Vendors Unveiled: Justin & Mary

The first time I came across Justin & Mary's work was in the form of a photo shoot they did with two fellow local coordinators. The photos were amazing... they were moody and strong and truly created a palpable atmosphere that is difficult to even describe. This week, we are featuring this incredible couple and we know you will love their work as much as we do!

Name: Justin & Mary


Blog: same! we have a "blogsite"

Where are you located, and what geographical area(s) do you service?
We are based out of New Haven, CT but we travel all over the world!

How long have you been in business?
We both went full time in September 2006. We were sort of part time before then, but that's really what we consider the start of the business we have now!

What drew you to photography as a profession?
Justin was basically born with a camera in his hand. Seriously, we have a picture of him when he was about 3 holding a toy camera. For me, I always loved photography but never really had a way to learn it until I fell in love with a photographer. And the photography just seemed to flow from there. :) Bold

What do you feel sets you apart as a photographer?
We really consider our clients our friends. We understand what they are going through (having gone through it ourselves not too long ago). And that kind of trust and relationship makes it possible for us to get the shots that we wouldn't otherwise. For us, it's all about making the couple comfortable....because then they will reveal their true selves to us and the rest just fits.

What do you love most about your job? Bold
Working together. It's also incidentally, the thing that probably makes us the most crazy. We literally spend 24 hours a day, 7 days a week together...and that's a lot of time for any couple to be together! But we push each other, demand the best from one another. And we know...we're stronger together and better together. And at the end of the day, I can't imagine not waking up and going to work with Justin. Because for us, it all starts with love. Our love. Love of each other. Love of what we do.

If you had to describe yourself in one word, what would it be?
