I think that Tom did a great job photographing our ceremony and reception. He was great at making my husband and I feel comfortable and takes beautiful pictures. Amazing photographer and would definitely recommend!

Thank you for the positive feed back and we are excited for you to see your proofs - your's was a fun and beautiful wedding! In passing, sometimes life events occur that impact other's most important life events and we thank you for your understanding as your very happy and joyuous occasion transpired during a week that we managed a difficult time for Tom as he mourned the passing of his mom.
Tom & Linda were so incredible to work with. Linda is always very prompt & helpful in her responses. And Tom's laid back personality & flexibility made the process so much fun! My husband & I never had to worry that he would miss something, as we knew we could rely on Tom’s expertise & artistic eye to capture our day on film! - Engagement: At the 1st location, we wanted to have the traditional romantic E-shots, but it was important to us that we incorporate our schnauzer as well. Tom was game for it all. He didn't try to control the shoot, but let our dog be a dog & captured the great moments in btwn. In Deep Ellum, Tom’s creativity came out as he wasn't afraid to try different things utilizing the artistic backdrop as inspiration. As a result, he was able to capture my husband and I's personalities in some pretty amazing photos. - Bridals: Due to some uncontrollable circumstances, I ran about 30 min late. Obviously flustered, Tom calmed me down and made sure we got all of the shots in the time allotted, but also had fun in the process. The great thing about Tom is that he knows what he is looking for in a picture, and he will guide his clients to get great shots. - Wedding Day: Tom and his assistants were very prompt and after working with Tom for so long, we were so comfortable with him that it was no longer strange to have a camera around. Looking at the pics, it seemed as if Tom and his assistants were everywhere capturing all the great moments and yet, they weren't intrusive. - PhotoBooth: WHAT A GREAT ADDITION TO OUR WEDDING! Tom provides the props & the quality of pictures is great! Everyone loved it and it kept the kids occupied throughout the night. Seeing all of the pictures afterwards was pure hilarity! - We had a GREAT overall experience working with TomK Photography & would recommend them to EVERYONE! Going through the pictures, Tom captured the essence of our wedding and who we are as a couple. We loved working with them!

When you are working with a great couple, you can not go wrong! Such a fun and beautiful wedding. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for letting us be a part of such a special time in your lives.
I cannot say enough good things about TomK Photography! Finding an amazing photographer was at the top of my priority list for my wedding, as photos are the only way to remember the amazing events of the day after all the excitement comes to an end! I cannot thank Tom and Linda enough for all that they did to help capture our big day! They traveled all of the way from TX to Wilmington, NC for our wedding, which meant so much to us. Tom and Linda were so great to work with, and they were helpful every step of the way. I had a few shots that were important to me to be captured, and Tom made sure every single one happened (even though I had completely forgotten about them that day)! They made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera and the shots they got definitely show Tom's talent! I feel like the images capture our day so well, and looking back through them brings me right back to each and every moment. All of the photographs really tell the story of our day, and he did such an amazing job of getting every little detail! I have yet to order any prints because there are so many beautiful shots, and I haven't been able to choose which to print! One of my bridesmaids has ordered some, and they are wonderful quality! Tom's love for his work definitely shows in his product and the way in which he interacts with the wedding party! If you are looking for a photographer who is professional, willing to do whatever necessary to help a couple perfectly capture their day, and is amazing to work with then TomK is the one for you! I will forever be grateful for the gift they have shared with us!!

We would not have missed this wedding for the world and were thrilled to be a part of it. Traveling to new locations helps keep our work fresh - so Thank You for including us in your special day !
Tom and his team were great to work with. Everything went off very smoothly. He took wonderful shots, and all without even really being noticed. We would definitely hire him again for future events.
Dont book with Tom K photography….(hard to work with, and they will charge you for photo corrections. 1st set of engagement photos were horrible. I was so overwhelmed with the wedding planning and work that I didn’t get a chance to do my bridal session, so I asked Tom if I could do it after the wedding & he said sure. I never scheduled my bridal session after the wedding because my husband and I were unhappy with the way some of our wedding pictures came out. Tom didn’t even get some of the most important shots. For example, he didn’t get a picture of my unity candle, no picture of our rings and hands together, no photo of me and my maid of honor, no picture of groom and best man, and the photos lacked the creativity that I wanted.
