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 a unique style, then you have come to the right place; Devine Photography. James Devine is a wedding photographer with over 10 years experience. Since the beginning James has 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. Then as the bride and grooms leaves the reception its the realisation of how quickly the wedding day went by.


Visual Story Telling

Our job is simple; to tell the story of your wedding day in our own special way. From the first knot of the bow tie to when that bouquet makes it flight to the next bride, wedding photographers will be there to find that fleeting moment. In addition we will also capture that brief glance and that tearful embrace to that wild dance move. Devine Photography will capture those small moments in time within the sea of moments of the day. Wedding photographers are visual narrators for couples as they begin their journey in married life.

A little bit about James Devine:

As a child I remember the first time I picked up a National Geographic magazine, I remember being in awe of the spectacular imagery before me on the glossy pages. From those early moments imagery would become a central interest of mine. During my years in high school I excelled in visual media, from high school art classes to technical design drawings and early 3D renders. In addition to this I learned the basics of photography using dark room development & 35mm film early on in high school. After high school as I entered my adult years I picked up my first digital camera teaching myself the principles of photography.

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 then posting to Myspace and Facebook the following day for the masses that would head into Adelaide to party. This time photography was no longer just a hobby for me, it was becoming my new career. During those early years of photography I developed my skills. Of course much of the time on the job and learning new techniques and aquiring new skills on the way. So 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: Of course with every wedding the number of photos is going to vary. For example one wedding may end up with 300 final photos compared to another where there are 700 final shots. With this in mind, how much you have planned for your wedding day will have an influence of the amount photos make the final cut.

Although the number of images may seem important at first, over time there will always be a few classic images that will stand out. It’s important to remember 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 early and as convenient for you. For example a typical time frame for booking a wedding photographer can be anywhere between 9 to 18 months ahead. Of course as with booking anything wedding related it is a first come first serve basis.
