At Just Big Smiles we love working as a pair! Karl and I 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.

Wedding Photography Reviews from Google

  • review rating 5  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.

  • review rating 5  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).

  • review rating 0  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.

You were not only our photographers but a part of our wedding. Everyone at our wedding loved you guys and we had many of our guests saying they wish they had you two at their weddings. Highly recommended!!!!. If any of you guys are reading this and have not booked a photographer yet then get these guys while you still can. Thank you once again from James and Rosie xx

  • review rating 5  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!

  • review rating 5  If your looking for someone to capture your wedding day or any other special event, look no further, right from the initial meeting with just big smiles we knew they were the photographers for us. We chose their platinum package which included our engagement photoshoot, the wedding day, and a photo album. What really surprised us was just how dedicated to their research and preparation they were; from several meetings with us, venue visits, scouting out different areas around our wedding venue for great photo opportunities and personal requirements. They couldn’t have made our time with them any more at ease, fun, yet professional and unique all in one, ensuring nothing was too much trouble and taking an anything is possible approach to our day. When we sat down to review our photos, we couldn’t have been happier. They captured the day perfectly; the lighting and angles were exceptional and the finish was spectacular. Both myself and my husband wouldn’t want anyone but just big smiles to capture our special moments from this point on, they are the photographers for us. We cannot wait to work with you again and we will always recommend your services Xx

  • review rating 5  When you ask someone you don’t know to provide a service, there is always some uncertainty at first and the hope that the right decision was made. We did some background research on Just Big Smiles and we liked what we saw so we decided to ask them to be our photographers on our wedding day. We first met Jim and Karl on the day of the engagement shoot. They wanted to know all about our expectations, our likes and dislikes for the big day. They were very attentive and friendly. During the engagement shoot, we all learnt a bit more about each other and that helped us relax - we don’t normally like having photos taken of us. When we saw the results, we could really see how technically competent they are with cameras, but also how nice their artistic ideas were. On the big day, when we saw them again, it felt like we were meeting friends - again that helped us relax more in front of the camera to the point of almost forgetting about it. Jim and Karl’s technical competence was obvious once again, always thinking about what would work and what wouldn’t and making the most of what’s available at the time (fields, sunsets, trees in blossom, etc). During the group photos, they cracked jokes and created diversions to get people to relax and look amused. We also liked their nature documentary like approach for some of their photography. Some of our favourite pictures are of people caught off-guard and not knowing they were photographed. They also set up our photo booth and took the photos, which was a good source of entertainment. In summary, we are very happy that we took the decision to ask Jim and Karl to be our photographers for our big day. We found them friendly, attentive, technically and artistically very competent and we could not recommend them highly enough. When the day was over, it felt quite sad to say goodbye as it felt like we were saying farewell to friends we had known for a long time.
