Brisbane Wedding Photographer – Tom Hall Photography

Brisbane Wedding Photographer

Hi and thanks for visiting my website.

My name is Tom Hall (or Tommy if you prefer) and I am a fully accredited Brisbane Wedding Photographer with AIPP honours specialising in (but not limited to) weddings.

I’m in my eighth year of shooting weddings.

Over the last couple of years things have really ramped up and I owe this massive jump in interest and bookings to my friends, family, clients and peers for their recognition, love and support.

Thank you!

My Style

My style is all about keeping things natural!

Your wedding day is not about me! It’s your day – your story, and I am there to interpret it in a way that reflects you, naturally.

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’m there

I’m at your service, not the other way around. 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 require a little guidance when it comes time for the location images after the ceremony, I’m only too happy to help, but I promise I will ensure the process is fun, easy and completely natural.

If you’re someone who loves posing, then I’m happy to accomodate you as well. After all, before weddings, I started my journey photographing models and fashion, so I also thrive in that style and environment.

I Shoot All Day

I shoot all-day because that’s how long a wedding lasts. I can’t imagine not telling the whole story. I understand that other photographers have their reasons for only choosing to stay between 6 and 8 hours, but that’s not an option for me or my clients. The magic happens all day, not just at the ceremony.

Facebook

You can also view my Facebook Photo Stream Here. It has even more images you can check out as well. Feel free to add me on Facebook if you prefer and you can even email there if you’d like things to be less formal.

Destinations

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

I absolutely love weddings and this is why it’s always a privilege for me to be invited to capture such a pivotal day in anyone’s life wherever it is.

I hope you enjoy looking through the many pages of my website and seeing some of the wedding photography I’ve captured over the years.

I invite you to contact me as I would be very happy to help you capture the day in a way you can cherish forever (Did I just use a buzz line? Yep, but it’s the truth).

Have a great day or evening.

Warmest Regards Humanly Possible

Aria

Aria 

If someone was to ask me, “What’s one of your goals in photography?” I‘d tell them it‘s to photograph an unknown person who eventually becomes famous.

The interesting thing about a goal like that is that you don’t know it’s been realised until the person you’ve been photographing becomes well known. Still, that doesn’t stop me shining my little light and trying my best to create awareness.

My eyes are constantly peeled! I’m continually searching for the undeniable. I always find reward in photographing someone or something with a strong ability to communicate and grab the attention of others. At the end of the day my job is to create images that viewers connect with, and the best way I can do that is to photograph those who speak to me the loudest.

Here are a few images of Aria. Aria splits her time between country and beach. While most of us associate these surroundings with a more laid-back lifestyle, Aria is busy – super busy. There’s a lot to do when you’re a creative who seems continually inspired. Aria is an artist! Art is her life. Not only does Aria act, she sings, plays instruments, writes songs, paints, draws and now to my delight, models.

When I first spoke with Aria and her mum Jodi, except for a collection of impressive selfies, modelling wasn’t a part of her life. It still isn’t really – she’s just so busy with other things. However, that’s not to say modelling doesn’t interest her, as I learned when Aria and Jodi came all the way up to visit us here in Queensland. Even though it might not be her first career choice, I have a feeling that modelling may pave the way to either the acting or music career that I’m guessing would bring her far more creative satisfaction.

I know I’m stating the obvious by saying Aria is a natural beauty, but until this test shoot I really had no idea what to expect from her. Sure, I knew Aria’s appearance would lend itself well to photography, but as far as connecting with the camera was concerned I wasn’t fully prepared for just how much raw talent Aria has.

During the test shoot she’d be laughing and goofing around and then as soon as I’d pick up my camera and point it at her Aria would snap into the zone! Some people have an innate and instant sense for what works and Aria is one of them. For me being an artist myself, I find that very inspiring.

When Aria looks at the camera it’s like she’s been there a thousand times before. I’ve seen less communication from models far more experienced. For this test shoot we shot about a hundred frames and I’ve only just started looking at them. So far I’ve shouted, “YES!” 5 times and I’ve probably got a few more in me yet.

I have a feeling that you’ll be seeing a lot more of Aria and I can proudly say I was there at the beginning.

WIEA Most Popular Wedding Photographer

WIEA Most Popular Wedding Photographer

Last night I was laying in bed trying desperately to stay awake until 2am. I wanted to find out how I did in the 2015 Wedding Industry Experts Awards. However, for some strange reason I couldn’t keep my eyes open which usually isn’t too much of a challenge for me, given that I’m a bit of a night owl.

