Hi I'm Mark Shaw, a professional wedding photographer based in Cornwall (near Falmouth) and photograph weddings not only in Cornwall but right across the South West. My photography style is very relaxed and unobtrusive which lets you and your guests simply enjoy your wedding day rather than it being a photoshoot. I'll tell the story from behind the lens with a collection of photographs in the same natural/candid style you'll see in my gallery here:

My job as a documentary wedding photographer is to create a beautiful collection of images to bring your wedding back to life so every time you look at the photos, it all comes flooding back - the emotions, the special moments, the atmosphere, humour, fun and love that you shared with each other and your friends and families. 

I know choosing a wedding photographer is a pretty daunting process with hundreds of photographers in Cornwall alone; so how do you find the one that's right for you? I say go with your heart, find the one that connects with you, the one that you know is able to tell your wedding story best.  

I’m drawn to the happy stuff, the laughter and interactions, the colour and the fun; creatively photographing the rollercoaster of emotions and moments on wedding days without any staging or posing, capturing it all as it happens. 

If the idea of having a chilled out, helpful, friendly wedding photographer quietly working unobtrusively and creatively capturing every moment of your wedding day appeals then I'd love to hear from you, contact me today to check my availability and discuss further.

Mark, thank you for capturing our wedding so beautifully. From the very beginning we felt you listened to what was important to us and put us at our ease. On the day your understated manner and subtle approach struck the perfect unobtrusive balance leaving us to enjoy our celebration. Our confidence was born out by a selection of beautiful images capturing so much more than the events of the day. Somehow you caught the mood magically. So for listening, blending into the background and your artistry in transferring the day to images your have our greatest thanks and an unreserved recommendation.
