Elegant & Natural Wedding Photography
In a world that seems to have an never ending list of Wedding Photographers to choose from, choosing your Photographer is all about style, quality, persona and sometimes just clicking with a photographer on a personal level.
Hi, I’m James, an experienced Wedding Photographer, mainly working across venues in the Midlands, but I also travel throughout the UK.
I’m a strong believer in capturing a series of more formal / posed couple and family/group photographs, that will take pride of place in your wedding album or pride of place framed and mounted on the wall.
I like to think of my style as ‘adaptable, dynamic and candid’, adjusting myself and my photography to your requirements, whether discreetly capturing your stunning images in stealth mode, or taking charge mode to manage a lively group.
Perhaps the most important thing, other than the quality of my photography, is your relationship with me as a person.

Wedding Photography Process & FAQ
In any given month, I’ll have multiple weddings, often in the same week or on the same weekend, so it’s important to get your my services secured early for your Big Day. You can do this by selecting your package and paying a deposit. Most couples book early in their planning stage, approximately 6-18months before their Big Day, but I’ve also had last minute bookings and bookings 2years in advance with couple keen to secure my services.
This is a very exciting time for you and your partner, with so much to organise.
Come and enjoy a consultation session with me to discuss your wedding photography and the logistics of your Big Day, this can be in person or via video link if more convenient.
These relaxed sessions will give us the chance to get to know each other better and learn what you are looking for from your wedding photographer and products, and I will most certainly ask all about how you met each other.
I try to keep my Wedding Photographer pricing simple, with 5 main packages designed to cater for varying requirements and times. You can view my pricing here.
If you have something particular in mind please don’t hesitate to contact me to discuss your requirements as my Wedding photography packages can be amended to provide a bespoke package just for you as everybody is so different. This includes adding extra time or venues.
On the day, it is not uncommon to be requested to stay on for additional time on my hourly rate, which I will always try to accommodate as best as I can.
I understand that weddings can be (are) expensive, so I do try to keep my costs and product costs competitive whilst maintaining high-end products, even with a popularity and my slots often fully booked.
One of the challenges for couples is getting ‘bumped’, by photographers when higher value bookings come in on your booked date.
This is not a professional practice and you can rest assured, I will honour your booking and your date is secured, and further to that, unless due to serious illness or emergency it will always be myself attending.
Full payment is required 4 weeks prior to your Wedding day and is non-refundable.
A deposit is required to secure your booking date.
Many couples set up a standing order as a payment plan to spread the costs running up to 4 weeks prior, or pay in stages at their convenience.
Alternatively other couples prefer to settle the remaining balance of in one final payment.
My main method of receiving payment is via BACs – bank to bank transfer, however, I can accept PayPal and credit cards
If payments are not made in full on time, then your booking may be lost.
I’d be delighted to hear from you and learn more about your requirements.
If you’d like we can either chat over the phone, or we have a video conference with an easy to use Google Meet, or should you wish a face to face consultation.
