Wedding and Event Photography

We're very glad that we chose James as our wedding photographer! We initially didn't think we'd be able to afford a photographer, but we found the money about a month before the wedding. Luckily, James was available, even with relatively short notice. He was very professional, friendly, and flexible with our changing plans. He even brought the equipment to take professional family portraits at the church (and had everything put away well before the ceremony started). He was also proactive about wearing a mask (before the mandate), which we appreciated. During the events, he was a fly on the wall, and we hardly noticed that he was there. A month later, we received our pictures as promised, and they're beautiful. We're so grateful that James did such a wonderful job--and at a great price for quality wedding photography!

Working with James was a complete joy! He captured our wedding day perfectly. From start to finish, he was professional, fun, and always on top of everything. He has a great eye for photography and what will makes pictures pop. I would recommend him to anyone.

James was absolutely a pleasure to work with. He was super fast to respond, was available quickly, and had a fast turn-around. Our pics turned out so great! Thank so much for your hard work and passion for photography.

Engagement Photography

James did a wonderful job, the pictures turned out lovely and he was very flexible and understanding. We ended up with very cold, windy weather on the day of the shoot and he suggested we shoot for the half the time, and that he would only charge half the price of his original quote. This worked out great and he got the photos to us promptly! Would definitely recommend :)

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Because this isn't my full time job, I'm not trying to make money off of you. My goal is to be creative and just make a little cash on the side.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    First off, we'll pick a good time to have a phone conversation, or a face-to-face meeting. There we'll work out all of the details together, and come up with a plan. I guarantee a 30 day turnaround on your photos, which will be digitally delivered.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have a broadcast production degree along with years of work experience that has lead me to this line of work. I love to create images that trigger emotions and send a message.
