Hello! My name is James Stewart and I'm the owner / lead photographer for Blacksuit FM Photography. I am a native (born and raised) to the local Ft. Walton Beach / Destin area and still love the view! I gained a lot of my experience in the industry as an assistant for a local pro wedding photographer after college, then started getting a lot of requests from friends and other referrals on my own. I officially started my business at the end of 2007 going into 2008 and have enjoyed seeing it grow!
One of the things I enjoy about being a wedding photographer is that I get the honor of being a part of the biggest day of someone's life at that moment. Being able to capture the emotion of a moment in time when someone is so happy, enabling them to be able to look back years from now and relive that same moment is very satisfying. Being a professional graphic designer also, I believe, allows me to use that skill set in my photo editing and package development in ways others can't.
