About

On Hitched.co.uk since 2023

Last update: July 2024

I'm a photographer specialising in natural documentary-style photography. I love capturing the biggest day of your life without the added pressure of having to pose for half of the day.

We will take as many photographs of you as a couple or with your families as you require, and since we love getting creative, we also encourage you to spend less time posing and more time on the dance floor.

Your wedding day could be the only day you'll have all your friends and family in the same place, we understand the importance of this and make the most of it!

I often work alongside my wife, Hannah. She is a wedding video content creator providing an unlimited amount of video coverage to the newlyweds just one night after the wedding! We offer joint packages, or can be hired solo.

Wedding Diaries Photography is a wedding photography company near East London.

They honestly felt like friends we had for years, everyone commented on how lovely they both are

Where do I begin? James and Hannah captured our day in September and I can honestly say the BEST choice in supplier we (I 馃檮馃槀) made. I am extremely anxious/ awkward having my photo taken and they both made us feel so comfortable and relaxed. They honestly felt like friends we had for years, everyone commented on how lovely they both are. Hannah sent through 100s of photos and videos by the time we woke up the day after the wedding including a brilliant highlights video that everyone loved that I was able to put on fb straight away. We got our pro pics from James recently and all I can say is wow, I鈥檓 so so happy with them the quality and QUANTITY there was 100s all in different colours and black and white ( I absolutely LOVE black and white) are just incredible I honestly couldn鈥檛 be happier if your looking for photographers I promise you will not be disappointed with James and Hannah I would put money on it thank you (again馃槀) guys your the best xxx

James had send our sneak peaks within 72 hours and full album within a few weeks, and again, the quality was incredible

Honestly not sure where to begin! Hannah and James, you are incredible. From the moment we met you both, you instantly put us at ease, it were as if we have known you forever. You are both experts at what you do and booking you both was one of the best decisions we had made for our wedding. From our highlights reel to sunglasses trend and bride transformation by Hannah, to the beautiful photos and intimate moments captured by James, just WOW. Thank you for being there every step of the way, being our friends and making us realise that there was nothing to be anxious about in front of the camera. Hannah had sent hundreds of videos, highlights, trends and picture through the next day and the quality was exceptional. James had send our sneak peaks within 72 hours and full album within a few weeks, and again, the quality was incredible. You both captured our day perfectly and captured parts of the day we never thought we would get! Thank you for everything you did for our wedding back in April, being our friends, content creator and photographer for the day. Honestly couldn't recommend both Hannah and James enough, absolute dream team!

I am so grateful for the memories you've captures forever

We hired James to be our wedding photographer last month. Within a couple of days we were sent about 10 photos which was very exciting! We've just received out full album and we're over the moon! James has captured lots of moments I hadn't realised happened, including photos of family members we'll cherish forever. If you're looking for a relaxed, talented and funny photographer, get in touch with James! Thank you, Kath and James x

I鈥檓 so grateful and they made our special day even more special! Cannot recommend them enough

James and Hannah are absolutely amazing!!! They both came to my wedding this august- and were absolutely fantastic. Myself and my husband both felt like they were our friends for years!!! They were both professional yet fun to be around and really made a great atmosphere! Not to mention how great the content from them both is! Hannah sent us a folder the next day with hundreds of photos and videos in, which was amazing to sit and look back on the day after the wedding! I didn鈥檛 get wedding blues because I could sit and look at how amazing the day was! James is a very talented photographer and really caught the key moments and peoples emotions. The quality and detail of these photos is phenomenal. If you need one thing for your wedding- you 100% need this dynamic duo! I鈥檓 so grateful and they made our special day even more special! Cannot recommend them enough!!!!!

James's photos look so natural and Hannah's videos captured all those special moments

Hannah and James were at my daughter Nicola鈥檚 wedding 2 weeks ago and I have to say how amazing the footage and photos are. They captured perfectly the whole vibe of the day and you weren鈥檛 even aware it was happening. James's photos look so natural and Hannah's videos captured all those special moments. Cannot recommend them enough. Thank you both for everything you did.

They made us feel so comfortable and were perfect with our toddler

James and Hannah felt part of our family for the duration of their time photographing our wedding. They made us feel so comfortable and were perfect with our toddler. We couldn鈥檛 recommend them enough and have already done so to friends planning their weddings. I am so happy we decided to go with James and Hannah who offer both photography and content creation because the shots and videos they have provided will be looked back on for many years to come. All photos were sent to us so quickly, and Hannah鈥檚 content was send the same day! Thank you both so much xxxxx
