My husband and I are SO grateful that we chose Mark and Unveiled Wedding Photography to shoot our wedding. From our first meeting with Mark, we knew that not only was he friendly and fun but also that he had a SERIOUS passion for photography an...
d making beautiful images that capture both details and emotion, are photographically pristine, and stand the test of time. He has a TON of experience and seems to have seen everything. He also was flexible in working together with us to provide a custom package. He was straightforward, open, honest, and detailed with his pricing, policies, and procedure. We had done our research and came with a ton of questions... all of which he was ready and able to answer, and it was so nice to feel like there were no catches or hidden loop holes!
Our engagement shoot was fantastic. Neither of us had taken professional photos before so we weren't sure what to do, whether to pose or be natural, or how to pose. Mark coached us along and put us at ease with some humor. Mark was even great enough when we asked him a week or so prior to the shoot to help us recreate a photo posing us similar to a photo of my husbands grandparents. When we got our photos back, we were overjoyed at how BEAUTIFUL and pristine they were! The place we took our photos at the beach was packed, but Mark somehow knew how to angle things in such a way that made it look like we were at a private beach!
On our wedding day, we were even further convinced that we made a fantastic choice in photographers. Our wedding was in December so it had some schedule challenges due to limited sunlight, but Mark worked with us to create a timeline that fit in everything we needed and was efficient but not rushed. Well, the wedding day came along and it was the worst storm most of California had seen in at least 5 years so we were nervous whether things would still run on time and our vendors would get stuck in traffic. Mark and his assistant photographer arrived at the getting ready locations perfectly on time, and helped the day move along according to schedule, despite the weather challenges. And thankfully, the rain dried up right before our ceremony! When the ceremony went 30 minutes longer than expected, Mark and his wife Stacy got through all our family poses incredibly efficiently and we headed off to take the rest of the photos with the remaining sunlight and even made up the time we were behind by being efficient but not rushed before heading off to the reception. The toasts at the reception also ran late, which put our schedule behind, and again Mark came through despite having to adjust plans last minute.
Needless to say, we felt like there was a lot thrown at us (and subsequently our vendors) during our wedding day... some thing expected and some unexpected. Despite all these challenges, things were so stress free for us the entire day due to Mark and his team and our incredible wedding coordinator helping to keep things on schedule and on track. During the ceremony and reception, we hardly even noticed Mark and his team were there... and we have absolutely beautiful images of all sorts (poses, shots of the details of the wedding, candids) that captured every bit of the day beautifully!
Mark and his team come at a higher price than many of the newer, less experienced wedding photographers that have popped up recently, but you absolutely get what you pay for. If photography is important to you, we HIGHLY recommend going with Unveiled!
