About Suddenly Still Photography

hired 9 times on Thumbtack

I offer portrait photography, commercial photography, and event coverage; if it needs to be photographed, you need not look any further!

When it comes to portraits, I always look for that 'true-you' moment that only an oil painting can come close to. I do my best to create a comfortable atmosphere while shooting for the best results possible. On location or in my studio, results are guaranteed!

Prints are available, from mini-wallet to poster sizes. I can print up to 13"x44" in-house and work with two of the best labs in the country for the rest.

I also make my own custom frames and have become known for my custom collages. Prints from your session can be 'custom-sized' to create a unique look for your wall art.

    James was very calm and did his best to make us look as if we were not posing. He took our wedding pictures in Vermont and we are very happy with the photos he took. Color and black and white, very nice. Highly recommend.

    James did an excellent job photographing our wedding. He took his time editing and making them the best they could be. He even made a beautiful slide presentation of all the photos to our first dance song. He had the best price around too! He is professional and also friendly. I strongly suggest hiring him for any event, he took beautiful action photos as well as the basic family photos. He would be the perfect photographer for everything!

    Working with him is very easy. He got us in very quickly and was very easy to work with. I love how my pictures turned out and will go back again.

    James is very flexible and patient when it comes to photographing children. When he was photographing my son he didn't give me a time limit on his shoot as children can be unpredictable with temperaments and he wants to get the best shots. Shortly after our photo shot with him, we had another experience with him at school and he did a great job with all the children. His prices are reasonable and he is very easy to talk to about what you want and everything is done in a timely manner. I would definitely go to him again!!!!!!!!!!!

    He was wonderful, creative and patient with my two nieces. He was very thorough and then I hard such a hard time choosing which portraits I wanted...for I wanted them all. He also made custom frames for my selections and I will never go anywhere else for photo shoots! Very reasonable prices.

    James Mertz is a pleasure to work with, he is very reliable and confident, he takes his time and knows what he is doing. I would recommend many to chose him. James is worth every penny and you know that you're pictures/portraits will look amazing!

  • 5/5 stars

    James is very patient with children. He does a great jibe capturing each persons personality in a picture. We have used James for a family portraits, individual portraits, school pictures, special occasions and a first year package. We live his frames and collages as well. His props and backgrounds, as well as his great ideas for the best shots are what we enjoy the most.

Question and answer

Q. How did you get started doing this type of work?

A. I have always loved photography, my father introduced me to the Polaroid "Flip-Flash" at a very young age, and that's all it took! I finally made my passion official in January of 2012, and business has been great! Each new subject brings excitement to the table, and keeps the creative juices flowing.

Q. What types of customers have you worked with?

A. Portrait photography is one of my natural talents, I'll capture the 'true-you' for you to share and cherish with your family and friends for generations to come.

Q. What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?

A. Make sure you and your photographer are a good fit by asking for referrals, and viewing work he/she has done that is related to your current needs. Ask for a portfolio or a link to an online publishing venue.
