My name is Mark Coombes Photography  and I run this with my wife Mairead. I am the photographer while Mairead does all the work behind the scenes.We live near Clonakilty in West Cork, Ireland and will travel nationally and internationally to document 'your special day'. I have been fortunate to win several International Awards not only in the wedding sector but picking up awards for Sport, Travel & Wildlife images also.
We have two wonderful children which is very helpful when interacting with children on the wedding day. We have a passion for travel and likes to photograph different cultures throughout the world having travelled to the Lower Omo Valley in Ethiopia to photography the local Hamar & Mursi tribes to India, Vietnam, China & Peru to experience their varied and wonderful cultures. I believe a natural and relaxed approach with camera in hand helps greatly getting those wonderful unguarded moments on a wedding day.
If you would like to discuss your wedding day plans with me I would love to hear from you and your ideas for 'Your Special Day' as no two weddings are the same. Each couple are unique, and their wedding day is unique to them and I would love to hear 'your story', just use the contact tab on home page to use your preferred means of communication.


"For those of you contemplating booking Karo Photography for your big day two words. Do It! I'd seen Mark’s work when my sister booked him for her wedding and I knew Mark Coombes was a must have. As soon as we got engaged and we started trying to pick a date, we actually planned our big day around Mark Coombes. It was important to us to get the best photographer, after all photographs last a life time.
His photos are amazing. We did have a pre wedding shoot with Mark and he was very facilitating; we rearranged this on numerous occasions due to weather conditions however we couldn't reschedule the big day. We had torrential rain the day of our wedding but this didn't impact our photographs it actually made them better and more unique. Mark went above and beyond the call of duty to get us the best shots. His calming influence really helped us to relax and enjoy the day. There was never an ounce of hesitation, he was drenched from the rain but keep the whole bridal party smiling.
Mark takes such a variety of photos on the day of the wedding we had the posed family shots, we had the fun shots, the relaxed shots and shots that are just natural. The hard work and dedication he puts into his work are reflected in the magnificent photographs he achieves. Mark is a one in a million photographer who exceeded our expectations; only down side is trying to pick the photos for our wedding album. No easy task when you have hundreds to choose from."
