Creativity Beyond Words
Jim is absolutely fantastic! Extremely professional, creative and has an upbeat attitude which made taking photos during our engagement shoot and wedding a total blast. Picture quality is crisp and Jim's ability to take in surroundings and come up with innovative ideas is so impressive. Your photos will be anything but cliche or ordinary if you hire Jim and his team. Can't say enough good things! Also, his processing time for engagement photos was within days (solid 200+ pics from the shoot). We had a sneak peak from our wedding 4 days after our wedding - which was October 19th and peak wedding season. Speedy delivery and our guests all really enjoyed Jim's energy at the event. Highly recommend!Sent on 01/13/2020

Can't be beat!
Jim was exactly what we were hoping for in a photographer for our wedding...and more! My husband was originally not very comfortable with the idea of having an engagement photoshoot or just romantic poses taken in general, but Jim made us both feel so comfortable, and we ended up having a blast with him. Being able to meet up in a brewery and get to know each other beforehand was the perfect way for it to feel like we were all just friends hanging out. The photos that Jim took captured so many beautiful moments that I will now be able to visibly look back on and cherish forever. When we fell behind our planned schedule on our wedding day, Jim and his assistant were flexible and understanding, and they made me feel calm instead of more stressed. I had a wedding party of 11 bridesmaids and 9 groomsmen, so it was a huge group, and Jim was able to manage the group and get all of our most desired shots in, and more. He even made my 4 year old niece, who is initially very shy, feel comfortable, and he captured some of the most beautiful photographs we have of her to date. Jim has been a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend him. As far as wedding photographers go, you couldn't do better!Sent on 12/13/2019

Professional & fun to work with; quality photos
We are so glad we hired Jim Barbere to photograph our wedding. Jim's mix of professionalism with a down-to-earth sense of humor made him a perfect fit for us. We wanted both formal pictures of our family and candid pictures that captured the fun of the day, and Jim and his partner Shauna delivered.
In our first phone conversation, he asked detailed questions to get to know us and our families, and also to get us thinking about the vision for our wedding photos. He also met me for coffee so I could get to know him, which I very much appreciated.
Jim was flexible with shooting locations, arranging to shoot me and the girls getting ready at the venue (The Harbor Room in Gloucester), my husband and the guys getting ready at his mom's house around the corner, first-look shots near the water, family photos back at his mom's house, the ceremony, and the reception. Jim and Shauna drove us from place to place and kept us entertained and calm the entire time.
The part of our day that encapsulates Jim best is when he noticed my 8-year-old niece (our flower girl) was getting antsy to get the show on the road and was about to have a mini meltdown. He handed her his flash and put her straight to work, coaching her with both respect and humor. She was delighted and so were we!
Jim gave us a sneak preview of at least 100 shots within days of our wedding. We got the full set of photos exactly two months later, on Thanksgiving morning. It was great to be able to show our family the pictures when we were all together for the holiday, and everybody loved them.
I would highly recommend Jim Barbere and would be happy to talk with anyone considering hiring him.Sent on 12/12/2019
