My husband and I met months ago with Tom to plan out our big day. We were finally married this past weekend, and from the moment Tom arrived at our hotel in the morning to the last moments at the end of the night, he was nothing short of amazin...
g. He has SUCH a bright personality that it's impossible not to love him. All my guests said what a great job he did throughout the night and couldn't believe the energy he had. He is very accommodating with what you want done, and is open to new ideas as things come up throughout the day. There were many times I randomly grabbed my hubby for a hug or a kiss and Tom said "Freeze! That's a GREAT shot and I must make sure to get that for you!". He didn't miss a beat, and I simply cannot wait to see how our photos came out!!

erate in responses and helping you shape your desired outcome. Tom is sincere and demonstrates a special level of professionalism in his work. He is very friendly and easy to work with, he has the ability to make you feel extremely comfortable and adapt instantly to any situation. He will answer any questions and always provides meaningful answers or suggestions. From the moment you meet him he will make you a priority. He is very nice and is always open to any ideas you may have for your pictures. Plus in the end you receive amazing, high quality pictures from someone who is professional, punctual and responsive. I would recommend Tom to anyone and will definitely use him again in the future.

I’ve known Tom since high school and always knew he was a talented photographer and I'd be using him for my wedding. Everyone in my bridal party loved him and some friends have already booked him for their own events. He made us feel comfortabl...
e and kept us laughing. He brought a colleague Lucas with him the day of the wedding who was also friendly and very helpful - at one point he asked if I wanted a water and I was surprised and asked him to repeat himself three times. We just got all our photos back and they documented every single second. It was important to me to get ALL of the digital pictures - not just the selected or edited ones. They killed it - highly recommend!

h. His vibes are amazing. He listens as much as he gives direction. Most importantly... we LOVE his pictures!! He has such a great eye and makes sure to capture every location, every angle, every relationship - all the while allowing my wife and I to be completely comfortable and relaxed while we enjoyed the best day of our lives. I can't give enough stars and couldn't be more grateful.
We've not only recommended him to our friends but we look forward to working with Tom in the future as he captures the milestones of our lives for years to come <3.

The best decision we made while planning our wedding was hiring Tommy. We had a perfect day and Tommy captured it all for us to re-live the day and share the moments with our friends, family and future children. Tommy is an exceptional weddin...
g photographer. His photos are absolutely amazing, and he is extremely personable. From the first time we talked to Tommy, he made us feel comfortable and less anxious about choosing a photographer (it can be overwhelming planning a wedding). We had multiple conversations with Tommy and he was always open to questions and very informative about what a second photographer would add to both our budget and photos. He helped us plan out our day and helped us decide to get more pictures at the church which are some of our favorite photos! He even made sure we didn’t miss our sunset photos on the day of our wedding. Everyone at our wedding has told us that they loved our photographer and asked how long we have been friends with him. We found Tommy on thumbtack and had never met him before working with him for our wedding day, but he felt like another part of the wedding party. He is very professional and is not in your face at all but made us feel like a rock star or a princess snapping candids and continuously making us laugh throughout the day. He takes beautiful candids and can magically appear when he senses you want a picture of something. I am obsessed with our wedding photos and I still look through them when I’m having a bad day to bring a smile to my face (we got married over 3 months ago). We will definitely be asking Tommy to capture the memories for all our future life events. We can’t thank Tommy enough for capturing the priceless moments of our wedding day.

comfortable. A day when you want to let loose and be true to yourself and Tom made sure to capture all these emotions and experiences that each of us shared on that special day.

⭐️He gets it - captures emotion, celebration and love in EVERY shot!
Tom is a connected photographer - he doesn’t just get to knows his clients in a surface level - he gets to know people deeply and that helps him get kick-ass photos.
t believe the facial expressions he was able to get from our family and friends - he captured pure expressions of joy and fun - when I look at our pictures the day comes alive all over again... how amazing to relive those special moments - and moments I missed while eating or dancing or enjoying the day! From his pics, I feel like I was sitting at the table with my cousins...
💓His style is so amazing - the pictures were clear and beautiful, but it all looks so unposed - he clicks away and finds all of the ways to be completely unobtrusive while making sure he gets EACH IMPORTANT MOMENT- he’s magical!
🐼Super great with kids - he can catch them on the dance floor, encourage them to giggle, or capture the heartfelt moments you will cherish. He’s kind of like the kid-whisperer, I don’t think he ever said “cheese” and all of the pics were natural and relaxed ... with kids!
