Full Description
Each wedding calls for something different and each couple has their own expectations. I aim to exceed those expectations with every wedding I do so that I stay fresh, creative and challenged and my clients get the best product I can offer. I am a Wiltshire wedding photographer but I travel the whole of the UK and occasionally abroad. I work quickly and without fuss to make sure that while your photographs get all the attention they need I am never the focus of the day. I offer a personalised online gallery for every booking from which you can download, back up, print and share your high resolution images. I also offer custom wedding albums designed in consultation with you and printed by Graphistudio in Italy.

Personal Message from the Manager

Name of Wedding Contact: Greg
After fifteen years of successful wedding photography I'm introducing a more affordable and bespoke modular pricing structure for 2020 and beyond. You can now build your own photography package. £100 per hour with a minimum spend of £300 for ceremony coverage. It gives you the freedom to book only what you need. With well over 500 weddings under my belt I have a pretty good sense of realistic wedding timings so if you need help working out timings, I'm more than happy to work with you.

Professional, discrete, great sense of humour
Greg did a stunning job with our wedding. Professional, discrete, great sense of humour and, most importantly, took some truly wonderful photographs!

You will not be disappointed at with what Greg pro
We first came across Greg when my daughter and her husband used him to do their engagement shoot photos, wedding photos and wedding video in December 2013 - from the start he was amazing, made you feel so comfortable - so much so that sometimes you forgot he was actually there!! The results speak for themselves and we are so pleased with everything that we chose him to do my son's wedding in November 2014. I have one daughter left to get married after that and Greg will definitely be the choice of photographer for her too. You will not be disappointed at with what Greg produces.

Truly exceeded our expectations
From the start Greg was really helpful and considerate of our needs; fitting in with our time constraints and corresponding quickly. He was able to talk us through practical elements we might not have thought of in the run up to the big day. On the wedding day itself, he was extremely professional, blending in without drawing attention away from events. Greg was creative with his shots, capturing personality, emotions and little details beautifully. Following our wedding, Greg’s photos were sent to us swiftly and we were delighted with the outcome. He then presented an initial draft of our album, and was helpful and patient with us as we took our time in reaching the final version. We were excited about seeing our printed album, and when it came it truly exceeded our expectations. The quality of the materials used and the outstanding photography have been combined to create an amazing reminder of our special day. We are so pleased that Greg was our photographer, and would highly recommend his service.

Attention to detail and professionalism
Anybody is looking for a wedding photographer then look no further! Greg’s work is absolutely amazing and we couldn’t be happier with all our photos. The family and friends we’ve shown so far are also so impressed and think his work is fantastic. We felt so relaxed around Greg on the day and we also had a good laugh! His attention to detail and professionalism is first class and this shows in his photos. We can’t stop looking at them – Thank you so much again, we highly recommend you.

Could not be more helpful, nothing seems too much
Having seen Greg’s photographs from a friends wedding I knew as soon as I started planning mine exactly who I wanted as my photographer. From the word go Greg was easy to communicate with, he was easy going and friendly. He really understood where I was coming from in terms of the style I wanted. On the actual day he was polite, unobtrusive, organised and creative. Exactly what you need on your big day!! Since then he could not be more helpful, nothing seems too much. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking for a creative and lovely professional photographer.

most amazing photographer I have worked with
Greg James is the most amazing photographer I have worked with as an Event Planner, and he was the best choice I could have made to have someone capture my own wedding. Whilst in the planning stages he was professional and organised, working with me and my now-husband as well as our venue beforehand to make sure everything was going to plan. On the day itself Greg was amiable and funny, even managing to coax a smile from my grandmother who had been worrying all morning about the wedding cake! The photographs are stunning and artistic, whilst capturing some of the more intimate moments of our day. It has been a great pleasure to see his work in the past, and now I have my own wonderful pictures to remember my wedding day!

FAQ

What is your most memorable wedding?

Everyone is different. I don't think I'd specify an exact image but I like to take the couple out for 5 minutes as the sun is going down. It's beautiful light, we get some great shots and the couple always appreciate 5 minutes of time to themselves at that in the evening.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

I am a musician and I love music and music in film. That led me to combining music with imagery which led me to start my own video production company. While video tells a story in many images, I was intrigued by telling a story in one image and so I got into photography with the express aim of creating a cinematic style that is enhanced by natural light or natural looking artificial light to create singular images that stand out.

What about your business are you most proud of?

Dramatic, cinematic, aspirational, observational and unobtrusive

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

The bride's father had died earlier in the year. At a family function a few years earlier her father had been filmed singing a song to his wife wearing a yellow rose. Yellow and yellow roses were used in the details throughout the day and the couple danced their first dance to a big screen projection of that video of her father singing. Gives me chills even now.

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

My first. The couple knew it was my first. They were welcoming, patient and accommodating and the resulting images were beautiful. The day was just perfect from start to finish, weather and all.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

That I enjoy exceeding the expectations of my clients

What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?

The groom and his boys were all firemen and before I knew it, they were all up in a tree asking for a photograph. Firemen in a tree. That's the one.

What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?

Embrace it. Never try and hide it. Get some colour coordinated umbrellas, some classy wellies and act like nothing is out of the ordinary. A good photographer will make the best out of any situation and rain is no different. For group shots, make sure there is a space indoors and that your photographer is prepared for low light group formals.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

On the day I'm at your disposal. We would have discussed the day in detail beforehand and decided on the best approach for the photos and it's my job to make that all happen with the minimum of disruption. That said, nothing is set in stone and I'm flexible when I need to be to accommodate unforeseen issues or the couple simply changing their minds.

Describe how you got into photography.

Be realistic about your timings so that you don't have to stress on the day
