My name is James Matthews. I'm an unobtrusive and colourful Wedding Photographer based in Caerphilly, South Wales, with over 30 years of Photography experience.

If you're looking for a wedding photographer specialising in capturing natural moments, you've found the right place!

So happy with eyes2me-wedding photographer

So we had our pictures off jim only 2 weeks after the wedding and there are 848 beautifully edited photographs ( we had a preview to post a thank you only 2 days after.

I am so in love with them and I never like photographs with me in them. I keep tearing up!!!! amazing!!! Can’t recommend enough-there are no words for the memories that have been captured for us - all without having to stand and smile for hours!! So many people from our wedding said how comfortable they were with having jim around. I normally hate photographs of me but I can honestly say I love them!

As a bride I always liked to read the reviews of venders before booking and I, as a recent bride can tell you 100% you won’t regret the decision to book Jim and eyes2me as your photographer, this is the best thing I chose, someone told me before I got married “flowers die but memories last a lifetime”. Memories were captured beautifully.

Lee and I would like to thank Jim for his time and work, providing us with fantastic photographs of our wedding. Jim captured every moment as it happened. We didn't want formal photographs and Jim got all the funny and informal moments and emotions that can be lost or forgotten. Jim is so friendly and all our friends and family have said how good he was. We have a beautiful heart shaped USB that is so unusual and we can print our pictures when we are ready. Eyes2me tailored the price and package to us and we are so grateful. We can highly recommend Jim, he was fantastic and so are our photos.

We can't thank Jim enough for his hard work in capturing our day perfectly. Amazing photographs that we will treasure forever. Jim is a very sincere and warm character that any couple would enjoy having present at their wedding.

Me and my partner would love to thank Jim and Kimberley for doing our photos for our wedding day. Brilliant people who did a fantastic job on our day, and made us feel really comfortable. I recommend anyone to have Eyes2me photography for their wedding. Good price and great photos which all our family and friends love. And we received them so quickly after. They were also a great help with everything before the wedding and after.
Jim was also a great help for making me feel more confident with having my picture taken with a practice trial, which helped so much before the day.
Thanks you so much xx

Jim and his Wife were fantastic at our wedding, totally professional but also totally unobtrusive, we did not even know they were there. The photos were stunning and absolutely captured our fantastic day. The after service was excellent and nothing was too much trouble. I would recommend Eyes2Me to anybody who wants to capture those special formal and informal moments.

As most brides to be know, things can get a little stressful when organising the most important day of our lives. I searched for a number of photographers in South Wales but many of them had set packages and prices with little room to negotiate.

However, I spoke to Jim who was happy to tailor to my wants and was absolutely superb! Jim and his lovely wife were not at all intrusive during the day and captured absolutely amazing photographs, which we will treasure forever. The quality of the photos are unbelievable and people can't believe how reasonably priced Jim is given the amount of work and effort that has gone into producing fabulous pictures. I would highly recommend Eyes2Me Photography and can't thank them enough!!

"A memory is only as good as the photographs" whether you are a traditionalist who plans something elaborated with lots of guests or you are thinking of something more intimate with your closest friends and family, photos are instrumental on helping you remember just how special it was.

James Matthews was the photographer along with his wife Kim and was a pleasure to work with. They are very friendly and very humble. James was very helpful on how to pose, where the best locations were and the results were incredible. My husband and I remember the day as a blur but after seeing the photos all the feelings came back this time in full colour.

Anyone and everyone who have seen the photos and the beautiful slide show they put together has been beyond impressed. I am immensely thankful to James and his wife Kim for all their talents. I would refer them to anyone looking for talented people to not only capture a meaningful moment but to create beautiful memories.
