Client testimonials

I feel extremely privileged every time I am asked to photograph a wedding or a special event or do a family portrait by a client, as it means they have put their faith and trust in me to capture special moments in their lives and capture them at their best. So when my clients take the time to tell me how much they like my work and write such beautiful testimonials, it really does mean a lot to me.

Here are some examples of what my very kind clients have written to me:



Mr & Mrs Miller

We cannot recommend Thomas Johann Photography enough he is a really lovely guy who is incredibly talented. We had lots of comments at our wedding about how great he was from our guests. Thanks Tom we love our pictures so far and can't wait to see the rest Joanne & Andrew xxx

Pamela Marie Gilligan

I'm yet to see the pictures from my wedding, but I felt the need to leave a review based on his professionalism. Although I had many distractions and time was working against us, Tom was very understanding and reassured me that there was no need to panic! Not only did he help me with my crazy 2 yr old, all the other children joined in taking pictures with disposable cameras. All in all the day went smoothly and I'm sure I'll be writing a second review for Thomas Johann Photography once I get a peak at my photos.

Mr & Mrs Smith

Absolutely fantastic photographer. Tom photographed my wedding on Saturday and I don't even need to see the photos to know he did a fab job. All the guests loved him, he made everyone feel at ease and kept us laughing. We had our pre wedding shoot with Tom and we were so pleased with the photos. He manages to capture beautiful natural moments as well as the posed photos without you even realising he's there. I honestly can't recommend Thomas Johann Photography enough. Lyndsey and Steve xxx

Mr & Mrs Culley

We haven't even seen all the photos yet but Tom is the best photographer ever!

Mr & Mrs Lowry

Really happy with our wedding photos, would highly recommend Thomas Johann Photography.

Mr & Mrs Dubery

What a fabulous experience we had with Thomas Johann Photography. We looked for a photographer for our wedding and was recommended Tom from several people and he'd previously done an engagement party for some one we know. We were unsure of what we wanted for the wedding but After talking to Tom he put together different ideas for us and we were able to choose which we wanted. On the day of the wedding it was pouring it down so we're unable to do the photos outside, Tom made lots of suggestion and put us at ease and took lots of beautiful wedding photos. We choose to have our photos on a disc and they were ready just after our honeymoon. All the photos were lovely. We had each one in colour and black and white, there was plenty of choice. Could not recommend or thank Tom enough. Everyone at the wedding commented how fab he was. If ever we needed a photographer again Thomas Johann Photography would most definitely be our first choice.

Mr & Mrs Harrison

We highly recommend Thomas Johann Photography, Tom is a lovely man and is so thoughtful and thorough with his work. The photographs are beautiful and everything we ever dreamed and more.He really catered for our needs and spent time capturing everything we wanted.thankyou so much Tom,love the Harrison's x

Mr & Mrs Holt:


It is essential that you book this guy immediately. He came to our wedding and was like an MC, wedding planner, photographer extraordinaire and good mate all rolled into one. Top bloke, fantastic photographer, get him booked.


Not only Thomas produced amazing pictures capturing precious moments at my wedding, he's a genuine and loving person to be around with. He is passionate with what he does and it shows. I feel lucky to have as our wedding photographer and would highly recommend Thomas Johann Photography to anyone.

Angela and Ian Smith

We had a small intimate wedding in York and Thomas Johann Photography captured the day perfectly. We wanted a few photos to remember our day and Tom totally exceeded our expectations. He understood what we wanted and put together a package within our budget. Excellent service and value for money. Thanks again Tom.

Mr & Mrs Bernard

We got married July 20th this year and we have to say tom you did an amazing job. We booked the full package which included a pre wedding shoot and recieved bundles of amazing photos. The shots captured were natural and high quality. Our family and friends have all asked for his details as they loved the way he worked. Friendly, passionate and hard working. Tom went above and beyond to deliver a 10/10 service. Thank you again tom

Mr & Mr Holop:


The pictures are truly a gift from god!! you are such a talented artist - lots of people from the wedding have already changed their profile pictures and those who were not able to attend have made amazing comments about the lovely person said it was the best wedding album they have ever seen...if you look on Liz's profile - our favourites are on there. Can’t thank you enough my friend! Bless you!


