About me.

Why work with me?
Seeing the beauty and capturing the perfect moment is an art.
It’s what I do best.

Welcome to the captivating world of Georgie James Photography, where the art of seeing beauty and capturing perfect moments takes centre stage. I’m Georgie James, your friendly country gal with a dash of big city style, ready to weave your love story into a visual masterpiece.

Growing up amidst the rustic allure of rural life in Rutherglen, my childhood unfolded on a farm, surrounded by the breathtaking beauty of nature. Despite a fairly long stint in Melbourne’s city life, the call of rural living brought me back after a whirlwind of urban escapades.

Married to Ricky, a winemaker, we’ve crafted a love story spanning almost two decades. Our picturesque farm just outside Rutherglen is home to our family and together we own and run James & Co. Wines, a stylish cellar door in the Main Street of Rutherglen, showcasing our commitment to creating beautiful wines and offering authentic country hospitality. I also run By George Photo, a photography brand seamlessly blending rural warmth with urban sophistication in commercial storytelling.

Now, let’s talk guilty pleasures! From an undeniable weakness for sugary treats, especially gelato, to a fondness for all things bubbly, with a particular weakness for sparkling wine, my heart beats in sync with the rhythmic cadence of the countryside.

As you embark on the quest to find your perfect wedding photographer match, know that I bring more than professional expertise—I bring a genuine love for life, a deep connection to rural Australia, and a warmth rooted in an understanding of the beauty in simplicity.

I’m not just a passionate wedding photographer; I’m a storyteller, crafting visual narratives that mirror the unique journey of each couple. My photography style is a harmonious blend of candid, natural, and documentary, celebrating authentic, heart-bending love.

Believing that wedding photography should authentically reflect the couple and their loved ones, my approach is easygoing and low-key, capturing spontaneous moments of laughter and loving gazes exchanged between partners. No awkward, unnatural poses—just a timeless documentation of your special day.

There’s a lot to think about when planning a wedding and putting together your team of A1 suppliers that will be there for you every step of the way. Rest assured, I am always ready to pass on recommendations and I’ve even got a list below to help you out.

Ready to embark on the enchanting journey of having your love story told through the lens of Georgie James Photography? Don’t hesitate—enquire now and let the magic begin! Request my price guide with no obligation and discover if we’re the perfect match to create everlasting memories together. Remember to include the date, along with relevant details such as location, and if possible, some information about your approximate wedding photography budget. Additionally, it would be great to include a few details about yourself!

Let’s talk about your big day


“Georgie was everything you could possibly want in a wedding photographer, if you can’t book her, invite her anyway because she’s a ton of fun! Not only has the quality of her work been fantastic, but so was her personality and presence on the day. She made us both so comfortable and relaxed that taking photos was fun and a real highlight of the day. If this wasn’t enough, Georgie came out the day before to get familiar with the location, run through the schedule to make sure the day would run smoothly and then made sure that we captured all the photos we wanted on the day before leaving. We couldn’t recommend Georgie more!”

– Taylor & Andy, October 2021

Wine Lovers Unite: Let's Take the Next Step!

Planning a wedding is a beautiful journey, and I’m here to make sure capturing those magical moments is as stress-free as possible. If you’ve got questions or just want to have a friendly chat about wedding photography (no obligation, promise!), I’m all ears!

I’ve had the pleasure of working with over 150 incredible couples, and I’ve found that a good old-fashioned chat is the best way to answer your wedding questions, ease your mind, and really connect. I’m here to guide you through the process.

If you’re up for it, let’s schedule a laid-back Google Meet to discuss all things wedding photography. I find it’s the perfect way to get to know each other, answer any burning questions you may have, and start envisioning how we can capture your love story. And if you’re local to Rutherglen or planning a nearby wedding, we can kick back at our James & Co. Wines cellar door on 136 Main Street – my husband and I are vignerons, and it’s the perfect spot to chat over a glass of our award-winning Sangiovese or a glass of our spectacular Sparkling Sangiovese Rosé.

Now, about your wedding location – I’m always up for an adventure! Whether you’re tying the knot in Rutherglen or somewhere else, count me in. Exploring new places is something I absolutely love, and I’m ready to capture the magic wherever your love story unfolds.

And hey, if you’re considering Rutherglen for your Wedstival weekend, our cellar door could be the ideal setting for a pre-wedding get-together or a post-wedding recovery. Picture this – our spacious and stylish cellar door, an outdoor cellar deck, a garden area, and a selection of our finest wines, local beers, and delightful mixed drinks like Aperol Spritz and G&Ts. We’ve even got the hookup for delicious local caterers who can whip up grazing boxes or pizzas for your guests.

So, let’s make your wedding photography journey a breeze! Drop me a message, give me a call, or let’s set up that Google Meet – I can’t wait to hear all about your plans and how we can create stunning memories together.

Make an enquiry here and we can get talking about your day!
