I found Mark on Instagram and immediately fell in love with his pictures. There is an amazing light to them and I liked how he composes his pictures.
We met him for a trial shoot in the woods near Glasgow and the chemistry between us was right from the beginning. He really made us feel at ease in front of the camera. He is very easy going and has a good sense of humour. For us it was clear straight away that we would have loved him to shoot our wedding.
After a couple of emails between him and my husband in which they talked about the location and possible picture opportunities on the way from the registry in 23 Montrose Street in Glasgow to The Bothy in the West End.
Our big day was finally here.
Mark met me at the hotel I got ready at. He took pictures of my dress, flowers and the ring. He also photographed me outside the hotel. He had great ideas on how to incorporate the buildings and streets. Again, he made me feel comfortable while taking pictures.
He then went to the registry to take pictures of the arriving guests, best man and husband. I didn't notice him at all during the ceremony and was really happy about the lovely pictures he took of us and our guests. We walked from the registry to Buchanan Street station to the subway with a couple of stops in between. The weather was on our side and the Glaswegians also were on their best behaviour :D. The ride on the subway went smooth and Mark took the opportunity of taking some unusual pictures in the subway stations.
Finally we arrived at The Bothy in the West End where we had our wedding reception. Mark took different group shots of us, best man, bride's maid and families. Although he made us pose here and there, we felt really comfortable and at ease with him. After shooting the reception room and our toasts, Mark said good bye.
I would definitely choose him again for shooting any special occasion. Thank you for capturing the most important and best day of our lives!
