He seamlessly develops his own stylistic take on artistic reportage photography, skilfully engineered with his unobtrusive approach, combined together with a judicious smattering of casual and relaxed posed images.

With his standard package priced at £1000, this photographer offers fantastic value for money, especially considering the superior quality of his images and the full-day attendance he provides. Generally exhibiting a somewhat refreshing attitude towards wedding photography, you can be assured of a fantastic experience with James also!

About

James found his passion for imagery kindled at the very young age of 5, after coming across his father's collection of photography books. After many years of avidly poring over the portfolios of the likes of Arno Minkkinen and Jacques Lartigue, and regularly subscribing to LIFE magazine, he realised it is a photographer's ability to tell a story - escape to the world portrayed within the frame - that is the true beauty of the art form.

After school, James left photography behind temporarily to become an illustrator and painter. But after a career increasingly progressing into the corporate rather than the artistic world, James changed direction and decided to follow his childhood passion.

Today James relives the same realisation he had during his youth - that photography is about truth and story. He therefore eschews gimmicky, fancy digital effects, creating some of the most timeless and most effective wedding photography we've ever seen.

The Photos

James spends most of the wedding day being as unobtrusive as possible, requiring the bride and groom's attention only for 30 minutes or so for personal posed shots.

In a satisfying balance, James conjures up a judicious mixture of documentary-style black and white and colour photographs, with a few posed stills for good measure.

Having experienced overbearing photographers himself, his approach towards group shots is that he prefers an usher or another family member to organise groups of up to eight for pictures together, as the process of corralling greater numbers for larger compositions means the whole experience of the wedding can be interrupted for all!

The Style

Exciting; daring; artistic; witty - just a few of the words that might be used to describe James' fantastic images. His lifelong passion for photography shows, and a knack of porting you back to your wedding with each photo makes his imagery a true art form.

Every shot is clear, punchy, dramatic and emotionally poignant - whether funny or sad.

It is his fantastic 'framing', use of lighting and environmental features, combined with brilliant post-wedding editing skills, that make him such a sought-after photographer.
