Thom was the most amazing photographer for our wedding. He is so organized and planned out every spot at our venue for the best shots, which took a lot of pressure off of me, one less thing to worry about! The best part about Thom was how comfortable he made everyone feel. Our wedding parties had so much fun during our shoot because Thom is funny and just has such a cool vibe. Our wedding photos are seriously amazing, my husband and I were blown away. Some of my favorite shots were the ones with our wedding parties because you can tell that we are all genuinely laughing and having fun, rather than it being SO obvious that everyone is trying to act natural and fake laughing for the camera. Our photos are so beautiful sometimes I look at my album and I cant believe those pictures were of MY wedding! We were so lucky to have found Thom and I know for sure our day and our photos would have not been the same without him.
Thom Hooke was a dream come true! He was such a pleasure to work with and made it so much fun for Us and everyone involved. Our photos were unbelievable! I have gotten so many compliments on them how we all look like we are having so much fun, and it's because we actually were! Instead of the typical posed candid shots where your told to be laughing and not looking at the camera, We really were laughing and having fun! That is because Thom was so fun and made all my girls so comfortable it was so enjoyable. You can truely see it in our photos. Thom was extremely dedicated he even showed up before we did at the venue and had already scouted the whole place. I'm usually not one to show off pictures of myself or even post much on social media, but I can't help myself with these photos. I have shown them off so much and the reactions are so incredible! We could not be happier with our experience with Hooke photo and I recommend him one hundred percent.
I actually chose Thom based on his reviews and his relaxed journalistic style! He came highly recommended and definitely did not disappoint! I could not have been happier with a photographer. He was the photographer and not a service. I never had any trouble getting a hold of Thom and he answered the million questions and concerns I had even within days of our wedding. Thom arrived early, which was fantastic! Throughout the day I never worried once, as he was capturing every moment in real time. I would highly recommend to anyone who wants professionalism, vision, and a genuine care and respect from their photographer. He took almost 2,000 pictures! Because of Thom’s flexibility and creativity, I have pictures from my wedding that I'm going to cherish for years to come. We had such a great time, he was professional and so casual, everything was easy and stress-free. He was amazing!!
Thom was a dream to work with! Extremely professional, creative and personable. He knew how to make us comfortable in from on the camera and brought out the best versions of ourselves. Turn around time was quick and the quality was amazing. I would highly recommend Thomas Hooke Photography.

As a small boy, I would sit for hours watching my mother Hand-color Portraits for a local photographer, during the cold winter months, by a fire in our family room. From watching I began taking my pictures with my first box camera. Fast forward to a restless twenty-something working as a Microbiologist. Taking weddings and portraits on weekends because that was a lot more fun. Eventually I graduated an M.A. in Photography and started out in Chicago, by assisting numerous photographers, shooting everything from oranges to weddings. I have been fortunate to have worked all over the World
