Brisbane Wedding Photographer – Tom Hall Photography

Hi, my name is Tom Hall and I am a Brisbane Wedding Photographer. Firstly, thank you for visiting my website. Considering Brisbane has so many wedding photographers, it means a lot that you’ve chosen to see what I’m about.

Brisbane Wedding Photographer

 

 

My Style

Your wedding day is about you – not me. My job as a photographer is to retell your story, not mine.
I strive to create the kind of atmosphere where people feel relaxed, happy and free to be themselves. I want for you to be completely at ease while knowing that if you ever need any assistance, I’m there for you – all day. This is why I stay for 12 hours. The story of a wedding doesn’t start at the ceremony and end at the start of the reception. A wedding day is exactly that; a day!  Considering your wedding is such an important once-in-a-lifetime event, I feel there’s no other option but to ensure all of it is captured.

My wife and I didn’t book a photographer for our whole day, so I can tell you first hand that this is something we now regret. I wish we had images of Sarah getting ready, showing all the joy and anticipation she would’ve felt before turing up to the church. I wish we didn’t just have photos of a dummy cake cut and fake bridal waltz in an empty reception room. I wish we had images of our guests enjoying themselves and sharing in what was the best day of our lives, but we don’t. We have 1/3 of the story. Now I can imagine some of you may be saying, “Well at least you have those four hours!” and you’d be right. We’re very grateful we have those hundred or so images. However, the rest of the day that was filled with just as much magic is now reliant on memory – which I’ll be first to admit is slowly fading, and the every year my mind can recall fewer and fewer details that weren’t captured in photos.

This is why I do my upmost to ensure that every single couple receives a collection featuring 12 hours of their wedding day, not 4, 6 or 8. I don’t ever want for my clients to know what it’s like to feel regret they didn’t have they whole wedding photographed.  

Behaviour

I’m not a bossy or overly controlling photographer. I don’t believe being a photographer affords me a sense of entitlement, so you won’t find me entering a room in a way that ensures everyone knows. I am too honoured to be sharing your special day to be anything but grateful. I’m proud to say I am always happy and easy going when I work. After all, I love what I do!

Posing

If you’re not keen on the idea of posing there’s no need to be concerned. I love to capture weddings in a reactive and candid fashion.
However, if you feel a little posing might suit your wedding photography, but you require a little guidance when it comes time for the location images after the ceremony, I’m only too happy to help. I promise I will ensure the process is fun, easy and completely natural. If you’re someone who loves posing and getting your swag on, then I’m happy to accommodate you as well. After all, before weddings, I started my journey photographing models and fashion, so I also thrive in that style and environment. My job is to adapt to the infinite different personality types that exist and I love the fact that no couple is ever the same.

Destinations

As well as being a Maleny and Brisbane wedding photographer, I am more than happy to travel throughout Australia and overseas.

I sincerely hope you enjoy looking through the many pages of my website and seeing some of the many weddings I’ve captured over the years. I invite you to contact me as I would be very happy to photograph your wedding.

Have a great day or evening.

Clear Mountain Lodge Wedding

Clear Mountain Lodge Wedding

Hey babe, I’ve had an awesome day at work today. I finally got to photograph Kirsty and Brodie’s Clear Mountain Lodge Wedding. Poor things had to change their venue because the place they’d originally booked turned out to be pretty useless. I’ve shot at that other wedding venue before and it was clear to me then that their love for weddings had become a distant memory. I’ve decided I won’t be taking on any more bookings for couples getting married there.

Thankfully though Kirsty and Brodie’s new choice of venue up on Clear Mountain employs a young wedding coordinator named James who obviously loves what he does. He took such great care of them and bent over backwards to make sure their wedding was perfect, and it was.

What a wedding, honey! I felt so inspired all day. Brodie was present at every moment and totally fixated on Kirsty who looked incredible wearing the most stunning Justin Alexander gown and flower crown. You know I love flower crowns and that I’ve arranged shoots with models just so I photograph them. You can imagine my excitement when James brought that large arrangement of flowers into Kirsty’s prep room. I think I gasped when I saw it!

