James Tracey Photography | Wedding Photographer

In a Nutshell

James has travelled all over the world shooting weddings for clients. He covers the day from preparation through to the dancing as it happens, carefully documenting the day as it really happens, and quietly working in the background to capture the laughter, tears, high fives and hugs as they happen.

In James’s words: “Weddings are brilliant. All your friends and family together to share one of the best days of your life. I work hard to shoot the I don’t want to set up photos or take hours of group photos, for me, shooting a wedding is all about photographing the day as it really happens. We sneak off to take some couple’s photos as you enjoy each others company. That’s it, nothing staged, boring or traditional, just a modern documentary approach.“I want to tell your wedding story as it happens and interfere as little as possible so you can have the most amazing day possible with the most important people in your life.”

Why do you want to work with us?
I’ve shot a number of same sex couples and have loved every single wedding. All weddings are awesome so I want to work with as many couples as possible!

What is your approach to weddings?
I shoot the day as it happens with no direction. We sneak off for 20 minutes of couple photos but the day is all about the couple and their family and friends. At the end, I go away, go through the images I’ve captured and later present you with over 400 high resolution images on your own USB, so you get your images to print, share and upload after the day.

What do you love about what you do?
Hanging out with lovely couples on the best day of their life and being trusted to capture the most important moments of their day.

I have photographed weddings in city centres, stately homes, castles, hotels, pubs and homes. I’ve also been lucky enough to have photographed weddings internationally in Italy, Ibiza, Thailand and New York City. I am based in Manchester and my standard fees cover weddings within 50 miles of Manchester; for international weddings, I require flights and accommodation for 2 – 3 nights.
