So, a little bit about us! First, we're a husband and wife team. We love working weddings and we really enjoy working together. Our home base is the Pacific Northwest, and more specifically Seattle Washington! We've transplanted to King County from California's famous Humboldt County;
where we grew up and honed our photography skills. Although back then we were learning photography in a class setting, and on actual film. We've since evolved alongside the digital industry, refining our artistry as we go. Every wedding brings fun elements and challenges that keep things interesting and unique! It keeps our skills sharp and our portfolio diverse, just how we like it!
Giving our experience with film photography and digital, we use a variety of vintage and modern equipment to give all of our clients a natural yet modern edge for their shoot. Check out our website, www.jamesandmelissaphotography.com, (don't forget to hit up the blog!) and when you find yourself unable to restrain yourself any longer, head on over to our Book Now! section. We look forward to hearing from you!
Book these two for your wedding, in no way will you be disappointed! They go above and beyond in every way to make sure the pictures are what you've always imagined. The attention to detail and creativity is amazing, I couldnt be happier with my photos. More...

Amazing! Love their work. Super talented and really cares about clients. So passionate about what they do.
Excellent work and excellent to work with. Highly professional and organized. Got exactly what I asked for and much more! Their style is very candid, so much fun to work with. HIGHLY recommended for weddings, portraits, and just about anything else. I have used them for several photo shoots and have been to several weddings and seen them in action. They are amazing at what they do! More...
JM photography did an amazing job ... They beyond exceeded my expectations. Choosing a photographer can be difficult with so many options however look no further!

You will not regret choosing JM for any photos family, sr portraits, or wedding thank you so much for being so amazing and talented! you help maintain memories and your photos are worth a 1000 words!

The photographers are very engaging, very professional, and they get to know their clients (it didn't go unnoticed that some of the examples shown to us included shots of couples similar to us - that's the extra measure that shows they really care about what they're doing). Our photo shoot FAR exceeded what we thought we would be getting for the price, and we may even use them again for another shoot (so that we can wear different clothes - LOL!!). I highly recommend them for any sort of photo shoot you are having done. Nice folks, beautifully shot and edited photos, and they are also fun (and funny) photographers. More...
Finding the right photographers for our engagement and wedding photos was a top priority. When we found JM Photography we had no idea how important James and Melissa came to be in our lives. Every moment we've spent with them as been wonderful and a pure joy! Both of them matched our energy, understood our needs and vision, and gave us photographs that not only captured a moment but encapsulated the emotions that we were experiencing. We couldn't fathom those events without them. They are certainly our family photographers from here on out! If you are looking for photographers for any reason, don't look any further than JM Photography! More...

Nothing but positive things to say about my experience with James & Melissa. I was comfortable, and never felt shy to ask about poses, and tried my best to do poses that they suggested. They're funny, as well as professional, and made sure that my boyfriend and I had a fun shoot. If you're ready for some funny, silly, actual games to be played during shooting as well as beautiful and serious photos that help create amazing images, go to them. They know their stuff!! More...
We absolutely loved working with James and Melissa. From September when we first contacted them to a couple days ago on our wedding day, they were amazingly helpful. They are both easy and fun to work with, friendly, and extremely knowledgeable about wedding photography as well as wedding planning. It is so apparent that these two are not just talented at what they do, but that they truly care about their work and their clients. They made our wedding day that much more special and we are so glad we got to work with them. Thank you both, you are wonderful! :) More...
We LOVE James and Melissa! They took amazing care of us from our engagement session through our wedding day. Specifically on our wedding day, they captured some spectacular shots, included all of our guests, and made us feel so special. Our day would never have gone as smoothly as it did without them. They were the perfect mixture of professional and personal. More...
I recently had JM Photography do a professional business portrait for me and was very impressed by the experience. From the scheduling to the consultation, day of shooting and delivery, every aspect was professional and above expectations. I would highly recommend JM Photography for your next headshot, wedding or portrait session. More...
Great photographers! Fun personalities and very professional! High quality pictures and very willing to work with you to customize your expierence! Highly recommend!!
These two are perfect!! They will exceed your expectations, they take so many pictures that you don't even know about between the two. It's awesome they capture so many perfect moments. I definitely recommend these two for your wedding or any occasion. I can't thank them enough for everything they've done! They go above and beyond to make sure everything is perfect. More...
