Full Description
Hate having your picture taken or simply don't want your wedding to be turned into a photo shoot? I offer a discrete and candid approach to capturing your wedding day. No awkward poses or endless group shots. Each wedding is different and by letting your day unfold naturally I can capture those small personal moments which are unique to your wedding. To really tell the story of your day you'll need a photographer who is there for the whole thing. I don't have limited hours packages or go home straight after the first dance. I start 3 hours before the ceremony and stay until at least 10pm, usually later. From morning Prosecco to grandma on the dance floor - I want to be there to capture it all.

Wonderful!
Tom is the one of the most polite, friendly and discreet people I’ve ever met. Right from our initial meeting I just knew I wanted him to capture our day! He is very accommodating and doesn’t make you stand posing for hours! He was so discreet at our wedding I sometimes forgot he was there but he produced some of the most beautiful photographs of our day and captured all the right moments. I would highly recommend having Tom as your photographer as he will definitely capture your day with all the highlights and all the special little moments not only of you and your partner but your family and friends having a good time too!

Absolutely amazing
We booked Tom as we wanted a photographer to capture the moment rather than make it by posing all day! He was perfect we didn’t know he was there and the photos we have received are absolutely perfect. The whole day has truely been captured the way it was! Thank you so much Tom! We would highly recommended you to anyone!!

Completely in Love
When I first got engaged I began researching wedding photographers... many of those local to me only offered a service for 4-6 hours so I thought I would widen my search. I came across Tom's website and was encouraged to see he offered a full day service at a reasonable price. I sent an inquiry and Tom was very responsive to messages offering a free consultation at our home. He visited us and we were so impressed with the photo books he showed and the advice he gave we decided as soon as he left he was the photographer for us. I had lots of questions on the build up to the wedding, Tom was really helpful and put at ease regarding the photography for our big day. Before the wedding we did a pre-shoot where we live, it was pouring with rain but this didn't dampen any of our spirits and Tom came up with some creative ways to keep us out of the rain while capturing the landmarks we wanted. This also broke the ice with Tom and when the first images came through we couldn't wait to see what he was going to do on the actual day. The wedding day soon rolled around, Tom arrived on time and seamlessly began capturing the emotion and moments of the day from the brides party getting ready right through to the end of the band at night! Everyone commented how they'd noticed Tom throughout the day but hadn't stopped to pose like many traditional photographers so were excited to see the images created. Shortly after honeymoon we arrived home to our USB with nearly 600 photographs on (I will print all of them!) and it was such a pleasure to go through them and be reminded of all the smiles, tears and laughter of our wedding day - moments we had forgotten or missed which will never be recreated but are now saved for us to look back at. I initially wanted value for money when it came to a wedding photographer which is certainly what we got with Tom, however I would pay the same again and twice over for the images we have which we are completely in love with - because they show how completely in love we were on that day with our closest friends and family around us. The colours look amazing and we are currently working with Tom to create our wedding album, he suggested we start with 60-80 photographs but our first shortlist was around 250 they are just that good... I would highly recommend Tom to prospective couples - when he first visited our house he said the most important thing was for us to have time together on the day as a couple and with our guests not with him as the photographer which he not only achieved but photographed! Tom is highly professional, really accommodating and was a pleasure to have around on the day.

Captured all of the happiness!
Tom was everything we were looking for in a wedding photographer, seeming to be everywhere at once and yet hardly noticed- all his photos were superb: natural, smiling, full of life, and there were so many little moments that he ensured we will never forget from our day. Fantastic!

The wedding photographer that goes the extra mile (in our case, literally!)
Tom's relaxed demeanour put us both at ease from the moment we met him. The pre-wedding shoot helped us to get to know him and get used to a camera lens being pointed at us. We loved the documentary style he adopts; most of the photos he took at the reception, I don't remember seeing him when he took them! The photos are stunning! They tell a story and capture the emotion. Every time we look at them we relive the day. We were also incredibly grateful when Tom. stepped into the breach after our wedding car let us down for the journey to the reception (see selfie!). Definitely recommend.

FAQ

What is your most memorable wedding?

They've all been memorable! I love weddings that are different and I've been lucky enough to capture so many fantastic days that I couldn't pick one out.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Documentary. Natural. Candid. Professional. Relaxed.

What about your business are you most proud of?

Starting and growing it myself.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Plan the wedding you want and don't worry about pleasing everyone or sticking to traditions if you don't want them.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

A free, no obligation consultation before booking to get to know each other and go over the day and how it works. A catch up email 6 weeks before the wedding to touch base and double check all the details, possibly with a Skype call if it's been a while since we've spoken. My complete dedication on the day to capturing your wedding. Every picture personally edited to a high standard for quality and consistency and delivered to you within 4-6 weeks.

What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?

There's no one photo everyone should have. Every wedding is different, your photographs should reflect that and not look like everyone else's.

What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?

I don't work from a shots list so I've not been asked to get anything particular, however, the most unusual picture I've taken was of a frog hoping away with a piece of confetti.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Just carry on and embrace it!

Describe how you got into photography.

Travelling in New Zealand and photographing the beautiful landscapes.
