San Antonio wedding photographers. I capture emotional moments unobtrusively. Also serving Houston, Dallas, Austin, Texas Gulf Coast and the U.K/Europe.
Are you looking for something that’s different? Someone who isn’t following all the wedding trends? My style goes against the grain of clichéd wedding photography. A photographer who is artistic, unique and has a hands-off approach. Succinctly, I’m a documentary or reportage style wedding photographer. True authentic in-between moments and unobtrusive low-light photography sum up my vision. Defined by my love for geometry and composition in the frame without the subject being aware of the camera, I never shoot to a formula and do not direct except for some group and couple shots.
From Britain, I moved to Texas in 2006, and I’m available for weddings in San Antonio, Austin, Houston, the Gulf Coast and destinations everywhere.
I bring you images that celebrate your beauty and the all the magical moments of your wedding day. Working artfully and unobtrusively, I shoot from the heart to capture stand alone photographs that are beautifully timeless and always at the height of style.

“I just don’t even know where to start except to say hire Philip Thomas if you want perfect wedding photos. Most wedding photogs these days claim they are “documentary style” photographers, which is misleading. They pose moments. You know…they tell you, “Ok, walk toward me hand in hand but look at each other and smile.” And out pops a photo that looks like it was a caught moment. But in your heart, you know. Philip Thomas captures the real, actual, raw moments. The moment where your husband is holding your train so it doesn’t drag in the dirt. The moment your best friend leans over and whispers, “you’re perfect together.” And then he shows them to you in photos and you feel like you never missed a thing. He’s fabulous to work with, punctual, friendly, always available by email if not phone. And if my review isn’t swaying you, really look at the photos on his website. I think they say more than 1,000 words…” ~ CLAIRE M.
SAN ANTONIO WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHERS
A San Antonio-based British wedding photographer, I specialize shooting documentary, unobtrusive, unscripted, story-telling images that capture peak moments of real life, rather than typical wedding clichés. Weddings can be and appear so formulaic and even contrived. My images however, dig down to the essence of this ritual, as if I were invisible or a fly on the wall. Primarily working in San Antonio and Houston, Austin, (also Dallas and the Gulf Coast) with the choice of two Leica M’s & M9 for my wedding work. I travel all over Texas and U.S. and internationally, passport in hand.
Check out my blog to see the venues I have photographed at, including The Verandah, St Anthony Hotel, JW Marriott, La Cantera Resort, The Marquardt Ranch, Kendall Plantation, Knibbe Ranch in Boerne, Pecan Grove at Saltlick and W Hotel in Austin.
I embrace the challenge of capturing your wedding day and those fleeting moments, be it a small intimate wedding or a grand luxurious setting. It’s fine art with less posing.
