Testimonials

I really do love my job.
Evey wedding is different but they are all wonderful to me,
and when I hear back from people about how much they liked their photos,
it makes all the hard work so much more worthwhile.

Here are some of the kind words I have been fortunate to recieve.

Shelly & Matt

"James came to our attention via a friends recommendation. These friends (luckily) were also getting married so we also got to see James at work. He is friendly, professional and while a big reason we picked him was because of his skill at reportage style photography, his ability to execute more formal group shots is no small matter either. The pictures from throughout the day show an aptitude at capturing great moments as well.

The method of delivery for the pictures was a nice touch as well. Both I and my Wife are made up with the work James did for us an thanks to him we have some great pictures to mark what was a very special day for us.

Once again, thank you for the great work!"

Angela & Michael

"Thank you ever so much for the photographs. They are lovely. You've captured the narrative of the day beautifully. This was exactly what Michael and I were hoping for. Something that I'll be able to cherish forever.
Thank you James."

Angela Druiett

"I just wanted to say a huge thank you,the pictures are just wonderful,you've captured everything we had hoped for and more! I'm working up in Glasgow and feeling just a little homesick and it's been a wonderful tonic to look at them today... An added bonus is there's something for everyone and you've captured each part of the family and the setting so well,we are absolutely thrilled.
Thank you so much James "

Joelle & Peter

"James was simply fantastic! We really couldn't have asked for nor found a better wedding photographer and we feel so lucky and privileged to have been able to use him. His manner was excellent; he was subtle when it was required during the service and when taking candid shots of the day yet he had the tireless ability and energy required to get everyone where they needed to be for the big group photos.
We got the photos back from him remarkably quickly and are overjoyed with the results.
We'd like to mention just how generous and reasonable the cost was to hire James. He simply charged a flat fee with no hidden extras for "additional hours" and what really touched us was that without us asking he stayed right until we left so that he could photos of our exit amongst sparklers!
Quite simply put, James was perfect. Thank you so much."

Joelle & Peter

Laura & Phil

"We are completely in love with all our wedding photographs, James captured our whole day beautifully from early morning preparations to sparklers on the jetty at midnight! He worked so hard throughout the day.
We chose James as our photographer not just because he is a good friend but because he made us feel at ease in front of the camera and is a very talented chap! We have so many special photos to chose from, it's going to make putting our album together very difficult! Thank you James for all your hard work and for producing such wonderful photos of our most special day.
We highly recommend James to anyone looking for a great wedding photographer!"

Gina & Phil

"Thank you SO SO much for all your hard work on our wedding day. We truly had the best day of our lives and we are so honoured you were there to capture it. We were so impressed with your photos. They are absolutely beautiful and we will treasure them for years to come. The presentation box was a lovely touch and so professional. What a wonderful little memento to store the photos in.

After the wedding, people spoke to us about how friendly and professional you were. One person was telling us of how during the evening they were talking to you about your work and so on an you were chatting away to them really relaxed and then you spotted a photo opportunity, quickly nipped away to grab the shot then came back to the conversation. They really appreciated being able to talk to a photographer who was happy to sit and chat whilst also working.

I remember sitting at the head table and I think it was during the speeches I looked over towards the doors and you were stood there with your arms across your chest, looking up slightly and smiling, like you were taking in the words and for that moment you were both our guest and our photographer.

It was tricky to find a photo of you from the day as you were such a ninja. You were here and then suddenly there, silently moving through people without disturbing them so they didn't notice you were there.

One of our favourite moments from the day with you was when we went into the corn field and you took the brilliant golden hour shots. You were so proud of them (quite rightly so) you came bounding up to us to show us one and instantly blew us away. Thank you for getting down on the ground and muddy for those fab shots. That's true dedication!

We really enjoyed our individual session, chatting away and laughing about all sorts of things, climbing styles, doing off road and throwing the leaves and much more.

Having the engagement shoot with you prior to the day gave us such confidence that we felt so relaxed on the day creating a great dynamic between us.

We look forward to working with you again. Hopefully if any of our friend get married we can highly recommend you.

We would like to thank you once again for all your hard work during the day. We had so many fantastic and fun moments with you and will always look back and smile"

Sarah and Chris

"Just wanted to say thank you so much for being an amazing photographer at our wedding yesterday. From the minute you arrived you made everyone feel comfortable and relaxed. You managed the group shots very well and had the inspiration needed for our time at the botanical gardens. You climbing into the bushes really was the highlight! We cannot wait to see the final results!
Once again, thank you so very much."

