Capturing memories
Pristine quality


On since 2020

Last update: June 2024

Every wedding is full of beautiful, natural, fleeting moments, so book a documentary photographer who will capture every second, taking artistic candid images which will allow you to relive your ‘Big Day’, again and again and again.

After all, what price do you put on memories? Dresses get put away, cakes get eaten and confetti gets swept up, but when you have fantastic pictures these lovely memories are yours to keep forever

This is why it’s essential that they are are the best that money can buy.

And that’s where I come in

Hi, I’m Mark, but everyone calls me Happy Bob! I’m a multi award-winning, two decade-plus experienced, passionate storyteller, photographer and videographer, based in Peterborough, UK – although I do travel all over the UK and to destinations if needed – who will go to the ends of the earth to ensure your precious moments are documented, ensuring you’ll be able to replay your story over and over.

’My candid style and natural story-telling approach allows your day to unravel in real time, unobtrusively with a relaxing flow.

Services Offered

Having been a professional photographer for over 20-years. I like to capture those little ‘never-to-be-repeated‘ moments in time that allow you to keep forever. I do this by using natural light, so I become much less obtrusive, as I don’t direct or dictate. This allows me to portray the day as it naturally unfolds.
Other than the odd, pre-planned traditional group photo, I spend the majority of the day photographing real and meaningful moments between family and friends.

Weddings are full of fleeting moments and so my style wholly allows me to remain in the ‘heart of the action’ without impacting on the day’s atmosphere.

Master of Candid

Mark was absolutely brilliant, he took a lot of time and care to tailor the photos as we wanted. Looking through them all the candid relaxed photos give us great memories of the day.

Amazing 5 star service

Mark was amazing during the whole wedding planning process until the first dance! He was informative and made everyone feel comfortable, even us the bride and groom when our registrar arrived at our venue late. All of our guests were nothing but complimentary about Mark. They all said he was funny and was not awkward at all as some photographers may be. We received our photos very quickly and our bespoke usb box was a lovely gesture which we didn't expect it to come in. We would highly recommend Mark to anyone looking for a funny, chatty professional who takes amazing photos and provides 5 star service!

Perfect wedding photographer

Mark was amazing from our engagement shoot to perfectly capturing our day, looking through our photos has been a pleasure, the candid shots we asked for were amazing.
I would thoroughly recommend Mark! He also recommended our videographer and offered great advice during the planning of our wedding.

Amazing all round!!

We are absolutely blown away by the photos of our wedding from Mark at HB Total Media! We picked Mark because his style aligned with what we wanted, and he absolutely delivered!! We didn’t meet Mark until the day, but all communication with him was spot on - any queries or concerns were answered really quickly, we had regular updates and check-ins either over email or phone call in the run-up to the big day and lots of reassurance! On the day, Mark was so lovely and it was like we’d known him forever! He managed to wrangle us all into looking presentable and he captured stunning photos of everyone, and all those natural moments too which is what we were really keen on getting alongside the more posed shots. I cannot recommend Mark enough if you want an event photographer that is approachable, professional, a good laugh and able to catch all the special moments. Thank you Mark!

Mr Gary Hudson

Mark is an exceptional photographer and fantastic value for money. Why pay twice as much for half the quality.
I'm sure Mark has an invisibility cloak because when we got our pictures back we said we didn't even see him take half of these.
Mark is extremely friendly and pleasant. We couldn't recommend him highly enough.

Wedding photography

Mark was amazing, from the first phone call to the day he focused on what my now husband and I wanted. He made us feel relaxed, calm, in control and listened to. On the day he went with the flow and any sudden changes were no issue at all. It made everything so chill. Our photos were back within a week and I can no express how incredible they were, they were just perfect! We had our puppy as a flower girl and his way with her meant we got the most perfect photos. He captured the day perfectly! I would recommend Mark over and over again! 5***** service! Plus an incredible price for the service a photos!! Do not hesitate to book, you will not regret! Thank you for everything Mark!

Funny and friendly, with fabulous photos!

Absolutely amazing from start to finish. Communication leading up to the wedding was great & we were so excited to work with Mark on the day. Everything on the day was perfect, Mark is professional but makes you feel totally comfortable even if you hate being photographed (like my other half) and he had us laughing the whole time. We got our photos back really quickly and the USB a few days after, beautifully presented and a lovely keepsake. We can’t recommend Mark enough, thank you for being such a positive part of our day!!

Cannot thank Mark enough for snapping our big day for us! He came in, got on with it and made the day so much more relaxed! We had a good laugh and chat with him and he dealt amazingly with my crazy family plus trying to photograph 3 dogs! We fell in love with all our photos and are trying so hard to chose our favourite but they're all wonderful! He captured the day perfectly.

Best Photographer!

From the minute we spoke to Mark on the phone to book him, he had us in stitches laughing and immediately put us both at ease. He talked us through everything we needed to do and was always there in case we had questions. On the morning of the wedding, Mark was on time and again, instantly put myself and bridesmaids at ease. He was calm, funny and talked us through everything. I cannot put into words the absolutely beautiful photos that Mark took on the day, he made everyone feel special and captured our day so perfectly. I would not hesitate to recommend Mark or use him again for any other function we hold. Wonderful guy through and through, thank you so much Mark.

Fab photos

We came across Mark after researching wedding photographers in the Peterborough area, I liked his blog & lots of photos on the website, we were also attracted by the flexibility of packages & pricing offered, we called him last minute after being let down by someone else,I’m happy to say it was a great experience from consultation to the big day, mark is a cool happy guy, made us feel totally at ease & guided us through poses & the results are fantastic, we’re really happy with the photos, just wish we could have afforded to bring him to the Caribbean with us too, we highly recommend him to all

Best service you can get!

Mark joined us in the morning when we were getting ready and stayed till the end. He took photos all through and caught great moments.
He was on time, polite, friendly, funny.
Mark did all we asked for in a professional manner.
We highly recommend HB Total Media as we think nobody could have it done better.
Many thanks for staying with us on our big day.

Made our day even more special

Mark was beyond fantastic and supportive during our whole planning process! He was amazing on the day and solved every problem that the elements could through at him and our pictures are just beautiful. Well worth the money!

10/10 would recommend!

What can I say? What an amazing job Mark did. Such a lovely person to work with, all smiles! His photo style is candid, natural and smiley photos that really capture everyone's emotions. Of course he does capture the novelty family photos and pictures of your wedding items (shoes, dress makeup etc...). We had a bit of a hiccup with the venue and where myself and the bridesmaids were going to get ready, I called Mark in a panic a week or two before the wedding worried he wouldn't be able to accommodate the address change and time change and he reassured me right away that he would accommodate the changes and not to worry to just send him the details closer to the day. All of our guests have commented on how wonderful the photos are. I would recommend his service to anyone! Love kels and matt xxx