Over the years the Wedding Industry Experts Awards has become the world’s largest wedding industry related people’s choice event. As far as public opinion goes, there’s no greater acknowledgment in weddings, globally.

To be completely honest I was hoping to place somewhere for Brisbane as that would be a great little indication that my clients and my supporters were still liking my work, but when I awoke this morning I got the shock of my life.

I found out that I won:

Most Popular Wedding Photographer in Brisbane

Most PopularWedding Photographer in Queensland

Most Popular Wedding Photographer in Australia

If that wasn’t surprising enough, I also discovered that I was voted by the public as the 2nd most Popular Wedding Photographer in …The World!

http://weddingindustryexperts.com/company/tom-hall-photography/

I must’ve read it a few times before it sunk in and then I rushed out to the kitchen to tell my wife, Sarah! It was a very nice moment!
To say I’ve been happy today would be an understatement. I’ve felt elated ever since finding out.

Thanks so much to all of you for supporting me and for voting for me in these awards. I am truly honoured, overjoyed and sincerely grateful that you took the time to click that vote button to let WIEA know that you support me. That means more to me than you’ll ever know!

Thank you!

Maleny Wedding Photographer

Tom Hall is the best wedding Photographer in Maleny and Brisbane

Maleny Wedding Photographer

….ah what can I say? Maleny never fails to put on a show! I think as well being beautiful, Maleny seems to bring out the best in people – photographer and anyone being photographed alike. It’s hard not to get swept up by Maleny’s undeniable charm, and that’s fine by me!

Just under 5000 people call Maleny home. Some might say that’s an awful lot of amazing location for such a small number of people, but that’s what makes Maleny, well….Maleny. It’s a sanctuary, a quiet place to run away to. Somewhere that continually inspires more romance than anywhere else I’ve photographed to date. If you want to see a wedding party or… ten, all you need do is drive through Maleny on a Saturday afternoon.

Maleny boasts the country’s most awarded wedding venues and the finest food you’ll have the pleasure of eating anywhere. It’s safe to say that Maleny doesn’t disappoint.

With so much on offer there’s never a day where I don’t come home with a camera full of magic. If you’re planning to tie the knot in this beautiful location, I hope you will consider inviting me to be your Maleny Wedding Photographer and capture images that I know you’ll cherish wholeheartedly.

2015 Professional Photography Awards

2015 Queensland Professional Photography Awards

I’ve recently had the honour of receiving 7 silvers at the 2015 Queensland Professional Photography Awards. I received 2 Silvers in Portraiture, 3 Silvers in Illustrative and 2 Silvers in Weddings. To receive one silver is an awesome experience, but to snag 7 made it quite difficult for me not to scream out with joy in the judging room. To say I’m on a high right now would be a gross understatement.

This total was beyond my wildest dreams and pinching myself still hasn’t snapped me out of my disbelief.

I would first like to thank my wife Sarah whose candour has always encouraged me to be far more objective with my work. She has helped me accept constructive criticism and develop a desire to find new ways to improve. Her love and honesty is never failing and I owe so much of my success to her.

I would also like to thank my beautiful Mum and sisters for their endless and lifelong support! I love you all!

Thanks so much to the AIPP judges for recognising my work and for honouring me with these awards. My gratitude is endless!

A gigantic shout-out to Mark Lutz from Inkjet Lab who printed and mounted my images. His work is outstanding and I have won many awards submitting works printed by him! Thank you Mark!

A heartfelt thanks to my favourite model, Jasmin Young. This is our third award together over the last three years. We’ve created images that have won 2 state awards (2013 and 2015) as well as a 2014 International Loupe Award. When it comes to models no one has inspired me more! When we work together it all just falls into place and I can’t tell you how much I value our creative relationship and friendship! Thank you Jas!

A huge thanks must go to my clients for choosing me over all others and for trusting my vision! Thank you so much!

I can’t sign off without thanking the amazing “Weddings at Tiffany’s” in Maleny. They have supported me and sent many wonderful clients my way. Without them I would never have developed such a strong appreciation and understanding of Maleny and all it has to offer. I am so happy that three of these awards were the result of 3 amazing weddings held at their beautiful venue!

Thanks everyone!
