James captured our wedding day perfectly. He was professional and provided great advice for the day. We are so happy with the end result and have had a lot of compliments on the photos from family and friends. Would highly recommend.

My Husband and I are so glad we chose James Thomson as our wedding photographer. We honestly cannot recommend him highly enough. James provided an excellent service throughout the entire wedding planning process. He responded to all of our emails in a timely manner, and he was happy to do an engagement shoot on his day off which he included at no cost with our wedding package. James takes really special, beautiful, candid, photos which means that all of our wedding photos look very natural and capture the emotion of the day. He is very talented and experienced, and this is evident with his work, as he always manages to capture that perfect moment during our wedding ceremony, speeches and dancing etc. He also managed to get a photo of nearly every couple / guest at our wedding (no small feat when you have 120 guests). This meant we could include a photo of each wedding guest with our thank you cards which was a nice touch. James is really easy to work with and he is the type of photographer that you feel very comfortable around while he is taking your photos. He is always very patient, calm and polite. Nothing fazes him. James also gives you a sneak preview of your wedding photos within a 24-48 hour period after the wedding, which is very helpful if you want to design thank you cards with a photo from your wedding day on the front cover. We also received our entire wedding data room and album very soon after the wedding date. His pricing is also very competitive. Thank you James for doing such an incredible job of capturing our wedding… we will treasure these photos for years to come!

James offers such a high level of professionalism. I loved how relaxed yet focused he was in making sure he captured the perfect photos for us on our special day. He made sure everything went smoothly and nothing was a challenge for him. Couldn’t be happier with the photos we received. Highly recommend using such a talented and hard working photographer.

Thank you so much to James for capturing our wedding day! We absolutely loved all of our photos and appreciate how you spent hours out in the cold wind to get the best scenic shots ☺️ you were so easy and comfortable to work with especially when we had no idea how to get nice couple shots, giving us plenty of direction! Definitely can’t recommend James enough!
Clare J. (11 Mar 2021)
James is outstanding! We couldn’t be happier with the photos – they are of exceptional quality and he captured the day perfectly. On the day, James was a true professional and exceptionally easy going – our guests have also commented on this. Thank you James – we can’t thank you enough, you are amazing at what you do.

James was absolutely fantastic to work with at every stage of our wedding. We had an engagement photo shoot as well as the 8 hour photography package for the wedding day, and both experiences were fantastic. He was professional yet made sure that we felt comfortable, and all guests commented that he appeared to be everywhere at once to get exactly the right photos. He knew how to direct each of us on how to stand/where to go to achieve the best photo (which was amazing as all of our bridal party had no idea what we were doing!) After the wedding we received sneak peeks very quickly, and then all wedding photos (over 700) were received within 4 weeks of the day – with each of them being edited to a high standard and were exactly what we had hoped for.

We are so thrilled with James’ photography. We met James at a close friends’ wedding and thought he must know the couple because he was so personable. Their photos were stunning so we knew we had to book James if he was available. What we noticed is how professional, efficient but also very relaxed and personable James is. The photos were exactly what we wanted – capturing special moments but not too staged or fussy. James was flexible and we booked a smaller package due to having a small covid wedding at our home. We thought the time restraint would impact the ability to capture special moments at such a small event but James did an incredible job and we are so thrilled with our photos.
Elise B. (20 Feb 2021)
My husband and I were so happy to have had James take our photos for our wedding. We met with James prior to the wedding and we very quickly made to feel at ease and gained the confidence in booking James for our big day. We had envisioned a very relaxed day, especially when being photographed which is what James delivered. James made our day run so smoothly and we are completely elated with the images he produced. If you are looking for a well organised, relatable and professional photographer, James is who you want there on your big day! Thanks James!

James was amazing as the photographer for our wedding day! He was so relaxed and easy to work with, and was very reasonably priced. As my husband and I were not so comfortable in front of the camera, James gave us some gentle guidance whilst perfectly capturing us as a couple. He was also kindly very flexible with the changes we had to make to our wedding with COVID. We were so happy with how our photos turned out and will certainly cherish them for many years to come! I would easily recommend James as a wedding photographer to anyone.
Sarah G. (14 Feb 2020)
James was amazing! He was super helpful in lead up helping us decide what we wanted to do on the day + very responsive. Our friends and family were blown away by our wedding pics and a few friends have already asked for his details for their weddings! Big thanks for making the day so easy and for being so easy going!!
Alice F. (28 Dec 2019)
James was a pleasure to work with. My husband doesn’t have much patience and I knew he wasn’t going to do too many photos on the day or complain if it was taking too long. James got amazing photos quickly, efficiently and dealt with my husband very well, so I didn’t have to! Haha He was a pleasure to have there on the day and captured the day perfectly! I would highly recommend him.
Kathryn G. (14 Dec 2019)
We could not recommend James highly enough. He was so easy to work with and contact in the lead-up to the wedding. He did extensive research into photo locations near our venues. He was extremely professional on the day but also really relaxed which put us at ease. He produced the most beautiful and natural wedding photos of our day. Probably the biggest compliment to him is the number of our guests who have asked us for his contact details to engage him for work.
Kristy G. (8 Nov 2019)
James was absolutely fantastic and I cannot recommend him highly enough! He was easy going and amazing with the bridal party. He captured all of the important moments but also so many of the small intimate moments that made our day so special. We loved every single photo and the albums were gorgeous. He guided us through the day and made everything so easy. I wouldn’t have changed a thing!
Kaylyn B. (2 Nov 2019)
Highly recommended – James is an amazing photographer. He captured all the moments and emotions on our wedding day whilst making us feel relaxed and making the photoshoot a bit of fun. James has the ability to capture the those moments between shots where the true emotion lies. He was prompt at getting all our wedding photos back to us with hundreds of photos, all of which we absolutely love. James is a friendly, easy going guy and well and truly knows what he is doing as a photographer.
