My name is Mark Coombes, I run Karo Photography 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.
