6. James Day Weddings

  • Service Area: Southern Highlands, Sydney

James Day is one of my favourite wedding photographers. I find his work incredibly moving and love the artistic flair he brings when he steps aside from purely candid photography for a moment and works with couples to create some of his extra trademark magic.

I love that I have few words to describe the photography of James Day. You never know what the next magic picture is going to be. But amongst the evolving surprises of his hefty portfolio is a constant - intensely emotive images that capture the something that is shared between people.

His extraordinary collection of emotive wedding photos are perhaps in part, an illustration of James's gentle way with people.
