Simon's photos are beautiful, stylish, fun, artistic and a true representation of your wedding day story.

Great wedding photographs don’t just happen.

They take skill, preparation, flair, meticulous attention to detail… and something more.... a fun attitude.  Simon will have you laughing and joking all day.  Not posed or forced, genuine laughter and this will be reflected in your photo's.  All the moments of joy captured forever.

For us, great wedding photographs start in the relationship we build with the couple being married.  And that relationship lasts well beyond the wedding.

Simon was a fantastic photographer to work with, from day 1 when we met him he was all about wanting to make our day perfect and on the actual day his professionalism and sense of humour helped to ease a stressful morning and make for an amazing day/afternoon of photos. Very impressed and happy with all our photos!

It really felt like we had another friend there with us on our big day! We can't recommend Simon highly enough; going above and beyond, he is the man you NEED behind the lens. He is so friendly, heaps of fun to deal with, and makes you feel so relaxed! The passion and love for his job seriously shows through his amazing photos.

Simon was truly amazing! he took the most amazing photos that I have ever seen, his interaction with the whole bridal party and guests was truly an experience, he made everyone laugh sometimes so hard, he would make an awesome comedian, great one liners lol, we were so comfortable with him and he was well worth the money we spent, our photo album looks breath taking beautiful! Simon doesnt just throw photos into the album he tells the story from start to finish so it all flows, He is well worth the money truly remarkable man with his craft!!

Simon James was brilliant. I don't consider myself to be at all photogenic, yet Simon was able to get the most amazing candid shots throughout the wedding. We were so impressed with our album. He makes you comfortable and laugh naturally, which totally puts you at ease in front of the camera. Bloody brilliant! THANKS

Simon and I connected from the very first phone call. He is fun, relaxed and thoroughly professional. Simon’s many years of experience are evident in the quality of pictures he was able to capture on the day. Thanks for all your hard work Simon - it was a pleasure to have you as part of our day. :)

I loved being part of your beautiful wedding day. #myoffice

He really listened to what we wanted for the day. Made everyone feel really relaxed, especially my husband who never smiles in any photos, so many photo where he's genuinely smiling.

Simon James Photography  

Hey Claire, that hubby of yours was easy to capture. Once I had leant what his fake photo smile was. I quickly found ways to make him feel relaxed and his natural happy smile was all I saw, all day long!

Really good! Made us comfortable on the day and was very organised. Didn't have to wait long for our photos.

Simon James Photography

Simon is a true artist. He has an eye for detail and works hard to ensure the day is captured. I would highly recommend him to anyone who asks

Thanks Amanda, I loved your wonderful details that you added to your day. Paper flowers, great flare with your shoes and personalised vowels. It was a joy to capture your wedding day story...

10 Oct 2016

I can not recommend Simon enough! All the guest raved about how he was such a vivacious person. His shots were always unique to our personality and not a "standard" wedding album. My husband hates his photo being taken but was laughing and having a great time throughout the process.

Simon James Photography  

Nat, your wedding day was a brilliant day at my office. So much fun had by all...

12 Apr 2015

Really good! Great personality and he was all about personalising the photos to us as a couple. He was funny and had a relaxed approached which was great. Happy with quality and price!

We chose Simon James Photography because I had seen previous work by him at the same venue and absolutely loved the photos. Throughout the whole experience we felt relaxed and comfortable. Simon James is fantastic at directing us to look the best we possibly could on the day. He worked very well with our videographer as well. Couldn't have asked for a better photographer and the photographs turned out amazing. We were so happy we ended up ordering extra pages for our album!

Together we created a stunning finished wedding album . Thanks for your review!

We couldn't have been happier having Simon as our wedding photographer. He worked closely with us to ensure that we got the photos we wanted, plus he captured many amazing unexpected moments. Our album not only captures moments in time but it brings the spirit of the day to life.
