James did the photography for my July 2018 wedding and my engagement photos the year prior and is AMAZING. After finding James online, I contacted him about doing photography for my wedding, and we set up a contract and engagement shoot. He was so friendly and made my then fiancée and I feel so comfortable. His pictures were stunning and I was so excited he would be wedding photographer as well the following year.
For our wedding, James and his assistant, Silas, did a beyond INCREDIBLE job. They did photography for us about 12 hours! Before the wedding, James and I went through a timeline and "must have" pictures, and he made sure to stick with it and do those throughout the day. James and Silas made the whole bridal party feel so comfortable and we all trusted their vision. They even showed "teasers" on a screen during our reception which was awesome. The next day, James sent us some teasers and we were in complete awe of his beautiful photos.
Our whole wedding gallery is STUNNING. Azalea Photography is the BEST! I have received hundreds of compliments on my pictures and even the day of people were complimenting their professional work and teaser pics. All of my family and friends love our pictures just as much as my husband and I do, and appreciate the beauty of the wedding that was captured. James and Silas not only captured the beauty of our bridal party and family, but have such a creative, artistic element to each picture that makes them so unique and interesting. We had so many gorgeous, artistic shots that I am in love with. I don't know how I'll be able to choose which ones for an album!
Book with Azalea photography and you'll be so happy you did. The pictures I have from my wedding (and engagement) are ones I will cherish forever. I cannot thank James and Silas enough for so beautifully capturing the best day of my life and giving me memories to have forever. Thank you, thank you, James and Silas. You guys rock!!!Sent on 08/07/2018

Azalea James is a talented photographer. I'm not a photographer but am a classically trained artist. Azalea's portfolio stuck out to me in my search for a wedding photographer - I seriously had looked at hundreds of photographer's portfolios within and over my budget. He truly has a great eye for lighting, composition, and catching special moments and is better than many photographers who charge twice as much. He is super affordable, and has a shockingly quick turnaround. He does a free engagement shoot as a trial too, which is really nice.
I would 100% recommend Azalea Photography. Both our wedding and engagement photos were ready in a few days, and the blog post with teaser wedding photos was up the same night as the wedding! I absolutely love both our wedding and engagement photos. They are creative and beautiful. Even the shots throughout the wedding reception catch those perfect little moments of guests enjoying the wedding. James was also easy going and a pleasure to work with. He had good suggestions and ideas when we needed them. We didn't have a ton of time to do the wedding photos, and he was able to get them all done beautifully!Sent on 07/25/2018

James and Cylis photographed my daughter's wedding this past weekend in Lake Geneva, WI. James has already posted some photos on FB as teasers and they look fantastic! After meeting with James a few times, we contracted him for "Save the Date" and the wedding. James is always responsive via email and open to ideas and suggestions. Very easy to work with which is reassuring during the planning process. I always felt confident that James was "on top of it". I would highly recommend James, and, for potential customers to visit his FB page. James even came on Friday evening to photograph the Rehearsal dinner and provided a good sized Photo Booth for the reception which was a HUGE hit with the guests. My advice would be to check out different vendors and go with who you feel most comfortable because you only have one chance to get your pictures right.Sent on 06/16/2016
