Must-Have Wedding Shots.

Planning a wedding? You’ve come to the right place! James Burton Photography is one of Perth’s leading wedding photographers. We are passionate about capturing your big day in all its glory and we know that you want to remember every detail forever. That’s why we offer five must-have shots for your wedding day, so you can cherish these memories forever.

These are the moments you will treasure always – from the first look to walking down the aisle together as husband and wife, from cutting the cake with your new spouse to dancing under the stars at midnight. Our team of professional photographers will capture it all beautifully on camera so that you can relive those special memories over and over again. Let us be part of your story today! 

Regardless of what you tell your photographer, you’ll still get plenty of shots over the course of your day. But if there’s anything in particular you’ve envisioned, then it’s important to communicate that. Use our example shot list below as a general outline – and build off of it!
