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...

| Dan and Amanda get married at...huh? Razzoo's? |

Yep, it's true, it's true. Dan and Amanda, two people who have become our friends as a result of meeting and working with them got married at...


It was like 104 degrees outside, but with a nice breeze coming off a pond, and some great shade trees, it was a really cool wedding!

Here's the man of the hour, Dan Goldberg. Wonder how long it took them to stack up all of these bottles?


And Amanda. Have you ever seen a happier bride?


Dan's not a guy to let his emotions come out very much. So I am pretty sure right here, there was just a speck of dust in his eye. Yeah, that's it...a speck of dust. In his eye. Yeah. That's it.


Dan's late father was a Marine, so to honor his memory, Dan had arranged for these two to escort Amanda down the aisle. Like the guards at Buckingham Palace, I think the Marines are supposed to not show any expression and be totally committed to business. Like this.


It wasn't their fault that they had to get around a wise-cracking photographer.


Mr. and Mrs. Goldberg.


No, Dan! No, Dan! Don't do it!!! Too late...


A sign of things to come...


OK, let's check out some of the cool details. Love the cake.


Notice the cake has two wedding rings on top. They are replicas of their real wedding rings.


That everyone thought were beautiful.


Amanda's bouquet was totally awesome. It fit the festive mood to a tee.


These three were horsing around for one of their friends with a camera. About that time the lady on the right sheepishly noticed that ol' Ninja here was nearby. Wonder what she was thinking? 'Well, it's not like this will show up on a blog or anything...'


No, Dan! No, Dan! Don't do it!!! Too late...


Can't believe she'd dance with him after that.


Here, Dan and his lovely Mom from Kansas share a trip down memory lane.


While I can take some credit for the cool photo, Dan gets credit for the idea. Everyone knows I do shoe shots at every wedding, right? Well, this idea almost makes up for the painted toes. Almost.


A flashlight? No, Dan! No, Dan! Don't do it!!! Too late...


Well, all's well that ends well. Thanks Dan and Amanda, for letting me be part of one of the coolest and most creative weddings I have ever shot. We'll no doubt hear more from them in future posts!
