The best wedding photographer's we could of ever asked for!

October & James captured our special day back in August and they did not disappoint! Professional and friendly from the very start. We both felt at ease. The photo's are perfect and beautifully capture our special day. The quality is fantastic and their eye for detail is spot on. They really do go the extra mile and you can tell they are both so passionate about what they do! We highly recommend. Thank you so much for being such an important part of our wedding day. 😊

Thank you both, for such a wonderful experience. We cannot recommend you enough

Great style, very creative - lucky find

October James were both so much fun, we couldn't believe our luck that we found them. From the start, we couldn't get over how gorgeous their style is and how they were up for anything and everything, from sparklers to smoke bombs to drone shots. Whatever they suggested, we knew it would be incredible when the photos came out, and they did not disappoint! Picking which ones to print has been a real struggle because they are all so beautiful and cleverly shot. We really appreciate the level of care, even taking time to do a site visit before the wedding to scope out the best spaces at the venue. It was very important to us to having 2 photographers so we could both have those all-important photos, and as a bride I was so grateful October was there for the inevitable getting ready crisis -- she was the only one who could figure out that old necklace!

Norfolk Wedding Photography

October and James were a wonderful photography team for our Norfolk-based wedding. They came recommended by my brother, a former professional wedding photographer himself. He had explored some collections shared by various Norfolk-based photographers and found October and James' samples to stand out from the crowd. The stand-out factor was due to (in his opinion) the content of the photography, before any touch-up/photoshop is applied -- a sign that they know what they're doing on the day, rather than relying solely on computer magic later.

And indeed, October and James prepared with us in advance, and then helped pull together an amazing collection of photos across a range of sites. We have rural Norfolk photography, urban photography in Norwich, and amazing garden photography (Plantation Gardens in Norwich).

Of course, after they were left alone to do some further computer magic, we received an even more stunning collection on a brilliant digital platform.

We read carefully through all their contract terms and conditions carefully; but we didn't ever feel like there were any surprise clauses. They treated us fairly and honestly from the outset, and we really appreciated that.

We highly recommend this pair for your photography needs.

Photography dream team

I met October & James at a wedding fair in early 2019 and decided on them before we had a date, venue or even my fiancé had met them! I liked the idea of two photographers to capture different angles, and along with their work, their personalities, chemistry and real sense of humour made my mind up straight away. With our date being secured for Oct 2020, we made sure they were available and after a lovely meeting soon put down the deposit. If you're after a couple of discrete, professional, fun, relaxed and modern photographers they are the dream team – they're amazing and their work even more so. Throughout the pandemic and our date changes, the great communication and understanding from them was appreciated and made the photography side of our wedding a total breeze. They hadn't shot at our venue when we first met as it was new, but it was only a matter of time and when our day finally came round they knew the best shots and still managed to keep it unique to us. I love the way they work together and they really understood what we wanted. My husband and I aren't the biggest fans of our photos being taken but they are so relaxed we actually really enjoyed it and had so much fun on the day, they really help take the edge off and as a couple themselves truly appreciate the moments as well as the images snapped. Their shots will never go unappreciated round our home, not a moment missed and all edited to perfection. The biggest thank you from us both for capturing our day so perfectly and putting together the most beautiful album, couldn't be happier. Matty & Marie x

Absolutely amazing photographers!!!

We cannot thank October and James enough for how fantastic they were at our wedding. They are not only incredibly professional photographers, but wonderfully fun people to have at a wedding. We got married on 30 December 2023 and as people who rarely like photographs of themselves and often avoid being in photos, we cannot believe that we love every single photo! October and James were so kind, helpful and patient throughout the entire day, going above and beyond what was expected of any photographer. They also listened to us and gave us exactly what we requested (bright, sharp photos with few black and whites). We genuinely can't thank or recommend them enough; they were amazing.

The best in the biz

We cannot recommend October and James enough in every regard. When we booked our wedding we knew it was so important for us to get the photographers just right and we got what we wanted and so much more. From start to finish October and James were professional, warm and understood what we were after to capture our day. We were nervous about posing but we needn't have been, these guys make it easy, and we loved having them join us for the day. If you are thinking of booking these guys think no more, if that weren't enough so many people have commented that our photos are better than what you would see in Vogue (they are) thank you both so much.

Wedding photo’s of dreams!!

October and James, thank you thank you thank you! We have got the most amazing wedding photos that we will cherish forever. October goes with the bridal party and James with the groom to gets those special getting ready photos of each of you. It was so fun and relaxed, most photos are just off guard, natural ones and O+J just blended in. We got the most beautiful portrait photos, everything was edited and high quality. They stayed for the duration of the day and there was no faff, timings were stuck to and everything went smoothly. If you want to have a bride and groom perspective and photos that look like they’re fresh out of a magazine - these are your guys!! 100% recommend xxx

Fun with Beautiful Photos

October and James were a perfect fit for our day. They arrived 2 hours before the ceremony so caught preceremony moments. Two different angles of the ceremony, and then beautiful photos with guests after. Both stayed until just after our first dance.
They made us feel comfortable, were professional and friendly.
Sneek peak photos were sent to us after one week so we finished our honeymoon viewing these which was just lovely. And the rest of our gorgeous photos came through within 7 weeks of the big day. Just beautiful. We are really happy with them. Thank you October and James!

Look no further for a wedding photographer!

I can not recommend October James photography enough if you’re planning a wedding, these are your guys. Even before the big day they are so organised and I feel like my ideas were really took onboard.
On our wedding day they fitted in perfectly, we didn’t notice them snapping away, but was always there for photo opportunities. The portraits with just me and my husband was actually a lovely break, and didn’t feel forced at all.
Finally, receiving the photos I was blown away, I knew from booking October you will always get high quality beautiful photos, but these were just magical.

An absolute dream

As someone who does not enjoy getting photos taken, I was really nervous about having a photographer on our wedding day. We met October and James at a few wedding fayres and completely fell in love with their style and I instantly felt comfortable with them both - I knew we had to book them and I am so glad that we did.

On our big day, both October and James went out of their way to make us feel happy and comfortable. They were present in the moments we needed them to be, fantastic with ushering our family and friends around when needed, and brought so much upbeat energy with them. They also managed to capture incredibly special moments in our day that we had no idea they were aware of (for example, a fleeting moment between my dad and I before just before I walked down the aisle) so not only are the photos absolutely stunning - they captured the very heart of our day. We are so glad that we booked October and James for our day.
