Adelaide Wedding Photographer: James Devine.

Hi there! I’m James Devine an Adelaide based wedding photographer. As your wedding photographer, I’ll be capturing one of the most important moments in your life…Your wedding day. Being a wedding photographer is more than just capturing an image. With experience at over a hundred and fifty weddings and counting, I know a thing or two about how your wedding day will flow. I can guide you through the motions of the day. From when the Groom makes his first loop in the tie to when the bride’s shoe lifts off the ground into the car at the end of the night. I’ll be there.


Visual Story Telling

The story of your wedding day is always unique. No two weddings are ever the same, and this is why I love what I do. I get to tell your story through images. Images that say something where words cannot.  From those small tears, the groom sheds to that epic dance move my photos are there to provoke emotions & memories long after the wedding day has passed.

A team quietly working in the background

Wedding photography is only one small part of the machine that makes your wedding day work. In the background, waiters, florists, venue managers, designers, DJ’s and many others are all working towards your special day. I have compiled a list of vendors for anyone looking for inspiration for their wedding day. Click here to see some of my recommended vendors.


Wedding Albums & Books

I’m proud to offer books made by Queensberry in addition to my standard albums and prints. Queensberry books are one of the world’s finest album makers in the world, supplying heirlooms that will last a lifetime and beyond. Also with a range of Cover options and page styles, there is something for every taste and style.

Backorders and return clients are welcome. Also samples available for viewing and prices available upon request.



In House Printing

For your wedding day photo’s don’t just settle for any commercial photo lab. Why not Print In-house directly from your photographer? Using Adobe compliant monitors I can ensure that the color accuracy of a print is as close to its intended colors as possible. Deciding to print in-house you are ensuring optimal image quality in its final print. Pricing for in house printing will be made available soon for prints up to A3.

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 on 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 lifetime.

Q: How long before I receive my photos?

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.
