tobeAdored is English husband and wife team Mark and Maria Woods, now living in California.
Maria is a freelance illustrator, artist and photographer with 24 years' experience
in commercial art, illustration and photography, including 3 years on contract to Hallmark Cards.

Mark is a photographer and photoshop wizard of some 20 years.
Together, we offer wedding, boudoir, and commercial fashion photography to the San Francisco Bay Area and the world! We're currently taking bookings for 2015. Our wedding collections start at $8000.


We're an easy-going couple, who like to use the engagement session to get to know our couple - and vice versa.
Post processing and Maria's book designs are major strengths.
Our style blends photo-journalism to capture the day, with a fashion sense to lightly pose portraits on your big day.

We also offer bridal portrait, and trash the dress portrait sessions to complement the pictures from the wedding, and get another few uses out of that special dress!

INFO FOR PHOTOGRAPHY

What primary photographic style do you identify with?
Contemporary, Photojournalism, Portraiture, Traditional / Posed
What do your packages include?
Albums, Custom Graphic Design, Digital Files, Flush Mount, High Resolution Images
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Do you offer special techniques such as hand-coloring or toning?
Yes, Maria has been a commercial artist for 20+ years and brings that experience to book design and image post-processing.
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
Yes, work well with natural light, flash, video lights and studio lighting.
Is your media preference film or digital?
Preference is digital. We can shoot film, but haven't done so for a few years.
How many photographers do you work with?
We always work as a team of two - we're a husband and wife team. Either shooting different angles or one helping the other with lighting.
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
Absolutely!
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
Never book more than one event in the same weekend. Shooting a wedding is fun, but exhausting!
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
Not happened yet, but we have a network of local pros that we could turn to in this event.
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
Four camera bodies, lenses, flash, video light and other reflectors, etc;
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
Yes. We both shoot with two bodies, plus have a fifth as spare. We are professional!
Do you charge hourly or full day?
Coverage is typically 2 shooters for a 6 to 12 hour day. Depends on collection selected.
Are you available to shoot extra hours? If yes, how much do you charge for extra hours?
Collections dictate how many hours we shoot, but we don't watch the clock. Did we mention that we ENJOY this crazy business - we're there to get great images.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
We require a meal break at a wedding, even if we do find it hard to take it and stop shooting.
Do you charge for travel?
Out of area travel costs are agreed with client prior to booking.
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
6 weeks maximum.
In what format are the initial proofs offered?
On-line proofing with shopping cart is our standard method. We can also offer a printed proof book, and an initial slide-show of the images.
How long can the client keep the proofs?
On-line proofs are visible for 3 months. The proofs are password protected, so only you can view and pass the details to others to view. Galleries can be re-instated if required.
Do you retain the copyright for the photos?
Yes, always. No professional would give copyright away. However this is often confused with reproduction rights - and we allow that so that you can print from the digital files we give you. (We provide very high quality JPEG files of all images.)
Do you reserve the right to publish the photos?
Yes, our contract states what use we can make of your images. We want to be able to promote ourselves with your images.
Do you provide the digital files and/or negatives (or copies of the negatives) to the client?
Yes, we provide all finished files with the wedding book delivery. We can provide sneak-peek files for your facebook pages very soon after the event!
Will images be available for viewing online?
Yes, we use a professional on-line service with shopping cart. Password protected.
What kind of albums do you offer?
Currently, we work with two of the best vendors in the world to offer three styles - flush, combination flush/traditional matted, and magazine style.
When will the client get the final album?
Album manufacture and delivery is 6 weeks beyond design sign-off. Since most clients find the huge number of proof images overwhelming, Maria designs albums with your "must have" image choices - and then you are free to iterate from this deign. Few do! We ask clients to finalize the design within 16 weeks of the wedding, but we understand when life makes this impossible!

I could not have asked for two better photographers. From the moment we went on our engagement shoot, my (then fiance) and I knew we made the best decision. They have a way of making you comfortable in front of the camera. They are so much fun that we never wanted the day to end. Our pictures came back and they were better than we even imagined. When our wedding day came, they were such a breath of fresh air. They stay on task, even when dealing with picky family members! I haven't gotten all of my pictures back, but the sneak peak made me cry! I love love love their work and will use them as long as they allow me, for everything!!

We just loved working with these photographers! Mark & Maria did our engagement shoot as well as our wedding, and they made both great experiences.

I have been to weddings where the photographers are either markedly absent much of the day, or aggressively intrusive during special moments (nothing like a zoom lens in your face as you're hugging your best friend who just got married!), and they were neither. They were present for everything, we never had to pause for "wait! where are the photographers?"

One of my favorite things about them is that they don't include hours in the contract, they just shoot as long as there's stuff to shoot, which was so generous and wonderful. They were some of the last people to leave our wedding. They also stayed calm and collected in the stress of a million family portraits, pushy family members insisting they know which pictures we want, and one side of the family not speaking English (quite a challenge!).

I haven't seen ALL the photos yet, but the "sneak peek" blog post of ~30 photos they've posted is incredible-- I'm already having trouble deciding which ones to frame! We also absolutely loved our engagement photos. I would definitely work with these kind and professional photographers again and recommend them to anyone getting married in the area.

