Pats on the back

Josh Tomalin Oxford Documentary Wedding Photographer


Here are some of the compliments I've received from the fab couples I've photographed:


"We’d recommend Josh to you in a heartbeat. From initial email and meeting each other, right through to delivery of the photographs, he’s been perfect – completely reliable, professional but easy-going, and a total pleasure to work with. We’d been pretty underwhelmed by a lot of the wedding photography that we’d seen around, so finding Josh and his work was a total relief.
And his pictures are exactly what we’d hoped for – awesome, hilarious and tender in equal measure. They catch the character (and characters) and the warmth and the love of the day really beautifully. Just as importantly, we were adamant that we wanted our wedding to be full of people whose company we properly enjoy, and Josh fitted right into that – it felt just like having another old friend with us. We weren't keen on being bossed about by a photographer, or on losing time doing formal photographs (totally fair play if that’s your thing - it’s just not ours; spending time with people was far more of a priority) so Josh was ideal for us – his style matched what we wanted, and he captured so much of the day without once getting in the way of us or our guests.
More than that, he put us all at ease, got along with the whole gang, laughed with our peculiarities, joined in with the party, and looked after us beautifully from start to finish. Josh is an extraordinary photographer and an absolute gentleman. As far as we're concerned, you couldn’t ask for more."

"Hi Josh,
 We’re back from our break away in the Lake District. Thanks so much again. We thought you were great, and have heard nothing but overwhelming praise for you from our guests. You blended in so well! The pictures are amazing! Works of art! Thank you so much. So many good shots I can't even begin to choose a favourite (although both Graeme and I went wow at that colour photo of me in the rotunda at RH). You are such a talent, and we feel very privileged to have had you take our pictures! I hope you enjoyed it and wish you the best for the other weddings you have lined up."

- Rachel and Graeme


"Hi Josh,
Firstly, thank you for the photographs they are stunning and exactly what we were after! I’m so sorry for the long delay in sending you our feedback. It was a hectic few days after returning from our fabulous honeymoon and packing up to head back home. We are now back in Australia and can finally catch our breath!
We are both super impressed with the quality of your work as have our friends and family. We love the landscape town hall shot of us both as well as the portrait photos upstairs in the gallery. I particularly like the black and white images. You must have seriously worked your socks off! Friends have commented on how hard you worked, your enthusiasm and professionalism. I would recommend you instantly!"

"We were delighted with our photos by Josh Tomalin. He has a lovely relaxed manner and captured our day perfectly, we would highly recommend him".

- Kate and Adam


"We would wholeheartedly recommend Josh. He created beautiful, discreet documentary photos capturing little hidden moments throughout the day. No awkward posing or cheesy grins. It was just what we wanted. Moreover he blended right in, mingled well with all our guests and was a pleasure to deal with at every stage. If you are looking for personal, unobtrusive, naturalistic photography of high quality with creative flair then Josh has just the set of talents you need."

- Jacinta and Richard


"Josh's style was perfect for our big day and really caught lots of the special intimate moments and interactions that made the occasion special."

- Alice and Grant


"We hired Josh through Bidvine to shoot our wedding. Since the first contact he has been so professional yet friendly and has made us feel completely relaxed about our wedding photos. The photos themselves perfectly captured our day and all our guests said they felt he was completely unobtrusive when shooting and he felt more like a guest than anything. Really can't recommend his approach and style enough for anyone wanting a less formal approach to their wedding photos and for someone to capture all the tiny moments that otherwise get missed. Thank you Josh, we couldn't be happier."

- Emma and Dan


Josh's style of wedding photography is exactly what we wanted. He made us feel comfortable and less stressed initially, but managed to get so many truely beautiful shots, making us feel like we were re-living our wedding day again when the photos were ready to view. Josh completely blended in with our guests, getting in on all the action, making the candid style so much better. For someone who doesn't like having photos taken, I can honestly say I even love the photos of me! We absolutely recommend Josh.

- Kate and Rob


"We hired Josh to photograph our wedding in September 2016, and were delighted with the outcome. We knew that we wanted informal, casual shots, rather than the traditional formal posed shots. He followed our brief brilliantly, and caught wonderful shots of us but, our family, guests, the location as well as all the little details that made the day unique to us.
From preparation, to pre-ceremony gathering to the ceremony to the party he was an excellent presence; easy to talk to, flexible and happy to go about his business without any direction required. He really caught the spirit of the day and was a delight to have with us. Fun, relaxed, professional, producing excellent photos!
Con much gusto, señor."
