Book him! Mark was everything we wanted and more in a photographer from the engagement shoot, to planning the wedding, all the way to our send off. During our planning session, Mark was prepared to answer all of our questions and guide us to create our perfect day. We were originally unsure whether we wanted to do a first-look moment or not. Honestly, my to-be-husband didn’t even know what a first-look was! But Mark highly suggested doing this as it would be one of the few moments the two of us were not surrounded by family, so we agreed. and WOW. Mark set up our first-look to happen on the dance floor in the reception area with no one in the room expect him and my MOH. This moment ended up being so special for us and Mark captured all of our emotions. He was also so calm and perfectly directive for both of our families before the wedding. We ended up being on a bit of a time crunch for pictures and he quickly came up with a plan B photo schedule for after the ceremony. He put both of us at ease before the ceremony by checking in with us asking ‘are you ok’ and ‘do you have what you need’. He was patient and understanding with some specific needs that our family members had. We cannot express how thankful we were for his calm state during those hectic family moments. Throughout the day we must have gotten comments from about a dozen guests (and no, that number isn’t an exaggeration) about how wonderful our photographer was. In every way he could, Mark went above and beyond his call of duty in order to make our day as perfect as it inevitably was. From helping the groom with his tuxedo, to making sure the bride didn’t lift a finger, he was there at the drop of a hat. Two months later and our guests still talk mention how he and assistant seemed to be everywhere all at once. We are raving about all of these things that have nothing to do with photography because Mark’s pictures speak for themselves. We were so excited (more like giddily impatient) to get our pictures and Mark sure did deliver. Mark is any amazing photographer and an even better human being. If you are looking for an hard working, easy going, and caring photographer, we highly recommend booking Mark to capture your special day!
