Some might say “choose a job you love, and you’ll never have to work another day in your life”. Whilst not strictly true (have you seen my editing pile??) I adore photographing weddings, and my enthusiasm is there for all to see. There are many things that excite and give me a kick, obviously it’s a wedding day! The creation of something unique to you, the meeting of so many wonderful people, not to mention the vast array of sweet stalls I have made friends with. The real satisfaction for me however, comes from the genuine joy you lovely lot get on receipt of wedding photos. Unfortunately I don’t have the ‘thank you’ whisky or chocolates as evidence anymore, they have been filed away under belly. All that remains are empty bottles, amazing cards, and blush-worthy reviews that have been left on my various social media pages. And of course the memories, of which there are many. From the bottom of my heart, thank you so much to everyone that I have photographed, I wish you many years of love and happiness. Looking forward now to photographing all the weddings I have booked for 2017, I literally cannot wait to make and create thousands more memories.

James Powell Photography Reviews



Vicks & Tom
Venue: A marquee in Rockland St Mary, Norfolk

“If you’re looking for a top notch, creative photographer who will capture every precious moment of your special day then look no further – James is your man!

We had always had a vision of the style we wanted for our wedding photography and couldn’t believe our luck when we came across James’ website. The few other photographers that we had considered lived miles away and as luck would have it James was local to our wedding venue. We only had to take a quick glance at his website to realise he was the man to take the wedding photos of our dreams and boy did he! When we first viewed our photos we were lost for words, the photos James took for us (all 700+ of them!) are absolutely incredible and over and above what we could ever have imagined. James has captured our big day perfectly and not missed a single detail. His artistic eye is genius and he has created stunningly unique shots that capture all the special moments and memories we will treasure for years to come. (I can assure you that traipsing though fields in a wedding dress and high heels was well worth it!!!) Not only is his photography first-class, James is a top guy and a pleasure to be around. He is fun, friendly and professional and made both of us feel so at ease in front of the camera on our big day (and thats saying something for a couple who really dislike having their photo taken!). Many of our guests also commented on what a great guy James is and how well his fitted in with the day.

I would recommend James to anyone, we genuinely couldn’t have wished for a better photographer to capture our wedding day. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU James, the photos are perfect! Vicks & Tom X”

“James is just brilliant. From start to finish he was always friendly, communicative and funny. He is not only a great photographer but he is like the coolest guest you have there. He is so sweet and works with you to feel comfortable and as if you’ve known him for ages. Thank you James for being there on our big day. You totally delivered. x  James is the best!”

Alexa & James
Venue: Tipi in a field, Redgrave, Suffolk

“Just under 3 weeks ago James was our wedding photographer and we couldn’t have been happier with both how he was on the day and the end result, which we already have on USB. All our guests commented on how amazing he was, he blended in well, was not intrusive in any way while taking photos and was also happy to sit down for dinner and chat with our guests!

James made us both feel very comfortable in front of the camera which I thought would be quite a challenge for my new husband! There were lots of laughs and this has been well and truly captured on camera! 

Our photos are simply amazing, he has captured the day so beautifully giving us great memories. Natural shots are definitely the best and this is what James does best. The photos tell a story which is exactly what we were hoping for. And I didn’t need to worry about the miserable weather spoiling them! Everyone got a bit emotional viewing the slideshow, particularly my mum!

We highly recommend James as a wedding photographer and can’t thank him enough for our incredible photos. I can’t stop looking at them 🙂

Venue: Waxham Barn, Norfolk

“James was the most amazing photographer for our wedding. We would highly recommend him. The photos were absolutely amazing and there are loads of them! If you are looking for a photographer with a quirky edge and who is not in your face taking photos all day then James is your man. We hardly noticed him taking our photos, which meant we were free to enjoy our day without having to be in lots of posed shots. Thank you James! Anna & Mike”

Katie & Andy
Venue: White Dove Barns, Suffolk

“Well where do we start with James? Friends of ours got married a couple of years ago and posted their photos online for all to see. We were instantly struck by the style of them. They seemed so relaxed and creative and we loved the fact so many of the photos captured aspects of the wedding you just don’t see in formal shots.

We contacted James and he kindly agreed to come for a visit and a chat, I think within minutes we knew we’d found our guy. We wanted someone who had a similar personality to us and we certainly got that with James, he just “got” what we wanted to capture on the day. 

On the day itself James couldn’t have been anymore brilliant, he made everyone feel so comfortable with gentle direction and lots of great ideas (our outside in the rain photo is one of our favourites). We had so many of our guests saying how hard he was working and what a generally nice bloke he is.

We cannot recommend James enough, we love our photos and they will be treasured forever – thank you!

Katie and Andy xx”

Harriet & Sam
Venue: A Barn in Beccles, Suffolk

“We are absolutely thrilled with our photos. James has captured our day perfectly. What we loved about James was his enthusiasm for the area we got married and his personality. James made us feel at ease and would sneak us out to get the perfect shot! All our photos are amazing and I would recommend James to everyone. Our photos are natural and different, capturing the personality of all our guests. Thanks again James for such fantastic photos.”