We can't believe how beautiful the photos are - you are so amazingly talented and we have had such wonderful comments from everyone! Thank you so much - you have totally blessed us!

Paul and I were delighted that Thomas Johann was able to be the photographer for our wedding. Recommended to us by a friend, we were completely blown away by the beautiful photographs he took. We knew that we wanted someone who would capture all the special moments of our day, rather than focus on the more classic "wedding photos" and Thomas understood exactly what we wanted, taking great care to research the day beforehand, visiting the church, and finding out from us who all the key people were going to be so that he could make sure he had all the photos we wanted. On the day, he worked incredibly hard, capturing everything, and yet totally unobtrusive at all times. When the photos arrived less than two weeks later, we were absolutely thrilled with them; every photo was stunning. Everyone who has seen the photos has commented on how perfectly Thomas captured the joy and intimacy of the day, from the beautifully romantic photos of us, through to the relaxed portraits of our children and all the guests. Our only problem is choosing which photos to frame and which to put in albums - they are all so wonderful! We can honestly say, as have many of our friends and family, that they are the most beautiful wedding photos we have seen, and we are hugely grateful to Thomas for giving us the most wonderful record of our special day. Thomas is an incredibly talented photographer and we would recommend Thomas Johann Photography to anyone to entrust him to capture their most precious moments.

William & Harriet Wycks

We really are still blown away by the pictures you have taken of our wedding. We are so grateful for such amazing photographs. We love them even more every time we look at them. 

We have no hesitation in highly recommending Thomas Johann Photography as an exceptional photographer to our friends and family. You captured the moments of our wedding day in such a natural way and as a result produced photographs we can cherish forever.

Matthew & Jeerwat Cook

Our wedding day was the most perfect day we could have ever imagined and thanks to Thomas Johann Photography we also have the most perfect pictures of some of the best moments of our lives.  Not only did we have some beautiful moments captured, but the presentation of the wedding album itself was beyond anything we could have imagined and was the perfect finish to our wedding memories.  Most of the process of planning a wedding is beyond stressful but from the moment we spoke to you we could tell we shared the same vision of what we wanted and you massively surpassed anything we expected, it was a pleasure to find someone who cared as passionately about what we wanted as we did ourselves.  From the bottom of our hearts we both cannot thank you enough for such a beautiful gift and will be highly recommending you to all of our friends and relatives.

Fedeica & Giovanni Scopece

Our wedding pictures are truly amazing; Thomas Johann Photography flew out to Italy for our special day. Even though he was faced with the language barrier and sweltering conditions he was a true professional capturing every moment perfectly, our guests loved him. We are so happy with our pictures and cannot thank him enough.

Fantastic! Can highly recommend, our wedding photos are amazing. Tom is a lovely guy too.

The photos are great can't thank you enough for all that you did for us on our special day.

Photo shoots

Sarah Cryer

We decided to have some family pictures taken when our second son was born and I could not of asked for a more relaxed and happy experience! Tom was brilliant with us and our two boys making us feel very welcome and making sure we all had a fun experience! Tom was also very quick at getting our pictures together for us and helping us with any questions we had! I would defiantly recommend and I will also be booking Thomas Johann Photography again to capture many of our family occasions.

Jodie Woodward

Amazing pictures. I will definitely be recommending Thomas Johann Photography to my friends & family!

Julie Whelan

Brilliant value for money we had the sulkiest baby ever but still got some gorgeous photos would definitely recommend Thomas Johann Photography.

Jonny Halliday

Excellent. Simply excellent and grey value for money. Thomas Johann Photography highly recommended.

