Hello! I'm James, the owner and lead photographer here at Flax Studios. My goal is simple, for you to be comfortable and have fun on your wedding day, while I capture the moments for you to relive forever. We're going to have fun, so that when you look back at the photos, it feels natural(not posed). Since 2012, I have captured over 130 weddings, while winning awards from the state level, to the international level! Not only do you receive a seasoned professional experience, but my personality is fun, relaxed, and easy going. Posing will be kept at a minimum, and we'll get through the photos as quickly as possible, so that you can move on to spending time with your guests and family! Please visit the website and lets set up a time to get to know each other more and see if we make a good fit! Look forward to connecting with YOU.

Best Photographer in New England!
James is one of the best vendor choices we made. He was highly recommended to us by the venue coordinator when we booked our wedding. As soon as we saw his work, I immediately said "I NEED him to shoot our wedding!". We instantly clicked on our first call with him. His vision and style of photography fit exactly what we were looking for. We booked him after that very first call! we actually didn't speak to or consider any other photographers! That's how much we loved him and his work from the start. James was always very professional and easy to get in touch with. Early on, we had absolutely no idea what were were doing, but James walked us through everything from start to finish.Sent on 10/10/2019
We first had James take our engagement photos a few months before the wedding and he did an absolutely stunning job! Having photos professionally taken can be really awkward, but James is super laid back and fun and immediately helps take those nerves away. We had our engagement photos taken in Camden Maine, James took us to at least 5 or 6 different locations in the area to get a array of different shots. They all came out gorgeous!
For our wedding, we hired James' wife Laureh as a second photographer, which we are so happy we did! The two of them together are a great team, so professional and great at making it fun and putting people at ease. James in particular was super cute when interacting with our little nieces, getting tons of smiles out of them.
We 100% recommend that you hire James (and Laureh) for your wedding! It will be one of the best decisions you make! We're excited to use him for more events in the future!

Captured our Love Story
We are absolutely thrilled with our wedding pictures from James! There are so many wonderful pictures to choose from (and I honestly can’t believe how good he made me look!). The pictures are artful, creative, playful, and I believe he truly captured our love story. I could tell there was something distinctive about James’ work when I was doing my research – his work is special. I am so very glad he was available for our wedding. He was such fun to work with, and he gave us the most beautiful photos to remember such a remarkable day. Thank you, James!Sent on 12/24/2018

Flax studios is the only photography company you need to consider for your wedding day
Flax studios is the only photography company you need to consider for your wedding day. My wife and I had the pleasure of working with James for our August nuptials, and we were set at ease with his approach and overall care that he took to make our day special. He was able to communicate with us effectively his style of photography, and how the order of events was going to play out, and he made it seamless. There are so many photos of candid moments from our family and friends and we still continue to look at to this day, and we are continually elated with the results. He was able to make use of our venue to create moments that we may not have otherwise thought of, and those areas we did have in mind, he blew our expectations out of the water, and was able to capture those scenes better than we could imagine. He has a laid back but professional approach, confident in his ability to take pictures. James makes his subjects look and feel a level of comfort, we don’t think that any other photographer could replicate to his standards. His level of detail, artistic reach, and ability to see what others are not, is beyond anything we could have dreamed of. James Fleischbert and his studio are the only photography company that you should consider for your wedding or special occasion. You will not be disappointed.Sent on 01/21/2019
