Personal, relaxed and exactly what we had hoped for!

Being two non photogenic people, we were really aprehensive about how our photos would look. Tom organised for us to have a preshoot on the coast at sunset, this was perfect for allowing us to get used to relaxing in front of the camera ahead of the big day.
On our wedding day, Tom was incredibly organised, non invasive and flexible. He was polite, well mannered and professional throughout. In addition to the 'standard' wedding shots, he caught the emotion of the day. Tom had a knack of catching the character of our guests when they were at their most relaxed and enjoying themselves. This was by far the most important goal for us and we have some truly wonderful memories to look back on. We couldn't have asked for more.

A magical day at Lusty Glaze, captured perfectly by Tom

We chose Tom as our wedding photographer, it was such a magical day and Tom managed to capture it perfectly. Tom met with us prior to the wedding day and asked what we would like, we explained that we would like as many natural photos as possible.

On the day, Tom made me feel so comfortable. All of our guests commented on how professional Tom was, and how friendly he was with our guests. Once we received our photos back, we could not have been happier or wished for any better. Tom managed to turn the photos around in a matter of days, though he said that was a rarity!

The photos are excellent quality, we have chose to have some photos printed as canvas鈥檚 and the quality is insane. Our guests loved Tom so much that my mum has booked him for her wedding next year!

Over a year later and Tom still keeps in touch. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

馃専馃専馃専The best wedding photographer!馃専馃専馃専

The biggest thank you Tom!! You captured our wedding so beautifully, thank you! We would highly highly recommend Tom if you are looking for a wedding photographer. He鈥檚 very professional, but so kind and relaxed which is exactly what you want on your wedding day. Tom made everyone feel comfortable, including me who finds getting my photo taken very awkward but Tom put me at ease with his calm and understanding nature. Looking through the photos it is clear Tom has made a special effort to make sure there鈥檚 almost a photo of everyone and with a big family and lots of friends that is a challenge. Tom definitely has a gift of recognising faces and taking beautiful photos! You will not be disappointed by the quality either. We are very grateful, thank you Tom!

A dreamy Cornish wedding

A dreamy Cornish wedding (22 years in the making) was the order of our day and we wanted beautiful photos to tell our story; that is exactly what Tom did. Our criteria was not that of the traditional posed group photographs but of our family and friends enjoying and sharing our magical day. We wanted the laughter, the conversations, the enjoyment, the looks and those funny little moments all captured in those brief seconds in time, the ones that are not seen on the day; Tom captured them all!

Tom was with us all day from when we were getting ready until the evening dancing was well under way just mingling in with our guests taking those all important shots and to be honest we almost forgot he was there ! He made us all feel very relaxed and comfortable even taking impromptu requests from some of our guests. The results were 'Epic' :-) to use one of Tom's expressions!

Our 'engagement shoot' ,which we were a bit unsure about as its not really what we do, was amazing... it was far from a traditional shoot on a very windy day on some Cornish sand-dunes in Rock with our beloved Scotty dog Maggie and the results were stunning. We were so so pleased and from then on had no doubts that Tom was the man for our wedding.

Communication all the way through with Tom have been brilliant, because of the distance between us email and zoom became our best friends. If you are looking for a photographer to capture the heart and soul of your special day in a story board of images that are unique and just naturally stunning, Tom is definitely your man. Tom is a lovely genuine person who is passionate about his photography and cares about the people he is working with. We really could not recommend him highly enough - 5 stars without a doubt,

Thank you Tom from a very happy Mr & Mrs Wattfield :-)

PS - By the way, he loves sweets to keep him going throughout the day!
