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. I want you to feel happy and free to be yourselves. 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.

Why do 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 than to ensure all of it is captured.

Behaviour

I’m not a bossy or overly controlling photographer. I am always happy and easy going when I work. 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 will ensure the process is fun, easy and completely natural. If you’re someone who loves posing and getting your swag on, then great. We can do that too! 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

Brisbane Wedding Photographer Awards

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.

Why am I a Wedding Photographer?

Why am I a Wedding Photographer?

 

I’ve been a wedding photographer since just after I got married in 2007. For over 8 years 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.

To be honest I never thought I’d become a Brisbane Wedding Photographer. I always thought I’d end up being a singer. Before I picked up a camera, music was my idea of the ultimate form of creativity. I loved the fact that I could sing and put a smile on 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. Photography is so personal and the rewards I get from that are indescribable! The day I discovered this was the same day 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!

Love is Art

Love is Art

They say that art is that which evokes an emotional response. If that’s the case, I can’t think of anything more artistic than love. Love is Art! Love evokes more emotion than anything else! My whole life evolves around shining a light on love and all it’s greatness. Yes, it’s my job, but if I wasn’t a wedding photographer I can assure you I’d find some other way of drawing people’s attention to it. I’ve always been emotionally governed – in love with love. I’m not suggesting love’s always been good to me – it hasn’t, but no matter how tough things have gotten for me in the past I’ve never discounted love as the most significant and important feeling we can experience. Without it, we have nothing!

So naturally I’m inspired by people who become swept up by that magical four letter word. While I’m pointing a camera at those who are lost in each other, nothing else matters to me. Capturing those kind of moments are what I live for. Love is literally what gets me out of bed every day! In a perfect world I’ll live out my days photographing people hopelessly in-love with each other. If that’s the plan for me then I’d have to say I’m well and truly ok with it 🙂

Here’s a little piece we created on the weekend. Greg and Chrissy met in the paint section of Bunnings! As soon as they told me their story at our meeting I threw this idea out there. Thankfully they loved the suggestion and now they have this image to forever help to celebrate where their relationship began! After being a wedding photographer for almost 9 years and hearing so many of my client’s stories, I’ve learned that love can appear anywhere! It doesn’t care where!

Love is Art and I’m confident Greg and Chrissy will continue to create it forever – together!

When Should I Be Ready?

When Should I Be Ready?

Brides often ask me, “When should I be ready before the ceremony?”
I thought it might be a good idea to answer here. Of course I can only answer this question for my own clients as other wedding photographers possibly do things differently.

For me, I like to leave the prep location at least 20 minutes before you leave to travel to the ceremony. This gives me enough time to make sure I’m set up at the ceremony location and ready for your arrival. It’s easiest if we count back from the ceremony time and work it out from there.

Let’s say the wedding ceremony starts at the classic Spring and Autumn time of 3pm. If it takes 15 minutes to travel there then I would leave the prep location to head to the church/venue/garden at 2:25pm. You would then leave for the wedding closer to 2:45pm.

I like to capture bridal portraits before the wedding and this usually takes around 60 minutes (max). So I would recommend being fully dressed by 1:25pm. If you then count back however long you think it would take to put your gown on, then that’s the time you’d need to tell your MUA and Hair Stylist to be finished by.

So if you think getting dressed would take 25 minutes, then ask your stylist/s to ensure your makeup and hair is done by 1pm.

Obviously these times would change depending on the distance between the prep and ceremony locations as well as how long you think getting dressed would take. If it helps any I would always suggest that it’s best to over estimate times. You’d be really surprised how fast time flies and how things that are normally quick and easy seem to take longer than expected. Getting ready on a wedding day is nothing like getting ready at any other time in your life.

Here is an image I captured with Michelle who was ready early enough that we could go and capture some pre-ceremony portraits. I’d like to thank Tasleema Nigh and Nicola Reardon for doing such an amazing job on the day and ensuring the girls looked absolutely amazing with heaps of time to spare!

Tamborine Mountain Wedding

Tamborine Mountain Wedding

I finally got to shoot a Tamborine Mountain Wedding at the very beautiful Tea and Niceties! I remember many years ago I saw a wedding at this venue (I think it was called The Pavilion back then). I thought how cool it would be to be able to photograph all those happy people. Fast forward a couple of years (and a few more on top of that) and here I was finally living the dream I’d had so long ago.

What a great little place! So many nooks to create images in. A photographer could easily fill an album with wedding photography only captured onsite! Everywhere you turn it’s awesome – especially for a wedding photographer. What makes the venue extra special is that it just happens to be on Tamborine Mountain!

I wanted to share this image of Kelly. Kelly looked beautiful and wore one of my favourite wedding dresses of the year so far. I absolutely loved everything about her styling. I’ve always been a fan of lace, but when you mix with a hooped A-line don’t be surprised if you hear me gush when I see it!

Everything about Paul and Kelly’s wedding inspired me.

The Beautiful Wedding of Mark and Amanda Jason

It’s very cool to be able to title this blog “The Beautiful Wedding of Mark and Amanda Jason”! We wanted so much for their wedding to be amazing, and it was. After all, Amanda is my little sister who married the man of her dreams; my now very devoted brother in law, Mark Jason.

