Let’s talk about 2018 shall we?

Let’s talk about 2018 shall we?


THE BIG ONE. The year I took a huge leap and became a Staffordshire wedding photographer! I’m so lucky to have worked with couples who have put their trust in me to capture and document their big day and what a journey it’s been so far! I have honestly loved every second. You can see some selected slideshows of couples I’ve worked with here.

The purpose of this Journal post is to showcase some of my favourite images from this year, not only from the weddings I have photographed but from some of the commercial work I’ve undertaken and also the amazing places both myself and my wife have visited.

The summer saw us have a relaxing week on the quiet side of beautiful Ibiza and a direct opposite with a long weekend in Berlin, a more urban less relaxing experience! I have worked with The Drifting Bear Co. on various occasions this year producing lifestyle images for their Not On The High Street store, It’s been so lovely so see my images show up their website and social media! It’s safe to say, If we visit a new place my camera is usually in my hand so you may spot a wide range of images in the showcase below.

People I’ve had the privilege of photographing this year with have said such lovely things about me too! here is a snapshot below:


“James’ tireless energy from dawn till dusk captured exactly what we required. His invisibility as he moved throughout the day was not realised fully until we viewed the photographs. What a result! Thank you!” Lesley & Errol Bailey


“James recently did our photography for our marriage blessing. We have only had a sneak preview so far but what we have seen is incredible!  James is a genuinely lovely guy and his work is outstanding. We honestly can’t thank or recommend him enough!! Really easy day, no pressure, totally laid back and amazing photos to capture all the precious moments. If you need a wedding photographer, you need this guy… we promise you won’t be disappointed!!” – Mr & Mrs Bailey


“We were absolutely thrilled with the finished result. James went above and beyond what we hoped to achieve in the 2 days working together, and our new lifestyle product photography is now fresh and inspiring, bringing our products to life. James also took some ‘behind the scenes’ photos of us at work that we were also delighted with and even snapped some really beautiful family shots as we relaxed between working.– The Drifting Bear Co.


Thank you each and everyone of you for your kind words! and to the couples I’m working with this year, see you soon for some awesome fun!

Here’s to an amazing 2019! enjoy my showcase of images!
