The Secret to Love Is Laughter.

You're getting married! You take style and fashion seriously, and you tried on way too many wedding dresses while drinking a lot of champagne. You don't want traditional wedding photography because you're not a professional model and sometimes you're awkward in front of the camera. Don't worry. I got you.

I am a documentary style wedding photographer headquartered in Wilmington, NC and available for destination weddings worldwide. I deliver my clients a world class experience by saying a lot of ridiculous things and making them laugh so hard they cry. I only shoot 15-20 weddings per year, because I believe in quality over quantity. 

This is your wedding. This is your life. Let me create memories for you that are a pleasure to look at...over and over again.

If you want absolutely amazing and stunning photos of your wedding day, Marcus Anthony is the photographer to go with! He did an incredible job for our wedding. We have literally hundreds of gorgeous photos to choose from. It is actually going to be a challenge to narrow down ones to frame.

He got amazing formal photos, but also brilliant candid photos of all our guests, and me and my husband. He really captured the night and helped us to preserve the wonderful memories from our day. He was extremely professional, you never felt like he was in the way, but he still managed to get great photos.

We could not stop laughing. I honestly can not recommend him enough.

I've learned the secret to being a great photographer. Wanna know what it is?

Be a great person.​

I spent the first two years of my career focused on creating the most perfect photographs I was capable of producing. I would spend most of my time behind my computer planning styled shoots to build the best portfolio I could because I thought that's what defined the best of the best. While I by no means regret those years, I had a light bulb moment early this year that totally transformed the way I run my business.

The clients I want appreciate my talent, but they appreciate a genuine soul even more. 

There are so many Wilmington wedding photographers to choose from nowadays, it's often difficult if not impossible to determine ​which is the right one for you. The convenience of the internet has made all of us shy. We send emails instead of making phone calls because we don't have the time or because we're simply too afraid of being sold something we don't want to buy.

I've taken this last year to completely overhaul my wedding photography business to include the missing piece​ that is crucial to all successful sales transactions: education.

​I'm so proud to announce that I now offer a complete consultation experience in the comfort of my beautiful historic downtown Wilmington Wedding Photography Studio on the 7th floor of 2 N. Front St. Not from Wilmington? No problem, video chat works just as well!

The important thing is that we connect as human beings.

Wedding photography is a BIG DEAL, and I make sure you realize just how much value these photographs add to your lives as a couple. 

There's something so human about grandparents going through their old wedding albums and looking up from the photos at each other and remembering why they fell in love all those years ago. That's what I provide to my clients. Beautiful memories for the rest of their lives.

Thank you for checking out my website! I am a Wilmington NC wedding and portrait photographer, and I own and operate a studio and gallery in beautiful historic downtown Wilmington. I strive to create works of art, not just photographs. I am very deliberate in my process, and I don't snap my shutter for just anything or anyone. I've spent the last 17 years with a camera in my hands, 4 professionally. You could say I know what I'm doing :) 

I've been published by many blogs, magazines, and news sources including Focus on the Coast, Wilmington Weddings and Events, and the Wedding Essentials Blog.

​I'm happy to say that I travel quite a bit for this dream job of mine. Many of my clients are outside of Wilmington, and I've been lucky enough to travel with several of them to their own personal paradise and document their adventures. If you're getting married here, there, or anywhere, please don't hesitate to reach out and take me with you! I'm a great travel companion :)
