Jen and Tom meet when they went to opposite schools and they joined for a high-school trip to Canberra. They lost touch afterwards, but always thought the other was special. Then, many years later, Jen popped up on Toms facebook page as ‘someone you may know’. He messaged and asked her out for coffee. Jen was about to go overseas for the first time and said maybe when she returned. And they did, never looking back.
The Proposal: At Sydney International Airport. Jen was returning from being overseas travelling with her best friend (maid of honor), and Tom had organized to fly to Sydney to surprise her, propose, and then fly back beside her to Brisbane where Jen’s parents met them at the arrival gate. Nice work Tom 🙂
Their wedding day was filled with family and friends and they decided on their beautiful wedding venue of Old Petrie Town. It’s a spot they visit often and it’s a great location photographs and their guests didn’t have to travel between ceremony and the reception. Jen and Tom didn’t stop smiling the whole day and are so in love and the photographs truly show this. Thanks Jen and Tom, I had an amazing day with lots of laughs!

Testimonial about using Christopher Thomas Photography: I cannot emphasize how great Chris and Michelle are. We had a ball from the first meeting, to the time we finished! He was relaxed, and made all of us laugh. We felt so comfortable with him, and any special photos we wanted, he made sure we got, like the photo of my grandmas brooch on my bouquet. Chris made us feel at home on every meeting leading up to the big day. His professionalism and passion was second to none!
