Wonderful photographer

Reviewed on 4/16/2014

William Thomas photography provided my husband and I with wonderful service. He and his assistant were extremely professional and very patient with our loud and excited family. They were very non-intrusive during the ceremony and the reception. He has a true creative eye, and... Read More our outstanding proofs are clear evidence of that. He makes sure to get more traditional portraits as well as artistic shots- perfect for the traditional mom and the non-traditional bride. Prompt, couterteous, and creative. He has done such a great job that my sister, brother, and cousin all had him as their wedding photographer. I would reccomend him to anyone.

AMAZING!!! Within 10 minutes of meeting Billy, my husband and I knew we couldn't wait to work with him. We were looking for a photographer who had a passion for photography and a love of what they did. That is exactly what we found, and so much more. Billy and his team are some... Read More of the most genuinely kind people and it made our day so enjoyable! Everything was so seamless and fun, even with a large bridal party and the first snow of winter!!! Billy and his team became part of the family that day, a month later everyone is still telling us how much they loved our photographers! We received our proofs so quickly, and can't stop showing them off to everyone. You will absolutely love working with William Thomas Photography!!

I cannot be more satisfied with Billy and his team. From day one of meeting him and Maggie in a coffee shop in the NYC, we knew we were in good hands. We got married on September 23rd, 2017 in Montauk, NY. Maggie and her team (her + 1 more photographer, +2 videographers)... Read More arrived early and started working right away. A great aspect about their packages is that they don't put a time limit on your day, you tell them when you want them there and they stay until the last dance! Maggie was an absolute superstar on the day of our wedding. She captured so many amazing moments, and was hustling around to every location scoping at great spots to capture. I will never forget her running up a hill (in 85 degrees weather) to meet the bridal party, just to get one more picture. We received our photos within 2 months after our wedding, received our thank you cards within a few days of choosing our photos and received our highlight video/wedding film within 3 months of our wedding day, and we are obsessed with everything!! We cannot recommend this group more!! We've gotten so many compliments on everything! Thank you for capturing our day in the most amazing ways possible!! XOXO

Going into the wedding planning process, there are numerous details and variables you must comprehensively research and ultimately decide upon. One component for us that was extremely easy to agree upon was the wedding photographer. William and his entire crew from start to... Read More finish were remarkably professional and an absolute pleasure to work with. From the very first instance we communicated with William, it was obvious how much he deeply cares about both his profession and the people he’s photographing. Our first in-person experience with William occurred during our engagement photo shoot and he did not disappoint. He was on time, organized, engaging, enthusiastic and incredibly fun to work with. And although the photo shoot occurred outdoors on one of coldest day of the year, the weather was not a problem whatsoever because William knew exactly where and when he wanted the pictures to be taken and, due to his organizational and people skills, he made a 3-hour photo shoot feel like a few seconds. Once we received the engagement photos back from him, we learned another couple of things about William. First, him and his team are hard workers who promptly get photographs back to you in a timely fashion. Secondly, not only are the pictures beautiful and elegantly done, but his attention to detail and eye for unique perspectives are just some of the reasons why William stands out from other photographers. Leading up to our wedding, I cannot even begin to tell you how many times he told us to reach out to him if we had any questions relating to the whole wedding planning process. A few weeks before the actual wedding day, we talked with William on the phone to go over the schedule and details of the entire wedding day. Everything we discussed perfectly came to fruition on our wedding. William and his entire team were on time at each location throughout the day. We got every picture we wanted and then some. And while you hear about so many weddings where the bride and groom feel overwhelmed with the number of pictures that are taken, we can honestly say we did not feel that way in the least bit. Just like the engagement photo shoot, William and his team knew precisely how many and where pictures needed to be taken, as well as who needed to be in them (and believe me, my wife had an extensive list of people combinations). Finally, when it came to the reception, we did not remember even seeing William and his entire team (two photographers, two videographers and one assistant) more than a handful of times. They knew how to spatially organize themselves and work the room so that my wife and I did not feel consumed or distracted with pictures and videos being taken. Bottom line: William and his team are phenomenal. We cannot recommend William highly enough and can personally guarantee you will not be disappointed.

