Perfect - in every way. Look no further for your wedding photographer.
My husband and I would recommend Just Big Smiles to anyone. Just as others have said - from the moment Jim came round to meet us we knew we had made the best decision. Jim is amazing - warm, friendly, helpful, professional, knowledgeable and the kind of guy where it was a pleasure to have him at our wedding. He listened to what we wanted and absolutely nothing was too much. Communication was perfect from booking and beyond. On the day, Jim was punctual and put e wry one at ease. He is fantastic with kids and all the guests loved him. There are so many reasons to book Jim as your wedding photographer and at the end of it you get the most beautiful collection of photos. We also loved the added extras in our package such as the ‘thank you’ cards. We would recommend Just Big Smiles to anyone. Stella and Joe

The after care was as good as the day itself
After looking at many different Wedding Photographers Mark and I were really pleased with our final choice in James and Karl at Just Big Smiles. From the first time we met these guys we could tell they were going to help us capture our day in just the way we wanted. They met with us a couple of times in advance to talk through our requirements including a practice shoot in Abbey Gardens to ensure we knew exactly the right spots to capture the perfect memories and didn’t keep our friends and family hanging around too long on the big day. The after care was as good as the day itself, they came back to us quickly with an edited selection of shots and helped us create an album we will treasure as a momento of a great day. We would highly recommend Just Big Smiles, friendly, approachable and professional, thanks guys – you were ace!

dedicated to their research and preparation
If your looking for someone to capture your wedding day or any other special event, look no further, right from the initial meeting with just big smiles we knew they were the photographers for us. We chose their platinum package which included our engagement photoshoot, the wedding day, and a photo album. What really surprised us was just how dedicated to their research and preparation they were; from several meetings with us, venue visits, scouting out different areas around our wedding venue for great photo opportunities and personal requirements. They couldn’t have made our time with them any more at ease, fun, yet professional and unique all in one, ensuring nothing was too much trouble and taking an anything is possible approach to our day. When we sat down to review our photos, we couldn’t have been happier. They captured the day perfectly; the lighting and angles were exceptional and the finish was spectacular. Both myself and my husband wouldn’t want anyone but just big smiles to capture our special moments from this point on, they are the photographers for us. We cannot wait to work with you again and we will always recommend your services Xx

He has a warm personality
Jim was the Photographer at our wedding on May 4th 2018. He was absolutely brilliant and produced some fantastic photos of our wonderful day. He’s a very knowledgeable photographer that captures every aspect of your special day. He has a warm personality and made all our guests feel comfortable. We 100% recommend Just Big Smiles for your photography needs. Thanks again Jim.

nothing is too much trouble
If you are looking for a wedding or event photographer, we highly recommend using Just Big Smiles. We got married on a dark winter’s afternoon/evening, and did not initially intend to have a photographer, as we felt it would be too difficult to capture the occasion in such challenging conditions. Fortunately, we were proved wrong! Jim and Carl from JBS captured some of the most incredibly creative, atmospheric and natural photo’s you could imagine. We were overwhelmed with the photos we received, and also very impressed with how quickly they were edited and shared with us. It wasn’t just about the pictures, however. Jim and Carl’s warm, friendly, ‘nothing is too much trouble’ approach is what really made it for us. Their passion for the job and incredible attention to detail really shone through. We were able to meet with Jim beforehand to discuss exactly what we wanted, and he even took the time to visit and familiarise himself with the venue before the day. On the day, Jim was at the venue first thing in the morning, capturing as much of the build-up as he could. During the reception, they provided sparklers for guests for some creative shots outside. They also asked guests to write messages for us on chalkboards – something we didn’t even know had happened until the photos came through! These little touches mean we have a wonderful variety of photos we can treasure for evermore. If you book JBS, you’ll have no regrets.

Jim is now an awesome duo with Karl alongside him
Jim was our wedding photographer on Oct 7th 2017 and the pictures are amazing!! He even won an award for one of them. He is extremely professional wanting to make sure he is clued up on the pictures of people you absolutely don’t want to miss and will discuss this prior to the event. We would highly recommend him and only sorry we didn’t take him up on the offer of the engagement photo shoot also. I’ve since been to another event that Just Big Smiles took the photographs at and Jim is now an awesome duo with Karl alongside him to take double the fun shots. Thanks again JBS x
