Hi there! I'm a wedding photographer from Durham, North Carolina. 

I'm the type of photographer who enjoys experiencing life with my clients. Whether it's sitting down over coffee or beer and discussing your big day or hiking up a mountain to document your surprise wedding proposal.  I'm open minded, flexible and always down for a "love adventure"! 

I have a Master’s of Fine Arts in Educational Media Production.  I value time, thoughtfulness and community.

Mark makes the photoshoot experience super fun but also very relaxed- I felt like I was able to simply be myself and let him take care of the rest. So happy that we got to work with this awesome photographer! Mark’s incredible artistry and considerable talent speaks for itself. Highly recommended!

Mark is an amazing photographer! He recently did a photoshoot for my husband and I who share a musical career together. He’s so easy to work with and has great ideas no matter what you need him to photograph for.
