I am an artist, and wedding photography is my passion.
I specialize in contemporary portraiture and what I like to call intimate photojournalism.
History
Since 1999 I have been shooting weddings and family portraiture.
In January of 2005, James Mueller Photography was established.
I live with my lovely fiance Erika Mapes and our super-cute studio mascot Lola, in Laurel Heights, San Francisco. You can find me at TheKnot.com, TheWeddingChannel.com, and Yelp. I am a preferred vendor at Clos LaChance winery in the South Bay, Garre Winery in the Livermore Valley, and Vintner’s Inn in Napa.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Black and white photography was my specialty in the film days, so I always have a space in my heart for sepia tone effects and other artistic techniques. Always to enhance an image, never to distract. I am an expert retoucher as well, please ask to see some before and after images.

Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
My life revolves around my client's weddings, you should see my fiancee trying to get me to even go out to dinner on the eve of a wedding. I have not been late to any of the 200+ weddings I have been responsible for.

The digital high resolution negatives are available in a 2-disc DVD set.

James was amazing to work with! The pictures that he took for our engagement session were talked about up until the wedding; to say the least the wedding pictures were incredible too! He is extremely responsive and always flexible with our schedules. He's a pleasure to work with and his work is outstanding. I would recommend him to anyone!

"It's not the camera that makes the pictures, it's the photographer" This is something that you should always keep in mind when choosing a photographer. I am sure that there are a million professional photographers out there who have the exact same camera as James, but there is one thing they will never have...the his eyes and the way that they see the world. I have had the privilege of working with James on three separate occassions and I was always more than amazed with his work. His photographs are truly artistic and meant to be treasured for a lifetime. We were fortunate enough to have him shoot our family here in Hawaii and even when I wanted to give up on getting good shots of my three young children his energy kept us going. Now that I have experienced his talent I am hard-pressed to find another photographer that I can be satisfied with.

Here we were 3 years ago searching for the best vendors for our wedding. This was not just an educated guess to select James Muller Photography. He was referred to us by a friend months before the wedding. We were quite impressed with his attention to details and moments at every second of the wedding. You go with James and you will refer him to others as well.. You will not be disappointed…Guaranteed....

I'm actually afraid that James will become so in demand that us "commoners" won't be able to book him anymore! :) James photographed my best friend's wedding, then my wedding, then my dad's wedding. There is not a better photographer to work with, James has it all! First, he makes everyone so comfortable, the whole experience is natural and true. Second, the technical quality of his work is amazing. He's creative, unique, and will basically become Spiderman to get that shot he's after. Third, you won't get a better value as far as how much time and effort he invests in his clients. He's definitely NOT a "template" photographer, every event and album is fresh and personalized, and he is the absolute best for listening to your suggestions and direction. The day of our engagement photo session, it RAINED in SF, but we were undeterred because of James. He brought a nice black umbrella and we went with it...and our photos are awesome from that day, I think I like them a little better than our actual wedding photos. They look very Parisian with the black umbrella and fog. We would immediately reschedule if it were any other photographer. Instead, we have a very special set of engagement photos and a perfect memory of an imperfect day.
