The story behind Hendrix

Hello! I'm James Howarth

I'm a Newcastle based wedding and engagement photographer with an affinity for preserving moments in time. I specialise in capturing once-in-a-lifetime moments as naturally as possible. To me, your comfort comes first, and the photos will take care of themselves - because a genuine smile is SO much better than a forced one.

"My husband and I recently got married and chose Mr Hendrix photography for our special day! James was so professional and so chill from the get go, we felt super comfortable with him and he went above and beyond to get the best shots! We also had our engagement session with james and the images turned out just perfect. We will definitely be using Mr Hendrix in the future and recommending to all our family and friends! Thank you James, it was an absolute pleasure to have you capture all of our special moments."

"Mr Hendrix is such a groovy guy and a world of fun. We still have guests commenting on how much they loved the photographer we had at our wedding and the photos really show that. The enjoyment and laughter we experienced on our special day was all beautifully and organically captured and that’s what we love about Mr Hendrix and the approach he takes to his photography. Even if you’re not the most comfortable in front of the camera, Mr Hendrix is such a professional that none of that translates across into the photos he takes. He just has such a way with the camera and directions, and that is why he is the guy you want capturing your special moments! We honestly have so many incredible photos and we cannot thank James enough. We look forward to being able to book in family shoots in the future, when we’re hopefully blessed of turning our family of 2 into a family of 3! Thank-you for everything James. Love, the Taylor’s xx"

"James James James!! Where do we even start?
What a brilliant photographer and an incredible business you have made.

Wedding planners, if you're in any doubt about who can capture your most precious memories, don't look any further. One stalk of an Instagram feed and I was sold!! The natural look, the warmth and the personal touch of each photo, ughhh to die for!

We booked James with quite a while to go to the wedding, we had many phone calls along the way where he definitely helped a very anxious and inexperienced bride out!!

The professionalism on the day was perfectly on point, absolutely smashing goals with our other vendors and making the day feel so natural and flowy. Both photographers were helpful at keeping myself and the groom in the loop and making us feel comfy in front of the camera.

With a day that goes faster than any day humanly possible, I'm so overly joyed that we had this duo there! Thanks guys for helping us feel beautiful and being the best vibe, you guys made the day especially cracking! The jokes, the compliments, the enjoyment of smashing down some quick food while getting some pictures taken all memories that we will cherish.

Thank you for capturing our big day, and not just our day, our moments. The dearest moments in time that we can't ever re-live. You and Kate truly picked up our day and kept it in your stride! With any last minute whoopsies and changes, any unsuspecting opportunities for pictures, the particularly large list of must photos and any particularly curious bridal party members wanting to take pictures on your camera you guys had something for everyone and everything!! You kept it amazingly fun and captured some brilliant pictures.

After seeing those few sneak peaks merely a few days after the wedding, it really helped us relive a day that was such a blur. They are perfect in every way and we are so looking forward to seeing the rest of the pictures!"

"James made our very first professional photo session so memorable! He offered guidance on what to do but not rigid instructions which is exactly what we needed for some candid, relaxed and truly special photos. He was relaxed, accomodating and has a truly creative eye even though he was in a new location with my two young children who weren’t being the most cooperative subjects!"


Lauren & Josh

"Couldn't recommend Mr Hendrix Photography enough!
From day one, James was the easiest person to deal with. Our wedding changed date, location and style and nothing phased him. James turned up on the day relaxed and made us both feel very comfortable in front of the camera. He mingled with our families and never felt out of place. He always replied to our messages/emails quickly and our 'sneak peek' photos were in our inbox before we knew it!!"

"James did our engagement and wedding photos for us a few months ago and I could not recommend him enough!!!
His bubbly personality made our shoots comfortable and so much fun! We had the absolute best experience with him and for such an affordable price too!
The photograph’s came out incredible and we didn’t have to wait very long before we got to see them.
Look no further, as James is your man! He fits right in and makes your day just that extra bit special.
Thanks so much again James! You are truely the best!"

Oh my gosh!!

I have absolutely no idea how we got so lucky to come across yourself but these photos are everything. It’s all that I dreamt of.
From the moment I spoke to you on the phone to seeing you guys at seacliff, it was truly one of the best decisions we made for our wedding.

James, thank you so so much. These photos will hold such a special place in our hearts and we have you to thank! You’re a magician and a serious talent.

Also the presentation box was bloody amazing!

I hope we cross paths again one day and when we do, I owe you a drink. A million thank you’s!

Mr + Mrs Bateman 😊

P.S I’m sad, this is slightly the end haha but I’ll tag you in all my photos for the many many years to come!!"
