Stolen glances, tear-filled smiles and intimate moments play a part in every masterful piece of art; work that combines an emotive beauty with a modern realism. A self-confessed romantic with a swathe of awards to prove his technical ability, photography will always be Marcus' way of giving people a record of their love and their lives to share for generations — a way to tell their story.
