Spotlight – Thompson Poole Photography

Thompson Poole Photography Logo

Wendi & Denise are some of the sweetest women you will ever meet. I believe it was pure fate that made our paths cross.

Wendi is the photographer genius behind Thompson Poole Photography and Denise ‘holds down the fort’, allowing Wendi to focus on the creative angle of the craft. Thompson Poole Photography is a wedding photographer business based in Austin, San Antonio, and Houston – but, if you follow their blog you’ll discover that they travel all over the state for their clients. Now that’s customer service!

We met in the summer of 2009 at a NEAWP meeting in Austin, Texas. Denise introduced herself and immediately asked if Wendi could photograph my chocolates, stating ‘she loves chocolate and was thrilled when she learned of Delysia Chocolatier.”

Since that fateful encounter in 2009, Wendi’s wish has been granted several times. She has photographed all of our chocolate products, my two boys, and even took my professional portraits. Thompson Poole Photography focuses primarily on weddings, but Wendi loves food and has an incredible eye for food photography. I have never seen a photo from her that I haven’t just loved.

I believe that a business is only as successful as those vendors they surround themselves with. Thank you fate for introducing us to Thompson Poole Photography.

Nicole Patel is the proprietor of and chocolatier for Delysia Chocolatier. In 2006 while pregnant with her first son, Nicole made a batch of chocolate truffles as holiday gifts. To the delight of friends and family, she continued to create chocolates as a way to relieve stress from her corporate engineering job. In 2008, a chance trip to Becker Vineyards led to Nicole being the first in Texas to make truffles using local wines. Within five years, what started as a hobby turned Delysia into one of the Top Ten Chocolatiers in the Americas, as selected by the International Chocolate Salon.

  1. Thanks Nicole! The admiration is mutual. What is there not to love about photographing chocolate? The free samples alone are enough to keep us coming back.
