Wedding and Portrait Photography
This is us!
A little bit about us
We are a husband and wife team with a passion for photography, and each other, with a friendly, laid back and relaxed approach. We have been on both sides of the camera which we think has great benefits in knowing how you are felling on such a big day. We have over 30 year’s experience in all genre photography, from weddings, portraits and lifestyle. We are based in the beautiful surroundings and the countryside of Northamptonshire, and are happy to travel to you across the UK…and beyond.
Beautiful memories to last a lifetime
We are storytellers, and would love to tell your story on your special day. Elamark will capture every moment of your wedding day that will be filled with love, emotions and happiness as your day unfolds. From spontaneous intimate and candid reportage to gorgeous classic pictures. Our style of photography is documentary, we want to make you feel comfortable and at ease when we take your photographs, we want you to enjoy your time with us. We don’t expect your guests to pose for hours on end or hang around. In fact Elamark would prefer there be no posing at all, but, we understand that weddings are family occasions and couples may want family photos taken during the day and we take these without fuss.
We want to capture relaxed and fun loving couples that want to get the most out of their day and the best from their photographers. However, we will discretely whisk the happy couple away from your guests, which we feel will give you both a few minutes to catch your breath, take in your day, and show the love that you have for each other, whilst Elamark captures timeless, romantic and natural images of you both.
The power of print
Books, wall art and prints are a wonderful thing. Each collection that we offer includes an Italian handmade lay flat book, which is a beautifully presented book telling your story for you to have, hold and treasure. It is your history in the making, which you will be sure to value forever.
A few kind words
Never in a million years can we explain how incredible our photos are, They aren’t just wedding photos but a snapshot of the day itself as it unfolded. This is the most important day of your life and afterwards all you will be left with are the photos, so finding the perfect photographers is vital and we can honestly say that’s what we got with Ela and Mark.
We are not comfortable with posing for staged photos but we felt completely at ease with Ela and Mark who were both there not just in the moment but also snapping away for those un staged shots that complete the story of the day. Most of our guests and ourselves didn’t even notice until we saw the end results that our photo had been taken.
We then had the most perfect after service you can imagine, nothing was too much for Ela and Mark to sort out for us, this is important as you have one stab at creating that perfect wedding album and with their expert help and knowledge we achieved a most magical result.
The wedding day may have gone but with Ela and Mark's help we have a truly exceptional wedding album that we can look at and remember all those little things from the day.

"We cannot recommend Ela and Mark highly enough. From the moment I met them at the wedding fair to the very end, there warmth and friendliness sold it to me straight away and I booked them the moment I met them. For me I wanted those getting ready before photos and I have to say having a female photographer really appealed to me. Even though we chose the basic package, Ela and Mark treated us the same as if we’d booked a top package. They constantly touched base with us and their relaxed friendly way really put us at ease. On the day they were exactly the same and made the photos fun and for a couple who do not like their photos taken they really made us feel at ease. This warmth continued right to end and have to say we cannot express enough how pleased we were with our photos, especially our album." Mark & Nicola
"We were both very impressed with your style and the way you helped us with the photographic experience despite the very short notice we gave you. You made us both feel very relaxed and confident that you could achieve exactly what we want from our wedding photos. The photos are fantastic. Our photography experience was very enjoyable. Your relaxed and friendly manner really helped. We would recommend the experience to anyone. We found you very professional in your planning and execution of the photography session. Ela’s advice when choosing which poses to use was invaluable. We would recommend you without any hesitation. We are delighted with our photos. Thanks for being so efficient-the images are first class!" David & Sue
"Right from the first time that we met we felt so comfortable and relaxed.

"We found you to be very professional and our pre-shoot really helped us to know what we really wanted from our wedding photos as well as ensuring we all felt comfortable and at ease on the day. Guests commented on how lovely you were and the relaxed nature of the day is expressed perfectly in the shots. We couldn’t be happier with our photos…Only problem now is deciding which to put on the wall. Thanks again." Simon and Sheri-Lynne
