A little bit about me...
Hi, I'm Mark, a wedding photographer living in Cornwall. I find it slightly awkward writing about myself and blowing my own trumpet, I'll leave some of that to my lovely wedding couples. I’m just a normal, down to earth guy with a love for documentary photography and telling stories with my cameras which I've loved ever since I was a boy.
I'm now lucky enough to travel all over Cornwall & Devon and occasionally some destination wedding photography, capturing and telling stories on the most special of days working as a wedding photographer. I say work; I never really see it as work as I love what I do.
I grew up in the shire, Worcestershire (I'm a Tolkien fan) and moved to Ponsanooth near Falmouth, Cornwall in 2007. I'm married to my best friend, my amazing wife Jodie and we have two lovely boys, Dylan and Harry.
Away from wedding photography I love music and play the guitar. I cherish time spent with our boys, playing football, building Lego and Airfix, exploring Cornwall and the rest of the World (a bit more of this on my shire to shore blog), mountain biking and snowboarding.
