Great photography team and amazing photos!

Life Reflecting Images went above and beyond to deliver an incredible wedding album. Mark and his team were attentive, easy going, yet dedicated to delivering an outstanding product despite a rainy Saturday in Loudoun County. 

The day began with Mark taking pictures of the bride and bridesmaid getting ready. He went around our house taking detail pictures, and capturing special moments. He thought of things to take pictures of that we would have never guessed. Mark did a wonderful job capturing the joy and excitement of the morning and nailed the Bride’s dress reveal to the bridesmaids and the father of the bride. The pictures were plentiful and really, really good! Meanwhile, the second photographer was hard at work getting set up at the church for the ceremony. Easily putting the groom and the groomsmen at ease the second photographer captures some really cool details of the church, the groom, and the groom's parents. Despite the rain, he was able to work quite the magic with lighting to get some great shots prior to the ceremony. 

During the ceremony, the photographers were hardly noticed skillfully making their rounds throughout the church getting details and different angles as well as very special parts of the mass and ceremony. We are very thankful that care was taken during this special part of our day. There were special images that we were hoping that Mark would take and he and his team delivered such as the choir, musicians, the celebrant, readers, and of course friends and family throughout the pews. The photography team was very respectful during the Catholic Mass and our celebrant remarked that this was the best photography team he has ever seen!

Post ceremony was time for the family pictures which unfortunately, went long and did not capture all of the groupings on the groom's side due to time constraints. This was not really Mark’s fault at all but we recommend reducing the number of groupings so that both sides can have equal opportunities for pictures and no “special requests” to subtract time allotted to the other side for portraits. 

Next up was the couple portraits along with the wedding party at the venue. It was raining pretty steadily at this point, but Mark and his team delivered yet again! All the pictures were outstanding and we are so happy how they all turned out. They truly made us look so good and we are so pleased with our portrait shots. After this Mark and his team captured some fun moments at the cocktail hour before proceeding to the reception barn. The pictures continue to be numerous and of really high quality. We can tell much time and effort was put in post wedding to make sure they all looked great and edited nicely. Thank you Life Reflecting Images!

We are grateful for Mark and his team for being one of our best vendors on our wedding day that was not without challenges! We 100% recommend Life Reflecting Images for your wedding photography team. Mark was such a great vendor to work with and his true enthusiasm was evident during the wedding day. He was even kind enough to stay for much longer than he was supposed to in order to capture some amazing shots of the party and our private last dance. Thank you Mark!

We carefully researched and interviewed many photographers for our wedding and we easily chose Mark McConnell as our wedding photographer, and we couldn't be more thrilled with the exceptional experience he provided. From the moment we met him, Mark exuded professionalism, organization, creativity, and a genuine passion for his craft.
Mark's guidance throughout the entire process was invaluable. He took the time to understand our vision and personal style, ensuring that every shot reflected our unique love story. His ability to capture candid moments of pure joy and emotion is truly remarkable.
What I thought set Mark apart is his exceptional talent for making us feel comfortable in front of the camera. His friendly demeanor, gentle direction, and expert guidance with poses made us feel at ease throughout the entire day. We never felt awkward or staged, allowing our love to shine through in every photograph.
The attention to detail that he demonstrated was also amazing. He has keen eye for composition and lighting resulted in breathtakingly beautiful photographs that we will cherish for a lifetime.
Not only did Mark deliver stunning images, but he also went above and beyond to ensure our overall experience was exceptional.
We highly recommend Mark McConnell to anyone in search of a wedding photographer!!
Thank you, Mark, for your incredible talent and remarkable dedication. You have provided us with priceless memories that will be treasured forever. We are forever grateful for your exceptional work and the beautiful way in which you captured our love story.

Mark and his team are truly amazing!

Mark and his team are truly amazing! After looking at dozens of wedding photographers, something about Mark's work stood out to me. We set up a zoom call and after meeting him, we knew he was the right choice. He is so organized and was able to show us what our day would look like, and even helped plan out some of the timeline right there with us while mentioning or asking us about several things we had not even considered and probably would not have. On the day of, he was early, and got all of my bridesmaids at ease and in the mood for pictures. He is great at capturing candids in the moment and helping direct us for amazing artistic photos. We received over 1200 photos in the end that all looked terrific. We will look to work with Mark again when it's time to grow the family! Mark and his team are truly amazing!
