Creating consistently brilliant work takes a professional photographer who has both skill and a huge love of the job. You need to have both to shoot weddings because the work involves long hours and work conditions that are varying on so many levels. The venues, the weather, the lighting and the event format are changing for every job so you need to be on the ball to produce excellent work every time. You also need to love your job because it’s hard work both physically and mentally.
Tom’s personality seems to be just right for the job. He is a confessed romantic who talks about his wife Sarah like they just met. They have been together for more than two decades. If you read the blog post about how they met and he chased her until she agreed to go on a date you will know what a romantic soul this one is.
On top of that, he is a friendly, down-to-earth person who is an artistic storyteller who uses his camera to document love stories. You must like your photographer because they are with you all day long from getting ready to the “I Dos” and often right through until the last dance of the night. Tom is lovely, blends in with the crowd, knows when to take control and has a calming influence when it’s needed. You can see from his reviews online that he’s a genuinely likable guy who has probably seen and handled every wedding situation imaginable.

For 13 years Tom has been documenting glamorous weddings and was previously working as a beauty and portrait photographer. It was his mother who got him onto the path of photography that was his true calling in life. She gifted him a camera at the young age of 17 years old and the
rest was destiny. His work in the beauty photography genre gave him great experience and as soon as he attended a wedding he knew he had found his place in life.

Couples embracing under starry skies, intimate shots of architect lit at night and moody images of newlyweds in upmarket reception venues fill his galleries. There is even a lightning shot while a couple kisses each other. That is some wild skill right there!
Also the iconic veil shot. If a bride chooses to wear a long veil she surely wants that one image of the veil flying beautifully in the wind.
