High School Senior/Portrait & Wedding Photographer 

Based in West Hartford Ct & Beyond 

Welcome We are so Glad you Could Make It !

I love photographing a bride walking down the aisle, the groom seeing his bride for the first time as she walks down the aisle. The joy I can create during sunset portraits, those are my favorite moments during a wedding day. To having graduating seniors and college grads and watching them celebrate the most amazing time in their life. Capturing that first time first photo moments when you get engaged These are the moments I love capturing. 

I love doing photography... But what I love is that, I get to share memories and capture them. Whether it being on your wedding day, having the bride walk down aisle, and capturing the first look or a small intimate first look where it is just you to and no one else. To rocking it on the dance . These are just some of my favorite moments that I love ! My favorite part is when I can sneak you both out for sunset portraits and get the most breathe taking portraits of you both. Not only do I love photographing couples, but I really love capturing high school seniors when I first started out I was in high school. So I know where they come from I love that they get to celebrate such an amazing time in their life, and what they are most proud of!
I am so thankful every time  I leave a wedding , engagement session, as well as a portrait/ high school senior session my heart is just so full, I cannot wait for you to not only be my client  but to be a friend !

Loving on My Clients 

"I met Justin a little less than a year ago. I was referred to him by a co-worker and his brother. I couldn't have made a better choice for a photographer. His work continues to blow me away. My fiance Tony and I just had our engagement session a couple Sundays ago. The photography came out absolutely amazing! The fall weather was spectacular as well as the place Justin suggested to have the session. He worked with us on exactly the setting we wanted and was very patient with photographing our senior dog (in the dog photos). I've never had more compliments on photos taken of tony and I the whole time we've been together. Even another couple we know whose getting married now wishes they used him for their engagement session. He was very detailed very patient with us and I've never felt more comfortable in front of a camera. He is a true artist and we'd recommend him to anyone. We love you Justin!!"

"I knew the moment I met Justin that he was the one I wanted to photograph our wedding! He understood our vision for our wedding and was excited to be a part of it. He is full of life and is very passionate about his photography. I didn't have to worry with him by my side because he knew what I wanted and I got exactly that. I get teary eyed with emotion and happiness everytime I look at my wedding pictures because he was able to capture every magical moment, it was perfection. We met Justin looking for someone to photograph our special day and ended up with an amazing friend for life. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for capturing our love on our special day!"

I graduated college this May and needed senior pictures. The company that the university hired took plain, dull and unflattering pictures. So instead I went to Schwalbs Photography. Justin did my senior portraits and I was BLOWN AWAY! He has an incredible eye. The photos came out better than I could have ever imagined. He knows exactly where the sunlight is going to hit your face and achieves the perfect look. He knows how to angle and position his clients in a way that makes them look and feel beautiful. I felt so comfortable and relaxed with Justin. During the photo shoot he was a joy to be around and was incredibly professional. I would recommend Schwalbs Photography for any occasion!



Justin is an amazing person and photographer. In the past few years Justin has become our family photographer. Justin captured all of mine and my in laws engagement photos along with our weddings. Justin has an awesome eye for what he dose . He is able to capture moments that will make you feel as though your the only person on earth at that very moment. Justin's personality always is to be happy and up lifting during all our times working together. I love all of our photos and cant wait to work with Justin again.

Justin is mature beyond his years. We have had the pleasure of meeting other members of his family over the years through his friend/my son. His Mom, Dad and brother. When my son told us that he had a "friend" that could do our photography, we were like "uh huh." But knowing my son's serious demeanor being a Marine Sergeant, and knowing his brother since their high school days, we decided...ok. Well, let me tell you, he was given a "trial run" for our engagement pictures and since then, we would not employ any other photographer. Professional , courteous and focused. You have seen our wedding pictures. He captured the essence of the day and ALL of our guests have raved about the pictures. We have been extremely impressed, immensely satisfied and very proud of him and his craft. We are happy to call him "friend.”

Justin has been doing my photos for 6 years and He is the only Photographer I trust! He always knows the best lighting & angles for the current situation. He always picks the coolest locations to take images at and they always come out to die for!! I cannot recommend him enough!! He truly is the best!!!
Thank you 
Justin for everything !



I recently graduated from college and knew I wanted to get pictures taken so I can remember this exciting time in my life. By being a close friend of Justin’s, I knew right away that I wanted him to do them for me. I knew I could trust him to take gorgeous pictures. Whenever I see Justin’s work I am blown away. He captures the most beautiful pictures. When I reached out to Justin, he knew just the time and place to go to capture some of the most stunning pictures I have ever seen. I had a blast doing the shoot with Justin. He made me feel so comfortable and excited throughout the entire shoot. I would recommend anyone and everyone to use Schwalbs Photography for any special moments in their lives. I can’t wait to do more shoots! Thanks so much Justin!!!
