We asked James from James White Photography five questions in five minutes:
What is the most important piece of advice you can give to engaged couples?
Get to know your photographer and videographer. They are going to be by your side, and in your personal space all day. They will be around your family and friends, so you want to make sure you feel comfortable with them, otherwise, it could get awkward and uncomfortable. It is as simple as sitting down for a coffee, or even a beer (or three). If someone tells you they don’t have time to meet with you, or grab a quick coffee…they probably aren’t the right photographer for you.
Tell us about a hidden talent you have?
Dancing! I mean, I am terrible, but in the sense that it makes people laugh hysterically, and brings people out of their shells. Almost like, “man that guy is such a fool, I can’t possibly be that bad, so let’s dance!” kind of thing. I do it deliberately, it gets the dancefloor going and gets me better shots. Plus…I like dancing haha!
As a vendor, what excites you about the wedding day?
For me, it is the celebration of love. I go out of my way to really get to know my couples, so when I arrive on the day, I am treated more like a guest, like a friend. As a result, I genuinely am so pumped for them on their big day, and it hits me in the feels big time. I get so pumped for the father daughter dance too, don’t know why, but that one almost tugs at the old heart strings!
What are you known for?
Being funny, weird and a bit eccentric. If you spend 5 minutes with me you will understand, but trust me, it’s a good thing!
If you could choose a song to play for the rest of your life what would it be?
Don’t hate me, or laugh at me, but it would be ‘Whitney Houston – I will Always Love You’. My 2 best men entered the reception at my wedding to this song. One was carrying the other as the big drop hit at the end of the song and they did a little spin and twirl in the middle of the reception…people cried in laughter. It was perfect!
