Tom and his team provide all-star quality and the perfect personality for a wedding photographer! We hired Tom to take photos of our elopement on a hiking trail, and also for our friends & family wedding ceremony later the same month. Both photo albums are stunning. Tom's personality puts everyone at ease, and he truly works for the client. We trusted him so much after the elopement photos that we never even provided a shot list, and everything was better than I could have envisioned, from the creative detail shots to the posed family portraits to guest candids. I would hire Tom again in a heartbeat!May 5, 2018VerifiedTom K.'s reply
You two were the best and your families were great too. Can’t wait for your next life event that needs me to attend!
Tom is an outstanding photographer. The pictures are all amazing and we got them back so fast! We literally had about ten pictures within an hour of the wedding being over. We got the rest (2000) about five days after. He had this amazing set up at the wedding where there was an ipad showing the pictures that he was taking. Definitely recommend if you want amazing quality, competitive pricing, and fast delivery!Nov 27, 2017VerifiedTom K.'s reply
Samantha, thank you so much for such a great day! You two and your families were the best. Can't wait to see you both again at another event... Tom
Great experience with Tom and Cindy! We did an engagement/family shoot & Cindy was wonderful with our children while Tom photographed my fiancé and I. I would most definitely recommend them & would absolutely rehire them :)Nov 14, 2017VerifiedTom K.'s reply
Daryl and AJ, thank you for the review and we really hope we are your first and only choice for your wedding day!
Tom is very reliable and I've had no problems communicating with him throughout the whole wedding process thus far! We just had our engagement photos done this past week at the Los Angeles Arboretum and he was wonderful! Very professional, fun, and made my fiancé Sam and I feel very comfortable as if we were the only two in the whole park despite it being a busy day! I LOVE his speediness with editing and sending our final pictures, he was able to provide them to us the NEXT DAY! Our wedding isn't until September 22nd, but I know for a fact that he will capture all the little special moments and I can't wait!Jan 19, 2017VerifiedTom K.'s reply
Your favorite tree shot! Very nice. That's cool to see that they allow photos to be posted now. Can't wait to see you both on your wedding day!

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I just wanted to shed some light on my offerings. I have noticed by asking other potential clients what other photographers were offering vs. my offers. This is what I seem to be finding consistently... #1 when I provide you with a thumb drive, I am giving you the quality of the images as my camera captured them, not a smaller version of it that can only be used to view them or at best print a 4x6 from it at best. Many photographers give you a cd of images. One cd holds nothing compared to a DVD let a lone a thumb drive. You want your digital masters so you can print them anywhere... a cd is worth no better than a viewing of them and cannot be printed from. On average with an 8 hour wedding I have shot well over 1000 images. 2 photographers is usually around 1500 to 1800 and takes up about 30 gig of data. To put that into perspecitve a dvd holds about 4.7 gig of data and a cd 700mb. So 6 cd's equals one dvd. So 30 gig is about 5 DVD's or 30 cd's. Ask your photographer if he is giving you one cd with images...if they say yes, you are getting a proof disc and you are not being given your photo negatives and you will be stuck buying your photos from them. We do not do this! #2 wedding albums... far too many of them to simply say they are all the same. Some photographers make up albums that are nothing more than copies of prints put into a binder and call that a wedding album. More commonly it would be a proof book. The wedding albums I create are 12x12 pages that open up to a 12x24 inch single image across. These pages are graphically designed to look amazing, often floating above another image. The pages are rigid like a children's book. Meant to not bend or warp. You may also see magazine style albums being offered. They are worth about $200 and we can do them too, but we don't make it sound like they are the real deal compared to a flush mount leather bound hand made album. Go to my website and click the link for wedding albums or find it in our blog to see several examples. #3 multiple photographers. More and more I am seeing packages for $1000 or so including 2 photographers. when pressed and asked you will find in many cases that the second photographer is at best an apprentice or a spouse with a camera, not trained or seasoned and often asking questions of the of the main photographer. Your wedding is no time to train someone. When we shoot with 2 photographers, the other person is also a professional who books themselves as a primary photographer same as myself. So in all I ask is that before you say yes to someone else and no to me, show me what they are giving you and I will compare head to head. I put my pricing up front for a reason. I show you what you really are getting and will be happy to explain it to you or show you in person.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?In today's world, I would say that 80% of my new clients I never meet until I am shooting them on either their engagement session or their wedding day. We do a lot of chatting via text and maybe a phone call. But I am flexible and I am happy to meet you. Just let me know. Tom
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have been shooting now for likely longer than you have been alive. My first wedding was shot at the age of 19 in 1986. Since then I worked in retail management for companies like Circuit City, Target, Lens Crafters. In between all that, I was shooting events and had clients who's names you would easily know and for organizations you for sure know, like The Los Angeles Dodgers. As of 2018, I have shot well over 700 weddings and average around 50-60 every year. I'd love you to be one of them.
