About Jim

Jim Papillo Photographer, West Hartford, CT It’s all about story telling.  Important events typically involve a whirlwind of emotion, laughter, and a little bit of chaos.  I document all of these moments because I think it’s what makes every event so wonderful and unique.

I’m fascinated by people and how they interact – with their eyes, their hands, their conversations – and photography gives me the opportunity to observe and capture all of it.

As it is with life, all the best stories evolve organically.  As much as events can be well-rehearsed and neatly prepared, they all share moments of spontaneity and surprise.  These moments of pure unfiltered emotions coupled with unconstrained jubilation are what make each and every event so wonderful to photograph.

My individual style means that I’m commissioned by those wanting stylish, relaxed and natural photographs with a minimum of posing and those seeking a more artistic documentary approach to their event photography. 

I am based in West Hartford, Connecticut but happy to travel and would love to hear from you!  You can click the "CONTACT" tab in the navigation bar above to send me a message.

I use professional grade Nikon and Leica cameras and lenses on all shooting assignments.
