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.

The turquoise waters of the Bahamas, the dramatic Rocky Mountains, the vistas of Iceland- endless romantic images pop into our minds when we think of destination weddings. And that is why, almost every wedding photographer at some point wants to give them a go.
So we’re going to tell you how to find them, book them, and prep for them.
The formula is simple.
clients you love + photography you are excited about + doing it your way = happy photographer
We think a shift should be made in photography. A happiness shift. You likely got into photography because you love taking photographs. And then the reality of making a living at it started to creep in, and you became bound to jobs you didn’t really want to do, because you needed the money. We’ve been there, and yep, it stinks.
