James Netz Photography proved multiple times while working with us how astounding not only his amazing gift in photography is, but his desire to quickly build rapport, flexibility in meeting our individual needs, guidance and support in our wedding as a whole, and simply his passion for photography. When looking for a photographer to capture our wedding day, we were looking for someone who focused on our needs and was not bound by time, distance, number of shots, etc. We wanted someone who could capture not just pictures, but a “story;” A story of family, a story of a couple moving on to their next journey of life. James Netz and his team did this and more. He captured “our story” through both photography and videography with professionalism, creativity, fun, and laughter. With his number one goal to capture “our story” our photos and wedding video will be cherished for generations to come. In addition, he had the brilliant idea of not only capturing our wedding, but doing a post-wedding session instead of an engagement session, as we we live out of state. This allowed him to capture our lives as a couple in Colorado. Without question, he made travel plans with his wife to come out to Colorado, again, proving to us that James Netz Photography is not just about “photography” but about creating memories. He told “our story” and the results through the photography and the videography were absolutely astonishing. My husband and I highly recommend James Netz Photography for any of your needs. We cannot thank him enough for capturing such an amazing part of our lives. Mary Beth & Jake

James Netz Photography did an absolutely wonderful job with our daughter's Senior Pictures. Jim took the time to decipher Taylor's personality and capture her unique qualities and tell a story through the photographs! We had many options to choose from with unique settings. Taylor had a wonderful time during her photo shoot, and the relaxed environment created the best senior pictures I have ever seen! Thank you Jim.... we love you! Natalie Flood
I want to thank Jim for the wonderful photos of my family. I've been a commercial photographer for 30 plus years and this is the first time we've had a family portrait taken. Jim just nailed it. His creativity, command of his media, great personality and grace made the experience incredible. On a more personal note, this past couple of years hasn't been easy for my family as I have battled cancer. Jim not only took great photos of my family, he gave us a gift that means more to me than just about anything. His support and friendship are overwhelming. He truly is wonderful friend!
"James has been a treasure! I don't recommend anyone to my wedding couples unless I have full confidence in both their skills AND their service. It's been a couple of years and he has delivered every time. He takes time to get to know the couple and can then capture the vision and essence the way THEY want it. Because I'm so picky, my recommended contact list for all types of wedding services is very short. James is always at the top of that list. It's great knowing James will be the photographer for my weddings. It's one less thing for everyone to worry about." Lakewoods Resort Events Director
"We planned our entire wedding ceremony and celebration weekend via e-mail and telephone, including our photographer. Of course we were a little nervous about never having met Jim, but when I spoke to him on the phone, he sounded so excited about our ceremony. When Jim arrived on the island a couple of hours before the ceremony, there was no unfamiliarity. After just a few brief introductions, it was like we had an old friend taking our pictures". "And then there were the pictures! Amazing! Jim took our personalities and complimented them in every photo with nature bursting all around us. We were excited to see the proofs, but never expected such fantastic compositions". "I would recommend Jim, for any function, in a heartbeat". Rhonda Bergstrom
"Jim was the perfect photographer for our engagement photos and our wedding. We got a lot of really great shots! He worked really well with our large wedding party and the craziness of our families. We are extremely happy with the amount of time and dedicated service that we received from him, we could tell that he really cared. I am recommending Jim to all of my girlfriends who have upcoming weddings". Laura and Tony Elsmore, Plymouth, MN

"A short time ago, my boss asked me to design our new executive conference room. We wanted our visitors to see what Minnesota was like in all of her stunning seasons. We were extremely fortunate to find a local and gifted artisan named James Netz. His photographic ability to capture the essence of Minnesota's natural beauty is without parallel. Truly, James wildlife and seasonal vistas that are displayed proudly do not merely grace our walls, but their beholder's as well. Photographs from Minnesota, artisan from Minnesota, the only logic name for the conference room was the Minnesota Room". "James not only took the photographs, but he worked with me on the frames and matting. I would propose that anyone who wanted to work with a talented and gifted artisan to see James". Marsha Stenquist, Executive Secretary St. Paul MN.
"James Netz is certainly a name to watch in the area of Midwest Outdoor Photography. His use of color, lighting, and composition transports you into the actual experience in which the photograph was taken. From the comfort of my home office, I can quickly find myself in the beautiful and serene surroundings of the great northern outdoors". Dave Morris, Maple Grove MN.
"Jim's professional, yet friendly, personality yielded absolutely beautiful and creative photographs that our family will treasure for years. He did a splendid job of orchestrating the photo shoot with a large number of subjects, while making an otherwise tedious event thoroughly enjoyable". Stacey Gruett and Marc Kruger, Elk River MN.
