  • Douglas and Rachel were recommended by my wedding planner so I knew I was in good hands. My husband HATES his picture taken and talk of photography put him in a sour mood throughout our planning process. I was really concerned about how our images would turn out. I arrived for our First Look to find my husband laughing and at ease. I don't know what Douglas and Rachel did to make him feel so comfortable with them, but I couldn't have been happier! My husband looks relaxed and is smiling in all our pictures - it is a miracle! In addition, Douglas offered some amazing drone photography of our wedding (we got married at home) - they are some of our favorite photos of the day! While these two things were huge in making our day special, I will say I was super impressed with how much I didn't notice Douglas and Rachel on our wedding day - they did not throw themselves in front of guests or make their presence obtrusive as they captured our special day. Highly recommend this team!

  • We love doug. Like really LOVE this guy. So talented but so cool and easy to work with. He recognized that I’m super type a and need schedules and lists and timelines and he helped me feel mire in control of situations I couldn’t control...like down pours during the entire day of my wedding. Our engagement photos came out perfect and I know our wedding pictures will too. Hire doug and his team and you won’t worry about pictures for one second.

  • Douglas is one of the nicest, most professional photographers we have ever worked with. Working with Douglas was so easy. He captured the images of our event with out being intrusive, everything just flowed perfectly timeline wise. In addition, our images turned out gorgeous. I really can't thank him and his staff enough! If you are looking for a relaxed event with fantastic photos, this is the team to contact!

  • I knew well before I got engaged who I wanted to photograph our wedding and I know we made the right decision! Doug and his team were amazing. They made the day light and fun while sticking to a difficult timeline on a very cold day. We got married on the coldest NYE in 40 years but our pictures are full of warmth and fun and we have Doug and his team to thank for that. From the beginning, Doug made us feel comfortable and was so easy to talk to and work with. He was flexible and worked with us on our budget and created a package specific to us. We absolutely love our photos and cannot wait to see our video! We’ve been in and attended many weddings where the photographer was rude and made you feel uncomfortable but I can honestly say Doug was extremely professional was so much fun to work with! I highly recommend him and his team!

  • How do I even begin this review. Let me start by saying wedding photos are THE MOST IMPORTANT aspect of a wedding, in my opinion. The dress does into a box, the flowers will wilt, the food will be a distant memory. The photos you have forever. Doug, from day one, has been my wedding photographer. I saw his work from my cousins wedding YEARS ago and I told my (then boyfriend, now husband) that he HAD to be our wedding photographer when the day came. My husband and I started talking seriously about getting married and before we were even engaged we met with Doug. He is so sweet and personable. We did an engagement shoot with him which I HIGHLY recommend doing. It gave us a chance to get used to his instructions and how he wanted us posed (like a trial run before the wedding!!) When the wedding day came we were like pros! We got our photos back within 2 weeks! and there is NOT ONE bad image. The highest quality! Everything came out so perfectly, he captured every detail that I ... Read more

  • We just got back our wedding photos from Doug and could not be happier with them! It was so much fun to relive our wedding day - they are absolutely stunning. Doug is incredible. I met him at a wedding expo with my mom right after getting engaged and told my fiance he had to meet him. Doug went out of his way to come to our house to meet both of us and tell us about his packages. You could feel his passion, and his pictures exuded it. We knew we were in good hands and felt so thankful to have found him. I really wanted to have an engagement session but my fiance was a bit unsure at that time. Doug ended up talking us into it and my fiance couldn't be more happy that we decided to. Not only was I happy that we did since I had wanted to, but we both felt so much more comfortable after we did - we had never been professionally photographed before so this was a great opportunity to see what it was like, and get to know Doug even further. He made us feel really comfortable, kept things laid... Read more

  • Finding the right photographer and cinema team to capture the memories of our most important day was huge for us. Douglas James and his team did not disappoint! Doug was extremely professional and quick to respond through all of our communications, when we met in person and reviewed all of the options, we instantly saw that his passion for capturing these memories was as important to him as it was for us, we knew we found our photography and cinema team. It was nice that the combination option was available through one vendor and many packages were available to fit your wants and budget. We were unable to complete our engagement session prior to our day, so we had some nerves about how everything would go on our wedding day but Doug set our minds at ease. We met with Doug at our venue about a month before the wedding day for a site walk through, Doug amazed us as he built a timeline from start to finish; this process made us feel so comfortable about the flow of the day; we knew t...

  • Where do I even begin?! Doug and his team were absolutely amazing! He was completely professional, yet fun and down-to-earth. Our families and bridal party were blown away by him! By the end of the night, Doug and the team truly felt like family. I have yet to receive our proofs, as our wedding was just a few short days ago, but what I was able to see took my breath away. He was able to capture the love and fun between my husband and I in a way that I didn't even know was possible! For that, I'm incredibly grateful. I cannot recommend Douglas James Studios enough! An absolute must for brides looking for that extra special photography or cinema team!

  • Doug traveled to Mexico to cover our destination wedding; he was nothing short of AMAZING....and this was even before we got to see any of the pictures! Doug did such a wonderful job of organizing the bridal party, and making sure things ran smoothly; he didn't miss a beat and was on top of everything! I had all of my pictures back promptly, and they left me speechless! they are absolutely stunning- I cant stop looking through them!! Everyone who attended my wedding raves about Doug, and what a wonderful job he did; I couldn't imagine having ANYONE else capture the moments of our special weekend! "Doug is the man!" as my husband and groomsmen say... :)

  • It was an amazing day because of him! He was very attentive and made sure the schedules were followed. Even though it's been months since the wedding, many of my guests are still telling me what a great job he did! He definitely made the day memorable.

    Thanks so much Lori! It was certainly one of our MOST memorable weddings. Loved working with you!

  • The entire team at Douglas James Studios were wonderful. I had my wedding outside of the Philadelphia area, and when I first spoke with Doug about it he had no problem making the trip.... and for an affordable price. Doug is very easy to talk to and will listen to everything you want and try to incorporate that in. He was also very good with sticking to the time table and not losing track of time, which was extremely important for the limo rental. All the guest were raving about how great the photographers were the next day. They were so engaging and interactive with everyone, which made it a blast! All around Doug was an excellent choice, where we got great quality photos at a great price!

  • Doug was so much fun to work with and super creative too! Our pictures turned out gorgeous and he even photoshopped every gnat that was flying around that day (it was a very buggy evening!) and the stitches on my husband's forehead (a nice souvenir from his bachelor party.... :/ ). Thanks Doug!
