Looking for that Perfect Algarve Wedding Photographer?

Searching for a Algarve wedding photographer that suits you is probably one of the hardest decisions in your planning. Your photographer not only has to deliver amazing images of your day they also have to be fun to be around, after all they will be with you from before your make up goes on, through the tears of the ceremony, and right through to dancing on the tables at the end of the night and after all that they still have to be able to deliver your images, beautiful high quality albums and wedding film in a timely fashion and still be on hand offering gallery quality prints and after sales service.

They also need to be able to offer you the full range of services, not just photography, but also video, live ceremony streaming and drone footage, that is a tall order to have all these services under the roof of a well established studio with excellent client reviews.

Well your search is now over!

We contacted James & Kellie last year to discuss what we needed for our wedding. Following initial discussions it was Kellie whom I dealt with in the main, who really followed everything through and delivered as promised. The day of our wedding Olga and her partner arrived on time at our hotel & were ready to start really quickly. Myself being the groom, I was eager to see these photo's before once we got the album through afterwards. Not being too confident in front of the camera, we were put to ease throughout, and made things fun which really helped. Amazingly pleased with our photos, "the little things" really do matter - like having us waiting for the sun to come down between us for the perfect photo and around the pool as well really show in our photos & I would really recommend them, definitely to anyone, they know what they are doing, :). Upon receiving our photo's, again we were taken aback and continued to be surprised. We can only say wow, we did not expect to receive it like they were, such a lovely touch and way to receive the final piece of the jigsaw, we cannot thank you enough for a wonderful surprise. Thank you again for everything Michael & Michelle xx

Where do I start? James and Kellie where outstanding from start to finish. I literally cannot fault a single thing. From the moment they arrived at the bridal suite they made everyone they came into contact with feel very comfortable, it was hard to tell they where even there. They new exactly which photos to take without having to take any instruction from us. They were very easy to be around and added a lot to the day. The package was good value for money and the finished photos are outstanding. We couldn’t be happier! I would recommend them in a heartbeat!

We got married in the Vidamar on June 5th. As I sit down to write this review I realise that honestly there are no words to thank Kellie and James Hardie for everything they did for myself and Ronan, I can only hope that this review reflects how unbelievably grateful we are to have met them and to have had them involved in the planning and of course photography of our day. I first contacted James in June 2017 while researching photographers in the Algarve. I had already booked our venue and wedding planner at this point and was on to my next task of finding a photographer. When I came across James’s facebook page and seen all of their previous work I knew that these guys would be the ones for us, their photographs just blew me away. I contacted James and was so excited when he confirmed that they were still available for our date so I went ahead and provisionally booked them. In the background I contacted my wedding planner to tell her that I had found a photographer available who I absolutely loved and that I had booked them for our date, only to be told that she would not work with this photographer under any circumstances, leaving me to choose between her and the photographer. Lesson to be learned for all future brides.. ask planners before booking them if they have any restrictions around what suppliers they work with!! In the end I just couldn’t continue having this planner organise what should be the most enjoyable day of my life when she knew that I felt so unhappy but just did not seem to care at all. Kellie & James kindly offered to step in, not only to be our photographers but to help plan the entire day and to say that this was the best decision we ever made is such an understatement. These guys truly have the bride and groom’s interest at heart and their only focus was ensuring that we felt happy and that we had the day that we wanted. Kellie took over the planning from this point and organised the entire day, her daughter Megan also helped and even decorated our venue for us on the morning of the wedding. Kellie was so organised and helpful throughout the year.. I honestly don’t know where she gets the time to sleep!! As for the photography, well they had a team of people with them on the day. Everyone commented on how professional they all were. They made us feel so at ease and we had a great laugh with them. We received our extended video clip with the drone and it is just unreal, something we will cherish forever and brings tears to my eyes. Our photographs are equally stunning. Thanks again Kellie, James & Team, we will never forget the effort you put in to make our big day so special and so enjoyable XxX

Thank you so much for your lovely review Muireann and Ronan, you guys were a pleasure to work with and we are just thrilled we could help and that you had the wedding you always dreamed of, and we were honoured you chose us to help organise and capture your day, firm friends have been made and we look forward to meeting up with you both again for a few beers next time you are in the Algarve.