Come reception time I found out he forgot the photo booth that I requested. When I asked about it Tom raised his voice at me saying “well its not here” & then he said he would give us some kind of reimbursement and what he meant by that was he would upgrade our wedding album to the big heavy one. My husband and I didn’t want that big and heavy book. We had already picked out the one we wanted. Its 9 months later & we still don’t have a resolution.
They finally presented us with an online copy of our book so we could approve it and when we suggested changes they wanted to charge us. That’s insane. DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND DO NOT BOOK TOM K PHOTOGRAPHY FOR WEDDING DAY PHOTOS.

We pride ourselves not only on providing quality customer service but in building a great relationship with our couples as we share one of the most special days of their lives with them. It saddens us when we learn they feel they did not receive the experience that is the standard for our studio. This is review is the first we are learning that Christy and her husband are not happy with the images we gave them from their wedding day. We could refute each of the accusations above, and tell our side of this story, but we are choosing not to do so in this forum. We hope to find a professional resolution that will satisfy Christy and her husband.
Tom was wonderful to work with. He was so flexible, which was great because I had a hard time getting my dress in on time, but we managed to get my bridals done and get my photos back a mere two weeks before the wedding!
The wedding pictures were beautiful. I'm thrilled at how they turned out, and I couldn't be happier.
He has been great at responding to my millions of questions and got back to me very quickly.
I will definitely be recommending him to family and friends.
tomk was amazing to work with! He did our engagement and wedding photos, and everyone involved in our wedding had nothing but wonderful things to say. He was organized and on top of everything leading up to our big day, which was great given the stresses of planning a wedding. He also helped us stay on schedule throughout the entire wedding day. AND, of course, our photos were wonderful!
If you are looking for someone who can help you remember all those little moments that you will def. forget about....then go with tomK! I have so many pictures that I'm having a very hard time to pick the ones I want!
We worked with Tom K twice. Once for our engagement photos and ofcourse for the wedding. Both sets of photos were amazing. Tom captured out classic vintage style perfectly. The shots we have are completely timeless and totally breathtaking. Tom was extremely quick when getting back to us and always gave us a clear answer. Tom also traveled extremely far for both shoots and came completely prepared and was the epitome of a perfect professional. I'm extremely greatful Tom chose to work with us. We have tons of amazing pictures to remember our wedding. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
Tom provided outstanding service for my wife and me. Our engagement pictures were exactly as we wanted, and Tom has many great locations that set an amazing backdrop for pictures. Tom was able to work with our family and friends, orchestrate great pictures during a very busy wedding, and captured moments that we did not even remember. Our photos were amazing and something we will hold on to for the rest of our lives. We are so happy we chose a professional quality photographer.
We used Tom for our engagement session and wedding. He was absolutely lovely to work with and quick to respond to e-mails with any questions I may have had! He was also one of the most affordable photographers in the area, and honestly, I would have paid so much more for the quality work that he did. We loved working with Tom and highly recommend him to anyone looking for a great photographer that makes getting your picture taken a fun and easy experience!
We used Tom for our engagement, bridals and wedding. He was very easy to work with. One of the first things I noticed was his quick response time. When you are planning a wedding, it is important to get answer and informaiton in a timely manner. Tom definately came through! The pictures were amazing. During our engagement session, we asked to wear our "Nacho Libre" mask and Tom never missed a beat. I was so impressed that he and his assistant were able to be with me and my husband on our wedding day. Tom did such a great job during the ceremony and reception. We barely noticed him which allowed for us to have a lot of candid shots. I would reccommend using Tom to anyone who wants beautiful photos that will last a lifetime. Tom's pricing is also a huge plus. You will definately get a high quality product at an affordable price. I would use Tom for any future photography needs.
You could not ask for a more professional, more creative photographer. Not only are his prices reasonable but he is a great person to work with. We had both engagment pictures and wedding pictures with him. The engagment pictures turn out so good and I can't wait to see my wedding photos. You should defintely look at his website and give him a call.
Tom was great at helping us create our tangible memories of our very special day. I have referred him to couples getting married, and I will continue referring them to him!
I can't say enough good things about what a wonderful job Tom did for our wedding! He and his assistants are extremely professional and easy to work with from start to finish. We had an initial meeting and Tom took the time to really listen to what my fiance and I wanted. He was very flexible in scheduling our engagement photos, even doing outside shots in very cold weather. For the wedding, there were three photographers who expertly captured every moment from the set up to the send off, without being intrusive. The finished photos -- over 500 -- are amazing! I laughed and cried seeing all the special moments and emotions he captured on film. He truly excels at the photo-journalistic style, while also providing beautiful formal photos. And, he provides all of this at an extremely reasonable price. I highly recommend tomK photography to any bride!
