We absolutely love the pictures. All of them. You are a real genius. Everyone already commented on how great the pics are on your GHP website and the ones that already had their wedding are probably jealous that they only had a mediocre photographer 🙂 We will always have the best memory of the day thanks to you 🙂
You were wonderful! We are so incredibly honoured to have had you be part of our day. Thank you so, so much for everything. Thank you SO much for the photos. We're in love!
NADIA & TOM
Thank you so much Mark! The photos are brilliant. Thanks for all your efforts on the day and everyone was saying how nice you were!
Elizabeth & Steve
The photos looks amazing and turnaround was so quick!! We just wanted to say thank you so much for being incredible on the day, we couldn't have asked for more! We had people constantly come up to us to say how fantastic and just how intuitive you were with the photos. I will definitely write up a review shortly and keep recommending you to anyone looking for a photographer.

Organising a wedding from the other end of the country is not easy but Mark made everything simple. Nothing was too hard for Mark even some last minute requests. All our guests praised Mark for his friendliness and relaxed attitude, some thought he should have been on our guest list. I have and would recommend Mark to anyone looking for a talented, relaxed yet professional photographer. Thank you Mark for providing us with many lasting memories.
Sarah & Joshua
Photography was a tricky one for us, we spent a lot of time trying to find the perfect photographer that we felt would capture our personalities and style and when we stumbled upon Mark, we had no doubts he would do an amazing job!
OMG!!! The pics look AWESOME! Thanks so much for working on them so quickly! 🙂 I've been so excited to see them. I love all the ones you put on the blog post!! The dance floor ones are hilarious! Made me laugh!
All I can say is WOW! We are thrilled with our photos, they are absolutely beautiful. Your relaxed vibe really suited us and our day. You made everyone feel so at ease and you captured such wonderful moments. Our families were amazed at our stunning photos, and I’ve been showing lots of people today at work and everyone has commented on how beautiful they are.
Megan & Mark
Wow, the photos are amazing!! Thank you so so much! We love them. We had the most wonderful day and you really captured all the joy and laughter in such a natural and beautifully candid way. I'll be recommending you to any friends who need a photographer for any event in the future.
Sarah & Gerry
Oh my goodness… the photos are absolutely amazing. We cannot thank you enough. We love them!Thanks so much you’re a legend. Everyone who have seen them so far is raving about them!
Mark was wonderful. He is so relaxed and calm, when we met him for the first time we knew he’d deliver the goods. We are terrible at posing for photos so his brief was to capture the best candid moments of us looking amazing, without us knowing. He was early (!) on the day and practically invisible but captured everything. Mark’s partner had gone into labour that evening. He was amazing and gave us his full attention throughout the night, and his partner had a healthy baby boy the following day so he didn’t miss it!
Mark at Gold Hat Photography, was an absolute legend. We grabbed a coffee with him in Bondi when we were back in Sydney in February for another friend’s wedding and gave him the job on the spot. He was really laid back, personable, professional and not only ‘got’ what we wanted (which I think was a challenge in itself) but seemed to be genuinely excited in helping us capture it. For the most part we barely knew he was there – I look back on the photos and think ‘how did you get that one, I didn’t even see you there?!’ – totally unobtrusive but always there to capture the best moments. Plus he’s REALLY tall, which helps eliminate any double chins 🙂
I randomly found Mark online after googling “natural candid photography” or something to that effect. After looking at his website I thought he had a lovely style and would do a great job – and he absolutely did. His style is very natural and non-intrusive, so you don’t feel like you always have to be posing for a shot. He is also just generally a lovely, relaxed and funny guy to be around – a lot of our guests commented on how personable he was, so that’s always a good sign! The end result was a beautiful set of photos that we will appreciate for the rest of our lives!
We really struggled to find the right photographer, but we clicked with Mark and he really felt like the right photographer for us. He exuded a calmness and professionalism that made us feel he would not only be a great photographer, but the kind of person we wanted to spend the day with. It turns out we were spot on. Mark fitted perfectly into our day, from his dapper attire to his laid back sense of humour. But most importantly, we love the photos.
Oh my god Mark – they are amazing! I can’t stop smiling!! You did a fantastic job. You are a truly talented photographer. We are thrilled to have had you capture our special day 🙂 I can’t thank you enough – these photos are a million times better than anything I could have dreamed for!! My dad cried when he saw the photos, I too was emotional & one of my friends said “Oh my gosh. They are beautiful!!! I got so emotional scrolling down and seeing the day all over again!”. Dean’s sister said “Wow Anda!! That’s all I can say!!! They are perfect.” One of our groomsmen said “They’re mad! Can I put one on Instagram?!”
After meeting with 3-4 photographers, Ben and I decided on Mark Condon from Gold Hat Photography. We loved the candid, spontaneous nature of Mark’s photos and felt that the images we had seen from other weddings he’d shot made us feel as though we were a part of the wedding itself! We also knew that Mark would be a fun guy to have around on the day as we didn’t want a photographer barking instructions at us on the day and interfere with the natural flow. Mark was professional, adaptable and offered up some great suggestions for shots on the day. Mark turned our photo’s around rapidly and within 2 weeks we had a gorgeous ensemble of pictures to share with our family. We have since received all our pictures and could not be happier… Mark has captured parts of the day that neither of us even knew existed.
WOW!!!! There are so many awesome shots ! It’s so nice to look through them and re-live the day too. I won’t start commenting on individual photos or this will go on forever…. but WOW!! Thanks so much for sending them through – as always we appreciate you being so easy to work with.
Mark from Gold Hat Photography shot our wedding. When we were searching for a photographer, we were drawn to his candid and natural style – we didn’t want too many staged photos. He has totally exceeded our wildest expectations. His photos were brilliant and captured so many details of the wedding. He stayed right up until the end of the night – and we had images waiting for us when we returned from honeymoon a few weeks later. We didn’t tell Mark when we hired him, but a lot of our friends work in photography, graphic design, or picture editing. They’re a critical audience – and so many of them have raved about his images. He also just happens to own an awesome scooter.
Mark did an amazing job as our wedding photographer (March 2015) and we couldn’t be happier with his photos. He was also a pleasure to have with us on the big day, and his calm, laid-back approach worked perfectly. Would have no hesitation recommending him to anyone as their wedding photographer. Thanks Mark!
Brian & Melissa
We got your beautiful postcard and amazingly packaged USB with the wedding photos…. and we LOVE the photos!! Even Marc got teary looking at some of the photos of him with this family. And I absolutely love the one you took of our favourite quote about not walking alone, with us in the background. Thank you for taking all my requests on board and capturing everything so beautifully!!
Shireen & Marc
Starting from the first meeting in a friendly cafe and through to receiving the final images in a custom-made wooden USB case, our experience with Mark as our photographer was a pleasure from start to finish. He has produced something that we would be proud to have in our possession and show off to our friends. We have already recommended Mark to a few of our close friends.
