About Tom Hall Photography
Thank you very much for visiting my website. I love what I do! I feel so lucky to be able to have such a great job! I really enjoy the fact that I can create something that people can love for life. How seriously cool is that?!!!!!
My first introduction to photography was when I was 17. Mum bought me a camera and my interest took off. I became so intrigued by the fact that a camera could capture a moment, and that that split second in time could be remembered forever. It blew my mind! At the time though I had no idea just how much my fascination would grow. I got into portraiture and that led to beauty photography which in turn led me to running a photography studio.
The first time I ever took a camera to a wedding I discovered that nothing else would ever be as rewarding to me. I suddenly realised that a wedding was a blend of documentary, fashion, family, product, food, beauty, landscape photography, and portraiture all rolled into one. I was in heaven. I think if you met any couple who I’ve photographed they’d tell you, “That guy loves his job!”. Sure, I love the arts, and sure I love the magic of photography, but what I love most is that this thing I’m doing will last, and that these two people will treasure it for life. That’s special!
I’ve seen so many wonderful moments, learnt a lot about love, and grown to understand more about myself as well. I’ve also snagged some accolades and gained my Master of Photography. I feel like I’m exactly where I should be and hope this privilege lasts until I can’t pick up a camera anymore.
I know there are lots of photographers out there. I don’t really know much about them, but I know what I’m about. I love weddings! I LOVE love! Why should you choose me? I’d like to think there are lots of reasons, but at the end of the day I think the most important is if you can imagine yourself in my photography and if you’d like to hang out with someone who thinks weddings are awesome. 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.
I absolutely love what I do and this is why it’s always a privilege for me to be invited to capture such a pivotal day in anyone’s life.

FAQ: Q. Do you do videography? A. No, I'm not a videographer. I specialise in photography. Videography is a completely different craft requiring a completely different mindset. I would always recommend booking a photographer and videographer separately to ensure each element has the full attention of it's artist apposed to someone doing a bit of both. Q. How far in advance should I book? A. As soon as you can. I operate on a first-in first-served basis. Once someone books me that date is no longer available to anyone else. To ensure no one else beats you to the date, it's recommended you book as soon as you can. Q. Do I need to book my venue first? A. Yes. This is very important. The venue must be booked first before the processing of a booking with me can commence. Q. Will we chat before the wedding? A. Absolutely! We must make time to speak prior to the wedding day. It's so important to get to know each other so that on the wedding day you are so much more comfortable with being photographed. Q. Do you supply the RAWS?
A. Just like a chef doesn't put the raw ingredients on the table for the diners to cook themselves, I don't supply the RAWS. Post Processing is as much a part of the art as capturing the images. It's an intrinsic part of my style which is what I'm booked for.
Q. What if you haven't photographed my venue before? A. Awesome! I love new spaces and I love new angles. I love exploring and discovering new things. This is another thing that excites me about photography. I've won many awards from images captured in locations I've never been to before. Q. Are you insured for public liability? A. Yes $10,000,000 Q. Are you accredited? A. Yes. I am a fully accredited photographer with Master Honours.
