CT| RI | NY Wedding photographer

 Your wedding day is all about you. That's why my entire wedding photography process is customized to your priorities, venue, and wedding details. I'll make sure everything runs smoothly behind the scenes so you can focus on being present with the ones you love most. Enjoy yourself and experience the day while I make sure you have the perfect memories to look back on for years to come. Telling your love story is what I do best.



Rhode Island, Connecticut & New York Wedding Photographer


Your photography package will be custom-tailored to fit the vision you have. However, there are some details I never leave out. Each Schwalbs wedding package includes the following:

The wedding photography package

  • 3 Pre-planning sessions to get every detail
  • Custom photography timeline for family and bridal party photos
  • Complimentary Engagement Session
  • Wedding photography coverage, Tailored To Your Day
  • Film & Digital photos
  • Full edited Gallery

Want more hours? Less? Eloping to a faraway destination? We'll get all the details to determine your perfect package on our initial phone call.





Fill out the inquiry form to start the process. From there, we'll schedule a call to chat through all of your wedding details, so I can learn your vision for the day. 

After our call, I'll send you a full, custom proposal with the details, including a contract and deposit invoice to make it official and reserve your wedding date. 

It's imporant to cherish your engagement period, and that means capturing it in professional pictures to keep forever. We'll schedule an engagement session early, so we can all get to know one another and you and your partner can get comfortable being in front of my camera. This also gives you stunning photos to use for invitations, as decorations, and to share on social media with friends and family.

I like to stay in contact with my couples, so you always feel comfortable reaching out to me before the big day. A few months before your wedding, you'll complete a detailed questionnaire, including what family and friends you want special photos with, so I can perfectly plan a photography schedule that captures the moments and people that matter most. Two months before your wedding, we'll have another call to check in and discuss the timeline. Then we'll have one final call a week before to iron out any final details and make sure you feel 100% prepared and confident.  

From here, all you have to do is share your vows and dance the night away!

The Pre-Wedding Planning Sessions

Want To Remember Every Perfect Moment?

My favorite part of a wedding day is when you see the love of your life walking down the aisle. I firmly believe sunset wedding photos are the most magical, and I'm obsessed with capturing the small details in photos, that make you see, smell, and feel the same emotions every time you look upon them.  So, you can bet I’ll capture every floral arrangement and piece of décor.


Detailed wedding photos you'll cherish

I include a complimentary engagement session (you’re welcome!) with every wedding package. This session is the best way for us to get to know each other and for you two to get comfortable in front of the camera. You’ll be so much happier with your wedding photos when you know how to pose and how to follow my directions because we already practiced! Plus, these photos are a keepsake you’ll love looking back on to remember this season.

What About Engagement Sessions?


I’ve got a lot! 4 Cameras , Nikon Z6ii, Nikon Z6ii Nikon Z8 , Contax 645 Film,  Nikon 50 1.2, Nikon 85 1.2 Sigma 50, Sigma 35, Nikon 85, Nikon105, 7 Nikon flashes, and alllll the memory cards you can imagine. Alllll the film.

What Photography Equipment Do You Use for Weddings?


Absolutely! I love traveling. I’ll tell your love story with classic, timeless photos whether you’re in Hartford, New York, Disney World, or Bali. I’ve got my bags packed and ready…where are we heading?!

Do You Travel For Destination Weddings?


I make this so easy. When you book with me, I’ll send you a style guide that lays out what you should wear and how to show up looking and feeling confident. I’ve got some great location suggestions, and we’ll work together to pick the spot that works best for you. I’ll make sure you feel like a pro!

Justin is an excellent photographer! From capturing our engagement in CT, to our wedding in CA and additional memories, he was able to create flawless memories that we can cherish for life. Not only was he highly skilled with the art of photography, but was extremely professional working with our vendors and helping to ensure our day was smooth and successful. Highly recommend Justin for timeless memories and an overall fun experience to capture your engagement, wedding and more!

Justin is extremely professional to work with. He is very accommodating to your needs and how you would like to be photographed. He is extremely open to all ideas. Even if you are not comfortable in front of the camera he will make sure that you are. He truly is an amazing photographer to work with and I am so glad to have worked with him twice! Definitely will be using him again in the future!

We chose Justin for our 2023 wedding in September. It honestly was an easy choice to make. His work speaks for itself. What I didn’t realize is how above and beyond he goes for his clients. He kept me on schedule and he was everyone’s favorite person by the end of the night. My husband and I are not great about photos, but he encouraged us to do an engagement session and it made us so much more comfortable by the time the wedding came. Everyone has been raving about our photos and now we have beautiful memories forever. We can’t thank him enough.
