    Amazing service from start to finish

    We can’t recommend James enough. His photography speaks for itself. If you’re looking for documentary style with some traditional photos then book now! Exactly when we were looking for. Not only are the photos fantastic but James was great throughout the process. Really professional over email and phone but also really reassuring and calming despite the chaos of the day! Thanks so much

    Thanks Rebecca. As I said you allowed me to be in my element on your day. I had so much fun capturing all those special moments.

    All the best for the future.

    Surprise, Surprise, Surprise!

    James was hired to take pictures of a day full of surprises. He is so friendly, amenable, calm and unintrusive that a couple of our guests asked if we had a photographer. And yet he captured every poignant moment and, many, many more, superbly. It was a a day that demanded a lot from his services and he delivered in buckets. The final resulting pictures are everything we wanted and more.

    Firstly I gathered our close family at a ruse restaurant venue to celebrate my birthday. Then I marched them across the road to the register office where my beautiful bride was waiting unbeknownst to any of them.

    Ceremony completed and secrecy secured we all went onto the final venue where a further 120+ had gathered waiting to spring a surprise only to be surprised by our arrival as a married couple.

    I read a review that was disgruntled about his footwear. James is a snap little dresser and wore multicoloured shoes, but a clown he DEFINITELY is not!!

    Thank you James - you have captured our day and all of its wonderful memories.

    Excellent!

    I could not recommend James enough! Myself and my wife got married during a storm and we were so sceptical if anyone would make it but the photos would not show you that! James was amazing so friendly and made our day that little bit brighter despite the stress of it all!

    Even from planning the wedding James communicated with us throughout and answered any questions would have!

    Once receiving our photos me and my wife both looked through them and everything we had requested was photographed we have some amazing photos of family members and friends that are just so natural! Even of ourselves smiling and laughing with one another. I could not thank James enough for everything and making those memories special and something we can continue to look back on for the rest of our lives. Would highly recommend.

    We were so happy to have James as our photographer!

    James had been amazing from start to finish, the photos came out amazing and we received the gallery pretty quickly after the wedding day. James managed to get all the photos we wanted posed and a lot of photos in the moment as well! Thank you so much 😊

    James Arnia Photography's reply:

    Amazing from start to finish!

    Honestly we cannot recommend James enough! Right from the initial phone call where we decided to book down to the post wedding emails, everything has been spot on. On the day he arrived and instantly started snapping some amazing shots. At times we barely knew he was there (which is what we wanted, we opted for more natural candid photography) and even when the day went a bit off course he was so accommodating and just a genuine and chill person! Made us feel at ease throughout our wedding. We recently received our photos and can’t believe how awesome the shots turned out, plus he got them back to us so quickly which is always a bonus! We were able to truly sit down and relive our day through these images. James edited them to our specific colour grade requirements, and every shot looks perfect. We are both so so happy and would recommend him to anyone! Thank you so much James, you made our wedding even better ☺️

    Hi Lucy,

    Thank you so much for your kind words.

    I really enjoyed covering your day. The two of you were made for each other and your friends and family were a dream to work with.

    Wishing you all the best for the future.

    James

    Stealth Like With Fab Shoes!!!

    Looking at our photographs was just like being back in that moment! Our special day was captured perfectly without obtruding, in fact quite stealth like, we didn’t even notice him there clicking away! Very obliging with our requests for certain photographs. We are very happy & will definitely recommend!
    Thank you for being part of our special day!!!

    Mr & Mrs Poynton

    It was an absolute delight to have James as our photographer on our special day he went above and beyond to get everything we wanted, he managed to capture some amazing photos of out autistic son and we'll be forever grateful of that! Nothing was to much trouble at any time! James is such a lovely man and we'll definitely hire him again if ever needed and recommend him to others ❤️

    Excellent!

    James was the ultimate professional from the first phone call to the final product delivery!

    The photos of our day were perfect and I really felt James understood our remit and got our vibe! He’s captured our day perfectly and is a lovely guy to boot! And we even shared our love for favourite band with him.
