Starting today and just for the sheer love of the craft, a new weekly blog post, a favorite selection of six photos and what I like about them. My style is mostly as a wedding photojournalist and what I love is to capture a wedding day as authentically as possible. I want to also ‘demetricate’ myself from the slave of social media, hence why I hope to keep pushing myself forward as a creative spirit. I still have my accounts on Instagram, as I find it a great way to engage with followers. But that’s about it if I’m honest.

A boy peers through the bathroom door in a hotel room. The best pictures of children on a wedding day is when they’re not aware of the camera. This of course takes time.

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.

Philip Thomas has been published in: The New York Times, Shot Kit in Australia, interviews in PDN (Photo District News) and Pro Photography Magazine, to awards in WPJA, San Antonio Weddings Magazine, This is Reportage, Fearless, Best Wedding Photographers, The Knot, La Grande, Modern Luxury Houston, Style Me Pretty, Popular Photography Magazine, My Project Wedding,  7Centerpieces and more.
