Hi, I’m James and I’m a full-time, professional Portland wedding photographer.

My life's mission  is photographing special events, whether that's a wedding, a party or a family birthday.

I create beautiful, natural and stylish photography full of personality in a friendly, relaxed and unobtrusive way.

Life through a lens

Photography has been my passion since I experimented with my first camera as a child.  I’ve been lucky enough to be taking photos professionally for over 15 years now, capturing everything from beautiful weddings at home and abroad to charity black-tie dinner events.  I pride myself on taking photos that look natural, stand out from the crowd and encapsulate the experience.

Take some time to browse through my photos and get a flavour of my work and, if you like what you see, please get in touch so we can chat through all the available options.

Just so you know…

I used to be a marine biologist and scuba-diving instructor, so I’m not scared of a little bit of rain!

I’m ginger, but I can still take photos in the sunshine… I always keep a bottle of factor 50 handy!

You could say I was born for this - when I was 12 years old I was in the classic British film 'Four Weddings and a Funeral'!

Here's what some of my clients have said about me...

"James’s photos made us feel that we were at our wedding again. We knew from our friend’s wedding photos that he was going to be good but the photos were way beyond our expectations. We would 100% recommend him."

“We booked James for our family photo shoot and we are so pleased with the results! James was brilliant at explaining everything to us first and made myself and my husband feel totally at ease, but the best part was his amazing interaction with our little boy…he just loved his fun attitude which really helped us to get the shots we wanted! Thank you so much for the beautiful pictures, we will cherish them forever!”

"James was our photographer at a number of informal and black-tie events. He gave us a great record of the event and his informal shots of the guests were fabulous. He managed to capture everything without any guest feeling he was intrusive. I would recommend him without hesitation."
