The Wonderful Tom Ellis
My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Tom for both our engagement pictures and our wedding and I can say without a doubt we were so lucky to have found him and gotten the chance to work with him! The pictures he caught are some of our favorite to date and we have many of them proudly displayed around our home.
One of the great things about Tom is that he works with you as a couple – taking your suggestions or ideas you might have found from pictures you have seen – to get some really stunning shots, or if you have a particular word or feel you are going for you can share it and he has enough skills built up over his many years of shooting to pull out different tricks to help achieve what you want from your pictures. His style is realistic and in-the-moment, very much a journalistic style, but he can also do soft and loving, which is a wonderful range to have and captures some truly magical moments when you combine the two. He also can photoshop dragons into your pictures and who doesn’t want that?! :D
His willingness to collaborate and work together, as well as how he explains the process of getting a shot (i.e. how lighting works, background, posing, etc. to achieve what we are after), is really what made us more comfortable; he has years of experience, which gives you confidence in his ability, but he also has a humility and easy going feel that puts you at ease and lets you know that you are in good hands. He also worked with us to create a custom budget within our price range and we never felt like we were being given lesser service because we weren’t paying top dollar.
Personally, the thing I most appreciated is that I was able to share some of my concerns on my appearance during our engagement shoot and he helped coach me through how to hold myself so I could make sure I would be comfortable and happy with the pictures, which I certainly am! He was also very kind when I had reached my limit during posed shots during our pre-wedding pictures and he changed things up to help get me back into the swing of enjoying things once again.
Tom is honest and straight forth, which is something we greatly admire in a person, and he is really just a fun guy to have around. His is the sort of presence you want on your wedding day; someone who is calm and in control while also being very competent at what they do and helping you capture the real and beautiful moments of your day.Sent on 01/13/2020

My wife and I used Tom for our engagement and wedding photos. He takes amazing pictures that capture both the look of the moment and the feel as well. We loved how much he would do to make sure our ideas would work. He was wonderful to work with and has a great eye for beautiful pictures. I am very happy that we went with him for our photography.Sent on 02/07/2020

We hired Tom to take our engagement photos and he did a great job. After we arrived at Snoqualmie Falls, Tom met up with me and told me the best spot to do the proposal at. He captured the moment perfectly for us. After that we went to a few other locations around the Falls to get some more great pictures. He even took us to another off site location to shoot some more photos at. Tom was very professional and fun to work with. He did a fantastic job and I would recommend him to anyone else who is going to get engagement photos done.Sent on 03/20/2020
Mention that you found me on WeddingWire and receive an extra hour of photography time with any of my standard wedding photography packages. This is a $400 value. Does not apply to my Mid-week special packages
Tom Ellis Photography has been one of my top choices for my clients for the past 18 years. He has packages to fit every budget and his style shows in his work - beautiful memories. Tom is a pleasure to work with and gets all the important candid shots that I actually see other photographers miss! I can't say enough about Tom Ellis Photography!
Not only does Tom bring a grounded presence to a wedding day as a photographer, but he is one heck of a nice guy ~ which is an amazing mix for a wedding photographer. I was at a wedding with Tom a few weeks ago and under the pressure and tension of a wedding, you can really "see" what's true. And here is what's true about Tom: He has a smart eye for detail, his images/photos are outstanding, he possesses a great sense of humor and couples absolutely love him!
