"Words simply are not enough. James was able to capture not just our wedding day, but the emotion, the love that surrounded us, the laughter and all that which was beautiful. His unobtrusive, photojournalistic approach allowed us to fully enjoy our day while capturing our story. I searched for months, through dozens of photographers and websites. As soon as I saw James's work I knew. We talked on the phone a few times, as he's three hours from me, and met him for the first time on my wedding day. I could not have asked for anything more in a photographer. He has the ability to capture this thing called love and life, which is expressed so eloquently in his work. He is an amazing artist, a story teller, and truly the best photographer I’ve met."

"James has a great eye and is an actual photographer, not just a wedding photographer. We decided we didn't want to spend the whole day posing for pictures and wanted to be really present with each other and our guests. James worked in perfectly in this scenario. He got so many beautiful and incredibly genuine photos. It was so hot and it even rained, and I am telling you, there is not one picture of myself that I dislike. Which is not something I have ever said. He truly did an amazing job. Another thing we got with James that I never would have even imagined I could get are some amazing photos of our guests. Since this were less staged, everyone was relaxed and looks to be genuinely happy. I wouldn't have thought I would be able to give people some gorgeous images of themselves from my wedding as well. Again, if you want something that is unlike what the other people are all doing, James is your guy".
