Mark was amazing to work with. He met with my wife and I multiple times over video calls to discuss the game plan for the big day and listened to our ideas. He made our wedding day less stressful because of his calm demeanor and professionalism. Mark knew exactly what type of shots we wanted and he really brought the beauty of the wedding to life in his photos, and we can't thank him enough. He was able to capture the day perfectly. I would recommend him to anyone. His work says it all.

I cannot express how amazing it was to work with Mark. It was the best decision I made in my entire wedding process. We were so lucky to have Mark as our wedding photographer.
He made us so comfortable during photoshoot and he captured our best moment so well. We got gorgeous photos and love every single one of them. I can't stop looking our photos over and over again!

We absolutely loved working with Mark! He photographed a meaningful portrait session to document our engagement, and the photos turned out so beautifully. He made us feel very comfortable during the session, and we felt like he really captured our personalities and our joy in the most lovely, artistic way. We highly recommend Mark, and hope we can work with him again for future milestones!

Mark is absolutely incredible! We first met Mark for our engagement photos, knowing that he would be our wedding photographer as well. This was such an incredible idea because Mark was able to take our vision and bring it to life with both our engagement and wedding photos. He was such a great guy to work with and the photos are absolutely spectacular. We cannot recommend him enough!
Jovan Sinik on 10 Dec 2022
When we were originally looking for wedding photographers we have found Mark and we never looked back. We knew right from the beginning he was the perfect match, and he has truly delivered.

We cannot thank him enough for the beautiful pictures and the wonderful memories he has created for us. We are in awe with his sense of touch every time as we relive our most memorable moments.

If you are looking for a photographer, especially for your engagement or wedding, look no further.

We can't say enough good things about working with Mark!!! From the start, he was organized, professional, and his calm demeanor made us feel like we were working with a friend. Our backyard wedding had a ton of details and logistics and Mark was not only patient with the many moving parts, but also provided us with a ton of advice to make sure our photos turned out great. My husband and I don't usually take a ton of pictures so we knew we wanted more documentary style photos for our wedding, and Mark's photography was above and beyond what we could have imagined. He made us feel very relaxed and at ease, exactly what we were looking for on our wedding day. Do not hesitate to book him for your own event, we'd hire him again in a heartbeat.
Monica Leaman Married couple on 22 Apr 2023
Literally the best, most unique photographer ever. Mark was professional and organized, quick and efficient. Everyone at our wedding joked that he was like Indiana Jones with his double camera straps! I got a sneak peek at some of our photos and they are STUNNING. Mark is so talented, you cannot go wrong working with him. He is so personable and makes you feel comfortable throughout the entire process. Thank you Mark!


Mark Trela
Photographer Mark Trela About me

Every wedding tells a story. It’s a story of love, passion and  commitment. As it is with life, all the best stories evolve  organically. As much as weddings are well rehearsed and  neatly prepared they all share moments of spontaneity and  surprise. These moments of pure unfiltered emotions coupled  with unconstrained jubilation are what make each and every  wedding a unique and wonderful event.  These are the raw elements that drive us as photographers  and make us so passionate and excited about wedding  photography. It’s that rare contradiction between organized  and impulsive that manifests itself throughout the wedding  day. It’s the grand showcase of love and all the small instants  of life that create the whole story.  We are Mark and Magda, a husband and wife wedding  photography team from Chicago. If you feel connection with  our work, please get in touch via a contact form. We would  love to hear your story.
