Introduction: Since 1995, I have been photographing both weddings and commercial fashion assignments throughout the U.S. and abroad. Based in the American Southwest, most of my time is concentrated in Southern California, Arizona, Nevada and the greater Southwest. My philosophy is to perfectly blend a documentary approach with an “ L.A. Style” fashion editorial look. No matter the location or size, I shoot everything as if were destined to be published in a magazine. I think most or all of my past clients would agree that I love music and like to laugh and have fun… a lot! Humor is the spice of life and brings out the true beauty in everyone. There’s nothing more beautiful than a bride glowing with joy and laughter. Mark Wangerin

Mark was a pro and it absolutely showed! So glad I chose him for my wedding photography. I was nervous about my husband hating the camera but Mark was able to bring him out in a really beautiful way. All my photos came out beautiful. He really captured the romantic vibes and celebration of our families coming together.

Engagement Photography

Joani and Mark were AMAZING!!! As a couple, 2020 was the hardest year we experienced together, from COVID postponing the wedding to parents getting sick and ultimately cancelling our wedding, we planned a long time to have the whole thing foiled. But Joani and Mark were so sweet and understanding, and understood that although we were unable to actually have a wedding, the pictures we took would represent a strong amazing relationship despite all the hardship. With everything we’ve been through this year, these pictures were exactly what we needed. Joani and Marks vision and wanting perfection in their vision was great, especially when we had none and felt defeated. I 100% plan to use them again once we decide to schedule a new wedding date! I cannot thank them enough!!!

I am a youth leader in a small church in Arizona. Our youth kids had the opportunity to lead our main Sunday service this past weekend and we hired Mark to capture the event. For starters, Mark was early and completely prepared. He was funny and professional and the kids thought he was "so cool"! He captured every single important element of our service and we barely even knew he was there...so stealth! Our photos tell such a precious story of, not only our service, but how the kids interacted with each other and the congregation. Truly priceless moments. Mark's wife, Joani, is an incredible communicator and so encouraging. She was out of town for our day but she watched our service online from out of state. She was definitely there in spirit! Studio Wangerin is not simply an incredible and seasoned professional photography company, they are amazing humans who will personalize every aspect of the shoot they are hired for. Their work tells your story in perfect detail, and the images are flawless. We will hire them again and soon. Thank you so much Mark and Joani! Blessings over both of you!

    Contact us

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Well, I dislike the word "customer" because I photograph people and lives. But, my process is simple. We start with where and how long you need me. We go from there!

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Mark has shot professionally in LA (fashion/commercial, weddings, and formal portraits) since 1995, and had the good fortune to mentor under one of Hollywood's legendary photographers from the golden days. You can find his work in many publications around the world! He also holds a degree in Music Theory and Composition...creating beautiful works of art is his life.
