Dear everyone,

When you're planning a wedding, one of the most important vendor roles is the photographer, because they're going to be capturing photos and memories that you'll cherish for the rest of your lives. My wife Kat and I just got married in the Washington, DC area 6 weeks ago in November 2013, and Mark Kuroda was the photographer for our wedding. Words can't even express how highly I recommend Mark. He is a 1 in a million photographer with such a rare gift. He's an overall awesome person, he's a joy to work with, he's chill and encouraging, guests love him, he's humble and selfless, and of all the 1000's of photographers out there, he is hands down the best photographer I've ever met, not just for weddings, but for anything. Like dancing is to Billy Elliot (in the movie), singing is to Whitney Houston, or math is to Good Will Hunting, Mark just has the instinctual gift for photography. It's in his soul. It's not work for him, and it's not forced - he just can't help but be naturally amazing because it's the lens through which he sees the world. Kat and I first met Mark 5 years ago at a friend's wedding, and we saw what an amazing photographer he was for our friends. That day, we said to ourselves, "If we ever get married, and if we ever need a photographer for our wedding, we MUST have Mark do our wedding." 5 years later, after we got engaged, we reached out to him, and invited him across the country to photograph our wedding in DC. Luckily, he was available and agreed to do it. This 5.0 rating scale doesn't even do justice, and I wish I could give a rating that goes off the scale. In our engagement shoot, Mark brought out sides of Kat and I that we didn't even know we had. For our wedding/reception, he CRUSHED IT. The moments he captured are beyond priceless to us. From now on, I'm going to recommend Mark to every possible wedding I can, because I want every other couple to experience the joy that Mark brought to Kat and me.

Mark is the bomb!! We loved him to death. I live in Boston and searched all over Boston. Mark was recommended by a friend who also hired Mark. I looked at his work and fell in love with it right away. The struggle was to have Mark come from SF to Boston. Luckily when he came to shoot for our friend's wedding, we were able to meet in Boston to do our engagement shots. We totally loved his shots and could not get enough of it! If you just want shots that are traditional with some buildings you like, then Mark is not for you. Our photos from Mark are artistic, modern and stylish. We just loved him.

On our wedding day, Mark came early and walked around the area to see and feel the atmosphere. He pointed some spots out that he thought was cool and we completely trusted him. We also had a few places in Boston in mind and Mark was cool with that too. He is very easy to work with. His personality is young, laid back and just cool. He worked overtime without being asked for it. He is just a great guy, artistic, funny, professional and polite.

We love mark. I highly recommend him if you can afford him! You will not regret! I would give him more stars if I could on here!

Mark is an amazing photographer, and will be one of the best decisions when it comes to your wedding. Mark did both our engagement photos and our wedding day photos and we could not be happier with the results. All of our family and friends have told us how great our slideshow looks and have even asked for his contact info after seeing our pictures.

There are many things that stand out with Mark’s photos. One is his ability to really capture the natural emotion in his photos while at the same time making them look incredible and professional. He took many candid shots throughout the day that didn’t require any posing or staging that really help us to remember all the details from our day. They are really “in the moment” so you don’t feel that people are posing just to be in the photo. He also has an incredible eye and can find shots in places and settings that we would never have imagined. You can see examples of these on his online blog.

The other great thing about Mark is his personality. He is able to interact with kids, grandparents, aunts and uncles who may not speak good English, and is able to get them to smile and enjoy themselves throughout the night. We took a large group photo after our ceremony and he was able to get everyone to cheer, even people I didn’t think would want to participate. He danced with us on the dance floor and even took photos during that time too. We had him ride with us as we moved from place to place and he told us stories to take the edge off and lighten the day. Finally, I don’t think I saw him sit down once throughout the whole day which shows his dedication to making sure you get good photos.

Finally, Mark has incredible amount of experience. He is doing so many weddings, even some international, that you can feel confident you will have amazing photos to remember your day by. Even if you feel lost as to how you should pose, he will instantly have an idea that will surprise you. And best of all, Mark is very responsive by email, which is a plus during such a stressful planning time!

Mark is a picture takin' God. He found some amazingly beautiful yet artsy locations for our wedding pictures. I crossed traffic and stood on the rail lines in downtown long beach. So fun! I don't know how he does it, but I couldn't be happier about our decision to hire Mark. His style is exactly what we were looking for. We wanted lots of action shots and less portraits. He just popped out of nowhere at every turn! Check out his website. Every picture is a piece of art.
Thank you, Mark!

Mark is an AMAZING photographer who worked exceptionally quickly and professionally to fit all of our photography needs. Our engagement and wedding photos are remarkable, and everyone comments on how excellent the photographic quality is. Mark is an artist and provides atypical photos characteristic of his subjects, not standard typical "wedding" photos. He's not cheap, but he's completely worth it.
