AMAZING!!!!! James went above and beyond to make sure our August wedding was captured beautifully. He was extremely professional by always being punctual, responsive and patient. My husband and I were blown away by his creativity and the brilliant way he captured our special day. My wedding album is gorgeous. The quality and resolution of our photographs is stunning. James was able to capture moments that we'll get to cherish and for that we are eternally grateful.

I highly recommend his services. You will not be disappointed.

...extremely professional

AMAZING! I was a bit awkward taking photos at first and they made me feel as comfortable as possible and even showed me some of the pictures to make sure I knew they were turning out great! They were extremely professional while still being light-hearted and fun! They also considered all of the wonderful shots while still allowing us to enjoy every moment of our wedding. Some of the shots they took were so unique to the location we were getting married and shots that I don't think just any photographer would have thought of. They were very flexible and worked well with a schedule that didn't quite go as planned. They let us see some of the shots and they were absolutely stunning!!! I would highly recommend JBlake Photography as photographers. They let us enjoy every bit of our wedding while still capturing everyone wonderful moment so we have plenty of memories to look back on.

...timely, high quality

JBlake Photography services are top notch. Our company, RUYA Enterprises LLC (the proud manufacturer of RUYA Essentials) , needed professional photos of our luxury skin care and body care products. They were timely, high quality, and most importantly James was a pleasure to work with. We will use this company for all of our product photography needs. We highly recommend them.
-RUYA Essentials look awesome

James is an awesome photographer, with a passion for his craft! I contacted James because I needed professional photos with a quick turnaround time, James accommodated my request, chose an awesome shooting location, was absolutely professional and kind! My photos look awesome on my website and I will certainly be connecting with James again!

...attentive, creative, and patient

James provided the photography for my wedding this June.  He was a consummate professional and exceeded my expectations.  James was attentive, creative and patient while my 18-member bridal party and I took our groups shots.  James was also thoughtful enough to offer us an additional photographer for our special day to make sure that no moment went uncaptured. James did a phenomenal job with our engagement photographs at the Capitol so I cannot wait to share the many moments he captured on our wedding day.  I would enthusiastically recommend James for your next special event
