    Fantastic photographer

    James was the photographer at our daughter's intimate garden party wedding in July 2021.
    From the first message sent to James to the moment we received the wonderful photos, which even had a personal touch, with the memory stick matching the theme of the wedding, he was an upmost professional. He went out of his way to take the best photos to capture every part of a most memorable day. Would highly recommend James Arnia. Thank you James.

    fantastic service highly recommended

    the service was outstanding and professional and has a good sense of humor and reliable, I would recommend this service to everybody who needs this service and i will be using this service again but not for marriage as I'm married to Steve lol, I would use this service if you do this as family portraits, we are planning a wedding party soon as we could not have this in march due to covid so will be in touch with this in near future

    Amazing service for our Wedding!

    Me & my wife can’t recommend James enough - nothing was too much trouble and photos produced have been amazing! James was so friendly, and it was a pleasure to have him as part of our big day, he blended in as if he was a guest of ours. James was without a doubt the best value for money in comparison to all of our services on the day.

    James Arnia Photography's reply:

    Thanks so much for your kind words. It was a wonderful adventure with your lovely friends and family.

    Capturing natural moments

    When looking for a photographer I wanted to capture the moments of the day, not the perfectly planned ones but the moments we will remember and laugh together about in 50 years time. This was achieved and I couldn’t recommend James more, the black and white photos are amazing as well as the colour ones

    James Arnia Photography's reply:

    Ooooh Charmaine!!!!

    Thanks so much. Your wedding was such a blast I enjoyed every minute.

    Have an awesome 2022!!!

    Amazing Photos

    We found James very late in our planning as our photographer fell ill. James was brilliant, almost invisible on the day, I was so unaware of his presence. However, the natural pictures he produced were gorgeous. Captured every detail of the day. The natural expressions of us and our guests were a joy to look at. So pleased we found him! We also transferred our favourite photo into a brilliant Christmas Card. Thanks James. Highly recommended.

    He listened to what I wanted and definitely delivered.

    So pleased James got in touch with us when I was looking for a photographer for my wedding. He listened to what I wanted and definitely delivered. The photos are absolutely amazing I couldn’t of asked for more. James is fantastic at his job and was a pleasure to work with him, his pictures have definitely captured the spirit of the day. Some of the moments caught on camera were so precious and it was an absolute joy looking through the pictures of our special day to relive them again.

    Dan & Beverley

    We love the photos that James took of our big day. We didn't really know what we were doing so it was great to have someone experienced to capture it all. We were made to feel really at ease which is reflected in our photos. Thanks James!

    Easy going and very flexible with all the date changes

    It was a pleasure having James photograph our special day, he was very easy going and got on with all the guests. Our wedding was postponed many times and he was super flexible with rescheduling. The turn around from the wedding day to the photos being sent (via a lovely flash drive- great little touch) was quick.

    Thank you James!

    Joe and Sam
