ADELAIDE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER: JAMES DEVINE

Adelaide Wedding Photographer: James Devine.

If you are looking for a wedding photographer that can capture the most important moments of your wedding day in their unique style, then you have come to the right place; Devine Photography. I’m James Devine and I’m a wedding photographer of 10 years. Over the years I’ve seen wedding trends come and go as quickly as the seasons change. But there are two things that I see that are constant and never changing. The first is seeing a Bride & Groom’s face light up when they see each other for the first time on their wedding day. The second is the bride and grooms realisation of how quick a wedding day can go by.

 


 

Visual Story Telling

As your wedding photographer it is my job to tell the story of your wedding day as it is. From when the first bow tie is tied to when the bouquet makes it flight to the next potential bride. I’ll be there to find that fleeting moment; to capture that glance and photograph that embrace. We capture moments in time within a sea of moments on a day that goes by faster than we can remember. Wedding Photographers help cement those memories in a way that is meaningful for their clients. You could say as wedding photographers we become visual narrators for couples as they begin their journey in married life.

A little bit about James Devine:

Since the first time I picked up a Nat Geo magazine as a child, the camera and final image is something that has always captivated me. In high school I learn’t the basic of photography using dark room development & 35mm film. Then in 2002 I picked up my first digital camera teaching myself along the way. When I picked up my first digital camera, I knew straight away this would change the game of photography forever.

The Big Break

In 2008 with social media on the rise, my big break in photography came in Adelaide. I began covering Adelaide nightclub venues and then posting to Myspace and Facebook the following day for the masses of people that would head into Adelaide to party. This time photography was no longer just a hobby for me, it was becoming my new career. As fun and enjoyable those early days were my creativity was craving for something more. In 2010 I had my first experience as a Wedding photographer working under guidance of seasoned pro. From there I further developed my skills to become one of Adelaide’s leading wedding photographers.

Wedding Photographer FAQ’s

Q: How Many Photos do I take?

A: Every wedding is different and this can impact the number of photos I will take. For any given wedding I can supply anywhere from 300 to 700 or more edited images per wedding. Depending on how much you have planned for your wedding day e.g ‘First Look’ or traditional pre wedding customs, fireworks etc it may mean more images.

Although the number of images may seem important at first, over time there will always be a few classic images that will stand out. These are the photos that will be in your album for years to come, that will be mounted on a wall in your home or will be sitting on your bedside table. The most important thing a wedding photographer can do is produce an image for a client that will last a life time.

Q: How long before I receive my photo’s?

A: In a typical wedding season it can be anywhere from 6 to 8 weeks. Which is more than enough time to enjoy your honeymoon.

Q: What is your wedding photography style?

A: For the most part photo-journalistic with some fine art and traditional wedding photography techniques.

Q: How far in advance should I book you as my wedding photographer?

A: As earlier as convenient & practical for you. A standard time frame for booking a wedding photographer can be anywhere between 9 to 18 months ahead. As with booking anything wedding related it is a first come first serve basis.
