a little about me

I'm Sean, a luxury wedding photographer based near Sun Valley, frequently traveling to document elegant celebrations all over the United States and the World.

I'm married to my best friend, Molly, who runs the editing side of our business, and was the one who inspired me to pursue my passion of photography.

We both love the beauty of Pacific Northwest and Rocky Mountain areas. Most weekdays, in between weddings, you can find us eating at the newest restaurants, or hiking around the wild lands of Idaho.

We are lucky to photograph so many fun-loving couples in so many beautiful places. Whether you are planning an estate wedding in Sun Valley Idaho, or you want to bring your family and guests to Lake Como Italy for your celebration, we look forward to documenting your unique wedding story.

Luxury Weddings, Elegant Moments, Artfully Crafted.

Even the most confident individuals can feel overwhelmed when stepping in front of a professional photographer's lens. I understand this and blend conversation, simple direction, and casual humor to get you feeling relaxed and enjoying the moments.

I believe that every individual has a unique narrative and that my job is to let your story unfold as natural as possible, while standing at the ready and never missing a moment.

By beautifully blending what is organically playing out with a few more structured moments, I create opportunities for heart-led interactions to flow, full of nuance and intimacy.

What makes us unique

We were so pleased to have come across Sean and Molly. If you haven't sifted through their work, please take a few minutes, as it will be time well spent and you can finally end your search for your photographer. 

Sean was laid back, but direct with clear vision. They let our personality shine through while providing direction on how best to capture every little moment. 

We walked away from the experience feeling like we had spent time with friends and were floored by the results. It's the warm rapport that has you feeling relaxed even when the day can sometimes be a little stressful.

I have had the pleasure of working with Sean a few times now, and I have been amazed each time by his talent! He is an incredible photographer...incredible!

His attention to detail ensures every part of the photo will be perfect, and he knows how to make anyone look amazing (which is huge cause I can look like a serious dork sometimes.) As amazing as Sean is, his wife and talented partner is not to be overlooked. She is probably the best editor I have ever seen.

 I highly recommend you to Sean Thomas Photography. You will not regret it!

For our sunrise session, Sean recommended that we wake up early to be the first ones at Glacier Point, since the park was a bit busier that time of year. We knew he definitely did his research and it paid off because we had the best spot at Glacier Point all to ourselves for sunrise!

Even though our adventure session was only supposed to consist of 6 hours total shooting time, we never felt rushed. On our way out of the park, Sean even offered to pull over to the side of the road and take a couple of extra photos of us with Cathedral Peak in the background because he saw the lighting was perfect.

I have nothing but good things to say about Sean and Molly. The second I saw their amazing images, I knew I had to book with them! They make the best team in capturing such beautiful and artistic pictures. They're kind, timely and have excellent attention to detail.

My husband and I are shy in front of the camera, but they made us feel so comfortable and confident, making the whole experience a ton of fun!

I highly recommend them to everyone. I can confidently say that they will not disappoint! I will forever go to them to capture the special moments in my family's life.
