I’ve just seen all the latest reviews and testimonials for James Powell Photography. The feedback has arrived for the 2018 Wedding Industry Awards, and I can tell you I have had an absolutely gorgeous morning reading all the wedding couples responses. All I can say is ‘wow’. I am absolutely blown away. I mean, talk about an ego boost. My head is big enough already, but seriously it’s about to explode! Chuffed to bits, over the moon, grateful beyond words, and dare I say proud of myself. Literally, I have run out of superlatives. Maybe I can squeeze in a few more though, otherwise this will be a very short blog post. It’s going to be difficult rattling on about how amazing last year’s wedding season was, as I’m sure you can imagine! And the amount of thanks and praise I need to give back to everyone I have ever had the pleasure of photographing. It’s been seriously amazeballs.

James Powell Photography – Reviews & Testimonials

“I have been bridesmaid several times and have never met such an amazing wedding photographer. James goes above and beyond to capture everything that is important to a couple of their special day. He is such a pleasure to invite into your home! I feel like I’ve known him for years and his photographs were quite outstanding! I would not recommend anyone more highly!”


“From the outset James was great, he took time to fit in with our schedule as we live outside of the UK. When we first met to go over our wedding you could see the passion in what he does. He even started getting excited about ideas way before we had even thought about them. His modern style of photography is simply amazing. His eye for a great shot makes him one of the best photographers I have ever seen in action. The end product is the proof.”


“Where do I start with James? He is not only a likeable, fun, down to earth guy, he is truly an amazing photographer who has given us wonderful memories which are so ‘us’. James has such a buzz for what he does & worked extremely hard on our wedding day! He’s work in my opinion is outstanding, you can tell he LOVES his job. I do not get bored of recommending him, and never will, he truly deserves all the success coming his way. Nobody would be disappointed in booking him. We love him!”


“From the second we contacted James we knew we’d made the right decision! James is the friendliest, funniest, most relaxed person we have met and it made us feel 100% at ease with him. He made sure we got all of the shots we requested and understood when we were constantly getting dragged away by guests! When we received our photos I cried with happiness at how beautiful he had captured our day, his work is just incredible! Would recommend James in a heartbeat!!”

“The photos are brilliant – it only took 2 in the slideshow to start Laura crying so I think I’d call that a huge success! James was a pleasure to have at our wedding, He helped make it such an unforgettable day and added all these fantastic images to our memories of it.”

“James was great from planning to delivery, one of us from the start, warm & friendly & unnoticeable when needed to be.Extremely flexible to accommodate our vision (and some requited staged pics) but yet genuine to his very creative style highly complimented by everyone. Delivery of the pics was before the agreed time, more pics than expected, each of them stunning & well presented in a branded box with a personal note. PERSONAL. PASSIONATE. PROFESSIONAL. That’s James: the best.”


“James fit seamlessly into our wedding day naturally, almost as if he was a guest himself, putting people at ease and always ready to make people laugh and smile. At the same time, he would blend into the background and take some wonderful photos that we never saw him moving around to take. All in all, we could not be happier. We couldn’t have wished for better, more beautiful memories of our day, and that is thanks to James, his style and personality, and his dedication to his craft.”


“I’m sure James is fed up with my constant positive feedback by now BUT this guy is truly truly amazing! Here goes a long review but very well deserved…. We booked James almost 2 years before our big day from a list of around 80 photographers (which we painstakingly looked through, every single one). The photographer, for us, was one of the most important parts of our wedding day so we knew we had to find someone perfect and ‘us’. The moment we came across James Powell’s website we instantly had an awesome feeling about him. His wedding pictures were flawless and we just loved his style. Meeting him for a coffee chat we absolutely knew he was the one!! We didn’t need any time to think about it and agreed there and then that we needed to have James as our photographer. And he didn’t disappoint, not one teeny tiny bit. James and I are quite awkward in front of the camera and had a sort of dread about having our pictures taken all day long but James made us feel at ease instantly and we think the final pictures speak for themselves of how much fun we had with him photographing our day. He is one of the most likeable, down to earth, easy to get along with guys I’ve ever meet in my life and i secretly want him as my new BFF!! He even stripped down to his undies to get some pretty cool sea pictures which was hilarious – we do have photo evidence to the highest bidder! His energy throughout the day was astonishing and you could tell he gets a real buzz for what he does and what he is planning to create with his pics. I cannot stress enough how amazing James is and what beautiful memories he has provided us with. I will never get bored of looking through our pictures and slideshow! James you are an absolute legend. Thank you again for being frigging awesome and super talented! We are ever thankful we stumbled across your website and got the chance to meet you and book you. We wish we could do it all over again! Huge love for you James”



‘James was prompt in replying to our initial enquiry and then he spent plenty of time getting to know us and happily discussed our requirements both via email and telephone. He was caring and attentive to our needs and wishes at all times. He took on our thoughts and provided fabulous suggestions. He is utterly professional and very talented. We were thrilled he was able to photograph our wedding and will always treasure his work. we are very grateful to him!’


“His professionalism and yet friendly and laid-back attitude was really what we were looking for in a photographer. James was very in tune with the way that we wanted our day to go, and with the kind of moments that we wanted to capture, being largely very natural and not posed or manufactured. His online presence and attentive communication was a real bonus also. Again, we could not have been happier and were very lucky to have found him!”


“Having contemplated not having a photographer at all, James was the best decision we made for our wedding day! Not only were the final photographs exceptional and a perfect way to remember our day but he is such a lovely man, made everybody feel at ease and blended in on the day itself. The majority of the comments we received from our guests after the event were about James, how lovely he was, great to have around, non intrusive and about his beautiful work! Highly recommend!”


“The pics of our wedding are incredible. They capture the whole feel of the day and all our guests said that. He makes us look photogenic and we most definitely aren’t!! James is so lovely to have around too he had a great way about him with everyone. He listened carefully to what we wanted and had to accommodate a groom who didn’t want many posed for photos !! We had a mix of traditional and natural shots we literally said wow at every pic we saw.”



I am so over the moon and eternally grateful to everyone that voted, and for all the amazing comments. It has been an outstanding year for me professionally, and personally too. Thank you from the bottom of my heart to all of you. And to all the couples I am yet to photograph, you have the James Powell guarantee that I will give it a million percent every time. If I don’t have face ache from smiling so much, or need my foot spa at the end of the day, then I have failed you.
