Thomas Sparks did an amazing job! Extremely satisfied with the shoot and the pictures. He was great with my two year old and captured amazing pictures. I would highly recommend him to everyone and we will be using him in the future.May 9, 2017VerifiedSparks Media Group's reply
Hi Megan... thanks for the wonderful review. It was fun working with you and P... when she's ready for her solos let me know :) Thomas
Boy are we lucky we chose Tom! He is now our favorite photographer. We booked him for our company individual head shots as well as team photos. He is very responsive, arrived on time with a smile, and suggested great spots/lighting for each shot. Most importantly, he made everyone look fantastic, taking several different photos of each person until he got that perfect look. Highly recommended!!Mar 30, 2018Verified
Tom did an amazing job for our family pictures! We have a big family and our kids have their families, so there were many variations of pictures we wanted and it went very smoothly. Our picture day also had the wind against us and the park we chose had shadows and Tom made sure that nothing would stand in our way. We even had one of our grand kids start to have a mini melt down and Tom stepped right in and eliminated the melt down so quickly by letting our grand son help take some pictures. The turn around to get our family photos was unbelievablely fast. I highly recommend anyone to work with Tom and we will use him again. Thank you.Dec 23, 2017Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I try to custom fit my quotes to what the customer is requesting. A family photo shoot 5 miles from me will be less than a family photo shoot 50 miles from me. A small wedding at a court house would be less than a big wedding at a winery for example. I do have general package prices on my website however to give you a feel for what I typically charge. As always, my prices are able to be customized to what the client needs. Please rest asured that my price quoted is by "best price" and was chosen based on the specifics you noted in your request.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I like to have consultations (via email, in person or phone) with the customer to ensure we have the same vision for what they'd like done. From there I prepare an invoice or contract and send it to the customer in order to collect a deposit, deposits secure the shoot date/time. A couple days prior to the shoot I will confirm via text or email so that the customer is aware that the shoot is coming up and to ensure nothing has changed on their side. During the photo shoot I let the customer see the images I am shooting to ensure that what we discussed is being captured. After the shoot is completed I send the customer a secure web gallery link typically within 3 days (weddings sometimes take longer as there are generally a lot more images shot) that has all their edited images. They may share this link with family and friends, download images (with print release) and/or order prints directly from the link.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I'd like to add that I have photographers insurance covering me for up to $2,000,000 in liability. I am able to get a Certificate of Insurer (COI) for locations that require it in order to shoot at.
