What Amazing family photos! Thank you so much Kim, for sharing your Amazing Talent, passion, professionalism and creativity with our family! It was a true joy and a wonderful experience.
My fiancé and I booked Kim James as our wedding photographer in a sort of impulsive way, slightly unusual then the approach many couples take. After a brief phone call and within less than a week Kim was taking our engagement photos. Regardless of the short time span and lack of customary meetings and getting to know you conversations..., working with Kim has been such a great experience. Kim is very professional, super helpful and flexible in meeting our needs. No detail is overlooked by Kim! Her sense of adventure and creative mind makes her fun to work with and guarantees GREAT pictures that go beyond simple portraits to become true pieces of art. Kaitlin Bauer
Kim James is not only a photographer. She is a mother, friend, leader, writer, painter, chef, florist (I could keep going).... and she is amazing at all of it. Yet her raw ability to see so much life through the lens makes her talent unmatched against any other photographer. It takes someone very gifted to take any ordinary subject and transform it into a hundred beautiful pictures. Kim James has this gift. Not to mention she is smart as a whip and so much fun to work with!
Kim James is such an incredible person/photographer! I was so blessed to have her shoot my wedding last summer (2009) in Lake Almanor. Who would have thought a photographer that amazing lived in the area!? Her strategy and vision is brilliant... from a engagement session, to get comfortable with each of us (the couple) so she knows what she is up against for the wedding day, to walking you step by step of what to expect day of. I even had her do a private boudoir session with me alone the week before to give to my “new” husband as a wedding gift. Her turnaround time is wonderful and her pricing is very fair…I could not have ask for a better person to do the job! Heather Johnson-Walker
Where do I begin. I saw Kim's work for the first time when I saw my friend Jamie's wedding photos. Right then I knew I wanted to book her for my wedding. Kim shot our engagement photos first. It was such a nice touch to meet Kim and get comfortable with each other before the wedding day. She is very through in making sure you get all the special shots you want on your "big day". She is very professional in all aspects of her work. We all (the whole family) fell in love with her. The wedding went flawlessly! Kim's photos depict her passion. The intimate moments of the very special times in one’s life. The images she has taken are priceless and stand the test of time. Captured moments that the camera remembers even after our minds get a bit fuzzy.
I have had the privilege of working with Kim on a third occasion, with my horse Grace.
I nearly lost my horse when she fell to colic in 08'. She is now fully recovered and Kim shot Grace and I in beautiful Susiun, CA. Those images that depict our bond will remain long after Grace is gone.
I look forward to using Kim multiple times in the years to come. Family photos, and possibly maternity.......may be in the future! I feel very honored to have worked with Kim, and enjoy her photography; she really is quite an Artist!!

I have known Kim for many years now, as I went to school with her oldest son. When I got married in the summer of 2007 I asked Kim if she would help with the organizing part of my wedding since I already had chosen a photographer. Kim took some pictures anyway because she was just beginning to build her business. I wish now that I had chosen her to do all my wedding pictures as the ones she took were ten times better than the others. Since then Kim has only continued to grow in her creativity. I have used her for family photos and pictures of my little girl. She is such a talented woman and I highly recommend her for any line of photography because she has the capability to adapt to anything! Kelley Tagudin
Kim James has photographed my wedding, family and pregnancy. With each, she has captured the emotion of the day and beauty of each subject with amazing images. She made me feel beautiful and sexy when I was 8 1/2 months pregnant! My wedding photos are incredible and look like they belong in a magazine. Kim has captured moments with my baby that I will cherish forever. Kim James is the best.
I met Kim about two years ago when she shot mine and my husband's wedding. After our initial meeting, we were sold! Not only did Kim produce amazing photos, she was absolutely wonderful to work with. The only bad thing about Kim's work, is trying to figure out which photo NOT to frame! We will definitely utilize Kim's services in the future, as her photos are beyond wonderful and look as though they are straight out of a magazine!! Jamie Cannon
Hey Kim! Just got the photos, THANK YOU! They are SO amazing :) I knew they were going to be great but these are beyond amazing, you really have a talent! I can't wait to show them to Ethan. We will be in Susanville after Christmas, if it works for everyone we should get the Rhodies together :) Thank you again! Lauren & Ethan Andrews
Hi Kim James, Zac and I have looked thru all our wedding images last night, they were incredible, money well spent! Thank you so much for your talent and for your hard work. We have also checked your blog out - we loved the one you have chosen for your banner(?). And other images of mine - I must say that I am shy to see myself out there like that but if you think they are the good reference materials of your works of art, i would like to help you that way. I hope you are doing well and your family as well - I am doing good. Wish you a warm and happy holiday, Song

I miss you already! We couldn't have been more lucky to have you as our photographer -- and now friend. It was a pleasure working with you and you truly made things as easy as they could be. You will probably notice that the number of hits to your blog has probably sky-rocketed a bit over the last 24 hrs.
We absolutely love the pics that you have posted and cannot wait to see the rest. We even said to each other last night that if these were the only pics that we got, we'd be totally happy. The dozen or so capture so much!
Thank you again!!
