Full Description
My Photography Style - Unobtrusive, Canned, documentary style.... This captures the feel and emotion of the day without taking you away from enjoying your wedding with all your guests. We will do styled couple photos which we can discuss this when we meet up. My Editing Style - Soft & Dreamy look with natural light... Gone are the days of heavily process HDR Imagery with crunchy clarity and everything to the max which creates a very unnatural look which was good back in the 90's and noughties with metallic look to wedding dresses. Soft dreamy edits give your images a look that will give your wedding photos a look that will look stunning in both digital and print form. I no have my Drone licence and for 2023 bookings I am adding Drone Photography as a upgrade package or is included within the Full Day Wedding Photography. I am really looking forward to getting some unique stunning photos with my 2023 wedding couples! Awards & Nominations: I am proud to be a Qualified Professional Guild Photographer and now hold some Award winning images which you can view on my website. I have also had my work published in County Wedding Magazines and Nominated for North West Wedding Photographer 2023. Music & Bands I like a lot of different music but I do love to listen to Rock and Heavy Metal with the likes of Metallica, Biffy Clyro, Avenge Sevenfold, System of a Down etc..

The Best Wedding Photographer we could have wished for!
We had the best day! We were not expecting to have our wedding outside but on the day we decided at the last minute to have an outdoors wedding at the Gazebo. Mark was not expecting this at all but he went with the flow and certainly did not disappoint with the gallery he got. Mark documented our wedding day in a very natural way that is exactly how we remember it. We will be recommending Mark to all our family and friends....
Response from the supplier
That is awesome! Thank you very much for your kind review. It was such a great day and worked perfectly outside with some nice soft light. Congratulations again and wish you all the best...

Alternative Christmas Eve Wedding
We were so happy to have Mark as our wedding photographer and super happy we were able to book him for 24th December 2022. Our wedding was very small and intimate with just close family and a few of our friends. Mark was great from when we first spoke with him and nothing was too much. We would certainly recommend Mark to our friends and family....

Our Special Day
Mark was our photographer at our Wedding on 08.10.2022 we had meetings before the day and Mark wrote down every last detail. On the day he arrived early and made us feel as ease, capturing the pre wedding piccys. He was stealth during the ceremony taking some beautiful photos. We have just had our photographs sent to us and we couldn’t be happier, the colours are superb and a great variety from each section of the day. Definitely quality. Mark has been in contact with us throughout the build up to the wedding and afterwards, nothing was too much trouble and communications were excellent. Always going the extra mile. We are so pleased Mark was our photographer capturing memories to last us a lifetime. We can highly recommend Mark to friends, family and all as he’s brilliant at what he does and you can tell he loves what he does for a living. Score out of 100 would be 100 all day long.

Everything felt natural and relaxed 👌
Mark was amazing as our wedding photographer and looked after us both ever step of the way. We both had surprises for each other which we spoke with Mark about privately and he managed to get the shots and also gave us advice on how we could proceed with the surprises to get the best photos. Everything felt so natural and relaxed it was amazing. Thank you so much for capturing our memories ❤️

FAQ

What is your most memorable wedding?

There are lots to be honest, but the ones that stand out to me over the last year are; 1. Wedding in a field - After the ceremony the wedding party headed over to their farm to enjoy the day in their field where they had little tipi tents, hay bails, campfire and live music. 2. Jurassic Park Theme - This was an awesome wedding at The Oaks Hotel in Burnley and the couple had full size cardboard cutouts of the characters from Jurassic Park together with people dressed up as dinosaurs.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Reactive - Thoughtful - adventurous - mindful - unobtrusive

What about your business are you most proud of?

What makes me most proud of my business and what I do is the reactions from my wedding couples. Seeing someone really happy with the photo gallery I have produced for them and creating images that they will treasure for their life. I am also extremely proud of the recognition I have achieved over the years for my work both as a Wedding Photographer but also a Landscape Photographer. I still can't believe that I have achieved Silver Awards from The Guild of Professional Photographers and had my works published in various national and local publications.

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

Just keep calm and remember it is your day to enjoy. Also, its your Wedding Day and not a photo-shoot!

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

A Crisp Wall - This was for one of my wedding couples at Crow Wood in Burnley and one of their wedding guests made a Crisp Wall as a surprise to them. Basically it is a wall with the brides favourite flavours of crisps which wedding guests can help themselves to. Its a unique touch that really surprised the bride and groom on the day and also something for them to keep afterwards...

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Once we have made contact and a potential wedding couple have been sent my wedding brochure we would then go through the following; 1. Arrange to meet up for a coffee to discuss things and go through what you are planning for your big day. 2. If we are both happy to move forward we can then sort out the booking and get your wedding date booked. 3. We will keep in touch between the time you book in with me and your wedding day. I have various bits of information which I share with my couples along the way and share ideas. 4. If you have booked and engagement shoot then we will get a date booked in for this. 5. Pre-wedding Meeting. This is normally done around 3-4 weeks before the wedding day and it is now when we will confirm the timings, group shots, locations and contingency plans for adverse weather for example. 6. The day before your wedding - I will give you a quick call to confirm everything. 7. After your wedding day - I will produce a Sneaky Peak Gallery for you within 3 days and publish for you on your own private online gallery. 8. Your full gallery will be ready within 5-6 weeks after your wedding day 9. Once your gallery is published, you can choose your prints and if you want a wedding album we can start designing this. 10. Your Personalised Keepsake USB Drive will be completed and posted out to you.

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

Simply photos are the ones that never get old and these are the must haves for hanging on the wall for example. We definitely need a photo of just the wedding couple looking at each other taking some time out away from the busy day.

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

This is a tough one but I suppose from the last 12 months would have to be from the Jurassic Park Themed wedding I did earlier this year at The Oaks Hotel in Burnley.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

There are various things we can do here. Depending on the venue, there maybe options around the venue where we can get some nice photos out of the rain. Most wedding couples will embrace it and we can use the rain to our advantage and get creative with umbrellas and Off Camera Flash.

Describe how you got into photography.

My photography journey has bee a long a slow development while running two businesses. My passion started with the outdoors and landscape photography, which I still have a massive passion for and love heading up in to the mountains on a wild camp to catch sunset and sunrise. This then developed into doing wedding photography for friends and family which then progressed to where I am today. I have now left the two businesses behind and just do Wedding Photography and Sell my Landscapes. I can honestly say it is one of the best decisions I have made and love meeting up with wedding couples starting planning their big day to finally delivering their full gallery.
