    We are glad we booked Mark as our wedding photographer

    His rates were easily available and straightforward. He worked the full event from us getting ready to the dance floor. We provided dinner but not even sure if he got to eat it with all the great group table shots he took.

    Communication before the day was easy. We sent him the itinerary and our desired photolist, he was helpful to make recommendations when we asked.

    Mark had experience with our venue which was a plus. We were using an outdoor space and he took nice shots showing off the space, people, campfire, fireworks, sparklers, kids, and there were some fun candids. We were pleasantly surprised with all the creative shots he took. Nothing but compliments from our guests about Mark’s crowd work that night.

    We were given digital drives with the pictures, there were so many pictures to choose from. By giving us the flash drives with the digital pictures we could select our favourites and print how we please. He has offered to help edit pictures if needed. Pictures were in the mail and in our hands promptly.

    We would gladly recommend Mark for any wedding or event.

    Thank you Mark!

    -Greg & Greg

    Excellent photographer

    My wife and I had a great experience with Mark. He was on point with all our needs and provided excellent service. Our wedding day went much smoother thanks to Mark. He handled everything professionally and got us our photos in a very timely fashion. Really happy with the end results. We've been returning customers ever since.

    Excellent Photographer

    Mark is professional, creative and genuine; his photographs are evocative, flawless and essentially perfect. He photographed my wedding in August 2018. Marks work deserves recognition not only because he is extremely talented but because he will work endlessly during your special day, there was not a time where I saw him sit down or even take a drink. He is always trying to capture every moment as small at it may be, you will see this once you get your pictures. If you are unsure about who to choose as a photographer, look no further. I know it is difficult with all the options, but just take a look at his reviews they are all 5 stars, well deserved 5 stars. The perfection of service that he delivers is outstanding and given that the event he is capturing is of paramount importance, look no further Mark is the one you were looking for a little Starwars joke!

    I found Mark through a simple internet search. I felt as though I might be rolling the dice for such an important event, so I booked him for an engagement/family shoot before the wedding. After seeing the photos from that shoot, I knew he was going to be perfect for our wedding! Mark has an eye for the perfect locations to shoot, as well as knowing what lighting best suits the photos and the individuals. He is extremely easy going and personable – an absolute joy to work with. Our wedding photos turned out absolutely amazing! He provided a great mix of photos of scenery and set up, as well as staged family photos and also a ton of beautiful candids of us and all of our guests. We plan to use Mark each year moving forward for our family photos. We feel so lucky that we found such an amazing photographer!

    Beach Wedding

    When my husband and I got engaged, we spontaneously decided to get married at sunset on Balm Beach 3 weeks after our engagement. I had looked online for photographers who specialized in beach weddings on George Bay and Mark was one of the top listed. Not only was he super accommodating and flexible with working with us on such short notice, he was really knowledgeable about the area and knew the best places to do photoshoots without even me asking. He had done his due diligence to scope out the area on his own time to really capture potential moments for us during our ceremony and photoshoot which I thought was really amazing! It was so smooth working with him that a year later, we hired him for our big church wedding. Once again, everything went really smoothly, and as a bride, I didn't need to stress because he's really great at what he does, all the way to the editing and giving us the photos after... I think that's what is really important about choosing your photographer - you don't want to have to think and worry on your big day, you want someone you can trust to do what they need to do to make you look the best in those photographic memories that will last forever and that's what Mark was for us!
