Neale James' passionate desire to create genuine and natural images of your wedding day is evident in the honest pictures he is able to capture. Specialising in documentary wedding photography, Neale will take images that are subtle and beautiful at the same time.

For Neale, it is important that he is not obtrusive in his photography - far from it. He would rather stand aside and observe the proceedings while capturing unique expressions and moments exchanged between the happy couple and their guests.

About

Working in Berkshire and London, Neale James has twice been recognised for Junebug's exclusive list of the Best Wedding Photographs in the World and in 2014 he was voted the Wedding Photographer of the Year for London.

Originally a radio broadcaster, Neale discovered his passion for photography over a decade ago and has since captured over 800 weddings. He takes pride in being as unobtrusive in his approach as he can be while capturing the most genuine moments of your wedding.

Neale also creates unique wedding photofilms, a highly emotive combination of audio with pictures. These could be sound audios from the speeches and the readings, where you can relive not only the pictures of your day but also the words.

The Photos

One of the most important things for Neale is that he captures the most candid moments of your wedding but without staging the photos or telling people when to pose or where to stand. He believes that the formalities of group shots should only be a small part of your celebrations.

Priding himself on discretion, he will observe your wedding and attempt to see the experience as the bride and groom would, thus re-creating your special day in images that you can cherish forever.

Neale has a sixth sense in understanding when is the perfect time to take a photo. He will create a package that suits you and will provide an online gallery of your images so that friends and family can also order them from his website.

The photos are simply beautiful and honest. They are also cleverly edited, showcasing his talents and emphasising the emotion. Neale himself calls them 'informal formals', as an example of photojournalism and documentary style photography.

Each wedding Neale approaches with a bespoke and personalised attitude, but as a guide he charges around £1,650 for a full day of photography.

Extras

Due to his level of expertise, Neale has started becoming a teacher of wedding photography. He runs half day and full day courses for those who want to learn his craft and how to produce his wedding photofilms using Adobe Premiere.

This is great for those who are already established within the wedding photography business or who are just starting out.

Neale James also does stunning portrait commissions in a similar documentary style. You could organise this to be a engagement style shoot, or one of your family.

Reviews

  • Overjoyed newlyweds

    We couldn't have asked for a better photographer. Neale was amazing in both the run up to the day and the day itself. He caught magical moments and fantastic facial expressions in his photos. We've had such amazing feedback on the photos from all of our family and friends. I can't wait to have another event so that I can ask him to photograph some more precious times!

  • Thankful bride

    Neale arrived and the very first thing he did was set my mind to rest and assure me the rain did not matter. I am so pleased to say that it didn't - I can't stop looking at our photos in awe and admiration at what a beautiful job he and Alex did. I had so many requests at what shots I wanted and where, and not only did he cover all my demands - he went above and beyond what I expected.
    He was really great fun, everyone commented at how lovely the photographers were and to see the natural, candid shots full of emotion and laughter just makes us want to go back and do it all again!
    Forever grateful. Thank you both!

  • Grateful bride

    My husband and I cannot recommend Neale highly enough. He was fantastic from the moment we met him. We were keen to avoid an abundance of posed shots and Neale's style fitted with this perfectly. The shots he captured were natural and caught the emotion and candid moments of the day. He even rescued my parents during a button hole dilemma and helped ensure my veil was secured correctly. In addition to our beautiful photos and album we treated ourselves to one of his photofilms - an element I would strongly encourage other couples to consider - it was the icing on the cake! Neale is a true professional, who knows his craft and creates an amazing end product.
