Everything has its beauty, but not everyone sees it. --Confucius

I love the excitement of photographing a wedding!

Your wedding, like life, will be filled with beautiful ephemeral moments. Beautiful photographs revive these fleeting moments years later and sustain them so they can be better remembered, shared and cherished. Elegant photographs can readily evoke those moments so you can again hear the rustling of a gown, the tinkling of glasses, the taste of the richest cake, the voices of loved ones now gone.

Every wedding has its story, a compelling tale of people coming together to celebrate the unique love of the bride and groom. A story made richer yet, by friends and family enveloping bride and groom with yet more love and happiness.

I will tell the unique story of your wedding with distinctive & beautiful images woven into a unique, personal tapestry. A story you will be delighted to share with friends and family for years to come. A story that you will build upon and continue to tell long after I have taken my last photograph.

Please inquire about rates and availability. Contact us via email at thomaswb@gmail.com, or by phone at 973-670-8919.

All the best! Read less

Thomas is amazing! He is kind, prompt, professional, creative, and just all around exceptional. The day of my wedding he arrived early, and took lots of pictures as my bridesmaids and I were getting ready. During our ceremony I had no idea where he was or what shots he took but once I saw the finished product I was beyond happy with the results. Like other reviewers have said, he's like a ninja! lol He captured every single moment in such beautiful ways...some I wouldn't even think of. Our pictures turned out romantic, fun and absolutely gorgeous.

Thank you, a million times, Thomas! And one day in the future if/when we decide to have children, I will most definitely want you to take their newborn pictures. :)

Tom was an absolute pleasure to work with. He showed up early and was ready to work right away. During the entire ceremony and reception Tom did not stop taking photos. Whenever my wife or I turned around Tom was there taking photos, in fact all the guests commented on how Tom always seemed to be Johnny on the Spot when it came to getting pictures of all the key moments of the wedding. Tom was great at suggesting different photos to take and poses to use but he also let guests take all the pictures they wanted infusing a lot of personality in the pictures. Honestly, my wife and I were very lucky to book Tom and I don’t think our wedding would have been nearly as great if we had used another photographer. When my wife and I got the photos we were blown away. Tom’s work was wonderful and he captured so many moments from our wedding it was like living it all over again. I cannot recommend Tom highly enough and am sure that anyone who books him will be just as satisfied as we were.

Thomas and his partner Jed were phenomenal!! My husband and I worked with Thomas for about a year leading up to our wedding, and we couldn't have asked for better service. He was always an email, phone call, or text away whenever we had a question. I also sent him samples of photos that I liked from my friends' weddings and from Pinterest and he completely understood what I wanted. Thomas and Jed worked really well together when we took pictures between the ceremony and the reception and were incredibly receptive to what we wanted, where we wanted to shoot, and how we were feeling.

Throughout the entire day, they were extremely professional. We didn't even know they were there! My husband and I were looking back through some of the photos and said to each other "How did he get that shot? We didn't see him!" We got an awesome sample of photos a few days after the wedding and couldn't be more thrilled! We can't wait to see the rest of them! I'm so glad that we worked with Thomas at Aesthete Studios and highly recommend him!!!

Everything about working with Thomas is wonderful. We had our engagement session with him in September 2013 and loved the experience and the pictures and our wedding was even better!

Thomas worked with us to plan the day and was exactly where we needed him at all times capturing the memories we wanted. He's a fun guy which makes him great to work with as well! His photos are gorgeous and unique while still getting all of the special moments you want. We were so happy to get pictures up on Facebook within a day of the wedding as well while everyone was still talking about it.

Everyone was impressed by the photos and his professionalism and I know multiple people who want to use him in the future. We can't wait to see our wedding albums!

Thank you for everything!!

We really enjoyed working with Tom and we will absolutely work with him again in the future. He was always so easy to get in touch with and very accommodating. We received a preview of our wedding photos just two days after our wedding! His photos are unique, fun, and BEAUTIFUL. We cannot wait to see the rest of our pictures. I am confident that they will be just as amazing as the preview. Tom did a fantastic job of capturing all the details of our wedding without being "in your face". We barely noticed him, but he got all the shots. He was so easy to work with and it really was a pleasure. I highly recommend Aesthete Studios if you want to work with a great photographer that produces excellent work!

