I'm Tom, a documentary wedding photographer based in Crouch End, North London, covering the UK and beyond. I love capturing moments of people being awesome, and where better to do that than weddings!
I enjoy good coffee, have been known to do a bit of running, and derive most of my life philosophy from the Armando Iannucci Shows. I married my wife Alice in 2015, and can highly recommend this whole marriage lark!
Outside of weddings, I love to hone my skills shooting people doing what they love, whether it's sports or street/travel photography. And whenever I get new kit I always test it out with a photo of our two cats, Buffy and Willow...
“The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.” ― Dorothea Lange
My approach would be described as documentary or candid photography. That means that you've invested a lot of effort in making your day be your own, and it's my job to capture it how it is. There's nothing better than snapping a genuine laugh!
A good photo should always tell you something - whether it shows you how much fun your guests had, or reminds you of that brief moment of calm you had together after the ceremony, I want to give you photos that you'll look at in 10 years time and be transported straight back to the big day.
I want to tell the real story of your wedding, lots of candid shots and little details, without intruding on you and your guests or spending hours shouting at you to pose.
My passion is documenting the people in the world around me. It's what makes me grin with excitement when I snap someone mid laugh, and it's what I look for when I make images outside of weddings.
It's easy to get caught up by the wedding industry - magazines, fairs, pinterest, all telling you need to buy this and hire that.
Ultimately I think it's important to remember what a wedding is: a time for you to celebrate your relationship with your friends and family. It's about you, but it's also about your guests and celebrating together with them. And that's what I think your photos should remind you of when you dust off that album in years to come.

Andy photographed our wedding!
Andrew is one of the few people out there taking interesting running shots. A big influence who inspired me to up my game! And to start shooting 35mm film...
I love Beardy's cycling shots, and his dedication to climbing trees just to get the right angle is second to none.
Valerie is a street photographer with a fantastic eye for light and shape. She has some pretty sneaky techniques that come in handy at weddings, too.
Katherine shoots weddings on medium format film, which is pretty cool for starters. Her work is so good it makes me angry...
