My partner and I had the absolute best day on our wedding day and an absolute pivotal part in making that happen was James.
From the very first correspondence with James, we knew we were in good hands. He is the loveliest person to talk to and you instantly feel like you’re chatting to a long time friend. James took the time to get to know us, what we liked, and the vision we had for the day. Using all of this he was able to recommend locations, vendors, tips and tricks for preparing in the lead up to the day, and so much more.
One thing I really want to highlight in all of this is how much this did for alleviating the stress of planning. This extended to on the day as well. James was an absolute master at asking the right questions at the right times, checking in more and more as the planning and lead up to the day ramped up, and being there in case we had any questions. If you’re looking to have a stress free wedding/elopement experience (and you really should as its meant to be enjoyed!!!) then I can’t recommend James enough – and I haven’t even gotten to the day itself yet!!
The day was simply fantastic! We opted to do an early morning sunrise shoot, since dabbling in photography ourselves meant we knew that sunrise lighting was softer. Sunrise? Not a problem for James – he was at the ceremony location even before us! The morning of our day was sleeting snow. James did not let this affect his work flow in the slightest and I think that the photos really speak for themselves. There were so many moments that James was able to capture without the traditional posing to worry about. James also managed to elicit many candid moments through conversation – the photos turned out amazingly. James was also able to find so many cool and interesting photos that are genuinely some of our favourite images!
James is a master of his craft and he really demonstrates an eye and attention for detail. Not to mention, his style of photography has this timeless look about it and this resonates across every photo I have had the pleasure of viewing in his portfolio. It doesn’t matter the weather or location – James does not miss a beat.

When my partner and I got engaged, we knew throwing a big traditional styled wedding just wasn’t for us. But we were unsure of how to go about doing a wedding more suited to our style. After some research online, we came across James’s website. It covered everything we needed to know about eloping and, honestly, sounded perfect.
We spoke with James on the phone, and he answered any concerns we had with doing a wedding like this. He was so kind and full of energy. We felt like we were talking to an old friend! So it was a no brainer we wanted to hire him to help us pull this whole thing together.
Throughout the planning process, we received a lot of emails and texts back and forth, so we never felt in the dark about anything. From the start, it was smooth sailing and very easy working with James.
When our big day finally rolled around, we got to meet James for the first time in person, and he was just awesome. We had the pleasure of working with him for 8hrs, and I don’t think there was one second of that time where he wasn’t full of energy and excitement for us.
James helped us decide on our location at Charlotte Pass, where we did a 10km hike before our ceremony, and our closest friends and family waited to meet us in the valley at sunset. The day was just perfect. We had so much fun and didn’t feel awkward or stressed at all during the day.
We said multiple times during the day that we wish we could do this every year! It was so special and fun, and we couldn’t be happier with how our photos turned out. We had 20 guests for the ceremony, and they all said how beautiful it was. Even people we were worried about offending by not inviting them were incredibly happy for us, for doing it the way we wanted.
Now that we have our photos, we’ve been able to share them with everyone, and we have received so many compliments on how stunning they are and how wonderful our day looked.
If you are considering eloping or doing a small wedding like we did, I would 100000% recommend hiring James to be your man. He is the best, we couldn’t recommend him enough!
