Highly recommended for great quality of work at a reasonable price
In short: I was a bride on a budget so I was searching for someone who could provide a great product at a reasonable price and Mark definitely delivered. Profession, great communication and great end result. I selected Mark out of 7 photographers I researched and spoke to.Sent on 06/19/2019
(Long version) Here are the reasons I selected him:
1. He has options to meet your needs (we went with 2 photographers and a lighting assistant) - 3 of the other photographers I spoke to worked alone and I was afraid some of the moments wouldn't be captured.
2. He only makes you pay for the things you want. A couple of the photographers included a fancy photo album - I didn't want that and didn't want to pay extra money for something I didn't need.
3. He provides the perfect amount of communication. He responded to emails in very timely manner and sent emails when it was time for me to start thinking about certain aspects of the wedding.
4. He asks for examples of photos you like so he can get a sense of the style you are going for and follows through with recreating those photos.
5. I gave him a list of family members I wanted in various photos. He brought the list and was able to wrangle over 30 people into multiple pictures quickly.
6. Him and his team were ninja's during the ceremony. I HATE when photographers make their presence known during a ceremony. I don't know how Mark and the team got the pictures they did because they were completely out of site
7. The finished product is amazing, he not only captured great staged photos but got some amazing candid photos as well
There are a million other reasons why you should go with Life Reflecting Images... just look at all of the other positive reviews he has gotten on the wedding websites.
Life Reflecting Images Photography's reply:Hi Michelle, Thank you for taking the time to give us such a great recommendation! It was such a pleasure working with you both. Your family list was such a great way to layout the portraits that I've incorporated that spreadsheet in all my future weddings.

Hire him now, he's incredible!
Mark was absolutely incredible for my wedding. Every single picture (and there were so many!) were beautiful and captured our day perfectly. He was so kind and understanding, given that we had a lot of last-minute changes that were out of our control. He was patient and fun, always professional, and made me feel completely at home and just went with the flow of whatever we threw at him. I can't rave enough about him – if you need a photographer for anything, he's your man! His team was stellar as well, although as the bride I worked mostly with Mark. The pictures are gorgeous, and I'm so grateful that we got to work with him for our special day.Sent on 08/16/2019

The best "invisible team" you can find
Mark and his team are second to none. What a professional, organized, thorough, "invisible" team. What do I mean by "invisible"? Well, nothing annoys me at a wedding as much as when photographers are constantly badgering people to stop what they're doing and freeze in a pose. I want candids! We told Mark that was our #1 priority and he took it to heart...I literally don't remember seeing his team the entire reception! Yet the next day when my friends were posting their own iPhone snapshots on Facebook, I could see Mark's team hiding all over the place capturing candid photos. VERY MUCH appreciated by us. Also, his photo / video / lighting folks were very pleasant and easy to work with during the "getting dressed" photos and "after the wedding" photos. We felt like Hollywood stars walking around Georgetown and it was the time of our lives. Thank you for creating such a special day for my bride and I, and we can't wait to see the final prints and video reel!Sent on 01/02/2019
