Jamie really captured the magic of our day

Jamie went over and above. He created lots of amazing moments for us during the day which he has captured for a lifetime. He knew just how to capture the emotions of the day with both the formal and fun parts of the day.

More than we could have ever dreamt of

Where do I even start, if I could give more stars I would! Jamie is absolutely amazing. From start to finish of our wedding even before the wedding with keeping in touch through email and meetings in person he’s been a star and made our wedding that even more special. Capturing every moment so perfectly! He is such a friendly and happy person to be around making you feel so at ease when he’s pointing a camera at you and that sometimes you forget he’s even there… which if your like me and hate getting photos taken is a blessing. He was so wonderful with my son, niece and nephew when it came to taking photos of them by some magic that must be Jamie managed to get them to smile and stand where they were suppose to be, I would highly highly recommend Jamie to anyone who is looking for a photographer! He is a pleasure to work with and captures your day so naturally. I couldn’t have asked for anything more honestly. We was overwhelmed when we received our photos he truly is talented at what he does. Thank you so much Jamie for all your hard work and making our day special.

Absolutely amazing from start to finish.

Jamie was brilliant he captured our day perfectly can’t recommend highly enough. The amount of great pictures he managed to get of us and our guests without even knowing he was doing it at the time was amazing. The formal shots are great but the number of natural shots of everyone enjoying themselves has captured the day perfectly.

Red Dot Photographic -professional, personable and extremely talented.

From our first meeting Jamie fully understood our brief and the need for our day to be captured in the most natural and timeless way.

The atmosphere, emotions, personalities and the complete essence of the day are captured in the story book of over 700 photographs presented to us.

Through Jamies discreet photography we are able to relive the day with some of the unique shots almost taking us back in time to most magical memorable moments. Forever grateful

My Daughters Wedding

I was delighted when Jamie was able to attend my daughters, low key wedding. She has never had a need to be the centre of attention and was somewhat overwhelmed by the thought of having a photographer present for more than a few snaps !
Well Jamie took the time to meet us before the day, discuss what she and her fiancé would be comfortable with for their wedding day. Jamie arrived early, clicking away at the venue, ceremony room , cake and guests as they arrived. A constant click in the background then some formal wedding photos at the marriage ceremony and agreed wedding group photos. Jamie was passionate about taking some great family photos of my daughter, husband and children despite her unease of being the centre of attention, down to Jamie’s approach it became clear , what my daughter initially asked for was clearly not what she wanted on the day! Jamie’s enthusiasm was infectious and the day whizzed by click by click as their special day was captured 😘 Well Jamie took many many priceless memory photographs , many make us laugh as they capture real humorous moments in time, as well as the more formal shots“.

It goes without saying I would not hesitate in recommending Jamie for your special day, he clearly invests his time and energy in recording your magical day by knowing what you want, researching the venue for formal photos and subtly blending into the background for those priceless moment shots😂

Very friendly, positive experience, affordable

James shot our wedding day and was amazing from the first point of contact! We had 2 meet ups prior to our wedding day with lots of communication in between. I really felt like James spent the time to get to know us as a couple. He was fantastic on our wedding day and all our guests commented on how amazing he was. Our photos turned out truly stunning and I simply couldn’t pick my favourite! Highly recommend

Highly recommend - excellent candid photographer

I would highly recommend Jamie as a wedding photographer. From start to finish the whole experience was above and beyond our expectations. Jamie advertised exactly what we were looking for, so I got in touch. The communication from the first moment and throughout was excellent. We had meetings with him to discuss our wants/needs. We both hate pictures being taken but he made us feel at ease. He had never worked at our venue before but he took the time to research the venue and go there before the big day. We got our sneak peeks really quickly following the wedding, and the finished product a couple of weeks after. He made the whole process stress free. Thank you again Jamie!

Seemless, relaxed, and beautiful.

We chose Jamie as our wedding photographer for our big day this October (2023).We have nothing but good things to say about Jamie. He manages to capture the most beautiful moments. In the nicest way possible, it is so easy to forget that Jamie is there as your photographer. He works seemlessly, and is so professional and easy to get on with. When we went through our images, we both said "this is exactly why we chose him". We have so many memories that have been captured beautifully. 100% would recommend Jamie if you want someone who will really capture the true essence and memories of your day. There is no faff, just pure and beautiful pieces of your day caught on camera.

I couldnt be any happier with out photos.
Even in the lead up to our day we had a couple of meetings to discuss what we wanted and he made sure we got everything we wanted.

Beautiful Photos, absolutely fantastic service from Jamie from start to finish! 10/10 would recommend!

We're so glad we chose Jamie to photograph our wedding day! My husband and I are blown away by all the photos we received from Jamie - they are all absolutely stunning and really capture the emotion of our day! All of our guests were impressed with Jamie and said that they barely noticed him going about his work throughout the day at all!

Jamie was incredibly professional and always quickly responded to any emails or queries that we had. He listened to what we wanted from our photos and delivered exactly what we asked for and more.

We also had an engagement shoot with Jamie prior to our wedding, and straight away we were impressed with his expertise and knowledge of where the best shots would be. He was also really good at making both my husband and I feel at ease with having our photos taken.

Absolutely fantastic service from Jamie from start to finish! 10/10 would recommend!
