Tory Williams brings a fresh perspective to wedding photography. She focuses on telling a story with her images by capturing the personal moments and details that make each wedding unique. Tory goes beyond the surface to find family connections and those unique instances that are commonly missed by an outsider coming in. In the end she creates a portfolio of images that relive and share these memories for generations.

Tory graduated from Skidmore College where she studied Studio Art and French. While at Skidmore Tory lived in Paris for a year working as an apprentice and developed her passion for photography. Post-graduation Tory moved to New York City and studied at the International Center of Photography and the School of Visual Arts. For the past five years, she has been shooting weddings in the United States and abroad. In January 2009 she completed a series of weddings in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Photo District News recently awarded Tory as a “Top Knot” photographer in April 2009. Read less

From the first time we met Tory, my daughter and I knew we would choose her to photograph my daughters wedding. Her photos are amazing! She captures every detail while staying in the background. I didn't even know she was there! Tory shot a great mixture of wonderful candids and great portraits. We feel its the perfect mixture of pictures.

Just getting back all the photos in less than 2 weeks, I can honestly say one photo is better than the next, making it hard to choose.

Tory's bubbly personality is so welcoming and calming. Our guests haven't stopped talking about her.

It was a pleasure working with Tory, who put in a 12 hour day. Thank you, Tory, for capturing so many special moments at my daughters wedding. I would highly recommend Tory as a wonderful photographer.

Amazing Amazing photographer. She was the photographer at my best friends wedding a few years ago and I love how she just captured the moments at the wedding. Her style is photo journalistic and more real than the millions of posed pictures you have to take. She joined us early in the day and took photos of us getting ready in our rooms. Then once at the site was all over the place capturing all the moments that I know we will love to have. She also feels like your friend who happens to be taking pics sometimes. I never felt like she was an "in your face" kind of photographer. She is just awesome.

Planning a wedding from California to host in New York is no easy task. However, when you hire someone like Tory Williams you can be proven wrong how easy this task can be. From beginning to end, Tory has been personal, professional and a true perfectionist. She made sure prior to our event that she knew who we were as a couple, who specific people were, certain shots we wanted and most of all making my introverted (now) husband feel VERY comfortable in front of the camera. She avoided my "bad side" which I coined. I have never seen someone work so hard for 3 days straight. Our wedding was a weekend event and from the moment she arrived to the moment she left (Friday THROUGH Sunday), Tory was full of energy, able to move the crowd for pictures and capture the most authentic, genuine photos we have ever seen but also the venue has ever seen. There was no shortage of a selection to pick from, and from someone who hates how they look in photos, as an extremely particular bride, I was happy with all the photos. Tory was able to take photos of couples and everyone person at a 300 people wedding while still capturing every special moment that was happening. In the words of our guest " Your photographer was everywhere." Tory- if you read this, thank you for shooting our wedding weekend but most of all for creating a lifetime of memories that were a glimpse in the moment. We can't recommend you enough and anyone would be lucky to have you apart of their day the way you were one of the biggest part of ours.

I cannot even begin to thank Tory enough for being such an integral part of the best night of my life. Her energy and presence was so wonderful and my family has not stopped talking about how cute and sweet she was. I feel very lucky that her amazing talent will be what I get to show off for the rest of my life when I show pictures to everyone!

Tory is amazing to work with! She is such great person that you just want to have her come to your wedding. We did an engagement shoot with her first which was a great way to get to know her before the wedding. I felt very comfortable having her there and my guests commented that they loved working with her. She's not overbearing like some wedding photographers and did not try to control the day. She does an amazing job at staying in the background and capturing all the details. I love going through my photos and am amazed to see all that she was able to capture. The photos are stunning and do an amazing job of bringing the day back to life.

Tory is the quintessential photographer for the modern classic bride. She balances the idea of photojournalism with the most beautiful aesthetic. She is a joy to have around day-of (strikes that perfect balance) and as part of the entire wedding experience - from engagement shoot through wedding planning and even after - she thinks about the couple, the wedding - and shoots very personally. Her use of natural light is insane!! Her second shooters are also tops - and she got us our photos so quickly! Out of all of our wedding vendors, when I hear of a new engagement, she is the first name I surface.

We received our DVD's from Tory this week and sat down last night to watch both of them. Oh my word, it was so amazing to re-live the day!!

The set of 2 DVDs are in custom made wooden DVD cases which are gorgeous. Tory used a picture from our first dance on the cover the of the DVD's to add en even more personal touch! :) Even the "menu" is so snazzy with moving video icons!

Everything was perfect! Neither my husband nor I have seen a wedding DVD before but I had the faint idea that it would just be a straight up recording of the day. The feature film was beautifully edited incorporating songs from the day, voice overs from those dear to us, and gorgeous details shots mixed in with footage. We know that we're biased since it was our wedding day, but we'd like to think that we can now show this to ANYone and they would find it engaging and fun to watch! I love that Tory was able to take the whole day and create this wonderful 20 minute narrative. :)

When we watched the ceremony over again it was especially special to me, because I got to see things that I missed out on the first time: our parents being seated, the flower girl and ring bearer walking down the aisle, and the faces of our guests! I love how Tory took so many shots of the guests during the ceremony! All the angles and editing for the ceremony made something that had a VERY huge potential to be boring, into something that I can see myself watching over and over again.

My husband's favorite part were the speeches. The sound came through so well and you can hear every part of each speech. The whole day was such a blur that being able to sit down again and hear the words of our friends and family is precious.

Hubby and I were both so pleased with how everything turned out. Tory was a pleasure to work with! She was professional and easy-going, putting my and my entire wedding party at ease. We barely noticed her throughout the day because she filmed so smoothly! As much as we love the photos we received from the day, these videos capture so much more.

Tory is incredibly talented and puts in extraordinary effort (I have a friend in film so I have a little bit of reference to how long editing takes). Her style is the perfect balance of modern and classic. She created something we'll treasure always. :)

Tory Williams was a great find. She really brought out the best in people and then captured it on film. She was very organized and professional and kept us on track even when other people were slightly off it. Our photos are stunning and my wife and I could not be happier with them. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer.

Tory Williams is a must hire for anyone looking for a photographer who will capture the real moments that occur at a wedding. She is not someone who will create moments and make a fake photo. She has a knack for seeing what other photographers often miss. Her photographs are natural, beautiful, playful, and clever. She has a fun and relaxed demeanor, while at the same time very professional. Many of our guests after seeing our photos commented that they didn't even see her yet somehow she captured every moment from the perfect angle. I couldn't agree more. Tory is a wonderful photographer and a great person to have documenting any special event. Simply put- she is great.
