“Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain” – The Wizard in The Wizard of Oz

Thanks for visiting my online portfolio. I’m Tom ~ the calm & funny guy with a camera on each shoulder who’s at a wedding almost every weekend. I’ve photographed over 600 weddings never tire of the energy that surrounds people in love. Readers of WeddingWire.com made me a Bride’s Choice and brides of The Knot voted me a Best Of Weddings Pick,  plus I’m a Channel 7-Denver A List wedding vendor.

Me and My Camera

When I was a kid, there was a shelf of National Geographic magazines in our family’s hall closet. A whole row of famous yellow bindings whose contents transported my young eyes to other worlds. I loved the intimate view of someone’s life that a camera could show. Before I could read, I could connect with the people in the images because the emotions were so real. Later at the school library, I’d turn the pages of Life and Look magazine and fall in love with the work of photojournalists William AllardJoe McNallyHenri Cartier-Bresson, and Robert Capa. I was hooked on the photo essay, telling a story with a camera. With my pre-teen paper route money, I bought an all-manual 35mm SLR camera and spent every extra dime on film & processing. Whether through sound or image, I’m a creative producer. I love deadlines. I love the energy of a live event.

Everyone’s Got A Backstory

Before concentrating full time on wedding photography, I was in broadcasting, most notably at KFOG | San Francisco, WDVE | Pittsburgh, and locally at KBCO | Boulder where I was Producer and Engineer for the Volumes 1 and 2 of the noted “Best of Studio C” recordings. That was a fun ride. Now, it’s visual storytelling where my heart lies, and I’m so fortunate to get to exercise it on the best place on earth.

The Commitment

My ultimate priority is for you to have a complete & meaningful document of your day. All the great moments — the hugs, kisses, laughs, tears, glances and winks. I cruise around your Wedding with an open heart and a camera on each shoulder, ready for almost anything. The process blends with your day, rather than drives a stake in it. Posed photos happen quickly with laughs and are over before you know it.

In a couple of weeks your images are ready to instantly download and share with the world. The magic feeling you had on your wedding day will return.
