Welcome to my little corner on the internet. I’m Clinton James and I have been covering Seattle, Bellingham and San Juan Island weddings for almost 20 years. Yes, I have experience.

As a wedding photojournalist, engagement and elopement photographer offering film and film-like intimate weddings, I deliver that sought after balance of images with beautiful, thoughtful elegance and candid, authentic and honest emotions.  I travel throughout the San Juan Islands and Puget Sound region covering elegant weddings for style-conscious couples who want great pictures AND want to enjoy their wedding experience in style.

More About Clinton

Taking pictures is my 9-5 passion. I love my career and the great couples I get to know and work with on a significant day of their lives. 
When I’m not making beautiful images, you can often find me biking local trails or paddling around the Puget Sound in a wooden kayak I made by hand. 
My restless creativity and curiosity is always craving to learn something new. At the moment, I’m learning to restore mid-century furniture, grow heirloom tomatoes, and Adobe Illustrator. Yeah, it’s all over the map.

Did I mention I love to travel? You, too? Destination wedding coverage is available throughout the US, Europe, and Asia. In my portfolio you’ll find images from Cabo, Playa del Carmen weddings in the Riviera Maya, as well as the whole of the U. S. of A. Interested in and elopement, pre-wedding or adventure photography session? Let’s talk about destinations and epic images to collaborate on.

The Brass Tacks:

My wedding coverage packages begin under $2500 and include unlimited pre-wedding consultations, two photographers, full resolution image files, private galleries of images which you can download from your personalized website, a photographer’s release of images, a wedding day slideshow and one of the fastest turn-around times in the industry.

Great pictures. A stress-free wedding day experience. Reliable communication. That’s what you want and I love meeting those expectations, then leaving them in the dust. Let’s listen in on what other couples have said about their experience working with me, how pleased they were with their pictures, and finally, their keepsake wedding album.

Thank you so much for capturing the best day of my life. I can’t actually thank you enough. I will forever cherish these photos. You are amazing at what you do!”    Bri + Brady

Nick and I could not be more thrilled with how the pictures turned out! We are so excited with everything!!! You did such a fantastic job the entire day.  We have so enjoyed the experience of working with you and we can’t wait to recommend you to our soon to be married friends and anyone else in need of a fantastic photographer!”   Laurell + Nick
