A close friend recommended James to me a couple of years ago for some professional pictures I needed, and he surpassed my expectations! I later hired him again for our engagement pictures and once again, James went above and beyond what is expected from a typical photographer. He listened to what our vision was for our pictures. Then brought his own ideas to the table for our consideration as well. We loved them! He is always trying new things with his camera, lighting, etc. So, when our wedding came around a year later, naturally we stayed with the professional that keeps supplying us with beautiful, fun, photos that we love so dearly. He has endless energy. And believe me, he earned every penny! He worked very hard for every photo. The day of our wedding was a very long day and he and his assistant worked tirelessly. We are very pleased with James. He is a true professional and his photos are fabulous. Worth every penny. When your big day is over, all you have left are the memories and the photos. What an investment!

James was amazing to work with. He was so flexible and was open to any of our ideas/requests. He started shooting super early when the ladies were getting ready and stayed late into the reception, which I really appreciated. James is so professional and was able to capture some great candid moments. His presence is so inconspicuous that there were many times we didn't even realize he was shooting (which is great for people who don't feel super comfortable in front of a camera). He has a natural creative talent and was able to suggest a lot of great ideas and set ups for the pictures. He was also very organized, which made the formal pictures (i.e. wedding party and family pictures) go smoothly. I have gotten so many compliments on our wedding photos and I'm even having a hard time picking which ones I want to frame, as there as so many great photos to choose from! I would highly recommend James to anyone looking for a professional, skilled, and personable wedding photographer!

James is a stellar photographer. He and his shooting partner Lori Hill did an amazing job on our wedding, he arrived early for makeup and stayed late for the bouquet toss. James' presence is unassuming and professional. He really loves what he does, and doesn't ask for more than a fair compensation for the work he puts into it. Overall 5! 5! 5!

James was amazing. He met me at the hair salon to get pics of hair & makeup and was with me the entire day! Our pictures are absolutely breathtaking!! We can relive this day forever through these beautiful pictures. Thank you James!

James photographed my destination wedding in November 2010. My pictures are absolutely amazing! Everybody that I show my pictures to absolutely loves my pictures... people tell me all of the time that it looks like my pictures should be published in magazines!
James also shot our engagement photos. Prior to the session, my husband disliked posing for pictures and smiling at the camera. James' style of photography was perfect for my husband... he captured more of the natural shots of us interacting with each other, instead of setting a pose and then smiling for the camera.
James was also very flexible and accomodating for ideas that I had for pictures. I had an idea that I wanted a couple of shots on a bench, but the benches at the location where most of our pictures were taken were not what I had in mind. So James agreed to go to another nearby park so that I could get the pictures that I envisioned.
James had a super quick turnaround on my prints. Within 2 days of my wedding, some pictures were available online. His prices are also very affordable... an extremely great value for the price!
Overall, I would highly, highly, recommend James... my only problem is trying to figure out which pictures that I want to frame, because I love all of them! Thank you, James!!!
