The following is a letter from a client that was so special to me i needed to share it!
Wedding Day- November 10, 2018. Best day of my life, but I made that mistake that everyone warns you about, “don’t skip out on a reputable photographer”. I went with someone affordable and decent, but little did I know he was not going to capture my wedding the way I imagined. I dabble in photography, so I have expectations and I did not feel the emotion at all in his pictures. I was happy with the family and group pictures, but not at all of the ones captured of my husband and I.
After months trying to reschedule a shoot with photographers, it never ended up happening. I pretty much gave up on the idea of getting them done, until I ran into an old high school friend who was the photographer at my best friend’s wedding. Tommy from TomTom Photo! My husband and I at the end of the night explained jokingly about how our photographer was rude, he did not do a good job, and we hated our photos. Then he came back with, “I’ll re-do them for you”. We didn’t think he was serious until he contacted me after the wedding and really wanted to set something up. We knew his work from social media and my other friend’s have used him in the past, so we were ecstatic!
Retake- November 10, 2019- We scheduled a re-do the day of our one-year anniversary. I did my own hair and makeup and I got to wear my dress again. My husband had a tux in the closest with a duck feather bow tie I bought specifically for the occasion and we met up at our house.
It felt so special to get back into my wedding dress again and seeing my husband dressed up (doesn’t happen often). It was like reliving that special day we said, “I do”. I got to do a different hair style since I regretted putting it up on my wedding day and included our pets which we couldn’t swing on our wedding day. We changed up the sceneries and did not feel pressured like you do on your wedding day to greet people and having to be in ten places at once. It was just my husband and I, oh and Tommy there to capture special moments. Tommy had the best ideas for poses and amazing backgrounds across the street from our house in our neighbor’s farm field. The sun was setting, and geese were flying all around us. The weather was perfect and so was the whole experience.
Now I have so many pictures to hold onto forever that I love. I’m so happy that we were able to re-do them. I recommend doing a fun shoot before donating, selling, or just not being able to fit into your wedding dress again. You spend all the money on your dress, might as well get more out of it, especially if you’re not happy with the ones from your big day. We could never thank Tommy with TomTom Photos enough for doing this for us, if it weren’t for him, I would have regretted never retaking our wedding photos.

Stephanie and Brian were my first wedding of 2020! A great couple to start off a great year! Throughout the day tears of joy and excitement flowed from the bride, groom, and their families as the excitement started to build for the big moment. As soon as we met Brian he had us laughing, and Stephanie's smile instantly had the whole room smiling with her. From the moment that Brian first saw Stephanie in her beautiful dress, you could instantly tell these two souls were incredibly in love. (I'm not crying you're crying!) Mike, my second photographer and I were so honored to capture these photos of the Bride and Groom at the beautiful Brigalias Wedding Venue! Paula and the staff were a dream to work with and the new Barn ceremony space was something out of a dream! Enjoy a sneak peek into their wedding!
