Introducing our wedding photographers, Masanori and Abbie

“Big Mark here.  I’d like to introduce you all to two of my closest friends, Masanori (Masa) Udagawa and Abbie Dorrington.  While I have been getting back to full health I’ve entrusted Masa and Abbie with most of my event photography.  And as we head towards the end of 2018 I’m excited to announce that Big Mark & Co will be offering wedding services again, with Masa and Abbie at the helm.

Masa is a photographer that never manages to miss a moment.  He has decades of experience and has full command of his camera, is friendly, polite, and takes fantastic photos.

Abbie joined Big Mark in 2014, and over the last four years has grown to be a fantastic creative photographer.  She has an eye for a great composition, and she excels at being able to communicate her ideas with the people she works with.

As a team Masa and Abbie compliment each other perfectly.  They know each other well and they move around an event almost instinctively, capturing angles the other one might not be able to get.  Together they encapsulate the Big Mark ethos: capturing images that tell the story of your very special day.  Masa and Abbie are available to shoot weddings in the Wellington region and the Wairarapa.”