When I first arrived at the boy’s prep I got out of my car to hear lots of laughter. I’m not sure if any had been flowing, but spirits were certainly high. When I entered the room I wondered for a brief second if I’d packed a set of earplugs because the boys were jovial to say the least. After a few attempts to lower the volume in the room we eventually sat Mark down to read a letter that Mandy had written to him. It was comforting to see him become emotionally moved by her words. Mark’s a tall guy and it’s impossible not to notice him, so to watch him transform from being this giant very upbeat and somewhat loud fella to an emotionally sensitive man was something to witness. It was also pretty cool to photograph.I got a kick out of watching Mark get ready for the wedding because he was as excited as a kid in front of a Christmas tree. Lots of grooms go to an unknown place in their mind and spend a lot of the morning very quietly processing the magnitude of the event. However for Mark I think he was too busy having an absolute ball, eagerly looking forward to seeing his future wife, and getting on with being a happily married man.

After I’d snagged a bunch of awesome photos I left them and headed over to see Mandy and the girls.

I’ve watched Amanda grow up from being a baby to a successful and well known young woman! Previously known as Amanda Duval, Amanda Jason has been the subject of my photography many times over. I’ve shot with Mandy more often than I’ve worked with anyone else since Mum bought me my first camera. In fact, Mandy was one of the first people I ever photographed.

Some of you may’ve seen Amanda presenting the weather and the news on Channel 10. This is probably one of the reasons so many visitors to my website drop by just to search for images of her. I’m sure Mandy’s fans will be very happy to find this post. I could go on and on about how proud I am of her media achievements, but this blog will be about the beautiful wedding of Mark and Amanda Jason. It will also be about how happy I am that I got to photograph it.

Before I found out Mark and Amanda were getting married I’d occasionally joke about not being their wedding photographer. After all, I’ve never actually been a guest at a wedding. Every time someone I’ve known has gotten married I’ve been asked to shoot it. Of course, when their engagement became official, as a gift to them I offered to be their photographer. Let’s face it – jokes aside, there was no way I was going to let anyone else capture their big day.

It had to be me!

As well as offering to photograph the event, I shared every piece of wedding related advise I could think of. I also did my best to ensure that some of the most outstanding and professional suppliers I’ve worked with over the years got involved. Thankfully everyone Mandy contacted was available and I feel so grateful that they all gave Amanda and Mark the best service they possibly could. Thanks to their many talents the wedding was stunning and went by without a single hitch.

Everything was perfect!

I have a sneaking suspicion that some of you may see these images of Amanda’s very happy face and assume she’s always lived a charmed existence, but I can assure you that’s just not the case. Mandy’s had to work hard to get to where she is, and not just professionally. For a girl who deserved nothing but rainbows and fairytales, Mandy’s had to face many challenging years and some very tough times throughout her life. I won’t get into the details and turn this into a mini biography, but I will say that not many people would be able to walk though the maze she has and find a way out the other side… in tact. To Amanda’s credit, in spite of all the curveballs thrown her way and her subsequent need to develop resilience and resolve, she has still remained warm, engaging, compassionate and sincere. It hasn’t been an easy road for Mandy and I think that’s why this wedding was such an extra joyous event for her. As well as the 29th of August 2015 being about the decision to stay together for life, this was also a celebration of moving on from the past.

I couldn’t help noticing that her joy was accompanied by a real sense of relief.

Mark and Amanda’s love on their wedding day was inspiring to say the least. They were like two teenagers on a first date. As I scroll through these images I can’t help but feel immense satisfaction that for the rest of Mark and Amanda’s lives they’ll be able to look though their wedding photos and see nothing but happiness! They were so in love and in the moment together that I’m fully confident they’ll treasure the memories of that day forever.

Amanda’s joy was the star of the wedding. It was intoxicating and every single person couldn’t help being affected by it – including me. Every time I’d turn around and point my camera at her, if Amanda wasn’t crying happy tears, she’d be smiling, laughing or dancing a hole in her shoes. From the moment her day began to the moment she left that venue Mandy was squeezing every bit of joy out of every single minute.

I wish for ALL my clients that on their wedding day they too can forget about the logistics and leave any nerves at yesterday’s doorstep. I want for my clients to give themselves this kind of permission to ensure they don’t miss the magic. I hope that every client I photograph from today onward can see these images and understand that joy and love trumps EVERYTHING! If a minute is lost here, or a flower forgotten there, as long as the couple can allow themselves to be this happy, nothing will stop them fondly remembering their wedding day for life!

I love you Mandy! So much of what you do inspires the hell out of me. When life gets tough and I doubt that there’s a way to overcome some particular challenge in my life, I just think of you and realise that people can do amazing things. Thank you for allowing me to retell your wedding story and thank you for letting me share these images with the public; it’s such an honour and a massive pleasure to be able to do so. I’m so happy that your day was so wonderful and that you’ve snagged the man of your dreams who I know will forever treat you like gold!

My personal thanks and credits to the suppliers:

You’re all so amazing at what you do!

Vintage Wagen Kombi Hire Thanks Mike for your excellent service and for getting Mandy and the girls to the wedding in great spirits! I love photographing Kombi’s and yours is such a beautifully restored 1964 gem!

It’s obvious you care about creating a great experience for your clients. Thanks again!

Missy Labelle Thanks to Michelle from Missy Labelle who did all the stunning decorative flowers around the venue. Your work added so much magic to the day.

Shane Keighley from Big Chef Little Chef Catering – Thanks for doing such an incredible job with the food! People are still raving about it.
