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 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!

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!!

Aesthete Studios were true professionals and directed us during the event to capture some truly breath-taking photos. They were easy to work with and their artistic eye captured countless magical moments during our wedding. Enjoying their work to the fullest, Aesthete uploaded copies of the photos mere hours of the wedding concluded! We would absolutely recommend their services to anyone looking for high quality, unique photos of their event.

We are incredibly grateful to have worked with Tom! From our initial meeting, we were drawn to work with him because of the quality of his work and his passion for what he does.

Tom made great use of the time we had prior to the wedding. He took his own personal time a few days prior to the wedding to visit the venue and find unique places to take pictures. Some of the best pictures we've seen so far have been in those not-so-obvious settings. Once the ceremony started, Tom did a great job blending into the party while capturing private, candid moments with our family and friends.

Within a week of being married, Tom posted 130 photos of the wedding on Facebook. We were so impressed with the quality of pictures that Tom had shared with us. He was able to capture all the special moments of the day. As we looked through the pictures, we felt like we were watching the day unfold all over again. We can't wait to see the rest of the photos!

Overall, Tom is very personable and a pleasure to work with. We highly recommend that you select Tom as your photographer for your next event.

Would highly recommend! We had a very long wedding day that started in New Jersey and ended in a hotel in NYC. He was so dedicated that not only did he take plenty of photos in New Jersey, he was able to get to NYC before we did to take photos of us arriving in limousine. He is extremely dedicated, friendly, unobtrusive. his photos are very artistic, natural and was a great price.
He is also very accommodating and takes the photos that you request. My father was particularly bossy and kept directing him to take certain photos. i was worried there would be conflict but he was so accommodating and pleasant about it, would highly recommend!

Working with Tom was nothing short of a pleasure. We found Aesthete Studios from a co-worker's recommendation. We were impressed by his work with infants. We corresponded via e-mail, and phone to arrange details for the shoot.

This is our first child, and we were interested in documenting the first few days of her life. That being said, I wouldn't trust just anyone to be around such a young infant. Tom was wonderful and gentle with out daughter, and completely interested and open to our input regarding the photographs.

The passion he has for his work is immediately apparent from the moment he walked into our home. He approached the shoot with excitement, anxious to meet our daughter, and he immediately went to work analyzing our space for possible naturally occurring settings. We felt that he tried to capture a piece of us in our daughters portrait. There was nothing cookie cutter about his aesthetic. He was critical of his own settings, and lighting, and often asked for our preference.

The final product speaks for itself. We are thrilled with the quality of his work. He captured the beauty of our newborn, and even some of the humor.

We look forward to working with Tom in the future. He will be welcome at any event/life experience we wish to document. He feels like more of a friend than a photographer.

I am incredibly impressed with Tom's work! His passion for what he does is so evident in my photos! From the first day we met, till the last minute he was at the wedding, he was incredibly personable and dedicated to making making my husband and I happy!

He worked with us for many hours before the wedding ensuring that we would have every picture that we wanted. He was willing to come to the wedding early and stayed later then he was supposed to to capture every moment during our special day!

I have been to other weddings where the photographers were obtrusive and that was the complete opposite of Tom! I didn't even notice him during the day, and yet he captured things in the photographs that literally made me tear up when reviewing them!

Within 48 hours of being married, Tom posted almost 100 photos of the wedding and promises to have the rest of them posted on his site by the end of the week! There was nothing better then getting to share his photos with my friends and family on Facebook!

I was worried that I wouldn't have the quality photos I wanted because I didn't have a big budget to spend, but Tom definitely proved to me that you don't need to spend crazy amounts of money to have a quality photographer! He is incredibly worth every dollar he charges! You are crazy to pick any other photographer in the tri-state area!!

Tom is amazing! I really have no other words for him. He found his way to my parents house after Hurricane Sandy, which had devestated our area, and he took absolutely beautiful pictures. He was so thorough and I didn't even have to tell him what pictures I wanted, he just seemed to know. Within a week there was a gallery of 100 pictures on Facebook and by 2 months I had all my pictures in prints and on a disc. He was very easy to communicate with and always got back to me in a timely manner. I would reccomend Tom to anyone who is looking for a wonderful photographer and who is also an amazing person. I couldn't have been happier to have worked with him and hope to work with him again soon!

