Timeless Wedding Photography In Changing Times

Marcus has built a photography studio recognised internationally for the creativity, quality and professionalism of their work. Marcus’ natural ability to capture the spirit and character of the people he photographs forms the base of the studio’s signature style under the studio banner of Studio Impressions based in Brisbane Australia.

His highly emotive, documentary style, and his quiet, unassuming approach have made Marcus one of the most sought after wedding photographers in the world the past 15 years.

The Australian Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP) has recognized his professional talent with the highest accreditation of Grand Master of Photography.

He has been named Australian Wedding Photographer of the Year 3 times, Queensland Professional Photographer of the Year twice, Queensland Wedding Photographer of the Year 4 times and has won numerous international awards for his work, including the highly coveted Grand Award for Photojournalism at the Wedding and Portrait Photographer’s International (WPPI) awards in the USA and the International Wedding Print of the Year at the Prix de la Photographie in Paris.

But Marcus’ photography is not about him. Photography is his way of giving others a record of their love, those meaningful moments to hold onto forever. He loves it. And it shows.  

Yet, it is Marcus’ quiet nature and his passion for people and their relationships, for families and touching moments that makes him such a popular photographer with couples looking for something truly special that takes him to all corners of the globe.
