Thank you for being here and taking an interest in Marc Edwards Photographs. I believe the most vital ingredient in capturing your story comes down to our connection with each other. Rapport, comfortability, chemistry, liveliness and simply our ability to enjoy one another will help us capture those real and charmed images of you. It’s the relationship between you and your fiancé that I find uniquely interesting and special, so for me, the only way to authentically capture you is to create a relaxed, fun and interactive environment. My goal is to keep this as organic as possible so you look and feel amazing. If you have a good sense of humor and enjoy laughing then we are off to a great start!
A little background about me. I was born and spent my childhood in Cheyenne, Wyoming. As a lover of nature and being outdoors, I consider myself at home when I’m hiking a mountain trail or casting a line in a river. I also love camping and my favorite color is rust. Yep, totally a color! I gravitate to camp fires, the smell of pine, honey suckle blossoms and coffee. I love city life too but nothing reboots my mind better than a hike in the woods and connecting with my inner outdoorsman. This side of me is what I tap into when I photograph. It helps me slow down and be present to try and connect in the moment.
For me, I try to remind myself that less is usually more. Clean, beautiful and fun – or so I try.
I may have an unhealthy obsession with Mumford and Son’s, a proper Old Fashion and of course craft beer. But they say you can never have too much of a good thing, so be it!
To explain why I appreciate craft beer is to look at the ethics behind it. Pure and quality ingredients, an adventurous curiosity, fellowship and pride give us that experience we’ve come to know… Not to mention the ridiculously amusing names of beers that brewers come up with! You know what I’m talking about. And not only do we enjoy partaking in this rewarding beverage but we love the atmosphere created around the microbrewery and the tasting room. It’s the adventurous, quality approach and never settling for mediocre mentality that I want to try and bring to my craft for you. Cheers!
WOW is the response we get from everyone when they see our wedding photos - which we love and will cherish forever. But the real wow is working with Marc! Marc flew to Houston to do our engagement photos and ended up doing 2 evenings of pictures at 5 different shooting locations without charging us extra. He was extremely mindful of costs in planning his trip, too. And it was SO much fun - we got so many types of shots. The glamorous and the intimate sweet ones. And the guest book he made with them for our wedding - we will cherish it forever! It was perfect for us. For our wedding pictures, Marc was fun, relaxed and efficient. He was always mindful of the light and even coordinated with the videographer to set up lighting equipment that allowed us to get STUNNING sunset pictures. He was extremely professional and truly captured our wedding day perfectly, down to the finest details. Some of our friends were so impressed by him that they booked him for family portraits later that week and theirs are amazing, too! I am so thankful we chose Marc to photograph our wedding day & I hope we have the opportunity to use him again for family pictures 🙂
Marc Edwards is sincerely THE BEST. My mom and I met Marc about 10 years ago when I was looking for a photographer to take head shots for an upcoming pageant I was competing in at the time. From looking at Marc's portfolio, I knew he would deliver great work, however, I was blown away when I saw the photos that he produced. Not only were his photos beautiful, he had a heart of gold. He also made my mom and I laugh and eased my nerves during our photography session together. A few months after our first session, I needed more photos taken and of course went to Marc to have them shot. I was again very pleased with his outstanding work. Now, nearly 10 years later, Marc has photographed my husband and I's engagement, wedding, baby announcements and most recently, our maternity photos. He has been a part of all of our major life milestones and has always made us feel like a million bucks when we shoot with him. He has an impeccable attention to detail and has a knack for finding a way to capture the best photo moments in any situation or scene. His sense of humor will make anyone, even my husband who isn't a huge fan of taking photos, feel comfortable and relaxed. My family and I have became very close to Marc through the many years of having our photos taken with him, and established a great and trusting friendship that we feel so blessed and fortunate to have. I would absolutely recommend Marc 100 percent to anyone, and in fact many of my friends have had their photos taken with him and have been extremely happy with the outcome. Our family truly adores Marc. We are so grateful for the journey we have traveled together, with him by our side, capturing the most perfect and cherished moments in our lives. Sincerely, Lisa Murphy
Marc was the photographer for both my engagement and wedding photos and I couldn't recommend him more highly. Marc's wonderful and funny personality put us at ease and kept us laughing which really showed in the photos. His photography skills are incredible and he was dedicated not just to getting a few good shots but to making every picture look beautiful. He has an eye for finding great locations that make for gorgeous photos and provides you with any other guidance that you need. We couldn't be happier with the pictures that we will now get to enjoy for a lifetime. Would recommend him to anyone who wants an album full of amazing pictures! 🙂
I was a destination bride so finding vendors was pretty hard since I lived in another state. From the moment I met Marc I knew he was the one to photograph our wedding. His work spoke for its self but he was also fun and easy going which made the process a lot easier. He made my entire process a breeze by keeping in touch with my mother and I in the up incoming months , giving ideas, and helped make the best possible package for our wedding. My husband is not big on taking pictures, but he enjoyed working with Marc. Marc made it fun and easy to let loose. After our wedding I even had our guest telling us how much they enjoyed Marc. Everyone said he was the most pleasant photographer they had met/seen at a wedding. I never had to stress over pictures for our wedding because I knew Marc would capture every moment and make the most beautiful pictures. I absolutely love our wedding pictures, I look at them at least once a week. I highly recommend Marc as a photographer for your wedding. My husband and I have already stated we will use Marc for future photographs. The Hester's
Katie and I were a newly engaged couple from Windsor, Ontario, Canada, when we decided to have our engagement photos taken at a place which is personal to us and our families- St. Pete Beach, Florida. Having no insight to the photography world down in Tampa, Katie researched endless photographers and emailed a few inquiring availability and pricing. What had led us to work particularly with Marc was based on a combination of factors. From our initial contact with Marc via telephone we could right away sense his charismatic personality, and his genuine desire to hear ‘our story’ and our vision for the shoot. His phenomenal skills of capturing moments with such a mystical ambiance using natural lighting is what made our decision that much more easier. We would have never thought that an engagement photo session could be so natural and easy- and that's exactly what it was! Marc made our experience very comfortable and guided us when needed. Sometimes we actually forgot that he was there as he kept some distance to capture the vibrant landscape that surrounded us. Marc has this brilliant ability to change his original, intended plan and capture something in the moment as he sees it unfold. At the end of our engagement shoot we invited Marc to join us for a BBQ on the beach and learn more about his photography and the many reasons why he loves to shoot wedding photography. Thank you for capturing this special time in our lives!
