You want to have the best day of your life and be able to relive every minute of it.
remembering how you felt on your wedding day is something you value.
i’m here to capture that for you.
When looking back at the day where you got to commit yourselves to each other, you’ll want to remember how you felt. You’ll want to remember the stories that you told each other and how it felt to recall those first moments you met, and how far you’ve come.
You’ll want to look back at your mates having a complete blast with you, sharing the joy, the tears, and the celebration of you marrying your best friend.
These are the most important things, and it’s what my big focus is on.
candid, artistic, and raw storytelling.
i’ll document the tears, the joy, and the real.
This is why I have such a focus on capturing you being yourselves above everything else. No fake smiles, no forced smooches.
All you have to do is be yourselves.
This means you’re going to spend your time enjoying each other’s company and the start of your marriage, rather than being stuck in awkward, cheesy poses which really aren’t you. Who wants to do that on your wedding day anyways?
Certainly not me, and not the couples I create awesome artistic and authentic imagery for.
If you’re reading this and it is sounding more like how you envision getting married, then read on friend.
forget the poses.
let’s capture you.
creating art through your story.
Documenting one of the best days of your life is something I truly thrive in because I care about you having an incredible set of images to look back, and relive your day through.
All the couples you see here have been captured here being themselves. With no loud mouth yelling ‘LOOK LIKE YOU LOVE EACH OTHER’, and putting you on display to other people, like some sort of carnival attraction.
I believe you deserve stylish, and authentic photographs that you can look back on. Connecting with how you felt on the day, and remembering exactly why you smiled at that one point, or how it felt to have that time together after the excitement of the ceremony to just unwind.
Whether that involves celebrating with friends and family, or carving out your own adventure, travelling around forests, exploring waterfalls, or even stargazing with pizza at your own private cabin.
I’m here for however you’d want to start your marriage. My unbundled elopement packages means that you can have the freedom to celebrate your connection and relationship without constraints.
So you can be yourselves, and shrug off all of the pressure.
but wait, what is an ‘intimate wedding’?
“We can’t wait for it to be over to be honest”
Coming from a bride a few days before their wedding, these words broke my heart and made me re-evaluate my whole ethos and approach to wedding photography.
This is where my focus came towards intimate weddings, where the focus is on the couple, and not of pleasing everyone else. I limit myself to weddings of less than 130 people.
My name is James, and I’m here to take as much of the stress out of wedding photography as possible, and help you have a fun, exciting and authentic wedding.
I do this by:
how it all works
This is the stress-free experience with me.
relaxed and comfortable photography.
You want to look back in years to come and remember how you felt. I don’t believe in forcing emotions, rather creating a fun, comfortable and welcoming space where you can be who you really are together.
expert wedding advice and guidance.
You deserve to have a day expertly crafted by a professional who will be able to design something that suits you. I have been capturing and supporting couples since 2017, and have the guidance to help you have the perfect day.
timeless hand crafted art pieces.
Whilst digital photos are fantastic, it is far too easy for them to collect digital dust, and to be quickly forgotten about. Instead, I offer a real focus on creating archival quality museum-grade art pieces for you, turning your house into a home and giving your story the platform it truly deserves.

full day wedding photography.
Having the whole day documented might seem a little odd at first.
It might be how you think that the getting ready photos may not matter really, as you can have friends there to use their phones to capture some of the dress going on.
However, telling the full story of one of the biggest days of your lives is something that will give you the most complete experience.
I recommend having your intimate wedding day fully documented, so that you’re instead going to relive:
this isn’t about having an all day ‘photoshoot’.
this is about documenting your journey.
The truth is that if I had someone yelling out poses to me for 12 hours, I’d hate it. Trust me.
However, the reason you are having a wedding isn’t to have an all day photoshoot. The reason you are getting married is to celebrate your story and your love, in an authentic and personal way.
