Contact Justin Souza







I'm Justin Souza. I'm a father to two ridiculous mop-haired boys, an extensively published writer, husband to a genius poet (who also happens to be an incredible partner at this whole wedding photography thing) and an adventurous geek who lives with a camera in hand. Not like a cyborg, exactly, but let's just say that if that becomes an option in the future, I'll look into it. 
 
When I say I want your photos to be just so, I don't mean that solely as a pun on my name - I want them to be a perfect reflection of your day, of the big emotions and spontaneous moments you'll want to remember forever. That means I lean heavily towards the photojournalist style of wedding photography, capturing your day as it unfolds organically around us. I'm going to lay in a gutter or climb on that unsteady picnic table or seemingly abandon you at the end of a dock in an embrace in the moonlight to get that just so shot. We're going to laugh together or, at the very least, you will laugh at me, which is almost as good.

Where are you located? Do you charge a travel fee for weddings not in your location?

Modesto, CA. I charge a $50/hour travel fee for anything over 100 miles from Modesto, but you'd be surprised how many cities are within 100 miles of us.

How long have you been in business? How many weddings have you photographed as the main photographer?

I've been shooting weddings for almost a decade and have photographed dozens at this point. I wouldn't be able to guess a number.

What's the typical wedding coverage package that you offer? What is the price?

Most people go with our Deluxe Package, which includes 8 hours of coverage from one photographer covering getting ready, ceremony, formals and reception; 4 hours of coverage from a second photographer covering getting ready and ceremony; complimentary 1 hour engagement session with travel fee waived for locations within 30 miles of Modesto, California. This package is $2850.

Do you have a studio where we can meet? Do you use Skype?

Most of our clients live far outside the Central Valley, so I usually do official meetings over Skype but occasionally meeting in person at a coffee shop.
