About James

Creative Wedding Photography that’s all about the story, keeping things relaxed, fun & often not realising you’re being photographed

 Lancashire born wedding photographer – James Jebson is regarded as one of the leading creative photographers in the North of England.

“I focus on natural, story telling photography, keeping a low key profile while capturing those moments that others miss – all while injecting a creative edge. Nothing cheesy, no staring in to the distance – I’m all about you & your guests not knowing I’m around & then popping up to create something epic, should the mood & couple allow it.,

I’ve photographed weddings all over the UK & as well as across Europe and I’m extremely proud to be recommended by venues throughout Lancashire, Manchester, Cheshire & London.”

 Natural, Documentary & Creative Imagery..


Since earning his degree in Photography – James has built a reputation for capturing the true story of a couples day, with the added difference of  being able to include epic, creative images of the couple on their own. Using techniques instilled while completing his training at university, he has taken these principles and developed them further into his own unique style.


“It’s often said that your wedding photographs are one of the few true keepsakes from your big day and not only do they allow you to relive all the emotions & experiences, but in my opinion there should at least be a selection of images within the story that has that added edge & wow factor..” 

“What can I say about our experience with James… As a man who doesn’t like having his picture taken I never felt awkward or made to pose and I would whole heartedly recommend his services to any upcoming grooms who were worried about this part of the day. Thank you again for such a wonderful experience, for supporting us through our special day and most of all for capturing so many amazing memories for us both…”

Mr Andy Craig

Wedding Photography – the modern approach

James’ approach to a photographing a wedding day is less about posing and more about feeling relaxed, being super speedy while maximising the surrounding space all while using secret skills & lots of epic lighting.


“I learnt a lot of valuable lessons from when I got married and for me speed is key – not having time to over think things, generally having fun & getting you back to your guests in record time – all while capturing awesome photographs are what it’s all about..”

“We are absolutely blown away and both been in tears watching the slideshow, they are absolutely beautiful and we cannot thank you enough.”

Mrs Hannah Muldoon

What married couples say about James.. 


“After meeting lots of different wedding photographers we met James, who instantly made us feel at ease with his friendly manner (we were both v camera shy!).When we saw examples of his work it was clear that he was head and shoulders above anyone else we had met. It was the best decision we could have made and the results are incredible.

From our first meeting James was so helpful in not only planning the photography but he also gave really helpful advice about lots of other things that helped make our day perfect.

His relaxed and friendly manner ensured that he was really able to capture the emotions of everyone at the wedding. Everyone who has looked at the photos (and we’ve shown them to lots) have agreed that these are the best they have ever seen. The quality of presentation is also impeccable, and we have watched the DVD many times.

We would not hesitate to recommend James to all family, friends and others and would definitely use him for any future photography requirements. Outstanding !”

Mr Scott Gall

“James Jebson is an incredibly talented photographer – so much so that two of my friends booked him for their weddings after he did such a fantastic job capturing our special day.

James is more than just a photographer, he is a coordinator, problem solver, advice giver and, most importantly, a maker of beautiful memories. You are definitely in safe hands with this chap as your photographer and I would recommend James to anyone.

My husband and I will never forget what James did to make our day so special. Thank you again Mr Jebson!!”

Mrs Jennifer Thompson

“Even when you think you know how amazing someone is – they still surprise you!! 

James captured the heart of everything we hoped for and more on our wedding day. We have pictures that will last a lifetime and will tell a story too those not yet here 

We couldn’t have asked for a more personal, professional (yet) down to earth guy, who put not only us but our guests at ease. 

For anyone looking a photographer – wedding or otherwise James is your man. I can’t wait for the next reason we need pictures taking… I know who we’ll be calling! “

The Butterworths

“Cannot reccomend James highly enough. Both myself and Hannah were very nervous about having our picture taken and being the centre of attention, however James calmed our fears and made us feel absolutely amazing.

The best thing I can say about James is that he takes the time to get to know you as a couple and makes sure that he takes pictures that you will feel comfortable with and feel excited to receive. He is as professional as they come and is completely attentive to the needs of your day, blending into the background yet there when you need him.

We both felt that James was more than a photographer and were delighted with everything that he did. 

You meet James as a photographer and leave him as a friend – cracking bloke and if you haven’t yet decided on a wedding photographer then look no further.”

Mr Mike Summersall

“He is an artist and his pictures speak for themselves…a true gentleman with an EPIC talent and creativity that blew us away…Incredible photos ( like Vogue good!) but most importantly INCREDIBLE chap!!!

James’ pure love and passion for his work is wholly infectious. He adores every second of what he does and there’s nothing better than that when you are investing in someone to share and capture your incredibly special day with you.

He cares and his experience guides you seamlessly through the day and gives you those special quiet moments you need to pause and reflect, absorb and enjoy.

We loved getting to know James and he was just AWESOME all the way through our journey together. We want to do it all again with him right there with us..”

Mrs Emily Jowett
