James Patrick Photography Team

One of the key differentiators between James Patrick Photography and other service providers is our collaborative team of passionate and experienced professionals.

It would be hard to find a more talented and qualified “one stop shop” of professionals to handle all of your creative needs.

We work closely with our clients, helping to fully understand the specific needs and goals of the projects we have the privilege to be a part of. From there we bring together the necessary personnel to help with photography, video, talent scouting, location scouting and permitting, graphic design, art direction, hair and makeup, wardrobe styling and more.

Our primary goal is a dedication to achieving great results while adding value for our clients. Meet some of our key team members below!
