Welcome to Mark Shaw Photography, I'm an award-winning wedding photographer in Cornwall with a relaxed, candid style of wedding photography; capturing real emotions and moments as they happen without any posing; creatively telling couples wedding day stories in Cornwall from behind the lens.   

Available for wedding photography in Cornwall, Devon, UK and destinations worldwide, I offer two wedding photography packages. If you’re looking for a modern documentary style wedding photographer, professional editing, and want your wedding photos to bring back the smile on your face every time you look at them, I’m your man! 

I’m based in Falmouth, Cornwall, South West England where I photograph 90% of my weddings but I do work worldwide, so if you decided to get married in some lovely destination abroad, but don’t want to take the risk with the local photographer, just let me know – I’d love to travel with you. I will capture every detail of your beautiful day with my vision, passion and the love for what I do.

I know from experience that choosing a wedding photographer, especially here in Cornwall, can be a pretty daunting process with hundreds of wedding photographers  to choose from; so how do you find the one that's right for you? I say go with your heart, find one that connects with you and who can best tell your wedding day story. 

If you book me as your wedding photographer, I'd like to think you’ve booked a friend to photograph your wedding, someone who you can completely trust and have 100% confidence in.

I approach weddings with a very unposed, documentary storytelling style, capturing and creating a beautiful collection of images that each time you look at your wedding photos, it all comes flooding back. 

I’m drawn to happy people and weddings are full of them; laughter and interactions, colour and the fun; creatively photographing the rollercoaster of moments on wedding days without any staging or posing, capturing it all as it happens, leaving everyone to just be themselves and enjoy the special day and I capture it all as it happens.

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!
