Meet the team James

Meet the team James Harvey captures picture-perfect moments Your Family Realtors Team is on a quest to capture our best moments and share them with Land & More readers. In doing so, we have found an enthusiastic partner in photographer James Harvey. “We live in a visual world and need—want—to illustrate our moments and remember our joys,” says James. “My job is to capture those moments and tell the story.” Ever since a favorite aunt placed a camera in his hands at age 17, the Elgin-based photographer has been encapsulating life through his lens. His first subject was his high school sweetheart. Later, when he joined the U.S. Army, a portion of his job included photographing construction projects and other military endeavors. Now, more than 40 years later, James has built a career out of his passion, recording special moments like birthdays and weddings as well as documenting corporate events and project sites. “I love the creativity and variety in my work. Every day is different,” says James. James has perfected the art of drawing out personalities and revealing them in his photographs—and has demonstrated that talent while documenting Your Family Realtors Team events at Windy City Bulls games (see pages 2 and 20). He also helps corporate clients expand and grow their business with artistic photography. His specialties include headshots, portraits and advertising/marketing photo shoots. His current and past clients include the Elgin Racers International Basketball League team, Elgin Symphony Orchestra, City of Elgin, Village of Hanover Park, Bearco Management Co., Sherman Hospital, Ecker Center, Elgin Artspace Lofts, Grand Victoria Casino, Toyota, Ford and more. James’ job is to catch “the moment” as it’s happening, such as a newlywed couple’s first kiss. “I have to get it right the first time,” he explains. “After a special moment has passed, I can’t go back and redo it.” To learn more about James Harvey Photography, visit James can also be reached at or by calling 630-965-6215.
