Chiang Mai Wedding Venues

Many Chiang Mai wedding venues will want to sell you a package that includes a photographer. Please think very carefully before accepting this. Your wedding photos will be something to look back on in years to come and package photography may be cheap but is unlikely to give you the images that you will treasure.

Most of the top Chiang Mai wedding venues are used to working with us so they may very well point you in our direction. We are very happy to work with your hotel or other venue in order to ensure the very best Chiang Mai wedding photography. If you are getting married in Chiang Mai and have made your choice from the selection of Chiang Mai wedding venues please get in touch so that we can integrate with their wedding packages.

Chiang Mai Wedding With Elephants

As part of our Pre-wedding services we offer portraits with elephants. However we can also offer a spectacular, unique and all inclusive Chiang Mai wedding venue complete with a backdrop of elephants. Chai Lai Orchid eco resort is a unique elephant sanctuary providing all you need for a very unique and special wedding ceremony.

This is an opportunity that is probably not available anywhere else in Thailand. James is renowned for his portraits with elephants and the shots are stunning.

Chai Lai can provide everything including a full reception. All this with a jungle setting and elephants.

How We Work

“Before moving to Chiang Mai I was based in the UK. I started working life in interior decoration and that is also where my journey as a photographer began more than 25 years ago.  As a property photographer you gain a special way of seeing composition, light and detail. This, combined with a period of working with a great fashion photographer in London helped me develop a timeless style of wedding photography. I call it a modern classic style. It is my belief that a photo I take today should still be a great photo in 20 years time.

I am always looking for the perfect angle, the perfect light and composition.

For me, every great photo begins in the heart. It is why I am a photographer, because my heart decided that this was the way for me.”

“I am so grateful for his hard work, and dedication. It wouldn’t have been the same without him. Bottom line, if you are looking for a photographer, who is down to earth, funny, pure awesomeness, and is a talented photographer, James is your best bet. I highly recommend him, and his photos speak volumes alone. We can’t thank you enough James”  – H & P from New York

Fitting of white wedding dress is generally at least one day before the shoot.

From past experience we recommend that you bring your own shoes for the outfits. Sandals or barefoot work best for the Lanna Thai outfits.
