BEYOND WHAT YOU EXPECT

“With Mark, you are getting more than a photographer, you are getting a true gentleman in every sense of the word. He goes above and beyond what anyone would expect of a photographer. He genuinely cares about his clients and enjoys being part of the celebrations. We have no hesitation recommending Mark for your big event and like our guests, yours will be commenting on his contribution to the day for weeks to come.”

ABSOLUTE DELIGHT

It was an absolute delight having Mark photograph our wedding day. Not only did he capture our special moments beautifully, but he did it in such a way that made both us and our guests feel incredibly comfortable.

The before and after service that Mark offers is staggering, and as a bride and groom, we were made to feel special from our initial meeting with him up until this day 7 months after our wedding. We can’t wait for future celebrations so we can have Mark join us once again!

MEMORY BOX

First of all forming the base of all my album photography collections is the USB Memory Box. The Memory Box contains your personalised USB flash drive which holds all your edited digital print ready and screen resolution files. I also add a back-up disc of all those images to store in a safe place to ensure your memories remain secure.

 

Available to purchase as an optional extra with the Digital & York Collection

Your images come with a personal usage licence which grants you permission to share images with family and friends and in addition printing and publishing on social media. To get your Memory Box started and consequently to have something tactile to hold and thumb through I include a selection of 6×4 professionally printed images. Finally, a step by step guide outlines the process for selecting images for your amazing handcrafted album, accessing your online gallery and details how to share this  amongst family and friends. All presented in a beautiful keep sake box.

included in the Cambridge Collection.

ONLINE GALLERY

The images made available to you via digital download or saved to your USB flash drive will also be used to create your online password protected gallery. This makes image selection easier when it comes to selecting those for your album. It also allows you to share your gallery with family and friends. The unique password that protects your gallery  ensures that your images remain safe and not open to be viewed publicly. From your gallery, you can ‘favourite’ images, share images direct to social media platforms and order prints from the gallery online shop. Your gallery will remain live for up to six months after your wedding day.

SUPERB

My now husband wasn’t keen regarding photography for the day, he is very awkward with his photo being taken. Our very first meeting with Mark was fab, he came to our home so we were in our comfort zone and he talked through all of our options. There was no hard sell just honest conversation. As soon as Mark left us that day we knew we had found our photographer. Mark did an amazing job in the run-up and on the day. We had great fun creating memories of our big day with him.

He was reasonably priced which suited our budget, he offered the photo booth that we wanted, and he was superb personally from day one.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is reportage photography?

The art of reportage photography is capturing an event in a documentary style. Rather than staging a series of photographs, the aim is to document an event as it unfolds. It’s about being able to see and anticipate what is about to happen. I will set out to capture those stolen intimate moments, the playful innocence of young children or the obvious pride on the faces of the parents. It’s those moments that portray the true feeling of the day that often go unseen, or are overlooked with more conventional forms of photography.

Do you take formal group shots?

My work is mainly reportage, and I will spend a large proportion of the day capturing natural images of you, your families and guests. I appreciate the need for some ‘formal’ shots and I am more than happy to orchestrate a selection of group shots as many people want a ‘roll call’ of their loved ones to remember. I would recommend keeping this to a limited number so that the flow of the day is uninhibited. It is important to achieve the right balance and ensuring that enough time is dedicated to you, the newly weds. We can discuss your requirements during our initial consultation meeting and agree the mix of formal and informal shots you would like to have in your collection.

I normally dislike having my photo taken - can you help?

It is very common to be nervous in front of the camera and I am often told by my clients that they don’t enjoy having their picture taken. Everyone is photogenic. if you feel relaxed a good photo is simply a reflection of your unique personality. Confide in me what you don’t like about yourself and I’ll work around it – we can do clever things to make you look your best, choosing the right angles and backgrounds. I’ll help you to feel relaxed which is the key to a natural photo. You might like to consider a pre-wedding or engagement shoot. It can help you get used to the camera and the experience of being photographed so it doesn’t feel unusual on your wedding day. Take a look at the pre-wedding page on this website to find out more.

Are you insured?

Absolutely. I have full personal indemnity insurance and public liability.

Which areas do you cover?

I am based in North Cambridgeshire, and am often called upon to venues across London, Norfolk, Suffolk, Northamptonshire, Bedfordshire and surrounding areas. However if required, I am happy to travel across the UK and overseas. My wedding package includes travel within 60 miles of Cambridge, I may to add a surcharge for locations outside this area – always clarified with you beforehand.

Do you have a photo booth that you can set up for the evening at the venue?

I do offer a photo booth service, and these are often great fun at weddings. I will set up a studio backdrop, lighting and some props to create a pop-up photo booth at your reception venue and take images of your guests for about two to three hours from just after the first dance. Your guests can download a screen resolution file free of charge within three days of your wedding day. You of course will receive all of the images in screen and print resolution along with your wedding images.

£300.00 (if booked with the wedding package).

How do I book you?

All the information I need from you at the start of our conversation is the date and the venue. Contact me in the first instance using the contact me page of this website to check my availability or email me directly at mark@marknortcliffe.co.uk – if your wedding venue is a long distance away I will factor in the time required to travel there in my plans too. If my calendar is free I will provisionally save the date for you.

We will then arrange the first consultation to discuss your wedding day in more detail. There’ll be no hard sell – I encourage all my brides and grooms to discuss this fully between themselves before going ahead. If you decide that you’d like to proceed I will give you a contract to sign and you’ll pay a £400 non-refundable booking fee by bank transfer into my account. The booking will then be confirmed and I’ll start to plan your day.

See the pricing tab of the wedding page of this website for further information on costs.
