Hello there!

I’m Mark Raines – a professional Photographer based in the town of Harleston in Norfolk. I am just a stone’s throw from the Suffolk border, which makes me perfectly positioned for Norfolk weddings and Suffolk weddings. But I am also happy to take a trip further afield too!

I am primarily a wedding photographer. That said, I also do my fair share of family photoshoots, commercial and event work too.

Photography is my passion

Photography is my passion. It always has been and I think it probably always will be too. Photography is just something that I do. It isn’t just a job to me. It is a privilege that I am being trusted to capture couples and families most precious memories that will last a life time and beyond. That is how I feel about every. single. wedding that I attend. No wedding is the same and never should it be either.

What’s my style?

I am a documentary style wedding photographer capturing natural light and love. What does that mean? Well, it means that I capture moments as and when they happen. So if it rains on your wedding day then who cares? So what! Let’s embrace it. My photos will be a true reflection of how your day was – from the craziness (there’s usually some of that!) to the chilled moments when you realise that everything will be fine, and to be honest, even if there are some hiccups along the way, i’m ready for that too. After all, I’ve shot a lot of weddings (over 15 years worth) in my time so it takes a lot to surprise me! Now there’s a challenge indeed!

My laid-back approach to photography tends to put people at ease. The resulting shots are natural and really capture the essence of those individuals and that is what I love.

Capturing the little moments and the big ones

Those little looks, cheeky smiles, tears of joy, laughter and the smallest details all add up to create a wonderful record of your day.

Let me bring those memories back to life for you to treasure for years to come.

Let’s meet

So if you’re looking for a professional Norfolk wedding photographer, please take a few minutes to look at some of my work. You will be able to get a good feel for the style of my photography together with the quality of my photos. Take a moment to read my blog about real wedding couples too.

If you like my style, you will also want to know if you’ll get on with me and the price is right! I’m always happy to meet couples and families to discuss your plans. So whether it’s over coffee and chocolate cake or even a glass of wine, I’ll be there.
