Since his debut at age 16, Mark has photographed over 500 weddings in Colorado, Arizona, and frequently traveling to both exotic and small towns world wide, doing what what he loves more than anything; capturing real, natural, magical moments through still imagery.
Taking a quiet approach, Mark’s aims to blend in with the crowd, showing up most often in a full suit and tie just like your guests, and photographing all of the moments, big and small, from start to finish. Going practically un-noticed, yet always available when you need him is his mission at every wedding.
What Mark appreciates most about photography is the way that he can capture a flighting moment that can be enjoyed forever. “My first camera didn’t even work. I was a toddler and my father had a cheap, broken camera, but he stuffed cartoons that he had made of me and my sisters into the back of the camera. He’d snap a photo and pull out a cartoon. I really thought it was magic. That’s when I fell in love with photography. And even today, I feel like photography is magical as ever”.
Mark’s biggest goal at every wedding is simple: make it the best of his career. He approaches each wedding, whether it’s a small town wedding in the cornfields of Iowa to an exotic destination with the same enthusiasm; to make it the best ever.
Mark is proudly preferred at almost 20 venues worldwide, including the Arizona Biltmore; Devil’s Thumb Ranch, Colorado; and Castello di Modanella in Italy.
