About Me

Justin Buettner-1.jpg

I'm a storyteller and I see the world in dynamic actions and bright vivid colors. I think it shows in my work. I love people, chaos, parties, fun, and romance, so wedding photography is a perfect fit for me! Even after 25 years of professional photography work, I'm just as excited about the next event as I was at my first one.

My Career


I started my career as a cinematographer in the motion picture industry. After a short stint as a motion capture artist in the special effects field, I took on the role of head of photography and graphics for in the late 1990's. My wife and I decided to relocate to the Sacramento area in the early 2000's 

to be closer to family (I grew up in Grass Valley).  That is when I started my own photography studio and I have spent the last twenty years as a wedding photographer, shooting over 1000 weddings during that time.

A Few Fun Details About Me


I love sharks (and have gone cage diving with Great Whites), I play the drums, I make short films for film 

festivals for fun (mostly comedies), I love animals and almost chose to be a vet until I learned I could not save every animal. We currently have a small zoo in my home (two dogs, four lizards, a snake. two rats, a bunch of insects, and the neighborhood cats have adopted us). I play basketball as much as 

possible. I have a lovely wife, three smart and crazy daughters that I have had the pleasure of homeschooling over the last 14 years.
