    Thom is the best to work with!

    Thom was great from start to finish! From the moment I reached out, he was very responsive and answered all my questions in a timely manner. He was also willing to travel from Lake Geneva to Milwaukee with no additional fee which was SO appreciated as most photographers will not entertain that idea. Thom was an hour early to our session, and because we were early, we got almost 1 hour of additional photos as added value!! Amazing. He also gave us a link to ALL photos for a very great cost. Thom was fun and easy for both my fiancé and I to work with. 10/10 would recommend him to anyone!!!

    Wonderful Experience and Beautiful Photos!

    We hired Thom to shoot our wedding near the end of August. Not only was he professional in his demeanor, but he was also fun and kept things relaxed. He offered a great balance between posing us for beautiful pictures and letting us be our natural selves. Both the posed and more candid shots turned out wonderful! He was also very accommodating and patient when taking shots with our adorable yet uncooperative young daughters :) We appreciated his direction and relaxed attitude throughout the entire day.
    Thom’s pricing is extremely reasonable for the service that he provides which is exactly what we were looking for.
    We had a fantastic and fun experience and we are so happy that we choose Thom to capture our special day!

    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!

    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.

    The Right Photographer

    Our photos were unbelievable! I have gotten so many compliments on them. We had some issues because of the different strong personalities among family members and Thom was able to make everyone comfortable and forget their differences I didn’t think it would be possible. He brought along a second photographer and their was always someone in the right place at the right time. I highly recommend Thom you will not be disappointed.

    A Vendor who felt like a friend

    My partner and I searched through pages and pages of portfolios until, I found EXACTLY what I was looking for in Thom’s work. His work is incredible and as an added bonus he is a super person. He is so good with communication and his relaxed shooting style made our day so smooth. Look no farther! You will not be disappointed!

    One thing that really stood out is that Thom really enjoyed doing the photography. He always cheerful, attentive and took every request with a smile. Also, he seemed to float in at every critical moment, always kept the bride, groom and wedding party center of attention and then floated out, a real artist. Thom was fun to talk to, energetic, courteous and probably the most professional photographer I have had the pleasure to meet.

    I actually chose Thom based on his reviews and his relaxed journalistic style! He came highly recommended and definitely did not disappoint! I could not have been happier with a photographer. He was the photographer and not a service. I never had any trouble getting a hold of thom and he answered the million questions and concerns I had even within days of our wedding. Thom arrived early, which was fantastic! Throughout the day I never worried once, as he was capturing every moment in real time. I would highly recommend to anyone who wants professionalism, vision, and a genuine care and respect from their photographer. He took almost 2,000 pictures! Because of Thom’s flexibility and creativity, I have pictures from my wedding that I'm going to cherish for years to come. We had such a great time, he was professional and so casual, everything was easy and stress free. He was amazing!!

    Thom Hooke was a dream come true! He was such a pleasure to work with and made it so much fun for Us and everyone involved. Our photos were unbelievable! I have gotten so many compliments on them how we all look like we are having so much fun, and it's because we actually were! Instead of the typical posed candid shots where your told to be laughing and not looking at the camera, We really were laughing and having fun! That is because Thom was so fun and made all my girls so comfortable it was so enjoyable. You can truely see it in our photos. Thom was extremely dedicated he even showed up before we did at the venue and had already scouted the whole place. I'm usually not one to show off pictures of myself or even post much on social media, but I can't help myself with these photos. I have shown them off so much and the reactions are so incredible! We could not be happier with our experience with Hooke photo and I recommend him one hundred percent.

    Thom is seriously experienced and thorough. Beyond knowing ambient lighting he brings extensive commercial studio lighting skills into his work and gives catalog worthy results. If you want someone who isn't going to churn out formulaic shots and give you something both professional and unique hire Thom. He's the real deal!

    I could not be more thrilled with my wedding photos! Thom Hooke is an incredibly talented photographer with a creative eye. Not only did my photos turn out beautifully, but we had such a great time taking them. Thom is great at making you feel relaxed so that the "real you" shines through. He is also great at handling a crowd and making sure you get the shots you want, along with the ones you would never think to get. I highly recommend Thom Hooke and look forward to using him in the future for family photos.

    Last minute shoot of our private vows

    I emailed just a week before deciding that I needed a photographer to capture the vows to our tiny ceremony. I messaged him and with in 48hrs had a quote, time, and contract on the way. I was late from my hair appointment. Thom already had the pictures started and the room cleared so he could capture the final touches of us getting ready, he caught a great first look of my husband when I walked in. All in all the shots turned out great we got the flash drive of all the photos. Everything was quick, professional, and on time.

    Mixed Experience

    Our wedding was in November, and we had a religious ceremony and an indoor reception. For one of the lowest prices in our area, we got over 2,000 photos of our day, and we got to keep them all! The photos largely were great, and there was a nice mix of "nice," "funny," and "candid" photos. The reason we didn't give a perfect 5 star review is that we did have a few instances where stress was added instead of alleviated. We had a miscommunication about how dinner would be served to our photographer, and we had some confusion over certain photos we wanted, and this became a difficulty throughout the day. Our engagement photos were wonderful, and that experience was stellar, so it is entirely possible that our wedding day was an anomaly, hence us ultimately recommending this photographer and his services.
