Design Aglow's Wedding Week 2015: Meet James Frost

Tell us a little about yourself, where you live and how you got started in photography.
My name is James Frost. I am an international Wedding Photographer originally from Cornwall, UK. I spent my younger years growing up in Spain. Inspired by my Granddad, this is where my passion for photography started. It wasn't long before I picked up my own camera and fell in love with telling stories.



How do you describe your style?
My approach to wedding photography is photojournalistic. This allows me to capture weddings in the most honest way possible.



What or who really inspires you?
A lot of my inspiration comes from films. I also love to travel and shoot personal work, which keeps me inspired to try new stuff at weddings.



What are your top 3 tips for photographing weddings?
1. Be yourself and don't try be something you’re not.
2. Look at other non-wedding photography for inspiration.
3. Meet your clients before the wedding day so you can build trust and a good relationship with them.

Then with my right hand I form a similar backwards C with the phone against the palm of my hand and use my right thumb to take the picture. By having a steady hold on the phone, I eliminate shake. The result is a sharper image.

This past March, my family and I took a road trip from Marietta, Georgia to Charleston, South Carolina.