THANK YOU Mark & Maria!

We worked with Mark & Maria for our October wedding (as well as for our engagement photos) in San Francisco at the Four Seasons, and were extremely pleased with their work. In addition to the excellent quality of the photos, their customer service went beyond our expectations, and we had lots of fun in the process.

Photo-quality wise, everyone who has seen our photos has been blown away at how beautiful and professional they are. Mark & Maria made things look even better than they looked in real life, with their use of lighting, placement, venue, and position.

Leading up to the wedding, Mark & Maria came to NY to take our engagement pictures. Their eye for locales was excellent, and they were very enthusiastic to incorporate our ideas and suggestions as well. Their ease and engaging energy made the day really fun and quite memorable.

Their customer service is truly top-notch, as they were quick and punctual on deliverables, and made sure that everything was turned around in a timely manner. They always put everyone at ease, especially the day of the wedding, and we were all laughing the whole time.

In short, we have nothing but positive and glowing things to say about them, and we can't recommend Mark & Maria enough.

I had initially seen Mark and Maria's work while attending a friend's wedding. I was very impressed by their interaction with the wedding party, how they managed to get wonderful shots without being intrusive, and their fun personalities. Before even being engaged I knew I wanted them as my wedding photographers. My husband and I selected them for our recent September wedding and we cannot not say enough great things about them. They made everyone feel at ease in front of the camera and captured EVERY DETAIL of our wedding beautifully. We were completely blown away by their photography. Amazing!

Mark and Maria are simply the best. We met them only 5 months before our wedding, and by our wedding, we were wishing they could be guests as friends rather than working! They did such an amazing job capturing the essence of our day, and our joy that I am truly amazed.

Our photo's are absolutely stunning. We are constantly asked about our photo's and if we paid artists to do the photography. We couldn't be more thrilled with our engagement photo book, and the multiple cd's of wedding photos.

Simply the best photographers around - hands down and bar none, you should use them.

Mark and Maria are a great team of photographers that took the time to get to know our needs and us. The result was amazing photographs that captured every special moment.

Not only were they a delight to work with on the engagement shoot, they put us at ease on the day of the wedding and helped us to look amazing in the photos.

Maria is the artist and Mark is the techie, resulting in the most amazing merger of talents and skills. To enhance there talents, they are equipped with some high-end cannon equipment that immediately got my husbands approval.

I would highly recommend them for any bride-to-be.

Mark and Maria Woods of To Be Adored are a delightful, talented couple to work with and I highly recommend them. They each shoot their own camera the whole time from different angles so that no shot is lost.

Together they have both the technical understanding and the artistic eye to get wonderful shots. They were quite witty and friendly and many of our guests actually had a very good time just interacting with them, and still they were very professional, they knew their purpose and were never distracted or obtrusive. Honestly, other than when we were doing some staged shots and portraits I hardly noticed them.

We have been given a large number of photographs and every single one has been excellently done. They shot the wedding from end to end and got all the important moments as well as a whole bunch of ones that we didn't get to see.

Our engagement shoot was terrific, and given it was extremely unusual (we shot our pictures on our motorcycles in a graveyard) flexibility and creativity are both natural to them. I imagine a conventional photographer might have some concerns but they actually jumped at the idea. Mark even created a YouTube video and we watch it over and over.

In short as you can tell with the overall rating, Mark and Maria are fabulous, a joy to work with and very talented. I recommend you book them early as they are very very busy but getting To Be Adored as your photographer will not disappoint.

TRULY MAGNIFICENT CREATIVE TALENTS

Mark and Maria are truly magnificent creative talents with their charming English accents they help to make any shy person blossom in front of the camera! Mark and Maria came highly recommended from mutual friends that used their photography services for everything from wedding and engagement pictures to family portraits and boudoir sessions.
For our needs my wife and I needed engagement/wedding photographers. For our engagement pictures, we traveled with Mark and Maria to Carmel last fall and had pictures taken on the Carmel beach and Mission Church. For our wedding pictures, we traveled with Mark, Maria and our wedding party to a Japanese tea garden. On both occasions, Mark and Maria helped to make us feel relaxed and confident in front of the camera; which helped us to enjoy our photo sessions. Once our pictures were developed we were thrilled to see that our pictures looked like something out of Vogue magazine!

DYNAMIC CINEMATIC UK DUO

Mark and Maria make a dynamic cinematic UK duo and we are proud to say are our good friends. My wife and I used their photography services for our engagement and wedding and were so pleased with our pictures that we invited them to come to Tahoe with us to take some family portraits and fun pictures. We decided on going to the stone boulders at San Harbor Beach, Tahoe. After we had our family portraits made, my wife and I dressed up in our matching wedding day outfits my beautiful lady in her wedding dress, tulle and hiking boots and me in my suit and hiking boots. We had fun scrambling over boulders, turning this way and that posing for the camera. This was truly a memorable day, our pictures look wonderful and we look forward to using their photography skills again.

Mark and Maria are the best photographers I've ever come across and are a fantastic team to work with, very professional and make the whole process fun. They recently took our engagement photos near Santa Cruz which are simply gorgeous. I recommended them for two of my friends who got married recently with absolutely stunning results.
