I believe I have an amazing relationship with all of my couples, I like to treat everyone as a best friend and I like to think this is shown throughout my work.
Firstly, and perhaps most importantly I would like to start this review by saying that I would absolutely 100% recommend James as a photographer for any wedding! The photos that we received from James (well over 700) were absolutely beautiful and we were over the moon with them. His natural, reportage style suited us and the kind of wedding that we wanted perfectly. Although I must say that he also excelled at the more ‘posed’ group photos as well. James captured every moment of the day seamlessly, and a lot of the time we weren’t even aware that he was there taking photos. James made us both feel very at ease on the day, he used his expertise to make suggestions on where and when would work for our photos. He even came and grabbed us later in the day when the sun was going down to suggest that we went outside for 10 minutes to take a few – the results are absolutely stunning. He had clearly scoped out the local area in advance and thought about what would look good. But James was not overbearing in any way and he was clearly very conscious of letting us enjoy our day, as well getting some amazing shots – the perfect balance. From the moment he arrived, James was helpful (even doing extra-curricular activities such as taking stickers off shoes!), friendly and professional. A number of our guests commented on how friendly James was. He chatted to many of our guests making them feel at ease and I really believe that this shows in the shots (a family member even booked him for her own wedding on the day!). James stayed well in to the evening of our wedding and when we surprised him with a fire engine outside; he rose to the challenge and got some really creative shots in. Prior to the wedding, James kept in contact, he confirmed what he would need from us well in advance. His positive comments via email and social media showed his enthusiasm for the wedding and made us feel even more excited too! A couple of days after the wedding, James shared a few ‘sneak preview’ shots with us, which was really useful as it gave us some pictures to show people. A week or so later he also created an amazing sideshow to our first dance song, which we watched whilst we were on honeymoon and could also share with others. That was really special. We are so pleased with James on the day, and then the final photos that we received really exceeded expectations. There were so many beautiful shots to choose from (I’m still not sure how we will!). James is clearly very passionate about his work and puts his all into each wedding. This completely comes across in the final photos and I can honestly say that it was a complete pleasure having James share our wedding day with us. I feel sad for anyone that doesn’t use James as their wedding photographer! We can’t thank you enough James.

When we were researching photographers for our wedding we came across James, and after looking through his photos we were really impressed with his style and were over the moon to find out he was available on our date. We booked him straight away and from the first contact, he was quick at replying and always friendly and professional. We met up with him for a drink so we could break the ice, go over some questions we had and run some ideas we had past time. We were chatting for hours about the wedding and also ended up sharing travelling stories. A month or so before our big day we had our pre-wedding shoot. Sabrina and I weren’t sure what to expect from the day and were worried that it would be too cheesy but it was actually really good fun and got some amazing photos from the day we will treasure. On our wedding day James turned up early and throughout the day and night James was smiling and made sure he was there capturing every special moment without getting his camera in the way of the moments. So many of our guests commented on how lovely James was and how it felt like he was part of the family rather than a stranger we had hired because he was so friendly and made an effort with everyone. James directed everyone politely and efficiently during the formal photographs and made such an effort all day to make sure everything was done as we asked. We were able to offer James a room in our venue for the night so after he had finished taking photos all night he accepted our invitation to join us for a few drinks where we got to enjoy his company before we all called it a night. The photos were sent to us much faster than we expected and we were blown away by the number of photos James had taken! We absolutely were overjoyed by the quality of the photos and by all the memories he managed to capture! I am so happy that we chose James as our photographer. The photos were beyond amazing and I’m honoured to say that we’ve made a friend in James and have met up with him since. James is an absolute professional who clearly takes great pride in his work and I will recommend him as a photographer to anyone who needs one. Thanks so so much James mate we will forever be so glad we chose you.

We had a small wedding with 40 of our closest family and friends in the beautiful setting of Three Choirs Vineyard. The weather was beautiful and we were able to have our dream to get married outside which is one of the reasons we chose the venue.
