About

James Thomas Wedding Photography - Qualified master wedding photographer providing creative and emotionally captivating wedding photography with attentional to detail and boutique customer service.

Many couples book me for my creative wedding photography, if you are after some really special images, I can provide you with ideas or we can discuss ideas you have and come up with something really special. If this means staying on into the evening to get you all the images you wish for then that is absolutely fine. As an example, just the other week I had a request to create a winter-themed image for a bride who loved Disney, to do this I had to make it snow for her. I love a challenge so hit me with your ideas and I’ll do everything I can to get you your dream images.

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.

Nadia & Tom
James is a fantastic photographer, and created some really amazing shots for us on our wedding day. He was efficient and professional on what was a hot, busy, long day! He really made taking the official photos enjoyable and seamless, as well as getting some beautiful candid shots throughout the day.

I’d highly recommend James to anyone for any event.
Sarah & Rodger
James was professional and helpful throughout our wedding preparations and on our big day. James has captured some magical moments with the less formal shots too, which he suggested, taken during the morning when we were getting ready, the ceremony and wedding breakfast and into the evening. We are so pleased that all our photos are amazing!

James’ knowledge and expertise of setting up the shots using the background scenery and natural lighting during the sunset was exceptional.

We would definitely recommend James

A wedding photographer is the one person that you are going to spend a massive chunk of one of the most important days of your life with. It’s one of the biggest decisions to make and not something you want to get wrong.

James photographed our wedding 03/11/19.

We invited him to our house to meet him and he brought along some albums for us to preview his work and show us what he was capable of. He was very friendly, polite, and answered any questions that we had, even the silly ones!! He really knows his stuff, we were impressed. As soon as the front door closed behind him and he set off home, we messaged him saying that we wanted to go ahead and book him!!

He kept in contact with us all through the run up to the big day, and became more of a friend giving us hints and tips on how we can make the most of the service he was providing. On the big day he turned up on time (early, infact) with his assistant who was just as lovely as James.

He made 2 people that are usually very awkward infront of the camera feel so comfortable and it just felt natural. We have received our pictures and we love EVERY. SINGLE. ONE. It’s going to be so hard to pick our favourites for the album that we have ordered through him as we love them all. We have loved looking through them because most of the time we didn’t even realise he was there, sharing that special moment with us, taking some unbelievable pictures.

Everyone has commented on how our pictures are not like anything they have seen before, they are very unique, creative and they show our personality perfectly. Which is one of the reasons we went for James as he was up for trying anything and everything, whilst guiding us to get the best outcome.

Thank you James for everything you have done. We will see you again when we next need any kind of photo shoot, and will 100% recommend you to everyone we know. They’d be crazy not to have you.

ames captured our wedding day on 29th February 2020.

The best thing we did for our wedding day was have James there to capture every moment. He was the first supplier we booked and we are so glad we did. From the first email we knew, James LOVES what he does. James doesn’t just take photographs, he creates beautiful images that capture the traditional wedding photos that you ask for and also so many memorable moments that you didn’t even notice! Not only is his work stunning, but he is just such a lovely person all around. We cannot express just how grateful we are to have had him as a part of our day. Thank you for everything!
Anna & Richard
James has a real passion and enthusiasm for photography, which shone through and helped us to get so many fantastic shots of our special day. We recently received the wedding albums and they are absolutely superb. The level of service we received was second to none – James is very responsive, super friendly and always happy to help with any requests. We have recommended James to all our friends and family – our maid of honour has already booked him for her wedding!
Charlotte & Louis
James could not have done a better job. He was friendly and contactable the whole way through, a fair price and the pictures where amazing. It absolutely poured on my wedding day, but we still managed to get photos outside and without getting too wet either due to multiple umbrellas. We received the pictures in 3 weeks and they came out amazingly! There is a beautiful mix of natural and posed pictures to help us reminisce about the day. Will always recommend to any friends and family
Ali & Olivia
James shows passion and enthusiasm for photography and takes pride in his work which is exactly what we wanted when picking a wedding photographer – someone that loved what they do. On the big day, he took some incredible shots which really captured the feel of the day. More than that, he made having the photos taken relaxed and fun. We got to play with smoke grenades and champagne, which created some unique and beautiful shots that gave the wow factor. We are thrilled with the pictures that James took, and would recommend him to anyone looking for a wedding photographer.
Louise & Pete
James was professional and accommodating from the get go. He communicated promptly and we managed to see his portfolio and secure our date with speed and ease. Communication in advance of the day was excellent and James scouted out the venue in advance to ensure the day was perfect. He stayed late to get as many photo ops as possible. We received edited pictures quickly after the day and loved them. Our albumn is also beautifully crafted.
Abi & Mike
James photographed our wedding and we are delighted with the outcome. Very friendly guy, good comms in booking process, gave us some good hints and tips in the engagement shoot which helped us on the day be more relaxed. Fantastic photographs from the day – there are photographs from every angle of the ceremony – but we never even noticed him at the time showing his quality in quietly going about his work and not distracting from the occasion. James had some great ideas as well for some more fun shoots and are so grateful for his work.
Jemma & Adam
5* I couldn’t recommend James enough. From the very first message I sent, James has been friendly, Professional and approachable. We had our engagement shoot with James last weekend. Both of us dislike our photo being taken but James put us at ease from the start. He made the shoot fun and really knew his stuff when it came to positions. We love the photos he has captured and can’t wait to have him there to capture our Wedding Day. Thank you again James
Mike & Sarah
I would wholeheartedly recommend James for his creative eye, his energetic work ethic and considerate customer service.
Not only did James set up an engagement shoot to get us ready for the main event, he also visited our chosen venues prior to the big day to select the best locations for photos.
James’s passion for photography is incredible - he was brimming with ideas, he worked diligently to get the particular results we wanted and he is great fun to work with. We’re so glad we made the right choice. Thank you James for being our wedding photographer. Sarah and I are absolutely thrilled with the photos of the day - and the presentation box for the usb stick was such a thoughtful touch

Leah & Scott
ames photographed our wedding in December 2017 at Wivenhoe House Hotel. We live abroad and were not able to visit our venue or meet James prior to the day but we spoke on the phone and he talked us through his experience and how the day would run, and even went to see the venue himself. On the day he and Lucy were very professional, blending in with the celebrations and taking lots of natural shots as we had requested, plus some more formal couple and family photos. He had lots of good ideas for photo locations around the venue, and had the idea to use smoke bombs to capture some really unique photos in the dark outside. We received the full set of photos within three weeks and were thrilled with how they came out. We would highly recommend James for his skill, professionalism, and creativity.
Amy & Tim
From the moment we booked with James, he was very professional and really seemed to care about getting us the best possible photographs of our wedding. We primarily had an engagement photo shoot, which enabled us to become more comfortable in front of the camera and get to know James (and his lovely assistant, Lucy), before the wedding day. This was a really good option for us as neither of us are naturals in front of the camera and we were a bit daunted by the thought of being photographed professionally! As well as being a useful experience, we also got some really lovely photographs of us. On our wedding day, James and Lucy were friendly, relaxed and unobtrusive. They made sure they took the photographs we had asked them to capture and plenty more brilliant shots that we hadn’t mentioned or thought of. Some of our favourite photographs were the natural, un-posed images that James managed to take of us, and our guests, without anyone knowing he was taking them. We would wholeheartedly recommend James to anyone else looking for a wedding photographer, everything was perfect. Now, we just need to find more wall space at home to display all our brilliant new photographs!
