He made us feel relaxed whilst giving us pointers
5* - Cannot recommend James highly enough. From our engagement shoot to our wedding day, he is unobtrusive, very talented and has a keen eye for the perfect photograph. He made us feel relaxed whilst giving us pointers and the quality we have received back is amazing. I have so many amazing pictures to chose from I'm going to have to do more than one album! He has captured my perfect day in the most perfect way. Thank you James.

James does not disappoint, he shot my Dad's wedding and he captured the day perfectly. His incredible eye for detail and creativity gives you unique images. His generous album delivered is stunning, I love the images!! Plus my toddler has embraced the terrible 2's he's never willing to participate in any photos, however James was brilliant with him and before long he was stealing the show 📷 James went Above and Beyond for us! Highly recommend!! Thanks for Everything James

We have booked James for our wedding photography next year. We have just had a pre shoot with him which was excellent. He gave brilliant advice about lighting, stances, and how to pose to get the best shots. He has already calmed the nerves of an anxious bride to be and was brilliant with also getting some photos of a very active and wriggling 10-month-old. We can't recommend him enough and can't wait to see the results on the big day itself.

Describe how you got into photography.

My love and interest in photography came about in my early teens dare I say in the days of film and polaroids.  Being as expensive as it was back then I didn't take nearly as many images as I wanted to.  Nowadays anyone with a smartphone has a camera and the age of digital means endless images. Into adulthood getting married and having a family I realised that I just had a handful of images of me growing up.  I was orphaned at an early age and I have no photos of me with my parents.  As with many parents today and the age of digital I took and still take lots of photos of my children and family.  In the back of my mind, I am thinking about how my children and their children will view the images in the future.  Something that I wasn't able to share with my children. I rekindled my teenage interest in photography and went back to college to learn digital photography. Since then I have never looked back and my passion for taking photos has grown and grown. My personal interest in sport led me to make portraits for junior sporting stars something I learned from not having images of me growing up and something to be valued in future years.  I had great success with sports photography and I had parents enquiring about family shots and portraits and then couples asking for me to photograph their wedding.  Fast forward a few years and many weddings later I am now a professional wedding photographer. My passion for making real and emotive images comes from within and from my personal life experiences.  My style of photography captures moments that will be cherished forever and become priceless.  With all that in mind, I want you to know that there is nothing more important to me than to take your pictures, tell your story and document your special day.
