    If you’re looking for an intimate, adventurous (and slightly wild) wedding photographer, that’s me! My couples don’t have time for stress, drama, or  boring, they want to create once in a lifetime memories with their closest friends and family, unlike anyone before them. They want a day that is both genuine and honest to them, doing things differently and not worrying what others think of it. If this sounds like you, watch the video below.

    Clients Testimonials
    Kody & Bridget
    James, as a photographer, is like a Golden Retriever Puppy crossed with Gandalf, so take confidence in handing over the creative reins to him for your photography coverage and you will not be disappointed. He will become apart of the wedding party; you are all joking and laughing and then *poof* he's gone taking photos like some kind of interdimensional photo ninja, then he is back in front of you, joking with coffee or beer in hand. His awareness of his cameras, lighting, environment, and people create an inspiring, natural and emotional film reel. I mean, I cried during my ceremony and then the photos he supplied to us immersed my wife and I back into that exact moment bringing on a fresh number of tears and appreciation for choosing James. 5 stars every time!

    Paul & Sinead
    What can you say about Jimmy? We contacted him about 4 months before our elopement date, and basically told him we had no plans, no vendors, just an idea to elope in the mountains. From that, this guy literally took it and ran! He recommended there most amazing vendors who made our day what it was, and even picked out the ceremony location, and the portraits location based on just getting to know us and who we are. To say he nailed, every single aspect of the day, would be a true understatement to him. Not only is he professionally one of the best in the country, but we genuinely miss him. Our 1 year old daughter gravitated towards him like a magnet, and the vibe he helped create on the day will be forever remembered. Lots of love Jimmy, you're a total legend mate.

    El & Ben
    Working with Jimmy was like working with a best friend. He embraced (and encouraged) all our weirdness and to top it off, the pictures that he took are just beyond this world. I have been obsessing over them, and SO many of my guests have messaged me just to tell me how beautiful they’ve turned out. I couldn’t recommend him more. He is easy to communicate with, took the time to get to know what type of couple Ben and I are which has really been captured in our pictures. Without a doubt, he specialises in these types of intimate, quirky weddings. 1000 gold stars for Jimmy, love you mate!

    Matt & Amie
    Jimmy is by far the most extroverted, hilarious, personable and downright entertaining photographer you will ever work with. His sense of humour coupled with a truly dedicated attitude to genuinely and honestly tell every couples actual story (not some template bullshit) shows through in the work he produces. There's a reason Jimmy specialises as he does in weddings like ours, because he just gets it. He is a low-key guy and our guests loved how much he comfortably engaged with them. They were upset to see him leave at the end of the day! Money very well spent. I recommend using him hands down. It’s an age old saying, but you definitely get what you pay for in life.

    Our wedding photos are absolutely stunning and I can’t recommend James highly enough. Not only that, but the videography services he provides are unbelievable, and made us cry like little babies when we watched it! James is a really likeable guy, making you feel chill and at ease always, he is brilliant at his craft, super organised and an efficient and effective communicator. Thanks James, see you again in the future I'm sure :)
