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.

From a very early age I loved taking pictures and looking at them in magazines and books, but the art of photography captured my heart when I was a teenager, on my first overseas trip to Wales. From that point, I began shooting with a little film SLR and having my friend model for me. In college I took some digital photography and visual communication courses as part of my communication studies major, and decided to pursue a career in photography. I became a legal business and took my first paid client at age 20, and it's been quite a journey and adventure over the past nine years.
I secretly bought a mail-order 35mm camera when I was 15, and took lots of ordinary photos of animals and nature for several years. Although I majored in art and studied photography in college, my career started in marketing and advertising, from the client service end. Then I had the most beautiful baby, found my old camera and realized how much I love photographing people.
