Hi & welcome to Mark J. Hillyer Photography.
I’m a Portrait & Wedding Photographer, living in Yorkshire between Leeds & York.
I shoot weddings and portraits all over the Yorkshire area: from Thirsk and the moors down to Sheffield, and from Hull right across to the Dales. I’m also lucky enough to work all over the rest of the country too. I love to see new places and meeting new people.
One of my favourite parts of being a wedding photographer is getting to hear different stories & discover what connects people as a couple. It’s fantastic to be doing what I love, especially because I get to do it in a way that I love too; I look for the natural & real moments that happen throughout your big day and capture them authentically. I tell your story as it happens.
To me, your wedding day is just that: a whole day. I don’t want to miss anything. If you choose the Full day package, I’m there from first thing in the morning with a mug of coffee and I’m with you all day! If you need more coverage, perhaps to capture both of you getting ready, that’s no problem. Let me know and I’ll tell you about my additional wedding photographer Leeds prices – I work with both male & female photographers too, so you have a choice.
Are you there all day?

It’s all about telling the story…
Please explore my site: have a look at the portfolios & read a few of the blog posts to get a real feel for my work. I also do pre wedding or engagement shoots. It’s been a busy year for me but I’ve got caught up on all of my processing now, just in time for the new year booking frenzy!
The latest weddings on the blog are Emily & Giles’ brilliant day at The Roundhay Mansion, Nicole & Chris and their gorgeous winter wedding at Hornington Manor near York, and Mia & Ken who tied the knot at Yorkshire’s finest Northern Monk Brewery in Leeds – that was certainly something a bit different different! I offer a bit of something for everyone, no matter who you are and what the feel of your wedding – and not just in Leeds either.
I love photography of all kinds, so there are quite a few posts that are about my personal work too. If you want to get in touch with me, I’d love to hear your story.

What Do They Say
“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.”
“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.”
“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!”
“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.”
