Welcome to Jamie Bott wedding photography. I’m passionate about creating exceptional wedding photographs for my clients that document and capture the emotional essence of each of their unique occasions. I believe that great wedding photographs should transport you back to the way you felt on the best day of your life and want you to still be in love with your pictures in 50 years time when you’re sitting down showing your wedding album to your grandchildren. To achieve this I believe in pushing myself to exceed expectations at every wedding I photograph for each and every one of my wonderful clients.
In 2013 I was extremely honoured to discover that I had won Wedding Photographer Select’s international wedding photographer of the year award as well as their award for the best wedding Image of the year. This was followed up in 2014 when Fearless Photographers ranked me as their Best UK Wedding Photographer and Best English Wedding Photographer over a period of 18 months which I still find a little bit mind blowing!
Based in the beautiful surroundings of North Devon I work most commonly as a London wedding photographer though I love to travel and have photographed weddings all over the UK and abroad.
If you enjoy my photography please get in touch, I would love to be your wedding photographer. Just click the ‘Check your date’ tab to get started!
Below is a testimonial I received from Gemma and Harvey describing their experience with me.
We would just like to say a huge thank you for being our wedding photographer. Your photos are simply spectacular. It makes us so happy looking through them because they allow us to relive an incredible weekend. Given that you were just a stones throw from us for such a long time, it was also a pleasure to have you around! You just felt like an old friend.
When we first saw your work about 4 years ago, we loved how natural they were, how you had captured what really happened rather than posed shots or worse, faked moments! We also loved the creativity in your compositions. After 3 years of working in the wedding industry ourselves, there was still no other photographer we considered for our wedding. We even changed our date so that you could make it!
Preparations with you were really easy. You were direct about what we needed to know and gave some good tips on formal photos. During our wedding weekend, you worked professionally, quickly and incredibly hard to beautifully capture everyone and every moment that you could. I don’t think you even flinched when a welly was thrown at you!
Your camera angles and modest, laid back personality meant it didn’t take long for our guests to get used to having you around either and after a while, we barely noticed you! That made for some great relaxed shots of people at their best.
We received our preview photos very quickly. It was great to get a glimpse of what was to come and share them with guests while it was fresh in their memories. Their feedback about your photos was brilliant.
Seeing our full set of photos for the first time was quite overwhelming. It bought back so many emotions from the day – we laughed and cried all over again. I wasn’t sure how we would ever choose some for our album, so it was great to be able to ask you to make the first draft.
It’s very hard to put into words what we love about your photos… but we’ll try! We love that they are of real moments, capturing the quirks and details that make people and relationships unique. We love the raw emotion you capture, not just people smiling but pride, nerves, disbelief, triumph, love, joy, hope. We like the element of surprise in your photos from unusual angles and varied techniques. We love that some photos look so spectacular black and white; they really simplify your focus, they aren’t just black and white copies.
Lastly, when we looked at your albums for other people, we wanted to know what was happening at that moment. Now when we look through our photos from you, we do know what was happening in that moment; they tell our story.
Thank you again Jamie. Our wedding was everything we hoped it would be, and you captured it so beautifully.
Wishing you continued success and happiness in the future,
Gemma and Harvey Robinson.
