Hi, how are you?

It's my view that brides deserve to LOOK as good as they FEEL on their wedding day.

I photograph weddings in all parts of Minnesota including Northern Minnesota and am willing to travel to any destination for your special day! I recently booked an October wedding in Mexico! Normal rates apply plus travel and basic accomodations. I do not charge for mileage within Minnesota.

Is your media preference film or digital?
Digital offers several advantages. Faster turnaround time for proofs, more quality pictures, the ability to shoot in low light situations. Perhaps most importantly, if a photographer shoots infrared film, you are stuck with what the film captures whereas with digital the image could be reinterpreted.

Do you charge hourly or full day?
Full Day - No hourly fees. No time limits. Our goal is complete coverage of your wedding day story.
Are you available to shoot extra hours? If yes, how much do you charge for extra hours?
It is my mission to tell your wedding day story from start to finish. I come early to scout the location and stay late so I don't miss anything. So I don't charge for extra hours.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
Usually the meal is the best time to take a break - although I communicate with the couple to make sure I know the schedule for the toasts, dancing, etc.

We got our Engagement Pictures Taken by James, and he is incredible! He is very flexible and accomodating, as well as patient and likes to cater to what kind of pictures you like. He is open to ideas and is good at leading you through a shot as well to make you comfortable. We just love that we hired him and the photos have turned out to be absolutely amazing and beautiful.

Our wedding is coming up in a few weeks and we are super excited to have James Ramsay part of our day and to be the one we entrust our priceless wedding photos, that i know we will charish forever. Thank you so much James you are such an amazing photographer I would not recommend anyone above you, you are untouchable!

We LOVE James!! Not only is he wonderful to work with, he takes AWESOME photos! I highly recommend James.

We did both our engagement and wedding photos with him and we got something like 300+ photos. He describes his photos as journalistic, but I would would say it is more like hidden camera. He is able to capture the tender, unguarded moments. In fact, our best photos were the "oops!" photos between me dictating Husband to pose. (BTW... I am a... er... larger bride and let me tell you, I have NEVER looked so good! Jeepers! You should see my legs in some of these shots. Move over Victoria Secret Models... I am in town!)

Some people are sports photographers or wedding photographers or portrait photographers. Well, James is a born photographer, who lives and breathes capturing moments of all sorts - and beautifully. I've never seen anyone combine vanity with reality quite like James does. He turns every step of the wedding day into a photographic masterpiece.
