I always feel very honoured when I’m asked to be a couples’ wedding photographer. This is, after all, one of the most important days of your lives.
My aim is to tell a story with my wedding photography from the beginning of the day through to your first dance. I try to capture all of the little details that you have taken months, sometimes years, planning from the perfume that you are wearing to the table decorations.
Your wedding day is an emotional rollercoaster, from anticipation and excitement through to tears of joy and laughter. On the day, it will be impossible to take everything in. Before you know it, you’ll be ending your first day as husband and wife. My wife says she had no idea what our flowers in the church looked like and can’t recall even seeing them! That’s what I’m there for!
But most of all, your day is about the people. And that’s the bit I really love.
You don’t marry the person you can live with … you marry the person you can’t live without.
Comfortable in front of the camera
One of the most important parts of my job is making sure you, the bride and groom, feel at ease in front of the camera. This is where my years of dealing with people comes into its own!
It’s not an easy thing to do. Personally, I hate being on “the other side”. But my laid-back style helps even the most camera-shy couples enjoy their day. My style is very natural. I particularly enjoy natural light photography – but you don’t need to have a sunny day to create mesmerising outdoor shots!
At our pre-wedding meeting, we will run through the timings for your day, your list of must have photos and any dos and don’ts! But the most important thing is that you enjoy your day and can take things at your own pace.
The heart of marriage is memories
When you return from your Honeymoon, you will sit down together and look back on your perfect day from beginning to end, and everything in between.
Wedding photography shouldn’t be about settling for second best. After all, your photos and memories are all that you will have to remember the day.
Let’s have a chat
First thing’s first, send me an email or give me a call to check availability for your special day. I’m always happy to meet a couple to discuss your plans. It’s a good chance for us to get to know each other so you can be sure you’re making the right choice. Give me a call on 07531 120817.
We had Mark photograph our recent wedding. He started at the church before the arrival of the groom and guests and was with us all day until the last dance, as we discussed in our pre-wedding meeting. He took all of the pictures that we requested, group/family shots, as well as informal shots throughout the day of our guests and of elements of our wedding decorations etc. using his own artistic skill. We have a wonderful collection of photos to remember our special day by and when we first viewed them we were blown away and surprised by some of the things he had captured. We are so pleased we picked Mark to be a part of our special day and capture the memories we will treasure forever.
Mark took our lovely wedding photos. He is very friendly and polite. Leading up to the wedding he was very good with communications and we had a meeting with him a couple of months before where he made sure all details were correct and gave us a run through for everything on the day.
We were so glad we found a photographer who we felt comfortable with. We had all our photos sent to us within a week which was brilliant. The quality of photos was amazing and had a few canvases made using photos he had taken. High recommended. Would certainly use him again and recommend to friends/family.
Mark managed to capture our special day and provide us with a set of photos that we will cherish forever. He was able to organise all of our photos and guest to make the challenge of getting them all done in a short period of time easy and hassle free. Mark even stepped in to sort out dodgy looking button holes and was there whenever he was needed.
Mark spent the whole day with us, from the bride getting ready at 10am to us having our first dance at 8:30pm. I would not change a single thing. Mark provided us with exactly what we wanted and I would recommend him to anyone.
This is how wedding photography should be.
We used Mark for our wedding in August. We had our photos taken in the woods. Unfortunately for us, the weather was not on our side; but the rain and muck didn’t deter Mark from laying down on the floor in his best clobber to take some lovely photos! He also bought two large white umbrellas so we could use them to shelter from the rain and actually made a lovely feature for our photos. All in all, a great service.
We chose Mark after seeing his work at a wedding fair and we were really impressed. We could not have picked a more fantastic photographer! Mark is brilliant at putting everyone at ease and capturing the special moments from our day without us evening knowing he was there! Mark had such fantastic ideas for our group shots as well as our couple shots, everyone has said how beautiful each and every picture is. We cannot thank you enough for our incredible pictures of our perfect day, we will always cherish them!
My husband and I chose Mark after seeing his work from our friend’s previous wedding. We were blown away by how he captured their special day. We wanted that for our day too! Sure enough Mark didn’t disappoint. How he conducted himself and organised our guests on the day was great. The photos he took captured the feeling and essence of our day entirely. I’m more than pleased. I would recommend Mark over and over again.
