Quality - Creativity - Innovation

My wedding day is one of my most cherished memories. It was the day I stood in front of family and friends and declared my love to my best friend. We laughed, we cried, we danced our butts off. Now, 7 years later that was they day I loved my wife the least. Today, through the magic of photos and video, my wife and I, along with our 2 beautiful children, can look back on that day which marked the beginning of our legacy for our future generations.

I wish to create those same memories that you yourself will treasure in the years to come. Please take a moment to check out my website and if you have any questions please feel free to email or call me directly. I look forward to hearing from you and hope to work with you on your wedding day.

Tommy is so creative it completely blew our mind. He showed us some videos of weddings he had done before and we told him what kind of style suited our personalities. My husband was 100% against having a videographer, but after seeing Tommy's work he was on board. The day we received our video that highlighted our wedding, my husband had tears in his eyes and told me he was so glad we decided to get a videographer. Tommy's video captured every special moment of our big day and the way he intertwined the voice overs of the pastor and speeches was like watching a trailer to a movie. Tommy completely exceeded our expectations and we are so excited to share our video with family and friends who weren't able to make it to the wedding. I HIGHLY recommend him. Not only is he great at what he does, he is super personable which is important if you're going to spend the entire day with him! Thank you Tommy!!!

Tommy was wonderful to work with on our wedding day. On a day where our original DJ no showed and we had to get a last minute replacement, it was nice to have Tommy arrive an hour early. He was also wonderful in attaching all the boutonnieres on myself and each groomsmen. He was very professional, but also friendly and knew how to ease the nerves on a day like that. The photos he took came out perfectly, and are a great reminder of how perfect a day it was. I wholeheartedly recommend IRIS Photography and Videography for any service you need. If you are lucky enough to have Tommy work your event, then you're in safe hands.

Wedding Videography can get really expensive. When my now husband and I starting looking for a videographer for our wedding day we needed it someone that was affordable but with good quality. We made an appointment with Tommy and he show us samples of videos that his company had shot in the past. We liked their work and we decided it that they would be the ones to capture one of the greatest moments in our life. We are very pleased with the results. They have an easy payment system and the results are great. We just got our short video and we loved it. We cannot wait to see the entire video!!!! We recommend Tommy and his team for your event.

Tommy is by far the best photographer and videographer in OC!

He was so friendly and excited to hear about the initial engagement and wedding plans. In talking to Tommy, he really got to know myself and my husband Trevor. He got a feel for what our personalities were like and that came to life in the pictures and video.

Tommy is very affordable and the quality of his work is genius! No one else can compare.

When Tommy was at the wedding, he was so friendly and he knew which moments to capture. He didn't miss anything. He is so flexible.

I will never forget our intimate photo session after the ceremony. Tommy made my husband and I feel so comfortable and natural. Heck, we even forgot he was there from time to time, because we would get so lost in the moment. It shows in our photos. That's the kind of photographer he is.

When my husband and I finally received our pictures, we both cried. Our families and friends could not stop raving about them. My wedding day was a blur, but the moment i saw the pictures, i started making connections :)

and when Tommy sent us our highlight video, OMG, we cried even more. I must have watched it 20 times in one day because each time there was something new! The music, the moments he selected, everything about the video just made me feel like we had the best wedding in the world. The video felt like us. My husband and I would not do anything differently, and it's all because of Tommy.

I could go on and on about Tommy and his team.

Tommy if you're reading this, I just want to let you know that you have a gift. Thank you for creating the most magical moments for us in still and motion pictures. Without you, I don't think I would be feeling this excited and proud of everything my husband I put into the wedding planning to make sure that our guests would have fun and that our wedding would be remembered forever.

Trevor and I are forever in your debt.

He was so friendly and excited to hear about the initial engagement and wedding plans. In talking to Tommy, he really got to know myself and my husband Trevor. He got a feel for what our personalities were like and that came to life in the pictures and video.

Tommy is very affordable and the quality of his work is genius! No one else can compare.

When Tommy was at the wedding, he was so friendly and he knew which moments to capture. He didn't miss anything. He is so flexible.
