Frequently Asked Questions:
What does the wedding package include?
My standard package for a full day wedding includes - 2 photographers to cover the day in its entirety - 400 (minimum) images in digital format. - All images to be supplied in both colour and black & white in a digital format. - Digital files that come in both High resolution ready for printing and low resolution for web use. - A license for personal/non-commercial use for perpetuity. - A secure online gallery for your friends and family to view all the images, - A personalised presentation case and USB key to store your images.
How far in advance should I contact you?
The sooner the better is best as the more popular wedding dates do get booked up 12- 18 months in advance.
Do you cover more than one wedding a day?
Never and I only shoot one wedding per weekend to make sure I am fully focused on my clients.
Are you able to travel?
Yes. I mainly shoot in London and the surrounding counties, but I am happy to travel nationally and internationally.
What is the charge for travelling?
Travel inside the M25 is free and outside the M25 I charge £0.50 per mile.
What style of photos do you take?
Mainly documentary style with a mix of creative relaxed portraiture.
What kind of technology do you use?
High end professional digital cameras.
Do you offer any tool to display the photos online?
Every client has their own private and secure online gallery for a minimum of 12 months, where they are able to view all their images and order prints if wish.
What''s the delivery time for photographic report?
Usually about 2 weeks for delivery, but sometimes up to 4 weeks at peak season.
Do you send all the photos taken?
No. The client gets an edited selection of only the best images. Copies of the other images which didn't make the cut, are available at an extra cost, which covers my time in processing the files.
Do you work alone or do you have a team of professionals?
I usually work with another photographer on most weddings and I now have a great team of very good, professional photographers, who I love working with, which I can choose from. Though I am happy to work alone, if the clients budget doesn't stretch to 2 or if the wedding is quite small that it doesn't require 2 photographers.
In case of unforeseen circumstances, do you have a replacement photographer?
Yes, I have a good selection of excellent photographers I can rely on, if the worst happens. So far (touch wood), I have not let any clients down.

We decided on an 'elopement' wedding as we wanted something very private and for the day to be about us.Sent on 21/11/2018
Mark captured our whole day from start to finish. He made us both feel at ease and relaxed and he was able to capture us in such a natural way. Every time we look at our pictures we can see just how happy we were on the day and the love and tenderness between us.
The photographs really are perfect, he managed to capture our day from start to finish in such a magical way. Mark is a great photographer and we would highly recommend him.

Had us from hello!
From the first meeting, we knew we were in good hands with Mark. He guided us every step of the way before the big day asking the all important questions (most of which we had not even considered) and made sure he got a real feel for who we were and the type of vibe we wanted. On the big day, Mark’s presence was warm, supportive and subtle! And, yet he still managed to capture every special moment. The photos have turned out absolutely beautiful and we couldn’t be happier!Sent on 02/10/2018
