Southcoast Weddings is a husband and wife photographic team, Merri Cyr and Mark Walker. Merri has worked as a commercial and fine art photographer for over 20 years in NYC and Mark joined her photographing weddings in 2008. With over 10 years working together photographing weddings as well as documenting over 600 events for Apple in NYC’s Soho and Williamsburg stores, Merri and Mark enjoy working as a team to ensure full coverage of any event. They have a candid, journalistic style - documenting events in an unobtrusive manner as they happen. They also enjoy taking the time to work with bride and groom to create beautiful portraits, giving direction when needed to help things go smoothly.
Recently relocating from lovely Greenpoint, Brooklyn to settle in the beautiful town of Westport, Massachusetts Merri and Mark work comfortably in both urban and rural environments and have considerable experience photographing events in NYC, Boston and Connecticut as well as destination weddings.

“During our 3-month engagement period, my then-fiancé-now-husband and I scrolled through numerous portfolios. The wedding industry is a world of its own, and in the realm of photography, certain formulaic themes start to emerge as you scroll through the images. We wanted to find a professional photographer who can tastefully go off the beaten path a bit. We came across Merri's work and were struck by the edgy beauty and artistry. (I'm a classically trained musician, and her artist portraits are what initially caught my attention.) While we weren't quite sure how that would translate in the highly prescriptive and vanilla world of wedding, our engagement photo shoot with Merri quelled any uncertainty we had. She captures emotions, light, and action beautifully. The subjects' poses may leave much to be desired, but her work somehow yields natural and intimate images - whether taken in portraiture or photojournalistic style. On our wedding day, both Merri and Mark, her second photographer, were a joy to work/be with. After the celebratory dust settles, images are what remain.” Grace, 07/22/2018
