Before I got into photography, I would see a tree full of fall colors, drive by a beautiful hill of flowers, look at snow covered mountains, see someone’s face with unique character, and pay close attention to those details. Since 2006, I’ve been behind the camera. My first experiences back then as a wedding photographer second shooter provided a fast track to understanding a camera. I learned how to shoot during the day of the wedding in the moment. Action packed, swift moving, low light, natural light, outdoors, indoors…This is my comfort zone.
Over the last 10 years I’ve discovered this is what it means to find a purpose in your work. I believe in the most common reason most of us are interested in photography…family. Documenting the moments of our children’s lives, milestones, and the amazing range of love and emotion we experience in these moments. It cannot be said enough how profound this is as a professional photographer.
In 2002, I married the love of my life. We’ve spent 15 beautiful years together and have 2 children. Our lives are incredibly blessed because my wife and I live by example to follow your core values as well as your heart. Her support and the love of my two children keep me moving forward as this business expands. Born and raised on the Northshore of Boston MA. My business stretches all over New England. I travel to you no matter where you are in the world.
My approach with clients is unique because I spent the last 20 years in business to business relationship management in the corporate world. I’ve built large accounts and teams with awarded results. After so many years of striving for customer excellence with integrity and teamwork, there isn’t anything I couldn’t offer to you to ensure your satisfaction. Whatever it takes to earn your confidence while working with me. Not to mention, we will have a great time! I’m the guy climbing on the rooftop to “get the shot”. My energy is unlimited and so are my ideas. Characteristically, my sessions are very creative as well as collaborative.

Jim Barbere is a great photographer!!! He had the challenge of getting all three of my young children to cooperate for photos and he nailed it! Jim was fun and easy going with the kids and got every shot I had hoped for! I will be going back for more family shots in the future!

Jim was great. Wanted something a little different and Jim delivered. He took time to talk to us and incorporate our interests in the photos. My husband says he is worth every penny. Couldn't agree more! Jim traveled to three different locations including tromping through the woods to get a wonderful set of memories.

Jim was phenomenal. My fiancé booked him for a surprise proposal shoot and he was the perfect person for the job. He was fun to be around the whole time and the pictures turned out incredible. I would definitely recommend booking Jim if you are looking for a fun, talented guy to document a special day!

Headshots: What a great experience!
I, HATE, HATE, HATE having my picture taken....I have a toothy smile, my hair is always doing the wrong thing and between my skin tone and my onset of wrinkles, .....well, did I mention I hate having my photo taken? Jim put me at ease, made me laugh, put on some music to aid in the comfort, Jim brought out the inner smile that looks good on me....that doesn't ever show in a "selfie".
It really is priceless to get a photo of your true smile......Just priceless!

Thank you Jim Barbere for the amazing photos!! We had the pleasure of working with Jim recently for our small business, we were blow away with the quality of the work and how incredibly easy it was to work with Jim. We did an early morning shoot at our bakery and cafe and he was able to adapt quickly to our hectic schedule. The end result was amazing photos that we can use to help promote our business. We would definitely recommend and use again in the future!!

My husband and I had a wonderful experience with Jim Barbere Photography. We started with a winter photo shoot in snow - we had such a great time. Jim is very creative and willing to take as many pictures as needed. He also just photographed our wedding and we can't wait to see the pictures! We highly recommend him to anyone interested in an accommodative, friendly, and very talented photographer.

My husband Aaron and I found Jim on Thumbtack while looking for photographers for our wedding. Aaron and I had already spent hours over the past weekends looking at photographer websites. We weren't excited about any of them until we stumbled upon Jim. It was the first time we were both enthusiastic about any of the photographers we had found online. We immediately decided to contact Jim. He gave us a great quote for the wedding photography, and it included a special engagement shoot to get to know each other and get some shots taken before the big day. Jim was so flexible in helping us find a place to hold the engagement shoot. We ultimately decided to meet in Portsmouth for a sunset brewery tour and photo shoot. It was amazing! We had such a great time at the shoot, and Jim was so personable. He made what many would consider a stressful occasion such a fun experience. He did a great job at balancing the brewery stops with getting the important shots taken. After the engagement shoot, we were even more confident that we had chosen the right guy for the job. And even more so when he sent the edited photos only a week or so after the shoot. Fast forward to the week of the wedding. Jim was extremely proactive in making sure everything was set for the big day. We were so excited when he told us that he would have a second shooter helping him at the wedding. At the wedding, Jim made sure we captured all of the moments that we hoped for, and so many special moments that we never would have thought of ourselves. He made sure to send us a sampling of the night while we were on our honeymoon, and then delivered the complete set of photos only a few weeks later. It is an understatement to say how happy we were with the photos!! Finally, Jim's website is very convenient to use, and we are able to access and download our photos anytime, in single and bulk downloads. The images are high quality, high resolution jpegs that are large enough that you don't have to worry about pixelation when printing large photos for your friends and family. I can't think of anything else to add except that Jim is amazing and he will take great care in documenting your special day!

