Our Approach

Tom Schmidt – Lead Photographer

Schmidt Photo Weddings is a true boutique studio with true professional photography. Tom Schmidt will be YOUR Photographer. Unlike some studios that send associate photographers, you will get the real deal, and expect the amazing results!

Edited Image Files

After your wedding, our editing crew goes to work immediately to sort and sift through the 1000’s of images captured on the wedding day. We pick the top 500 (or so) and adjust exposure, color and tone to ensure each image is ready for the big time. We deliver final images in 2-3 weeks, not 2-3 years!


Weddings are about LOVE

Weddings are a simply amazing experience, every time. We take the time to get to know you and what is special about your relationship to create some of the most meaningful images of your life. As clients turn to friends, we strive to capture the most intimate and story telling moments to remember your beautiful day.


We Create Fun

Tom loves to take pictures… And you will love to have him take your pictures. It’s just FUN! He has a great library of silly jokes that will keep everyone’s spirits high throughout the entire day. Tom has been “married” over 100 times giving him the ability to calmly execute in ANY situation!
