"One of the most stressful things in life has to be planning a wedding. Try doing it from overseas. Yes, this Yank was a masochist. I spoke with several photographers, including the ones who were recommended by the venue. And while Tom's pricing was competitive with one of the others, what was the deciding factor for me was the quality and uniqueness of his shots. They definitely weren't the run of the mill wedding photos that you see in everyone's coffee table album. I personally think it's his background photographing people in the music industry that gives him a different eye for shots. And it was those shots that I saw in his portfolio that stood out to me. Our Willy Wonka Winter Wonderland Wedding was definitely not your average Saturday wedding. He was able to capture all of the quirks and nuances of our day as well as the gorgeous shots that everyone expects. And... To the delight of all the guests, he was able to produce a quick video slide for them to see the ceremony photos during dinner. Now, thus far this review has only touched upon Tom's skill with a camera. If I could give him 10 stars as a person and as a resource for planning my wedding I would. From my wedding dresser and florist to my band, Thomas was crucial in helping guide me to creating the wedding I wanted. If you haven't already booked with Tom, DO IT. Do it now!"
"Thomas is an excellent photographer! We cant thank him enough for the beautiful and ever lasting memories he created for us on our wedding day. Very accommodating as agreed to take pictures with my uncooperative dogs and subtle throughout the whole day to create documentary style photos. I would STRONGLY recommend him to future brides. Hilarious character too which helped to create a calm and relaxed atmosphere!"
"Thomas has just shot my wedding 2 days ago and my words simply won't do the service he provided justice. But, Ill have a go!
Thomas responds to any questions you have leading upto the date, and also suggests things you may not have thought about. On the day he really does offer something Ive not seen any other "event photographer" provide. He captures moments you have forgotten about or did not even see happen. For example - from our wedding he has captured moments in time that we didn't even know were taking place such as our niece dancing with her favourite teddy. Amazing.
He had our "Sneak Peak" preview photos ready for us the next day! Perfect to show our guests quickly! I can not recommend Thomas highly enough, you will not be disappointed."
"Just received our sons wedding album and it's super. The album is very classy - I chose the grey and the photo's and crystal clear. Thomas arranged them in such a way that the album is more like book. Would recommend Thomas to anyone."
"Extremely professional, friendly and helpful photographer. Nothing was a problem especially when he was working with two people who don't like photos taken. Absolutely loved all the photos each one was perfect which made it so hard to pick the ones for our album. We love the casual natural photos. Blended so much into he background forgot Tom was even at the wedding. Even the formal photos were taken so quick so we could just get back to our guests and enjoy our day. Definitely recommend to anyone getting married."
Thomas is a first class Photographer!
My wife and I got married back in June after a stressful year of planning our big day. With so many things to think about, Tom orchestrated our day with professionalism, brilliance & sheer fun! He went almost un-noticed apart from when we needed him and his collaboration with our videographer was fantastic. Having spoken to various photographers, we originally selected Tom by his breath-taking portfolio & easy to talk to personality. We had huge expectations of as a result, yet the finished product truly delivered - and then some!!
I'd highly recommend Tom to anyone who wants an expert taking their photos - he's efficient & nothing short of immense!"
"These photographs are amazing and so are you! You have made us all look so much better looking lol these photos are perfect! Thank you so much. We will cherish these memories forever, thank you."

"When you sit and have a proper look at your wedding photos and by the end your face hurts from smiling...thanks Thomas, they're perfect. Captured the day amazingly."
Lucy & Andrew Frey
"A massive thanks goes out to Thomas Jackson who captured the whole day from prep to Indian blessing onto the civil ceremony and then well into the evenings celebrations. We worked you hard.
High praise indeed to you from one of our family: "Absolutely gorgeous photos, best ever I have seen around a wedding. Your photographer needs a gold star - tell him excellent job!!! Beautiful day, beautiful family".
Can't wait to create our Photobook of the whole day together with you. If anyone out there is looking for someone to capture one of the best days of their lives, than Tom's your man. So glad we booked you early. Thanks again. Xx"
"I spent ages looking online and at wedding fairs for a photographer which would best reflect the style of wedding we had in mind. Photography was the most important thing on my wedding checklist. We wanted high quality, natural shots which would capture the mood of the day but also make sense of our venue (the Glass Centre in Sunderland). Picking Thomas to be our photographer was the easiest decision we made, he catered to our budget and delivered some really amazing photos. We hardly noticed him on the day. Our guests also got some fab shots as Thomas took a few for them on their cameras (they were over the moon!). The only difficulty we have is picking the best photos for our album. Would highly recommend!"
"Fantastic Photographer. We used Thomas for our wedding, and hardly knew he was there! exceptional quality photos and great value for money. Thanks Thomas."

