    Amazing photographer!

    Picking a photographer for the wedding was one of the hardest decision. When we found Daniel James Photography we knew we found the photographer we needed for our wedding. Daniel took our engagement session photos as well and made the experience amazing that we could not wait to have him capture our wedding! Daniel helped with our timeline, gave recommendations on how to make sure we got all the photos we wanted and needed during our big day! We are so happy and pleased with our photos that we cannot pick our favorite! We love them all so much!

    Fantastic Experience!

    We used Daniel's Videography service and photobooth for our October wedding and we couldn't be happier. Daniel was very responsive and helpful throughout the planning process and incredibly thorough! Daniel was so very helpful in making our wedding personalized and unique. The photobooth was such a fun touch and we love looking back at the photos. Our videographer on the day of our wedding was Shaundra, and I can't say enough about her! She made us feel so comfortable behind the camera and captured so many meaningful memories. I was truly sad to see her leave at the end of the night--we had a great time together! Lastly, we are completely in love with our wedding video and footage. The wedding day went by so fast and we felt like we were able to relive it just watching the videos! Our video will be treasured for years and we are so happy that we chose Daniel James Videography!

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!!!!
