Old Photo Restoration

James Kennedy Photography offers a high-quality restoration service for old photographs and albums.

We can take your old photos or negatives and scan and restore them, often making them better than they were when they were first developed! Your photos are then returned to you in an online gallery for you to download, share and enjoy!

Better still, we are able to take old albums, scan and restore the photos, and then produce a stunning modern album. What better way to celebrate an anniversary or birthday, or just protect your photos for the future? We specialise in wedding photography, but love to work on all sorts of different projects too.

Our service is personal, bespoke and highly skilled. Every photo is carefully and lovingly restored by a professional photographer. As such we usually only take orders for up to 50 photos at a time, though it may be possible to offer more if you enquire.
