"Tommy is a world apart from other wedding photographers. Educated (Yale) in photography as a Fine Art, a natural talent, with brilliant people skills. His photographs capture a moment's meaningfulness, personalities and relationships, carrying us back to our wedding day every time we look at just one of his pictures. Tommy's pictures are music that never ends". l try to write about myself but that review says it better than I ever could and it's from a client. There's alot of wedding work being done these days under the name of "wedding photojournalism" which looks like the same set-up, posed, wedding pictures that we've all seen before. I try to stay out of your day and let it happen naturally. Others make tons of the bride and groom and document every little still life detail. Look at the variety of images I make. I don't want to be thought of as a wedding photographer, how about a photographer who photographs weddings. I'm what you're looking for, you just didn't know it. My wedding day is usually for 8 hours. I also offer shorter days if it's appropriate. More hours can be added as well. Many have me there for the entire weekend. This helps me to become a person with everyone before the wedding day. After the wedding, I edit the pictures, correct each individual image and upload your photos to your own private web site. This is a great convenience for you, your family and guests as it allows you to see the wedding images soon after and everyone can order their own favorites directly from the site. Also included are 4x6" prints (color and b/w) of all your images. Even in the digital age its important to see actual prints and you should want me to print them instead of your local lab. Hi-res jpgs on CDs and a release can also be purchased. Please email me and I'll be happy to send you specific pricing for your day (please tell me where you are). Knowledge, experience, talent and personality are key ingredients for a great wedding photographer. My pictures look the way they do because people are enjoying themselves. A photographer you'll actually enjoy being around (rumor has it), who possesses the tools and the talent; I may actually be a bargain! When all is said and done these are the pictures you'll look at for a lifetime! Email or call (607) 316-4803 if you'd like to talk or receive pricing.

I could not possibly be more pleased with our wedding photos. I am the daughter of a very talented photographer, who passed away in 2010. Having the right photographer was with out a doubt the most important part of our day. So, naturally I was going to be extremely selective with who was chosen. Although, there was not much selecting going on because I knew right away who I needed to call...Tommy Brown. My Dad knew Tommy personally and I know he wouldn't have wanted anyone else to capture such an important day for me. Tommy is truley talented, more than just a photographer; an artist. Tommy captures moments in time, not pictures. On our wedding day we had less than perfect weather(clouds, wind, rain)...that didn't stop Tommy from finding the most amazing photos. During the ceremony we had dark clouds over head and a storm rolling in. The photos Tommy made are jaw dropping...magazine cover, award winning, jaw dropping! Not only is he great at what he does, he is fun to be around! A number of people at our wedding commented on how "cool" our photographer was! High quality screams at you in every which way. I'm so grateful to have had Tommy Brown photograph our wedding and would have choosen him over and over, no question!

I'm not going to be able to do Tommy Brown justice with words but I will try. After extensive research and a couple meetings with other photographers, I drove out to meet Tommy Brown. From the moment he greeted me, I knew he was the photographer for our wedding. He instantly made me feel comfortable, like we were old friends. During that first meeting he didn't try to sell me on a ton of products (ie: "These are the framed prints we make after the wedding" or "This is the photo book we produce and you should buy it now" etc...). We simply hung out, looked at his art work (both wedding photography and fine art photos, both of which are INCREDIBLE) and talked. I felt I got to know him both as an amazing artist and a wonderful human being.
On the day of our wedding we challenged him greatly. I am a bit of a photographer myself and am also surrounded by amazing photographers and artists(most of which were in our wedding party). I am awkward on the other side of a lens. I didn't plan enough time for photos, the lighting at our reception was very dark and ALL we did was dance. Tommy Brown happily accepted this challenge. He made everyone feel comfortable, he fit in with our friends and family, he was AWESOME! Many of our guests made a point to tell me how great they thought our photographer was.
Now for the final product review (because who cares about what a great guy he is if his photography doesn't hold up, right??). Yesterday I got to see the photographs. WOW! He not only gave us incredible photos, he captured the unique spirit of our day. The love, the fun and the connection between all of us shines through the pictures. You can FEEL it, it is palpable. He made me laugh and cry (happy tears, of course). We had the time of our lives at our wedding and Tommy Brown preserved that feeling for us in artwork that we will treasure for the rest of our lives. Thank you!

Tommy was recommended to me by an acquaintance - and by recommended, I mean raved about, and she was right. Tommy's style is laid back but professional, and his photography was exactly what my husband & I were looking for - we wanted photos that focused on fun candids and real moments, and not heavily on posed shots (which it goes without saying he is also good at). He captured our family, friends, and the fun of our wedding fantastically. I wish I could put examples here of some of the moments he captured -because you'd probably book him right after seeing them.

