We had such a good time shooting with James, he was very professional and real good even while shooting in the Rain! And the pictures came our better than we planned.

Best day of our lives!!!!

We are so grateful to have booked James as our wedding photographer. He was so patient all day and really helped us feel at ease when it was time to do our more posed pictures together. We had a brilliant day and now we have all of these beautiful photos to look back on to remember it. Thank you!!!!!

We couldn’t have possibly asked for anything more!

Well yesterday morning we went through them with a cup of tea and there was a whole new round of tears (from Helen mainly). We are blown away and have now sent the link to all our friends and family who are sending hundreds of compliments that we dont deserve as its all your hard work! We are now trying to pick some to order as prints for around the house and not sure how on earth to pick… if we aren’t careful the whole house will be a shrine to the wedding as we want to print them ALL!!!!!!!! You’ve captured us and our personalities and the general happiness of the day so well. As one of my friend said when she saw the couple shots “Absolutely gorgeous, they really encapsulate you both and your love, I know that may sound silly as its photos of you, but they’re so spot on”. The lighting is stunning and the ones of everyone at dinner in the conservatory is the most dreamy lighting I am finding myself just staring at the photos of the tables even thinking just how beautiful it all looks! A huge thank you from us both, we couldn’t possibly have asked for anything more. You’re a super hero!

SO GOOD! We are so pleased!

James kindly travelled a little way to photograph our wedding and produced photos we can happily look back through over and over again for the rest of our lives. He was accomodating to all our requests and had a chilled out presence, making us both feel entirely at ease in front of the camera which was perfect for two people who don't spend much time in front of one. We highly recommend and don't have a bad word to say. Thanks again James 👍🏼

A pleasure

We’ve just seen our daughter Codie and husband Martin’s wedding pictures and have to say, they are absolutely stunning. I personally love the composure of each photo, where he is positioned makes them so geometrically perfect and the focus on the subject is spot on, using a short depth of field in most images. He captured the day to a tee and was far from intrusive, so much that I don’t remember seeing him! If you need a photographer, you won’t find better.

Five stars!

James photographed our wedding back in April 2018 and did an absolutely wonderful job! We hardly noticed his presence and adored the resulting photos. We highly recommend him!

What an incredible photographer

We were honestly so lucky to have found James Stanhope, he is an amazing photographer. He was so attentive to our needs prior and during the wedding.

He was very calm during the wedding which made things easy for us. He takes all the photos you could every need and want. We have so many gorgeous photos of our wedding.

And very importantly he delivers the edited photos in good time :)

Thank you so much for capturing our wedding James.
