If I knew now what I didn't know BEFORE our wedding, we would not have set the date unless we knew that Mark Wayne was available to photograph it. I kid you not. Do not set your wedding date unless you know Mark Wayne's available--it's just that simple. In the end, the... Read More photographs will be one of the most important decisions you make in archiving the day. To say that our pictures came out great, would be an understatement. What Mark is exceptional at, is figuring out who you are as a couple and really capturing the collective and individual personalities of you both. More so, he captures the emotion, fun and the very spirit of the day--not just of (and for) us, but of our entire guest list as well. There is no way we would be able to cherish the memory of the day without him. How does he do it? I'll tell you. He has a winning personality and he seems to really love what he does. There's no way the pictures would turn out as well as they did, if he did not. One last thing. Are you one if those people that thinks you never have a good picture taken of you? Not with Mark. Some of the best pictures ever taken of us occurred with Mark Wayne. In fact of everyone at the wedding and reception looks great. By the way--Spend the extra money for the Photo Booth. It's classy and well worth it--the guests LOVE it. An easy way for people have to have a great time celebrating your wedding (and something that will make your reception stand-out from the all the others). Come on, what are you waiting for? Call him--you will NOT be disappointed or regret it!!!!

From the moment I met Mark I knew that he was exactly who we wanted to shoot our wedding. I felt completely comfortable immediately. He has a great sense of humor, makes the photography fun, and made me feel comfortable to ask for exactly what I wanted. Not only was he extremely...

The video was peiced together so perfectly we're able to relive our special day whenever we want. I feel that our pictures are natural and relaxed because we felt so comfortable with Mark. I would absolutely recommmend him to others. I think something special about Mark is his wife is his videographer. Watching the two of them love each other so easily made the passion behind what he does even more special. Everyone told me the one thing not to skim on is photography, because you'll never get the memories back. We are so happy that we chose Mark to capture our moments!
