Hi, I'm James, a professional photographer specialising in modern, documentary style wedding photography. I provide national coverage across the UK. I like to capture natural moments, nothing forced, just the way you are together.
I absolutely love being a wedding photographer and have a real passion for wedding photography, in particular, the way in which I capture your own personal love story. Its always a pleasure to be chosen as your wedding photographer, providing you with those special images to look back on and trasure for a lifetime. One of the things I enjoy about being a wedding photographer is that I get to travel the length and breadth of the country.
I live in Berkshre, with my wife Kate and my 3 children, Ben Poppy & Teddy. I am keen music fan who enjoys attending concerts and having spent many years playing guitar in local bands, I still occassionally dust off my old acoustic and crack out a few tunes. I also enjoy attending sporting events and have a keen interest in football.
If you like the sound of me, my photography style and the relaxed approach fits in with what you are looking for, then please do get in touch, so that we can have a chat about your day.

We picked James to photograph our wedding and he did not disappoint. The photos were absolutely amazing. He felt like one of the family by the time he left. A genuinely nice guy, who made us feel special and put as at ease throughout the entire day.Sent on 08/10/2019
