Last update: March 2024

Hi, I'm James, A multi-award-winning (Hitched Wedding Awards 2023 & 2024, Best of Bridebook 2024) documentary wedding photographer

I've realised that every person loves to hold beautiful and empowering memories with their loved ones that can be cherished forever. No matter how many days or years have gone by and how many countless anniversaries you have spent together as a couple, your wedding photographs need to be so vivid that they can depict all of those moments from your big day and bring it all flooding back. This is the brilliance of what I do.

Your wedding day is supposed to be nothing less than a fairytale, where you are madly dipped in pure love and have a genuine flow of emotions. If you get stressed or overwhelmed, it will significantly impact your poses and make your smiles forced. So as well as being your photographer, I'm here to help you laugh, reassure you and slot in alongside your day, I'm always seen as one of the guests by the end of a wedding day.

My primary focus is to capture your delightful, candid pictures. These unscripted interactions can include the tearful embrace between a bride and her mother, the loud laughter shared with friends, and the stolen glance of love between you and your partner. These moments genuinely define your day, and I have a knack for immortalising these moments with my camera.

An Investment in Memories

Your wedding photographs are more than just beautiful, they are a priceless investment of memories that will last a lifetime. Years from now, these photographs will transport you back to your wedding day's sights, sounds, and emotions. They will become treasured heirlooms, shared with your family, friends and even your children, showcasing the essence of your love story.

I truly believe that choosing Adept Imagery is an investment. I take that responsibility seriously, ensuring every image captures your special day's raw beauty and emotions. You can trust me to document your story with artistry and care, creating a visual narrative that will only increase in value to you the longer that time goes on.

Why me?

I'm an award-winning, highly motivated, and creative documentary wedding photographer with in-depth knowledge of perceiving moments and capturing them with my lens. I ensure that the quality of my imagery is amalgamated with bright and vibrant colours, and my airy signature-style photographs add a unique artistic flair.

I think the wedding day belongs to you. So, I'll let you relax and I will focus more on natural, relaxed photography. These candid pictures do not include stiff postures, frowning faces, or forced smiles. Instead, my images tell a story from angles that you didn't witness on the wedding day.

So, if you want to relive the beautiful golden memories of your big day long after the event, get in touch!

Very limited 2024 availability.

Fantastic, couldn't ask for a better photographer for the day

James was fantastic throughout our journey towards our wedding day, he was very communicative. Tailored to our needs, extremely laid back and with the short notice we had due to a let down he was brilliant. Highly reccomend him, he got some fantastic photos of everyone. Memories captured forever. Huge thank you from myself and Jessica

James has an the perfect demeanour to make you feel at ease while he captures the memories of your special day!

My husband and I both loved having James photograph our wedding day. He made us feel relaxed and was completely non intrusive. Which I can assure is extremely important to the two of us who are very uncomfortable having photographs taken of ourselves. We hardly knew that he was photographing us the majority of the time, which means the photos have captured the authenticity of emotions from the day. We have a beautiful collection of memories captured that we can treasure forever. We can't recommend James enough as a wedding photographer.

Another thing to mention is that guests commented on how great James was on the day too!

Huge thankyou James,

Mr and Mrs Landymore 😊

Perfect for us

James was the perfect photographer for us. We were after a relaxed vibe, no intrusive stuffy posing for formal photos and this is exactly what he delivered. He is such a lovely guy so precessional but friendly. Nothing was too much trouble and he was so unintrusive just mingling with the guests and getting the candid shots we were after. He captured our vibe and our day perfectly. We are over the moon with our photos, but gutted that receiving them is the last piece of the jigsaw and the wedding is all over, but happy the marriage has begun and we have all these wonderful photographs to remember our day. Thank you so much James. I will definitely recommend you to anyone and everyone.

