Welcome to Mark J. Hillyer Photography
I’m Mark and I’m a Wedding and Portrait Photographer based in Yorkshire in the UK. Although I live between Leeds and York, I regularly shoot weddings in Sheffield & Manchester & I do work all over the country, I’m happy to travel to any location as I enjoy meeting new people and seeing new places. I’m a full-time Photographer and I feel lucky to be doing the job that I love in a way that I love to do it. Naturally and authentically.
Please feel free to have a look through my website and if you want to get in touch with me, just use the ‘contact’ link at the top of the page, I’d love to hear from you.
I like to approach weddings in a relaxed and natural way, documenting all of the details and moments that make your day special, as they happen, capturing all of the unique charm in a spontaneous and unobtrusive way, rather than spending too much time posing people.
To me, your wedding day is just that, a whole day. I don’t want to miss anything. I’m there from the first thing in the morning, with a mug of coffee. I leave with the last of the revellers at the end of the night. The secret is that it’s more than a job to me, I love doing it.
Why would I leave earlier?
It’s all about telling the story…
My wedding coverage starts first thing in the morning with the bride getting ready. I will be there, right the way through until the end of the reception. I typically spend 14-16 hours photographing a wedding because, in the words of Aerosmith, “I don’t want to miss a thing…” So, what do you get?

“We were sold from the moment we first met Mark: his relaxed, friendly style was exactly what we wanted for our big day. Nothing was too much trouble for him, and his enthusiasm and energy never seemed to wane (even after we did, around the 1am point!). His presence throughout the day was unobtrusive, discreet, yet always available. He met our requirements and exceeded every expectation.
Receiving our images – which arrived so promptly – was a very special day and we genuinely relived each moment through them. Our photos are a wonderful record of a very special day, which so many of our friends and family have commented on. The only downside was the trouble we had choosing which of Mark’s beautiful shots to get framed!
Mark offers a service without restrictions and full of warmth, which puts the Bride and Groom first. We cannot recommend him highly enough.
Thank you x”

Mike and myself would like to say a massive thank you to you for being our photographer. After looking through our pictures, we were overwhelmed with the quality and also the amount of pictures we have. The way you have captured special moments without us being aware is amazing and such a nice memory to look back on. Our guests were very impressed with you on the day, your sheer hard work and the number of hours you put in. You could really tell how much you love your job. Everyone also commented on how you just blended into the background and made everyone feel at ease.
Thank you again and we can not recommend you highly enough, we will definitely keep telling everyone about you!!
Mr and Mrs Rean”
