The Best Photographer!! Highly Recommend!!

Tomas is hands down the best photographer!! If I could give him more than 5 stars, I would! You will not regret hiring him for your special day and engagement shoot.

We interviewed several top/luxury wedding photographers in Los Angeles and Bay Area and had a very difficult choice to make. We are so happy that we chose Tomas! We could not be happier! He has exceeded our expectations over and over again! Not only is he an incredible photographer, but he is also kind, compassionate, and caring. When we were still making our decision, Tomas took the time to check in with us gently to see if we had any other questions. He also did a last minute call one weekend with us to help with our decision.

Tomas has a very quick response time and genuinely spends time to get to know you. I feel that Tomas cares about me as a person and as his client. We are not just another business transaction to him. That is hard to find, especially in the world of wedding vendors. He is not only our wedding photographer, but now a friend to us both! There need to be more kind people like Tomas in the world. His messages and replies are some of the kindest and most thoughtful you will ever receive. He even took time to wish us a Merry Christmas and send kind words for the holidays!

When we were planning for our engagement shoot, he had attire suggestions as well as location suggestions and ideas. We had an incredible engagement photo shoot at Pasadena City Hall and the LA Arboretum. Both of us felt a little nervous going into the shoot, but Tomas helped us relax and have a great time. He has such a fun personality. We trusted his process and his directions for various poses. Tomas also let us take several photos with our little goldendoodle. Our photos look incredible!! He captured our love so beautifully! The photos are gorgeous, luxurious, romantic, and timeless. Some luxury photographers are wonderful but their photos look very posed or the couple does not look comfortable. However, Tomas's photos do not look posed at all and are overflowing with love and many smiles. We have been incredibly grateful with the outpouring of love from our family and friends over our photos. Everyone loves them!

Additionally (I will post a specific review on her page), his wife Agne is one of the top makeup artists/hair stylists in Los Angeles (owner of Beauty Affair) and is also incredible and one of the sweetest people you will meet in your life. She made me look so beautiful for my engagement shoot! Check her out as well if you are looking for a makeup artist and team.

We are so excited for our wedding this summer and to see Tomas and Agne again!

You won't regret it, BEST photographer!!

HIGHLY recommend The Big Affair! Tomas absolutely blew us away with both our wedding and engagement photoshoots. From the moment we met Tomas he ensured we felt comfortable and relaxed in front of the camera. My husband and I hadn't done a shoot together before but Tomas patiently guided us through different poses to find our groove, and boy did it pay off in the end photos! His attention to detail, creative eye, and dedication to getting "the shot" is second to none. Not only do we have so many great photos to choose from but working with Tomas was an absolute dream. He is a kindhearted and fun person that I hope to have the pleasure of working with again. Would give him 10 stars if I could. Thank you Tomas!
