- A little bit about Peter Thomas photography -

I’ve had a keen interest in photography since my childhood. Photography remained a big part of what I did and what inspired me.

When I was asked by friends to shoot their wedding in Edinburgh I jumped at the chance. I enjoyed myself so much that this became the starting point of my career.

It’s hard to believe, but that first wedding was way back in 2005! After that first wedding, things started to snowball. I got asked by friends to do weddings, and then friends of friends. Word soon got around! After a while I decided to concentrate on wedding photography full time. In the last few years I’ve expanded into portrait (people & pets) and commercial photography. I opened our Belfast studio in 2011 and have since welcomed many families through the door.

“I love capturing life’s special moments. From the birth of a child to the celebration of a golden wedding anniversary. It’s a real privilege to be able to capture these moments forever.”

The story so far...
