My name is Mark, and my wife is Carly. We are a husband and wife team, which means that our clients receive far more attention than one photographer can offer.
I started getting into photography in 2003 with film cameras. From there I transitioned to digital photography and also gained experience with photo editing. With over ten years of photography experience and a collection of professional gear, I was ready to take my hobby to the next level. We started our business in the summer of 2015 and have been increasingly busy ever since.
While we are always seeking new opportunities, our primary focus is portrait and wedding photography. We have worked with a range of clients, from individuals to families to large groups, and I have experience working with children of all ages, and even pets. My work has been featured on the cover of Smart Living Weekly, a magazine by Rockford's Northwestern Quarterly, and you can also find my photos in Rockford's Festa Italiana periodical.
As I mentioned, Carly and I work together on all our photo shoots. Before portrait sessions and weddings, she helps me with location scouting and planning shots and poses to ensure that the session will run smoothly, but don’t worry about being too scheduled; we are always up for spur-of-the-moment ideas and candid shots. During the session, Carly communicates with the client, aids with posing, and assists me. Our collaborative effort ensures that clients will have a positive experience.
We encourage you to browse through the galleries, which are always being updated with our favorites from recent photo shoots. If you are interested in having your photos taken, please contact us to set up a consultation.
