Hi! My name is Jim Miller, and my wife Jacki and I own jimmages - contemporary wedding photography.

This is my blog, and I am so glad that you found me.

How to pronounce jimmages? Well, you could pronounce it jimmages, as in rhyming with images. You could also pronounce it Jim Images. And for those upscale clients, please let me give you the phonetic pronunciation...Zhim AH Zhay.

Just kidding. Pronounce it any way that you like. That's not important. What is important is that hopefully I just made you smile. That's my job you know... to make you smile at the wedding, to make you smile when you see your photographs, and to make you smile (OK, slightly grin) when you get your bill!

We are located in Sherman, TX, but we photograph amazing weddings all over the southwestern United States. My style might best be described as resembling photojournalism. That is to say, I photograph real events as they are really happening... staying on the DL and not interrupting every moment by asking you to stop, look at me, and have you give me an awkward forced looking smile.

But the truth is, we do need some formal portraits, so it's not completely a photojournalistic approach. I tell my clients that I do enough posed portraits to make their parents happy, but mostly I am capturing the real moments of the most important day of their life, which makes them very happy. So what is this style called? I dunno...it hasn't been around long enough to have a 'name' yet, so I just call it contemporary wedding photography. Sounds kind of cool, no?

So welcome aboard the jimmages blog. Feel free to look around, make yourself at home, and leave a comment or two.

And please feel free to shoot me an email or give me a call if you have questions. I have packages that will fit pretty much any reasonable budget. I am a really low key guy, I love what I do, and I get really excited when I see in a client's eyes that I have delivered more than they expected. Because sometimes smiles show up in the coolest ways...

| My Mentor |

Every successful wedding photographer that I know has one thing in common... a mentor who helped them at some point in their careers.  My mentor is the great Ron St. Angelo.  Ron was the official photographer for the Dallas Cowboys for 25 years.  I spent many a Sunday afternoon working on the sidelines with Ron honing my photography skills.  Shooting at the speed of an NFL game is great preparation for the non-stop action of a wedding!  Well, Ron has caused quite a buzz with his new book 'The Greatest Team Ever'.  It chronicles in pictures the rise of the early nineties Cowboys who won 3 Super Bowls in 4 years.

I was extremely humbled to be the photographer Ron chose to capture and document his release launch at Texas Stadium.

| Sean and Jennifer at Lantana Lodge |

One of the places where I really enjoy shooting is Lantana Lodge, in Pilot Point.  It's a really neat place that overlooks Lake Ray Roberts.  It has a great gazebo, and while you're actually at the gazebo, you can flip a coin into the lake, it's so close.

I had the great pleasure of photographing Sean and Jennifer there.  It was a lovely sundown wedding, as many of them are at Lantana Lodge.  The sun sets right across the lake, making for a beautiful setting.

Sean looks ready to enjoy some of Lantana's killer bar-b-que

| Robby and Karen |

Robby and Karen got married at the very beautiful Trammel Crow Art Center in downtown Dallas.  It was a gorgeous day, if a little windy.  But the wind is the friend of a true photojournalist, because it makes for fun opportunities.  Once the party moved inside, it was a very plush affair.

| Todd and Sara |

One of the things I really enjoy is
 getting to know my clients while we are out having fun shooting engagement photographs.Todd and 
Sara drove up from Dallas to do some contemporary urban shots.  It was a blast, and I was very happy with the way they turned out.
