Working with Jim for both our engagement and wedding pictures was an absolute pleasure from start to finish. We instantly felt very comfortable working together, and quickly developed a trust that our photos were not only going to be done professionally, but with a style and personality that suited us as a couple. He has a very keen artistic eye in seeking out novel, creative photographic settings, and is easily adaptable to any situation you throw out there. His communication is excellent, and he’s great about working with you at a time most convenient for your needs. He’s always timely, and never makes you feel like you’re bothering him with questions or other minute issues. His use of the latest digital technology is always an enhancement of, rather than a distraction to, the final product, and his editing is impressive yet subtle. We received tons of compliments on our engagement photos, but incredibly he even exceeded that bar with our wedding photos. Despite us having our wedding on a drizzly day, Jim was able to use the weather conditions to our advantage and produce some absolutely gorgeous shots of us and our family. He gave us an enormous volume of fantastic pictures, yet amazingly he was not pushy or intrusive in any way during our ceremony or reception. Overall, our wedding experience was unforgettable, and it was due in no small part to Jim’s contribution. We’ve already recommended him to friends and family, and will continue to do so. We really will be looking forward to working with him again on another project in the future. –Michael & Bethany Hannaman

“When we were planning our wedding the most important thing to me was my dress and our photographer. Pictures in general will stay in your family forever, and when we received our pictures back from James Studio we were extremely delighted with the quality and care each picture had to it. From the first time we sat down and met he made both my husband and I feel very at ease and relaxed. He got to know our likes and dislikes and a little bit about how we met as a couple. Jim did an excellent job at capturing my husband and I on our special day. If your planning a wedding and want a photographer that will completely satisfy every expectation and more, go with James Studio. We are so happy we did, and will continue to use him in the future for our family photographs.” -Joe & Amanda Morauske
We knew we made the right choice in selecting James to do our wedding when we had him to our home for the first planning meeting. James took the time to get to know my wife and I. He understood the personal nature of a wedding and wanting to customize the experience to our needs. He wanted the photo experience to capture our personalities and in order to do so he needed to get to know us. I’m pleased to say the photos turned out great. Great use of lighting and natural backdrops to frame some tremendous shots. The book James designed is incredible and continues to be a highlight to share with our friends and family. We highly encourage anyone looking to go with James Studio for a unique and customized wedding photography experience!

James Studio was very perfossional they exceded our expectations..The prices were the best all around. The videography was top quality and the resolution superb. Our pictures were beautiful and really capture the moment. Not only that but Jim was willing to work around our big day, staying not only for our wedding and photo shoot, but also the key highlights of the reception. It was very stressful planning a wedding in Wisconsin while physically being in Texas.. But Jim gave me ease of mind, He keep all our ducks in a row for our photos and video. Nobody can give you that kind of reasurance. They really are the best and out way the competition by far. Thanks to James Studio we will never forget our special wedding day!
Very professional and flexible
We had a great experience with Jim and his assistant during the lead up to our wedding and during the wedding day. We recieved above and beyond more pictures than we expected and they turned out beautiful. Jim did well at capturing some unexpected moments during our event that made us appreciate the photos even more. Jim and his staff did well on making our day feel special.

I used James studio as the photographers/videographers for our wedding on December 4th, 2010. The pictures turned our amazing and we were the most impressed with our leather-bound album Jim (head photographer) put together for us…The thing that impressed us the most was the video. My husband’s grandma could not attend the ceremony and reception due to health reasons and watched the video footage a few weeks ago. She’s one of the most composed and collected people I know, so I was extremely shocked when I looked over and saw her crying. After the great pictures, wonderful album and amazing video, this really confirmed that we made the best choice in James Studio to do our wedding photography. I highly recommend them to other couples planning their weddings, and really recommend getting them to do video (especially if you have any close family that wont be able to attend). Our grandma was so thankful she got to see everything. It was well worth it!

James Studio did an amazing job with my wedding photography and video! Everything was more than I expected. He had great ideas for photo’s that I never would have thought of. For one, he had the whole wedding party run across a grassy area. I had my doubts at first but they turned out AMAZING! The highlight video that was shown during our reception was great too. I could tell a lot of time was taken to make sure that everyone would enjoy it. I have received nothing but good comments from family and friends!

Candids and Details
We received our photo album and LOVE it! I love the shiny gloss and having everything completely put together for us is amazing! When I’ve shown it to people they love the book and have even said it makes them feel as though they are looking through one of those gorgeous wedding magazines because of all the beautiful photos. My mom says she loves looking through the photos because she can see the emotions on our faces and the photos actually show exactly how we were feeling that day. My favorite photos are definitely the action shots where people are not exactly posing but rather just “in the moment.” I also love how you and your assistance caught so many details, such as the birds on our wedding cake, and photos of my grandma’s cake topper (which we had displayed at the wedding). There are so many photos that will be wonderful decorations for our home forever, and will always remind us of that special day. Also some of the photos are beautiful gifts for our family and friends. Another thing I LOVE that you did is give us all of the photos on a disk. This allows us to choose our favorites at our own pace and have the freedom to do whatever we would like with them. Last, our slideshow was probably one of my favorite moments of the entire day, because we got to see the happiness of our families and the excitement when friends would see pictures of themselves. I thought your work was wonderful and everything I received from you and your team is absolutely beautiful and worth every penny. I love your assistants and our videos are fun to watch time and time again. — Gina
They look better than what I am Thank you so much. They look great! I have a lot of favorites. — Shevanthi
“We laughed, we cried”
Kellie and I just got done watching the video. We laughed, we cried, we sat in awe of the memories that you captured. It was truly amazing, and it was more then we ever anticipated. Your work is outstanding….and there are not enough words to thank you for this lifetime memory for Kellie and Collin. — Lisa (mother of the bride)
I cannot begin to thank you enough for making this event memorable and special. You did an excellent job! — Ted
It’s very important to have your special day captured on film. There’s so many things that I missed and James Studio captured those moments. I will always have all the memories now. The video was priceless. — Kellie
Thank you Jim! You are a true professional and delivered an exceptional finished product. We love the videos! You have our recommendation. — Heidi
Words cannot describe just how thankful I am that the two of you put so much time into something that Jeff and myself are going to cherish for the rest of our lives. Being able to look back at that day means the world to us. You captured so many “priceless” moments. –Ashley
