It's fair to say that both Leo & I hate having our photo taken! To be honest, I was quite worried about the process of the photography, purely because of the discomfort I feel when a camera is pointing in my direction. And yet, we have ended up with a set of beautiful photographs, all taken in such a way that we both felt fine about it!
In terms of talent, Mark is a fantastic photographer. The shots are technically perfect, there are some outstandingly beautiful images and he used the locations incredibly well.
But more importantly, was the way in which he did it. He managed a large crowd with ease, clearly directing everyone. I'd also asked for photos of the details; the things that I'd worked so hard on to get right. He captured them perfectly. He made me & Leo feel comfortable, coming up with all kinds of creative ideas and spotting moments that offered a great photo opportunity. Those shots are my favourites; the ones where Mark clearly knew to capture something funny, unusual or emotional.
One of the most important facts was that Mark let us have our wedding day as we wanted it. If I didn't want to sit down on the grass (mainly because I knew I'd struggle to get up again with how tightly my dress was laced!), he didn't mind. When we'd had enough of posing, he let us go inside the hotel and took those all-important photos of the details. I never felt that we were pressured; he worked around us, quite inconspicuously and for this, I'm truly grateful.
Overall, I would thoroughly recommend Maleko Photography. We couldn't be happier with our wedding photographs and thank Mark for all he did. Because of him, we have a beautiful set of images to be proud of.
