Testimonials from Clients and Colleagues in Minnesota, links to their profile and services performed

Event clients:

“I am the University of Minnesota Alumni Association’s Director of Events, and I’ve served in that role since 2019. It is my absolute pleasure to highly recommend Justin. We hire for him for every single one of our large signature events. The gallery below represents the coverage at our largest formal event of the year, Annual Celebration. At this event we takeover the entire first floor of McNamara Alumni Center to give space for our 500 attendees to interact with a variety of activations & sponsors.

Justin’s vibrant style and eye for detail capture not only the scope and scale of our events, but the smaller interpersonal interactions that help translate guest experience into photos. His galleries are chock full of photos you’ll fall in love with and be able to use over and over again in marketing & promotional materials. On site he does a great job blending the ability to capture photos in the background and interacting with guests to stage the “perfect” shot.

I couldn’t recommend him highly enough.”

“I cannot recommend Justin enough for event photography! We hired Justin for two of our largest conferences and he exceeded all expectations. Not only does Justin take wonderful photos but he also is a fantastic communicator and truly takes the extra steps to ensure you don't have to worry or continually direct him. He spent so much time learning about our constituents, what our needs were, and what we wanted out of our photos, we felt he had been apart of our team for years! And, to top it off, Justin even took the time to interact and network with our constituents which was something we & our constituents greatly appreciated. Not only is he a great photographer, he is a great human!

“Justin is an excellent photographer! He is incredibly easy to work with and receives direction so well. We hired him for one event and quickly knew that we found "our guy". We have hired him for multiple events since. Event photography can be tricky to get candid shots that really capture the event. People tend to stiffen up when the camera is on them. Justin has an amazing ability to jump in, take the shots and get out before they even noticed him. Because of this, we've been able to build out a wonderful library of images that we use to push our brand. I can't say enough great things about him and his work ethic.”

“Justin has photographed a series of industry events for us. He is always professional, has a high level of expertise, is very personable and (most importantly) the quality of the photographs we receive from him is always outstanding.


 

I recently worked with Justin for event photography at an upscale holiday event and he was great to work with throughout the planning process, during the event and afterward. A professional throughout the process, he customized the process to fit for my group and exceeded my expectations. I am looking forward to the opportunity to work with him again.

"Justin is a credit to the industry. His photos are always spot on, he finds just the right shot in a room full of people at a conference. He is personable, professional, arrives early, promptly sends us our photos when edited, and is overall awesome. He is a self starter, a problem solver, and really knows how to work with people. We always hire Justin when we host events in Minneapolis ~ he's the best in the business!"

Ag Club Director at HighQuest Partners


 

“His photos are beautiful. He shot our conference like a photojournalist, documenting the rand scale of the event while capturing the intimate moments that communicate the human element so often overlooked. The composition of the photos was exquisite, allowing me to use them for social media posts, intergraded marketing pieces, posters and more.

Justin is a joy to work with. He is a consummate professional. We were lucky to find him.

We will be hiring him again.”

“Justin is an amazing photographer! He is very professional, passionate in his work, and punctual. Justin was asked to bring a project we had to life and did a remarkable job making it happen when others told us it would be hard to do. If you are looking for a talented, creative, out of the box photographer look no further.”

“We really wanted our website the second time around to be much simpler, and we wanted the pictures to tell the story. We wondered if it was possible for someone to come in and tell our story, but Justin was perfect for it. We were able to start with the photos, then build the website around that.”

“Since taking this project on, I’ve been so impressed with how Justin worked so passionately to help us, really making the project his own. I didn’t expect that, and you don’t see that kind of commitment very often anymore. It’s been a pleasure working with him.”
