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.

Stunning and everything we could have hoped for.
We have just received our wedding photos and WOW they are absolutely stunning and are everything we could have hoped for and more. Greg was absolutely wonderful on the day and nothing was too much trouble for him. He had a great sense of humour and put everyone at ease. We would recommend him to anyone wanting a wedding photographer.

He always put what we wanted first
Greg was our photographer and videographer for our wedding in April, I honestly couldn't recommend him more. We all felt so at ease and he always put was we wanted first . He was so friendly and also a great sense of humour . We've had our photographs back and the album is more than we could of hoped for , he really does capture the day as you remember it. We have had a sneak preview of our wedding film and it is stunning already, he really is talented and if you want to look back on your day and get the same feeling you did on the day this is the perfect way to do so. We are over the moon and couldn't thank him enough

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!

None short of outstanding
Greg was utterly professional, very calm and friendly. The photos that he produced are none short of outstanding, perfectly capturing the events and emotion of the day. Choose Greg as your wedding photographer and you really won’t be disappointed.

FAQ

What is your most memorable 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 style in 5 adjectives.

Dramatic, cinematic, aspirational, observational and unobtrusive

What about your business are you most proud of?

That I enjoy exceeding the expectations of my clients

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

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

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

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.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

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.

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

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.

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

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 do you recommend for a rainy day 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.

Describe how you got into photography.

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.
