A high percentage of my work comes via recommendations for both my wedding photography, portraits, event photography, babies and child portraits. I have a fun and relaxed approach to my photography which puts people at ease.
The full day package includes pictures during the Brides and bridal party hair and make up. My wife has commented that Mark arrived early and was extremely friendly with everyone, helping everyone feel relaxed and forget that he was there. Whilst taking both agreed and ad-hoc pictures, Mark helped the bridal party with breakfast and drinks, giving them a well needed hand during the pressure. Nice touch I think.
Mark then met the Groom party at the Priory Barn and brought a lot of banter to the boys and our children. He seemed to learn everyone's name very quickly, which helped throughout the ceremony and post ceremony pictures; helping him to call out people rather than just bark orders. The best way to describe the service is that it was very natural and you'd be forgiven for thinking Mark was there as a guest (apart from the big camera...) fitting in very comfortably, having a laugh and a joke with everyone and getting some really natural pictures as a result.
We thought that a really nice touch was that during the Wedding breakfast Mark created a picture show from what he had taken so far, and played this on a flat screen by our Cake table so that guests could see pictures of the day. This is really nice for evening guests too who hadn't been there earlier.
Overall, we were delighted with Marks service and the good value of the cost for the full day. Mark generated an album of over 550 pictures, with at least 2 - 3 options of the same shot. Some might say you wouldn't want that many and would want the photographer to narrow it down but we really enjoyed going through the pictures and creating our own 'likes' down to about 200 pictures of a mixture of the set / standard wedding shots and very ad-hoc caught on camera pictures.
The great thing to note is that we were issued with ALL of the pictures and they were freely able to be sent on to friends and family at no cost. Again, no tough sell for a set number of images and added cost for extras, no push for hard copies or albums. Just a very nice and easy service for capturing our wedding day from start to finish.
Our wedding day was extremely busy, and we were delighted to not have to worry about Mark, what he was doing or what he needed. We had confidence in him getting on with it. We are delighted to recommend Mark and TSI Photography for anyone's wedding or special celebration and wish him all the best in the future.

We were getting Married in Mexico and had decided to choose a photographer to come along with us instead of using the hotels. As soon as we met Mark to discuss the wedding he made it an easy choice, made us feel comfortable and knew exactly what we wanted. We had a couple of shoots with the kids before the wedding which we were so delighted with!
Communication with Mark was easy and he would always respond if you hounded him with messages like myself 😂....Anyway wedding came and we all flew out to Mexico, our whole family got on with Mark and his wife and everything just felt so easy and comfortable. Wedding day was incredible, he had everything under control and so organised...we are so over the moon with the amazing photos Mark captured.
Mark also took photos of our party back home and yet again really captured the fun that was going on throughout the party. Even though it's all over now Mark is still doing an amazing job for us creating albums for our parents. Im afraid you'll never get rid of us and our whole family Mark, you really did do an amazing job and we cannot thank you enough!!
We definitely would recommend you to everyone we know (although I don't think we need to haha you've met them all now and they have all compliments your work!!) Thank you thank you!!! Lots of love Mr & Mrs Henderson-Thynne!
Mark did photos for my anniversary party and I couldn’t be happier with them! He really captured the essence of the party and the people there. He was professional on the night, got the photos to me so quickly and i couldn’t recommend him more. Thanks Mark!

Amazing photographer! Lovely guy who takes his time and really cares about the shoot! Love the photos from both of our daughters shoots and we will definitely use Mark for all of our photography needs in the future! He’s brilliant. 💜 Thanks again x Lauren Coles
Had all the grandchildren for my parents The photos Mark took were amazing. He very quickly put my 3 daughters at ease (2 teenagers and a shy 9 yr old). Lovely mix of individual and group photos and casual and more formal looking shots that were edited and arrived very promptly. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend and will be looking to book again for some studio shots once lockdown is over.

Mark was our photographer at our wedding in September 2019. It was all so relaxed and Mark is so lovely and friendly it made it so much easier for us and our guests for the photos! The turnaround to receiving the link for the photos was incredibly quick! We even had them before jetting off on honeymoon! Thank you Mark, we would highly recommend you to anyone 😊Posted by Stacy Fortune
Mark did a cake smash for our twins 1st birthday and he was absolutely brilliant! He was amazing with the boys. We are so happy with the pictures, they are beautiful! Highly recommended! Can’t wait to book again for future photos! Posted by Aimee Louise
I have used Mark a few times now & each time has been great. He’s professional, patient, great with kids & gives direction to help you get ‘the’ shots. He’s also very reasonably priced & will give you the best of all the photos that he has - always sending them with a quick turnaround (which is great when you’re far too excited to wait to receive them!) I always recommend him to family & friends without hesitation.

So glad we came for some Christmas photos and so glad we have found this lovely man to use in the future too. So reasonably priced and great with children also! Super friendly and professional and some amazing photos. We didn't feel rushed and got some fab photos of both our daughters and some amazing family shots! Hard to accomplish with a 5 month old baby in tow 😂 x Photos to cherish forever. Thank you 💖 we will be back! x
