Hey, I’m Mark, but everyone calls me Happy Bob! My motto is that your wedding may only last a few hours, but your wedding photography will perfectly encapsulate your dream big day, so that those loving memories can last forever! After all, what price do you put on memories? Dresses get put away, cakes get eaten and confetti gets swept up, but when you have fantastic pictures these lovely memories are yours to keep forever This is why it’s essential that they are are the best that money can buy. And that’s where I come in I’m a multi award-winning passionate storyteller, photographer and videographer, based in Peterborough, UK – although I do travel all over the UK and to destinations if needed – who will go to the ends of the earth to ensure your precious moments are documented, ensuring you’ll be able to replay your story over and over. ’My candid style and natural story-telling approach allows your day to unravel in real time, unobtrusively with a relaxing flow. Services Offered Having been a professional photographer for over 20-years. I like to capture those little ‘never-to-be-repeated‘ moments in time that allow you to keep forever. I do this by using natural light, so I become much less obtrusive, as I don’t direct or dictate. This allows me to portray the day as it naturally unfolds. Other than the odd, pre-planned traditional group photo, I spend the majority of the day photographing real and meaningful moments between family and friends. Weddings are full of fleeting moments and so my style wholly allows me to remain in the ‘heart of the action’ without impacting on the day’s atmosphere.

Fab photographer the perfect person for any occass
If there was more stars we would definitely be giving Mark aka ‘Happy Bob’ more. Such a fab photographer he made us laugh throughout our photo shoots. We gave him a list of photos that we wanted over a yr ago, which he bought with him to work through as well as coming up with other unique photo opportunities. Such a lovely guy we couldn’t be happier.

Master of Candid Mark was absolutely brilliant, he took a lot of time and care to tailor the photos as we wanted. Looking through them all the candid relaxed photos give us great memories of the day.

Fantastic pics and a great guy
Mark took the pics at our wedding last week. He was absolutely fantastic. Great pictures. He is like a ninja with a camera and turns up where you least expect him and the result is amazing. I would highly recommend HB Total Media to anyone.

The right choice for our big day!
Mark produced what everyone wants on their wedding day... excellent pictures! More than that, he worked in a friendly, professional, timely and unobtrusive manner... all the guests loved him. So of course he's got to be expensive you're thinking..... but no, his fees are very modest.... for a top quality end result. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend HB Total Media.

FAQ

What is your most memorable wedding?

A wedding in lockdown with only the bride and groom and the two mothers. I had the two mothers pose with bottles of Corona lager, and getting them to pose sticking two fingers up! I just love doing quirky shots if possible so we can have a laugh on your big day.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Professional, courteous, easy going, fun, laid back

What about your business are you most proud of?

The fact that having lost my full time photography job in lockdown, I have been able to launch a new business that’s gained nearly 50 Google five star reviews in less than two-years

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Both setup a standing order for £10/week. You won’t miss the money, but by the end of the year you will have over £1000 saved. Easy!

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

When wedding guests thank you afterwards, telling you how fantastic the pictures you took were.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

I like to meet people prior some can get a good feel for exactly what they want and to make sure I know exactly what pictures they want so I am able to exceed their expectations every time.

What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?

Anything that they think is fun and that encapsulates their personality. Weddings are very personal.

What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?

Having a magazine background, I like to get the boys reading a wedding magazine, looking shocked and all the girls reading a magazine of the groom’s hobby with a look of horror on their face. I think it’s a great quirky way of doing a personal picture that relates to the bride and groom.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Umbrellas and a good sense of humour!

Describe how you got into photography.

I worked at a major magazine publishing company for 20-years prior to being made redundant due to C19.