Tom is the most affordable, most professional, and most artistic photographer we found. He is so easy and fun to work with, and gives you nothing but the best. His packages are the most reasonable we found, and you receive a lot for your money. He is an honest businessman, and will not take advantage of you. His pictures were personal, and told our wedding story beautifully. We cannot say enough good things about our experience with him, and it would be hard to find anyone better!
My fiance and I had interviewed 6 photographers before deciding to go with Tom. We found him to be very honest and upfront about all of his costs and services and we really appreciated that. He was very easy to talk to and we had such a great vibe from him. Tom took some fabulous engagement photos of us and even more brilliant pictures of the wedding ceremony and reception. His staff is awesome and between the two of them at the wedding, they captured some of the most candid moments between ourselves and our guests. We also appreciate his creativity and would recommend him to everyone we know.
Tom is absolutely amazing! He did our engagement photos, bridal portraits, and all our wedding photos! We couldn't have asked for a better value for our money... He was by far the most affordable photographer we found that took quality photos. His response time was outstanding... We received our engagement and bridal photos less than 2 weeks after each shoot, and our wedding photos just one month after the wedding! And he is very timely about answering emails and any questions we have had along the way. He is very professional and good at listening to and knowing what we wanted out of our photos. He took the time to get to know us and our taste and captured it perfectly. Our photos are so beautiful, I find myself looking at them often, even now 3 months after the wedding! I would recommend Tom over and over again... You can't go wrong with him!
Tom is just wonderful and very professional. We received tons of compliments on all our wedding pictures. Thank you very much! We will definitely keep you in mind for future portraits.
Tom and Kiley where amazing to work with. They made my wedding day unforgettable.
Tom and his assistant KJ were extremely helpful, and the price was extremely competitive. It would be very tough to surpass their quality in the north Texas region.
Tom and his assistant were wonderful! We had such a casual wedding that we did not have the opportunity to visit with Tom beforehand and they were just "thrown into" a setting to take pictures. The photographs turned out beautifully and we plan to use Tom and his staff again in the future for our family pictures!
We have so many amazing pictures to choose from to remember our wedding day. We have all of the pictures we wanted and them some! So glad we had him there.
Tom and his staff were amazing. My new husband and I have beautiful engagement and wedding photos! Tom worked with our teeny tiny wedding budget, and provided so many extra benefits that I never expected. I couldn't have been happier with TomK Photography!!
I loved Tom K Photography. He made the photography one less thing I had to worry about during the wedding planning. Tom made sure that the photography provided at the wedding was perfect. The photos and album he designed were amazing!!
I have really enjoyed working with tomk photography. Tom really worked with me and my husband. I had to make several time changes and my husband is not a fan of his picture being taken. Tom was awesome. He was patient and willing to do whatever was necessary to capture our special day. He took like 1000 pictures. They were beautiful pictures. I would recommend and have recommend him to everyone.
Working with Tom was an absolute blessing! We have had such awesome feedback from our friends and family who were involved in our special day and were able to meet Tom and his staff. More importantly, we recieved awesome feedback from the end results....the pictures! We will absolutely be returning to Tom for any future special events that we want captured on film as well as telling all our friends and family about him.
Our pictures were artistic, creative, and beautiful. I highly recommend Tom for any photography needs.
TomK Photography did EXECEPTIONAL pictures of my wedding. I received amazing discs full of pictures, for myself and my wedding party, as well as photo DVDs of pictures from the ceremony. Phenomenal. I would recommend this photographer to anyone!!
I've had the pleasure of working with Tom at two different bridal shows. He is a true professional and takes fantastic photos! It's also great to be able to work with genuinely nice people, which is something I can definitely say about Tom.
Tom and Linda Knapik don't take pictures, they are photographic "artist" that create memories that you will cherish for a lifetime. True professionals in every sense of the word.
If you are looking for quality and professionalism combined with very caring people then tomK photography is the place for you. They are hard working and dedicated to capturing your "story" in pictures for you to remember forever. Make sure you take the time to meet with Tom and Linda to discuss their fantastic prices and packages. You will not be sorry you did!
Exceptional photography from a true pro!
