About Jim

Jim Papillo Photographer, West Hartford, CT

It’s all about story telling.  Wedding days can be 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 wedding day 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 weddings are 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 wedding a unique and wonderful event.

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

I am discrete during your ceremony and make sure all eyes are on you and not me.  My editing style is bright and full of life, giving you photographs you will want to show off to all your friends (and please do!). 

I am based in West Hartford, but happy to travel and would love to hear from you.

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