I'm JP the owner of Justin-Paul Photography. I was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois, but moved here in 2005 to attend college. I was accepted into the very prestigious school Brooks Institute of Photography located in Santa Barbara, California. I started school in June of 2005 and I graduated with my B.A. in Professional Photography on April 23, 2009. I have spent my years here in California learning as much as I could about the business that I fell in love with.....PHOTOGRAPHY!! Now, I spend my time either shooting photography, or I'm spending my off days with my loving wife and our two beautiful boys, three boys if you include the dog....and we do!
I shoot all forms of Photography, Newborns, Senior Portraits, Family Portraits, Wedding Photography, Engagement Photography, Event Photography, Headshots, Food Photography, Product Photography, Industrial Scientific Photography, Travel Photography, Landscape Photography, Commercial Photography, and Architectural Photography. I absolutely love what I do for a profession and I feel blessed to be able to work, doing what I love! I have all the best skills, the best equipment, and the knowledge necessary to create powerful images, that capture the true essence of my subjects.
MY job as a photographer is to capture all the beautiful moments that nobody can afford to miss. I work hand-in-hand with my clients to make sure that the images not only match their vision, but go above and beyond their standards of quality. I feel the only way to succeed is to follow three strict rules.
1. Make sure the client/clients are the happiest they can be with my professional work ethic and standards.
2. Approach every gig with intention not only to get everything the clients needs, but to give them something extra.
3. Always look for and capture the love, feelings, connections, and qualities of all the subjects!
