Brisbane Wedding Photographer – Tom Hall Photography

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.

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!

Weddings at Tiffany’s Open Day 2016

Weddings at Tiffany’s Open Day 2016

I was recently returned to the Weddings at Tiffany’s Open Day 2016 to exhibit my photography for a third year. It’s no secret I love the venue, it’s staff, the food, the incredible view, and the real sense of community that Tiffany’s has created.

This year things were a tad different in that I spent a little more time behind the camera. In between speaking with couples at my stand and annoying other suppliers at theirs, I managed to photograph just a few of the many things that took place on both days.

Then at the end of the weekend I had the honour of photographing a rather on-the-fly styled wedding shoot. With a venue full of very creative people and Tiffany’s ridiculously talented and very keen wedding staff (oh yeah, let’s not forget the immeasurable rapport between us all), it made perfect sense for us to throw ourselves in and create something together. This was a true team effort with everyone involved giving it his or her undivided attention. There’s nothing more rewarding than working with a group of people who’ve left their egos at home; simply bringing along their enthusiasm and a goal to enjoy creating… together.

I would like to thank all who threw themselves in (listed below). I loved working with you and I hope we can do it again sometime soon!

I’d also like to thank Kelly, David, DP and Shu Shu! You’re an absolute powerhouse in the wedding industry! You’ve got cool heads and warm hearts. You’re the kind of people others love to work for. I see it every time I visit – your staff striving their best to please you because they value your respect and approval so much!

I’m very pleased to share this small portion of the collection of images captured during Tiffany’s amazing Open Day weekend…
