Hi and thanks for visiting my website. I am a qualified professional Wedding Photographer. I photograph weddings all over Australia and beyond. I am an easy going wedding photographer. I am happy when I work and I am always patient and understanding.

While my aim is to allow the story to unfold naturally, I’m also more than happy to help clients achieve a more stylised look if that’s what they desire. Some people like candid, some like classic, others are into quirky and I’m into all of it.

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

    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.

One Tree Hill

This is a property that locals and fellow photographers have dubbed, “One Tree Hill”

This location has been very popular over the years, and why wouldn’t it be? It’s beautiful. I don’t blame couples for wanting to have some of their images captured at One Tree Hill, Maleny.

I’ll never forget the first time I saw it. I was in Maleny with my wife Sarah and we saw a wedding photographer’s advertisement on the wall of a health foods store in the main street. At the time I hadn’t really broken into the Maleny wedding scene so I had no idea where this amazing place in the photo was. I called the number of the photographer on the sign and asked her if she minded telling me where this beautiful spot was located.  Unfortunately she wouldn’t say! “Sorry, I can’t tell you as it’s private property!” At the time I thought she was a bit rude but I didn’t really dwell on it too much afterward.

Then one day, maybe a year later when my wife and I went back to Maleny to have dinner. I got a bit lost and by chance we passed One Tree Hill! I slammed on the brakes and pulled over. When I got out to have a closer look I noticed it was over-grown and unkept and it seemed the owner had ensured it was no longer useable for wedding photography.

I have since learnt that numerous people weren’t respecting the property or the fact that it was someone’s actual yard. They had either left rubbish behind or left the gate open letting the cows out. Some people weren’t leaving the required donation in the owner’s letterbox and someone had even driven in, gotten bogged and torn up the grounds trying to get out.

It was a little sad to see it was no longer available, but I completely understand why.

Fast forward a few years and I had finally begun photographing more weddings in Maleny. By this time One Tree Hill had been made available again to Maleny Wedding Photographers and everyone was happy. Then once again a few bad apples fell from the tree and this time the pin was pulled and the only people who could access One Tree Hill were locals who had express permission from the owner.

This is when I realised why that photographer I had called years before was so adamant that the location’s whereabouts was not disclosed.  It’s a paradise – a place that needs to be cherished and treated in the highest regard so that we wedding photographers and clients may be blessed enough to continue to use it for years to come.

The image below was captured of Mark and Lauren last weekend. We were blessed with dramatic clouds in the background and subtly diffused sunlight (behind paper thin cloud cover) from the side.

Sunset Wedding Photos

I won’t go on again about magic hour (golden hour) and why it’s the most amazing time of the day for wedding photos. Instead I’ll just post this image so you can see why I talk about sunset wedding photos so much! If you would like to read a blog that I wrote about this incredibly flattering time of day, please click this link.

“Will Our Digital Photos Be Watermarked?”

I get asked this from time to time and it’s a fair question. After all, the images on my site are watermarked. The short and simple answer is “No!” Your collection of digital images will NOT be watermarked. The reason I watermark the images I upload to my site and social networks is to prevent the unauthorised use of them. It’s not uncommon for me to discover that blogs, venues, suppliers etc. have used my imagery without ever requesting permission. As a result I decided a few years back to watermark everything I posted to deter this from happening.

Just to confirm again; clients receive UNwatermarked image files. Cheers!

I just returned home this morning from photographing an amazing Melbourne wedding yesterday. I haven’t had a chance to look through all of the images as yet, but while I was uploading the files from my cards to the computer I came across this one and I just had to process and share it. You might find it interesting that before I turned up to photograph Sarah’s incredible wedding we had never met. In fact, we had never spoken to each other – not on the phone nor via email. I had arranged the details with their wedding planner and had no idea I would be photographing such a beautiful bride. Guess I lucked out!
