Last update: February 2024

Hi, I am James!

Let’s create perfect, personal and timeless wedding photos together.

Are you looking for a natural, informal (candid), unobtrusive wedding photographer that brings the fun on your wedding day? I am a Somerset based wedding photographer covering the South West of England, the UK and further a field too, all for the love of capturing your special day. I love weddings, photography and to travel!

Your wedding day is a once in a lifetime event, and your photos need to be right. Booking with me, you’ll receive great photos that you can hold and cherish forever, to share with generations to come. I help couples to get the photos they want of their big day and I quite often leave a wedding having shed a few tears myself. By offering a pre-booking consultation and a pre-wedding chat (either in person, or online) one month prior to your special day, I hope this leaves couples with peace of mind that they can relax on their big day.

To find out more about my wedding photography services, let’s chat. Alternatively I have included some important information below for you to browse.

PACKAGES:

GOLD: £995 (7 hours)

Covering just over half a day, this package caters for an ever increasing popular decision for couples that want smaller weddings, without missing out on getting great photos.

You will receive a minimum of 300 photographs all fully edited to the colour theme of the wedding flowers, with full license to print and share with friends and family. You will receive hero shots within 24 hours and a full online album between 4 to 8 weeks. You will also receive a personalised USB box with roughly a 5 free prints inside.

This package includes a pre-booking call, a meeting (either in person, or video call) one month before your wedding day and the chance to send questions whenever you wish.

PLATINUM: £1295 (Full Day ~12 hours)

Yours throughout the day and be with you from getting ready, to the evening party.

You’ll receive a minimum of 500 photographs all fully edited to the colour theme of the wedding flowers, with full license to print and share with friends and family. You will receive hero shots within 24 hours and a full online album between 4 to 8 weeks. You will also receive a personalised USB box with 10 free prints inside that you can pick yourselves via your online gallery.

This package includes a pre-booking call, a meeting (either in person, or video call) one month before your wedding day and the chance to send questions whenever you wish.

PHOTO+FILM: TBC

Starting in 2024, I will partnering up with a great videographer that is also based in the South West in Sam Baly. We are currently putting together two package options to cater for all needs and price points to take away the admin stress of booking both a photographer and videographer in one go.

Having had both a photographer and videographer at my own wedding and with many couples booking a videographer last minute, this partnership will help couples understand the positives behind booking both services and not one, then the other.

In terms of the photography included in this partnership, you will receive all the Platinum package perks and we will both be there all day for you.

EXTRA PHOTOGRAPHER:

If you are having a BIG wedding (over 120 guests), I really advise you to book a second wedding photographer for your special day. This way you will have more photos of the guests taken, different angles and perspectives of sections of your day, and also a lot more photos in your final album.

Alternatively, you might consider a second photographer when the bridal and groom prep is in two different locations and you want both covered.

I have a list of second photographers that I have worked with and I can trust. They also have the same style of photography as me, so it is a match made in heaven.

ENGAGEMENT SHOOT: Starting from £175.

One thing I would highly recommend to all couples, especially if you are not comfortable in front of a camera, is to get practise by booking an engagement photoshoot. It is also a great way to both meet with me and see how I work, so that when it comes to your big day, you can relax knowing what I will be like. You will 100% feel more at ease and get amazing photos at the same time. If you book your wedding with me, I will offer a 10% discount on this service.

ADDITIONAL HOURS INTO THE EVENING: £150 per hour. Looking to keep me on into the early hours of the morning? Then this option is perfect for you! Considered ‘anti-social’ hours, these won’t be for you on your wedding evening and I can be there for you. I might even join in for a dance, or two!

Ready to chat about your big day? Secure your date for 2024 as my calendar is almost full (dates still available) and 2025 bookings are coming in hot too!

We would highly recommend James 5*

James was the most amazing photographer at our wedding. In the days leading up he messaged us a few times to reassure us about the weather as there was a named storm due on the day. He showed us amazing photos he had taken of other couples in the rain. He was calm throughout the day but managed to get the guests in place to take photos at the right time to avoid the rain. The photos are beautiful and he really listened to what we asked for. I would highly recommend him.

WOW! What can we say about James….

WOW! What can we say about James….
He went above and beyond to capture our day more perfectly than we could have ever imagined.
He fitted in seamlessly, and a lot of the time we didn’t even know he was there.
His eye for detail is absolutely incredible and just from the ‘hero shots’ he has sent us so far we can see how talented he is. As soon as we woke up from our big day they were already sat waiting in our inbox for us to look through… which was such a great touch!
James is extremely friendly and all our guests complimented his lovely and warm manner.
His passion for photography is clear and I would absolutely encourage you to book him as your photographer.

James was simply amazing! You must book him!

I highly recommend James for your wedding photography needs! Our pictures far exceeded our expectations and James makes you feel very comfortable in front of the camera. He captures all the special moments throughout the day and does so in a very professional manner. We couldn't have asked for anyone better to be there on our day capturing our wedding!

Hands down the easiest decision you'll make!

We cannot recommend James enough. He managed to perfectly capture the essence of our wedding without feeling like you were being followed by a camera. He was so relaxed and put us at ease. We absolutely love our photos!
