SAM + JOSUE – WEDDING

A few favorite frames from Samantha and Josue’s wedding a couple of Saturdays ago. Their wedding was at Our Lady of Guadeloupe in Helotes and reception at the Kendall Plantation in Boerne.

As you can see below, my approach is unobtrusive and to photograph the life of a wedding. I don’t capture many staged images as my couples who book me don’t want that. Instead, they want a more refined and hands-off approach. And they can just relax and enjoy their day without intrusions from a over zealous photographer. Most of what I love to do is anticipate ‘peak’ moments, and there herein lies why I love to photograph weddings. Many years ago, when I first started shooting professional, I worked for a local newspaper. I was trained to find the story and capture without setting shots up. Twenty years later, I take the same approach for weddings, avoiding cliches, finding the angles and capture the couples wedding day story.

Thanks to second shooter, Justin Brownell, along for the ride. Planner couple, Justin Berlanga, SkyeLane Consulting.  See below, all shot with a Nikon D4/D800 and Leica M(240).  Leave your comments below.

Diana Boucher - LOVE them, Philip! Can’t wait for the wedding. They are such a cute couple!

Behind the scenes – Philip Thomas Photography

Behind the scenes. Wanna see something amusing at my expense and the British sense of self-deprecation? Then see this short of me shooting a wedding group (yes I do shoot formals!). Filmed by amazing Dayna, owner of Stella Haus Films and now a good friend.

We’re working on a promo documentary for me but this little piece was just a bit of fun and silliness. For more of Dayna’s work go to her website http://www.stellahausproductions.com Enjoy and thanks for the share, Dayna!
