I haven't seen such beautiful wedding pictures in many a year, Mark you have mad skills. I especially like the way you made every effort to get just the right shot. It was a pleasure working with a photographer of your caliber.

Hi Mark,
I went through your wedding galleries and was quite impressed with your work. I check out a lot of photographers websites. Some are great and some are hacks. You are among the great.

Ralph Anderson / Magic Light Photography

Mark is such a wonderful photographer. He is very talented and creative. He put his heart and soul in his work. We had such an amazing experience with him. He took so many pictures of us and we loved every single one of them. He was so easy to work with. He captured all the details that we were expecting to see in our special moments. We could not ask for more. We are so happy with the result and we highly recommend him!

Mark's sense of composition and poetry of subject is excellent ...................... as good as the best living artists.

Your work is both masterful and inspiring. I truly hope there will be an opportunity to work together some day.

JC Murillo / Photographer, Virginia

I am so happy that you were the photographer for my daughter Lara Handler’s wedding. All the photographs as well as the slide show you created were beyond beautiful. You captured the beauty and joy of the day. You are a real artist!
Please feel free to use me as a reference for any future clients. I will refer anyone I meet to you because I cannot praise your work enough.

Susan Janney / Potomac, MD

Mark,
The pictures are amazing! I can't believe how great they look. Again, thank you both so much for your great work on our wedding day.

Jennifer & Matt / Annapolis, MD

I recently attended my best friend's wedding in St. Michael's at the Inn at Perry Cabin (Jen & Matt Albanese) and I called her last night to see if any of her pictures were online. WOW! Your photography is absolutely stunning. I live in KY, but after seeing your pictures, I want to get married in Maryland! Seriously, I was in awe as I looked at those photos...you are truly talented and I just wanted to let you know that I think your work is amazing. My father was a photographer as well, so I know how passionate one can be about it...it definitely shows in your work.

Rachel Lowery / Shepherdsville, Kentucky

I received the Mark's pictures at my parent's home on Friday. They are wonderful!

Saleena Sidhu / VP Marketing Saratoga Medical Center, New York, NY 10016

We absolutely LOVE the pictures. You are an amazing photographer. Especially given how little time we actually spent on pictures, you captured so many great shots. I love the black & white, as well as the different wide angles and perspectives. We have the black & white picture you took of us walking hand-in-hand back to the bus by the Lincoln Memorial in a silver frame in our living room. Everyone has commented on how great our pictures came out! You have my highest recommendation!!!

Mia &Kyle Reini / NW Washington, DC

What a Team! Mark and Laurel are superb! Mark took the most beautiful shots of our Wedding at the Inn at Perry Cabin, and our Friends and Family (some of whom are Photographers) are raving!

Mark and Laurel took the time to get to know us, in person, prior to our Wedding, and knew exactly how we wanted our Special Day to be captured. In addition, they had some wonderful ideas of their own, which resulted in more beautiful shots! We trusted them, immensely!

We can't wait to see all of our Photos, and will continue to use Mark Lovett Photography for all of our Special Events in our Lifetime!

Nicole and Garrison Cox / Bethesda, MD

Thank you so much for the beautiful photography! The album is such a treasure and your photographs truly capture the excitement of the day: I can’t help but smile every time I look through the pictures! Also, thanks so much for the DVD! We love it, and it was so thoughtful of you to send it!

Sarah and Brian / Bethesda,MD

I am really impressed with your talents. The pictures are some of the best wedding pictures that I have seen. I like how the group shots are very natural, yet everyone is standing in the right place, creating perfect angles. Wonderful use of colors. I have never praised a photographer before, but I had never seen work like yours. I enjoyed your guitar performances and oil portraits.

DJ Bill / Billyzee.com

Mark did an excellent job with our engagement pictures. Both he and his wife made the time talking the pictures so relaxing and a fun experience. The pictures turned out amazing!

Monica & Chris / Bethesda,MD

Thank you so much for the beautiful picture of Elise! Gil showed it to me last night and I can't believe how amazing it is- it was so hard to get a decent photo in that gym! You are such a great photographer! We will treasure it always:)

Chris Lovett / Bethesda, MD

It may be cliche, but it's true... A picture is worth a thousand words and the pictures we got back from Mark Lovett Studio scream 'amazing' a thousand times! We had the privilege of having Mark Lovett shoot our engagement photos for our save-the-date cards going out to friends and family, and we couldn't be happier!

It isn’t just the photos, though the photos are certainly very beautiful; it is how Mark and Laurel do business that makes working with them such an awesome experience. You get the feeling of a comfortable family experience with quality studio results.

Mark and Laurel were completely flexible in their time and eager to be a part of this special day with us. Mark even trudged through the snow to get the perfect shots!

Just one look around their family home and studio and you can see that Mark truly has the passion and talent for art, and Mark’s wife, Laurel, is both welcoming and professional.

We can't wait until the next opportunity to work with Mark Lovett Studio, and would recommend them without hesitation to anyone considering a photo session or oil painting!

“I love photographing children, families, creating business portraits and  pageant portraits.  I just love to have fun with people when working. It makes all the difference. Natural light is beautiful and I love using it. I also get very creative with off camera flash strobe light which I use in my studio or at your location.  I keep posing to a minimum, and strive to capture a real and beautiful moment in time with soft natural light.  When I do help with posing we keep it natural and loose.

I’m also very fortunate to have the finest state-of-the-art professional photography gear and digital imaging software available that allow me to capture the finest images ….. even in very low light! I have a wonderful wife, Laurel, who helps me in the business and two almost grown children, three brothers, nieces and nephews. Thank God everyone is healthy and both my parents are still around. I am fortunate to have been with my wife for over 20 years, and she is a huge help to me in my photography, painting, and life in general.

I’m one of those rare natives of suburban DC, and a graduate of the University of Maryland. My great grandfather was a judge, my grandfather was an attorney, my father is an attorney and I’m an artist/photographer/guitarist/computer programmer. Go figure! My favorite hobby is playing guitar. I love finger picking an acoustic guitar!I used to play professionally around town for years and still teach a little bit.  That pretty much sums it up….. I could go on forever but I wont bore you anymore 🙂  My measure of success is your satisfaction and recommendation!
