About

Hi, I'm a Wedding and Portrait photographer based between Leeds and York. I work in a relaxed and unobtrusive manner as I like to keep my work as natural as possible. For portrait work, I'm equally at home working in the studio and have a studio location that I regularly use in Castleford near leeds.

I cannot recommend Mark highly enough following our daughter's wedding. Mark is a friendly easy going chap who put everyone at their ease and managed in consequence to capture so many great images. Almost as importantly was his ability to blend into the background and not try to take over the wedding. We now have a super collection of images and a beautiful Wedding Album to treasure. Great guy and great service. More...

Me and my husband searched over the internet for months and went to loads of wedding fairs to try find the perfect photographer for our special day! Then we found mark online, looking at his reviews I thought wow he is highly spoke of, so thought We would take a further look at his work to see if it was the kind of photography we were after, as soon as we saw his portfolio we knew that he was definetley the photographer for us. So we arranged a meeting to discuss our wedding, what we were after and to just get a general feel as to what mark was about and what can I say, he is a lovely guy, so down to earth, funny and put us at ease straight away! . So of course we booked him for our big day, along with a Pre wedding shoot. The pre wedding shoot was fantastic, Mark got some brilliant natural photos of me, my husband and our two children! Everyone has commented on how lovely and natural they look! Which is what we were after.Then Just two weeks ago he shot our wedding, we have not seen any of the pics yet, but we have every confidence in Mark and we’re really excited to see the moments he captured on our big day! I will definetley be recommending Mark to my friends and family, for all there photography needs! More...

Mark I have to say, you were a pleasure to have around on Steph and Eliotts wedding day. From the crack of dawn to late at night. We had a sneak peak at the final photos this weekend and I have to say you didn't disappoint. You got some great shots, all very natural. Well done for making our family day one that will last forever. I can't recommend your skills and more than anything what a nice guy you are. Thanks again. Tracey and Jayne X X More...

We couldn’t have asked for a better wedding photographer than Mark! He spoke to us in the run up to the wedding about the different shots we would like on the day and then was sure to capture them. He was there from when we started getting ready to after people were on the dance floor, meaning that he captured all aspects of the day. He was also really friendly and struck up a great rapport with our guests, accommodating any requests. There are a great mix of staged shots and natural unposed pictures, capturing all the events and many facial expressions of the day! The final images are wonderful and we are so pleased. The turnaround time was really quick too. We would definitely recommend Mark as your wedding photographer! More...

We haven’t actually received our photos yet (as they were only taken today!) However I can’t sing Mark’s praises enough. We had an outdoor family portrait session - dog included - and Mark was so so wonderful from start to finish. Having our photos taken with Mark genuinely felt like a nice day out with a very talented friend. I can’t wait to see the finished photos and will absolutely pester Mark for further sessions in the future! Thank you again from Dan, Nev and Eden. X More...

We chose Mark after seeing him in action at a friend’s wedding back in 2016 and we just loved how well he blended in with rest of the guests at the wedding and captured such beautiful natural photographs.

Mark did a pre-wedding photo shoot with us last year where we got engaged. It was lovely to have some photos in our special place but the best thing was we felt like we’d made a new friend that day as Mark made us feel so comfortable in his company and in front of the camera.

Mark captured our wedding day this June and had our photographs ready for us within 3 weeks as promised. He has really managed to capture the whole essence of the day from start to finish. On the day itself Mark was a dream, so laid back and just going with the flow of the day and snapping away. He was great with all of our guests, still taking requests for photographs even when he was trying to leave at around 11pm!

We cannot thank him enough for our beautiful photographs and his excellent company on our amazing day.

Mark is literally THE BEST!!! From the moment we met him I knew we had made the right decision! He takes absolutely brilliant photos and documented the whole day in a sensitive and accurate way. His documentary style is excellent and he certainly understands how to work with light! We cannot recommend him enough! From our engagement shoot to the wedding he did a fantastic job and made everyone feel incredibly comfortable on the day. He works very hard to deliver a unique and tailored experience, and that really shows in the work he produces. A true art - thank you Mark :) xxx More...

Mark is, quite simply, excellent at what he does. The photos he captured of our wedding day were just perfect; natural and laughter-filled moments, everybody full of joy and raw emotion - which truly reflects the mood of the day. He has a real understanding of light and how things will transfer onto the lens, and if you couple this with how he is as a person; an engaging, thoughtful and warm individual, you have a formidable package. We would 100% recommend Mark for any photography needs you may have! Thank you Mark, you are just spot on. Love, Kat and Ben x More...

