About

On Hitched.co.uk since 2022

Last update: May 2024

Hey! Im Tom, an award winning wedding photographer based in Cheshire but regularly working all over the UK. My style of photography isn’t scripted or staged, it’s just pictures of things happening at a wedding – it’s you, as you are, who you are, what you feel. I don’t do cheesy poses or fake smiles. I’m all about authentic emotion, the stolen kisses, the belly laughs, the tears of joy, the kids being kids and everything in between! To put it simply, I do real moments, captured beautifully.

My approach on a wedding day is relaxed and informal as I want you to feel comfortable with my presence, as if I was just another guest. Even if you are camera shy, you can have stylish, natural wedding photographs that illustrate what a brilliant time you had.

Feel free to reach out, no matter where you're located in the UK or if you're planning a destination wedding - I'd love to connect! Let's schedule a brief video call to delve deeper into your vision and discuss how I can tailor my services to exceed your expectations.

Felt like a wedding guest & friend at our wedding!

Tom was absolutely fabulous. From initially speaking to him through Instagram, to video calls, meeting in person for the first time and then finally the big day. Tom is very professional and completely throws himself into your vision. He was quick to respond to any requests and set up a WhatsApp group to help the communication. You can really tell he has alot of experience and talent.
On the day he had a clear schedule of how he was going to capture the day and most of the time we forgot he was there. Lots of our guests thought he was a friend at the wedding.
We received a few sneak peeks the day after the wedding which really showed how much he cared about us and knew how much that would mean to us. I would have been happy with those few photos they were so perfect! In fact we received many many more.
The price was very reasonable especially for Cheshire and we decided to add on his photo booth last minute which was a big hit and something that made our evening.
Tom was also great with camera shy people (including my husband) and also kids! He really brings your day alive!
Would definitely love to work with Tom again! Sophie & Oliver

Beautiful photos!!

Tom was so helpful all the way through, answering all of my questions quickly. He is down to earth, easy to get on with and so accommodating. We were both so made up with our wedding photos as they were all edited beautifully and they really captured the day perfectly!! One of my favourites is the confetti shot, it really was perfect! Tom and Jacks style was candid and this really suited us as we arnt very natural in front of the camera so it felt like we could be ourselves and really enjoy being with our friends and family.
Reasonable price and would definitely recommend!

Couldn't recommend more

Tom was absolutely amazing! He was so easy to work with and captured our day perfectly. The photographs are more than we ever imagined they would be. He made everyone feel at ease and got a mix of candid and formal shots. We can't thank him enough for capturing our day the way it was. Forever grateful!

Candid, in the moment and perfect shots!

We absolutely loved our experience with Tom. Getting the right photographer was huge for us as we are picture lovers, and post ceremony that's all that is left from your big day! So we wanted true pictures that reflected the fun, love, joy and reality of our day. Tom did not disappoint. He was so down to earth and blended into our day with ease meaning we could relax and be certain he was capturing all of our day to perfection.
We got the shots back SO quick! And now whilst sitting on our honeymoon we've been able to relive the day together again, and are blown away with the results. Thank you so much Tom, you were perfection!

Captured our day beautifully

Tom captured our wedding day perfectly, every photo reflects the moment beautifully. The photobooth was easy to use and very fun for all guests - guests could take home a copy a we got one too (digital also). We also went with a videographer Tom works with, Lewis, and they were both attentive, professional and very friendly - they made everyone feel at ease and captured both formal and beauitful natural photographs. We will cherish these photos for years to come, we are so glad we picked Tom to be our photographer for our important day. Tom is really amazing, he went above and beyond anything we could have expected! He captured beautiful memories to cherish forever ♡

Absolutely Amazing

Tom and Lewis were absolutely amazing, in the run up to the wedding we were totally aware of what was happening, Tom was lovely and most importantly took all of the stress from arranging the photography, vid & Photobooth. On the day they were fantastic, no stress for us at all, the photos are absolutely amazing and got turned around for us to see. I could not have asked for a better experience.

