Contact James Ferrara







Jimi has an amazing reputation of not only being creative, fun, and energetic, but being very aware of a timeline to make sure you enjoy your day and not miss a thing. He has 15 years experience behind a motion picture camera on movies and commercials, as well as the SNL Film Unit- which molded him into being fast, on point, and attentive... His wife Natalie, former wedding planner now professional photographer, is Jimi's main associate. The two of them make the perfect team!

Where are you located? Do you charge a travel fee for weddings not in your location?

My location is Hudson Valley NY, New York City area, New Jersey, and Connecticut. Earth is local for me- I've traveled all over for weddings.

How long have you been in business? How many weddings have you photographed as the main photographer?

I started shooting professionally in 2003 while juggling a career in the film business with SNL and movies. Photography was ALWAYS a strong hobby for me shooting medium and large format. I left the motion picture industry in 2007 when I could no longer do both, and have been loving it since! I'm rounding 500 weddings as the main photographer which is a nice milestone :)

What's the typical wedding coverage package that you offer? What is the price?

One of most popular packages will get you pretty much everything you need for around $3000.

Do you have a studio where we can meet? Do you use Skype?

Absolutely! We seriously have one of the coolest studios / private lounge in the area. Feel free to browse our website to see for yourself. We have everything here from a 75" tv, to plenty of albums, to a full bar.

What are your professional degrees, credentials, affiliations? Have you taken any recent educational workshops or classes?

I have a Master of Photography and Craftsman degree from The Professional Photographers of America (PPA) as well as being a Certified Professional Photographer. I have countless NY and National awards from PPA, and local affiliates.

Is there anything else you'd like to share about yourself?

I now shoot with Sony mirrorless cameras which can be totally silent if need be, which make me even more like a ninja.