Can there be more than 5 stars to give!??!!? William (Billy) was the most amazing, caring, kind and genuine person I have ever worked with! From our first face to face meeting, Billy gave off such positive vibes. He truly listens to your requests, and is an amazing artist! My... Read More husband hadn't met Billy prior to our engagement shoot. He made us feel so comfortable. We are not photo people and typically steer clear of being in the limelight, however, our shoot was easy going. He made it feel more of a friendly gathering, than a photography shoot. His demeanor puts you at ease, which makes for genuine photos. His eye is amazing, and our pictures are unbelievably beautiful. His entire team are professionals and we cannot say enough great and positive things about our experience with William Thomas Photography at our wedding. Billy is an honest person, and will be upfront with you from the beginning. What you see is what you get. I would pay top dollar again and again for his work! He is an amazing photographer and person!

Maggie and Mike were incredible from start to finish! When we first met with Maggie, she was so nice, organized and very laid back. Maggie did our engagement photos at astoria park, and we loved every second about it! My husband is not really photogenic, but Maggie made us feel... Read More so at ease and relaxed. On our wedding day, Mike and Maggie were on time, and got right to work. They both have such talent and vision with photos! Maggie and Mike didn't pressure us with photos during the reception, but told us ahead of time when they were going to take us to the side for a few pictures. We were able to attend cocktail hour and only missed ten mins of the reception. They were there for every photo we wanted. We are so grateful to have went with Billy and his team! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our wedding day amazing and a day we both will never forget!

William and the entire team made our wedding experience nothing short of personal, stress free & smooth from our engagement shoot throughout our entire wedding. They were prompt with communication prior and after our wedding, made us feel comfortable and really take pride in... Read More their work. Many of our guests said it was so nice to have photographers that weren't constantly stopping the party to take photos.

We first met Billy when he was photographing a close friend’s wedding. He had a positive, calm, and warm energy (a true benefit on the day-of a wedding when things leading up to the ceremony are crazy!) and he was totally unobtrusive. But when we saw the way he was able to... Read More capture the love that was in the room throughout our friend’s wedding and the unique relationships to the couple, we were amazed. Another dear friend and her husband immediately hired him for their wedding the next year. When it came time for planning our own special day, Billy was the only photographer on our list. Billy was already booked on the day of our wedding, but had us meet with his associate, Marguerite (Maggie) Pintauro, who was at our other friends’ weddings as Billy’s second photographer. Maggie was wonderful from our first meeting. She had Billy’s same cool energy, had a great portfolio, and clearly wanted us to have the best photos. We are big theater fans and getting pictures in the theater district was important to us. As the theater district and Times Square are neighbors, this meant a lot of outdoor shots, dodging traffic and tourists. A stressful situation under normal circumstances, forget about being photographed as you navigate the crowds. Maggie was a pro, as was Mike, who was assisting Maggie during our engagement shoot and again at the wedding. We were having so much fun, our engagement shot turned into a 3-hour event; neither Maggie nor Mike said anything as we came up with meaningful spot after meaningful spot where we wanted a photograph. Our wedding was in Connecticut and was a 9-hour event, not including the pre-event photos that Maggie and her team captured and the 1-hour plus family photos we did pre-ceremony. The wedding also included a lot of live performances, including a 10-song cabaret during Cocktail Hour, a sing-along at dinner, and a 2-hour piano bar/open mic after party. Maggie and her team were with us throughout, capturing the amazing moments from the day (scripted and not). People kept saying to us, “Your photographers seem to be everywhere.” Reviewing the amazing shots on the online gallery, it’s clear that Maggie and Mike were indeed everywhere, forever preserving special memories and moments. When we found out we were selected to appear in the NYTimes Wedding Announcements, we immediately went to our amazing selection of photos from our engagement shoot with Maggie. So now for all time, Maggie, William Thomas Photography, and our wedding are forever linked. We couldn’t be happier with the association.
