Thomas Hooke Photography
Candid. Natural. Authentic.
I want you to have amazing pictures and I believe the best photos come from moments that happen naturally.
Before the wedding day, I will work with you on your timeline, making sure we streamline the photo process so that you can spend most of your day enjoying yourself with your guests. During portraits, I will guide you through the process and talk to you so that you look your natural best and feel comfortable. The rest of the day – I let the events unfold, without interfering, and capture it as it happens.
As a small boy, I would sit for hours watching my mother Hand-color Portraits for a local photographer, during the cold winter months, by a fire in our family room. From watching, I began taking my own pictures with my first box camera. Fast forward to a restless twenty-something working as a Microbiologist. Taking weddings and portraits on weekends because that was a lot more fun. Eventually, I graduated college with an M.A. in Photography and started out in Chicago, by assisting numerous photographers, shooting everything from oranges to weddings. I have been fortunate to have worked all over the world. Photography is more than a job, it’s an avocation, a passion, it's what I do.

The Dream Photographer
Literally I don’t have enough words to tell you how awesome Thom was, an absolute dream to work with. During our pre-wedding shoot Michael and I were at ease straight away, we laughed lots and the photos turned out just awesome. Thom did such an amazing job on our wedding day, he managed to capture so many wonderful moments even those we missed! The photos are just out of this world and tell the story of our day so perfectly. Don’t book your wedding until you have booked Thom – you need him for your wedding!Sent on 12/31/2018

Bad weather....Great wedding shots
Thom was a true professional. His years of experience and his love of shooting weddings, was evident when our daughters wedding didn't quit go as planned. Our outdoor wedding had to be moved inside because of inclement weather. He captured the wedding beautifully. His confidence and professionalism was evident. I didn't worry one minute that he wouldn't deliver on all his promises. Great Job.
