Mark is the owner & primary photographer for Life Reflecting Images. Using interactive methods in his Award winning wedding photography and family portraits, you are sure to have a great time no matter the occasion.

What separates me from the thousands of other photographers in this saturated market? Often when clients first book me, it's about what they see in my work.

“How does Love speak?
In the faint flush upon the telltale cheek,
And in the pallor that succeeds it; by
The quivering lid of an averted eye--
The smile that proves the parent to a sigh
Thus doth Love speak.”

Reflecting back on the busiest year I’ve ever had with rescheduled weddings from 2020 and new ones too, I’m so fortunate to have had so many amazing clients to work for. Looking forward to 2022, more time with family and sharing what we’ve been thrilled to accomplish. Happy New Year!

Our Story

If you've ever had a job where you get up in the morning with anticipation and excitement, wondering what the day has in store for you, well this is one of those. Having worked 20 plus years in the retail industry as a Field Manager growing service-focused stores from 2 locations to now over 100, I understand the importance of great service, and will go out of my way to deliver an exceptional experience along with a great product.

My style of photography is better described as photojournalistic, however, that phrase describes only capturing moments without composition. I have a developed sense of style (partly from my previous 20 year position) that understands how to capture terrific art, compose great family portraits that will look natural and endearing, and with the right setting can compose fashion shots that will live on your walls for years to come.

I also work with a great team of people that allow us to deliver you great images in less time. We can handle just about any event.
