We absolutely love weddings! I can't believe that I am able to capture the happiest moments in people's lives. We strive to document everything as it happens. Our style of photography throughout the Ceremony and Reception is considered to be photo-journalistic, as we like to be seen and then quickly forgotten by your guests and family members who are there to celebrate you. When you look at your pictures later, you will be able to quickly see the smiles, tears, and cheers as they actually happened.
We rarely ask people to strike a pose for us during the festivities of the day instead we like to capture those moments in time in their truest form. However, during the Wedding Party portraits, Bride/Groom portraits, and Family portraits we deftly and artfully direct people on how to look their best in every shot.

There will always be a special place in our hearts for Elopements. There is something about a wedding getaway with your closest friends and family, to some secluded location hidden away from the rest of the world. The beauty of Elopements is that there are no limits as to where the ceremony can occur. Whether our couples choose to read their vows on the top of a mountain, have their first kiss in matrimony along the sandy beaches of the Lost Coast, or exchange rings deep in the Redwood Forest - we are there capturing every intimate and special moment.
The other great thing about Elopements is that our focus as photographers is almost entirely on you and your significant other. Are you thinking about having an elopement? Send us a message about your ideas! Maybe we can recommend ways to make those special moments even better.
What I love most about photography is that it allows me to meet such amazing people! We get to celebrate the happiest moments in their lives while taking pictures that they will treasure for many years to come.
We get to explore the surrounding areas, sometimes driving several hours to find that perfect spot. I think one of the things I love most about traveling with my clients is hearing them say, "I never even knew this place existed!" and then seeing them post pictures on their social media where they went up again to further explore the area.
If you have been yearning to step outside of the box and go exploring with me to take those family/couples pictures that you have been wanting for years, call me/email me! Let's go have an adventure!
"Before your special day, you find yourself booking more vendors than you thought possible. You hope for talent, flexibility, professionalism, and the ability to stand out in a way that helps you capture the most important thing about the day - the love.
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 a 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.
This allowed us to be ourselves in each moment, and we now have the memories encapsulated to remember forever. Thanks again to Sean and Molly, and Sean Thomas photography."

Sean is the absolute best! We found him on Instagram and booked his Adventure Session for our engagement shoot in Yosemite in October 2020. Before our drive from San Francisco to Yosemite, Sean made sure we were well prepared for what to expect during our 2-day shoot, which included a sunset session at Taft Point as well as a sunrise at Glacier Point and morning session in the Yosemite Valley the next day. We had 2 phone calls before the shoot and Sean walked through the schedule and logistics with us in detail. He made sure to give us a list of what to bring, offered to send us pictures for outfit inspiration, and was even prepared with snacks in case we got hungry during our long shooting day.
For our sunrise session, Sean recommended that we all wake up early to be the first ones at Glacier Point since the park was a bit busier around 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 after our shoot, Sean even offered to pull over to the side of the road and take a couple extra photos of us with Cathedral Peak in the background because he saw the lighting was perfect.
He made us feel comfortable from the beginning and his ability to direct the shoot definitely reflected in how natural and candid our photo gallery turned out. Kudos to Sean for going above and beyond for us and huge shoutout to his wife, Molly, who did an amazing job editing the images! We personally love the overall aesthetic of their pictures and we were not disappointed with our decision to trust Sean and Molly with these pictures that we will treasure for a lifetime!

Let me start off by saying Sean Thomas Photography is seriously the BEST!!! 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! I recently did a shoot with him on the Oregon Coast and I was seriously blown away! His attention for 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 at photography, his Wife and talented partner is not to be overlooked. She is probably the best editor I have ever seen. She makes every photo look so dreamy! They make the perfect pair! If you live in California or Oregon I would highly recommend you hire Sean Thomas Photography! You will NOT be disappointed!

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 a of fun!
They gave us our pictures back incredibly fast which has not been my experience with any other photographer. I was super impressed with the quality of their work!
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!