I would recommend Aesthete Studios without hesitation! We had the best experience working with Tom for our wedding. Prior to signing the contract with him he went over all of our difference package options and was so flexible to meet our needs. His portfolio was breathtaking and the albums he offers are amazing. Unlike most vendors, after you sign your contract he is still 100% easy to get in touch with. His responsiveness is top notch. If we had any questions along the way he was always right there with an answer. We never worried about a thing.

The day of the wedding he really worked his magic! He doesn't just focus on the people and the event, he also gets the details. The little things that you might miss throughout your day...he gets them! He is like a shadow throughout the day. He's getting everything but you barely see him! I don't know how he does it!

He approaches everything with a unique eye which makes for truly amazing photos. There are moments, and looks, that he captured that I know I will love looking back on years from now. Photos that I will be so happy to show my children and grandchildren!

We were so fortunate to work with him for our wedding and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking. He was great from beginning to end. His packages can't be beat and his work is wonderful. You would be crazy to pass him up!

We are so incredibly glad that we chose Thomas at Aesthete Studios to be our photographer for our wedding at the Mallard Island Yacht Club. Thomas photographed a wedding for my dads very close friend and after that, my dad knew that Thomas would be perfect for his daughters big day so he booked Tom for our wedding. Being that we didn't yet have a chance to meet Tom before my dad booked the contract, Tom was willing to meet us in Morristown, NJ to learn a little about the future bride and groom and we also wanted to learn about him and see some more of his work in person.

After my fiance' at the time and I met with Tom, he asked if he could take some photos of us in the park which was really nice because we never really get photos of us together and it was a good way for us to get used to being professionally photographed. Tom also had a brilliant idea to come to my first dress fitting with me and my mom just a few blocks from our meeting place that evening. This was such a cool experience and I would recommend that all brides get one of their dress fittings photographed. It is often tough for brides to find that perfect dress and then tough for that dress to fit perfect. Dress fittings are a huge part of your wedding planning and it is really cool to have that captured by Tom.

His service is beyond professional and he made sure to arrive early on our big day which is a huge stress reliever for the bride. He overall has a very creative eye is a true photography expert. We barely even knew he was around while photographing all of the big events and special moments on our wedding day. He was really easy to get in touch with at all times and responds in a timely manner no matter how busy he is. We even got a wedding preview just two days after our wedding! We highly recommend that you don't pass up this fantastic photographer! We look forward to working with Thomas in the future and thanks again for your outstanding work on our special day!

After my fiance' at the time and I met with Tom, he asked if he could take some photos of us in the park which was really nice because we never really get photos of us together and it was a good way for us to get used to being professionally photographed. Tom also had a brilliant idea to come to my first dress fitting with me and my mom just a few blocks from our meeting place that evening. This was such a cool experience and I would recommend that all brides get one of their dress fittings photographed. It is often tough for brides to find that perfect dress and then tough for that dress to fit perfect. Dress fittings are a huge part of your wedding planning and it is really cool to have that captured by Tom.

His service is beyond professional and he made sure to arrive early on our big day which is a huge stress reliever for the bride. He overall has a very creative eye is a true photography expert. We barely even knew he was around while photographing all of the big events and special moments on our wedding day. He was really easy to get in touch with at all times and responds in a timely manner no matter how busy he is. We even got a wedding preview just two days after our wedding! We highly recommend that you don't pass up this fantastic photographer! We look forward to working with Thomas in the future and thanks again for your outstanding work on our special day! Read less

Tom did an awesome job with our wedding. He was sure to communicate with us prior to the event to really get a feel for what we wanted with our pictures. He was never pushy and always very professional. He really felt like he was a part of our wedding. We asked a guest to make sure one of our pictures was with him! He had previously photographed my brother's wedding, so we knew he was a great photographer, but his desire to make our wedding perfect was even more than expected. Our pictures are beautiful and tell a story of how amazing our wedding day/night was! Tom is an exceptional, professional, hard-working, and inspired photographer that we would recommend to anyone!!
