Hi I'm Mark Shaw, a professional wedding photographer from Falmouth in Cornwall and photograph weddings not only in Cornwall but right across the South West and beyond. You could call my style of wedding photography 'documentary style' or 'reportage style', but for me it's all about storytelling and creating a beautiful collection of photographs 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 mood/atmosphere, laughter, love and everything in-between that you shared with each other and your friends and families. 

I’m drawn to the happy stuff, the laughter and interactions, the colour and the fun; creatively photographing the rollercoaster of moments on wedding days without any staging or posing, capturing it all as it happens, unobtrusively and unposed; leaving you to get down to the business of enjoying your wedding day rather than it being like a photoshoot. There will be images that'll make you laugh, shed a tear, and if I’ve done my job properly it will feel like you’re reliving your special day every time you look through your photos.

I know from experience that choosing a wedding photographer is a pretty daunting process with hundreds of wedding photographers in Cornwall alone to choose from; 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 good at just being my relaxed friendly self which makes people comfortable allowing me to capture truly natural informal moments that best tell the story of your wedding day in all its glory. 

If the idea of having a relaxed friendly wedding photographer quietly working unobtrusively/unposed and artistically capturing every moment of your wedding day appeals to you then I'd love to hear from you. Contact me today to check my availability and chat about your wedding details and requirements.

If you’re looking for a discreet, artistic and creative photographer, with the ability to capture emotional and hilarious moments, then look no further!! Getting the photos back revealed so many amazing moments and were simply a joy to go through..again and again. We had a large venue so coverage was a concern however Mark managed it perfectly, getting a great balance of locations as well as capturing specific requested moments. Marks a lovely guy and it was a pleasure having him there on the day to help us capture the day! Cheers Mark
