Mark Donovan Wedding Photography

A little about me.

Telling stories through images is one of the reasons I became a specialist wedding photographer. The art of photography is something that has always fascinated me. For me, there is nothing more magical than capturing a beautiful moment and preserving it in an image that generations can enjoy forever.

Although I love capturing many different images, people have always been my favorite subjects.

It is this love and passion for capturing personal moments that fueled my decision to begin my wedding photography business in 2008. Since then, I have had the privilege of working with some fantastic couples to transform their big day into life long memories. I have enjoyed every minute of my photography work and can honestly say that I love my job.

I really believe that the best pictures happen in the moments where people are at ease and having fun. For every wedding, my main aim is to create relaxed, happy and natural images that tell the story of the day through the eyes of somebody who was there to witness it unfold.

I also aim to not only capture the over-all wedding itself, but the smaller, unnoticed moments that can prove to be the most magical.

I really appreciate and thank you for taking the time to have a look around my website. Photography truly is a massive passion in my life and I hope that comes through in my photographs.

If you like what you see, or if you have any questions, please get in touch via the contact form, my Facebook page or any of my numbers. I would be delighted to hear from you.
