Exceptional people and service
We are fortunate and grateful to have worked with Mike, Mark, and the whole team at The Light Box for our wedding photography and videography services. Our friends have used their services for their engagement and wedding photos in past years, having personally attended these weddings, we had the opportunity to witness the incredible work they do and the passion that goes into it first hand.
Understandably, when planning for your own wedding, there can be a lot of decisions to make regarding the venue, the accommodations, the wedding garments, hair, make-up, honeymoon, transportation, wedding favours, food menu, music, photography, videography, entertainment, guest lists, seating chart, welcome table etc. the list can go on for days.
If there is anything worth spending on for your wedding, it is the photography and videography services, we came to this realization later than we should have, so for anyone reading this - the wedding photos and videos are your memories. When you try to remember your wedding day, it will feel like looking through frosted glass - the photos and videos will re-tell your love story unlike anything else.
We chose to visit a beautiful park near the lake to shoot our engagement photos in November 2019. We envisioned our photos to be near the water, with the scenic background of tall decorative grass and natural landscape. The time of day was perfect having captured the bright orange and red hues of the sunset shimmering in front of us as gazed in amazement of its beauty. As we moved to a different area of the park we used some lighting to capture some incredibly unique photos with a night view, even capturing some of the misty rain that fell lightly and made for some really great shots.
Our traditional cultural wedding was held in private in February 2020. Mike and Mark immersed themselves among our guests and captured many photos of our ceremony from an intriguing perspective, the photos were natural, raw, unfiltered, and exemplifies a deep appreciation for our family, the experience and the culture. We greatly appreciate the opportunity to have them capture a very private part of our new beginnings together.
Our big day was very busy with a long list of bullet points for the itinerary, Mike, Mark, Tim and Anthony accompanied us the whole time with great enthusiasm. I couldn’t have relied on them anymore than anyone else that day and they were there by our side every step of the way. From the morning time while we prepared for the day, to our first look in the hotel lobby, to our wedding ceremony at the venue, everything was seamless. Our grand entrances, our first dance, our speeches, our cake cutting moment, all had gone exactly as planned.
We can always try to articulate into words exactly how much they have done for us and how much they have made a huge impact on our wedding experience, but it will always be ‘you have to experience it to believe it’. The Light Box is one of the best decisions you will make for your wedding day, for your life celebrations, for your special moments and everything else in between.
Thank you for your professionalism, enthusiasm, and passion for your clients, for your industry and for life's greatest moments.Sent on 21/02/2021

Amazing shots! (Engagement shoot)
My fiancee and I had our engagement shoot with Mark, and the whole experience was amazing! Mark was very warm and friendly during our shoot, helping us to relax and get comfortable in front of the camera. He has a great eye for detail which led to some amazing shots. He is also very accommodating, both in and out of the shoot. We were able to shoot in areas that wanted, and also had the pictures colour edited the way we liked.
I would absolutely recommend to anyone looking for high quality shots.Sent on 19/07/2019

Mark is very professional and efficient, we loved his work from his portfolio and decided to reach out to him as he came highly recommended from a friend of ours.
My boyfriend proposed to me whilst we were on holiday together in Toronto, due to being in town for a short period of time, we were very grateful that Mark was available at short notice and flexible to take our photos for our engagement shots.
As well as giving us easy art direction and making us feel comfortable being photographed, Mark was open to our suggestions and ideas also. We love our photos so much, we used them for our save the date postcards and used them for our wedding website.
Mark has a very good eye for what he does, we trusted him to choose the shoot locations and we were extremely pleased with the results!
Thank you Mark, for being such a valuable asset towards our big day! We cannot thank you enough for your creative input. We wish you all the success this year with more shoots to come.

I'm a fan of the work and the man
I've been following Mark Anthony Diaz on Instagram for a number of years and have been a big fan of his photography. After deciding to get married, I didn't want anyone else to take these once in a lifetime photos.Sent on 30/04/2019
Mark came across as personable and had a calm demeanor which he needed for a big group! He's very pleasant to work with and anyone who sees his photos won't need much convincing on the quality as they truly capture the moment. The missus and I are very happy that Mark shot our wedding.

Professional, Efficient and Beautiful
I am very camera shy and uncomfortable in front of the camera. So I was very concerned about my wedding photos and how they would turn out. Thankfully the photographer with The Light Box (Mark Diaz) totally knew how to pose me, told me and my entourage how to stand, etc. and the results are picture perfect. I wanted candids and a sunny feel for my wedding photos and it was better than I expected. A secure and professional website was provided for me to browse through all the shots and I am now waiting for high-resolution copies for me to print. I can't wait to print these photos. Thank you The Light Box for capturing my special day!Sent on 29/04/2019
