I’m Mark Sisley, Buckinghamshire wedding photographer. I’m based inside a lovely period property in Coleshill near Amersham, Bucks. I’ve now been a full time professional photographer for just over twenty years. To date I’ve photographed over 1,200 weddings and over 5,000 outdoor family portraits. My wedding photography and family portraits take me throughout the UK, although most of my bookings are in the Buckinghamshire or Home Counties areas.
My website has over 50 different galleries, showcasing Buckinghamshire wedding photography as well as other Home Counties venues I attend regularly. You’ll also find galleries for Classic, Candid, Detail, Barn, Kids, Winter and Marquees.
A BIT ABOUT ME
First and foremost, I’m known as a wedding photographer here in Buckinghamshire. When I don’t have a camera in hand, you’ll probably find me visiting vintage shops and food markets, or tending to our numerous flower borders at home. My perfect holiday destination would be in the Scottish Highlands – the scenery is stunning for photographs! My favourite pastime is kayaking, and I regularly paddle some of the calmer rivers in the UK. To read more about me, have a look at my About page.
MY PHOTOGRAPHY STYLE
I mix modern fun reportage photography with classic style imagery. I’m known for my eye popping colourful images and my dramatic use of light. At the same time, I keep my rates reasonable to ensure I stay busy in the job I love, photographing weddings in the beautiful historic properties of Buckinghamshire.
For me there is nothing more magical and inspiring than documenting candid, natural moments between two soul mates. I would love to capture your love story with images that mean something to you, and will be treasured forever.
DRAMATIC BEFORE & AFTER LIGHTING TECHNIQUES
Over the past 20 years I’ve been using my unique floodlighting techniques and methods to great effect. Ever since I developed these quirky lighting practices, I’ve been constantly experimenting with new ideas & approaches to make the totally impossible 100% possible! You’ll see these spectacular and magical lighting effects used throughout my portfolio.
Once the light has faded, I’ll capture the two of you in front of your venue or landscape, illuminated under dusky blue skies to create surreal and artistic results. You’ll have totally unique imagery, with the absolute wow factor to end your day!
More than anything else, it’s my special effects floodlighting photography which has set me apart from other wedding photographers. Any good photographer can capture stunning imagery when your venue or gardens are already floodlit, but sadly the vast majority are rarely illuminated! This is when my quirky lighting tricks come in very useful.
Despite being asked hundreds of times to share my lighting techniques by fellow professionals, I’ve kept my ways of working totally secret. But you can read more about my night shots on this blog post, and you’ll see lots of before and after examples, together with the story behind each image.
