Client Testimonials

 Some Kind Words from My Clients

James shows passion and enthusiasm for photography and takes pride in his work which is exactly what we wanted when picking a wedding photographer – someone that loved what they do. On the big day, he took some incredible shots which really captured the feel of the day. More than that, he made having the photos taken relaxed and fun. We got to play with smoke grenades and champagne, which created some unique and beautiful shots that gave the wow factor. We are thrilled with the pictures that James took, and would recommend him to anyone looking for a wedding photographer.

Ali & Olivia - The Cambridge Belfry

5* I couldn’t recommend James enough. From the very first message I sent, James has been friendly, Professional and approachable. We had our engagement shoot with James last weekend. Both of us dislike our photo being taken but James put us at ease from the start. He made the shoot fun and really knew his stuff when it came to positions. We love the photos he has captured and can’t wait to have him there to capture our Wedding Day. Thank you again James

Amy and Mike - Essex Records Office and Writtle Sports Club

I would wholeheartedly recommend James for his creative eye, his energetic work ethic and considerate customer service.
Not only did James set up an engagement shoot to get us ready for the main event, he also visited our chosen venues prior to the big day to select the best locations for photos.
James’s passion for photography is incredible - he was brimming with ideas, he worked diligently to get the particular results we wanted and he is great fun to work with. We’re so glad we made the right choice. Thank you James for being our wedding photographer. Sarah and I are absolutely thrilled with the photos of the day - and the presentation box for the usb stick was such a thoughtful touch

Mike and Sarah - The Reid Rooms

James photographed our wedding in December 2017 at Wivenhoe House Hotel. We live abroad and were not able to visit our venue or meet James prior to the day but we spoke on the phone and he talked us through his experience and how the day would run, and even went to see the venue himself. On the day he and Lucy were very professional, blending in with the celebrations and taking lots of natural shots as we had requested, plus some more formal couple and family photos. He had lots of good ideas for photo locations around the venue, and had the idea to use smoke bombs to capture some really unique photos in the dark outside. We received the full set of photos within three weeks and were thrilled with how they came out. We would highly recommend James for his skill, professionalism, and creativity. 

Leah and Scott Davie - Wivenhoe House, Colchester, Essex

From the moment we booked with James, he was very professional and really seemed to care about getting us the best possible photographs of our wedding. We primarily had an engagement photo shoot, which enabled us to become more comfortable in front of the camera and get to know James (and his lovely assistant, Lucy), before the wedding day. This was a really good option for us as neither of us are naturals in front of the camera and we were a bit daunted by the thought of being photographed professionally! As well as being a useful experience, we also got some really lovely photographs of us. On our wedding day, James and Lucy were friendly, relaxed and unobtrusive. They made sure they took the photographs we had asked them to capture and plenty more brilliant shots that we hadn’t mentioned or thought of. Some of our favourite photographs were the natural, un-posed images that James managed to take of us, and our guests, without anyone knowing he was taking them. We would wholeheartedly recommend James to anyone else looking for a wedding photographer, everything was perfect. Now, we just need to find more wall space at home to display all our brilliant new photographs!

Amy and Tim (All Saints Church, Maldon and Channels)

The pictures are excellent; everyone has complimented on our wedding photography. Thank you so much, these images will be with us forever and we love them so much. We have had many comments on how skilled you were at capturing such natural photographs, without us even knowing you were there. We would both thoroughly recommend James Thomas Photography!

Pip and Tali (Botleys Mansion, Surrey)

Thank you for our lovely engagement photos!! Me and my partner aren’t the best at posing, but you made us feel really comfortable and made it fun! Now we have so many lovely photos to remember and celebrate this time, and you picked the perfect place to take them. Very professional and we are very pleased with the different styles of photos that you made for us. James is very thorough to ensure every moment was taken to capture the perfect photos.

We will be using James as our wedding photographer and recommend James to anyone looking for a professional photographer.

My Fiancée and I recently booked James to do an engagement shoot. We described the kind of image we like and with James’s help and advice we decided to do the shoot at Layer Marney Tower. You can instantly tell that James loves his photography, he is so passionate about his work, always searching out creative locations and ideas.

James really does go above and beyond and with the help of his assistant has managed to capture us so many great images, we are so happy with them. I would have no hesitation in recommending James, can’t thank him enough for the stunning images he captured for us.”

Natalee and Mark

Thank you James, for the gorgeous photos you recently took of our 3 month old daughter. You were very professional and patient with a slightly grumpy and tired baby! It was really helpful that you came to the shoot with so many ideas for photo poses and you were also obliging enough to incorporate our own ideas. We are very happy with the photos – the range of photos and quality are excellent. I would happily, and highly, recommend you to my friends and family in the future. Thank You!

Erin and Andy

James was happy to meet us in our favourite park so we could get some photos of our son in a place that means a lot to us. He immediately put us at ease by taking the time to understand what sort of shots we wanted and building a rapport with Jacob.

We love the photos and they made a great present for the grandparents at Christmas. We are definitely booking some more photos in with our newborn. 

Thanks James
