Full Description
Hello I’m Mark and I have the best job in the world – I am a professional award winning wedding photographer. I haven't known much else in life except photographing weddings for a living, I shot my first wedding when I was only 14 years old, I wouldn't change anything in the past 13 years of photographing weddings and my journey to being the best photographer and husband I can possibly be. Wedding photography is my full time profession and it’s incredibly rewarding delivering images to my clients that they will cherish forever. I love to work in the most creative way I can capturing moments that display beauty and evoke emotion. For me wedding photography is such a personal thing, which is why I like to meet my bride and grooms when possible and build up a relationship long before the big day. I’m husband to my beautiful wife Danielle and we have been married since August 2015 and I can't forget about our 4 legged member of the family, our yorkshire terrier Milo.

Such a lovely, engaging man
We had mark Barnes at our wedding yesterday and he was absolutely fantastic from our initial meeting with him and throughout the entire day. Such a lovely, engaging man who was such a professional. Showed us some of the shots on the day and they look amazing, he deserves all the awards he wins and more. Can’t wait to see our album but I already know it will be brilliant. We had a very wet day too and our small son to work with but nothing was a problem to Mark. Many many thanks!