My husband and I absolutely LOVED working with Tom. He is extremely professional and has such an amazing eye for detail. He met with us several times before the wedding, fielded all of our questions and treated us like gold. He listened to all of our thoughts and ideas and tailored his photography to us.
When Tom showed up to my parents house the day of the wedding, he was parked and out of the car on the ground taking pictures of my dog and the fall foliage within seconds. He caught some of the most amazing things. Tom has a great sense of humor, is fun, down to earth, and above all, extremely talented. He is very flexible and takes your ideas into consideration. He sent us a few proofs for our friends and family to look at a few days after the wedding. I am absolutely stunned and I cannot wait to see the rest! Thank you SO much for making our wedding day incredible and so memorable. I would 100% recommend Tom to anyone looking to have their special day captured perfectly.

Best and thanks!

Thomas is an absolutely BRILLIANT wedding photographer!! He truly loves what he does and it is reflected in the quality of his work. The pictures he took for my wedding are absolutely breathtaking. From candid shots to family portraits he really has an eye and talent for what he does. He took some risk shots of my husband and I- they are just breathtaking. At one point he said to us, "Ok I know this may sound odd and is a risk, but would you be willing to stand in the middle of that field?" So waded a couple of feet into tall grass, had some good laughs and shot the most unbelievable pictures. I am SO happy we listened to him! The pictures, the angle, the clarity and light are just stunning!!! Tom also has a knack for symmetry which of course is always pleasing to the eye! He took some pictures of us on a tree lined street that are so beautiful. The black and white pictures look like something out of an old French movie. Thomas can definitely reveal the beauty in anything and that is definitely what counts. The color, light and movement he captures is unreal, he definitely knows what he is doing!!! He is also an absolute pleasure to work with! He has a very easy personality and is just dedicated to his work. What's better than that?! He even was on the ground taking pictures of us and the angle was great!! Im so happy I found him on the knot.com. It was a pleasure to work with him and I cannot recommend him highly enough. He also got us our pictures in 6 weeks! Super fast. Thanks Thomas!! -Courtney and Craig.

So happy we had www.JerseyWeddingPhotography.com cover our destination wedding in Ecuador!

We have such wonderful moments beautifully captured thanks to Tom. He has a great eye, so much imagination, and such an amazing talent! I couldn't have asked for anything more, every shot was stunning. I was so amazed by his work - you could see his commitment and dedication to each and every shot. I couldn't be happier with my wedding pictures and am so grateful to have such beautiful and meaningful shots of our special day to look back to for years to come. I would recommend him every time. His work speaks for himself, but his personality puts the cherry on top.

High Quality -Excellent Photographer!! Hiring Tom was one of our best decisions. His pictures are fantastic and he's a total professional at a very reasonable rate. He truly loves his art and it shows! Tom arrived early and well dressed, his energy was incredible - constantly checking the light, re-sighting his shots, and snapping away! Very responsive to my wife's many different photo shot requests and easy going. I consider myself to be a bit critical, and my wife can be very picky at times, but we never had a single problem. Honestly, you can't go wrong if you hire Mr. Bialoglow.

Tom with Aesthete Studios is by far the best wedding photographer around hands down. My wife and I took our time going through dozens of photographers while planning the wedding. When we found Tom with Aesthete Studios, we knew right away he was clearly the best photographer. The entire process from the initial conversations prior to booking, through the wedding and beyond, I knew my wife and I made the right choice. Even with the weather not cooperating on the big day, Tom was extremely professional and came through and we got some amazing shots outside the venue. To anyone out there reading this review, take a minute, look at the rest of the reviews. There's a reason why everyone before me has given Tom a 5 star across the board in everything. He is simply the best and I will always recommend him to everyone in the future. Thanks again Tom amazing job!

I am having a difficult time expressing how happy Thomas made me on my wedding day.

