Information For James Thomas Photography

Captivating and stylish wedding photography with a creative edge. Providing elegant wedding photography combined with creative and artistic imagery.

Hello I'm James, a very warm welcome to James Thomas Photography.

If you are looking for a creative wedding photographer who is absolutely fanatical about creating amazing images of your wedding, I could just be the wedding photographer for you.

With so many different styles and approaches to wedding photography finding the right wedding photographer can seem like a mammoth task. Unfortunately, there are a lot of unqualified, uninsured and inexperienced photographers marketing themselves as professional photographers, often using portfolio builder courses and photographing models for their portfolios.

My promise to you is that all the images In my gallery and on my website are from real weddings that I have captured, I am a qualified and certified member of the master photographers association which means my work has be judged by some of the best photographers in the UK. I am fully insured, use only professional grade equipment with backups in place to ensure I can provide you with a first-class service.

Since the evolution of digital photography, the opportunities for creativity have sky rocketed and there really is no better time to be a creative wedding photographer. You can probably tell how passionate I am about wedding photography, its such a rewarding profession and one I absolutely love being part of.

Planning your wedding is truly one of the most exciting journeys and something I love helping my couples with. I pride myself on operating a boutique-style business which means from the moment you first contact me I am right with you every step of the way through to delivery of your images. I am there to offer help and advice whenever it's needed. Myself and my wife Lucy often find ourselves helping couple will all aspects of their wedding, we are both always happy to help wherever we can.

My emphasis is always on keeping the wedding photography as unobtrusive and natural as possible while ensuring I deliver the images my couples expect. I provide modern and stylish wedding photography with a creative and artistic edge. I will document your day as it unfolds, catching all those moments, some of which you won’t have seen happen yourselves. In addition I will help direct you for certain images to help you look your best, I don’t go heavy on posing unless it is requested but I will offer advice and guidance on how to stand, posture, hand placement etc to ensure you absolutely love your images.

The key to photographing a wedding well is planning which is why I go to great lengths to understand my couples and what they want out of their images. I love discussing ideas with my couples and always looking for those unique photo opportunities. If you have a shot in mind, no matter what is involved I will do my absolute best to get it for you. My couples have had me standing in rivers, hanging out of trees and getting myself in all sorts of situations to get that winning image for them. I won’t jump out of an aeroplane for an image though, if you want that, I may not be the photographer for you, but I’ll do pretty much anything else.

To make sure we plan the shots into your day, I offer help with timelines. I even work out what time the sun will set on your day so you can incorporate sunset shots into your timeline should you want them. Often couple request night shots, if it’s the middle of summer when it stays light quite late we can go back out after the first dance to get the shots. It’s important to me to deliver the Images my couples request no matter the time of year. I can actually turn day to night with a bit of trickery in camera so whatever you want we can get it for you.

I use natural light as much as possible, but I also come with a very equipped lighting setup to get you all those night-time creative light images. I can often be found in the evenings at wedding venues setting up smoke shots and all sorts of creative add-ons to capture unique wedding images. I like to add as much creativity for my couples as possible such as sparkler images, fireworks, pretty much anything you want to do.

If this all sounds good, I’d love to hear all about your wedding. I’ll put the kettle on, and we can start planning your perfect wedding images.

Please get in touch to see if I have your day available and book your absolutely no obligation consultation.

Top Wedding Tips

Planning is key, make sure you discuss the images you want before the wedding

Be on time, most importantly get into your dress on time to allow plenty of time to get some nice formal images while everything is in pristine condition

Take time out on the day to soak it all up, the day goes by very quickly so try to slow down and enjoy every minute of it. My couples often comment about how I caught moments they didn't know happened
