    Tom was amazing, he worked so well with everyone and I gave him a huge list of all the photos we wanted taken and he was so helpful to get all the photos we needed. He was patient as w had a bridal party of over 20 people, he was creative in ways to take amazing photos-- the photos are absolutely beautiful! the turn around time for our proofs was so fast-- he worked with us however we needed-- I would highly recommend him and his wife as well. I wish we had used them for video as well, but we made a bad decision on that and went with a "friend" big mistake. Tom is professional and everything he does is top notch! We are now using him to help us fix our wedding video which is basically a terrible dark camera video. Tom works miracles and I know it will be just as beautiful as our pictures and photo album- thanks to him for getting the important shots of the bride walking down the isle, being introduced.. etc.. if it wasnt for those photos we would have no documentation of those memories- He is the best! and i cant say thank you enough!- Kelli and Dave Manzo

    Tom and Shirley were great! They took lots of pictures and were very flexible. They had no problem taking pictures at different locations for us and they came out amazing! They were great to work with and would highly reccomend them to future brides and grooms!

    I cant say enough good things about Tom... To start he gave me the best price around, and i mean the best. He stayed in contact with me all along up until my wedding date arrived. I was completely at ease with Tom and as all of us brides know it can be a tiny bit of a stressful time. He was wonderful at the wedding. Everything was great. My pictures were done about a week after i got back from my honeymoon, how aweseome is that?! And i literally cried (my husband got teary eyed as well) when i looked at the pictures for the first time. I was absolutely taken back by the quality and the moments he captured. I was just floored. Dont even think twice about using Tom... He is the greatest.