"We loved your wedding photographer!" was the first thing out of our guests' mouths the week after our wedding. Can't thank Tommy enough for taking a weekend to meet our families, and for the beautiful work he sent our way after the wedding (in record time!).

My partner works with photography in his profession, so we both went into this thinking our photographer would be the most important person we hired for the wedding. We were looking for a photographer with vision and expertise to take on our wedding weekend. Someone who wouldn't focus on posed portraits, but would have an eye for catching our friends and family while they were having a good time. If you're looking for the same, Tommy Brown is the only photographer for you. He took great shots in the days leading up to the wedding, chatted with our families, and caught terrific moments on the dance floor after hours. He was personable and funny. The few posed photos he did take--like one of our wedding party--were so well-balanced in the color of the dresses and the height of our friends. (Plus, two people with big smiles are laughing on each side. He couldn't have planned that better!) I love the photographs he takes outside of the event world--do yourself a favor and check out his portfolio right now: http://www.tommybrown.com/Pages/Art3.html

Tommy Brown has an eye for the narrative, and gets inside the story to capture the poignant, tender moments the average photographer might miss. His eye for lighting and framing a shot are superb. He's a great guest at the party, and his outgoing nature helped him get to know our family and guests so he could photograph the large group shots in record time, and then find the backstory moments that added richness to the love story.
He's a delight to work with, and listens to all requests. Tommy's artistic eye captures moments on film with speed, precision, humor, and grace.

My fiancé and I knew that we didn’t want to have the normal everyday generic photos where everyone looks straight ahead, smiles and says cheese. We tend to like the weird, random, off-guard type of photos that captures moments, not poses. Tommy did exacty that!

I met Tommy at a bridal show many years ago. Right then I knew that Tommy was going to be my wedding photographer. The second I started chatting with him I knew that he was my kind of guy: relaxed, funny, passionate about his work and definitely NOT cookie cutter.

Everyone at the wedding felt extremely comfortable with Tommy. We even nicknamed him “Tommy Sellek” because of his epic mustache. That nickname actually got him on the other side of the camera for a quick impromptu photo, which was killer. Tommy started the day as our photographer and quickly turned into part of the group. He is amazing at what he does and has a passion and talent that is undeniable. I have and will continue to recommend him to every bride-to-be that I come in contact with. Do yourself a favor and book Tommy Brown right away - you won't regret it :)

After getting engaged, the first wedding decision we made was to ensure that Tommy would be available for our wedding pictures. I've been to numerous weddings throughout the years, and it is usually the same format - cookie cutter wedding photos. Tommy's work is anything but that - his attention to detail and ability to capture the moments of the day using an "in the moment" process is unmatched. His pictures are pure works of art, and allow for your wedding to be documented in a relaxed and enjoyable manner! I've never seen another photographer who allows you to be yourself - no posing or pictures that look fake. All of the moments are real and genuine - like all of Tommy's work! Using Tommy was one of the best decisions we made for the wedding! We highly recommend him - you will not be disappointed!!!

We originally found Tommy online, and were very impressed with his photos. I loved the way he perfectly and artistically captured the best moments of my wedding day without taking pictures of my shoes, flowers, and accessories. While he captured all of those things, they were simply accents in photos that focused on love and laughter. Tommy has an amazing ability to create pictures that do not look posed, but still contain groups of people. I did not want the traditional, stiff, posed pictures. Tommy have us full group photos that were relaxed and fun, which ultimately resulted in truly beautiful pictures. Besides being a gifted photographer, Tommy was a blast to hang out with. Both our wedding party and families loved chatting with him. I would highly recommend Tommy if you are looking for a photographer who will capture the moments from the day that you wish you could re-live. His talents shine through the photos he captures that show true love and genuine happiness. I couldn't be happier with our choice to go with Tommy, or with the spectacular images he created for us.

We wanted a wedding photographer who didn't care about capturing the shots of my shoes (I'm size 10 - who wants a photo of a pair of white boats?!) or the rings, etc. We wanted someone who was focused on capturing the energy and excitement of the day, as well as candids of ourselves and our guests just having a blast.

Tommy did all of that and more - we ended up hiring him for the rehearsal itself and the dinner following, the wedding day, and the brunch we had the next morning. I'd recommend doing this if you can afford to; it's a bit extra but we felt it was really worth it, as our guests (and my somewhat camera-averse husband) grew comfortable with Tommy and the lens over the course of the weekend.

We absolutely loved having Tommy as our wedding photographer and can't recommend him highly enough. On top of being a great photographer who just "gets it", he is a ton of fun to have around on your wedding day. This is a decision you will not regret!
