"Tom Daly was a wonderful addition to our whole wedding process. He spoke with us several times before the big day, and was exceptionally warm, professional, and accommodating. He moved around during the wedding like a super sleuth, unobtrusively and effortlessly catching all the moments of the day, and so many that I didn't even see as I was trying to take it all in! This was a true gift we discovered, as we were reviewing all the photos later. Super gold star to Tom for being SO FAST at editing all the photos and sending us our gallery. I've had so many other brides express amazement at how fast we received our final photos. Tom has such an easygoing, joyful energy about him, and he made even the staged photos on a hot, humid day fun, easy, and fast. He brings his photojournalism skills into all his pictures, but is also a master of the posed shots. His photos captured such amazing color, both inside our reception hall and outside for our winery wedding. His services also include a second shooter, so you don't miss any of the action during the wedding ceremony. He went above and beyond on our wedding day and we highly recommend him!"
"We really wanted a photographer that was personable, uber-talented (obviously) and had a more photojournalistic approach. As much as we love pictures, believe it or not, we actually don't feel quite comfortable posing for them! Tom put us at ease and was able to really capture those authentic, "candid" moments that we will treasure forever. Nothing felt "forced" or cheesy and we were really able to enjoy all of the moments of our wedding as opposed to just posing for them. "
"Tom is fantastic to work with. Easygoing and flexible. He met with us ahead of time to discuss our event and what we were looking for in pictures. He connected well with all of our diverse family, friends and even puppy. Our pictures and video turned out great!"
"Tom's photos are absolutely AMAZING! I am so glad we chose him for our wedding day. When we were looking for a photographer, we were looking for someone who didn't take a lot of staged photos. Tom was the perfect fit. His photos capture those moments that you might not notice and appreciate looking back on. Tom is also very personable and took the time to get to know us and make sure we were comfortable on our big day."
"Tom was a real highlight at our wedding. His easygoing manner and natural style made me comfortable right away. He answered all of my questions patiently and was completely professional and reliable the whole day. Even when we had some logistical issues with cell phone service not working at the venue, he and his 2nd shooter managed to make it all work without worrying anyone else. "
"Tom Daly's work never fails to amaze me! He's been a good friend and a local inspiration for as long as I've lived in Charlottesville (10+ years). I never second guessed my choice to hire him for our wedding, and I haven't regretted it for a second. He's amazingly professional and has a wonderful eye, and he works so well at directing & guiding you to fulfill the vision he's trying to create. His photobooth is always fun for guests too :) Looking at those professional-grade pictures of our wacky friends was almost as fun as looking at the wedding shots!! "
