About Jim

Photo by Amy Dale

Hi, I’m Jim! I fell in love with photography through watching motion pictures. I grew obsessed with beautiful light and wanted to light films for a living. Well, my ambitions changed when a friend asked me to capture their vow renewal and I realized how important it is to capture the relationships between people – heirlooms that can be cherished indefinitely. I’ve now shot about 200 weddings and my enjoyment grows exponentially.

My goal as a photographer is to make your day a truly great one. From a laid back, mostly hands-off candid space I am able to capture meaningful images and the greatest moments you’ll treasure forever – with you, as well as your best friends and family. Nothing brings me greater joy than nailing that moment with your grandmother or with your best friend laughing your hearts out, and giving you a photographic reminder of that relationship. Some pictures you’ll look at, laugh, cry, and then ask, “Where was I when THAT happened?!” But it’s OK if you missed it, because Jim captured it all for you!

I’ve photographed weddings and sessions across the United States and internationally. I’m based in eastern Pennsylvania, which makes for a very convenient drive to the Philadelphia area, NEPA, New Jersey, New York, Delaware, Maryland, and Washington DC.  I’m available to photograph around the world and greet travel with enthusiasm.
