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 six years in a row (2010-2015). 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

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!

Justin was absolutely amazing!! He took the time to get to know us as a couple and traveled to New Orleans to make sure he could be the one to take pictures of our wedding. Our pictures turned out beautiful!! I don't think we could have had a better photographer! :)

Justin provided not only amazing pictures but working with him was an absolute pleasure. Justin understands that this is your wedding and not his photoshoot. Getting the pictures quickly after the wedding, the rights to them, and simply his openness and willingness to do anything and everything he can to make you happy makes Justin one of the best decisions you can make for your wedding. Jess and I considered the pictures extremely important; the wedding day itself was incredible and being able to re-live moments through the photos is almost as exciting and the quality of Justin’s pictures will keep you smiling long after the honeymoon. All of the meetings during the planning process are smooth and informative; Justin is there to educate you about options and listen to all suggestions…it couldn’t have easier. The planning process was simply the cherry on top to the stellar photographs he took.

Justin was amazing. He abandoned his family and home in Virginia to drive up to New York during Hurricane Irene to photograph our wedding (on the day of the hurricane!). We have wonderful photos and great memories. Justin is easy to work with and professional. I would recommend him to anyone getting married.

Justin is so thoughtful, professional, and talented! I was incredibly pleased. We had a really leisurely get to know you and discuss the deets meeting beforehand which really put my mind at ease for how he would handle things on the big day. He and his second shooter were so professional and discreet that after the initial hello and some discussions about our first glance session, I forgot they were there! They did an incredible job of documenting all the DIY and unique details that I (and my friends and family) slaved over. I really liked the online picture service that he uses, but he also is giving us a disc so that we own all our pictures (I noticed not all photographers do this). He offered us an iPad with the images preloaded but we already owned two so three seemed excessive. I have used my iPad to show my pictures off and it's so easy. Justin has been fabulous to work with - I can't recommend him enough!
