About James Thomas Photography

A warm welcome to James Thomas Wedding Photography, your professional Cambridge wedding photographer.

With so many different styles and approaches to wedding photography finding the right wedding photographer can seem like a mammoth task. Unfortunately, there are a lot of unqualified, uninsured and inexperienced photographers marketing themselves as professional photographers, often using portfolio builder courses and photographing models for their portfolios.

My promise to you is that all the images In my gallery and on my website are from real weddings that I have captured, I am a qualified and certified member of the master photographers association which means my work has be judged by some of the best photographers in the UK. I am fully insured, use only professional grade equipment with backups in place to ensure I can provide you with a first-class service.

Always unassumingly present, you can rest assured that I will be there to capture your journey into married life from start to finish and can guarantee that you will have the most stunning photographic memories to cherish; you simply couldn’t be in safer hands on your big day.

Having got married myself in 2014 to my wife Lucy, I understand that choosing a wedding photographer is a daunting task. After all, they will be spending a lot of time with you on the most important day of your lives, so it’s important you get along with whoever you trust with this task.

I pride myself on listening to what my clients want and tailor my photography to eloquently reflect your style and uniqueness. I will capture the most important moments in your life by offering you creatively, innovative and imaginative ways to capture those memorable times.

A natural ‘people person’, I can easily put the most camera-shy couples, family members and guests at ease; I enjoy the interaction and element of fun and enjoyment that a photographic shoot brings about and my relaxed approach can give you new-found camera confidence on your wedding day.

  • "Amy and Mike - Essex Records Office and Writtle Sp"
    This testimonial was entered by James Thomas Photography on 15 May 2019

    James did the photography for our wedding in April. Me & my husband absolutely love the photos, they are fantastic! James has a true talent and a keen eye for photography. On the day James was friendly and managed to blend in with the guests and captured natural and beautiful photos. James also did some brilliant photos in the evening with smoke bombs, champagne, and sparklers – the photos really were lovely and they really capture how special our day was!

  • "Jemma & Adam"

    I couldn't recommend James enough. From the very first message I sent, James has been friendly, Professional and approachable. We had our engagement shoot with James last weekend. Both of us dislike our photo being taken but James put us at ease from the start. He made the shoot fun and really knew his stuff when it came to positions. We love the photos he has captured and can't wait to have him there to capture our Wedding Day. Thank you again James
