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.

*Pre-wedding portrait sessions available
*Packages and pricing to suit your budget
*Internationally sought-after photographer
*Exceptional attention to detail

Simon James is a highly skilled and sought-after photographer who is a joy to work with and who will create a magnificent visual record of your special moments.


26+ yrs of photographing weddings give me the edge on making sure I'm at the right place at the right time to capture all of the moments on your wedding day. If your wedding is black tie, then I will wear black tie. I will blend in with your guests, you will hardly know that I'm there for most of the day. I'm always fun, always professional and I always get the shots!

I don't need any minimum amount of time.  I always tell couples to plan their perfect wedding day and I will capture thier day as it unfolds infornt of me.  My job isn't to create your wedding day.  My job is to capture/document the day as you have planned it.

No.  The files have no watermark on them.  I give you a full set of the digital files in both HIGH and LOW resolution.

No.  Absolutly no limit on the number of images taken.  I shoot until it has ALL been captured.  From the smallest moments, the little details through to the biggest group shots and family combos and everything in between.

I will have your images ready for you witth in the week after your wedding.  I will also send you a few of my fav images to your phone on the night of your wedding.

No, with over 25+ yrs of experience I've learnt the subtle art of been invisable at your wedding.  I dress as one of your guests and blend into the crowd whenever I can.  You may not see me, but I see and capture eveything.

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 is the most amazing photographer! His vivacious personality helped us relax and had all the guests in laughter. He is extremely professional and has an amazing attention to detail which results in the most amazing images. All the guests still rave about him! Cannot recommend Simon enough!

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. :)

does the higher price in a wedding photographer mean better quality?

Simon James Photography

My advice on price...

1st Pick your photographer on the person, do you connect with them, are they your kind of person

2nd Do you love their style, presenation and quality of work

3rd Are they in your budget.

Long after the bills have been paid your photos are your memories.

Hope this helps.


Is it worth it having a photographer or should I just rely on friends to take the photos?

in the interest of saving $$

Simon James Photography

If photography is important to you, you will spend more money on it.  But I will also say that after all the celebrating is over your photos are what will help you to bring all the memories flooding back from your magical wedding day and all the details that went into the day...

does every photographer offer budoir shoots? or just specific ones?

Simon James Photography

Some studios may specialize in the type of imagery that you are looking for.

I've been photographing weddings/portraits for 25 yrs.  Over that time my wedding clients have become my portrait clients have become more like friends as I've watched their families grow.  I've also photographed their corperate headshots and most of thier photography needs.

I guess my advice is, find someone that you really connect with then you have a photographer for LIFE!

Best of luck.
