Hey, I'm James, A Documentary Wedding Photographer based in Derry/Londonderry, Northern Ireland. My calling is to adventure throughout our emerald island to capture the heart & soul of your unique love story on the best day of your lives. 
 
I began my photographic journey in 2014 when my firstborn baby girl came into this world. Not knowing how to operate a camera, but using a smartphone constantly at my fingertips, I bought one anyway. The main reason was clear from the get-go, to document my little girl's growth, but I found in due time that this was an art that I fell head over heels in love with. 
 
Just Imagine holding a picture of the past in your hands and seeing the true value of a timeless spectacle. Fast forward a year later, I wanted to show the world what I had to offer, so, in 2016 I established my photography business into what it is today - A Memory Archive.

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

Based in Derry/Londonderry and travel all around Northern Ireland & Donegal. If beyond, then a travel fee will be applied.

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

8 Years since I began photographing weddings, been self-employed for only 2 years. Photographed around 80+ Weddings.

Describe your "style" of wedding photography.

Documentary Wedding Photographer for the Relaxed Romantic and Fun-Loving.

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

My best seller would be the Sapphire Collection, this has full day coverage, an online gallery with around 800+ High-quality images to download and share, and a 10" by 10" Paisley Wedding Album.

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

If you love tea/coffee let's meet there, chill, chat, go through some galleries and view some of my wedding albums. I can do a Zoom Call if you prefer too.

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

I take part in some great wedding workshops, but love to be a lone wolf when photographing weddings. I have won Wedding Photographer of the Year for my region in 2023 and recently joined the PPANI for Professional Photographers in Northern Ireland.

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