About Us

James and Karala Northey are a husband and wife team. We are James D. Northey Photography. We capture images showing the relationships, joy, love, beauty, intimacy, action, and romance of your wedding day. Paying attention to the details and capturing the unexpected as well as the planned for events is done with sensitivity, heartfelt intuition, and fun.

We both have a natural manner that only a lifetime of experience brings --- James as a photographer (doing weddings on his own since high school) and Karala as a fine artist and more recently (the last 10 years) as a photographer and digital artist. We photograph weddings because we love to. It is hard to imagine doing anything else together.

Creativity, emotional impact, photojournalism, traditional portraiture, available light, a playfulness when appropriate, professional practices, artistry, use of cutting edge digital technology (35mm Canon and online partners), black and white, sepia tone, color, fine art archival reproduction and giclee printing, film if preferred (medium format Bronica), unlimited image capture, and creative pricing describe our friendly and personal service.

Each getting-to-know-you session and wedding is uniquely photographed with the desire to exceed your expectations and to provide you with your love story -- a story to be treasured for generations. Image magazines and books, CD's, DVD and online slide shows, and websites are among the variety of ways for viewing the images captured. We even do emailable short movies that can be forwarded. Online shopping carts are also available for ordering prints, watercolor notecards, framed wall folios and portraits, and albums.

"Your Love Story" and "The Day in a Life" fine art coffee table books may be printed by GraphiStudio, Cornerstone, Leather Craftsmen, and other quality book binders. Karala utilizes her design background to create truly one of a kind magazine style flush mounted books and other things not yet thought of. If you prefer tradition she also works with Art Leather and Jorgensen Albums to create unique matted albums in many sizes and materials.

By scheduling an appointment we will listen and brainstorm with you so we can hear your hopes and create the wedding photography of your dreams.
