Highly Recommend Life Reflecting Images!
Mark and his team at Life Reflecting Images were amazing on our wedding day! Mark especially went above and beyond. He met with my husband a few weeks before our wedding day to plan out where we would be taking our couple portraits. My husband and I were down to try any of Mark's suggestion and his suggestions did not disappoint! Mark and his team also made sure to capture a little bit of everything that day! From getting ready, to wedding party pictures, to the ceremony, to cocktail hour and the reception and everything in between. I can't say it enough how pleased we are with our wedding photographs.Sent on 10/17/2019
Also, Life Reflecting Images is a one stop shop! They offer packages of just photography or photography and videography. Our package included Mark as our lead photographer, a second photographer, a lighting assistant and a videographer. Videography was important to us because we had some family members not able to attend due to age and health reasons. Mark worked with us ahead of time to make sure his videographer captured all the special moments we wanted.

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

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.

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

A joy to work with!
Mark and his team at Life Reflecting Images, were a joy to work with! He was quick in responding to any questions we had and in delivering our photos - both our engagement shoot and our wedding! His prices are VERY reasonable for the area. From our first initial meeting all the way up to after our wedding, Mark has been very professional and made us feel so comfortable and confident with him as our photographer!Sent on 11/03/2018

Mark and his team were phenomenal on my wedding day. From communication leading up to and throughout the day of, his team went above and beyond and far exceeded my expectations. Mark's communication was outstanding and he happily answered any questions that I had. He even stayed an extra hour at no cost to me on the day of my wedding showing his true dedication and going above and beyond for his clients. The pictures came out AMAZING. His photography expertise shone through each photo. He got every angle, every moment, and captured every emotion throughout the happiest day of my life. He truly exceeded my every expectation. From the moment we met, I knew he would do an incredible job, and he never let me down one bit. He was flexible and understanding and was present but never intruding. I would highly recommend him for professional photography and wedding photography services. You will NOT regret it!Sent on 09/17/2018

Mark and his team are sooo terrific!! My fiancé (Husband:) and I feel so fortunate to have found him. We met Mark last year in his studio, and immediately felt we had found the right person that we would feel comfortable around. He was very easy to work with and made several adjustments to his packages that made sense to our needs. He was very accommodating and had some great insight for our planning. He communicated leading up to our date and really removed any anxiety from us with his clear planning. I've been a bridesmaid before and Mark is so much more organized and prepared than other photographers I've experienced. On the day of, he was early, and all of my wedding party was impressed with how hard working he is, and his thoughtfulness. Our pictures are amazing!! So much better than we could even anticipate, we are just so thankful. You can't go wrong with choosing Mark.Sent on 10/12/2018
Thank you Mark!!

Mark was beyond fantastic! I planned my wedding in 6 months and Mark took all of my worries away when it came to the photography. His initial phone calls were very professional and he wanted to get to know my groom and me, and our personal style. He was very organized through the entire process and the day of. He had everything covered from the day of photo information sheet to the wedding dress hanger for the gown pictures- ALL attention to detail. Mark arrived the morning of and got right to work and never slowed down until the reception ended. Our guests even commented on how professional Mark was and to look to use his services in the future for their own weddings! I felt very comfortable with Mark and our guests loved having him around for photos at the reception. Our wedding day photos are beyond stunning and I will always cherish his photographs. He was always 10 steps ahead of me so I didn't have to worry. His attention to detail, professionalism, and stunning photos are why I would only recommend Mark for your wedding day or special occasion.Sent on 07/30/2018

Mark and his team were WONDERFUL! It was so easy to work with him. He made the process so easy, and really made us feel like our opinions were heard and valid. He answered all of our questions in detail. On the day of they were so relaxed and calm, which really helps when you're already very anxious! I would absolutely recommend them!Sent on 06/18/2018

Mark is great! We haven't gotten our full photos back yet, but Mark has been great about sending sneak peaks and some photos in time for Father's Day gifts! Mark was great at directing my many family members and making sure we got all the shots on the list. I also liked that Mark did a great job of capturing the moment, without feeling like was in our face with the camera. Thanks so much and I will definitely be in touch about future events!!Sent on 06/06/2018

Mark is the BEST. I would 100% hire him to be the wedding photographer, if I had to choose again.Sent on 07/17/2018
I had been looking for a photographer but couldn't find anyone in my budget who had experience at Pakistani weddings. I even recruited my dad to find someone, and he had no luck. A few weeks later, I found Life Reflecting Images Photography through a flyer at a local restaurant near Dulles Town Center. I thought, why not check this out? He has great packages and the experience I was looking for.
1) He is professional, prompt, responsive, and agreeable. All the qualities in the making of a perfect event photographer.
2) His packages are reasonable and also much more affordable than many other companies I reached out to.
3) He was very flexible with our event timeline. Pakistani weddings are multiple events over a span of 2-4 days, so I was concerned he would be rigid with what we could do with our package. I was so incredibly impressed and surprised that he was willing to work with me to make the most of our photo/video package with his team.
4) Our photos came out absolutely STUNNING. His editing was tasteful and improved the quality and ambience of the photos ten-fold.
5) We had originally not hired a photographer for our religious ceremony (which was at noon the day of our wedding, with the reception in the evening), because it would have been out of our budget. Now, here is one of the aspects of working with Mark that I am most grateful for: he moved things around in our package so that he would be able to take photos and a short video at our ceremony. This was the single greatest wedding gift I could ever have asked for. He even stayed late at our reception which went over our original planned time. You can't beat that kind of service.
6) Our wedding video is amazing. Everything down to the angles and music choice was perfect. He also used the songs from my original playlist!!
Overall, my husband and I were 100% satisfied

