Full Description
Hi, I’m Mark, a wedding photographer based in the Northeast (covering the entire UK & beyond). I started Eight9 taking product and lifestyle shots, I then was asked to photograph a relatives wedding and that did it, I loved it. You might see in my images; my style is influenced quite a bit by product and lifestyle photography.   My approach is to tell the story of your wedding day in the most natural and relaxed way possible, no awkward posing or fake set-ups! It's all about capturing real emotion. Using minimal posing I encourage you to be yourselves and just enjoy being newlyweds. I’ll scout for somewhere that suits you - with great light and interesting backgrounds. This could be an epic landscape or a quiet corner of your venue. Just have a cuddle and take it all in.  Your wedding day is special, so the images you get should be too. I personally edit all of your wedding photographs in my own unique style to ensure each client gets the beautiful images they deserve.

What is your most memorable wedding?

It has to be my Aunties, this was the first wedding I shot, I loved it.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Candid, non-intrusive, storytelling, standout, timeless

What about your business are you most proud of?

That bride and grooms trust me with their images for the biggest day of their lives.

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

Shoes .... wear comfortable shoes you'll be in them all day, oh and wear them in before the big day to avoid surprises. It also helps to not sweat the little things just sit back and enjoy the ride.

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

It has to be when the bride and groom put photos of themselves down the isle, they went from child hood getting older as they went down the isle.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

I like to start with a free couples shoot, this way they get to see my whole process from taking the images to delivery. If they want to book me, great they create a custom quote based on exactly what they want. closer t the wedding I sit down and discuss timings and their big day. week or two before the wedding I confirm the timings etc... then its their big day. After that I hand pick and edit the images from the day.

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

I love a good epic couples shot, but I honestly think that various candid shots capturing real emotion from the day are awesome.

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

the bride wanted to pretend to push the groom in a nearby lake. she pushed a bit harder than he was expecting and he nearly ended up in the lake for real.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

White or clear umbrellas, they look so cool.

Describe how you got into photography.

I'm not really sure, ever since I was little I've had a camera in my hands. but I got into wedding photography after shooting my aunties wedding.
