The Stokes are the best wedding photographers! They captured our day beautifully AND helped with so many things before & during our wedding. Before, they helped us make a timeline and checked in many times to ensure everything was all set. On our wedding morning, James folded my husband's & some of the groomsmen’s pocket squares, and put my husband’s boutonniere on him. My husband even said James was more helpful than some of his groomsmen! Katie stayed with us girls while we got ready. She captured the moments without us noticing and was great company and fun to talk to! We had a church ceremony, and they stayed at a respectful distance while capturing every moment perfectly. During the family photo session, they did a great job getting everyone arranged and took photos in which everyone looked good. After those, we went to our reception venue where they took awesome photos of us with our bridal party and of the two of us. I’m still not sure how they did it, but they managed to give us and our bridal party 20 minutes before group photos to take a break in the A/C and get drinks, and they finished all the photo sessions 45+ minutes earlier than planned, so we got to go to our cocktail hour! However, they didn’t miss any photo opportunities and gave us 1000+ pictures. After dinner, we went outside for sunset photos. Some of my favorite photos came from that time, so if you can do sunset photos, I highly recommend it! Throughout the entire day, they remained patient, upbeat, and accommodating to whatever we wanted to do. After our wedding, we received all of our photos in an online gallery within three weeks. If you're planning your wedding and get the chance to book James and Katie, you need to do it! Your wedding day goes by so fast and they capture all the big and little moments so you can relive it! James and Katie are truly the best wedding photographers and will go above and beyond to ensure your wedding day is even more perfect than you’re dreaming it will be!

James and Katie are an incredible team! Both of them made us feel very relaxed and at ease during all of our conversations and photo shoots. Our engagement shoot with James was very fun! He captured some of the best moments of my husband and I and the pictures are phenomenal. We were also pleasantly surprised when they were edited and back to us within such a short amount of time! Our wedding day was unfortunately very hot and the ceremony was outside, James took into account of all of that and did a great job at making sure that we were comfortable and had a great backdrop at the same time. They both ensured that they captured every special moment of our wedding day and we cannot thank them enough for that! James and Katie were both so laid back and fun to be around, they truly felt like close friends that we were celebrating our wedding with! We would recommend them to anyone for any photo event!
James and Katie are top notch! Best in the book and we have the pictures to prove it! Professional, Joyful to work with and so careing...You just can't go wrong with these two!
James is one of THE most kind and caring people we have ever met! We truly cannot say enough genuinely wonderful things about his optimistic and compassionate personality. Apply that to a portrait session or wedding day, and you are sure to feel absolutely at ease in front of his camera -- which cannot be over stated when someone is documenting your most important memories!! And this is the reason he is able to capture REAL moments and REAL emotions so beautifully! We are so grateful to have James as a peer and friend in the photography industry and already look forward to the next time we can get together :) -Kelsy & Butch McCartney of The McCartneys Photography, www.meetthemccartneys.com
