I cant say enough good things about Mark from Expressive Photographics. Starting with our engagement photo shoot, he had the best locations in the area, we did some at the beach and some at the park, he was so creative and made us feel so comfortable. I was amazed with the photos. He just did my wedding recently and was so pleased with the amount of photos he was able to capture. He is reliable, punctual, professional, kind, and just overall a great person and photographer. He worked well with me in putting together my wedding album, which turned out amazing! Highly highly recommend him, he has tons of experience and yet still comes up with new ideas all the time, he is truely the best at what he does! You get what you pay for, and it was definetly money well spent. Memories to last a life time. Thanks again for everything!

My husband and I had Mark as our wedding photographer in Santa Cruz and had the most positive experience with him. He was great to work with starting with the engagement photos all the way through to our wedding photo album. He was always very responsive to my emails and never hard to get ahold of. His work is truly creative and talented and I recommend him to everyone. He is great with capturing the outdoors and really captures special moments. I hope to work with Mark again in the future!

Another year, another session! Since the last review we had another baby and of course that meant another family photo session with Mark.

We drove down to Santa Cruz again because Mark is truly in his environment in his town. With two small kids (2.5 yr and 1yr) we requested that Mark pick something outside and somewhat secluded to prevent the kids from being distracted. Mark took us to Four Mile Beach with blew us away. It was amazing with both a bluff and beach to shoot photos on he kept the kids moving and happy. We spent almost 3 hours taking photos which is amazing given we were up against nap time and Mark made it fly by. Once he noticed our kids needed a break and he suggest we simply let them play in the sand for a bit. To my surprise he kept taking photos and when we received the images some of the best shots are of our girls just playing.

Mark is incredibly professional, friendly and easygoing with an innate ability to select amazing locations and capture the amazing everyday life shots. He has become part of our family from our engagement through 2 children and I can look forward to knowing he will be there to capture our memories for many years to come.

Sarah, thanks so much for taking time to share this detailed review of my services. I'll be forever grateful for the amazing loyalty you and Ben have for Expressive Photographics - driving almost two hours, with baby & toddler, so we can create beautiful portraits of your family! Of course, it all started with your incredible wedding, but I believe our creative working relationship will last for many years to come!

He was a great photographer. We got an excellent discount. He offers free engagement photos with his packages, but we already had these done so he converted it to wedding photos- so we were able to send a photo with every thank-you note, it was wonderful. He was the best deal available.
