About Mark

Hi I'm Mark, a professional wedding photographer from Belfast in Northern Ireland. I shoot weddings throughout the whole of Ireland, the UK and beyond.

I’m married to the wonderful Ruth. She has always been my best friend and works hard in making Mark Barton Photography run smoothly! We have two amazing boys who keep us full of life. When not shooting weddings, we can be found out and about on long walks and outdoor adventures.

I’ve had a camera in my hand for as long as I can remember and still regularly use my beloved Nikon FM2 film camera. I spent many an hour in the garden shed developing films!  My film background, along with many years of experience in commercial and advertising photography, has given me a vast experience in the industry and has seen my work featured in numerous blogs and magazines.

I love documenting weddings and capturing those unpredictable moments - the excitement, romance, tears of joy and beauty of the day. I love pictures that tell a story, and love that a camera can freeze a moment in time forever.

Your wedding photographs really mean a lot to me and I want them to look natural - no computer effects and filters, no unnatural poses that make you feel awkward - just beautiful timeless pictures that capture the real emotion, individuality, mood and atmosphere of your wedding day.

I’m not big into talking about myself so please take time and view my wedding photography gallery. If you like what you see, and want me to be part of your big day please feel free to get in touch.