We contacted James & Kellie last year to discuss what we needed for our wedding. We found them both really friendly & professional from the get go & gave us several options. The day of our wedding James & Kellie arrived on time & were ready to start really quickly. We needed a bit of encouragement to pose but James & Kellie were great, had us all laughing which really helped. So, so pleased with our photos, all the little touches like having us waiting for the sun to come down between us for the perfect photo really show in our photos & I would recommend them, definitely.

I fell in love with James Hardie photography from the first video I saw online and we were not disappointed from that point on. From our first meeting to our final moment the service was of the highest standard. On your wedding day you want everything to be perfect and it was. The stream home to my grandmother who was unable to travel was a bonus. Our pictures were amazing and the video even more so. I couldn’t recommend them highly enough. You will not be disappointed.
Response from James Hardie Photography
Thank you Noelle, what a lovely thing to say, you and your family were great and made us feel so welcome, delighted you loved everything and keep in touch.

After searching through so many photographer's websites, we took one look at James & Kellie's photos and fell in love. We read through their website and soon realised they also had a great sense of humour too...so we were sold! To top it off we were pleasantly surprised at the value of the packages compared with other local photographers, especially considering the quality of the work they do! Anyway, on the day they were just amazing. It was like they were guests at the wedding and managed to get over 500 amazing, natural shots at the same time. We like to be different and that included our wedding... it was peace, love & rock n roll theme and the bridesmaids were a rainbow, we had vinyl records everywhere and a surfer's vw campervan for the car etc and James & Kellie captured the theme, the colour and the whole vibe so perfectly. Every single person who has looked at our photos has said 'wow!!' And told me it's the best they've ever seen. We couldn't recommend them enough for their friendliness, fun, professionalism, seamlessness, and of course their talent and art! ... we even got a personal blog written about the wedding with a sneak peak at some pictures....the NEXT day! Thanks so much James & Kellie! I wish we could do it all again now! Xx

Kellie and James were fantastic. We didn even need a wedding planner. They were so helpful in booking everything else for our wedding in Portugal. They were so much fun on the day and nothing was too much trouble. Our photos are beautiful! Thank you so much for making our special day so much fun. I couldn’t recommend enough .
Response from James Hardie Photography
Aww Thanks Marion it was our pleasure and if we can point our brides in the right direction when planning we are more than happy to help, hope to see you in the Algarve again maybe for a family shoot now baby number 2 has arrived. :-)

I fell in love with James and Kellie's work from my first photographer google search. Before we had a venue locked in, we knew we wanted these guys. They were my rock, even down to 12 month before the wedding and changing our venue and date!!! The support before, during and after has been out of this world. Our wedding would not have been complete without JHP and their vision, personalities and love for their work. 2 Of The absolute nicest people you will meet. They do not disappoint. We would do it all again for more of their amazing work..... Roll on the vow renewal. We highly, highly recommend. They are the best!
Response from James Hardie Photography
Thank you Sarah and Rob, after 2 years of planning you have become firm friends and it was a pleasure to help and be there when you both tied the knot, actually got a bit emotional, and now a year on we are still chatting, think its time we started planning your 10 year vow renewal...Just saying.

We had our wedding at lady of the rock on the 30/5/2017. Picking suppliers was a scary task putting your trust in complete strangers but picking who to use for our wedding photographs for me was the biggest decision because they had to be perfect so that we could capture our special day. From the very first Skype we knew we had absolutely made the right decision. Kelly and James were so warm and friendly and went through all of options tailoring our package for what we wanted with no pressure to buy any extras. On the morning of the wedding I was so nervous but as soon as they arrived they made me feel at ease snapping away and making me laugh. Before I knew it I almost forgot I hardly knew them and it was just like having friends take them. They stayed with us the whole day and most of the evening and they did not stop smiling ( I actually think they enjoyed the day more than us). Initially I only decided to opt for a short video to capture the best parts of the day but following my husbands emotional speech I just knew I had to have it all and so I contacted Kelly and she put all of the unused footage together for me to keep forever. We couldn't thank them enough for their hard work on the most important day of our lives and I genuinely feel like we have made two lovely friends in the algarve xx

We meet James and Kellie in Dublin the year before we got married..we felt at ease as soon as we meet them both..we looked at their work and decided that they would be the right people to spend our big day with..On the wedding day Kellie arrived at boys room and sorted the guys out as boys will be boys..we got some great photos and had great laughs getting organised..James went to the girls and the photos were fantastic...Throughout the day James and Kellie were very professional..they worked away not in your face but catching moments when u didn't notice...I would highly recommend them as photographers for your wedding day...
