As soon as we saw Marcus’ website we were in awe of his amazing talent and simply stunning photography. His ability to not only capture the raw emotions of people, but also evoke so much emotion from his photography was so special. Once we spoke with Marcus we knew he was the photographer for us. We were drawn to his friendly and easy going personality and loved the passion he had for his photography.

Planning a wedding from overseas can seem daunting, but Marcus made the entire process, from consultation to album design, so easy. His calm personality and unobtrusive style allowed everyone to relax and have fun on the day, and what can I say about the images he captured – wow! We were blown away. Marcus captured every single detail, every candid emotion and every beautiful memory in the most stunning, breathtaking images we have ever seen.
– Cecile and John
Marcus was relaxed and fabulous. We don’t remember having most of our photos taken but Marcus was always there capturing magical moments. We will treasure the pictures of us sharing intimate moments, sneaking a kiss and holding our family members close. We didn’t want to pose and Marcus’ journalistic style was just what we wanted. He captured all of the emotion in the real moments of our day. He is amazing. Every moment was a highlight and Marcus was there to capture it all!
– Kristy and David
We just wanted to say a huge thank you. We are so happy we chose you to capture our special day. The album is absolutely perfect.
– Michael and Christine
Dear Adam, 15 May, wow, a day we will never forget, laughing and dancing, we had a ball! And you’ve caught it all on film, the expression, the emotion, the fun. We’re just thrilled. Thank you.
– Natasha and Josh
Thank you for all your help leading up to, on and after our big day. You made it all so stress-free and were endlessly patient.
– Sarah and Paul
We were still completely blown away when we first came in to the Studio Impressions studio to view our photos. We didn’t want cheesy or staged wedding photos. We wanted to have fun with our guests, and for someone to be able to capture those moments. Marcus was almost invisible throughout the entire day – he was so unobtrusive – you wouldn’t have known he was there. But he was everywhere! I think that man definitely has his Weet Bix for breakfast! Marcus not only captures the candid moments so well, in that brilliant photojournalistic style, he also captures all those must-have shots – but in a really unique way – be it at a surprising angle or dramatic use of colour or composition. We love love love our wedding photos and would recommend Marcus in a heartbeat. He is worth his weight in gold. He is also an absolute pleasure to be around – and you hear that from all the suppliers.

Finding the superlatives to describe your photographic record of the day is challenging. Perhaps the awards you have received in the past and recent present articulate your talents better than I can. I find myself dipping into your blog quite frequently, revisiting the day, always finding something new to delight in and wondering how on earth Kirstin and Matthew will make a decision on what photos to select for their album. To say a simple thank you is hardly adequate, but from my heart I ask you to please accept my thanks and believe me when I say you genuinely deserve it.

Aurelie, Just wanted to shoot through a big thank you. We could not have asked for better photographers and more lovely people to capture our day. Thank you for keeping me relatively sane and David and I are so happy that you ‘got’ our vision for our photos. Definitely the most enjoyable part our day was spending time with you at GoMA, truly a calm time in the hectic nature of our day.
– Kirstin and David
Thank you very much for sending us the link to the blog and our slide show. The photos look… incredible.
It was such a privilege to have you as our photographer. You not only captured every important moment of our day, but through the photos you told the story as it happened. It was so effortless! At no moment did we feel pressured to pose, kiss, hug or smile for the camera. You just captured the love, the beauty, the drama, the personalities and the details of the day as they happened. That is exactly what we wished for from our photographer and something we will cherish every time we look through our photos.
– Maria and David
They were totally unobtrusive. They are so so so so professional and got things done while not interfering at all in the proceedings. The slide show at the reception was AMAZING!!! The images are priceless.

I had been an admirer of Marcus Bell’s portfolio for quite a few years and I had always known that I wanted him to photograph my wedding some day. Marcus has a very special way of capturing a moment in time like no one else. Marcus is so kind and down to earth and you can really feel his genuine care for you. On the day Marcus was just marvellous so unobtrusive and discreet, we had a lot of fun with him on the location shoot. Seeing our wedding photos for the first time at the studio was so emotional it was like reliving the day over again. Budhi and I laughed and cried through the whole slideshow, it was absolutely breathe taking. Marcus and his team are of the upmost standard in professionalism and service. They have also been extremely accommodating with our busy lives during the image selection and album design process.
– Sarah and Budhi
We purposely didn’t want to spend a lot of time away from our celebration posing for pics. Marcus Bell took us 10mins away from the venue & captured some amazing shots of us as we enjoyed out first glass of champagne as husband and wife. Everyone commented on what a fantastic job he did and how he managed to capture the mood and atmosphere of our day without drawing attention to himself or invading anyones privacy.
– Anghard and Manny
Dear Adam, We just wanted to thank you so so much for the amazing photos you took for us on our wedding day, and for engagement. The guests at our wedding have not stopped raving about the slideshow. It was beautiful. You don’t know how much it means to us to have our feelings for each other on our special day captured forever so beautifully.

Marcus truly takes my breath away with his captures. The photographs have an intensity to them that capture the significance of the wedding day… Marcus has a regal-ness to his photographs, a magic. Along with plenty of candid images there are images that make your jaw drop as the sun streams through the clouds, creates a piece of art from an intimate moment or a frozen moment in time from a moment of joy.

The images are pretty much as gorgeous as you can possibly get…with a sense of romance, of mystery, of total passion tucked into each and every one.
