In addition to choosing a photographer who's work deeply resonates with you, it's important that your photographer's personality blends in with your own in order to capture candid moments. I am fortunate to encounter a full spectrum of personalities, from reserved and quiet to wild and outgoing. The greatest compliment I can receive is hearing that my clients loved their photos but also enjoyed working with me.  It's important for clients to not only have confidence in my photography, but also enjoy the experience. Below are some of the compliments I have received from wedding clients.


"We can’t say enough good things... absolutely wonderful! To start, Thomas did our engagement photos and most recently our wedding photos... My fiancé and I have spent the last few days giddy after getting our wedding photos from Thomas. They are the most beautiful wedding photos that we have ever seen! Thomas did a wonderful job being everywhere at the right time to capture all of those special moments. He is such an easy person to talk to and work with. As a bride, I was a bit overwhelmed at times about getting those “perfect pinterest photos"... Thomas told me to just relax and that he would capture all the right moments and to trust him on that. I did and my pictures are even better than any pinterest photo I’ve ever seen! I never felt posed and everything felt so natural and flowed so well. The way he does all of his work is just perfect. The whole process of receiving your photos after your big day is a breeze... Thank you so much Thomas!!! We couldn’t be happier!" - Jordan & Bradford

"Thank you for everything! It was such a pleasure working with you. Amazing photos and you were both incredibly professional and patient with us." - Charlene & Scott

"Picking Thomas was one of the best decisions of the wedding planning process. I would easily recommend Thomas Doggett to anyone getting married in Chicago land." - Beth & Mike

"Thank you so very much for capturing all the amazing moments of our wedding day. We could not have picked a better photographer than you. We are still in awe when we look at all the moments you captured!" - Ali & Tyler

"I absolutely love them! You are amazing! Thank you so much for everything!! I was going to text you last night just saying how much fun we had with you. But it was a little late so I will say it here how much we enjoy working with you. You are a very talented man and you couldn't make us happier with your work. We can't wait to share these with friends and family. I cried happy tears as I was looking through them. You have a intricate eye at capturing people's happiest moments. We are so lucky to have found you. We love your heart and spirit and it will be an honor to have you a part of our special day :) Thank you again for everything!" - Theresa & Tyler


People feel good in front of the camera only when you learn to help them feel comfortable being there! It is about infusing them with your passion and educating them about the how much they will enjoy the process.

"Tom did a wonderful job of photographing our wedding. He really captured all the special moments that we wanted to remember as well as all the fine details that were so carefully chosen for our day. From the loving glances my husband and I exchanged during our first dance right down to the matching place settings, Tom caught it all for us and he did so in such artistically composed pictures that you would expect to see them in a high end magazine spread." - Susan & Chris

"Thomas's passion for photography is a true gift. He captured every moment that we wanted and also added his own unique photography skills to create stunning pictures that we wouldn't have thought of. We are forever grateful that we chose Tom for our photographer. Thank you for the beautiful memories!" -  Susie & Joe

“Oh my goodness !!!! These are freaking amazing!! ;) Thanks a million for your creative eye and kind words. You are a delight! Don and I really enjoyed having you work with us and will definitely refer our friends and family. Thanks a million” - Jen & Don

"We absolutely LOVE our pictures! Thomas listened to what we wanted and captured everything throughout the day" - Ally & Adam

“We are extremely pleased to have had Thomas take our engagement, wedding and trash the dress photos. He captured our wedding day so beautifully. Our pictures will be a lasting reminder of how special the day was. Thomas captured all the important moments in a way that was timeless and yet unexpected – so many wedding photos end up looking exactly the same and posed. He really got “us” (including our families and friends) at our best that day. Most importantly, we feel like anyone looking through our album can have a sense of what the wedding was like, as a whole, after looking at the photographs. He is truly talented and wonderful at what he does and it has been a pleasure working with him" – Britnie & Nick

“Darren and I loved our engagement and wedding photos. Thank you so much for working with us. We already referred you to a good friend of ours” – Darren & Melissa
