Shortly after getting married to his wife Jessica, they traveled the world working side by side. Jessica is a professional makeup artist, hair stylist, food stylist, and producer.

When not behind the lens, Gregory is a family man. The most important thing to Greg is his family. He enjoys spending all of his time with his wife Jessica, their two beautiful and very energetic children Piper and Hayden, their crazy German Shepherd Keira, and their two little Wiener dogs Sebastian and Dexter. They love going on their family adventures and creating memories by filming their experiences for their children’s YouTube Channel. “We by far are not YouTubers but we have fun creating our little videos.” The James family also loves just spending time at home hanging out having fun with the family and having their Saturday night cookout and movie night with lots of popcorn and candy.