Before I write about Mark as a photography and videographer I would like say few things about Mark’s transparency, honesty, professionalism, and determination to make brides, groom and their family happy. Whenever and whatever Mark has said, committed and promised at the end, our family received more of care, respect beyond our imagination, quality and quantity of photographs and videos that are unparallel. His eyes and his cameras captures image, so timely, that resonates the emotions of the bride, groom, parents, friends and all participating. These images make to live the experience over and over again. The pictures capturing the vibrant colors from the bride and groom’s dresses, radiant eyes full of love, and the essence of smiles of the bride, groom and their families and friends. Many photographs are so lively that you starts to feel the like watching a video. When you look at the video you realize one picture shows the emotions, colors and the energy of the entire clip of the video. The photographs and videos are organized in such an attention to detail that shows all the highlights of the wedding. As a parent of the beautiful bride, I would strongly recommend Mark and his team to memorialize the weddings and happy occasion for your families. You can count on value, quality, honesty, transparency, and high level of professionalism.Sent on 07/22/2018

Wow - honestly I can’t say enough about Mark and his team. We met with Mark about 8-10 months before wedding and he made everything such an easy process. The day of the wedding I had friends and family around and Mark just rolled with it. He answered our questions and gave us some great pictures and memories! Not to mention Mark is extremely fast in getting your pictures back to you!! Thank you Mark!Sent on 05/01/2018

We had the pleasure of working with Mark on for our wedding day, and he was by far our best vendor! From the beginning, his communication was quick, clear, and easy. From our first interaction with him, the meet-and greet, he was professional, and his work samples were amazing. He took the time to walk our venue prior to photos, and had great ideas the day-of. Our wedding day was stress free and efficient, many thanks to Mark. We had no idea what to expect regarding photography on a wedding day, but after experiencing Mark, and seeing photographers at weddings after him, we even more so realize he is a grade above! We highly recommend Life Reflecting Images, you won't be disappointed with service, professionalism, and most importantly, the lifetime memories captured in the photos you'll get back. (Added bonuses: working with Mark for your album, the app of photos you get when finished, the downloadable images, and the thumb drive!)Sent on 03/11/2018

On July 17th I placed a request searching for a Videographer for my daughter's wedding to be held on July 28th. I had 5 or 6 respond to this request with availability. Mark's response was very detailed as to what he provided, he included his website link and a quicklink to one of the highlight video's he had produced for another wedding. We scheduled a time with Mark to speak over the phone and were very happy with all his responses to our many (and I mean many) questions. This was our first time hiring a videographer and my daughter had waited till the very last minute to make the decision she wanted to do the video as well as a photographer. Not only were his prices very competitive (well he was the lowest offer of the 6) but his responsiveness to us was amazing. When our day arrived Mark was early to arrive to the venue, he asked for a quick tour which I provided and he met with Tabitha (my daughter) and I to go over his plans and preparations he was making - weather was coming and he wanted to be sure to capture the outside venue shots early so not to miss those (which was perfect because there was a constant downpour from 3 pm until well after the wedding was over). I had guests ask me numerous times throughout the day and into the night where we found the videographer. That he seemed to be everywhere all the time. My daughter even made the comment that he was perfect, and was thinking about pictures/video she hadn't even seen in all her various reviews of highlights (she was by that time addicted to looking at highlights). As the night drew to an end Mark quietly faded away and left during the packup of the wedding party. He was the best. We just received the video highlight to share with friends and family, and I will tell you not only is it completely perfect but Mark managed to capture the essence of the 12 hours he was with us amazingly. He captured moments I didn't see first hand for various reasons... Won't let me add anymore, but he is the best! SusanSent on 10/05/2017

Mark was our wedding photographer for our wedding in May and he was a pleasure to work with. We found Life Reflecting Images on Wedding Wire and were so impressed with Mark's professionalism and promptness in getting back to us so quickly. He answered all of our questions and was very accommodating and flexible to work with. Mark stayed in constant communication through emails, phone calls, and facetime to make sure we got everything we wanted while still sticking within our budget. We recently received our online wedding album and were very pleased that he was able to capture all the shots throughout the day! The online album makes it easy for us to view , print, and send out to our family and friends! Overall, we had a great experience with Mark and would definitely be recommending him to our family and friends!Sent on 07/05/2017

Mark was phenomenal to work with. Throughout the whole experience, he was extremely responsive to any and all questions we had. He was also great leading up to the big day helping us plan out how to best coordinate family, photos, and the wedding. The photos were high quality - worth every penny. He was also affordable compared to other photographers in the area. Mark works HARD for his shots, and everyone was impressed with him on our wedding day. The lengths he goes to for his pictures you can tell he wants them to be the best. Without him it would not have been such and amazing day.Sent on 09/13/2017

Paula and I were immediately impressed with Mark. He is a very personable and highly professional individual. At our first meeting, he thoroughly and patiently discussed our options and described the various packages that he offers. He has a very relaxed way of explaining the process and at no time did we feel pressured. The sample of his work which he provides speaks for itself. The pictures are wonderful, unique, and diverse.Sent on 11/14/2017
We were extremely pleased with the results. He captured all the beautiful aspects of our special day from the pre-wedding preparation to the reception. You can't go wrong with Mark. We would highly recommend him to any couple in need of a wedding photographer.
