I’m a Midwest photographer inspired by fine art with a photojournalistic flair. My goal: to unobtrusively tell the story of your day and your love. You can find me chasing light across the globe. When I’m not busy working behind the camera, I enjoy gardening in my backyard, in Champaign, Illinois or I’m on a culinary adventure in my native home of Chicago or abroad, whenever affordable.

Wedding photography puts me right in the heart of all the action. I’m a sucker for unique aesthetic experiences and there’s always something new to learn from my clients. Through capturing weddings, I get to dive right into the crux of people’s endless creativity. Watching couples celebrate their commitment and fall in love all over again that very day — it’s this type of collaboration that inspires me… and to be honest, it doesn’t get any better than that.

I graduated the University of Illinois in Art History and in 2010, I received my Master of Art in Art Education with a certification to teach. After years of making images for myself and friends, I finally decided to bring my dream job to fruition and I’ve worked tirelessly ever since. Now, as Justine Bursoni Photography, my passion for photo is my life and business; it’s my contribution to the world. Truly, nothing makes me happier than sharing it with others. The oohs and ahhs about my art is what keeps me going!

I do much of my work throughout central Illinois and the Chicagoland area. I am also available for travel (out-of-state, destination) at extremely affordable rates.
