Full Description
I know, You've already written me off, because somewhere you read an article that said all photographers under £1000 in the UK are complete beginners who don't know their arse from their elbow, you shouldn't trust your big day in the hands of somebody who clearly doesn't know what they are doing. But then you stumbled upon me, You saw my images, you saw 'Wedding Photographer of the Year' amongst my accolades and now I know what you are thinking, You're asking why, Why is it that I am able to charge what I do, why would I even want to? You'll see a thousand wedding photographers advertising how much they love their job, how much they aren't in it for the money then when you ask them how much they charge they hit you with the 'good news'. That's not me. I don't do this for the money, I do it because I genuinely love what I do, I love capturing moments as they unfold and I love the memories that I capture. My couples love the way I am able to slot into their day, they love my sense of humour, my attitude, the fact that I wear a suit to a formal event to represent the people who have paid me (Don't ask me why that isn't standard in the Wedding Industry) They love how relaxed I am, how down to earth I am, how 'normal' I am, how I join them for their day without taking front and centre, They love my ability to get along with anybody, The fact that I never miss a deadline. I could go on, but the proof is in the pudding really - 73 weddings booked in 2022 when the industry average is 45. My business model works because not everybody wants to pay thousands of pounds for a wedding photographer and now that you've found me, you don't have to either.

James really captures the essence and the emotion of the event.
James was a friendly addition to our day! We had a great wedding shoot with him and then he took great pictures on our big day. Outstanding photography. James really captures the essence and emotion of the event. Would recommend anyone who’d rather pay for clearly a hard-working photographer! Thanks again.

On the big day James was amazing.
James did the photos for my wedding in October 2019. Meeting up with James beforehand for a meet and greet to get to know how he works and sort out things for the day, James was very professional and down to earth. Very relaxed and calm. On the big day James was amazing biggest thing I can say is I never knew he was there apart from the compulsory Bride and groom and usual shots, he was in the background and got some amazing photos.

FAQ
(9)

What is your most memorable wedding?

This is a loaded question because every wedding is unique in its own right!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Creative, Friendly, Relaxed, Happy, Natural

What about your business are you most proud of?

The fact that I am still here and able to offer my passion as a product for happy couples after a global pandemic is something that I am thankful for every day.

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

Get a credit card for peace of mind when booking everything!

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

Every wedding is unique in its own right, Every wedding has its own personal touches and it would be unfair of me to pick a favourite when so much effort went into creating so many amazing days.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

A couple express interest and I will forward them the details of what is included either via email, over the phone or face to face. If the couple then decide to book me I send an invoice for my work and my contract, once this is accepted then we will either have a conversation over the phone or a face to face meeting to discuss the finer details. Once this has been done there isnt really much else to do, if the couple want an engagement shoot we will meet for that, but other than that I will email every month or so to make sure they are okay and see how everything is getting on. about a month before the event the balance is due and we will either talk over the phone or meet face to face (or email if the couple prefer) to go through the finer details to make sure that the photography coverage runs smoothly on the day.

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

That depends on the couple really, everybody has different tastes and as photography is art it can be quite subjective, every person has differing tastes.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Umbrellas!

Describe how you got into photography.

I discovered my love for photography whilst I was serving in the Army, I had always worked in professional engineering and I was dissatisfied with it for a long time but resigned myself to the fact that most people don't enjoy their job, I discovered my love for photography and the more time went on the more I yearned to be a photographer, the first time I shot a wedding I knew exactly what I wanted to do, not even a global pandemic could keep me away from doing what I love.
