Mark Holladay was a dream come true. our pictures are to die for and he is such a wonderful person to work with, his prices are very reasonable his quality of work is very high end and he is very professional and easygoing at the same time. he was the best choice, thank goodness we chose him.
We came to Hawaii to marry and honeymoon. We found Mark of Holladay Photo online and loved his pictures. After we talked to him on the phone, that sealed the deal and we couldn't have been happier. He was kind and personable. It was easy for us to communicate and our guests loved him. We wanted to do some photos unique to Hawaii so we did a photo shoot on the beach, but Mark actually went into the ocean with us and took pictures, which came out amazing. He uses water and light to capture truly unique photos.
If I could, I would give Mark Holladay 10 out of 5 stars. Mark shot my destination wedding on the North Shore last summer, and did an amazing job; and I get compliments on my wedding photos all the time.
I live in Los Angeles, and after looking at dozens of wedding photographers online (including all the usual suspects listed in all of the bridal directories), they all looked a little stiff, conventional, and even a little underwhelming. And the ones that were decent were ridiculously expensive!
Luckily for me, I stumbled upon his website (www.holladayphoto.com), and loved the style of his photos. They felt bright, fresh, well composed, and intimate. From the get go, Mark was extremely easy to work with, accomodating, and a great presence during my wedding. Many of the guests actually commented on what a cool, laid back photographer we had.
As for the specifics, we had a sunset ceremony on the beach, and an outdoor reception at night -- and he captured the festive mood and colors beautifully.
I honestly think that who you choose as a photographer is one of the most important parts of your wedding experience because those photos last forever; and I think that Mark did an amazing job; and was worth every penny we spent. I would hands down recommend him to anyone getting married in Oahu.
