Do you travel?
Yes, I do. I cover the whole South West of England and throughout the UK too. I have photographed weddings in Berkshire and London and would love to photograph a wedding abroad.
Do you offer Engagement/Pre-Wedding Shoots?
Yes, in fact I highly recommend you book an engagement shoot or pre-wedding shoot, mainly to meet me in person and get a feel for what I will be like on your wedding day. It is also a great way to get some amazing photos of you and your partner at an amazing part of your journey as a couple.
What is your style of photography?
Great question! I love shooting natural photographs and blend in with the environment. I often get comments from couples on how they barely notice I am at the wedding, but get such amazing natural photographs of the guests and of the couple themselves. I love to shoot candid and in a photojournalistic way. Obviously there will be times I get you to pose and away from the party, but who doesn't love those couple photos?
When do we get to see our photos?
Imagine you've just woken up the morning after your wedding, all you can think about is what happened the day before. Then (if it hasn't happened already), you see an email/WhatsApp from me with ~dozen photos of your wedding day!!! I like to call these 'HERO Shots' and a great thing to have so soon after your big day. Now, obviously depending on your wedding venue location to my house, there are only so many hours I can Sellotape my eyes open for, so you may get some shots later on in the day. In terms of the full album, this will happen between 4-8 weeks. I deliver all your photos on an online gallery. This way you can share these with your friends and family. I will also deliver to your address, a personalised USB box with again ~dozen free prints. An example USB box can be found on my Instagram (@justjamesweddings).
We are not confident in front of camera, what is your advice?
I get this all the time and honestly I hope my personality will help you feel relaxed and enjoy the whole process. As already mentioned, if you feel like you need help in front of camera, an engagement or pre-wedding shoot can help massively and many a couple have come away from this experience so happy. T Also, the best thing about my booking process is that I try to find things out about you and I try to do the same thing back, so that there is a relationship already built there before your big day. I do not force anything, try to get you to relax and have ways of making sure your bridal party help with this too.
I highly recommend James for your wedding photography needs! Our pictures far exceeded our expectations and James makes you feel very comfortable in front of the camera. He captures all the special moments throughout the day and does so in a very professional manner. We couldn't have asked for anyone better to be there on our day capturing our wedding!
We cannot recommend James enough. He managed to perfectly capture the essence of our wedding without feeling like you were being followed by a camera. He was so relaxed and put us at ease. We absolutely love our photos!
WOW! What can we say about James…. He went above and beyond to capture our day more perfectly than we could have ever imagined. He fitted in seamlessly, and a lot of the time we didn’t even know he was there. His eye for detail is absolutely incredible and just from the ‘hero shots’ he has sent us so far we can see how talented he is. As soon as we woke up from our big day they were already sat waiting in our inbox for us to look through… which was such a great touch! James is extremely friendly and all our guests complimented his lovely and warm manner. His passion for photography is clear and I would absolutely encourage you to book him as your photographer.
Wow! James went above and beyond for our wedding! Even endured a trek down the side of a cliff just to make sure we got the best photos possible! Woke up the morning after the wedding to stunning hero shots! 4 weeks later and the pictures are back already with the most gorgeous personalised box and prints! James felt more like a guest with how quickly he connected with everyone and how comfortable he made us all feel! Now we can remember the day with the most beautiful pictures and cannot thank James enough!
James was the most amazing photographer at our wedding. In the days leading up he messaged us a few times to reassure us about the weather as there was a named storm due on the day. He showed us amazing photos he had taken of other couples in the rain. He was calm throughout the day but managed to get the guests in place to take photos at the right time to avoid the rain. The photos are beautiful and he really listened to what we asked for. I would highly recommend him.
