“I can’t even begin to explain how GRATEFUL my husband and I are to have had Perry shoot for our engagement, my bridal shower, and our wedding! There’s a reason we used him over and over and it’s genuinely because he is the best at what he does. After these big life events you only get to walk away with the memory of them and Perry captures those moments perfectly! Not to mention the positivity he radiates, how comfortable he made us feel in front of the camera, and how easy he was to work with. (Our engagement was in Rhode Island and our wedding location started in California and moved to MN two months before and Perry was always so flexible and accommodating with our changes!) All that to say, Perry is the only photographer I would trust with our once in a lifetime moments!”
“My wife and I couldn’t recommend Perry higher. The X factor in photography is to be able to connect with the people you are taking photos of. Not only is Perry a highly skilled technical photographer - he has the X factor of a highly skilled relational photographer. He has an ability to pull your true self out in every moment. He directs you without being pushy, and you can tell he has thought out each moment of your busy and full day, to best capture the event. He is a joy to work with and can’t wait to find a reason to have him come do photos again!”
“We are SO happy we chose Perry as our wedding photographer! He not only has incredible photos, but his personality and professionalism has left us feeling extremely at ease for our wedding. He has been extremely present through our planning process and has been very helpful and flexible with our schedules. We were absolutely blown away by our engagement photos! Any bride and groom would be lucky to have Perry as a photographer, he was an absolute joy to work with and an amazing person. Thank you for capturing our lives so perfectly!”
“Perry is AMAZING! We weren't sure what to expect for engagement pictures and he made us feel totally comfortable and even was willing to capture some in the rain! For our wedding he went above and beyond and captured the most perfect sunset pictures we really wanted and was running around to capture all of the special moments of our wedding day and our guests interacting. All of our guests and wedding party talked about how kind and inviting Perry made them feel. We would definitely recommend Perry to anyone who wants a positive and very talented photographer! :)”
“My wedding pictures are everything I wanted and more!
My husband and I chose Perry James Photography after a friend had previously seen his excellent work in a prior wedding. While working with Perry, my husband and I felt that Perry truly put his heart into his work. Perry and his team make our wedding day memories come back to life each and every time we look back at our pictures.
Needless to say, I would recommend Perry James Photography to all couples.”
“Perry is as good as it gets! Made us feel extremely comfortable and confident. He has great ideas and takes advantage of the moments that come naturally! For poses that didn’t come as natural he gave clear, easy direction. Love his work!!”
“Perry is extremely professional and most importantly very fun to work with! He helped us think through some details that we would have overlooked and helped us think through our timeline as well. That’s not what I would have looked for in a photographer but speaks to how Perry operates as a professional photographer. He captured our wedding the way we were hoping and even made us go outside in the snow for some extra fun shots :)”
“I found Perry through Instagram and immediately fell in love with his work. From the very beginning he made us feel very comfortable, not to mention he was a dream to work with! He did an absolutely incredible job. Every time I look at our pictures, I relive all the emotions from that day. Our wedding and engagement photos are moments that we will cherish for a lifetime. Thank you so much for an incredible experience!”
“Do yourself a favor and trust Perry with your wedding photography- he is a true wedding professional. His photography is spectacular and knew exactly how to capture our day. Having an excellent photographer was a necessity for us, and Perry blessed us with so much more than we could ever have imagined.
When my wife and I first met Perry, we knew we were in great hands. He was enthusiastic and truly cared about getting to get to know us. He asked us questions about every detail. He made sure he knew our venue and was fully prepared. He was always on time, and always had a smile.
Perry delivers flawless photos, but he is much more than a great photographer - he is an expert. He made us feel excited, comfortable, and confident about our wedding day. He was more aware of our time schedule than we were, and he made sure we stuck to it. He was entirely invested in us. He made sure my wife and I had a great wedding experience. He had a sixth sense for recognizing our feelings and emotions throughout the day, and accommodated us perfectly. We are so thankful we had Perry. Don’t bother going anywhere else, he will make your day magic.”
“Perry did our engagement photos and will soon be capturing our wedding in California!! Our engagement photos are absolutely beautiful and exceeded my expectations. I attribute this to his ability to be professional yet make my fiancé and I feel 100% comfortable in front of the camera. Perry made the process fun and my fiancé and I had a great time capturing these special moments. We have more than enough amazing photos to choose from and I ended up making my guest book a Shutterfly Book with all our engagement photos. I could not be happier with our experience and cannot wait for Perry to photograph our wedding this summer! Perry is truly talented and an AMAZING photographer!”
“We had such a fun engagement session with Perry at Minnehaha Falls! Leading up to the session, Perry was very communicative and knowledgeable in helping us decide on location and time of year. He also not only allowed our dogs to join in on the fun, but encouraged it! When the dogs were totally disinterested in the camera, Perry was patient and offered suggestions. The absolute best thing about working with Perry is his warm, welcoming personality! This allowed for us to relax and just be us – which was captured in the photographs that we have hanging throughout our home.
We truly loved working with Perry and cannot recommend him and his professional talent more! Thank you, Perry, for giving us timeless memories to hold onto!”
“My husband and I loved having Perry as our wedding/engagement photographer! He captured our day more perfectly than we could have ever imagined. Through the entire process, he conducted himself with character and professionalism. We had so many positive comments from family and friends! He made us feel confident and comfortable. Perry is authentic, relational, and filled with JOY. Just an all-around amazing, talented person. You will not be disappointed.”
”Perry is the best. We couldn't speak more highly of him both as a person and as a photographer. He is genuine, fun and ... as you can tell from his work, talented! Our engagement session was an absolute blast and we can't wait for him to be with us and our wedding party on the day of our wedding. Perry has such a positive and fun energy and the photos are all amazing. If you're looking for the best photographer and person to be with you all day and capture amazing, authentic moments, Perry is your guy!”
“I heard about Perry from one of my potential venue's list of "preferred vendors." After the first meeting with Perry, I knew that I didn't need to contact any other photographers. He is so great at keeping nerves at bay both in meetings and in the engagement session, and his professionalism was evident in person and in photos! We had a tough time narrowing down the amazing engagement photos, and I am so ecstatic to have Perry capture the wedding day!!”
“I cannot say enough good things about Perry. He is not only a phenomenal photographer but an incredibly down-to-earth, inspiring and genuine individual. He went out of his way to travel all the way to Colorado to shoot my fiance and I's engagement photos and it was a BLAST. Neither my fiance nor I ever thought taking engagement photos could be so much fun! Perry has a natural ability to connect with people and helped us feel comfortable in front of the camera. We cannot wait to have him photograph our wedding and would give him our highest recommendation to anyone!”
“Perry’s love for life is contagious. You can’t help but smile when you’re around him, which is good especially since he’s taking photos of you! He notices the small and big details. You’ll treasure the memories he’s captured forever!”
“PERRY IS THE BEST. Not only is he an incredibly talented photographer, he is an amazing person. From the moment we met him, it was clear that his energy would elevate our big day. And on our wedding day, he brought it. So much so that our bridal party of 18 chanted his name and gave him a standing O when he left for the night. He kept us calm and smiling all day while also somehow keeping us right on schedule and capturing every moment we had previously discussed. Hiring Perry was one of the best decisions we made. Look no further, you have found your photographer.”
