"We became interested in hiring Mark as our wedding photographer after seeing some of his photos on Instagram where his use of light is brilliant. He was quick to respond to our inquiry via e-mail, and he was keen to set up a meeting with us in person shortly thereafter.
It was very important to us to be comfortable around our wedding photographer and Mark voiced how important that is to him with his clients. It was immediately evident that Mark is approachable and easy-going. We discussed our vision for our wedding day and the types of photos which were important to us. Mark gave us some great ideas for photos and provided guidance in how to eliminate stress on our special day.
Mark promptly provided the details for his wedding packages and when we agreed to hire him he sent through the contract the following day.
We really appreciated how Mark got in touch with us two weeks prior to our wedding to discuss final details. On our wedding day, he arrived on time and pretty much made himself invisible while we got ready at our respective locations. Our wedding day happened to be the second hottest day of 2018 and Mark easily adapted, changing some of our planned photo locations due to the heat. It was great to have a photographer that went with the flow, and remained calm as it kept us at ease.
Our favourite part of Mark's service was when he took just the two of us aside a couple of times after dinner (at sunset and at dark) to get some intimate photos.
Mark provided us with a handful of sneak peak photos just a week after our wedding and we received the remainder of our album the following month.
Mark is incredibly talented, professional, and easy to work with, and we would highly recommend his service to anyone!" -Kyla November 3/18
“We hired Mark for our August 2018 wedding. We are in awe of how well he captured the moments of our special day. Mark is super easy to work worth and puts you at ease on what can be nerve wracking day. He is professional, approachable and responsive. We would highly recommend Mark to other couples!” -Stu September 16/18
“Right from the start, Mark was such a pleasure to work with. It was so wonderful to have a photographer that exuded such a high degree of professionalism and easy going nature to make us feel at ease. Both our engagement shoot and wedding photos turned out unbelievable. We were blown away by Mark's ability to create a mix of lifestyle and dramatic photos that perfectly suited what we were looking for in a photographer. All of our guests had high praises for how the photos turned out.
We would not hesitate to recommend his services to future families and couples searching for a photographer - you will not be disappointed!” -Clinton & Nicole August 4/18
”My parents were celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary in July 2018. My Mom’s one wish was to spend the day with her family. She really wanted new family pictures so we called Mark as we had heard that he did great work. He suggested we meet at the Legislative buildings in Winnipeg and do a variety of pictures outdoors. We were extremely pleased with the experience we had. There was 19 of us and Mark handled the challenge well. Mark was friendly, funny and professional. He made everyone feel at ease and relaxed. He went above and beyond to take a variety of photos as required in order to please the individual families and especially my Mom. The pictures turned out beautifully...bright and clear.
We highly recommend his work to anyone looking for a professional photographer who has fun doing what he does.” —Tamara July 22/18
“Mark is a ton of energy & Fun!! He ensured the day of shooting was organized, creative and exciting. Thank you Mark for the quick turnaround of the photos - they look incredible!” —Zayla July 12/18
“Mark was fantastic to work with. This was me and my boyfriends first time being in front of the camera together. We were both nervous and shy but that quickly went away with Mark being funny and giving really good direction. I think that was key. The gentle reminders of what to do and what not to do really helped. I would highly recommend you connect with Mark for your photography needs. He's super flexible, easy going and he let's you see the photos while shooting!! It was a nice little touch that made us more excited and more comfortable!” -Desiree & Shelby June 27/18
“Having our engagement and wedding photos taken by Mark was fantastic! It was such an easy process. He made sure he did everything he could to help us feel comfortable and wanted to really capture the style and feeling we wanted to have that fit who we are. Mark is incredibly professional and charismatic. We’re very happy with our whole photography experience.” -Liz & Marcel March 28/18
“Hey Mark! Hope you’ve been having a fantastic time during your adventures abroad. I’ve seen lots of the videos and pictures and it’s been looking unreal. I know Karley’s been doing most of the communicating with you, but I wanted to express my huge thanks to you as well. All of the pictures are fantastic, and have been blowing everyone away. I don’t have enough square footage in my house to print out all the ones I want haha. We’ve been hearing so many horror stories of people having their photographers disappearing on them, and you’ve been nothing but a gentleman, scholar and connoisseur of fine photography throughout the whole process. Thanks again and Merry Christmas!” -Josh December 25/17
“Oh my goodness Mark!! They look amazing! I am so thrilled with how it all worked out and thank you so much for getting them done by Christmas :) You are wonderful!!” -Karley December 18/17
“Hey Mark! I hope you've been well! I wanted to reach out again to say thank you for our photos. Whenever I'm sad, I look at them and they make me so happy.” -Rachel October 12/17
“Our family photoshoot was a huge success. Arriving about an hour or so before sunset, I was initially skeptical that managing a large group of my family members would be an impossible, if not, unenjoyable task. However, Mark made us feel very relaxed. He was easy going and friendly in demeanour. Mark gently guided kids, parents and grandparents alike to assume natural, candid poses and to interact with the beautiful landscape we found ourselves amongst. It genuinely felt like a walk in the park. He made us feel so at ease. The kids loved it!! The adults found it relaxing, quite enjoyable and before we knew it, we had come to the end of our walk in the park. We held hands as one large family of 12 before the setting sun for one last silhouette photo. The photobook Mark produced was amazing; breathtaking, in fact. He really knows how to capture everyone's best sides and smiles. Thanks Mark.” -Brian September 5/17
“From our first interactions with Mark, we were very excited to work with him. He made our engagement session very comfortable and fun. Mark perfectly captured our personalities in the photos and we are beyond excited for him to shoot our upcoming wedding.” -K&J September 4/17
“Mark is a creative, talented and simply outstanding photographer who drives to make any photo session special by capturing your real life moments and personalities. He made sure to snap images of us in special locations that would produce quality images and was extremely knowledgable of photography and his equipment used to capture the perfect shots.” -Chantel & Stephane August 28/17
“Mark is an amazing photographer!! We had a blast with him during our engagement session as well as on our wedding day. There were a few specific photos we wanted on our wedding day and when we mentioned our ideas, he was enthusiastic and willing to do what was suggested. We couldn't be happier with our experiences with him. Our photos are so incredibly beautiful! We definitely recommend his services to anyone looking for an easy going, fun, energetic and professional photographer.” -Jenn & Adam August 27/17
“Prompt, efficient and very friendly. Mark has refreshing photo ideas which likely came from his travel photographer background. His eye for beautiful photos is unique. We showed our developed photos to our guests at our 50th anniversary celebration and several people asked for our photographer's name and website.” Marge & Larry -August 11/17
“I don't know how you got those shots, Mark. You captured amazing moments from that day and your creativity and work of different lighting blew our minds. My dad couldn't stop saying how talented you are. High praises to you.” -Lorie & Dustin June 22/17
