My hubby and I would like to thank Kellie and James for an amazing day at our wedding last week. We had so much fun and our sneaky peak photos are incredible. We can’t wait to see them all.

You are such a great couple with an amazing talent for capturing exactly the shots we had dreamt of.

Thank you x

Meet Kayleigh & Hayden that sent us this video review, made us feel all warm and fuzzy.

What a fabulous day we had with Kellie and James.

From our first meeting, we knew that we had made the right decision in choosing them for our photos and video package. From the start we were put at ease, and Kellie and James went above and beyond our expectations.

They got all of the family photos done so quickly and smoothly which left plenty of time for us to enjoy the celebrations. The time we spent at the beach was so special and it was great to see from the photo that they have a fantastic eye for capturing the seascape of the Algarve. We really couldn’t have asked for better photographers.

Thank you so much for being there on our special day and we look forward to seeing the full gallery in the near future. Sharon & Brian xx

James Hardie photography made our Algarve wedding day so special. The pictures they took captured every special moment beautifully. James and Kellie are so down to earth and easy to work it.

Had such a good day with them both as they make you feel so comfortable. We made a decision last minute too keep them on for the rest off the evening and it was a great decision as they captured some great sunset shots As the evening went on.

We would definitely recommend these guys to anybody in search of professional photographers.

Thanks so much we appreciate everything you’s have done for us xx

James and Kellie are the best photographers we have EVER come across.

The creative genius that comes over in the images will forever leave us with the perfect memory of our big day. It also helps that they are both amazing people!

James & Kellie were 1st class & we even got our flash drive of pics the day after we arrived home in plenty of time for our wedding reception back home.

Highly recommend

Incredible people with and an amazing sense of humour, both James and Kellie made our special day truly special…

Again thank you, you have really become friends.

Ben & Hayley,

Casa Do Largo

When Mike and I first started planning our dream wedding in Portugal, we were initially daunted by the prospect of organising everything ourselves. However, when it came to choosing a photographer for the big day, we had no hesitation in using James Hardie Photography, as they came highly recommended by every supplier we dealt with along the way.  

Our first meeting was set up with Kellie on the stunning marina in Vilamoura, where we were shown a portfolio of samples of weddings and held an in-depth discussion of our ideas for the day. We both warmed to Kellie straight away and knew they were the ones we could trust to produce our priceless photos!

Everything went to plan on the day and James and Kellie have a great working relationship which is inspiring to see and many of the guests commented afterwards on how welcoming they were.

We thank you James and Kellie, for producing our dream shots of the big day that will stay with us forever.  We hope to see you for a drink or two when we venture back to the Algarve soon!

Love Claire and Mike xxxx

We have had the absolute pleasure of meeting and working with James and Kellie. They have been truly extraordinary.

We really can’t thank them enough for what they have done for us….from the pre shoot and video all the way up to our wedding day.

They are such a lovely, kind and fun couple to work with. Not once did they make us feel uncomfortable. We truly have made friends for life and we look forward to our next future shoot with them.

Both are true masters at what they do….thank you.

On behalf of myself and my new husband Chris I would like to thank James, Kellie for capturing the amazing moments of our special day in Vilamoura. Organising the wedding from the UK can be daunting, but from the first email exchanged, Kellie and James instilled confidence in us and took a genuine interest in us as a couple. We met last minute (the day before the wedding) and left our meeting feeling reassured and confident that we had made the right choice regarding our photographs. On the day, they did exactly as we requested and kept the photography laid back and unintrusive. They stayed for the whole day and even left us a lovely message in our guestbook. James and Kellie clearly have an eye for detail and found opportunities for photographs at times and places we wouldn’t have even thought about. We found them professional, fun and genuine people. The photographs from our wedding are amazing and we can’t wait to share them with our friends and family. Thanks again for capturing the spirit and joy of our lovely wedding!
