Kendall - City Hall Cardiff I am so glad that I found Jim. He was always very prompt in replies and very knowledgeable. His suggestion to use confetti (I hadn't planned as couldn't use at venue) in nearby gardens was fantastic and I'm so glad I listened to Jim as these are some of my favourite photos. Jim made everyone feel comfortable and got the photos back to us so quickly! I would highly recommend him to anyone!

Sharon - City Hall Cardiff Highly recommended for the outstanding photographs taken by Jim (Eyes2me photography). Jim was patient, friendly and very professional nothing was to much trouble for him. If you need a photographer look no further he is the best.

Natasha - City Hall Cardiff We could not have asked for a more patient and friendly photographer. From the moment we booked right through to the wedding Day and after Jim has been excellent. No one felt pressured into ‘posing’ or having a photograph taken, the amount of photos we received were brilliant and the best quality. Jim managed to capture moments we couldn’t even dream of getting. Highly recommend 10/10
