Wow wow wow

I do not have enough great things to say about Mark! He was phenomenal. Because of the pandemic, we cancelled our big wedding, and eloped at the Santa Cruz county clerk. Later, we had a gorgeous sunset photo session at Panther Beach at his suggestion. It was truly magical. He captured so many great moments, had great ideas, and also captured our own ideas for photos. Mark is very professional and knowledgeable. Also, I have to say that the country clerk's office is a very ugly venue and not at all where we planned to marry. However, you would not know that from his photos! He makes this place look magical and really captured the spark in our ceremony. That takes true skill and a great eye for photography. Do yourself a favour and hire Mark for your wedding! We are so happy to have included him in our most special day.

Truly professional and beautiful work!

Photographer Mark Stover/ Expressive Photographics was a referral to me from my hair stylist Cecilia at Musa Salon in Soquel, CA. I can't say enough about how friendly and professional he is, and so easy to work with!!! The site coordinator at my venue really dropped the ball making sure things were done as the bride had's an understatement to say that the professionalism and attention to detail by Mark Stover and my stylist Cecilia were what kept me calm, and made it a very special day. So many sweet moments were captured in his photographs. Thank you Mark!

My husband and I got married on June 23, 2016, and we had our engagement session on May 26, 2015. We used Mark for both and could not be happier. Our engagement session was fun and creative and Mark did a really great job at making us comfortable in front of the camera. Mark was quick on the turn around for the engagement photos and we even had one put on a canvas to show off at our wedding. On our wedding day Mark was more than on time, he showed up an hour before so that he could look around the venue because he had never shot there before. He was very quick to get though all the photos we wanted before the ceremony. During the ceremony he was everywhere, he got so many pictures from different angles I have no idea how he did it. He was like that the whole day. He got every picture I wanted and I rarely noticed he was there. That really showed his experience. My husband and I love the photos and would recommend him to anyone!