"We got the USB stick fine, awesome design by the way! And we LOVE the photos, SO pleased with them you did such a great job we couldn't be happier.
Thanks again for being a great photographer, we will certainly recommend you to anybody in need of a photographer in the future.
Many thanks"

"James puts everyone at ease and manages to capture all the little details that you'd want. He's got a really calm relaxed manner and takes the time to get to know what you want.
He managed to get so many great photographs of everyone, including me where I normally am the one making silly faces or have my eyes closed in pictures. Lovely guy and beautiful beautiful photographs. The hard part is choosing which ones to frame out of so many amazing shots!
Thank you so much.x"

Emma and Ian

"Thank you so much for the fabulous photos - they really capture the happiness of our wedding day! You were brilliant on the day itself, you kept everyone relaxed and just blended in - I'm normally really self conscious being photographed but you put me perfectly at ease. The resulting natural shots are just what we wanted and we love the pictures from the Birdcage at the end of the night too. You really went above and beyond staying so late and setting up outdoor shots in the cold at after 11pm - we really appreciate it and couldn't be happier.

Thanks again!"

Kate Nightingale


Emma and Ian

"There was much excitment when the pics went online - I think mum has told everyone and my aunties and uncles have already been having a look!!
They are lovely photos - we are pleased to bits! Thank you
We will send a proper thank you - but just wanted you to know we are really happy"

...

"Just wanted to say thanks again for the lovely photos - I've been having lots of fun posting different ones to friends and popping some on Facebook.
You are very talented, so many people have told us they didn't know you were taking their photographs, which means we have the relaxed photos that are so much fun to look at.
We really love some of the people wondering around the farm!
I keep flicking through them again and again. Thank you."

Amanda and Tom

"The DVDs with our wedding photos have arrived safely in the post (very nice packaging too!).

We want a say a HUGE thank you to you and Marie for giving us so many wonderful photos with which we can look back on our wedding day. We're really blown away by just how many photos we have here - and of course by the quality of them all. It's genuinely far more than we were hoping to get, and each one is brilliant. You've captured a wonderful range with the expected group poses, shots of our family and friends enjoying themselves, and the background details that we wouldn't want to forget. Also, it was a stroke of genius to work in the tractor for the posed shots of the two of us - we'll definitely be getting a big print done of one of those!

We were really struck by the friendly and professional way that you and Marie handled everything on the day. We felt like we were in safe hands as you wrangled the guests for the group shots, and were very impressed with how quickly you got these done, leaving more time for our guests and us to relax. You also did an excellent job of blending into the background to capture so many natural photos of people just enjoying themselves, unaware that they had a camera on them.

We love how you have arranged the set of photos in the gallery. It was a lot of fun to be able to see what had been going on at each household at different times during the preparations in the morning.

We couldn't have asked for a better set of photos, or a better pair of people to be there to take them!"

Manda and Tom


Lorna and Tom

"Thank you so much for the brilliant photographs James. We cannot tell you how pleased we were with the whole experience. The initial meeting was perfect and you really put as at ease. On the day, you were just lovely to have around and we never felt that 'being photographed' dominated the day - it just added to it. And for the most important part - the photographs were perfect. A great mix of formal and natural shots. It was great to look back at our day and remember what a good time we all had. These are definitely memories we will treasure for ever. Can't wait to see the albums."

Lorna and Tom (Mr and Mrs Berrow)

Jane and Kerry

"Thank you so much James for photographing our wedding on the 2nd August. We are delighted with the results and will treasure our photos and the beautiful record that you have created forever. You were great at listening to what we wanted and were so calm and complementary on the day. You put everybody at ease and so many of the guests that I spoke to after the wedding commented specifically on how great you were. What a wonderful choice we made choosing you as our photographer! x"

We absolutely love the pics! You have captured everything perfectly - the venue and the people! Love seeing all the details like the champagne bottles in the sink and the details of Arnie's amazing Liberty bow-tie! Also, thanks for your quick turn-around!"

Natasha Jochman


Craig and Russ

"We've just gone through our photos you did for our Civil Partnership :) they are fantastic, you've captured the day so well and there are so many great shots and you've managed to catch the humour and relaxed atmosphere and people's natural reactions.
You were fantastic (and so was Marie, so please pass on our thanks to her).
Lots of people have also fed back how friendly, approachable, unobtrusive and professional you were allowing people to relax and be themselves without worrying about having to pose for photos throughout the day.
Thanks very much again"

Craig Herbert

"We couldn't have asked for a better experience for our first photoshoot.
James is incredibly experienced, passionate, and professional in his work and it really shows in the quality of the photos that he takes.
Needless to say we were very happy with the outcome of our shoot, and, in the short time since the photos were taken, they have been proudly featured in the newspaper and magazine articles.
He even managed to make our sorry selves look attractive!"
