Hello, I'm Justin, owner of and photographer for Sky Blue Iris Photography. The wedding photography market is wide, diverse and can sometimes be intimidating; with that in mind I strive to stand apart as a friendly, reliable, creative and affordable choice in wedding and event photography. Since becoming available to clients in 2009, Sky Blue Iris has been honored to photograph over 30 weddings as well as numerous engagements, receptions, families and small businesses. I try each time I arrive at an event to push the limits of my creativity and focus on capturing all the big moments, little looks and special interactions that you may not even be aware of and roll that into a stack of photos you'll want to show off for years to come.

I started this company with the intention of falling somewhere between the costs and thick contracts of a big studio and the gamble that is having that friend or family member with the nice camera try to cover the event, in the two summers that I've been booking and shooting I believe I'm filling that niche and I think my clients would agree.

Your wedding photos are a key ingredient in a memorable day, not just for re-living the events through pictures but for the stress that's alleviated by knowing the record of your big day is being handled creatively, professionally and by someone you trust will do the job right and won't break your budget. That is where I work every day to be and that's the promise I offer to you.

Please contact me for additional information via email justin@skyblueiris.com or via phone (503) 515-6263.

I hope to hear from you soon!

Sincerely,

Justin Koeppen Read less

Having Justin as our wedding photographer was great as he was a very relaxing and calming presence at our wedding. Justin was accomodating to our needs and flexible on the day of our wedding. Justin was willing and able to get me some pictures early so that I could give them in Christmas cards and as gifts to family members. Thanks Justin!

Justin was wonderful. He's a nice, laid-back guy who is professional and knows what he's doing. He'll ask you questions about how to take your photos that you might not have even thought about yet. Our pictures were beautiful, and he went above and beyond before, during, and after the wedding. I couldn't have picked a better photographer for our big day.

Justin was very responsive to our needs and a really great person to have around at the wedding, putting our guests at ease while discreetly snapping lots of great shots of them. I wanted a really candid, vintage-inspired style of photography and he provided that. My only small note is that that while he was really quick to respond to emails, he didn't always let me know what was going on with our pictures - I had to contact him. But, as soon as I did, he would respond and try to get right on top of the issue. Great value for the money and I really would hire him again even if we were able to afford a much more expensive photographer.

We can't say enough about how happy we are with Justin! Both our engagement and wedding photos turned out absolutely perfect! When we started our search for a photographer we were concerned about finding someone who was easy to get along with, took high quality photos, and was affordable. We were so lucky to have found Justin and Sky Blue Iris Photography!! We highly recommend Justin! He even drove all the way out to the coast to take our engagement photos! Take it from us there is enough to stress about during the wedding planning, so do yourself a favor and book Sky Blue Iris!

I only wish I could give 10 stars because that is how we felt about Justin. He is fun, professional, and a true artist. He set us at ease on our wedding day, so even the "posed" photos look totally natural. He took total advantage of natural light and color, and captured our best sides - all while we were enjoying our wedding day.

Justin was amazing to have as a wedding photographer. When I contacted him, he was quick to respond and I remember that he wasnt avalible on my wedding day, but he referred me to someone else and while their portfolio was fine, I just adored Justin's. When I told him this, he was so flexible that he made himself avalible on my special day! He really went the extra mile! When he photographed our engagement session, he was patient with our daughter and even went to multiple locations! On the speical day, he took care to capture the details as well as the big picture. Not a moment was missed! I will forever treasure the pictures he took that day. Two years later and I still get compliments on my pictures! Such a great guy and such a pleasure to work with!
