About Me and FAQ

  Hello, I'm James, a photographer based in Devon, delivering bespoke wedding, commercial, portrait photography to clients throughout the South West of England. My wedding photography service is based around your needs, although I've created some packages to give you an idea to get you started. We will work together to get you the images and albums that will be treasured for generations. Have a look at my portfolio pages to see examples of my wedding photography, commercial photography, school and Nursery Photography Services.

FAQ – Frequently asked questions.

What style of photography do you supply?

I love documentary or reportage photography, and I will approach your wedding in that way. But when I take your portraits, I will give you some direction to help with poses that are the most flattering, and bring you into the best light. So, I blend styles to get the best from all styles of photography. After all, I’m here to make you look good. Contact me to have a look at further examples and my wedding albums.

Do you do groups shots?

Yes, I tend to keep to a maximum of five or six as I don’t want to take up too much time for your guests, allowing them to get back to enjoying your day.

Do you shoot colour, black and white, or a mixture of both?

Everything is shot in colour and then I adjust them in post production to black and white. You’ll receive a mixture of both in your finished images.

Do you bring an assistant or second photographer?

Usually No, as I work quicker on my own. By the time I’ve explained where I want the dress placed or flashes moved to, I could have done it myself. Don’t get me wrong, I’d love someone to carry my bags or help with the photography but I’d then have to increase prices to pay for the extra help. Having said that, a second photographer for large weddings can be made available at extra cost if you feel you need one. But talk to me about your requirements and I can help advise.

Do you correct your photos?

Yes. Nothing has changed since the days of film, professional photographers have always adjusted for correct colour temperature, and have adjusted colours. If there’s a temporary blemish on the skin then this will also be removed.

We live a long way from Devon and we are coming home to be married. How do we going about booking with you?

A lot of my clients live out of the area and either grew up here or want to get married in one of the many stunning wedding venues Devon has to offer. Most of my clients opt to book after looking through the website and perhaps calling for a chat.  However, if you would like to come along to meet me here in Newton Abbot, you can see further examples of my work and discuss your wedding further. If coming to meet me is not possible, please feel free to call or we can simply book the date for you with the completion of our booking form, which I can send to you upon request.

Are you the actual photographer who will be shooting on my wedding day?

Yes, it’s me. By the time we get to your wedding day, we’ll have a great working relationship and I wouldn’t trust your day to anybody else.

Last but not least “Why red chilli photography?”

I really should make up a cool story, but people remember strong foods and bold colours, so Red Chilli Photography was born. Do you what to ask me another question? Drop me an email.
