About Tom Jeavons Photography

 
Hi my name is Tom, I’m a professional Wedding Photographer and I love my job. I view every wedding as an exciting and new story to tell. In fact as you can gather from this site I have a passion for all things photographic and my camera rarely leaves my side. Great photography helps to create memories and evoke emotions long after the event. Whether you’re trying to remember how you felt when she came down the aisle, when the ring wouldn’t fit on her finger or the innocence of your child at play. I can help you to capture these moments leaving you with images you’ll want to treasure and share.
 
I’m a laid back and easy going photographer, preferring to capture candid moments over staged or posed portraits, however I recognise the need for these types of shots and am happy to cater for most tastes. Generally though I prefer to be a fly on the wall capturing genuine emotions and moments throughout the day. I find that following, a wedding for example, the couple are always delighted to see the results from my sneaking around; although I prefer the term artistic snooping!
 
Choosing the right photographer is not just about the quality of the photographs, you also need to consider the person behind the camera as the quality of the relationship, no matter how brief, will show through on the images. I like my sessions to be lighthearted and fun as I want my clients to enjoy their experience. I find that having a good sense of humour and boundless patience are key ingredients to a successful photo shoot.
 
I am very aware how important the images are to my clients especially those one off moments, such as weddings and special events. For this reason I ensure that all of their images meet my exacting standards prior to being released, as such I undertake the whole process from capturing the images through to editing and processing them. I hope you enjoy my photographs, please contact me to register your interest or if you have any queries.

  • "Couldn't be happier!"
    Katie .S on 11 June 2019

    We couldn't be happier that we chose Tom as our wedding photographer! He was so easy and fun to work with and had time for everyone, all our guests commented on how great they thought he was. The photos are amazing and he even produced some sample ones for us during the meal. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Tom to anyone.

  • "Could not be happier"
    This testimonial was entered by Tom Jeavons Photography on 17 May 2019

    Tom was the photographer for my daughters wedding and I could not be happier with the photographs. It was an absolute pleasure to have Tom around us on the day, he has a wonderful manner, he is very calm and he has managed to capture everything without imposing too much on the day. Tom's photographs are beautiful and I love how he captures all the natural moments, which in my opinion make the best photos. Tom is a real people person, he managed to give clear direction to the guests whilst keeping everything fun and light hearted. I would highly recommend Tom to anyone thinking of booking him for their wedding, in fact I am already receiving messages from others who have seen his work on my Facebook page. - 18/4/19

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the price of your service?

My Prices vary. I tailor my prices to the wedding and am able to make some concessions depending on my availability, time of year and the venue. I offer a range of extras such as a second photographer, wedding albums, wall art, engagement shoots and trash the dress sessions. These can be negotiated as part of a package before or after booking. What I care most about is creating beautiful images that my clients will cherish and be proud to display. I don't want the price to be the main reason for booking or not booking me as your photographer, if I am a good fit for your wedding then I would be happy to tailor a package to suit your budget.

What services do you offer?

I offer a range of extra services including Engagement Shoots, albums and second photographers.

What does the wedding package include?

A pre-wedding consultation – It’s good to meet up and get to each other so you know exactly what to expect on the big day. Wedding photography at times to suit you – I will document as much of the day as you want. Post processing – All the images will be carefully edited and processed by myself to my exacting standards. USB – All of the images will be given to you as high resolution digital files on a USB. Online gallery – Accessed through your own client ID which can be shared with friends and family.

Do you cover more than one wedding a day?

Absolutely not, you will you be my main priority on the day and as such will have my undivided attention.

Are you able to travel?

Travelling is one of my favourite things so I would love to travel to your wedding. I go all over the uk and will travel worldwide for a good wedding. There is an extra cost for expenses (Flights and accommodation).

What is the charge for travelling?

I charge the cost of basic flights and accommodation, if I am not going to be able to work for a number of days due to travel then there will be a charge of £200 per day.

What style of photos do you take?

I am mainly a documentary styled photographer, I like to capture moments as they happen. I find that there are an abundance of such moments at weddings so why force people to pose. For the couples photos I will pose slightly, however, I like to keep these poses to a minimum as I want to capture the couple being natural and comfortable with each other.

What kind of technology do you use?

I use the latest mirrorless cameras (Fuji X-T3) I have two of these on me plus I bring spares just in case I need them. I also use prime lenses mainly 16mm f/1.4 and 56mm f/1.2. I will have a range of other lenses with me but find that these two suit my style in most situations. I back up my photos to 2 memory cards per camera in case a card fails (It's happened to me only once and I had a back up). I use high quality San Disk Etreme Pro memory cards for the best results. I will then back up the images to an external hard drive when I get back to my computer, these will then be backed up again to two further hard drives prior to the photos being edited. I use a Mac for editing the photos.

Do you use a specific technique or innovative approach?

I use a range of techniques in my work to suit the conditions. I love contrasty images so will use light and dark to create some drama for example a dark room with a window. I will also use off-camera flash in some situations to provide rim lighting, to compete with the sun or to highlight the mist of hairspray during getting ready shots. I like to use a wide aperture to blur the background and keep my subject sharp, I usually shoot at f/1.4 or f/1.2 for this reason. On Sunny days I can achieve this with a neutral density filter or through the use of the electronic shutter on my cameras. I like to photograph from low and high perspectives to create more interesting and dynamic composition.

Do you offer any tool to display the photos online?

Yes all of my clients can access their photos from an online gallery, they will receive a Client ID and this can be shared with their friends and family so that they can see the photos. They will also have a password to download the photos. There is an IOS and Android app which they can download for free from the app store and this will make it even easier to view their photos on their mobile devices.

What''s the delivery time for photographic report?

I aim to have the photos edited and delivered within 2 - 6 weeks, typically the photos are delivered within 2 weeks it is only in rare circumstances that this time period is exceeded.

How do you work?

I am a relaxed and calm photographer, I like to put people at ease and make them comfortable during photo shoots. I'm like 90% of the public, I hate having my photo taken, therefore I don't expect people to warm to the idea if they can't warm to me. I am very much aware that you will spend most of your day in the presence of your photographer, I think it is really important that we get on well and that I get the best out of you, so I work hard to make you and your guests feel at ease. Most people say that working with me was like having another guest at their wedding.
