Some Reviews Found On The Knot, Wedding Wire and Yelp
My wife and I have never heard of fine art wedding photography until we met James and we were in love with what he showed us. We had our first meeting back in late 2019 before our 11/7/2020 wedding. After chatting with him at a coffee shop for about 30 minutes and looking at his photos/work as well as getting to know him as a person, we were sold instantly!
Then when COVID hit in March 2020, there was a lot of scrambling back and forth like most couples who planned a 2020 wedding. James was so easy and a breathe of fresh air to communicate with every step of the way and just his personality and professionalism during this pandemic really made it a lot easier for my wife and I.
The quality of work that James brings to the table is like none other. He made the whole process so easy and to be honest the way he goes about his work, you almost forget he is there as he captures every amazing moment for you and all your guests.
100% recommend and 200% recommend you at least reach out to have a consultation with him. As a photographer he blew us away with his photos and professionalism.
Truly great at what he does as a photographer and most importantly a wonderful human being to be around and I hope that we can cross paths with James again real soon. :)
We highly recommend James Furman Photography to anyone in San Diego and beyond. We were fortunate to stumble upon his beautiful photographs when we were looking for an engagement photoshoot. The shoot itself was so much fun as we hiked Mission Trials.
We were so impressed with the beauty and lighting of his photographs that we decided to do another session with him on Moonlight Beach for our San Diego wedding reception after returning from our destination wedding.
We have his pictures everywhere - on our walls, in frames, in cards, in our guestbook, in albums... We love the photographs, and we love James' spirit. As an added bonus, he was very reasonably priced and extremely easy to work with.
James is awesome! He is very passionate about his work and about the couples he works with. We asked James to be our photographer for our elopement at a beautiful national park in Southern California. We met a couple of weeks before the big day and helped us scout out a beautiful spot for our ceremony. That's when we realized he was a genius and had a brilliant perspective.
And as elopements sometimes go, some details of our day didn't go as planned and we didn't get to reach the spot we had originally picked. But James improvised and saved the day! He found that beautiful arching tree that not only served as a beautiful backdrop, but it also wrapped around us forming a quiet and magical altar for our ceremony.
We are so grateful for James. Not only does he frame his photos naturally, but he is also able to capture sunlight as if it were alive within those frames.
Ps: We really appreciated how fast James is with his work, he was able to provide us with samples very quickly.
We had a wonderful time with James at our photo shoot in Joshua Tree! Neither my husband or I are very comfortable being photographed, but he made it easy and comfortable, and even fun! James was able to put us both at ease and capture us well through his photography. He found the coolest location that neither of us had been to! 😎
We get many compliments on the photos we received from our shoot, the best quality and so many of them! He works hard at what he does and it shows. We treasure these beautiful photographs and our memories from that day!
James was absolutely wonderful to work with! He did our engagement photos, and they turned out so well that we hired him for our wedding too. James traveled to make it to our wedding venue in central CA and we are so glad he was able to make it. James even scouted a beautiful location off the side of Hwy 1 for us to take our first look photos. His personality, energy and photography is unmatched.
Thank you James for being our wedding photographer!!! 😊
James was a pleasure to work with for our engagement shoot (as well as our upcoming wedding) and really took all our needs and wants into consideration when shooting for us!
The pictures turned out beautifully, colors were vibrant and the subjects were well captured and told a beautiful story. He shot both digital and film for us so it was a delight to have both for keepsakes.
James is very professional, pleasant, and prompt with responses to questions. He is a wonderful vendor to work with - I highly recommend working with him! Packages for photography were very reasonably priced as well.
James was wonderful to work with! He made the process very easy and was quick to respond.
We received so many incredible shots that are perfect for our engagement and wedding announcements! I can't wait to do another photo shoot with James. We are so lucky to have these gorgeous photos.
Thank you James for capturing this special time in our lives!
I highly recommend James Furman photography! I was instantly captured by his work as I searched for a specific look online.
Prior to the wedding we to chance to meet once. He was very professional and we instantly got along with him so we quickly booked him. My husband and I were blown away with his artistic ability to capture the magical moments throughout the wedding. His calm demeanor was refreshing as he guided our large wedding party. We will cherish our wedding images forever!
We had our engagement shoot with James and we couldn't be happier. He was very professional, personable, and knew what he was doing. He captured the most ordinary scenery and created picturesque moments - what an incredible eye.
I am a SUPER awkward photo taker and it was 55 degrees and windy but you can't even tell in the photos because he did such an amazing job!
We would definitely recommend James to anyone looking to photograph any big life events.
