Hi, I am Tom.

I first fell in love with photography while travelling around Australia and South East Asia. I snapped everything I saw and now take my camera with me everywhere! Sometimes I have to be reminded by my wife that she isn’t a model and trekking up a mountain to get the ‘perfect’ shot isn’t a date... 

I found that chocolate bribes help!

My style is all about capturing moments that are natural and full of fun and emotion. My editing reflects what I see on the day. It is not particularly dark or light, I aim for a timeless look that lasts forever. My perfect wedding day would be being able to capture the natural candid moments as they happen with a couple of 15 minute photo sessions for family photos and private couple photos throughout the day.

I've been shooting weddings for over 4 years and still get excited about every single one! I love getting creative (smoke bombs, sparklers etc) so if you do have a crazy interesting idea just let me know!
