  • Oh my goodness, only wonderful things to say about James! He did our wedding photography this past weekend in DC at the DC War Memorial and within TWO days he had our photos to us! James was recommended to us by our incredibly officiant, Jeffrey Maszal, and he was so much fun to work with! I sent him a few ideas before the day of and he made sure to capture all of the shots I wanted. He was flexible and exuberant and we are just so happy with his work!

  • James did our engagement photos and wedding photos, and we could not have been happier! He was wonderful to work with and the photos are incredible. I was worried about photographers who get in the way (especially during the ceremony) or stress brides out by constantly asking them to pose, but James and his assistant were perfect. We 100% recommend him for anyone looking for a fun, laid-back photographer who can take amazing photos!

  • James was a joy to work with in the lead-up to our big day. He was patient with my now-husband and I as we warmed up for the camera (quite literally on a cold late fall day) for our engagement photos, which turned out to be spectacular. And our wedding photos the next summer were nothing short of perfect. We did not have a formal wedding party, which meant there was more time for candid photos of guests. This allowed James' real talent to shine, as he is a master at capturing the emotion of the moment. He also took care to note the charming details of our historic venue and the decorations. It's been a couple of weeks since we received the photos and it's been incredibly heartwarming to relive that joyous event every time we go through them. The value could not be surpassed. Many thanks to James and his assistant for their masterful work in capturing these memories!

  • James was great! He was so easy to work with and extremely professional. My guests continually commented on what a great job he was doing and how sociable he was with them throughout the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. He comes highly recommended!

  • Our wedding officiant, Jeff Maszal, recommended James, and we are so thankful. By far, James is one of the best photographers ever. My wife and I really enjoyed working with him. Also, his prices are very reasonable. We initially shopped around for an affordable photographer, and their estimates were no less than about two weeks salary!! We were very happy with the package that James put together for us. There were so many candid moments that he captured just right! James had the best ideas for making fun and original wedding portraits, too. After the wedding, we received our pictures on a USB stick in a bamboo presentation box. My wife and I highly recommend James!

  • DO NOT HESITATE! Go with James! James did the best job on our wedding. He was so fun to work with, had great ideas, and the photos themselves came out perfect. Can't beat his pricing, either. 100% recommended! - Dave and Junko

  • James was amazing to work with - both during the planning of our wedding day and the day of. I consider myself a very neurotic person and James was very responsive and accommodating to any questions I had leading up to it. It ended up pouring rain during our entire ceremony and portrait sessions. James handled it very well and suggested that the wedding party get matching clear umbrellas and shoot in the rain anyway! We have gotten a few photos back already and they are gorgeous!

  • James was the perfect choice for us and we would highly, highly recommend him to others. He was always available and responsive, arrived on time, was for all practical purposes--minus the portrait shots--invisible during the event, was timely with delivery of the final photos (3 weeks), and did an excellent job of photo selection and slideshow production. We really couldn't be happier. James is incredibly easy to work with and really made us comfortable right off the bat, despite neither of us being particularly enamored with the idea of being in the cross-hairs of a camera for six hours. After reviewing our photos I was amazed at some of the shots James got, and couldn't help but wonder how he did that because I couldn't remember him being there. For example, he got some wonderful shots of our dinner and I have zero recollection of him even being there....but apparently he was, and managed to grab some of our favorite moments for posterity. He really is a master of the photo-jou... Read more

  • James was fantastic! We love our photos and he was so kind and accommodating. Our engagement shoot was awesome too, we had something very specific in mind and he totally rolled with it and took some wonderful pictures. I will say he has a specific style and his candids are his strong point, which we loved, but just something to consider as he does not give a lot of direction for traditional posing.

  • James was absolutely fantastic! He was so kind, helpful, professional, and just a super easy person to be around. I was very nervous about being in so many pictures but he made it so comfortable and easy. He really made this whole process go so smoothly. James was willing to take any creative input and ideas we had while also coming to our wedding with his own. I am so glad we chose him as our photographer. He was very quick to respond to us beforehand during the planning process, and he was so willing to work with us on our big day, even with a few last minute changes. I would definitely choose him again for any other event if I could!

  • We used James to take engagement photos and could not be happier with the results! James was extremely responsive as we were planning - and he was also very flexible. At his suggestion, we pushed our photo shoot back a day to avoid the rain. In the end, the photos turned out great. We really appreciated his laid back nature and enthusiasm for photography. We'd definitely use him again!

  • We decided to elope at the last minute and our officiant recommended James to take our pictures. We decided to not tell anyone that we were eloping so the only people there were the 2 of them and the 2 of us. James was amazing!! He was an absolute joy to have be a part of this special day. He made us laugh and captured our moments perfectly! The pictures turned out even better than expected! The pictures he took not only showed the love my husband and I have for each other but the absolute fun time we had taking them. It was exactly what we wanted and needed since we didn't have any family at our ceremony, James was able to capture the moments on film and because of that everyone saw the excitement, joy and love as well. We would absolutely recommend James for any wedding!!

  • James was just FANTABULOUS to work with! His work is just amazing! He was so responsive and creative for both our engagement shoot and our wedding day. He was a real trooper despite the hot and humid weather and the pouring rain towards the end! His photos were just what we wanted! He has a real knack for capturing those endearing moments that we LOVE. He was calm and composed on our wedding day and his work shows just how hard he works and how much he loves what he does! We absolutely would recommend him to everyone.

  • Our photos taken by James turned out great and the slide show was a nice addition. He even asked for songs we liked to go with the slide show. We didn't do a videographer so this helped make up for that. James was easy to work with and easy going. We did a first look and all of the family photos before the wedding. James helped keep us on track and moving before the ceremony. My favorite photos are the candidate ones James took. He capture some really great moments. We also really like that James did not have a time limit and stayed all night. We have a great picture at the end of the night of everyone dancing and hugging.
