Most people in Pennsylvania know me as a wedding photographer but I get asked all the time if I do family portraits, child portraits, or high school senior photos. The answer is absolutely!

I don’t really market myself as any of those things since most of my time is spent photographing weddings, but now that I have over 300 previous wedding clients having little babies (and emailing me to do family photos)…….It’s time to start showcasing some of the work I can do with families, children, and seniors.

My style of photographing high school seniors and families is pretty much the same style that I approach weddings with. I take fun and relaxed photos. I like to capture the personalities of the people I am photographing, so if your child is being a goofball instead of sitting still and smiling…….I want to capture him or her being goofy. We will always find some time to get the nice smiling portrait but those true personality photos are the ones that you are going to cherish forever.

I will be posting new portraits here often so please check back to see more work……and don’t hesitate to contact me at Thomas@ThomasBeamanPhotography.com to ask me any questions.

Thanks again!

Caroline and Josh’s wedding was one of those special days. The perfect day to be a wedding photographer.

Last year when I photographed Caroline and Josh’s engagement session, I knew that I was working with an amazing couple. They were so down to earth and so awesome to work with! Obviously I was looking forward to their wedding day since we made those original images……….and their wedding did not disappoint. It was one of those days that you do not want to end. It was a day filled with laughter, tears, live music, dancing, amazing friends & family, and of course……….more laughter.

Every wedding needs a handful of wedding professionals to make sure that all of the little details look amazing. Caroline and Josh picked some amazing people to work with and it was a pleasure working with each one of them. Here they are in no particular order:

Reception location: Private residence in Mechanicsburg, PA.

Catering: Patty Armbrust

Flowers: Terri MaClay

Wedding Photographer: Thomas Beaman Photography

Cake: Annie Standley

Band: My Hero Zero from State College

DJ: Mixed Up Productions (Mike Miller)

Dress: Tara’s Bridal

I always get excited seeing my work published in a magazine. This time it is in The Knot. The photo editor of The Knot contacted me a few months ago and asked if they could use this ceremony photo from The Shawnee Inn & Golf Resort.

Last month I had the privilege of photographing my very first wedding at Riverdale Manor in Lancaster, PA. This place was gorgeous. The grounds were perfect for a wedding photographer. There was not really a bad place to take a photo. I can’t wait to go back to this amazing location.

Kristan and Jason had their ceremony and reception at Riverdale and the weather was beautiful.

Here is a slideshow of my favorite moments:

And here are a few of my favorite images from the day:
