James Simmons Photography

Writing Bio’s are my Kryptonite, because it’s usually where modesty takes a back seat while casually claiming prestige by name dropping sponsors, listing awards for shameless self promotion in an attempt to convince you that I’m qualified to be here. So instead;

On my first ever wedding, I was walking backwards shooting the couple coming down the aisle and tripped over the flower girl. The Flower girl was howling and I pretty much wanted to die at that moment. That was 8/9 years ago, I’ve stuck with it and learnt a few tricks since then… Still walk backwards a lot though.

Randomly for some reason I always seem to tear up in movies when I’m on a plane, it gets pretty awkward when I’m travelling by myself.

I’m pretty much allergic to rich blue skies, mowed green lawn and people looking at the camera smiling unnaturally.

I have an unhealthy obsession with chicken wings and craft beer but it’s a little bit fun.

I became a photographer so I could enjoy what I do, so the same goes for the experience with my couples. I’m all about the good times. Natural expression and interaction is what I like to explore and often gets me excited like a 5 year old on red cordial at a birthday party but mostly I’m chill. I dig the adventure, engagement and the connection you need to tell people’s story and am attracted to moody, dramatic lighting, and love to Break The Rules (of photography not in general, like I’m not a criminal, a grammar criminal maybe).
