Grace and David first met at a lake-house in Dallas, and recently tied the knot at Bridget’s Basket, in Hunt, Texas. The couple desired a photographer who could capture the beautiful landscape and their day naturally. I’m so thankful for their trust, and we were the perfect fit.

Bridget’s Basket is a lovely restaurant oasis of freshly prepared food, much of it grown on-site or locally. The menu changes seasonally, and there’s even a glorious vineyard on the Hill Country grounds.

With the COVID pandemic, downsized weddings are the way to go, at least the couples I’m shooting. And, there are positive aspects to these celebrations. The couples save money, and from my perspective, weddings are so much more intimate, warm, and welcoming. What more could you ask!

Here are the amazing vendors that made it all happen:

Venue: Bridget’s Basket

Planners: Ashley and Jennifer

Hair + Makeup: The Oxygen Room

Photography: Philip Thomas Photography

Florist: Tricia Hamil

Cake: Sophie’s Bakery

DJ: Callan Brown

Here’s a little taster of my favorite images. Photos shot with a blend of digital and film Leica M’s and a Mamiya RZ67.

Hey! I'm Philip Thomas

All-Inclusive Wedding Day Storytelling

If you like what you see, reach out! I have a cool English accent; I’m dashing, handsome and funny – 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.
