Creative, relaxed and cool wedding photography based Staffordshire, Shropshire, The West Midlands but travelling to wherever your big day takes me!

Hello! Thanks for stopping by and welcome to James Merrick Photography! I’m James, a creative documentary wedding photographer living in Staffordshire. I photograph amazing weddings across Staffordshire the West Midlands, Shropshire but I’ll always travel to wherever your big day takes me! I LOVE telling visual stories of special days & creating memories couples look back on forever.

I would describe my style as natural,  fun, edgy with my creative background shining through! I love to photograph happy people, people smiling, having fun, relaxed with nothing forced. I look forward to hearing from & meeting with you, capturing some awesome moments you can relive over and over.

“James is an unbelievable photographer! He captures the special and beautiful moments in such a natural and non intrusive way, you wouldn’t know he was there. We can’t thank James enough for our absolutely stunning wedding photos..each one is a piece of art”

I pride myself on telling the visual story of your special day. A wedding photographer should blend in with your guests capturing all the special moments, from the tears, to laughter to crazy dancing, I’ll make sure you can relive it forever.
