capturing unexpected moments

My true joy

my one true love

I am a bad ass boss bitch building an empire. Business driven and cut throat I run a team of photographers and videographers and plan to dominate the industry. JK, kind of, I am very funny tho. I was at a conference and the speaker asked the audience "Who is the most creative person you know" everyone said "children", I said "me" thankfully it was all at once so only the people sitting next to me heard me say that. I am creative, I am crafty, I love projects that challenge me and projects where I am given creative control to do what inspires me. I have built furniture, and tech gadgets, I have sewn dresses from not even a pattern, just making it up, I love to paint and create just about anything. I am straight up addicted to instagram so you can find me on there often, I share a lot about myself and my life on there, it's an easy way to get to know me a bit. I love to teach and share what I know, but I love doing that in person more than online. Mostly because I say some funny shit that I don't need evidence of on the internet forever. I love to travel, probably too much, it makes me really happy and I am constantly inspired by new places, this probably comes from me growing up in the middle east. I am brutally honest and to the point, a big fan of efficiency. (like in the office when Kevin says "why use many word when few word do trick") Things are faster if you're just outright with it. I have run this business since my second year of university, it's my first baby and I love it as much as my human babies. As much as I like to be sassy and funny, I care deeply about all of the couples that choose to work with us and their experience  with us from start to finish.

I am Justine Milton, a Calgary & Banff based photographer, videographer, educator and creative entrepreneur.

Inspired By

I am Justine Carey (Milton). I am a fine art wedding & portrait photographer with a passion for sitcoms, sour candies, and shoes (especially Louboutin’s). I love that my work allows me to meet new people and capture unforgettable days while I travel the world with my amazing husband, Alan. Alan is my second shooter, film loader,  assistant, other half of my brain, comedic relief and best friend. Between the two of us, we’ve been to 38 countries, can get by in 4 languages, and own 43 pairs of shoes (okay, that one’s mostly me). We got married in May of 2017 in the middle of an olive grove in Greece, it was the most perfect day. Our wedding was tiny and absolutely dreamy. We welcomed our son, Xander, into the world in January 2020. And our daughter, Zosia, in February of 2022. We are so in love with these beautiful creatures. Now that I have lots of practice swaddling a baby, I can’t wait to photograph more families and babies for my clients: past, present, and future!

Get to know us and our accomplishments in the industry

Justine Milton, B.Des is a professional photographer with many years of experience in the wedding industry. From her roots in photojournalism, Justine has developed her own unique style of fine art photography. She has attended workshops taught by some of the most renowned names in photography, most recently the Erich McVey workshop (California) and the Jose Villa workshop (Mexico). Justine has been recognized for her abilities in countless magazines & online publications and was recently named the CPC Top 30 Under 30 & one of Canada's 30 most inspiring photographers by Wedding Bells Magazine.

At 5 years old, Justine moved to Saudi Arabia, then on to Dubai a few years later. Upon her return to Canada, Justine channeled her creative ability into a Bachelor of Design degree at the University of Alberta, where she first trained in film photography.

Justine prides herself on her unique style of photography and her ability to predict when a beautiful moment is about to happen.

Alan Carey is an engineer with a passion for photography. He learned film photography & developing in high school and bought his first DSLR camera at 15, eventually moving into wedding photography. He found Justine before developing too many bad habits and has been her assistant/second shooter ever since. Alan’s photographic style has evolved along with Justine’s, making him the perfect complement to her.

Alan’s roots are in the Bahamas & southwestern Ontario, both of which he visits frequently.
