Best day so far!

Daniel was very helpful in advance in giving ideas and didn't just do all traditional shots. He was never in the way...but always got the shot.

Daniel James Photographer is a reputable wedding photographer in our region who provides photography, videography, photo booth & uplighting/monograms for weddings and special events. We actually hosted Daniel's own wedding at our wedding venue and his company provided the photo booth, uplighting, light monogram and videography services. All of the equipment mentioned was state-of-the-art and worked beautifully. Daniel directed the placement of all of these items and his choices were spot-on. On a personal note, Dan and his wife are lovely individuals and a wonderful couple. It was a privilege to host them at our venue, C. Barton McCann School of Art.

As someone who has used Daniel James Photography both as a personal photographer and as a business associate, I have nothing but praise for Daniel and his work. Daniel is professional, courteous, personable and absolutely amazing at what he does. His work is hands down the best on the market!!! He was born with a camera in his hands. His work speaks for itself. I have watched him photograph a wedding and then look at the finished photos and the bride and groom did not even know of him being present taking the photos. He moves around an area with such grace and ease that the people do not even know that he is there which allows him to capture those once in a life time moments that can not be duplicated. If you are looking for a photographer to capture those special in life, Daniel James is the man for the job!!!! He gets 5 stars from me all the way around!!!!