Thomas came highly recommended through a very good friend who is as stingy with praise as anyone I can recall. My friend’s exact words were, "Trust me … you will NOT be disappointed with Tom. He is, by far, the best and most professional photographer in the biz." With that recommendation, I called Thomas and scheduled our first meeting. From that meeting … to the end of my ceremony … to the initial pictures he shared with us the night of the wedding, I have been nothing but happy.

I am a sales professional and have a good ability to read people. When you meet Thomas, you can just see that he is genuine. Thomas is not out to make a sale; he doesn't treat you like a dollar sign. Thomas treats his clients like real people. It is apparent Thomas views photography not as a 'job,' but as his passion and he goes to great lengths to create whatever it is you want. I knew we had made the right choice when Thomas came and spent three (3) or four (4) hours with us for our engagement shoot. Thomas even made my fiancé – who is more camera shy than me – feel comfortable. I doubt that he ever got all of the mud out of his car … but that’s another story.

I have been in my fair share of weddings and have seen many kinds of photographers, even some who were unprofessional and some who were downright rude; Thomas was neither of these. Thomas was sweet and respectful to work with. He was right where I needed him to be when I needed him to be there and actually helped the flow of the day with his calm and laid back (but always professional) demeanor.

This was my day and I was striving for as much perfection as I could create. I feel that having a photographer who understood me, and what I was looking for, was more important than I even realized. Thomas listened to me when I tried to describe my vision and he captured every detail of my fairytale.

First let me say how happy my husband and I are with our photos!!! When we were shopping for a photographer we had a really difficult time because we are 7hrs away from our NJ location. We were also on a tight budget. We spoke with Tom a few times and reviewed his gallery and we were sold. We didn't even meet in person- we knew he was a talented, genuinely nice person. He also worked with us on the package to get to the price we wanted and swapping around some things. He was so flexible and really listened to what we wanted. Everything was handmade and I stressed this to him, that I wanted some great shots to use for selling and he definitely delivered. My mom still calls me to tell me how great of a job he did- EVERYONE comments on the gorgeous photography. I will work with him again. Tom, THANK YOU so so much. You help us relive that day every time we look at them and we couldn't be happier. HIRE HIM!

Thomas presented his portfolio, but also impressed us with the artist who created it. His interest in our day was evident from the beginning, even offering a pre-wedding shoot the week before to become familiar with our selected reception venue.
The day of the wedding he captured both the image and the feelings of Jill and I as well as our wedding party and guests, as an artist of yore accomplished with a brush.
Thomas's involvement went beyond that day making sure that everyone had the images they wanted the way they wanted them both electronically or conventional print and book. Would we recommend him? We do, and receive an additional note of thanks for our wedding
gifts.

Thomas was amazing! Everybody loved him; he was like family by the end of the wedding. His photos captured the spirit of our day –the mountain VT setting, the details, the people, the emotions –everything. He captured the most amazing moments and did so without being intrusive –he was just there when something was happening. Incredible value for the price. Thomas will be photographing our children someday soon. I wouldn’t trust anyone else.

Tom was exactly what I was looking for (and more) in a person to photograph my wedding day, for these reasons:
1) Great correspondence and follow-up during the planning process. Tom was very prompt in contacting me when I first inquired about his photography and also in email follow-up whenever we had a question about the details of the day. From his thorough correspondence, we were put at ease knowing that he would be very reliable on the day itself, and he was.
2) Fabulous photos. Being the bride, there was so much that I didn't see from my point of view. Tom really captured the highlights of the day with such strikingly beautiful images. Some of the black and white photos of my husband and I during our first dance really stand out for me.
3) Reasonably-priced options. Compared to similar packages we looked at for area photographers, Tom's prices are hard to beat. He even let us have an extra hour of his time for free for promoting his page on Facebook.
4) Care and thoughtfulness. Tom's laid back and thoughtful personality really shined for me. At one point just before the ceremony, there was an unforeseen delay and I had to wait a half hour before I could walk down the aisle. Tom took an interest in my summer travels and engaged us all in conversation to distract us from the delay. That interaction really showed me that he cared, and made him a pleasure to work with.
