Meet Klarke the founder of MangoMoon Photography

 "I love photographing weddings and enjoy creating stylish creative images for my clients. Each couple is unique and so is their wedding which is why shooting them is so much fun" Klarke

Klarke Caplin has been involved in photography since she was 10 years old and specialises in photographing people. She has a passion for black and white and is known for her innovative portraiture. She set up her first photographic business when she was just 16 year old, taking black and white portraits of her school friends.

Her work includes portrait, celebrity & news photography. She has had several exhibitions and won multiple awards for her photography. Initially self taught (with some help from her father who was a keen photographer) Klarke's qualifications now include an MA in Photography from the London College of Printing and a certificate in Photojournalism from the National Council for the Training of Journalists. She has achieved Associate level in the British Institute of Photography awards (ABIPP) and works for several celebrity picture and news agencies, including Associated Press and Camera Press. Her work has been published in the UK as well as internationally, in both newspapers and magazines, including OK Magazine, Hello, Brides, Closer, Daily Mail and the Evening Standard.

She is based in central London and regularly travels on assignments throughout the UK, as well as overseas.
