fun and professional
As a fellow supplier it is always nice to work alongside other professionals and Jim is definitely one. Whenever we work together we may have a bit of a laugh but the couples needs always come first and his pictures always look great. I would have no hesitation in recommending him to any of my couples

Dear Jim, Thank you so much for our wedding photos. We absolutely love them! My favourite is Neil and I looking at each other in the window of your friend the interior designer. That’s the mantlepiece one I reckon. Thanks again.

We can’t thank Jim enough for the pictures we received of our wedding. They were beautiful and captured not only the amazing day we remember but all the little details too. Jim was friendly, funny and many of our guests commented on how approachable and lovely he was. You were unbelievably patient with our little monster and we got so many images we will treasure for years to come. Not only was he great to work with but the package we received with our photos was a lovely touch. Thanks again Jim and we’d definitely recommend you. x

We met Jim at the weymouth pavilion wedding fair, there were lots of photographers present to choose from but as soon as I spotted the natural, artistic photographs in his albums he won my choice hands down! We had an engagement shoot at our wedding venue Kingston Maurward where it gave us both a chance to get to know each other and Jim was very interested to know exactly what we were looking for to make sure our photos were everything and more we wanted! The photos were beautiful, instantly we knew we had made the right choice! We had a very small wedding of just 18 people and most of the family weren’t keen to get there pictures taken, This I had warned Jim in advanced, what I loved about his photography was it wasn’t just him stood in front of a crowd of people it was pure talent. He had fantastic angles and captured every moment of our special day with people unaware of this happening so the pictures were completely natural and no one was put on the spot of feeling uncomfortable. Jim fitted in to our day extremely well, he has a great sense of humour and making people laugh and feel comfortable was only natural for him. We had all the pictures we dreamed of and more from romantic pictures of me and my husband, family at the event and every process of the day for us to remember for our lifetimes! Basically there was nothing he forgot! And I’ve had nothing but compliments to give about this man! He is worth every penny! We will be booking him for every event required in our future for sure ! Well done Jim

What is your most memorable wedding?

Actually it was a divorce! I know, how mad is that? But it was actually just lovely with two of the kindest and friendliest people I have ever met.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Considered, Different, Arty, Changing, Personal.

What about your business are you most proud of?

That people like what I do.

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

Your day, your way.

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

Every couple does it, and that is to stand up in front of family and friends and declare publicly that you love each other.

Describe your typical process with a couple.


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

I don't, I think every photographer should endeavour to give a range of images that collectively tell a story.

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

I can't tell you that!

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

A positive attitude.

Describe how you got into photography.

I got my first camera when I was 8 years old - an old box that took 120 film, and had to be sent away to be processed - and the magic that that box created still amazes me to this very day.
