Mark Darrough is a dream wedding photographer. His sense of humor and laid back demeanor transferred to us, the bride and groom, on our wedding day. He made us feel so comfortable and in turn, was able to capture some truly authentic moments. When we had our daughter this past spring, we knew just who we wanted to document it. He has captured all of the special moments, from moments after her birth to her 6th month portraits this fall. Having a photographer that can capture your family at all moments of life is such a blessing and discovering that one person you can trust means the world. We will use Mark time and time again. Bonus, he is AWESOME with children, making those painful family photo sessions more fun than you dreamed possible. We cannot recommend him enough.Sent on 12/17/2020

Best photographer I've ever had
Mark shot Cassidy and I's engagement photos and we were blown away by the quality and beauty of the images. Mark made the whole process fun and also created some of the best imagery that I've seen out of engagement / wedding photos. I would recommend Mark to anyone!Sent on 12/16/2020

I live with my beautiful wife (and talented second shooter), Erin, and our English shepherd Wilson in a cool little bungalow neighborhood in Wilmington, NC. We love to kayak the rivers near Boone, boat with my bros and their wives on the Intracoastal, camp on Masonboro Island, drink Salty Dogs at Dockside while watching Clemson whoop up on some poor ACC foe (in football that is), and more than anything, hang with our families here in town and in Raleigh. If I'm not shooting weddings or portraits, I'm usually working on the journalistic side of life.
