It's All About
Let’s face it, if you were to go to one of the many parks in the Lehigh Valley on a beautiful Spring or Fall day, you could throw a stone in any direction and almost always find yourself a different photographer. Finding and booking a photo session should be more than just searching the internet for a photographer or asking friends about who their photographer was, searching for the right photographer for you, your family, and your special moment, should be about your connection with your photographer. I remember our search for our perfect photographer for my wedding day, and the number of photographers we talked to, until finally we met a couple and just knew they were our perfect fit for our special day. Your photographer should fit that bill just the same.
Now, that being said, I know that with so many talented photographers in the world and even in the direct area, it can really be a tough decision, but that’s why I’m here. I’m here to help point you in that right direction and navigate you through the process. After all, you have enough to worry about your special days that you don’t need to be worrying about your photographer. I’m here to help take away as much stress as possible. Like, how (un)comfortable you feel in front of the camera, your day-of timeline, who will be photographing what, and yes, and I’m even there to help suggest some great day-of attire.
Your experience starts from the first time we chat, all the way through the final delivery of your photographs, and absolutely everything in between. Booking me as your photographer isn’t about just putting another person on the calendar, it’s about building a relationship with you first and foremost. After all, I don’t think I know a single person who is totally 100% comfortable in front of a camera, but … I want to get you there. Spending the day with your photographer should be an experience you won’t forget and that photographer needs to know what’s important to you that they capture on your special day. Do you really want a complete stranger documenting all your precious moments?
As your photographer, my goal is to document your story exactly as it unfolds, from the smallest of details to the full scene of the moment. We’re there to capture the moments you’re a part of and the ones you didn’t even see. Everything from senior sessions, to athletic sessions, to weddings, to everyday moments, we want to be a part of it.
It’s going to be an absolutely magical day and we’re going to help you remember it all.

Step 1. Let's Connect
Before you're ever in front of our camera, we have to be a great fit. Every time I photography is unique because every single person is unique. Building a friendship with my clients has always been one of my top priorities and getting to know you is how we know we'll be able to capture your day perfectly. Plus, it is way more fun that way! You're going to be looking at these photos forever, don't let some stranger take them!
Step 2. Save the Date
As soon as you are ready and able, we highly recommend booking us as soon as possible! We know that you're calendars can get busy in a hurry with sports, activities, family events, etc. and unfortunately so does ours. We only book so many sessions in the course of the month to make sure we have enough time to do our edits. So don't delay, book today!
Step 3. Your Timeline
There are a lot of elements that go into the many photo sessions we've done over the years. From making sure there's a changing area on-site, to having props and "extras" available, to making sure your photo session happens at the right time of day. There's no better time to plan out all those elements than now. We want to hear about your crazy ideas and turn them into a reality. You want bubbles and balloons, or maybe confetti, we've got you covered.
Step 4. Your Session
Oh my goodness, your day is finally here! All the time of planning and guess what? We're here to capture every last moment of your day in every way possible. All the questions have been answered, the timeline is done and it's time for your gorgeous details and memories to be captured!
Step 5. Delivery
It's time for us to deliver your photographs!
The anticipation will totally be killing you but don't worry, that's what sneak peeks are for! Good things take time so expect a turn around time of about 3-4 weeks.
We can't wait to get your photographs back to you and let you relive that day all over again!!
We'll schedule a Zoom call to walk you through your gallery, talk about our creative process, talk about your edits in detail - discussing what could be done to each image if needed. Sometimes, it helps to see an image in different styles to really see what's possible and that's what our Zoom session is for.
Still on the fence? Listen to what our clients say.
This is the photographer you’ve always wanted. He gave my family of 20 (10 young children) his full attention. Not just that, he was a total blast to work with, bringing out smiles as he exclaimed how much fun he was having working with us. The variety of photos he gave us was more than we could have asked for! Such a passion behind the camera. This is no ‘point and click,’ your whole family will end up having a better time purely because he’s your photographer. Seriously, you’re making a mistake picking anyone else! Thank you so much Tom, we LOVE our family photos!
Thomas Kay Photography is hands down the best!!! Tom is so easy to work with!! He’s funny and laid back ... he makes photo shoots fun!! He goes above and beyond to make sure you get amazing pictures!! Lauren always has a blast working with him! His pictures get better and better every time!

Thomas Kay is wonderful to work with. My daughter has done a few sessions with him now and the images are always incredible. He is an amazing photographer, has extensive knowledge of the dance world, and always makes sure to get the best capture. Extremely friendly and put my daughter at ease immediately, letting her take the lead but also giving gentle guidance/suggestions when needed. Highly recommend Thomas Kay Photography and will most definitely be booking more sessions in the future.
My girls just did a powder shoot with Thomas Kay, they had so much fun & the results are absolutely stunning. Thomas is an extremely talented photographer & he is knowledgeable about dance too. Thomas is very friendly & was good with the girls & they felt comfortable. The entire experience was amazing. We will definitely do it again! I highly recommend Thomas Kay Photography!
Tom is an amazing and very patience photographer. He made my daughter with anxiety issues very comfortable. Before we left both our session my daughters where asking when they could do another shoot with Tom!
Thomas Kay is so incredible to work with. He has knowledge of the dance world which helps him know what shots will work and which won't. He also has vision to capture basically any shot (dance or otherwise) and make it look amazing. His calm personality makes it easy for the subject to feel comfortable.
