My husaband and I had the pleasure of getting to know Jim before our wedding and we could not be happier we chose him to be our photographer. He is the consummate professional, but has a silly side! We cannot express how unbelievable he was to work with, from start to finish. He... Read More went above and beyond our expectations.

Having used James in the past for family photographs and I had no hesitation in him taking our wedding photos.

Read More on the day James and his team really pulled out all the stops make sure we had the best photographs possible. James sense of humor and friendly approach put everyone at ease and we all had such a lot of fun throughout the whole day.

After getting engaged in November 13 we set about planning our wedding and with a venue we liked available on July 9 things started to coming together pretty quickly. Stumbling across some reviews on The Knot, my now hubby came across Jim. All the reviews were very positive of... Read More both Jim and his team and after checking out his website we made contact and were delighted that he was able to fit us in. Neither of us are particularly natural in front of the camera but the engagement shoot was a great opportunity to become a bit more relaxed about everything and to understand how it would all come together on the big day, which made things much smoother in the end. On the day Jim blended into the background capturing all the important parts of the day in a very un-intrusive way which gave us a lot of great, natural, photos that really reflect the moments of the day. Simply put Jim was great and his style of photographing is awesome. We couldn't be happier with our wedding album and would highly recommend him in the future. Thanks Jim!.

Jim has a wonderful eye for taking pictures of things that could never have thought of - when we received our pictures - we loved all the little details - from the program tucked into the back of a chair cover to our rings on a local newspaper showing the date. So neat! He captured many moments that I didn't even know happened and provided documentation of a wonderful day that we can revisit again and again! Many thanks to Jim and Abby for taking the stiffness out of formal photos!" Update: I wrote this review in November 2014 after our wedding on February 15, 2014, but for some reason the wedding date is showing 2015 and I cant figure out how to change it :-)

Bride Happy = Father Happy

Reviewed on 10/27/2014

This review is a little different than most on this site - I am the father of the bride and from my perspective, I cannot say enough good things about James DeCamp. Honestly everything for my daughters wedding was pretty much nothing but $$$$ to me - EVERYTHING was more... Read More expensive than than I had ever imagined, but as an ad rep with a great deal of knowledge in the photography field I knew that I wouldn't want to skimp when it came to giving my daughter the best photographer to capture images of her wedding day. While I was familiar with James's outstanding work in the editorial and commercial photography realm, I did not know that he was in the wedding photography business and was pleasantly surprised that after an extensive search my daughter had his name in a short list of five Columbus photographers. My daughter, son-in-law-to-be, wife and I interviewed all five (we actually called it 'The Grilling') and had one photographer literally dripping sweat at the end, but James came off the barbecue completely unscathed and we where hooked. James contacted us several times before the wedding day, giving us wonderful advice and ideas to be able to carve out time for great photos and full of ideas for extra locations to go to to get some of the more demanding photos that my daughter wanted to get. The day of the wedding went off without a hitch, in many way because of James' cool demeanor dispute a few last minute changes, and he easily adapted to the changing weather of the day that had turned nasty at the last minute with the power going out for a short time during the reception. The photos from the wedding where delivered right on time 6 weeks after the wedding and were absolutely amazing. Watching my wife and daughter cry with joy while looking through them made James worth every penny I had paid. James was definitely not the cheapest photographer we had looked at, but there is no question that he was the best. I would hire him again in an instant and would highly recommend him to anyone in need of any kind of photography.
