Justin Turner is the photographer behind Turner Classic Photos. While attending the University of Central Arkansas, Justin found the great loves of his life: his wife, photography, and teaching. He couldn’t pick his favorite, so he spends his week days teaching English at a local high school and his weekends taking fantastic imagery. His wife, Rikki, frequently assists him during wedding. According to Justin, “It’s the best of both worlds. I get to teach what I love, practice my art, and spend time with my wife. I live a blessed life.”
Justin likes to describe his photographic style as “classic technique combined with contemporary style.” To stay current, Justin has attended seminars led by nationally recognized photographers and is a member of several photographic communities. Justin says, “I think wedding photos should stand the test of time. I try to keep up-to-date on the latest trends and utilize them when appropriate; however, I try to avoid gimmicks at all costs. In twenty years, people should be wowed by the quality of your images and not the silly effects added after the fact.”
