One of my big goals before leaving SC was to have some great family pictures taken downtown Charleston. Thankfully, I've had the benefit of becoming friends with a photographer who's work I had fallen in love months before we met. It was a crazy coincidence that we ever even met, actually. Furthermore, I got to shoot a wedding with her and finally, she took our family pictures downtown, which was so valuable to me. It is amazing how it all played out.
The thing I love about Tomme Hilton and her style is that it is completely out of the box. She has always challenged and inspired me as a photographer to think differently, to see things differently and most importantly stay true to what speaks to me. Her photography is so romantic (especially her wedding stuff) and uniquely beautiful that I began looking at her work regularly, which always inspires me in one way or another.
I've had many clients ask me what they're going to do for pictures now that I'm leaving the area. I think it's clear I would highly recommend Tomme, since I used her for my family portraits. She did a fabulous job with us. She took her time and was very patient with our 2 year old who would rather run in the park than sit for a picture. Also, we had very difficult lighting to work with but Tomme somehow made it work.
Once I'm back out West and you're ready for some new amazing photographs, look up Tomme and let her give you the gift of great photography.
Until next time,
Here are some of my favorites of the photos I've seen so far that Tomme did for us:
