Hi, I'm Mark, a creative wedding photographer based in Doncaster, South Yorkshire where I am happily married to my very supportive wife of 10 years, Stacey. We have three beautiful young daughters, Macy, Betty and Cissy who never fail to amaze and inspire me everyday. As an artistic person who has always had a passion for photography, I spent years admiring things photographed by others, until one day I picked up a camera and realised I had a natural ability for photographing people.

My clients frequently say that I work in a relaxed and friendly way which makes them feel at ease. Perhaps it's because I capture candid, natural shots where most of you would agree that you look your best. That's enough about me, if you are looking for a passionate wedding photographer, please get in touch so we can talk about you and your wedding plans.

If you don't live in the Doncaster that's OK, I am willing to travel anywhere to fulfil your needs. I genuinely look forward to hearing from you soon. Mark.

We saw Mark at a wedding fayre and didn't get chance to speak to him so we took his card, I am so glad we did as I wouldn't have wanted anyone else to take our wedding photos. He is very professional and friendly. Nothing is too much trouble for him, he captures the very best photos he possibly can so you have the best memories of you perfect day.

Customer Testimonials

The photographs we have from Mark are simply stunning. He is a genuinely kind and funny person who made us feel so comfortable from start to finish. He captured pure love and emotion; for this we are truly grateful and we now have the memories to share with our loved ones forever. We can’t recommend Mark highly enough - I just wish we had enough wall space to frame all of the amazing pictures!

Thanks ever so much to Mark for his hard work all day at our wedding. He was professional from start to finish and a perfectionist in his composition and editing. He is never afraid to go above and beyond to compose a photo and thinks outside the box using the environment to his advantage - even rearranging a hotel room for the perfect shot! We would thoroughly recommend him as a friendly and trustworthy photographer for your wedding day!

We are just sat rewatching our wedding photo video for the 10th time since we got our photos back on Monday & they get better & better every time!

Choosing Mark was easy for us, he did our best mans wedding in July 2016 & we knew right away from their photos we wanted him. He captures not only us, but the whole day!

You see and feel every emotion throughout the day and we honestly couldn't recommend Mark enough. If you are looking for a photographer, you've found him, trust me!

We love all 782 photos, you've given us memories that will last us forever. Thank you so much Mark!

100% perfect! We just received our wedding photos a few days back and couldn't be happier! Mark was amazing from the start! Very professional, friendly and will do anything to get the right shot (even climbing in the bushes in his suit!) Our photos are natural and there is so much attention to detail. Mark even shipped them from the uk to Dubai for us. We were so lucky to have Mark there to capture our most amazing memories. If you're getting married Mark Crayden wedding photography is a must have!!!!!

Just wanted to say a Big Thanks to Mark for our lovely wedding photos. So glad we picked him to shoot our long awaited day. Nothing seems to be too much trouble for Mark. We had to change our wedding date at very short notice and Mark was great. He sent us the dates he was free so we could re-arrange everything easily. On the day Mark just blended in and put everyone at ease, capturing some lovely natural pictures. He even noticed that the grass hadn't been cut where he wanted to get some shots, and somehow managed to find a Gardner to cut it!.Love looking at the photos and seeing everything we didn't on the day. Would definitely recommend Mark to anyone wanting lovely natural coverage of their day. He was only with us for 3 hours and in that time he captured so much.

One of the things lots of people have commented on after our wedding is how unobtrusive Mark was and how much care and attention to detail he showed throughout the day. If you are looking for a wedding photographer, I highly recommend having a browse of Mark's website and a read all the reviews.

When we first met Mark, we were shocked by how at ease we were with him; it was like we already knew Mark. Mark was so friendly and easy to talk to and we were left really excited about Mark photographing our wedding. Fast forward a year to a couple of days before the wedding and we met Mark at Normanby Hall (our reception venue). Down the path strolled a beaming Mark, who'd already been round the park before we arrived - as well as going to the church where we were getting married - to get his bearings for the weekend. It was so nice to know Mark was prepared and eager to get shooting on our wedding day.

On the big day, Mark just slotted straight in, from start of the morning, right up until he left (after snapping some of our questionable dance moves in the evening).

Now, we can't wait to see what Mark captured on our day. Thank you, Mark!

I have worked at many weddings including high profile Premier League footballers weddings and sports personalities for Formula 1 , Golf and Rugby plus actors weddings but it was Mark who we asked to photograph our own daughters wedding as he is quite simply the best. Mark captures those natural moments and has the gift of being able to blend professionalism with friendliness, putting everyone at ease, we cannot recommend Mark Crayden Photography highly enough THANK YOU Mark

So in love with our wedding photos we can't stop looking at them! Mark was so professional throughout the build up, the day and after and listened to exactly what we wanted. We felt so relaxed on the day and love how natural the photos are. Our photos are perfect and we would definitely recommend!

From Our Website

So I suppose this is the bit where I tell you how much I love being a wedding photographer and start to drop words like documentary, creative, natural, contemporary, candid, the truth is I'm all the above and a little bit more, you see I don't want to pigeon hole my style, for me that would just be a restriction on my creativity, I take photos of what I see, people being human, moments of feeling, touch, and joy, always trying to capture images in a real and honest way. Sure, I'll do the group shots, but these are done quickly and efficiently, giving us more time to capture the real moments of the day.
