Connecticut & New York Luxury Photographer

My love of photography started back in high school and has only grown since then. When I was first getting started, I shadowed a photographer I knew in order to learn all about posing and lighting, and I eventually became her second shooter. 

I moved from second-shooting mitzvahs to booking my own weddings, and Schwalbs Photography was born! Through my years of photography experience, I’ve seen a lot – and I love the confidence and energy I feel the moment I have a camera in my hands.

After all these years, there’s still no better feeling than seeing the joy and excitement on my clients’ faces when I deliver their gallery. It’s a beautiful thing to give people timeless memories that they’ll treasure and pass down to their children, grandchildren, and future generations.

If I could give Justin more than 5 stars I would - he was the ideal person to have photograph my wedding and was honestly a blessing on that day. Professionally, he was on it in every way. Direct with my family during portraits (as they kept getting distracted) and kept everyone in line with our 18 person bridal party, and pulled James and I for fun photos when lighting was great. Gave James and I a minute to ourselves too which we really appreciated to take the whole day in. He even gave us a sneak preview during the reception of ceremony photos and it was a highlight to the day and so many guests saw and were so impressed with his work.

Justin was supportive, respectful, and made me feel like a model.

Justin has become our family photographer. He captured all of mine and my in-laws engagement photos along with our weddings. Justin has an awesome eye for what he does. He is able to capture moments that will make you feel as though you're the only person on the 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!

I had such a wonderful experience with Justin last year for my senior pictures! I highly recommend him to any other graduates who are looking for a personable, fun, and talented photographer. I often feel self conscious in front of the camera but he helped me pose and feel confident - I am obsessed with all of my photos

Justin did my senior portraits and I was BLOWN AWAY!
