Meet Your Wedding Photographers

At Just Big Smiles we love working as a pair! Karl and Jim have been friends for nearly 20 years and this shows in our work as we both have the same passion and the ability to work as one.

We love photographing weddings, as we can put on our suits, shine our shoes, and dust off our bowler hats, (yes, we do look like Laurel and Hardy) and spend an entire day with awesome people having fun and taking photographs of the guests enjoying themselves. We really do have the best job in the world, but shhh don’t tell anyone.

Hi, I’m Jim

Wedding Photographer

aka Stan Laurel, married to my beautiful wife Donna and I can honestly say getting married was the best thing I have ever done, in fact, I have married the same girl twice without ever getting divorced, all I can say is what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas!

Hi, I’m Karl

Wedding Photographer

aka Ollie Hardy, living in Swaffham and loving photography since I was 8 years old. I never thought I would ever have a career in photography until Jim asked me to help him photograph my first wedding and I loved every minute, the rest is, history!

He puts you right at ease, makes you laugh and gets the job done, the quality of his pictures is just excellent. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him.

  • Jim managed to capture the inner angels of my three little demons beautifully. My 5, 3 and 1yr old were not overly cooperative but Jim was incredibly patient and as a result I have some absolutely stunning photos to remind me just how lucky I am to have such precious little people in my life.

  • As someone who both hates having their photo taken and being 'posed' I am quite happy to say that the service offered by Big Smiles is an experience worth having. Jim gently nudged me into position and even managed to catch me smiling! Many thanks Jim for a perfect head shot

  • Now I have to say I find having my photograph taken very painful and I usually reject every one of them, but this is the quickest and most painless experience ever. Jim was very professional and had tricks up his sleeve to distract me and we came up with a terrific photograph that I am proud to use publicly. Thank you Jim!

  • I have been compelled to writ a review for Just Big Smiles. As members of the Rainmakers Club, Jim has been a real benefit, not just becase he is a member and a vlaued member at that, and not beciase he has supported our fellow members with his photographic skills. Mostly because he is a great photographer and really cares about his art and its quality. Trust me his pictures are art! Planing an evetn or wedding or need some great shots think JustBigSmiles!

  • Well what can I say. Karl and Jim were amazing. So professional from start to finish. Had many laughs along the way. Everything was amazing. They went above and beyond anything we expected. The photos we received back were on point and they captured our day down to a tee. Many people remarked on how friendly, professional and fun you both were.Much fun had with the photo booth and props too.If anyone is looking for amazing photos with lots of laughs and advice along the way, I would very highly recommend you get in touch with Jim and Karl to capture any event. Thanks for everything you helped us with to make our Wedding day go well.

  • I cannot rate Jim highly enough - not just for our fantastic wedding album which he went above and beyond what we could have wished for but our very special day would not have been the same without him - the meeting before the day; sharing experiences on timings and how the day will run smoothly, providing water after the church service and then the surprise of the black boards (which you will have to find out for yourselves). If you are looking or a photographer for your wedding and you don't want any worries on what to look back on, look no further, as you will truly have 'just big smiles' on the day. Thanks Jim (for everything).

  • Jim and Karl were absolutely phenomenal on our wedding day, giving a whole new meaning to the phrase "extra mile". There was nothing that couldn't or wouldn't do on the day, making even the most camera shy individual love the camera. They really created a fun and relaxed atmosphere, which on the biggest day of your life is no easy feat. They listened to what we wanted and accommodated every one of our wishes, getting the perfect individual shots and breath taking group shots. The pair were incredibly creative with plenty of outside the box ideas, that created some truly wonderful memories. I cannot recommend the pair enough, and not one of our guests had a bad word to say about them. They were extremely professional and absolute delight to share our special day with, and compared to the other companies we looked at you don't have to remortgage to hire.

  • Jim captured some beautiful images for me during the reception of my wedding a couple of years ago. After providing me with a stunning selection for my wedding album, I couldn’t not book him to capture some maternity images during the Covid lockdown! Jim is professional and really has an eye for the perfect shot! We are already booked in for the newborn shoot of our baby girl - hopefully at the studio! Thank you ever so much Jim, so pleased with the images you’ve captured during my family’s life events! Louise x

  • Had some photos done for my newborn baby girl and they were amazing 😍 Jim was super friendly and really confident when telling us how to have her positioned, considering it was his first time doing babies the photos came out amazing and I couldn't be happier. They were all done through social distancing aswell which was a bonus. Highly Recommend 👍

  • Jim came highly recommended, he is friendly, approachable, helpful and very professional. We wanted someone who was discreet but capture our Wedding Day and Jim definitely delivered. Jim was there from the start right through to the end when our evening entertainment finished at midnight. Within a couple of days our photos were sent to us and looking through the brilliant photos we saw our day unfold again before our eyes, capturing our family and friends enjoying the day, with fantastic group shots, some lovely unique and personal shots and action shots too. Jim then produced a fantastic album adjusting it to our requirements and a few weeks later our album was ours, along with a video and all the photos taken on a memory stick all given in presentation boxes, a lovely touch. He even printed photos at our request for us to give to family and friends. Our guests also remarked how friendly and professional Jim was throughout the day. We would have no hesitation whatsoever recommending Jim for Wedding photos, or for any other event. Thank you Jim. Guy and Elaine Hubbard.

  • After looking at many different Wedding Photographers Mark and I were really pleased with our final choice in James and Karl at Just Big Smiles.

    From the first time we met these guys we could tell they were going to help us capture our day in just the way we wanted. They met with us a couple of times in advance to talk through our requirements including a practice shoot in Abbey Gardens to ensure we knew exactly the right spots to capture the perfect memories and didn't keep our friends and family hanging around too long on the big day.

    The after care was as good as the day itself, they came back to us quickly with an edited selection of shots and helped us create an album we will treasure as a momento of a great day.


    We would highly recommend Just Big Smiles, friendly, approachable and professional, thanks guys - you were ace!
