She was a very energetic woman who pops up a lot in her daughter's biography.

No, she said it was Bertram Park. He was a contemporary of Marcus Adams and Cecil Beaton.

From the NPG: "Having started in the family firm, manufacturers of artist's materials, Park developed an interest in photography and became a professional portraitist. He was a founder member of the London Salon of Photography in 1910. Park set up studios on Dover Street, London with Marcus Adams and his wife Yvonne Gregory in 1919. He was successful, being obliged to have up to five sittings a day to satisfy the demand. He photographed the British Royal Family, and his reputation was such that various European crowned heads would come annually to his studio to be photographed. His stylish and beautifully composed portrait studies more often relied on dramatic lighting than on elaborate backgrounds."

He took many well-known royal portraits, including that of the 4 sons of GV, Wallis in her court presentation dress, the well-known shot of of Marina, Olga and Elizabeth and others:

Mary Evans (of the Mary Evans Picture Library) wasn't a photographer. She was a collector who founded her own picture library to lend images out for publication. She only died in 2010.

I see. Marina and her cousins also used a photographer in Paris for their bridal shots. Not sure of the studio and name. I only know that both Sophie & Wooley had their wedding shots there...

Very interesting. Maybe Aspasia wasn't that much of a commoner as we long suspected. At least she seem to have more royal blood that Kate Middleton. Or Prince Nicholas of Greece's future bride.
