My style is mainly documentary and natural but I will not let you hanging if you are feeling unsure and indeed would welcome some guidance. I capture in a journalistic way the wedding day’s natural flow with all the little details and moments as they unfold. At the same time, every photo is treated individually with a creative vision of a fine art approach.
Having been a wedding professional for 5 years, I’ve shot events in all locations, in all weather, with all types of lighting and under all kinds of scheduling, so feel assured that you’re in safe and competent hands.
“Thank you so much for sending us the photos. They look amazing and we are so happy with how they came out!!! Thank you for capturing the candid moments, laughs, little details and embraces. We just went through the photos, reminiscing the day, which is exactly what we wanted. Couldn‘t be happier”
Kevin & Shrabani
“Just wanted to say thank you so much for the amazing photos from our wedding! They are fantastic. All our guests said you were great at making everyone feel at ease, which I think shows in the pictures! It was a great day and you really captured it.” Thank you Kath & Jon
“We had couple shoot with Thom- Walker in Oslo Norway. He captured some amazing pictures. He was very easy to work with. He's very professional and passionate photographer.” Naila & Ali
“Thom saved our day by stepping in when we were let down by a photographer last minute and thank goodness we were let down because Thom was absolutely amazing. We received our photos today, just three weeks after the wedding and we are thrilled with all the pictures Thom created for us. 100% recommend Thom Walker.” Tracy & David
WHAT IF IT RAINS?
Most venues will have a contingency plan if the weather is poor. There will always be a spare room, stairwell or foyer for group photos and those of the bride and groom. If it isn’t too bad we can always take a walk under an umbrella and find some sheltered spots for your photos, but whatever the weather, indoors or out, I’ll make sure you get great images.
People tend to hire me for my relaxed documentary style of photography, but I do like to include some formals in the final set of photos. I also understand that some people from an older generation (not mentioning any names Mums and Dads) like to have some of the more traditional shots and it’s nice to keep them happy. I understand how important family group shots are but try to keep it to a minimum so you can enjoy your day fully.20 minutes is usually more than enough.
What happens if you are unwell on the day?
My wedding kit contains Lemsip, tissues and plasters in case of emergencies! But should I, for example, break my leg and be unable to physically cover your wedding I have access to a network of wedding photographers that provide coverage
Do you work with a second photographer?
I don't typically work with a second photographer because working solo allows me to be more discreet and shoot the documentary images that really bring the feeling of your wedding alive. However, if you are planning a large wedding or feel your ceremony coverage would benefit from two photographers please contact me to discuss our options and I can advise you on whether it would enhance your coverage.
I love the excitement couples have surrounding their wedding day, it never gets dull. If you think I could be the photographer for you, then drop me a message with as many details as you want to share and I’ll get back to you.
DO YOU TRAVEL?
Of course! I love to travel and my passport is at the ready and even though I love photographing weddings in Nottingham you can’t beat a little adventure abroad.
DO YOU TAKE PHOTOS DURING THE WEDDING BREAKFAST?
I don’t take pictures of people eating, no-one looks good doing it, and we want you and your guests to enjoy your food and not feel self-conscious.
WHAT CAMERAS AND KIT DO YOU USE? DO YOU HAVE BACKUPS?
I use 2 professional Nikon digital cameras with a variety of lenses and flashes. I also have a extra back-up cameras just in-case.
WHAT IS THE BOOKING PROCEDURE?
Once you’ve got in touch and we’ve confirmed I am available for your wedding date, a non-refundable £50 deposit is required to secure your day along with a short booking form/contract.