I had just had my baby girl when I reached out to Jim to have him do her newborn photos, as well as update our family photos to include our newest addition. It was December and as busy as everyone was with the holidays, Jim responded quickly to my inquiry and up until our session with the utmost attention. His assessment of what I saw as my vision was thorough and on point in his delivery. He arrived on time, and most importantly did not rush the session. I have three year old twins (and a dog) and he was extremely patient with them, and worked with their attention spans well. My husband and I are impressed and cannot say enough about the quality of the photos. I also love the idea of paying for the digital images and being able to do what I want with them, and he didn't pressure us to buy frames and print packages like the chain photography stores we have been to in the past. Jim is a true artist and a pleasure to work with! We have found our family photographer for here on out, and are already planning to have him photograph the Christening.

AMAZING! Jim was great to to work with right from the start! We did our engagement photos with him last year and they came out great. He made it fun and comfortable for us. In preparation for our big day, Jim took the time to walk through the whole day with us, and go over every detail which was great! We knew we knew we were in good hands with Jim. On our wedding day, Jim seriously blew us away! We had so much fun taking pictures around downtown Portsmouth, NH with our wedding party. Our family and friends are still talking about how great he was! I HIGHLY recommend Jim for an engagement and wedding photographer. He also works great with kids and will be calling him when it is time for us to grow our family! Thanks Jim!

There really isn't a bad thing that can be said about Jim! Aside from his super friendly personality and his attention to detail, he makes every experience fun and relaxing, which is HUGELY important during wedding planning and the actual wedding day! After our first meeting with Jim over cocktails and many platters of oysters (many platters...like 3 hours later platters) we knew he was going to be our wedding photographer. He has a confident yet approachable and down-to-earth demeanor and his work just speaks for itself. After our engagement session with him we felt like we really became friends, and couldn't wait for him to shoot our big day. As we predicted, he was personable, timely, professional, funny, creative, and easygoing. Our friends and family loved Jim as much as we do and we honestly can't imagine anyone else taking our photos that day. We couldn't recommend him highly enough for any photography needs, especially wedding photography. Thank you Jim for making the entire process magical!!!

Jim was extremely enthusiastic but at the same time very patient. When we arrived at the location Jim was prepared and ready to take our pictures. He came with excellent pose ideas. His location suggestion was spot on. We received our pictures in a timely manner and he was very responsive to messages.
We will Absolutely use Jim again
We highly recommend

Coming to Salem, MA is a yearly tradition for my fiancé and I. It holds a special place in our hearts so naturally we wanted to have our engagement Photoshoot there. Hiring Jim was one of the best decisions we have ever made. He was right on time and spent quality time on making this day a memorable one. His caring nature made us comfortable in front of the camera and off camera. The photos will be ones that will be cherished long after we are gone and we are both extremely grateful for Jim. Thank you a million times over! 💕

Jim is absolutely amazing to work with! He did our engagement photo shoot and our wedding which was exactly one week ago! The pictures are incredible. He makes everyone feel so warm and welcomed. There is no awkwardness, just laughs and lots of fun with Jim around! I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to have some fun while taking amazing quality pictures. I will never go to anyone else for my photography needs. He is such a great guy and really cares about his work! We can’t wait to work with him again in the future!!

Jim was an amazing photographer for our engagement photos. We went in just winging it and they came out beyond amazing. He made us very comfortable, my fiancé is not a picture type guy but he had said Jim made him feel comfortable and relaxed. We had so much fun and some good laughs! Let’s do it again!! I can’t wait for the wedding photos!!!

Jim worked with my wife and I throughout our engagement and wedding. He is a skilled photographer with zero awkwardness. He wants to meet up several times to get to know the people he is working with. During his work sessions he treats the women how they should be , and is “one of the guys” when with the boys. My wife and I have decided that any photography we want done , will be done nowhere else other than Jim. Don’t settle for less , you’ll end up with great photos and a friend after everything’s said and done.
