I am an established professional photographer having spent many years working for BBC Radio Times, Hello magazine and many other national and corporate publications. My focus over the past few years has been weddings, during which I have covered many happy and memorable events nationwide.
Every wedding contains unique qualities special to each couple and with this in mind, I am extremely flexible in tailoring a personal photographic record to cover as much of the day as you wish. This could include photographing early wedding preparations of the bride with the bridesmaids, the ushers, the journey and arrival at the wedding location, the ceremony then through to the final reception celebrations.
My approach to wedding photography involves a discreet, reportage lifestyle, also incorporating formal groups if required, but creating an exciting contemporary record of the day, either in black and white, colour or a combination of the two. Your choices are discussed and finalised at a pre wedding meeting, so that your day is captured exactly as you planned and wished for.
"Jim, a huge Thank You for capturing our wedding day just perfectly. The pictures are fantastic and show the immense joy everyone had throughout the day. We felt extremely relaxed with you there, and our guests mentioned what a great job you did. We have recommended you to our friends and family, and look forward to working wih you again"

"Jim laboured for eight hours on a revolting February afternoon and evening, photographing our wedding in black and white reportage style. My only gripe was that the results were so superb, that it cost me a small fortune in reprints for family and friends!"

"Jim's photos of our wedding day were classy and fun and for the last six years have been the only photos to have kept their place on our minimalist walls. His stylish shots caught the essence of the occasion perfectly"

"Just a wee note from Mauritius to say we've just finished looking at the piccies online on the hotel PC. Many thanks to you and your team for a great job. I even look OK in some! The gallery has so many fantastic pictures in and we both look forward to going through them and putting together the albums to remember our special day by."

Jim, thanks SO much! These are fantastic! We love the revised lay outs. It looks like you got all the important pics in there. You must have had to drop one or two but then we did still leave you more than we could have fitted in! The story works really well as it is, throughout the pages.
