      Leica Photographer Philip Thomas

      Hi! I'm Philip, an Englishman in San Antonio, Texas.

      I love my job! If you like what you see, reach out! 

      I have a cool English accent; I’m dashing and handsome – so my wife says. Seriously though, I love the craft of photography. I’m a former news photographer and a documentary street photographer. I capture weddings throughout Texas from a fly on the wall perspective. You’ll not notice me. My photos are candid and delightfully artistic with a splash of color and monochrome. I avoid those wedding picture clichés.

      I’m fortunate to have collected over 80 international wedding awards with Fearless, WPJA, Photographers Keeping It Real, ISPWP, and This is Reportage. I shoot a blend of digital and film on Leica M Rangefinders and medium format Mamiya RZ67 film cameras. The Leica’s are quiet, small and unobtrusive cameras, perfect for my way of working.

      Philip was our ideal photographer - he was unobtrusive, but everywhere, and took the most gorgeous photographs and so many other moments we're so happy we're going to be able to look back on for the rest of our lives. We're so so so glad we picked Philip! - Minta + Philip

      Philip is an amazing photographer! Not only did he deliver beautiful photos, he put myself and my husband at ease during our rehearsal and wedding. For my husband who doesn't like having his picture taken, Philip 'blended in' with the crowd which helped my husband be more relaxed and look great in photos. I would highly recommend Philip as your wedding photographer!!! - Megan

      Wow!! Philip was amazing! I’m so happy we went with him to capture our special day. He was very professional and always got back to us quickly if we had a question. The photo albums turned out amazing. He might not be the cheapest, but he is worth every penny. - Stephanie + Justin
