hi, i'm elyse marks

I’ve been shooting professionally for over a decade, making memories for hundreds of families as they celebrate all of life’s special moments – it’s the best job in the world and I thank my lucky stars every day.

But what else am I into I hear you ask (silently)…

I trained as an actress!

I love hacking away at my lovely garden

I am a fierce LGBTQ+ ally

I live in Old Harlow, Essex with my fiance Rich and his excellent beard. We took this ridiculous self-portrait on our 8 year anniversary.

When I’m not shooting families enjoying life I’m capturing all the fun in the corporate world! Events, portraits, headshots… Check out my other website www.elysemarksimaging.com to see what I get up to!

DIY… I painted my kitchen cabinets dark blue 

My niece and nephew are the best!

My new coffee machine!

I LOVE animals! I walk 2 dogs through Borrow My Doggy, have a furry nephew (Iggy) and I’ve been vegan since 2017. Doing my bit to save animals from cruelty, help the environment and stay as healthy as possible makes me smile big. I even love the cat that shits on my lawn every morning but won’t let me stroke it.

My parents are my best friends

Mine’s a glass of red, please

I made this website all by myself!
