Tom was great about coming up from Charlottesville to shoot our wedding. His price for travel was very reasonable. I was particularly impressed at how well he shot our entire wedding of 130 people on his own - moving seamlessly around and capturing all the important moments. He's also excellent at striking the right tone with people and handles them well - getting family members to move more quickly and pose or move out of the way so they don't cast shadows (no matter what their age). He's also fast and knows his lighting well. He was laid-back and jovial the day of the wedding which made it more fun to have him around with us.

Tom is the best of the best of the best. We knew we would never sit down and watch a four hour video of our wedding, and we happened to stumble across Tom's work (thank goodness we did!). Tom was super professional, fun, and while working it was almost like he wasn't even there. We had our finished product in hand within a week! I think the finished product is between 3-4 minutes. Great for a pick-me-up on a rough day. We have received SO MANY compliments on this video - I just wish we could take credit! Tom was also nice enough to load all of his extra footage from the day on a harddrive we supplied him with, so if we ever do get the inclination to see more, we have that option. Highly, highly recommend!!

The best word to describe Tom: NINJA!! He is literally a photograph ninja. He blends in so well that we barely even noticed he was there. At one point in our wedding video, he was hiding behind the flowers and all we could see was a camera come up and slink back down behind the flowers. I was worried that I would be awkward in front of the camera since I have never been photographed before, but he just made it so easy and comfortable. On top of that, Tom is fun, enjoyable to be around, and very easy going. He was great at directing the crowds for group or family photos, and he got everything done efficiently and in a directive way while still making room for my requests. I haven't even gotten our photographs back yet, but I know they are going to be incredible!! I know that he was always there at the perfect moment, and I cannot wait to see what kind of hilarious shots he got of everyone being themselves and having a great time. His photobooth was also amazing and worth the extra cost!! The digital pictures are amazing, and our guests really got into it and took some great pictures! We love Tom and hope you do too!!

If I could give higher than a 5 for Tom's quality of service, flexibility and value I would! He was very fairly priced, and gave fantastic service. He was easy going and great to work with. Our guests commented on how quick he was (in a good way that when you had everyone posed together he could very quickly get 3 or 4 great photos) but he was also casual and not a big presence. He wasn't obnoxiously following anyone around or ruining the moment - it was fantastic. He even bopped along on the dancefloor to get those great shots at the party. I loved working with him and hope he'll still be working when I need any other events photographed.
I'd like to add that I was not asked to write this review for him or given any special discounts or products for doing so - I just wanted to rave about his quality of service - I highly recommend him.

Tom was perfect. We were thrilled with the photos and he was fun, helpful and professional the day-of. We got the photos back in mere days too, which was a nice surprise.

Tom - you really are one of the most incredible photographers I've met. I have a pretty big head, but you've completely humbled me. I really do feel emotion from your work... you have a magnificent way of conveying a feeling through imagery. While most people might be pleased with 2 or 3 good photos of themselves from their wedding, I'm literally blown away by at least 10 times that. I know wedding photography can be tough at times, but you have a way of making it look perfect. I'm sure I'll call you in a few years for "baby's first something or another." Thanks again for the greatest wedding photos ever!

Amazing!!!! Thank you!!!! I'm still looking over and over at the pictures - love 'em! I know referrals mean a lot in your business. I wasn't really into the whole wedding blog thing, so I don’t know the hot sites, but we are more than happy to fill out any survey or write up any blurb about how amazing of a job you did. Really. Just let us know.
