13. Wedding Day Signs & Menus

If you don’t have a planner helping you with these designs, USE ETSY!! Etsy is seriously the best when it comes to little wedding details. Heather and I found templates that matched our wedding theme and then printed in house or at Staples.

Using our cameras, we get to record your love story for you and your family to share with future generations. How cool is that?

As a wedding photographer based in both New York City & San Diego, Tom has captured over 100 weddings! Together, we love to celebrate with you and your friends on one of the most exciting days of your lives. It brings us such joy to capture your wedding in an artistic way, not only telling your wedding story, but also making sure to bring warmth and friendliness (and a few laughs!) to the day.

NICE TO MEET YOU!
WE'RE TOM & HEATHER
