I'm April James, a portrait and intimate wedding photographer, servicing the Long Island/Metro New York, New Jersey, Philadelphia, and DMV Areas. 

I'm addicted to photographing the fine details, as well as catching the candid, unscripted moments and creating memories of them. I work primarily with families, newly engaged couples, and those looking to host romantic and intimate wedding ceremonies. 

When I'm not taking pictures, I'm being a mom to 3, step-mom to 2 more, a wife, a paper-crafter, and binge watcher of Downton Abbey, Grace & Frankie, The L Word, and Stranger Things, to name a few.
