A wedding day is packed full of emotion and the moments you spent the last year planning fly by quickly. With over 10 years of experience as a photojournalist, I specialize telling your story by finding those special moments that make your day unique. Nothing gets me more excited than seeing raw emotion pouring out of the photos I make. My mission is to tell visual stories for my clients with high caliber, documentary-style photography and to create meaningful artwork with professionalism and enthusiasm.

Describe your "style" of wedding photography.

All my wedding collections include full day coverage of your wedding. My most popular collection includes a second photographer, an engagement session and a storybook wedding album.

I have degrees in journalism and photography from Appalachian State University in North Carolina.

We loved working with James! He is so easy going and laid back, but has great attention to detail. His work is incredible and we received our photos so quickly! We absolutely love them! It was a great mix of the formal family photos we wanted and candid ones captured during our day.
