I find it bit strange to write about myself, even if it’s only a few words – as most photographers I prefer my work to do the talking for me. My name is Mark, and I’m just a normal, down to earth guy with a camera. I’m married to my beautiful and amazing wife, who’s my biggest inspiration, my biggest critic and my biggest supporter. She makes me walk with my head in the clouds, but at the same time makes sure that I stand firmly on the ground.
I love what I’m doing. Being a wedding photographer must be the most incredible and awarding profession in the world. Everyone loves a wedding, it’s such a special day full of amazing emotions. I bet the last wedding you went to was like this as well – laughs, tears of joy, family and friends from all over the world seeing each other for the first time in years. Just beautiful. So, imagine having the privilege to photograph days like this every week through with camera. It is the best job in the world.
It’s really important to me, that my photographs are the most natural record of the day. I capture everything as it is, focusing on the emotions, the mood, the connection between people. I even want the portraits to be the part of the story, so I encourage every couple to be themselves and act exactly as they feel, and let me worry about the amazing landscape in the background. In my opinion, only photos like these can bring back the best memories in 10,20 or 30 years.
I love to travel and I’ve been lucky enough to photograph people and place all over the world, and for that I will be forever grateful. My work has been published in various blogs and magazines including Junebug Weddings, Rock My Wedding, Fly Away Bride, Polka Dot Bride, OMG We’re Getting Married to name a few.
