About

On Hitched.co.uk since 2022

Last update: November 2023

Wedding and Event photography is at the centre of my work tho I do have a studio and I'm just as happy working with families and individuals creating portfoilo images for agencies as well as private commissions.

My work leans towards natural light and capturing candid moments throughout the day. Staged shots have their place and are important and I can work with natural light as well as studio location lights that I always bring to events. lighting is everything and thinking quickly and being confident and relaxed brings out the best in everyone. Even those that hate having their picture taken!

I'm a qualified drone pilot so can bring video and stills into the mix if it's safe to fly. I shoot with Canon R5 cameras that can shoot completly silently if needed.

Our experience with Mark of Mark Pickthall Studio Ltd from beginning to end was perfect.

From the outset, Mark showed real passion for photography and was genuinely excited about the location we had for our wedding. He took the time to understand us prior to our wedding with relaxed meetings virtually and in person at our venue. His style is relaxed and fun which was just what we were looking for. Mark took some truly stunning shots, capturing every element of the day, enabling us to relive every special moment. He seamlessly blended into the crowed, with us looking back at many of the pictures unaware these had even been taken. He was there from our arrival early in the morning, right up to the last dance and beyond. His communication was exceptional, even keeping us informed of every new drop of fantastic pictures as we were enjoying our honeymoon. We are so blessed to have found Mark who has perfectly captured the most amazing memories of our special day. Thank you x

Charlie and Joanne Cowan - wedding - North Cadbury Court

I have known Mark over 10 years and have seen him working, at so many weddings at North Cadbury Court. Thus when it came to booking a photographer for my own wedding, it was an easy descision to book Mark as I knew I was in safe hands. Mark was highly professional, discrete, went above and beyond the call of duty. He delivered in so many ways and the quality of photos he took was outstanding. He really helped us and advised us during the wedding rehearsal and on the big day was always around discreetly to take the most amazing photos. I can highly recommend him for any one looking for a highly experienced wedding photographer.

The best we could have asked for!

Mark did our wedding day photos and engagement photos shoot photos - needless to say that he gave us evehthing we wanted and more and captured our wedding day on the most beautiful and magical way. Mark made us both feel relaxed and at ease when doing both our engagement photos and on our wedding day. We also have young son who we wanted in the photos and mark worked so well with him being patient and kind and really capturing his playful nature and spirit. Would highly recommend to anyone!

Professional but relaxed

Mark is supremely relaxed, which is what we wanted for our wedding. Rather than a set of formal photos, we really just wanted a record of the day, and Mark followed this to the letter. Great to work with and a thoroughly good fun chap!

Fantastic experience all round!

Mark is an exceptional photographer, he went above and beyond and made us both feel extremely comfortable behind the camera. He captured our wedding day perfectly and I have already recommended him to a friend and would certainly look to do so again to others in the future.

Completely personalised experience

Mark kept fantastic communication leading up to the day and arrived well before me on the day. He had scouted the best positions for the most beautiful photos and we received them whilst we were still on our honeymoon! The whole experience was incredible and he captured all the incredible memories we will cherish forever

Incredible photographer!

Mark is a super talented photographer and a lovely person too! He produced simply EPIC photos of our special day, made us feel so at ease in the build up and was such a calming presence on the day. His photos are iconic and we couldn't recommend him more.
