Your Investment for a lifetime

Your images from your wedding photographer are a long term investment. While wedding photography may seem expensive, it is one of the most valuable tangible investments that will last long after the final reception exit, from your first kiss as a husband and wife to the moment where that relative busts a fantastic dance move. Your wedding photos are the window to that one unforgettable day in your life when you said ‘I do’.


Meet with your wedding photographer

Meeting with your wedding photographer over a hot cup or mug is a great way to know who you’re booking. Wedding photographers can spend over 8 hours in contact with the couple and bridal party on the wedding day, so it pays to have someone you and your partner bond well with. Before your meeting, be prepared to ask questions and look at physical samples beyond the phone and computer screen.

A truly experienced wedding photographer will be able to give you a guide on what your wedding day may look like and can provide ideas on how your wedding may run. Whether your wedding is big, small, massive, or micro, your photographer will be able to provide guidance and advice in helping you achieve the perfect wedding day.

For meetings in Adelaide, face to face is preferred but can also be scheduled over the phone or via Zoom. Meeting via Zoom or phone call for couples living outside of Adelaide is recommended.

Sharon & Tom

James was the wedding photographer on our day, and we couldn’t have been happier! He was so friendly and professional. James has a natural wedding photography that was amazing. He even managed to give us all our photos before our overseas trip (where we wanted to show the pictures to our family members), And he gave us a nice little album with some of the best images. If you book James to capture your wedding, you won’t be disappointed!

Bec & Sean

When planning my special day, I knew I needed a great wedding photographer to capture the day. I remembered James’s work many years ago and followed his Facebook page. Since then, he has developed a fantastic eye. James is truly an artist that also takes pride in capturing every shot. When the previews were released, I could not wait to see all the photos from our special day. Thank you, James, for your time and your exceptional talent. And, of course, making the awkward feel comfortable with your natural wedding photography style. You’re a fantastic photographer!

About James Devine: Adelaide Wedding Photographer


James’s journey to becoming a wedding photographer can be traced back to his roots as a Building draftsperson in the early 2000s. Recognising that Architecture was not his calling, James discovered photography as a hobby which eventually became a passion. Then in late 2008, James found his first break as a photographer covering social events and nightlife in Adelaide’s CBD. Finally, James would find his calling as a Wedding photographer in 2010.

Besides being a wedding photographer, James is a passionate creative with a nerdy obsession with Camera’s, Adventure, Technology and Aviation. James is also a proud dad of two and an excellent home chef.

Engagement Sessions

A wedding day for many couples is their first experience working extensively with a professional photographer. Up until your wedding day, most interactions you’ve had with a Professional Photographer have most likely been during school portraits or the odd family shoot. Also, for the most part, the time in front of a camera is usually in front of our smartphones.

Suppose you’re the type of person that feels nervous or shy in front of the camera. Then an engagement session with your wedding photographer is highly recommended. While it may seem daunting at first, an engagement session is a great way to break the ice in front of the camera and see what works best for you. Your wedding photographer can guide you on posing and how to relax in front of the camera.

Another factor to consider is that you are dressed in your best on the wedding day. What you wear, how you feel, and the company you have on your wedding day can all positively impact how you approach being in front of the camera on your wedding day.

For most couples, an hour in front of the camera is all it takes to feel at ease and is an excellent opportunity to share some great images with your family and friends before the big day.
