About Tom O'Neal - Marc Howard - TGO Weddings

Tom O'Neal   is a maverick in the world of wedding and people photography, Tom has been capturing the magic of moments for years.  His intuitive connection to people enables him to approach each unique event with a signature of its own.  Reactive photography has been a part of O’Neal’s repertoire long before the term popularized.

Time is definitely on Tom O’Neal’s side. He entered the world of photography via the one on one work he did in the Rock and Roll era of the sixties and seventies.  Privileged to have privately photographed famous musicians and celebrities, he learned how to observe and act on the moment.  “I never work off a formula.  I look for the individual character that tells the story with every session, event, or wedding.  I put people in a relaxed state, and make it fun…”

“When I was photographing rock and roll, the music was a celebration of peace and love.  Weddings are a celebration of life and love…it’s all about the celebration.”

Knowing that important lost moments can never be recaptured, he realized that some of the best shots occur at the least expected moments.  He built his photography career on the art of anticipation. 


Marc Howard began his photographic career training with several top photographers in the Monterey area. In 2001, he began working with TGO on various assignments. In the first wedding he photographed for TGO, the bride was a rocket scientist who wore a bright red dress. He realized then that each wedding has its own individual style to be captured. Since then, Marc has photographed hundreds of weddings from Acapulco to Napa, from intimate immediate families in the redwoods at the Santa Lucia Preserve to lavish affairs spilling out of the grand ballroom at Pebble Beach. Marc's work has been featured in In Style Weddings and various other publications. By combining his candid style with his knowledge of lighting and composition he describes his approach as blending fantasy with reality.

Born and raised in Pebble Beach California, Marc graduated from Robert Louis Stevenson and then earned his Bachelor's of Arts degree from Furman University in South Carolina. Marc has been married to his high school sweetheart for fourteen years and they enjoy spending time with their ten year old daughter.

Tom and his team was nothing but amazing. With the help from the engament photos to the day of the wedding, him and his team made things exciting fun and was a blast to work with. They have been nothing but amazing. I highly recomond this amazing team and Tom. My amazing wedding day would not be the same without them.

We used Marc for our engagement photos as well as our wedding photos. He was great to work with and our pictures turned out amazingly! I am not someone who is comfortable with my picture being taken and he made my husband and I both feel at ease the entire time.