"Thomas provided an excellent professional service from start to finish. He was polite and easy to talk to during the preparation for our wedding. On the day he was discreet but we got all of the photographs that we wanted and guests also commented on how good he was. We are so pleased with our finished wedding album and got the relaxed shots that we wanted. Thank you so much for helping make our day go so smoothly and providing us with a wonderful album full of memories."
"We chose Thomas to do our wedding photography because his work looked like just what we wanted; clean somewhat unconventional, and above all good! Thomas delivered everything that we expected and more. Not only is he great with a camera, but he's also great with people and made us feel completely at ease - all in all a fantastic photographer who will not disappoint!"
"Thomas provided more than we expected, he was friendly, efficient and all our guest commented how courteous he was. He kept in touch with us before the wedding and did exactly what we asked of him. We have no hesitation in recommending him for any occasion and will certainly give his details to family, friends and colleagues."
“Thomas was fantastic to work with, he produced exceptional photos of our wedding. Booking him could’nt have been simpler and we were very confident ahead of the event that he knew the venue and was fully aware of our wishes. Thomas was able to engage with our guests, put everyone at ease and produced a range of memorable and exciting photos. He should be commended for his enthusiasm and artistic flair which leave us with some great pictures of our special day.”
“Thomas was a pleasure to work with, from the initial contact and quote, right through to our wedding day, and receiving our wedding album.During the build up to the wedding, Thomas was flexible and understanding when it came to meeting, and discussing our requirements. His informal, yet professional style was perfect for us.On the day itself, we could relax in confidence knowing that Thomas understood what we were after, and knew how to get it. He interacted well with our guests, was very organised and efficient with the staged shots, and captured some great reportage style wedding photographs. Many of our guests commented on his personable, professional, and approachable attitude, and he produced some truly memorable photographs of our special day.I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Thomas Jackson Photography; superb value for money, and a true professional service.”
“Our wedding was a fantastic day and a day we will treasure. We are truly very grateful for your hard work and we have our wedding photos to remind us of our wonderful day. I can never get my son, Joshua to have photo’s taken,and Tom you have managed to do just that, you deserve an award for that alone!! You are fantastic at what you do and im glad we picked you for our wedding photography. Many thanks!”

“I’m very pleased we chose Thomas to take the pics at our wedding. Not only was his price very competitive but he was a pleasure to have there on the day. Professional and friendly he made the guests feel totally at ease and from viewing the online gallery (we’re due to get the hard copies soon) got some excellent photos of our guests, both posed and unexpected. He was also very flexible in terms of organisation, meeting to arrange payments and contracts at times that suited me rather than him. I’m very happy we chose Thomas and I’ll definitely be recommending him to any other couples-to-be.”
“Thomas Jackson exceeded all our expectations, he made all our guests feel at ease and indeed they complimented him since the occasion for this. The photography was a breeze and the results speak for themselves. And to top it all we feel we got serious value for money. We could not recommend Mr Jackson for your wedding highly enough.”
“Thomas blended into the background and for half the time we didn’t know he was there. It was only when he released his final photographs that we could experience his true worth! Can’t recommend Tom highly enough, his enthusiasm speaks volumes!” Colin Wilson “Thomas was very efficient and courteous and went out of his way to make sure that all of our photographs were of a very high standard. We are exceptionally pleased with the end results, and the package we purchased from Thomas was great value for money. I would have no hesitation in recommending him to others, such was the quality of his service.”
“The photographs Thomas took at our wedding were fantastic and a great reminder of our special day. Thomas was professional and relaxed and helped the day run like clockwork. He captured the special moments that our guests had throughout the day with unintrusive shots which was exactly the style we requested. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him as he provided an excellent service.”
