About James

 Who’s Behind the Camera?

Hello and Thank You for Stopping by….


Hi, I’m James, a wedding photographer in Essex, based in Maylandsea, just outside Maldon.

A massive congratulations on your upcoming wedding, being part of this exciting journey with my couples truly is the most amazing honour.

To give you a little info about me, I first found my love for photography over 25 years ago, going back to the days of film and processing images in darkrooms. I know I don’t look old enough!

My parents bought me my first camera when I was 12, while we were on a family holiday and my interest sparked from there. For me, there is something magical about photography. It is so rewarding when you know your images have really touched people and that is one of the many reasons I am so passionate about what I do. My clients often comment on my energetic and creative approach.

Having got married myself in 2014, to my wife Lucy, I understand that choosing a wedding photographer is a daunting task. After all, they will be spending a lot of time with you on the most important day of your lives. This is just one of the reasons I put so much time into planning, meeting with and helping my clients make sure everything is precisely planned and perfect on the day.

All the best,

James Thomas

Photography that’s fun…

I like to make photography a memorable and fun experience for my couples, this often involves pushing the boundaries a little.

I can often be found with creative lighting setups, smoke grenades and many other things to create stylish images with that something a little extra.

It’s easy to write about why I think you should choose me as your wedding photographer but I believe in providing proof, please check out my testimonials and this lovely video review from Jemma and Adam.