Fantastic from start to finish

We had our wedding planned for June, plans changed and we got married on the 27th Jan 2024. For us, Tom was a top priority. We liaised with Tom arranging a date that was suitable for us both. He was so easy to work with and did everything he could to make sure he would be there for us. He came less than 48 hours after a long flight from America with his family. We had a meeting with Tom before his trip arranging all the little details of the day. He made us feel incredibly confident we could just relax in his capable hands.
The day came and Tom was described by our guests as a “ninja” photographer, sneaking around to get the best angles. Everyone, including ourselves mentioned what a fantastic job he was doing. We felt sad saying goodbye at the end of the night!
The next day came and we received our sneak peeks. Well, what can I say. Just magnificent. No other words to describe what we have seen so far. Exactly how we wanted, natural looking and CANDID. We are so happy with what we have seen that we are so so excited to see the full album of the day. If you are looking for a relaxed, organised and experienced photographer, Tom is it. We can only thank you for such a fantastic job you have done.

Couldn’t ask for better than Tom!

We got married on 26th November 2023 and Tom was amazing. He arrived at 10am and Stayed until around 11pm! We met Tom at the venue prior to the big day to have a walk around and discuss ideas. Tom planned for all weather scenarios, but luckily that rain held off! Compliments from every guest with how attentive Tom was, he even went round the room and said bye to most of the guests personally. You really couldn’t tell that he wasn’t a part of the family at the end of the night! The photo booth was also the perfect addition. We got 100 sneak peaks the day after the wedding and we can’t wait to get the rest. Honestly can’t believe how amazing the first 100 are and were due more! Thank so much Tom. You captured the memories beautifully. A very talented guy.

Captured to perfection

What a day to remember, Tom captured it perfectly. Some formal but mostly very fun shots. The way Tom made everyone feel at ease, natural and just be ourselves.
Photo shoots can sometimes turn into a chore, Tom didn’t make it feel like this, he was a breath of fresh air.
As day turned to night and he saw everyone getting a little merry he got out the photo booth, our guests had lots of fun with it and I ended up with shots my guests really wanted, they turned out great .

Outstanding

Tom was attentive, adaptable and creative. He found the perfect balance between involving himself but not being in your face. He was a joy to work with; adaptable to the needs of the day and really efficient. He went above and beyond what we expected of him. We could not recommend more!

Amazing photographs & lovely guy

I can’t believe how perfect our photos are - Tom did such an incredible joy and was a joy to have our special day. He captured the day and the vibe so perfectly and got our sneak peaks to us the day after the wedding and our whole gallery within three days!! We couldn’t believe how quickly we got them and how beautiful they were.

Tom really listened to what we wanted from the day and made sure that we got it.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Tom to anyone and having seen the photos he did for us our families are in contact trying to book him for their events!

Thank you so much!

Tom was incredible, he made our day. I will forever be grateful

Tom was honestly an absolute dream. Our wedding day consisted of some really special moments but then Tom created some which we now look back on as some amazing photos. He created memories through his creative mind. Tom not only made the whole process incredibly seem less it also was great at communicating with us. If you don’t get the Photo Booth. You are mental. That part of the night when everyone is drunk and wanting to create their own memories that they could just take home with them. 663 photos from the wedding. We haven’t even started with the Photo Booth ones. Also he advised us about an album which we are really pleased we purchased.

Captivating Fun for All!


Working with Tom was an absolute pleasure. He had a warm and friendly demeanor that immediately put us at ease. Throughout the process, they were attentive, responsive and genuinely cared about capturing our vision. On the wedding day, they seamlessly blended into the background, allowing us to enjoy our day while capturing the most beautiful shots. The final photos are a testament to his talent and artistry. Every photo is filled with love, laughter and the special moments that made our day so memorable.

Tom was amazing from start to finish. We were drawn to his amazing candid and beautiful photography style and we are so over the moon we chose him for our wedding. Tom made everyone feel at ease on our big day, we never felt like a camera was in our face or overwhelmed at all, he was a great addition to our guests! He was involved from start to finish and has captured the most beautiful, perfect pictures for which we can't thank him enough. We would highly recommend Tom to anyone who is planning their wedding.