Highly Recommended Photographer

James has been a tremendous photographer to my wife and I. Having taken the time to do research on photographers for our wedding, I was intrigued by his professionalism, the time taken to have a zoom meeting about his services and what to expect. On the wedding day itself he was a great presence, capturing the day extremely well in an efficient and considerate manner. He has effectively produced the most authentic pictures which have been well received and complimented by many. We would highly recommend James for any professional photography services you may require. We look forward to seeing the great works he will continue to do. Thank you James for your services.
Kind Regards

Beautiful shots for a light and airy feel

If you're looking for a photographer that will make you feel comfortable whilst delivering shots you want then James is your person! We wanted a pastel, light and airy feel to our wedding and he delivered exactly this. Our gallery was huge and of stunning quality - you will not be disappointed.

I can’t think of a good enough word

Honestly amazing, I’m very very camera shy but James is such a lovely person his personality differently helped! Loved seeing the first few photos he sent across and excited to see the rest!

Excellent professional photographer

We wanted a photographer for our special day, that just blended in and we didn’t spend time having to sit and pose for unlimited photos. He was professional, and all the people who attended commented on his friendly approach and professionalism to all on the day. He worked relentlessly through the day in the extreme heat and the final selection of photographs were exceptional.
We liked the option of colour or black and white prints, and the random photographs taken made our day even more memorable as he captured elements we did not see.
My niece is getting married in 2025 and she already is looking to use James. Couldn’t of asked for anyone better to capture mine and Carolines special day on September 8th 2023 at Skylark Farm.

Wonderfully relaxed, exactly what we wanted in a wedding photographer!

James was the perfect photographer for our day..neither of us feel comfortable having our photo taken and so wanted relaxed, in action shots, James is exactly rhe right photographer for this, he held a video call with us prior to our wedding to go through everything which was a great way to get to know him, he constantly smiles, relaxes everyone else and just blends into the crowd! If I ever remarried I would 100% book him again, so book him!!!

Wedding day

We had Adeptimagery do our wedding on August 3rd 2023. I picked him as I had seen some of his work and it was beautiful. He kept in contact with me right up until the day and even came round to discuss the day and what pictures I'd like and wich ones I didn't he came on the day very well presented he is very reasonably priced and had different packages to suit your budget. He was a true gentleman and interacted with all the guests. Definitely recommend such a good photographer.

Absolutely amazing photographer!!

To say we are glad we chose James as our photographer would be a massive understatement! From the first email I felt that he was our best fit and I was definitely right. He fit into our day perfectly, he was a pleasure to have there, he got on with all of our family and friends, making us all laugh and they have all commented on how ‘funny and awesome’ he was.
The photos- wow! They are absolutely stunning, they’ve captured our day perfectly, we relived every emotion of the day looking through them. We couldn’t be happier and cannot recommend this photographer enough! Thank you so much.

James was fantastic!

James photographed our wedding in July 23 and can say he is absolutely fantastic. He was very professional from start to finish. During our day he blended in throughout taking some lovely candid snaps, we often didn’t know where he was and had great banter with our guests 😂. He made us feel at ease through the posed photos and worked in unison with our videographer ensuring we got great content for both. We received our photos in good time and when we asked for some slight edits James was more than happy to oblige and we really couldn’t be happier with the final images. I’d highly recommend you book James if you want a high quality service!

Perfect for our Special Day

James was perfect for our small, informal wedding. He captured the day beautifully and had an unobtrusive style that was laid back but professional. In fact, he felt more like a welcome guest. He also gave us a bespoke package that was very competitive on price and catered to exactly what we wanted. I would highly recommend him.

James felt like one of the guests!

James was a wonderful addition to our special day! He made the whole party feel at ease, cracking jokes with the groomsmen and capturing some hilarious and heartfelt moments throughout the whole morning!

The photos came back beautifully and once we've replenished our savings a little I will absolutely be purchasing the physical album!!

Thank you so much James for everything you did for us on our day, and we are incredibly appreciative that you took a little extra time with us to make sure we got plenty of beautiful shots to remember the whirlwind of a day forever!!

Exceptional!!!!

From start to finish, we found James to really understand our needs and he totally delivered on the day. He was creative with his approach and really took advantage of the surroundings of our venue, Avoncroft Museum. Can't recommend him highly enough.