Kate Wallis

Just been looking through our photos this morning and even though oscar was full of cold they still look amazing, you've done such a brilliant job Tom! Thanks Thomas Johann Photography.

Emma Ratcliff

After having a '1 hour indoor photo shoot' with Tom of our little boy and the 3 of us, we jumped at the chance of having some more done when some slots for the Christmas photo shoot came up. We had another great experience at the shoot, and after receiving the disc in the post today - we are, once again, extremely pleased with the results! Would highly recommend Thomas Johann Photography. Thank you Tom. x

Matthew Cook

This gentleman's work is sensational, he has a unique ability for capturing people in their most naturally beautiful & intimate moments. Having Thomas as a photographer means you get to capture those beautiful moments you usually only share as a family, but you can't get pictures of because someone always has to be left holding the camera! Being a family man himself means he understands what it takes to create those moments. He instantly makes you feel comfortable and couldn't be any more welcoming, this allows him to blend into the background and capture those moments you want to hold onto for a lifetime. A truly talented artist in his work. 
Thanks for all the memories Tom!!

David Bielby

Amazing photos thanks mate, we're thrilled with them. 

Rachel Bielby

We've just received our photos on the disk. They're fantastic, we would highly recommend Thomas Johann Photographyx

Mary Mulherin-Freebury

Thanks for a relaxed and fun photo shoot. It's hard working with babies so we had regular breaks to keep everyone smiling! Thomas was confident and engaging with some great ideas and we're really pleased with our professional pictures. Thanks again. Mary, Mike and Alex

Robert Bell

Tom came to our house today and did a shoot for our daughters first birthday. As the shoot was today we are yet to receive the photos, however if they are anywhere near as good as the polite and professional service he provided then I cannot wait to get them. Tom had our living room set up within minutes and wasted no time in getting to work. He is a true natural at what he does and was fantastic with our daughter, she was all smiles for the majority of the session. I have no hesitation in recommending Thomas Johann Photography for your family portraits. Thanks again Tom can't wait for the pics. Hope you enjoyed the cake.

Jamie Swales

Just received our Christmas photos, they are amazing. To say you had two very difficult children on the day, they are amazing. Highly recommend Thomas Johann Photography. Thanks from me and Charlotte!! Ella and family are in Disneyland at the moment, but I'm sure they will love them too!!

Faye Donald

Kind, patient, incredibly affordable and so much fun to work with - Tom captured our family at our very best in a wonderfully relaxed atmosphere. I would recommend him to anyone.

Thank you to the fantastic Thomas Johann Photography  and the super talented Thomas Johann himself for a wonderful on location family photo shoot at Temple Newsam Park today. Tom was amazing and everything felt so natural - we were just a family having a lovely day out in the park and we hardly knew he was there in the background. I can't wait to see our pretty Autumn shots. Anyone thinking of having some family pictures done - this is the way to do it and I really couldn't recommend Tom enough.

Gayle Donohue

Tom did a wonderful job at capturing my camera shy toddlers. Fantastically patient and talented to get such lovely shots in such a short space of time. We are thrilled with the photos. I would definitely recommend trying the outdoor shoot with Thomas Johann Photography, a really relaxing way to get great photos with children.

Clare Jacobson Barnett

We were bought the shoot as a present... For such a reasonable price Ill be honest my expectations weren't too high but I couldn't have been more wrong!!! Tom and Becky made us feel so welcome and tom was amazing with our 6month old Noah.. And so patient.. Even when we were getting close to nap time!! We had our photos back within a few days.. Hand delivered to the door might I add! And I was blown away with the quality of the photos aswell as how tom had captured Noah’s character so well... And even as someone who hates having my photo taken i was so pleased with our lovely family shots. I can't recommend Thomas Johann Photography enough.. Great service from start to finish... We will definitely be booking again! Xxx

Jamie and Charlotte

We had our first family photo shoot with Tom and would highly recommend his work. The pictures speak for themselves but the fact that Tom and Becky made us feel so welcome and comfortable in their home was fantastic. Tom was great with Mia too which helped to get such great pictures. Make sure you book you shoot with Thomas Johann Photography, you won't regret it!

