We had an amazing day shooting yesterday, they turned out amazing. After all the nervousness we got some awesome shots. James talks with you the whole way through to make you feel more comfortable and he’s open to all your ideas and recommendations. He’s got all the professional needs of the business and all the kind hearted ness of a friend. His wife is also amazing as she encourages him and helps edit all the photos. I got my photos back that night, and he takes plenty to get the best shots! I will be using him for all my photography needs and definitely recommending him to my friends and family. ❤️
