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.

My husband and I are so glad to have chosen Iris Photography and Videography for our wedding. Tommy is personable, yet professional. He will answer all your questions you may have about your photography and videography needs. He responds to phone calls and emails very timely. Tommy and his team arrived early to our house and hotel when we were getting ready for the wedding and the whole team was friendly and helpful. They put forth a lot of effort to get the right shots and they listened to our needs as well. The quality of their work, both photos and videos, are excellent. Their photography and videography package is of great value. Having Tommy and his team at our wedding was almost like having friends with us. We are definitely very happy to have chosen Tommy and his team. It wouldn't have been the same without them. We love our wedding photos and video and can't wait to see our photo album!

I arrived at finding Tommy with Iris Videography and Photography for our wedding because the referral to another videographer I received from a friend who just had a wedding wasn't available. I had no particular attachment to any one yet, so I searched Wedding Wire for different possibilities. Iris seemed to be the first on the list that I saw. We had several options that looked pretty good, but here's why Iris stood out.

They had a very professional, cinematic look to their videos. I like how they had a "Bonus Features" tab including the extra longer footage.

We just received the link from Tommy to the final cut and we couldn't be more happy. It perfectly captured the day, and little things that Tommy may not have realized. There was a little footage of some relatives who were actually my parent's flower girl and ring bearer over 40 years ago. Tommy caught the moment when they saw each other (I believe) for the first time since. We also saw footage that we weren't able to see and just footage from different perspectives. Also memorable footage of speeches and performances that might have been never seen again, but were captured in this video.

We highly recommend Tommy and IRIS Photography and Videography! You won't be disappointed!

Tommy and his staff at Iris Photo & Video were the videographers at our wedding and we couldn’t be more pleased. From the initial meeting with Tommy, he was very easy to talk to and made us feel extremely comfortable. He did not try to push us into more expensive options but rather explained what he had done for others in the past and allowed us to choose what we wanted. He also included a short teaser video called “The Real Minute” which our friends and family absolutely loved. We added this video to our wedding website and it really gave our guests a glimpse into our lives. It was such a great touch.

The day of the wedding, Tommy and his staff arrived on time and were very friendly with our families and friends. They were invisible when they needed to be but they also knew when to step in and give a little direction to get great looking shots.

My wife and I didn’t want to get a physical DVD and have to make copies for everyone so we were glad to hear that Iris Photo & Video would provide us with links that we could send to our friends and family as well as allow us to download the footage to our own computers.

All in all, we’re extremely happy with the excellent work that Tommy and Iris Photo & Video did for our special day. We absolutely recommend Iris Media for your videography needs. His competitive pricing, comforting demeanor, friendly staff and online video options really sets him apart and you definitely will not be disappointed. Thank you Iris Photo & Video for everything!!

Thomas did an outstanding job with our wedding video! I was so incredibly busy and overwhelmed during the planning of the wedding, the day of, and afterwards getting ready for and going on my honeymoon, that I had no time to check in with Thomas, but he was very reliable without any kind of follow-up from me, he didn't need it, and that made things so much easier for me! He was great the day of, capturing every important moment of our day in a very special way. My favorite was the highlight reel he made- the song and all the clips were perfect. He offers incredible value on the work he delivers. He also designed a very beautiful DVD case cover and label for our discs, and made the content conveniently available online for sharing with friends and family. I really liked the interface he uses for the contract and tracking of payments, its super convenient. He also stuck to the timeline he promised. Thomas, thanks for your great work and for making it so easy on me and my husband to have and enjoy our wedding day video!

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.

Where do I begin to thank this man and his team for their outstanding work? My husband and I were blessed to have Tommy film our wedding. From the get go he was approachable, interested, and most importantly, excited about our special day. Of course, I made some last minute changes and hiring a videographer was one, and by last minute I mean 2 months before the wedding...eek! (side note: if you are currently unsure about it, do it! It's worth it and speaks a thousand words).
Anyway, back to Tommy and his team. Leading up to our day, he was available and answered all questions and accommodated more last minute add-ons I made (very indecisive gal, bless my hubby). On our day, he filmed the boys and Isabel (who was great!) filmed the girls; capturing hilarious and not so flattering moments, nonetheless, hilarious. Our ceremony was in a small chapel and he was able to capture everything from a high wide angle and the audio was amazing (even when the minister butchered my name...repeatedly...haha).
I was nervous about our receptionist, as it was on a yacht with multiple levels, that many moments would be missed. Nope, not at all! From one-on-one interviews with guests giving their advice and best wishes to an endless night of dancing, everything was captured. The following day, much of my wedding was a big, fast-forward blur. When we got the dvd, it was all pieced together.
To this day, a year later, together and with family and friends, we watch it over and over.
TOTALLY WORTH IT!

To Tommy, your was phenomenal and genius! From beginning to end, we were completed satisfied with your work and professionalism. My sincere apologies for this extremely late review...better late than never, right?

To couples debating on hiring a videographer, my advice is do it. You can only relive so much from photographer. The video is live and puts you right back in your special day.