Kelly Tomlinson

Wow!!! We are thrilled with our photos that capture such special moments in time. Tom was truly fantastic. I would recommend Thomas Johann Photography highly; nothing was too much trouble, polite, professional, friendly, great with the kids... An all round star. The studio and all the props came to us - which made it easier having the kids to get ready! From the very first contact on Facebook to the disks arriving through the door it has been great. We are planning the next shoot already! Thank you so much for capturing our family in such a beautiful way.x

Carly Sidebottom

We found Tom through Facebook, one of our friends had used him for a family photo shoot. The price is extremely reasonable and the quality of the pictures is great! Tom was able to put our 9 year old son at ease (who was a bit uncomfortable in front of the camera) and he was great with our 9 month old girl. The pictures have been edited really well and we got more than one copy of the photos on disc for no extra cost which we could give as gifts! We have some great pictures of the children which are a lovely keep sake. We will definitely be using Tom again for another family shoot as our little girl gets a bit bigger! Thank you Tom x

Samantha Suttle

Our daughter has just turned one and we had her christening and birthday party on the same weekend. As a final touch to a wonderful year, I decided to have our first family photo shoot. And thanks to Tom, we got the perfect photos! It was nice for a photographer to come to us at our home, which helped Amy feel relaxed. And it was a lot of fun! I love how natural the photos look, he has not only captured our love as a family but also managed to capture fantastic mother and daughter and father and daughter moments. Thank you so much Tom, we are so pleased! I will certainly recommend Thomas Johann Photography to family and friends.

Charlotte Jordan

Absolutely fantastic photos Tom, thank you so much! Will definitely be contacting Thomas Johann Photography for more shoots in the future! X

David and Nicola

The pics are fab!! Thank you so much for the christening photos and the family photo shoot. Your photos are taking pride of place all over the house.

Harriet Wycks

We loved the family pictures Tom took of us and our son. We are so impressed with the style and quality of the photographs. He really managed to capture some amazing moments and I think this is testament to how comfortable and relaxed he made us feel on the day. We have no hesitation in recommending Thomas Johann Photography.

Hayley Peters

The service provided for our family portrait was first class! Not only did I have a 3 year old to contend with but a 3 month old too and Thomas made the whole shoot easy and relaxed. All of the pictures were fantastic and made a special present to help my grandparents celebrate 50 years of marriage. Rates were very competitive. Highly recommend Thomas Johann Photography :)

Heather Caton

Tom was really patient and good with my daughter even though she was very moody during the photoshoot but he still got great pictures of us :-) very friendly and welcoming. I love my pictures thank you again :-)

Russell Reading (Charity event for KRUK, Leeds)

Tom did a photo shoot for a gig we played in the Wardrobe in Leeds. As well as being a really nice guy, he's an excellent photographer and his work was really good. (Anyone who can make us look like a proper rock band must have some magic). I can recommend Thomas Johann Photography thoroughly!

Gloria Grandison-Tarrant (Charity event for KRUK. Leeds)

Thomas Johann Photography I love your photos! Can't wait for you to shoot at our event! X

Charlotte Stead (Charlottes Bespoke Beauty and Bridal. Leeds)

Professional, friendly and creative, was a pleasure working with Thomas Johann Photography captured exactly what I wanted from my shoot.

Karen Deehan (IIAA, London)

Tom was very professional and closely followed the brief.  We were very happy with the pictures he took of the seminar and exhibition, there was a nice mix of standard shots and slightly more ‘arty’ images.  He also went to a lot of trouble collating the images afterwards.  We wouldn’t hesitate using Thomas Johann Photography again.

Matthew Turner (Self published Author, Halifax)

Such an amazing evening made all the better with photos from the wonderful Thomas Johann Photography. Thank you for capturing my book in such splendour! A pleasure to have you part of the festivities.
