Wedding Photography, Done the Natural Way

Based in Leeds, Yorkshire

Welcome, I’m Mark Hillyer.  I’m a portrait & wedding photographer and I live in Sherburn-in-Elmet, Yorkshire, with my wife and daughter.

I’ve been shooting weddings for about 10 years now, all across Yorkshire.  I’m lucky enough to work all over the rest of the country too. I love to see new places and meet new people, discover what connects them and I love to tell their stories through documentary photography.

For most of the day, I work in a completely natural way, no posing. No feeling uncomfortable while I set up lighting. I want the real moments & the real connections and relationships between you and your guests. Captured authentically, as they happened. 

If you’d like to discuss how we’d tell the story of your day, get in touch.

Creative Contemporary Storytelling

Capturing the relationships and connections in the most natural way is really important to me.  I consider “We hardly knew you were there” to be a huge compliment.  I prefer to document the day with as little orchestration as possible.  We’ve all been to a wedding where we had to stand around for ages waiting for the photographer. Well that’s not how I work.

I start first thing in the morning and I’m there until after the first dance, capturing the whole day.  I want to capture your story of your day with the aim of putting it all together in a beautiful, timeless book for you.   

I’ve sourced some of the best suppliers who make the most stunning wedding albums because photographs should be viewed.  My album package is really important to me. Although I do provide you with a presentation USB of all of your images, who wants to look at a USB? 

My Album Package includes a gorgeous, bespoke album, designed by me, including images that I shot to be deliberately to be viewed in a book. 

Other than your rings, your wedding album will be one of the few physical reminders of an amazing day.  It’s also, the only one that will increase in value over the years to come…

Kind Words..

“The photos are epic!!! You just really captured the day. I’m so grateful you captured all those little touches I’d spent so long planning and then didn’t actually see on the day itself!! Having looked at them from the start, you tell the story of the day so well. I feel like I saw the wedding day for the first time just now ! There is such artistry and beauty in the photos. That’s why I chose you to start with and you completely proved me right! Absolutely love them!!!!! They’re not just wedding photos. They are memories.”

Charlotte & Ed, Leeds

“His eye for the perfect shot is utterly phenomenal and he managed to capture so many tiny moments throughout our wedding day. He helped to make everyone feel so relaxed, but also managed to disappear into the background at other points and reemerge with the most wonderful and natural photographs.”

Laura & Oliver, York
“All of our guests commented on how fantastic he was on the day, and how they barely noticed he was there. He’s really captured all of the emotions felt on the day, and I couldn’t ask him for anything else!”
Charlotte & Glen, Leeds

“My husband and I cannot recommend Mark enough! We have just received our wedding photographs and he captured every single moment from start to finish with such an attention to detail.”
