Hi! I’m Marlon. Excited to see you here, wandering around this little corner of Bark. I’m a professional photographer, who loves the exciting and dynamic world of weddings, and family portraits.
Based in Vancouver, Canada. I travel for one quarter of the year, always on the road, and exploring new locations. I very much adore natural light, and my goal is to bring that mature elegance and grace, with a note of contemporary. I come with an extensive knowledge of photography picked up over the years, I’ll make sure your photo session feel like a breeze. I love experimenting with light, shadows & composition.
My clients are very important to me, and I truly believe that there's no two people alike, each has their own story that deserves a tailored approach - your experience matters as much as the photos that you will get at the end.

Marlon is an incredible photographer, and one that truly cares for his clients. We chose Marlon for our Chinese Tea Ceremony and Wedding dinner.
He was amazing in showing our family members in the best of light. The most delightful and emotional of moments were also captured - ones that will forever stay with us, and be available at our discretion.
I would recommend Marlon's services to any for ceremonies, personal shoots and more. If you want important moments captured with the utmost of care - you can trust Marlon and team. More...
Marlon and his team were amazing. With so many photographers out there, we chose to hire his team because of his style of photography and quick response to our inquiry. He was also the only photographer kind enough to follow up with us when we were on the fence in deciding which company to hire. Marlon’s customer service and attention to detail were spot on. He made note of our requests and also had great suggestions of his own. Working with him was effortless and his work ethic was fantastic. We would highly recommend the portrait booth service. The pictures turned out beautifully and our guests were happy to receive their photos that evening. Thank you Marlon and team for your spectacular service. We would be happy to refer you to our family and friends. More...
MLCastles Studios was a wonderful choice for our Wedding Day. Marlon and his wife were a great team to work with. In our selection list, we always came back to MLCastles Studio every time we considered who to choose.
Eventually our short list comprised of 2 others including MLCastles. We contacted each of them to discuss what they can offer and of course pricing. The obvious choice was Marlon.
Affordability, Practicality and Quality was what we were looking for and we found this with MLCastles Studio and even more. Marlon and his Wife made it very easy for us during our Wedding Day which really helped us to just mind ourselves and not have to oversee anything regarding the photos. Not only was he professional with his work ethic but also went above and beyond his service which we are eternally grateful for.
Needless to say our experience with MLCastles Studio was fantastic. We would recommend them to anyone for consideration for weddings or other photography. Thank you Marlon for making our Wedding one we can cherish and remember through these outstanding photos.

It was great working with Marlon and we love our engagement and wedding photos. We originally went with Marlon because he was quick with replies and his prices were reasonable compared others. He worked with us on what we wanted in our photos and now we have treasured engagement photos with our puppy. Would totally recommend MLCastles for any of my friends and family. More...

Where to start? We would put 10 stars out of 5 if it were possible, and it would be no exaggeration. Skill, professionalism, punctuality, thoroughness, expertise, reliability.
All accurate and yet insufficient to describe MLCastles Studio, and the way in which they made our special day even more special.
My wife and I were searching for a photographer for our upcoming wedding, we put our request through a website called "bark", and MLCastles Studio was so quick to respond. We knew pretty quickly He was our guy, as he was so accommodating to our indecision and inexperience with a wedding shoot! Not to mention persistently following up with us, and going above and beyond with us in so many ways; coming out to the island multiple times to consult us, do an engagement shoot in the middle of nowhere, chauffeur us about to remote locations on his own gas, zoom meeting after zoom meeting, nothing but hard honest work from MLCastles, and skill to boot:
our photos were UNREAL! ..Surreal would maybe be a more accurate descriptor. We were shocked, but not surprised at the finished product. Shocked because of the moments he captured in the way he captured them (absolutely stunning, magazine quality). Not surprised because the same attention to detail and passion he brought during the shoot and all the days leading up to it, we anticipated nothing less than the same in the actual shots and editing. Everyone that has seen them have been every bit as impressed by them as we are!
In summation: MLCastles has to be the premier choice when it comes to any photography needs.. if our experience is worth anything to the reader of this review, rest assured that you can entrust MLCastles to do the absolute best job, with absolutely zero headaches.
This guy is talented, motivated, and equipped to accommodate any needs you may have (we had many, and needed alot of help!) cant say enough, hence the long review, but such incredible service merits such thorough praise!
Way to go Marlon!! Thank you so much for all your hard work☺️

Marlon and his wife were absolutely amazing to work with. Marlon is really organized. He had two meets with us prior to the wedding to go over everything. On the day of the wedding, they showed up 2 hours earlier than what I booked them for. As we were running behind on the day of the wedding. They left 30 minutes after they were scheduled until. The only reason they left only 30 minutes later, is because we told them it was okay to leave. They were really professional, detail oriented, and super easy to work with. Our wedding party also loved them. I am so exited to see how much pictures turned out! More...

Marlon was amazing to work with! Our family had a a great time working with him and capturing memories of a life time.

Marlon was wonderful to work with. He asked the right questions to find out what I wanted for our family pictures and made it happen. He was patient with our kids which says a lot, since sitting for pictures for about an hour isn't easy for the little ones. I just absolutely love how our pictures came out. More...
Marlon is awesome and easy to work with. He has a covid friendly planning/scheduling process with an online portal that logs all communication and info/decisions between client and photographer. If you prefer over the phone you may also contact him or he will. Very flexible and can easily make changes to plan/schedule. He will work with you to meet your needs and wants. He can also provide good tips/suggestions such as props (he can also provide) or locations. Great edits and affordable prints. Also I like how his watermarks are not right in the middle of the image on his digital/social media res samples. More...
Marlon was very patient with my young boys and they enjoyed being around him. He was fun with our family and it made things easier for us to take photos!
He was on time and professional. Our experience was very pleasant and we ended up with beautiful sunset Christmas photos! We look forward in having him take our photos again in the near future.
