About James White Photography

For the Wild Hearts

This is for the Wild Hearts! This is for those seeking something unique, something different.

My name’s Jimmy, and don’t worry, I’m going to tell you a bit about me shortly. But let’s get stuck into you, who you are, and what you want shall we?

Are you someone who is seeking something different and unique? You don’t want to do ‘the traditional’ thing? You want to celebrate your love in a way that truly matters to you, and not as some spectacle for the instagram and tik Tok algorithm? You’ve got your reasons, perhaps you want something more genuine and less of a ‘show’. Maybe you don’t feel the need to have heaps of people around to solidify your love to one another. Whatever it is, I’m here for it!

I specialise in elopements and intimate weddings which is a fancy way of saying I specialise in working with couples who prioritise themselves on their wedding day. They don’t make compromises for other people. They do exactly what they want to do, exactly how they want to do it. This is your day, let me help make it the day you’ve always dreamed of.

About James

My name is Jimmy. I started my business in 2017 as a wedding photographer, but over time have found I gravitated towards elopements and intimate weddings due to my passion for the intimacy and genuineness of the day. 

I am both a father and a husband, and these 2 girls are my everything. I absolutely love them, and if you book in with me, you will get to know them as I get to know you. 

As a result, every wedding I approach is with family in mind, to create lasting memories for you to hand down generation to generation.

Fun Facts

– I went to university for 12 years, and now I am a photographer. Money well spent.

– I played Football (soccer) in Europe in 2003

Approach to Elopements

I prioritize intimacy. I push my clients to be vulnerable, in whatever way that comes across. I don’t go out of my way to direct a shot, but I will direct a moment without you knowing, and then sit back and watch as the emotions come out naturally.

He is one of the best elopement photographers I have ever seen hands down!
“We met Jimmy awhile ago now and have always been obsessed with his work, we ended up getting him to travel out to New Zealand to shoot our elopement, and the results were slap you in the face amazing. He is one of the best elopement photographers I have ever seen hands down, the way he captures our energy, our story, our emotions is just breathtaking, to this day I’m blown away by the results… also not to mention, Jimmy is such good company, he made us feel so comfortable throughout the whole day, he made us laugh too many times to count, his personality is impeccable and from a business perspective, he is amazing at what he does.

Can’t thank you enough!!!!”
Thank you for making our elopement experience the most magical day ever!
“We are so thankful for James and the amazing elopement experience he helped create towards our love story. We flew from Canada to Australia, and he made it super easy and perfect on our big day. We also have a busy toddler – James captured the best pictures of our daughter and was so understanding and considerate. Not only was he our photographer and wedding planner, but he naturally became a friend. He is super helpful, professional, easy going, and of course, extremely talented! His eye for pictures is incredible. It was an added touch that he came down to Sydney to hang with us after our elopement, and have our daughters meet and have a play date. Thank you for being so awesome, we couldn’t be any happier with our photos. Thank you for making our elopement experience the most magical day ever….Highly recommend as your photographer, you will not regret!!!”
He is truly a wonderful person and an incredibly talented photographer!
“Jimmy flew out to Adelaide to capture our elopement. He was absolutely phenomenal, from the very beginning Jimmy was calm and made us feel at ease. He guided us through each step of the process from first contact to the final photos and he did so with kindness and just enough humour to make us feel comfortable. My husband and I had an absolute ball on the day. The cool thing was we didn’t know what he had planned. We gave him all the info we had of things we wanted and asked him to build our perfect day, but to keep it secret. Not only is he a great photographer, he might even be a better planner, I’m not sure what he’s best at. 

Fast forward to receiving the photos, we were absolutely blown away, Jimmy captured our personalities and love for each other perfectly, the photos and moments of the shoot day are memories I will treasure forever. Hats off to Jimmy, he is truly a wonderful person and an incredibly talented photographer.”