Speaking of prep rooms, guess who was doing the makeup? Sue McLaurin! What a champion! She’s such a great person and ridiculously talented too! That lady can’t put a foot wrong. It never ceases to amaze me how perfect her work is! Every time I walk into a room and see her standing there I feel an immense sense of relief. If Sue’s working on the makeup, the bride’s going to feel incredible – which works just fine for me!

Sue wasn’t the only person there who’s one of the best in the business. Bill Scurry was at the wedding too! The man’s a legend! Sure he’s great at what he does and performs an amazing ceremony, but I think the reason he’s such a brilliant celebrant is because he’s such a lovely human. Bill’s the gentleman who was the celebrant at my sister Amanda’s wedding. Bill’s the person I compare everyone else to. He sets the standard in my opinion.

I loved Brodie and Kirsty’s Clear Mountain Lodge wedding! I love that I got to photograph it! They were so cool! When we went off site to capture some location portraits we took a dual cab work ute and Kirsty even sat in the front which got everyone’s attention. It’s not every day you see something like that. It would’ve been a real buzz for people driving past. Then when we got to the creek they were rock hopping and doing whatever they needed to to get the photographs. Then just as I thought things couldn’t get better, as we were driving the clouds parted and the sky turned on a colour show. We just kept jumping out of the ute and literally photographing here, there and everywhere! It was awesome. They were so keen and they took direction beautifully. Kirsty and Brodie were without a doubt two of the most invested people I’ve ever worked with.

I can’t wait to process their images and show you how beautiful their day was. I love you Sarah and I love that I have a job that continually reminds me just how brilliant it is to be with the one you love!  Clear Mountain Lodge Wedding

2016 Queensland Professional Photography Awards

2016 Queensland Professional Photography Awards

I’m very happy to be able to write this blog today. I just won three Silvers at the 2016 Queensland Professional Photography Awards. I would like to thank the AIPP and the judges for recognising my wedding photography. I can’t explain the feeling I get when my peers react positively to what I’ve created for my clients. Perhaps the best way is to tell you that I felt like dancing when I found out!

At the end of the day all I’ve ever wanted is to positively affect others and to feel like I’m doing my piece to contribute. Awards like this help me feel like I’m moving in the right direction toward that goal.

I’d like to also thank my clients. There are so many photographers out there I know, but the fact that you’ve chosen me is an honour I will always be grateful for. Thank you for trusting my vision and for remaining in the moment with each other. It was a true privilege to be a part of your beautiful weddings and I’m so glad we were able to win these awards together!

I’ve reserved the most important thank you for my wife, Sarah. You are a legend! Your patience and understanding is what makes all of this possible. I work ridiculously long hours and so much of my time is spent at the computer and not beside you on the couch, but you never complain. All you’ve ever done is support me, and I love you so much for that (as well as for a billion other reasons). Thank you for being such a good woman to me and loving me like no one else ever has! I love you!

I’m stoked to be able to share these winning images with you all. I hope you like them.

Thanks for reading!

Engaged in the Moment

Engaged in the Moment


I go on and on quite a bit with people about owning their own space and being together in the present moment. After all, that’s where the magic happens! I’m not sure some people completely understand me though because they’re not engaged in the moment while I’m explaining it, lol 🙂

Tony and Lacey quickly found their moments in the present! They were right there with each other and it was such a buzz to photograph. Creatively speaking, I got inspired, big time! They had travelled from Brisbane to the Gold Coast so Lacey could get her makeup done. Then they drove all the way up to Bribie to hang out on the beach and capture some images! When they got out of their car they were still bubbly and excited. Straight away I liked them! It was clear that they really cared about what we were there to do.
 
Then within a few minutes (after I’d made it clear I was there for them and not the other way around), they were owning every second! They got completely lost in each other’s company and forgot about me for long enough that I could capture their natural and real interactions. I was in my element because of how they were with each other. I want for ALL of my clients to feel this comfortable that quickly! That way every time they look at their images they’ll see the real connection they shared in front of the camera and forever treasure those moments.

For we people photographers there isn’t any greater reward than to work with others who are comfortable in our presence and trusting of our judgement! Thank you so much Tony and Lacey for a great afternoon!
