About

2022 Wedding Awards Winner
Price from £500

Hey, I’m Mark, but everyone calls me Happy Bob!

My motto is that your wedding may only last a few hours, but your wedding photography will perfectly encapsulate your dream big day, so that those loving memories can last forever!

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

I’m a multi award-winning 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.

Photography, video, pre wedding, post wedding, albums, mini albums, high resolution photos

    Mr & Mrs Stockman

    Mark was a pleasure to have as our photographer for our wedding, he made us feel at ease and kept us smiling throughout the day, he was easy to contact and kept in contact throughout the process so that we  knew what was happening, he also gave us a courtesy call to ask if there was any images in particular we wanted to make sure he didn't miss anything on the day, Mark You are such a talented photographer, and we were thrilled with the results of your work. From the beginning, your friendliness and calm manner gave us all the confidence we needed. Somehow, you found a way to capture every important moment on camera. In addition to that, the excellent services you offered were very reasonable, excellent value for money, we have so many images of our day to remember it by and we will not hesitate to recommend you to others. I would like to thank you for doing such a great job for us!

    Fab photographer the perfect person for any occassion

    If there was more stars we would definitely be giving Mark aka ‘Happy Bob’ more. Such a fab photographer he made us laugh throughout our photo shoots. We gave him a list of photos that we wanted over a yr ago, which he bought with him to work through as well as coming up with other unique photo opportunities. Such a lovely guy we couldn’t be happier.

    Fantastic pics and a great guy

    Mark took the pics at our wedding last week. He was absolutely fantastic. Great pictures. He is like a ninja with a camera and turns up where you least expect him and the result is amazing.
    I would highly recommend HB Total Media to anyone.

    The right choice for our big day!

    Mark produced what everyone wants on their wedding day... excellent pictures!
    More than that, he worked in a friendly, professional, timely and unobtrusive manner... all the guests loved him.
    So of course he's got to be expensive you're thinking..... but no, his fees are very modest.... for a top quality end result.
    I wouldn't hesitate to recommend HB Total Media.

    Wedding photos

    When deciding on a photographer for our Wedding their was only one person in mind and that was Mark at HBTotalMedia, thankfully he was available!.
    We knew he would capture the photos how we wanted them.
    From the start, Mark was brilliant, asking all the relative questions regarding our big day, to the final minute where he would see if there was anything else we wanted.
    Having received our photos, we were blown away, even photos that you would miss with a blink of an eye, he captured our day perfectly that we will cherish for a very long time.
    We would definitely 100% recommend for any photo shoot.
    All the best Mitch & Kylie

    Great Job!

    Mark did a great job of covering our wedding at quite short notice and without even meeting up with us as my husband and I were both busy. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for high quality relaxed pictures.

    HB Total Media's reply:

    It was my pleasure our kid. I’m so pleased you like the pictures and I wish you all the happiness’s together in the future.
    In these 'crazy times' it was a great privilege to be a part of your's and Neil's special day.

    Mark was truly an absolute gentleman who takes pride and honour in his work. Absolutely amazing pictures taken!!!

    My self and Nicola noticed Marks reviews and decided to have a conversation. Mark listened to our expectations and discussed the location of the registration with evening venue.
    On the day he was a true professional position all concerned to capture those amazing moments.
    The outcome was amazing! honestly we were amazed with the pictures.
    Thank you Mark, we shall be keeping your number on speed dial 👍

    Brought our wedding to life

    helped bring our wedding photography to life and beautifully captured moments which will stay with us forever.

    We couldn’t have asked for a better wedding photographer. Jo and I really loved the candid shots of some of the family and guests. Mark went the extra mile to make sure we got the photos we wanted plus lots more.

    A really great job at a very affordable price. Highly recommended.
