Thank you very much for visiting my website. I love what I do, feel honoured every day to be able to have such a great job and thoroughly enjoy the fact that so many people support me and have followed my journey for so long! I feel truly blessed!
When I was 17 my mum bought me a camera and my interest in photography began. I was intrigued by the fact that a black box and some glass at the front could capture a moment and end up on a piece of paper. It fascinated me!
At the same time I was also building a real passion for music and eventually it took my more and more of my attention away from photography.
For years I focussed on being a singer (no pun intended), but eventually the old dream of being a successful photographer resurfaced.
I built a studio, registered Tom Hall Photography, and photographed many portrait and beauty sessions. As soon as I felt ready I eventually took on the responsibility of photographing weddings. From there I haven’t looked back!
Over the last 7 years of photographing weddings I’ve seen so many wonderful moments, learnt a lot about the art, and grown to understand more about myself as well. I’ve snagged some really wonderful accolades and gained associate honours in photography. I feel like I’m exactly where I should be and hope this privilege lasts until I can pick up a camera no more.
I understand you have many, many photographers out there to choose from and I can fully relate to the fact that it’s not an easy task. At the end of the day it comes down to asking yourself one question: “Can I imagine myself in Tom Hall’s photos?”. If the answer is “Yes!” I hope you’ll take the time to contact me and hopefully I’ll be available to photograph your very special day.
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.
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!
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 only 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.
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.
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.
