Our Wedding Weekend and Wedding Day was even more magical and memorable than we initially anticipated it to be because Tom and Brenda captured every detail and every movement from the entire day! The vivid imagery from the photography was absolutely perfect! We are so very pleased with our wedding pictures as we are to have met Tom and Brenda, who are more like family to us than a business partner! They truly took the time to listen to us to know what we wanted for our wedding pictures, followed me on Pinterest for wedding picture ideas that I wanted captured that day, and kept in contact with us during the months leading up to our entire wedding weekend to make sure we were doing well or if we had any questions. They even took the time to travel up to the Stroudsmoor Country Inn in Stroudsburg, PA in the Pocono Mountains with us a month before our wedding to see our wedding venue and get initial ideas as to how the day was going to flow and how the lighting will be set up to capture the best images. Tom and Brenda, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts, not only for taking perfect wedding photos for us to embrace for many years to come, but thank you for becoming apart of our family forever. You receive our highest recommendation for your services and profession.

Tom, Brenda and his team were an absolute pleasure! We're so glad we found them and that they chose to do our wedding. We also did engagement and a bridal shoot with them and we hope can have them capture many more memories throughout the years!

They were very thorough and easy to work with--Tom and Brenda are two of the sweetest people we know--by the time our wedding rolled around, they were the vendor we were most comfortable with. They visited our venue with and without us a few times to check out lighting, places to take photos, etc. Plus, the images they captured that day were absolutely amazing. Tom and his team are incredibly talented, fun to work with and will work with you to create any shot you've seen online or are a "must-have" to capture. Our friends and family keep raving about how great the photos are and how wonderful Tom and Brenda are.

Where to even begin! In some ways it felt as though our photographers Tom and Brenda were interviewing us just as much as we were interviewing them when we first met them. We could not have been more happy that we chose them and they in turn chose to also work with us. The simplest way to explain just how much Tom and Brenda meant to us during this whole process would be to say that after our experience we will probably never work with any other photographer period. They were truly one of the best parts of our whole experience (next to actually getting married) and we are forever grateful to them. Not only did we get amazing photos but we got two new friends. Thank you Tom and Brenda!

Tom and Brenda did an awesome job capturing many special moments throughout our wedding day. They arrived at the venue very early to make sure they had plenty of time to set up there equipment and take pictures of all the simple decorations that were apart of our wedding. They went above and beyond as they made a video of our wedding ceremony and a slide show of our pictures! We enjoyed working with Tom and Brenda, and we would definitely recommend them!

Piratical Photography's approach to photography is like no other. They get angles and shots that you won't see any where else. They set up equipment in places that perfectly capture the most important moments of your day. They are very flexible with different styles of photos. Tom is willing to re-create shots that you've found on the internet and even has the creativity to make his own signature shots. This company is fun to work with and they are eager to make sure you get everything you're looking for in your photos. We would highly recommend Piratical Photography to anyone that desires unique yet classic photos of their big day.

We are so happy that we decided to use Piratical Photography as our wedding photographers. Tom and Brenda visited our wedding venue a couple of times before the actual wedding day .The morning of the wedding, Tom and Brenda coordinated with each other to make sure they photographed the bride/bridesmaids and groom/groomsmen throughout the getting ready stages of the day. Looking back at the pictures now, it is so cool for my husband and I to be able to see the images of each other during that important time period. I remember telling Tom that I hadn't seen my wedding band yet and Mark hadn't see his yet either, so he coordinated with Brenda to get the two rings + engagement ring in a private area and photographed them together. I am so grateful that every important detail was captured during the wedding ceremony. I couldn't be happier with these. Some of my favorites are in black and white. They look timeless and really make the white wedding gown stand out. Another one of my favorites is the barn shot when we are all standing in front of it, or maybe the porch shot.I can't decide lol. During the reception, Tom and Brenda managed to get all of the friends and family shots. They delivered the professionalism and product that was promised to us. After this part was over, the reception festivities began. You don't really know how many pictures are being taken during the reception until you see them all. So, to Tom and Brenda, Thank you so much for your professionalism, organization, and high quality work on our most memorable day so far. When Mark and I look through the pictures, we get to re-live our wedding day.You guys were like photography ninjas getting every angle and shot. Thanks again for everything!

It really was a pleasure to work with Tom and Brenda from Piratical Photography. They were very professional and very knowledgeable about the wedding and photography industry. They had provided a sample photograph shoot list, which was very helpful for me to prepare my version of it. They also improvised as needed. They also provided non-photography advice while I was preparing for the wedding during the day.

My family and friends are still raving about their services. I plan to use them for family portraits and any special events going forward. Hire Piratical - you will be glad you did!

Tom is not just an incredibly talented photographer, he is also one of the nicest people I've met. He really went above and beyond for our wedding and delivered absolutely incredible photos. Tom is a lot of fun to work with, and makes the whole experience really easy and carefree. What I love the most is that he works with the best assistant he could ever had, his wife Brenda ;) they make the perfect team. She took care of the flower girls when I was taking pictures with my husband, she fixed my dress so it looked perfect in the pictures. What else can I say I love guys, and I am glad you where part of our special day.
