Born in Vancouver, Canada, and currently residing in Portland, Oregon, Joe Milton has been shooting weddings since 1990. His work has frequently been featured in Portland Bride and Groom magazine and his commercial clients include Ritz Carlton and Team One Advertising.

He was the 2004 Wedding Photojournalist Association's Artistic Photographer of the Year and has won thirteen top 10 finishes in WPJA contests. He is an alumni of the Foundation Photojournalist Workshop and continues to create compelling non-traditional wedding photos that make you look twice.

He is the founder of the International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers, a worldwide organization of the world's top wedding photographers.


Many photographers will claim to shoot weddings as a photojournalist, but labels are easy to throw around. I approach your wedding day quietly and unobtrusively, with a fierce determination to record it authentically as a documentarian.

In practical terms, that means I won't make the groom "dip" the bride, I won't spend hours putting the couple through a mock fashion shoot, I won't put the bride's veil over the groom's head, and I won't make the wedding party all jump at the same time. I have an uncompromising style for clients who know they don't want cliché wedding photography, but would rather have honest, surprising, and deeply personal images of their wedding day.
