About Jim

Jim Powell Photography has captured photographic memories since 1975 and is a full service photography studio located in Yuma, Colorado - approx. 130 miles east of Denver.

This is a Regional studio, set up to travel on location hundreds of miles away. Due to the amount of equipment I travel with and airport restrictions, I prefer to stay within 1,000 miles for driving purposes. Call to make arrangements, you will find them very fair as I do not charge mileage up to certain distances.

Weddings, Seniors and Families is my specialty. I am best known for natural outdoor photography with seniors, also "Studio Lighting" and "Bouquet Style" group arrangements for weddings and families. This arranging technique is unique, uniform and balanced, giving equal area to everyone in the group.

The studio is located in the center of Yuma's downtown business district, housed in a beautiful retored historic three level grand hotel built in 1912.


Setting Fees


1. Jim Powell Photography has FREE SETTING FEES and FREE MILEAGE (radius of 250 miles). For High School Senior Portraits all of your High School requirements are FREE OF CHARGE and deadlines are kept track of here, your choice of portraits for the yearbook, wallet for the school "Senior Class Composite", Newspaper and Slideshows are provided and you don't have to worry about a thing.

Some of the locations I travel to do senior portraits AT NO COST are: Grand Lake, Estes Park, Boulder, Breckenridge, Colorado Springs, Central City, Downtown Denver, Elitch Gardens and many other surrounding areas.

With senior portraits I take an average of 150 to 300 images for you to choose from. Since all setting fees and destinations are FREE...... If you dont like anything, it didnt cost you anything, but my bet is you will have a hard time choosing.

2. Additional Mileage, charged after above mentioned Free mileage, will be at .37/mile

3. Print pricing can be viewed under any "public gallery" photo session. Simply go into any session and click on any thumbnail and go to "View Price List"

The minimum balance of $720.00 is due the day of the wedding. NOTE! Not paying minimum final balance will delay posting your wedding pictures to this web site for viewing. Larger count packages can be ordered after being posted to this website and that balance is due upon order of that package.

From this moment you are in control of what you spend to remember your wedding day. Simply go online and pick out the quantity of images you choose to go into your wedding album. The keepsake wedding album contains 4" x 6" prints in acid free sleeves, which you retain forever.

    Wedding Day Picture Schedule: The Studio's policy is to have all posed pictures taken prior to the wedding service. This includes Bride and Groom, Wedding Party Groups and Family Groups. Natural light pictures will be taken during the ceremony and I will attend the reception to do guest candids and all necessary photographs to complete the full coverage of your wedding memories. If you have special requests or have concerns about our policy please contact the studio and make arrangements prior the wedding booking.

    "I just wanted to tell you how impressed I was watching you photograph Renee & Tyrell's wedding. I have been trying to get into photography for the last year and have had lots of fun with it. I would like to learn more and watching you was breath taking. I recognized your name as one of the web sites I had looked at before from shooting a wedding in Towanda, KS. They were awsome photos! Jim, if at anytime you come to Kansas again for a shoot, I would count it an honor if I could follow you, help you or whatever, just to be able to learn what I could from you. Again, it was great just to watch you shoot this wedding!"
