David Toms

After years spent working in the hectic but exciting professional environment of London, David Toms settled in Marbella, drawn by the scenery, the quality of life and above all, the gorgeous light. He brings broad experience and expertise to his studio, decor and lifestyle photography, but professes a particular enjoyment of wedding photography.

A great believer in natural, unforced images in which people are relaxed and at ease, he has a knack for taking away any sense of apprehension or self-consciousness. For this reason he doesn’t require lengthy preparation or elaborate staging, but sees the possibilities with the trained eye of an experienced professional capturing the moment as it happens and conveying the emotion.

“I work quickly when I need people’s attention. You won’t be waiting for hours while I take hundreds of photos of the bride and groom on their way to their guests at the reception. Instead, I’ll photograph them as they make their way, preferring to shoot series of images when they look relaxed and happy.”

Equally well at ease with people of all nationalities, he has been a witness to a great many colourful traditions, from Irish and English weddings to Northern European, Spanish, Gibraltarian and Indian ones.

Instead of working with rigid, highly commercial packages, David is flexible in his approach, tailoring his work to the needs of his clients and ensuring they get what they want. In agreeing prices beforehand, clients are assured there are no hidden costs to follow, and being a passionate professional and perfectionist, he is also very fair with his time.

“For me the perfect wedding album captures above all those special moments that live on.”

Hi David,

All I can say is WOW! We absolutely loved the shots from our big day by David Toms. From the moment we met David we knew that he was the right match for us. His creativity pours out of him along with his passion for what he does. He was perfectly part of the scenery on the day…climbing through bushes, lying on steps, hanging out of pillars to get the perfect shot- and he got so many perfect shots.

He captured the fun and life that was so apparent during the day wonderfully and made the usual family shots an easy experience for mortified mothers and mothers in law who hate posing for photos. We didn’t want too many staged shots, and he gave us exactly what we wanted. They were creative, arty, fun and magical. David Toms was definitely the perfect choice and comes highly recommended, and even higher than that!
