JLM Wedding Photography

Beautiful, Natural Photos (and Videos) Of Things That Really Happened

Wedding Photographer Based in Sheffield

Hi, I’m James.  I am based in Sheffield and I provide wedding photo and video coverage all over the UK.

People often describe me as the wedding photographer for people who don’t like having their photo taken.

Just like most of the couples I photograph, I don’t particularly like having my photo taken.  I feel uncomfortable and end up putting on a weird fake smile.

Wedding photos should be real smiles and genuine happiness, so I take the time to let people be themselves, and that really shows in the photos.  

Everyone is happy, relaxed and genuinely enjoying their time in front of the camera.

To be honest, for the majority of your wedding day you won’t even know I’m around.   

No posing, no fake smiles, no pressure.

Me and my wife had James to do our wedding photography and video. The pictures and video say it all, they are brilliant and everyone who's seen them have said the same. We are over the moon and couldn't recommend James enough. Really nice guy and couldn't do enough for us. He really made us feel at ease and made us feel like we've known him for years.

Your Wedding Photos & Video Sorted!

Whilst I’m at your wedding taking photos I will also be recording short video clips throughout the day, which can be edited into a highlights film and set to music.

Because I do both on my own it means you don’t need an additional videography team to get a highlights video of your wedding day.

And of course since I’m just one person, you’ll barely even notice I’m around capturing your day.


Highlight videos look like this:

James at JLM Wedding Photography has been the one person we could fully rely on during the planning of our wedding, the engagement shoot, the wedding day itself and after the wedding. James always put us at the centre of his thoughts when he communicated with us. James is so professional and produced the most amazing photographs and videos.

Keeping Your Wedding Photography Simple

The only decision you need to make right now is whether you want me to photograph your wedding.

If you say yes then you’ll get hundreds of beautiful, natural photos of you and your guests enjoying your wedding day.

I like to keep things as simple as possible because I know how stressful it is to plan your own wedding. 

The last thing I want is to add more pressure by forcing you to decide upfront whether you’ll want albums, prints, video coverage and all those other things.

When you do book you’ll pick your options, and you’ll be free to update your options at any point up until 3 weeks prior to your wedding day.

As Featured In...

All of these amazing publications have featured my wedding photos at least once.

James is a lovely polite gentleman, who literally seems like part of your family on the day. He knows how to make you smile to get the very best photos. The quality of his photos are fantastic and so clear. Just like your reliving the moment all over again. I would recommend JLM Wedding Photography to anyone and if we did it again he’s definitely going to be there

A Little About Me

So like I said, my name is James and I am based in Sheffield, South Yorkshire.

I like to travel around, wherever the weddings take me, and have been fortunate to have photographed weddings in some truly amazing places.

Photographing people has been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember, just ask my wife and kids.

I have always preferred taking candid photos, the real moments.

Studios and styled shoots don’t float my boat.

Weddings are full of joy, tears, laughter, drunk dancing, falling over.

All amazing moments that flash by in an instant.

Those are the moments I look out for, and that’s why I love photographing weddings.

If you want to know why I prefer to stay behind the camera, watch my intro video.

James is an amazing photographer, we realised this after having our engagement shoot photos sent through!

This confirmed how we felt and made us so much more excited to take him to Italy with us for our wedding in May.

The professionalism was on point but yet James became one of our friends on the trip! Everyone felt comfortable with him around and the pictures are just amazing!!

Would recommend him to anyone! I want to show our pictures off to the world and that's all down to James! Thank you! Xx

James genuinely cares about providing and delivering the best service to ensure your big day is captured and one to remember.

He's so impressive with his duty of care and all the time he offers in the build up to the wedding, during the day and even after the event providing amazing value for money.

He's very reliable, creative, dynamic, organised, fun and a really nice person with great energy we are so happy we had him at our wedding.

Everyone else after payment disappeared but James has continued a month later sending emails related to the day, offers for other guests and amazing added features his service is second to none!!

James recently photographed our wedding and not only were the results fantastic, but he was great to work with.

James is unassuming and his documentary style means he captures great shots without being at all intrusive or in your face.

If you’re looking for a nice guy who takes good photos then he’s your man.

He had all the essentials the bridal party needed too when we were getting ready.

There is absolutely nothing even remotely negative I can say about James and the work he produces.

We had the pleasure of spending 2 days with him for our wedding and also had an 'engagement shoot' prior and we couldn't have felt more comfortable or at ease with him.

Everyone at the wedding praised him, and he's just a genuinely lovely guy.

You hear a lot when booking wedding photography that 'you get what you pay for', but with James you get so much more.

Hopefully, we'll see James again in the future!

My wife and I chose JLM photography for our wedding and we could not be happier with the results. We felt at ease with James, he’s a genuine guy who loves photography.

James answered all our questions and made us feel at ease with the whole process, his professionalism made the whole wedding planning easier.

The photos we received from James are amazing, his style is natural and we loved it. He took any photo we asked for, it felt very normal that he was there taking the photos, he fitted right in with the day. We received some sneak peak photos within 24 hours which was amazing, we then received all the photos within 2 weeks!

We could not recommend James more, we definitely will be recommending him to our friends!
