Douglas James Studios is an award winning studio that offers high end, personalized, wedding photography and cinematography. Photography coverage starts at $3500. Packages are all inclusive and contain plenty of time for coverage, engagement session, album, digital negatives, and a host of other options.

Our entire studio takes great responsibility ensuring the dynamic emotions and energy of a wedding day are uniquely captured. We believe there are few instances in our lives that will ever provide an opportunity to frame this social, yet intimate expression of love through lush visual prose.

Each one of us seeks to truly inspire those we collaborate with and, to that end, believe a Douglas James experience is not contained to a single day, but your entire wedding process. Read less

We just got back our wedding photos from Doug and could not be happier with them! It was so much fun to relive our wedding day - they are absolutely stunning. Doug is incredible. I met him at a wedding expo with my mom right after getting engaged and told my fiance he had to meet him. Doug went out of his way to come to our house to meet both of us and tell us about his packages. You could feel his passion, and his pictures exuded it. We knew we were in good hands and felt so thankful to have found him. I really wanted to have an engagement session but my fiance was a bit unsure at that time. Doug ended up talking us into it and my fiance couldn't be more happy that we decided to. Not only was I happy that we did since I had wanted to, but we both felt so much more comfortable after we did - we had never been professionally photographed before so this was a great opportunity to see what it was like, and get to know Doug even further. He made us feel really comfortable, kept things laid back and we had a ton of fun. When we got the pictures back, we were blown away - they were absolutely stunning - and it solidified the great decision we had made selecting him. We would highly recommend doing an engagement session, especially for any couples on the fence! Leading up to the wedding, Doug answered countless emails, continued to work with us on accommodating all of our/my requests and concerns. He never made me feel like a bother and was always quick to respond both friendly and professionally. On the day of our wedding, Doug, Rachel and their intern were a rock star team! Our wedding party and guests all commented on how they didn't even notice them around, and the ones that did, couldn't stop talking about how nice and fun they were - they felt like a part of our family. We truly could not have been happier with our experience and highly recommend Doug and his team to anyone looking for a photographer. We will definitely look to use him again for our next life event.

Finding the right photographer and cinema team to capture the memories of our most important day was huge for us. Douglas James and his team did not disappoint! Doug was extremely professional and quick to respond through all of our communications, when we met in person and reviewed all of the options, we instantly saw that his passion for capturing these memories was as important to him as it was for us, we knew we found our photography and cinema team. It was nice that the combination option was available through one vendor and many packages were available to fit your wants and budget. We were unable to complete our engagement session prior to our day, so we had some nerves about how everything would go on our wedding day but Doug set our minds at ease. We met with Doug at our venue about a month before the wedding day for a site walk through, Doug amazed us as he built a timeline from start to finish; this process made us feel so comfortable about the flow of the day; we knew that we were in great hands. Additionally, Doug took the time to communicate with our venue contacts to ensure our needs were met, relieving some pressure from us. From the moment the team arrived on the wedding day, everyone involved made us, our wedding party and all involved, feel relaxed and comfortable. They are all so talented at their craft and truly do blend into the background, making it easy to relax and have natural photos. They made the process fun and enjoyable, not long into the day, we felt like we had friends snapping amazing shots of us. We highly recommend Douglas James Studios to capture your most precious moments!

Where do I even begin?! Doug and his team were absolutely amazing! He was completely professional, yet fun and down-to-earth. Our families and bridal party were blown away by him! By the end of the night, Doug and the team truly felt like family.
I have yet to receive our proofs, as our wedding was just a few short days ago, but what I was able to see took my breath away. He was able to capture the love and fun between my husband and I in a way that I didn't even know was possible! For that, I'm incredibly grateful. I cannot recommend Douglas James Studios enough! An absolute must for brides looking for that extra special photography or cinema team!

Doug traveled to Mexico to cover our destination wedding; he was nothing short of AMAZING....and this was even before we got to see any of the pictures! Doug did such a wonderful job of organizing the bridal party, and making sure things ran smoothly; he didn't miss a beat and was on top of everything! I had all of my pictures back promptly, and they left me speechless! they are absolutely stunning- I cant stop looking through them!! Everyone who attended my wedding raves about Doug, and what a wonderful job he did; I couldn't imagine having ANYONE else capture the moments of our special weekend! "Doug is the man!" as my husband and groomsmen say... :)

The entire team at Douglas James Studios were wonderful. I had my wedding outside of the Philadelphia area, and when I first spoke with Doug about it he had no problem making the trip.... and for an affordable price. Doug is very easy to talk to and will listen to everything you want and try to incorporate that in. He was also very good with sticking to the time table and not losing track of time, which was extremely important for the limo rental. All the guest were raving about how great the photographers were the next day. They were so engaging and interactive with everyone, which made it a blast! All around Doug was an excellent choice, where we got great quality photos at a great price!

Doug was so much fun to work with and super creative too! Our pictures turned out gorgeous and he even photoshopped every gnat that was flying around that day (it was a very buggy evening!) and the stitches on my husband's forehead (a nice souvenir from his bachelor party.... :/ ). Thanks Doug!
