Justin Barbin Photography

Justin Barbin


Justin balances the delicate thread of the past, present, and future in his images to capture something current while simultaneously remaining timeless.

He sets himself apart not only with his mastery of the technical aspects of photography but also with his profound joy in the work he creates. Watching Justin in action is awe-inspiring as he maneuvers through each event with extraordinary intuition, understanding what each event or project is needed of him. He can glide across the room making each person feel significant and valued while also knowing when reverence and space are needed, all the while being present and attentive. It is palpable in his images how much care and respect he gives to whatever subject he captures.

A proud alumnus of Northwestern University, Justin is based in Chicago and NYC, but travels extensively for high-profile events, destination weddings, and projects that span the globe.
