Hi, I'm James Soules
I'm a wedding photographer based in Kent who absolutely loves his job, in fact I feel I have the best job in the world. I am lucky enough to photograph weddings all over there country, I am always happy to travel to any location.
I have been a full time wedding photographer for a good number of years now and have photographed hundreds of weddings.
I feel incredibly lucky to be able to document peoples wedding day. You will be in safe hands, photography is my full time job and my passion. I love to capture real fun, happiness, laughter and emotion in my photographs.
Here are a few facts about me:
- I have a daughter born in 2016 who is my absolute world.
- When I am not photographing weddings I enjoy street photography.
- I enjoy hiking and climbing around the UK.
- I drink too much coffee.
- I brought my first camera shortly after summiting my first mountain many years ago. I wanted to be able to document what I could see, then I caught the photography bug.
This quote sums up photography to me:
"PHOTOGRAPHY FOR ME IS NOT LOOKING, IT’S FEELING. IF YOU CAN’T FEEL WHAT YOU’RE LOOKING AT, THEN YOU’RE NEVER GOING TO GET OTHERS TO FEEL ANYTHING WHEN THEY LOOK AT YOUR PICTURES."
— DON MCCULLIN
Pick me if you want memories of every detail of the day as it naturally unfolds...but you don’t want to see the photographer.
In fact, that’s how I prefer it. By keeping out of your way, I get to see all the best parts. The parts that make the day yours. The parts that you miss because you’ll be focusing on enjoying your day.
Some people call what I do documentary photography, and some people call it reportage photography. Both mean the same thing; natural photos that show your day through your guests’ eyes.
With the freedom to roam, I can help you remember your day from every angle. I’m there all day so I can catch every tear, every smirk and every chuckle because I’ll be right in the middle of the action. Over the years I’ve developed an expert eye for detail and lightning-quick reactions. So I won’t ask you to pause on your way through the cloud of confetti, but I will make sure I get the photo of that moment. Because it isn’t a practice run - it’s the real thing, and you should enjoy it in real-time.

James is vey professional - accommodating people’s requests for photos with no fuss. James happily took photos with such a positive attitude, and we are so glad we had him as our photographer."

"James was fantastic! Despite a last minute disaster with the reception, meaning all our guests had to pile into my mums home, we had a fantastic wedding day. James managed to capture the love in the room. The photos really reflect how everybody made the most of the situation, which reminds me how lucky we are to have such fantastic friends and family.
James was dynamic and discreet whilst battling through all the people squashed in my mums house and really captured the atmosphere. Thanks James"
-Steff & Martin
