My finace and I were on vacation in Charlottesville and wanted to have our engagement pictures taken when the foliage was at its peak. Tom was very flexible with setting up a shoot day and time. He was so easy to work with and super friendly! He was even nice enough to offer great advice on places to visit in the area. He was great with directing us during the session, not too posed and very natural. We got the pictures so quickly and they were amazing! He did a wonderful job capturing the candid moments. We will definitely have a hard time choosing from all the pictures for the save the date! Highly recommend!

My advice? If Tom Daly is available to shoot your wedding, BOOK HIM. NOW! Before the whole world realizes how incredibly good he is at what he does and he's booked 'til the end of time. Tom shot both print and video of my wedding day and, having just received the results, I'm about ready to break the internet with my praise for the man. From day one he was so accommodating, friendly and fun. He worked with us to get the kinds of memories we really wanted of the day and my god he did it perfectly. I've never seen better pictures of myself (and I've been photographed by some of the best), my (now) husband, who seemingly navigates life with his eyes closed, and our families (who hate being photographed).
I count my lucky stars that I found this guy when I did, because at the end of everything (and there is a lot of everything that goes into wedding planning), the husband and the photographs (and a dress covered in tomato ketchup and wine) are all you have to show for it. And I get to show it off with such pride. Thank you from the bottom, top and both sides of our hearts, Tom.

Tom Daly was a wonderful addition to the whole wedding process. He spoke with us several times before the big day, and was exceptionally warm, professional, and accommodating. He moved around during the wedding like a super sleuth, effortlessly catching all the moments of the day, and so many that I didn't even see as I was trying to take it all in! This was a true gift as we were reviewing all the photos later. Super gold start to Tom for being SO FAST at editing all the photos and sending us our gallery. I've had so many other brides express amazement at how fast we received our final photos. Tom has such a fun energy and he made even the staged photos on a hot, humid day fun, easy, and fast. He brings his photojournalism skills into all his pictures, but is also a master of the posed shots. He went above and beyond for us on our wedding day and we HIGHLY recommend him for your wedding!

Tom is PERFECT! Him and his team were an absolute delight to work with. He really captures the day, he does not dilly dally around with too many posy posy pictures. He captures the moments that are most important and captures them with ease. We used him for our videography as well and I cannot say enough how much I am in love with our video. It captures our day from beginning to end with perfection. He is super easy to work with and makes you feel so comfortable with everything.

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.
