    I can honestly say – if you are looking for your wedding photos to simply ‘Wow’ then Tom Hall Photography is for you. Every photo is a piece of art in itself. How a bride and groom choose which photo to put on their wall is beyond me! I love them all.

Wedding Photographer Poem

I thought the best way to express my gratitude for an amazing year was to write a wedding photographer poem. Thanks to all of my clients; past and present who have entrusted their special days to me and thank you to the people who have shared their joy and love so openly.

An Amazing Day at the 2014 International Loupe Photography Awards – 13 Awards

Today I found out that I was awarded a bronze title 13 times in the International Loupe Awards for 2014.

It’s the best news I’ve had in ages and I’ve been floating around all day!

Firstly I must thank my wife Sarah! You are my greatest supporter! I work terribly long hours and sometimes this job is not easy, but you’re always there to offer your support and love. I have come to rely on your objective advise – even when you tell me things I don’t want to hear. It’s your honesty that has made me push harder, and without that I would never have gotten to where I am today. I love you and THANK YOU!

I must also thank my wonderful family. They’ve always supported me and bathed me in love, and we artists love the love. I love you all!

I want to also thank all the judges from all of the countries who participated in these awards. None of my images were judge by Australian judges so the fact that my work has been recognised by photographers from all over the world is a massive compliment and my gratitude is unfathomable! Thank you!

I would also like to thank my clients for choosing me to photograph them. There are so many photographers out there and the fact that you chose me is an absolute honour! Thank you!

Finally I would like to thank my supporters! There are so many of you and it’s so heartwarming to know you’re all there. Most of you have never been photographed by me or even met me for that matter, but week in week out you like my work, comment on my blogs and posts, share my images, and just make me feel like a million bucks. I used to scoff when I’d see celebrities telling their fans that they love them, but I completely get it now. I love that you’re all there for me! I love that you support me on the great days and pick me up on the days I don’t feel so great. You all continually teaching me what loyalty is all about. I love you and I thank you so much!

So the awards. I took out:

9 bronze awards in the Wedding category

2 bronze awards in the Portraiture category

2 bronze awards in the Landscape category

I can’t help shaking my head as I write that!

Here are the images that were recognised. Thanks again to everyone involved!

I’ve been a wedding photographer since just after I got married in 2007. For almost 7 years now I’ve been capturing people’s big days and having an amazing time in the process. I’ve established myself and I’ve even managed to win a few awards along the way.

When I first picked up a camera I never thought I would ever become a professional photographer. I always thought I’d end up being a singer. For me, at the time, music was the ultimate form of creativity, and I loved the fact that I could sing and put a smile on so many people’s faces. However, the day I photographed a wedding was the day I experienced the joy of creating something that two people could treasure for the rest of their lives. Sure, writing a song can bring joy to others for a long time, but photography is so much more personal and the rewards I get from that are indescribable! When I discovered this, giving up the dream of becoming a rockstar became a piece of wedding cake!

When I initially made the choice to focus on photography (pardon the pun) more so than my music, a lot of people told me I was stupid and that I was making a huge mistake – a lot of people! Now days though, I think they understand why I made that choice. I think they can now see that I’m truly happy being a wedding photographer. I think they can appreciate that there’s great value in having a job that brings joy to others as well! It’s that very reason that I can’t possibly regret how things have turned out.

How can I regret my decision when I get to meet people like Ross and Rachelle.

I know I thank people a lot, but my gratitude never ceases, so neither should my need to express it:) I want to take this opportunity to thank Ross and Rachelle for booking me and for trusting me with their incredibly special day! I’d like to share some images from their wedding. Ross and Rachelle are amazing people and are the perfect example of why I wouldn’t ever want another job! I can’t help but smile every time I think of their wedding!

I would like to thank the public for voting for me in the Wedding Industry Experts Awards for 2014. I have been named the most popular wedding photographer in Brisbane and Queensland. This is a great honour and I am very happy to learn I have so much support! When I win AIPP awards it’s a great feeling to be recognised by my peers, but to hear that the public supports what I do makes me feel even more special! Honestly, I feel awesome and I owe it all to you – THANK YOU!

Magic Hour Wedding Photography

I bang on and on about Magic Hour and it’s for a very good reason. Light is best about 45 minutes prior to and 15 minutes after sunset. The light is far more flattering and there aren’t as heavy shadows cast. People and nature looks better in magic hour! If you’re planning your wedding timetable, consider allowing enough time for this golden light.

Let your reception know you’ll be back shortly after that so they can perfectly time the service of your entrees. Some receptions may try and angle for an earlier start, but if you’re wanting soft, colourful and buttery wedding images then request they hold off a little for you.

I’m sure they’ll understand:)

Cloudland is a Heavenly Venue for a Wedding Photographer

I’ve photographed a few weddings at Cloudland Brisbane and every time a new client books me for the venue I get excited. With each new visit I discover so many new things to photograph. It’s an inspiring place that results in the kind of imagery I feel blessed to capture. When I’m there it’s not uncommon for me to look at the back of the camera and blurt, “Yes!” It seems that everywhere I turn I’m capturing scenes that make me gasp.

As breathtaking as Cloudland is there’s something that impresses me even more than the design of the venue. It’s the fact that every time I visit I get the strong impression I’m welcome. Their wedding coordinator Jenni Bentley is Brisbane’s best! As far as Brisbane City venues go, I haven’t met anyone who is more passionate about what she does. What’s even more impressive is how naturally hospitality seems to come to her. I’m just the photographer, but still she makes every effort to ensure that I have everything I need. If she’s doing that for me, then you can imagine the kind of care and attention she’s giving to her clients.

What’s more, her staff help to set the kind of tone that makes for a much happier and more relaxed atmosphere. Cloudland is not just a great looking venue, it’s a great looking venue that strives to ensure it’s guests feel right at home. Sure, Cloudland’s a catchy name, but I hope they don’t mind me dubbing it; Brisbane’s Wonderland! It’s a truly amazing place.

After I’ve finished photographing a wedding it’s not uncommon for me to come home and have a look at the images on the monitor straight away. Sometimes I even start editing that evening (which is a bit naughty considering I should be sleeping). I would sleep but after I’ve been creating all day I can’t help but buzz and it makes it difficult to nod off straight away.

Occasionally I’ll even upload a sneaky peak so that my clients can see a sample. I imagine them on their honeymoon wondering if their images are going to look great so this seems like a great way to show them so they can get on with enjoying their trip away.

Speaking of which, here’s an image from a recent wedding I photographed at Glengariff Historic Estate Winery.
