Marc took adoption announcement photos for me. He showed up on time at a location I selected. The pictures look awesome in the sunset and I got the pictures back in a downloadable format in 4 days. There are a couple of areas of improvement in that he didn’t bring a letter board that I could have written I’m adopting on which would have been a nice touch. He also didn’t let me know if my hair was out of place or my tank top was hanging out prior to taking photos. Now granted the wind was blowing, but there were times when it would have been nice to know. It was his first time taking pictures of baby items and no people in the photo. I think that we both learned from this experience, and my friends and family love the pictures. For the price, it was worth it, but I would have paid a little more to have my hair where it goes.

Thank you for your feedback. :) I will seek to apply it going forward. I enjoyed this shoot. I did not know you were expecting me to bring a letter board. We never discussed that. And I am sorry that the wind was so crazy that day.

Marc did an amazing job with my friends and I for our graduation photos on UNC’s campus so I had to book him again for my graduation photos with my family. He is so friendly, easy to talk to, and professional. My family is pretty awkward and he did a great job directing us and picking backgrounds that ended up looking phenomenal. He was super flexible about what kind of photos we were taking and who was in each shot based on my preference. I felt he genuinely cared about getting my family good photos to commemorate the occasion and he went above and beyond to ensure that happened, including carrying a bunch of photography equipment around the NC Art Museum grounds. He sent a link to the gallery via email after he had done the editing, and the link is easy to share with others (with a sign in code/email). Highly highly recommend Marc!

I reached out to Marked by Grace Productions after seeing some reviews on the internet. We live in Texas, but our daughter was graduating from Duke and we wanted photos of her and of our family who were gathering for the celebration. He worked with us on timing (we have some elderly people in our group) and was so very patient and professional with everyone. He really took his time to capture beautiful images of our daughter and our family. The proof gallery was ready within a week and a half even though it was a very busy time of year. The quality and value of the work were exceptional!

Professionally and personally, I have worked with many photographers each year, and March was hands that down one of the best! Not only did he go out of his way to accommodate our needs as out-of-town visitors, he also showed compassion and patience when dealing with our setting, the weather, and other other unexpected factors. My mother’s 70th birthday celebration would not have been the same without these beautiful photographs. His work is outstanding, the digital proofs were provided quickly, and Jean-Marc will now be the only photographer we use! Simply outstanding. Thank you so much for making this memorable for my family.
