So I suppose this is the bit where I tell you how much I love being a wedding photographer and start to drop words like documentary, creative, natural, contemporary, candid, the truth is I’m all the above and a little bit more, you see I don’t want to pigeonhole my style, for me that would just be a restriction on my creativity, I take photos of what I see, people being human, moments of feeling, touch, and joy, always trying to capture images in a real and honest way. Sure, I’ll do the group shots, but these are done quickly and efficiently, giving us more time to capture the real moments of the day. For me weddings are so much more than just the Bride & Groom, sounds a little bit controversial but let me explain, weddings are all about the people, family, and friends the guests who you have invited to spend this amazing day with you, of course, we’ll get some amazing portrait photos of you two, but I will also be capturing the story of the day as it unfolds, from the smallest detail you’ve spent months making and organising to the crazy rip-roaring weird uncle dancing later on in the evening. We all know somebody like this, right? I’ve been photographing weddings full time for just over 4 years now, from full-on festival weddings to cool hip inner-city weddings, but no matter where I find myself it always comes back to the people. The thing is we are all living this transient 100 mph lifestyle, always busy, always working, we rarely get time to see our loved ones to spend quality time with them, that’s what I love about weddings, everyone’s there for you, dressed up and looking sharp, happy smiley faces. It’s a great place to be and it’s a day you will never ever forget, so when you look back at your weddings photos in years to come you will remember all the fun you had, that look, that kiss, the hugs, knocking out those shapes on the dance floor with your friends into the early hours of the morning.

"we absolutely love them"
Thank you Lee & Melissa for this loveley 5 star review: When searching for a photographer for our wedding Marks photos really stood out as a cut above the rest. His photos were exactly what we were looking for, natural and in the moment and upon receiving our wedding photos today we could not be happier, we absolutely love them. He captured every part of the day beautifully. Since the wedding many of our guests commented on how good he was. Possibly the best compliment we can give is that you barely notice him snapping pictures at the wedding so nothing feels forced, you're always at ease and relaxed. A great guy and even greater photos, we couldn't have asked for more. Lee & Melissa :-)

Mark went above and beyond to capture every moment
From start to finish the service Mark has provided has been absolutely impeccable. From the moment of making my booking I felt at complete ease and had every confidence that my photos were in good hands. Our pre-wedding meeting was helpful and helped me to ease my nerves in the build-up to the big day, his friendly demeanor helped bring a sense of calm to what could have easily been a stressful time. On the day itself Mark went above and beyond to capture every moment of our special day, working tirelessly to capture some amazing shots. I didn’t feel the constant pressure to pose and Mark’s style of photography allowed for an unobtrusive photo experience, as somebody who often shies away from the camera, this was greatly appreciated. I cannot stress enough how tirelessly Mark works on the day, a comment made by all my guests, it is obvious that he loves what he does and this shows through his commitment to capturing every special moment. The finishing product was delivered in a charming oak box with a memory stick engraved with our names and wedding date. The photos were beautifully put together, with a highlight slideshow that has been perfect to show to friends and family. Mark has also been incredibly helpful with picking out a suitable album to display our photos, I am so excited to get one. On a final note, I cannot recommend Mark highly enough he has allowed me, my husband and my family to relive the day through his stunning work and I am eternally grateful. All the best Mark, you’re a gem! Natasha and Aaron X
