Exactly what we wanted

James understood as soon as we contacted him what we were looking for. We had seen his work from a friends wedding and really liked it.
James was really prepared and we’d met ahead of the wedding to discuss the venue.
He was really light touch during the day, and really creative with some of the shots that have come through.
We didn’t want anything too ‘staged’ which he completed got, so we have some really lovely moments captured.
I would highly recommend James. What a delightful photographer to work with.
Our photos are gorgeous!

Friendly, approachable and professional, with beautiful Photos to prove it!

James was amazing!! From the start, he was super approachable, easy to talk to and professional. He knows exactly what he's doing and it shows in his work.
On our wedding day he was prompt and worked non-stop (even in the 32 degree heatwave!).
He was so easy to work with and had great communication throughout.
Myself and my husband are so very happy with our beautiful photo's and especially the stunning photo album James put together for us!
Thank you James!!!
