    Genuine People, Perfect Shots!

    We worked with Mark and Mike for our engagement shoot and wedding day. To this day, their photography skills continue to amaze us for taking the most amazing and beautiful shots we could ever ask for. Both Mark and Mike are so genuine, friendly and thoughtful - working with them was so easy and they made us feel very comfortable! Mark and Mike are both so personable, and it is reflected through the communication, photos and attention to detail throughout the whole process. We are so happy to have chosen them on our wedding day, and we can't wait to continue to use them for future special moments in our lives! 100% would recommend!

    Million Dollar Pictures

    The pictures, as they say, are worth a thousand words. The ones that the Lightbox team took of us are worth a million great things. They were the easiest to work with and the most flexible photographers we've ever worked with. On a limited budget, Mark and EJ were able to display our parents' 50th Golden Anniversary renewal of vow as if we splurged. The team definitely captured the happiness of my parents and family...and we can re-live them through the pictures. He was very organized, which helped us to be on time (and even early) on our itinerary for the day. They even helped in the teardown of the equipment at the reception. Truly, they were a blessing for our event. They will not disappoint!

    Book them now!

    The light box came highly recommended to me as they also did two of my best friends wedding and engagement photos. And I was not disappointed! They were so professional and they took beautiful photos at my wedding. It happened to rain on my wedding day but Mark and his team improvised our planned photos for the day and they still managed to capture amazing photos. They were easy going, communicates well and took the time to get to know my vision for the wedding and they 100% delivered. Would recommend them to everyone!

    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.

    Wedding Photographer

    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.

    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!

    They captured our day PERFECTLY

    The photography aspect of our wedding was probably the least stressful part of the planning and execution! They were always so easy to talk to, had positive attitudes, understood our vision and knew the shots we wanted to capture our day. They were punctual, professional and flexible which helped me feel confident that the special moments were being captured. I would definitely recommend them!

    Thoughtful, attentive, genuine, and all around wonderful :)

    We loved how Mark and his team captured our wedding (& engagement) in the most candid and natural way so we can enjoy these memories as they were. We're not big on fancy, staged photos so we really appreciate how they understood the style we were looking for. We especially love how they caught the goofy side even when we didn't think the cameras were around. I'd recommend them to all my friends & family for any occasion :)