Mark is amazing at what he does. We absolutely LOVE our beautiful wedding photos, they're so natural, they genuinely capture the feel of the day and all of the special little moments we had. His use of natural light is stunning, I'm so glad that we decided to have him photograph our big day. He is such a lovely guy, so easy to talk to and work with. A lot of our guests commented on how great he was to have around and how at ease they felt. I would definitely recommend him! Thanks Mark! :) More...

Why isn't there an option to put more than 5?!
Mark was an incredible photographer from start to finish. Having just looked at our photos from our wedding 2 weeks ago I am absolutely blown away by Mark's eye for detail and his ability to get a good photo of literally anyone.
A massive thank-you for being such an incredible part of our big day, you're welcome back into the family any time if you dare!!

Mark photographed our wedding in October last year at Ringwood Hall as well as doing an engagement shoot in York city centre a couple of months before. My husband and I weren’t keen on a camera in our faces all day, but Mark made us and our guests feel totally at ease. We now have an amazing set of pictures that capture the true emotion of the day and couldn’t be happier! 100% recommend!! More...

We are so pleased we chose Mark to photograph our wedding. He was amazing on the day; so many people commented on his friendliness and professionalism. The photographs came back really quickly loaded onto a USB in a lovely wooden box and we are really happy with how they turned out. Mark is an excellent photographer and we would highly recommend him to anyone! More...

We cannot thank Mark enough for capturing our day so perfectly. From the moment he arrived at my B&B he put me and everyone at ease. He caught every personality, character and moment immaculately. I cannot stop looking at the photos and have memories to treasure for ever. The photos captured tell the story of our day perfectly.

Thank you Mark

Fantastic photographer, he was on the ball all day and from what I saw previews of, the photos looked great. At the end of the night, I wanted to a picture with the bridge and groom and mark had packed his stuff away. He could have understandably refused, but he got it back out and took the pictures for us. He was awesome, can't fault him More...

Mark shot our wedding in March and our pre-wedding shoot last year. Each time Mark put us at ease and made us feel comfortable even though we aren't comfortable in front of the camera. Mark was the only photographer who wanted to meet us before he let us book him to make sure he could provide the right service that we wanted. All our guests commented on how amazing the photos are. We got the photos quickly before we went on honeymoon which was lovely and they arrived in a beautiful presentation box. We couldn't have asked for anyone better. Thank you so much for capturing the special memories of our day. Jade & Ryan x More...

I cannot recommend Mark highly enough. He is an absolute marvel and I cannot thank him enough for our incredible wedding photos. From our first meeting we knew we had chosen the right photographer. We already knew he was a brilliant photographer from his website, and in person he has a friendly and relaxed nature which puts you instantly at ease.On our wedding day it rained all day and night, and I was really worried about the impact that this would have on our photos. That worry was completely unfounded. Mark captured the happy, vibrant and laid back nature of our day perfectly. His reportage style means our photos are alive with funny faces and silly moments, rather than just lots of posed group shots. That man is a ninja, you didn’t know he was there until you saw the flash!!He braved the rain with us on Otley Chevin and got some incredible shots that we will treasure forever…they actually made me glad we had rain. Thanks for being part of our day Mark, you are a star!! More...

Everyone always says this line, but we actually can't recommend Mark enough. From the first meeting at our home, we just felt so at ease with him and this is coming from two awkward turtles who hate having their photo taken! The engagement shoot which was included in the package (which we were both quite nervous about for the awkward turtle reason above!), was fabulous. It was a chance for Mark to get to know what it takes to get us relaxed in front of the camera, and meant we were used to being natural in front of him too. The photos were gorgeous and just got us both super excited for the big day. Mark was an absolute diamond on the day. He was with us first thing in the morning, right through to the last moment at night when the light was too low to see anything at all! For someone so incredibly tall, he managed to slip himself between guests seamlessly and snapped some of the most beautiful, natural pictures at moments no one even knew he was present for. The photos are absolutely stunning and perfectly capture our character and the relaxed vibe of the day. So I'll repeat what I said at the beginning of this (very lengthy) review: we can't recommend him enough. He is a joy to have around and an incredibly talented man to boot. Your wedding photos are what your grandchildren will pour over in years to come - you want them to be perfect and with Mark they will be. Book him and have the most stunning reminder of your beautiful day for the rest of your lives. More...
