Thomas J. Doggett
Documentary Wedding Photographer

Chicago / Geneva, Illinois

I’m a photographer for the couples who want an unscripted wedding day. No shot lists, no hours spent traveling from location to location taking staged portraits and no forced moments. In short -  I’m for the couples who want to spend their wedding day celebrating with family and friends; not the photographer.

Kind Words

“We 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

"Thomas 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, Thomas 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

"We got married in June 2017 and used Thomas for our engagement and wedding photos. We are thrilled we did! He was very accommodating and responsive to what we wanted. For our engagement photos, we really wanted downtown Chicago photos and Thomas met us bright and early at 5:30am to get good lighting and to avoid any pedestrians in our shots. Prior to our wedding day, we had a couple of calls with Thomas to go over details. He suggested small tweaks to ensure things would go smoothly. He captured all of the shots we wanted and was very pleasant to work with! We would definitely recommend Thomas to other couples :)" - Sarah & Nate

Congratulations on your engagement.
Thank you for considering me to tell your wedding story.
