Tom Halliday Photography
I have been a professional Photographer for 12 years. Constantly shooting different work all over the world, ranging from commercial, portrait, action sport, events and of course, weddings. Through doing all these different styles, in the studio and location, it has allowed me to try different things and push my style of wedding photography. I believe I can offer a fun and unique service which will make you feel so comfortable on the big day that it feels like you have a friend making your images.
My style of wedding Photography is known as Commercial Wedding Photography. This is because I use my geek knowledge of studio lighting techniques on location during the wedding. However this doesn’t slow me down, over the years I have perfected different methods for every kind of situation.
Throughout the day I also shoot reportage to make sure those beautiful once in a life time moments are captured. The atmosphere from day to night are so different at weddings. Night time shots are an opportunity to capture really unique and powerful images.
Each wedding coverage can be tailored to match your needs, photo booths and albums can be added and removed.

What other people say about a company is WAY more powerful than anything you can ever say about yourself, so here is a recent review from one of our weddings we attended:
OMG - not referring to the company here, literally...OMG - they are AMAZING!
We hired the Magic Mirror for our wedding and it was SO much fun - a lovely, quirky alternative to a Photo Booth, our guests (and we) loved it!
The props were great and in excellent condition, the set up looked wonderful and the staff, both in the lead up and on the night, were so lovely - Ryan set up super quickly and discreetly and was an absolute delight to have there! We were kept well informed leading up to our wedding and someone was always there to answer any questions whether we e-mailed or called.
The Guest Book was also REALLY nice and OMG provided pens, glue, etc... so we have a beautiful keepsake that we didn't even realise we would appreciate so much until afterwards.
Whilst you cannot put a price on the peace of mind and fun these guys provided, I would just like to mention that the prices are, in my view, very reasonable for what you get.
Seriously cannot recommend OMG enough - I fully intend to use them for every event I ever have any part in organising going forward. Thank you so much!
