Amazing photographer! Once you book with Mark for your wedding, you will not be disappointed!! We booked Mark for both our engagement and wedding photography, and were absolutely THRILLED with the results from both! We've gotten so many compliments from our friends and family on... Read More our wedding pictures; my dad even kept remarking what a talented photographer Mark was while looking through our album! Mark is so easy to work with and understood exactly what kind of pictures we wanted, which made everything that much easier on our big day. I honestly cannot say enough good things about Mark, he truly is the best out there!!

We were so pleased with Mark and the excellent work he did shooting our July 4th wedding. We interviewed a few other photographers as we were planning the wedding but felt none of them were willing to think outside their style to what was important to us. Mark was helpful as we... Read More navigated the day and decided what we wanted. He listened to what was important to us and captured our day in a way that was meaningful. The photos are beautiful and exactly what we wanted: lots of candid photos, very natural and unassuming. Yet at the same time he captured amazing shots of the scenery and details. He was laid back the day of and unobtrusive. It was natural to work with him and have him around for such intimate and emotional moments throughout the day. We got our album as well and love it. We would highly recommend Mark!

Mark did an incredible job capturing our wedding. We were so happy with everything he did, and every single photo came back perfect. We had the opportunity to do an engagement session with him, and it was an excellent chance to get to know one another and how we worked... Read More together. It was great to see how the photos came back and to get a feel for his style, which was exactly what we were hoping for! Leading up to the wedding he was incredibly responsive and got back to us right away with any questions (much more responsive than I was to emails at that point!). He worked with us to make sure we had every detail in place and that we were all on the same page. We had a meeting a couple days before the wedding, which was really helpful in knowing that we were ready! Day of, Mark was a huge help in my getting ready process since he knew how everything should go and where he should be at pretty much every moment. He was able to capture both myself and my husband as we were getting ready in different areas, and got great photos of us with our wedding parties. He also encouraged me to start putting my dress on earlier than what I was told, which turned out to be a great call since it took forever! There are some things you don’t know, having never had a wedding before, that Mark knows all about since he’s done this a million times! That was really helpful and encouraging to have a presence who knew what was going on. He captured everything about the getting ready that I was hoping for, including a last-minute ring photo request and lots of gorgeous dress photos. During the ceremony I honestly did not even notice he was there, yet when we got the photos back he had captured everything! He really knows which shots you’ll want to see later, such as shots of the audience, shots of the whole wedding party standing with the officiant, and plenty of just the two of us. He also really captured the feel of the venue, during the ceremony and throughout the day! The reception photos were also perfect. He captured all the little details and decorations I had put in that I didn’t even really notice myself! The day was such a blur for me so it was incredibly nice to be able to look back later and see the centerpieces, the favors, etc. All the big moments such as toasts, first dance, cake cutting, and parent dances he captured perfectly. As well as the rest of the time dancing! In addition, we had two sessions of couple photos that came out absolutely stunning. One was a shot that I’d known I wanted since the day we booked the venue, under a tree that was strung with a ton of lights. Day of, a section of the lights went out, and Mark even photoshopped that picture so that you can’t tell the lights are out, and gave us that copy in addition to the original. I was so grateful for that!! After the wedding, the photos came back to us in an online gallery, and we had the option to download any or all of them, and to share with family and friends! The printed copies came back looking amazing. We had an online meeting to design our photo book, although Mark did all the work on that! We loved all the design choices he made. We just got our photo book back and it looks incredible! It’s such a perfect way to display our favorite photos and to be able to relive the story of our wedding day through pictures. Overall I was incredibly impressed with every aspect of Mark’s work and would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a wedding photographer!

Amazing photographer! Mark is calm, organized, down to earth, and knows his stuff! We felt at ease with Mark from the moment we met him, and trusted his expertise.

Mark goes above and beyond being your “photographer”, he’s a partner to help your moment be its best. He not only has a creative eye but an incredibly positive attitude.

Where to even begin! My husband and I got married last October in Estes Park. Months prior to our wedding, we met Mark at a local coffee shop to discuss his style as a photographer and view some of his portfolios. He was upfront about his preferred photography style. He stated... Read More that he was present when needed to be, but behind the scenes most of time. He appreciated the beauty and honesty of candid photography, and felt that it truly captured the sentiments of the day. My husband and I felt the same, so we elected to have Mark as our photographer. He was helpful, communicative, organized, and thorough in the months leading to our wedding. He graciously answered the array of questions we had and instilled a level of confidence in us that he had it covered. The day of our wedding was magical; Mark captured the essence of our joy, excitement, and anxiousness perfectly. He was able to get through family photos efficiently yet never wavered from making us feel that every moment was special. His photos throughout the evening were candid and touching. Mark’s photography abilities and vision are profound, and his work speaks for itself. We loved that our wedding photo portfolio had an equal amount, if not more, of candid and ‘un-orchestrated’ photos as formal photos. That said, our formal photos were absolutely stunning. Mark was diligent and communicative in the weeks following and returned our photos quickly. My husband and I are so grateful for Mark’s sincerity, kind and thoughtful nature, and of course our gorgeous photos. We plan to recommend him to all our family and friends!
