NICE TO MEET YOU! I'M TOM.

My passion for photography began with my love for music. I was convinced I would one day work in the music industry. A brief internship at Sony Music's RCA records during college however made me realize that as much as I loved being a musician, working for a record label was not for me.
At the same time I became interested in taking photographs, drawn by the parallels to my formal music training. The more I took pictures, the more I found myself falling in love with visual art, even more than I had with music! My passion for working with people and having fun made the eventual move to photographing weddings a perfect fit!
Here are some fun facts about me:
- Before photography, music was my passion. I play the guitar, piano and sing, and have been in a few bands.
- I'm an avid surfer and snowboarder, even surfing in the dead of winter here on the east coast (where the water reaches a balmy 36 degrees Fahrenheit)!
- I've recently fallen in love with oil painting—some of the great painters throughout history have greatly influenced my photography.
- I love to travel and see the world. There are few things in life that put things in perspective like seeing new places and meeting new people.
I'm looking forward to learning about you!
