  • From the moment we first had contact with James we knew he would be the perfect photographer for our wedding. We felt that he really made the effort to get to know us and ensured that the photos of our wedding reflected what we wanted. He was laidback, friendly and professional and, most importantly, the results were stunning! He managed to capture every special moment and the photos bring back all the feelings from our special day. My husband and I highly recommend James to those who are looking for a photographer who puts everybody he works with at ease and provides spectacular photos - you will not be disappointed!

    Thank you for the kind words, Suzan! I'm so happy that you loved the photos and that you enjoyed our time together - yours was an amazingly beautiful wedding and I felt so lucky to be given the task of capturing it.

  • James photographed our wedding in June last year and we couldn't be happier with the results. From our first communication all through to the delivery of the photos James was communicative and accommodating. On the day itself James made the whole experience enjoyable and easy going. James was very well informed on the brief that we had agreed beforehand and had picked some excellent spots for our pre-ceremony and first look photos. During the rest of the reception James captured the atmosphere of the day perfectly without feeling intrusive. His style and framing of the photos is exactly what we were looking for and his easy manner made it all the more fun to work with him. We would highly recommend James as a wedding photographer, it was simply a pleasure to have him photograph our wedding. Thank you James. Maria and Tom

  • James was fantastic! He made us feel so comfortable leading up to, and on the day of the wedding by just being really laid back, professional, and easy to work with. And our pictures - WOW!! They are so beautiful, and they captured the feel of our day so well - you can feel the happiness and warmth and love that everyone felt. We are beyond thrilled with the pictures.

  • James was amazing from the moment we met him. We loved having him as our photographer (he did our engagement photos too!). In fact he's so good, we got my brother and his wife to use him for their wedding.

  • We loved working with James for our wedding day! From our first phone conversation with him, we knew he was a perfect fit for our style and vision. We were so happy that he was able to capture the spirit of the day with candid photos, while also capturing the more formal photos that we also wanted. As two over-planners, we loved his suggestion to map out the different groups for our formal photos so that we could take them more efficiently. It went so smoothly that we hardly missed any of our cocktail hour. Even better, the pictures turned out great! James went above and beyond, from driving out to meet us at the wedding site to make sure he knew all the best locations to shoot ahead of time, to researching where the sun would be at the exact day and time of our wedding so that he could work with the lighting to get some perfect pictures. James also coordinated seamlessly with our videographer on our wedding day and they collaborated in a really positive way. James blended r... Read more

  • James was a perfect choice for our wedding. From the first phone conversation, we felt extremely comfortable with his plan for our wedding. He was enthusiastic about our venue and our plan for the day. You could immediately tell James has a relaxed disposition and was willing to be flexible to help us feel confident. James stayed in contact with us throughout the time leading up to our wedding. He came with us to preview the venue and get a sense of what he might do. On the day of the wedding James was an amazing balance between listening to what we wanted and being a professional and taking the lead when we were unsure and needed an expert's eye. James captured amazing pictures over the course of the eight plus hours. Our families were stunned by the quality and artistry of the photos he delivered to us. The pictures he was able to get made us wonder how it was we never noticed him. Overall, the best part of James is his friendliness. Weddings obviously have many facets that can... Read more

  • James was an absolute delight to work with. We got the engagement and event package, and this was the right call, because the engagement session with just the three of us allowed us to get to know him better. He didn't want to pose us too much so the photos would be natural, and they were! We got our edited engagement photos in a sharable format promptly. James was communicative over email and text within a day or two, always punctual and professional. During our wedding ceremony and reception, I had no idea he was even there! We had him do our "getting ready" shots and was happy to pop in and out of our room to suit modesty preferences. During our formal posed photos, he was able to wrangle our families to get the shots we wanted, and found the prettiest and best-lit spot on our venue. I haven't seen our final photos yet, but I know they'll be wonderful. I highly recommend James Hardman for your wedding or special event photography!

  • James was great to work with and the photos came out great! Prior to the wedding, James took the time to get to know us and learn our preferences over the phone. Despite the tight schedule the day of the wedding, he managed to pull us aside to get some great photos of just the two of us. Without disrupting the reception, he got a great mix of candid shots, as well as more formal group photos. Throughout the entire process, he put us at ease and it shows in the photos. We would highly recommend James for your wedding!

  • James was simply the best photographer we could have hoped to find. Aside from being professional, super responsive, punctual, having quick turn around and being an amazingly talent photographer we could tell he genuinely cared about getting to know us as a couple, what our style was and it is shows in the photos. We went with the engagement and wedding day package and I would highly recommend it, it was so nice to spend some time with him before "the big day". We did our engagement shoot in portland Maine in an industrial area and our wedding was on the coast of Maine so it was nice to have two totally different style of photos. On the day of the wedding James was so easy to work with, he figured out the best locations, angle, timing and lighting for the photos well we just went about getting ready and enjoying the best day of our lives. He covered every aspect of our wedding perfectly, from getting ready, the ceremony, family photos, capturing cocktail hour, reception and our couple ... Read more

  • We are so happy we found James to be our wedding photographer. In planning and on the day of, we loved his flexible, easy-going nature. He was always looking for the best light and angles and clearly avoided anything that could look staged. As we were going through the photos, we were baffled by how James seemed to be everywhere at once but we barely noticed. He let us be ourselves and it showed in the end result. I can’t say enough about how amazing the photos came out and how perfectly he captured the day. His work is fantastic and he clearly loves what he does. I highly recommend James!!

  • James was the first vendor I booked for my wedding! He does amazing work! He promptly got the photographs to me and there were so many - all of which were beautiful, well thought out and unique. He even followed us back to "camp" after the formal events to get my dream shot on the lake! I am so happy he was part of our day!

  • I couldn't be happier that I found James to photograph our May wedding in Portland! From our initial contact, he was totally genuine and completely understood our vision for how we wanted our wedding captured. Communication could not have been better with James throughout the planning process (phone, email, and Facebook!), which was such an asset to me as I was planning from 200+ miles away. He scoped out our venue as well as some potential places around town for a first look, sending me pictures beforehand to get my input. On the day of our wedding, James showed up on time and got right to business, splitting his time well capturing everything that was going on. He was both well organized based on the details that we discussed and flexible in making our suggestions work! James' easy going personality really took the stress out of the day - and he did a great job of keeping us on time (not an easy task with a bridal party of 12 wandering around Portland!). Within a month of ... Read more

    Wow, thank you so much for the kind words. I had such a great time working with you guys, your family and all your friends. Everybody was so easy to work with, and I think the pictures speak to the occasion. Let me know if you ever renew your vows- I'll be there!

  • James photographed our September 2016 wedding and we were so thrilled with the photos. He took the time to meet with us at the wedding site beforehand, and really listened to what we wanted for the photos. James was punctual, very responsive, personable, courteous, and a true professional. He captured our wedding beautifully, and we are so happy we got to work with James for one of the biggest moments in our lives.

  • James photographed our wedding in August 2016 and he was a real pleasure to work with. He came to see our location in advance and made sure he was clear on what we were looking for. We had a rather DIY wedding and he was super accommodating to our personal style, never pushing us to do anything we hadn't envisioned, and he took great photos. He was super friendly and our guests commented on how nice our photographer was! Highly recommended.

    Thank you for the kind words, Hillary. What a beautiful night it was, and what wonderful people to work with.
