I’m a self-taught and life long photographer who loves to shoot weddings. When booking me for your one special day, I capture the ‘LIFE’ of your wedding. I consider photography an extension of my eyes and my philosophy can be summed up as unobtrusive and avoiding cliches. But it’s not just that. Booking me, you will receive stand alone, emotional and authentic images with drama that are truly unobtrusive, documentary coverage of your wedding day. I love to photograph seemingly simple but complex images, all without prompting or directing you.
It’s an approach that is a truthful interpretation of your day. I don’t direct or stage details and decor. Sure, I photograph the details but as I find them, and sure, I take groups and couple shots but they’re taken promptly and succinctly. It’s not my day but yours to enjoy with your family and friends. No contrived imagery or commercial manufactured looking images are shot. I’ll not be asking you to look at the camera and grin or tell you how to hold the knife as you cut the cake. No holding balloons down a narrow lane or couples jumping in the air. I don’t believe a picture can be improved by interfering as then the image isn’t a moment, it’s a photographers interpretation of what the moment should be. Read less

If you want the best photographer in San Antonio, pick Philip Thomas. Here's what you get: a total professional who will produce FABULOUS pictures for you. He has a calm demeanor, he's always in control. He's everywhere on your wedding day but never in the way. In fact, once you see the photos, he was in places and took shots I never thought were possible.
Whenever we had a question, he answered it immediately.
After our ceremony, he got us through group photos in a flash.
He has the perfect attitude throughout the day.
And, most importantly, his pictures are absolutely spectacular.
I would be happy to speak personally with anyone who's interested in hiring Philip.
It was as good a decision as we made throughout the entire process.

Philip is amazing! Once I saw his work online, we did a skype (I'm 5 hours away from his location) and I knew he was the right photographer for me. His work is so artistic and captured moments that we would have never seen had he not been there. He was great to work with prior to the event and was just as delightful during the wedding. He arrived on time and was there till the very end of a long day. He's also a bit stealth-like, in looking at the pictures, there are many that I had no idea he was even there. If you are looking for someone that just takes posed pictures - this is not your guy. If you are looking for someone to capture the real life moments of your wedding in a way that is artistic and brilliant, call Philip.

Philip Thomas, and his backup photographer, Christian, were the photographers at my wedding. I can personally attest to Philip's profressionalism, and the quality of his work. He went above and beyond to meet our expectations, and has a throrough respect for his clients and their families. He has a talent of capturing every memorable moment in the most tasteful, and elegant manner. My wife and I truly enjoyed working with him, and we highly recommend him for your next event.

Overall, my wife and I are very happy with the level of service that we have received from Philip.

They say a picture is worth 1,000 words.

The photographs that Philip shot at my wedding have left me completely speechless. There are simply no words to describe how incredibly talented Philip is as a photographer, nor how completely stunning my photos are. Half the night I never even knew he was there, but he was, capturing moments as they were happening in real life. I've only seen a preview of his work at my wedding, but if the preview is any indication then these photos will hang like works of art on my wall.

He was very responsive to every email I sent, answered all my questions, showed up on time, stayed all night and was very personable. I highly, highly recommend him.

I'm running out of ways to say how amazing Philip is at capturing moments in my various reviews...life is so hard. Kidding! In all seriousness, I can't image finding a better wedding photographer anywhere. "Documentary" style wedding photography is such a trend these days but there are few artists that actually shoot in a true documentary style. Philip is one of those few.

When my husband and I sat down to think about what kind of photography we wanted for our wedding, we both wanted our real selves...our real moments...captured. Not the posed ones. Don't get me wrong, he did get the requisite poses (bride alone, bridal party, groomsmen, family, etc...) but of the more than 1,000 images he shot, 90% were the wedding as it was happening. I LOVED my photos. Every one of them. Because I could see the emotion or the moment in almost every shot...I got to see everything I missed when I was talking with my distant relative, or meeting someone on my husband's side for the first time. I got to see the fun everyone had on the dance floor, or their smiles during that particularly funny moment during the ceremony. And how many people can say that?

I can't recommend Philip enough on the merits of his talents, but also his demeanor. He responded to my every email, question, call within 24 hours, if not right away...even when he was vacationing with his family in England. He showed up on time, stayed till the end, and was fantastic the whole time. If you want the best photographer you can find for your wedding, hire Philip Thomas. You won't be disappointed.

Highly recommend Philip Thomas Photography. I came across Philip’s work after browsing his work online and reading reviews. I love his documentary style and down to earth personality. My husband and I met Philip during our engagement photos five days before the wedding and knew we made a great choice. Prior to that, we communicated via emails. He composes photos beautifully and is evident in the numerous awards he has received. Philip’s service is great and delivers the product fast with a superb quality. We received our photo album and absolutely love it! Living overseas, we had to rely on the photographer’s online portfolio and reviews. Trust and believe, Philip’s work is fantastic.
