Justin Orr Photography
Justin photographed our 27th anniversary vow renewal at Po'olenalena beach and it was an amazing evening! Everything was absolutely perfect. He was professional and at the same time very fun to work with. We got a sneak peak at the photos on facebook and then 2 weeks later we were able to visit the website and view all the images. Now the hard part will be choosing which ones we want! I have already recommended him to one of my friends who will be visiting Maui later this month. Thanks, Justin for everything!!
We had so much fun taking pictures with Justin! We never had that "in your face feeling", instead felt immediately at ease. He was our first pick, we love the style and color of his photos. I would definitely refer Justin Orr Photography to anyone!
I never thought I would be a photographer when I grew up. I can't imagine that many kids actually say 'I want to be an awesome photographer when I grow up!!'. I graduated from Western Washington University with a BS in Organic
Chemistry in 2002, where the beginnings of my photography journey began.
My roomates for the last four years of college were either Photojournalism majors or Geology majors, and they taught me the basics of photography. The love, passion, hard work, and experimentation. I had the perfect duo of mentors: learning to tell a story with pictures via my photojournalism friend and capturing the beauty of a simple moment from my geology friend. We had the only key to the dark room in the Geology department and would develop film all night long and learned the 'old fashioned' way before Photoshop was king of post editing.
I finally graduated, thank God, but realized that the lab environment was not my cup of tea. I then made the best move of my life. I moved to Maui, Hawaii. Nowhere near the confines of a laboratory, I was in a photographer's heaven.
I love mixing up the type of photography that I do. Family portraits, corporate photography, food and wine, music and bands, travel, and of course wedding photography.
Having learned from some of Maui's great wedding photographers such as Peter Thompson, Doug Hoffman, and Bill Stockwell, I have developed my own fun, creative and artsy style. I like to have as much fun as possible with my clients. It's infectious. I start laughing, so you start to laugh, and then SNAP!! A great picture is taken.
I hope to see you out here in beautiful Maui, so check out my calendar to see what I am up to so we can schedule some time to make your vacation last a lifetime.
