          After hopelessly scrolling through so many portfolios of the same, staged wedding photos, it was such a breath of fresh air to find Philip’s collection. His ability to capture authentic moments and real emotions immediately brought me to tears. Seeing my reaction, my mom reached out to Philip about shooting our wedding and he was instantly responsive and accommodating of our requests. Philip photographed our engagement photos, rehearsal dinner gathering, and finally our wedding. Each time we were amazed at Philip’s ability to simultaneously be so personable and warm while remaining unobtrusive and almost elusive. He has been such a joy to get to know and made everyone feel so comfortable being themselves. More than anything, the photos and moments that Philip was able to document are beyond words. He was the most important and worthwhile investment of our entire wedding. Our families are completely blown away by his ability to capture the magic and convey the emotions that we all felt so perfectly. We are so grateful to Philip for the timeless, authentic, emotional, beautiful photographs that will keep forever the memories of our day. We recommend him wholeheartedly and without reservation.

          One of the best experiences ever and an amazing part of our wedding celebration we won't forget! Philip is absolutely wonderful. When planning our celebration our greatest concern was finding a photographer we loved, and Philip hit off the chart on everything. We met with 10 photographers and emailed back and forth with about 30 more, and Philip was heads above the rest in absolutely every category. He creates art and we will always look at our wedding photos with joy. Very grateful to have Philip share our day with us.

          Shooting

          Experience

          When my wife looked into all the photographers available in the San Antonio area she was so excited to tell me about discovering Philip Thomas and his work. I have a keen interest in photography and was very concerned about an investment into "professional" photos a family friend with a nice camera could have taken. Many people can take nice photos. I'm picky about what I consider "fine art" photography compared to typical "snap-shots". After looking at all his personal work on his website, I was excited to see what Philip would capture on our wedding day. His amazing ability to capture the "decisive moment" sets him apart. Other than saying how much we love the magical photographs we now have, and how grateful we are to him for capturing them, go look at his website and blog to see for yourself at how talented he is at what he does.
