs are).

Marrying a wedding photographer made it very difficult to hire a wedding photographer... until we found Justin. Both my husband and I were very pleased with Justin's portfolio, professionalism, and responsiveness.

If you're looking for an experience, professional, and trustworthy wedding photographer, Justin is your guy!
What starting as a beautiful June morning ended with a tornado warning and torrential downpours during our outdoor reception. Our day of timeline had major last minute changes due to the weather. Justin handled all of the changes with ease. He was quick to send us highlights of our wedding and the rest of our photos soon followed. Jesse and I so appreciate your work, Justin! Thanks again!

Justin and his assistant were absolutely AMAZING! I had met Justin at two other weddings and already knew that his pictures are incredible. But I was still amazed and had my mind totally blown when I saw the pictures from my own wedding. He captured everything! He's like a ninja. No one remembers him being around, but he sure got the shot! On both a personal and professional level, Justin is brilliantly amazingly fantastically awesome. Don't waste your time on anyone else. Justin is worth every penny.

Words cannot describe how amazing Justin's photos turned out! The details and thought into each photo will help me tell the story of our wedding forever. Justin was great through the entire process. Paying attention to every detail and trying to make my life easier on such a stressful day. I had an outside ceremony and reception, it started to rain 20 minutes before, Justin and Charlie (additional photographer) helped the groomsmen move furniture inside our rental house to move the wedding inside. For our wedding, Justin was not only a photographer, he was part of our family. We will forever grateful. You will not be disappointed, that I can promise!
