Love, Captured

Soulful + Cinematic

Wedding Photography.

Made with love in

San Luis Obispo, California.

Searching for your wedding photographer shouldn’t leave you feeling unwanted. Since my business’s inception in 2017, inclusive service & love for all has remained priority number one - to document the intimacy & affection shared between people of all backgrounds, identities & budgets. It’s not enough to simply capture love, but to spread it far & wide! As such, I work diligently to create a safe space for authentic expression with a whole lot of fun in between shots. I do this by being vulnerable and staying open to everyone I serve on a human level. If this resonates with you, you've come to the right place and I look forward to connecting with you.

i believe photography is for everyone.

“The thought and care put into each photograph is nothing short of magical.”

Who I am

Hey, I’m James! I live for the simple things: good food, good people, good times. Big fan of music festivals, spontaneous adventures, and getting outside to hike, camp, cycle and climb. I am also blessed with an amazingly supportive partner named Jamie who teaches meditation ~ she keeps me chill. Above all, I love connecting with others and taking photos of them! I feel incredibly lucky that I get to hang out with amazing people during some of their biggest moments and make art out of memories. If you enjoy my work and feel like we’d vibe, drop a line anytime!

Artistic

There are two common stylistic realms that many photographers dwell in: light & airy or dark & moody. My style sits balanced somewhere in the middle!

 

During my sessions, I guide you through some simple yet elegant poses which convey a sense of timeless romance and fun. I then edit & grade the images in a cinematic & soulful direction to complete the look. While other photographers use presets & filters to create their images, I take the time to edit everything from the ground up. In doing so, each session has its own unique aesthetic & feeling that lasts.

 

When we're together, I am always a friend first & foremost! While I practice professionalism each & every step of the way, I believe the best images are captured when the vibe is light-hearted & playful. Maybe you’ll even forget all about the camera… :)
