Mark Avellino Weddings

Welcome to Mark Avellino Weddings.

Congratulations you've taken the first step to having a memorable day.


I love to capture the intimate moments, details and range of emotions that make up your wedding day.

When you meet me I want to know all about the things that are important to you such as; THE dress, what colour dresses are the brides maids wearing, do you have a theme for the day, what things are important to you as a couple and what locations and why have you chosen them for your photography. Do they have meaning for you as a couple?

For me, shooting weddings is as much about capturing your day as it is about the final product delivered to you months later. At Mark Avellino Weddings I like to blend the relaxed illustrative style of photography with the formal traditions of shooting weddings to achieve photo's which truly depict the essence of your day whilst also ensuring all the key life moments are recorded for posterity.

I like to make the experience a fun one and very much view the day as a collaboration between us so that the images we create will form part of each family’s collective memory, passed down to generations and may be used in the future to form a slideshow, be enlarged or created into an heirloom Wedding Album.

After all, great images are created through having a trusting partnership with your Photographer.

Choosing a Wedding Photographer can be a daunting task. You may not realise it now, but once the occasion has come and gone the images we produce will form part of your lasting memory of a magnificent day.

My image of Jenna and Daniel running through the cloisters at the University of Melbourne is a great symbol of everything I aim for with my weddings, fun, relaxed and distinctive.

  • Right from the beginning when we were researching for a photographer we came across Mark on the internet. The first thing that captured us to his business was a photo he had of a married couple in front of a tram in Melbourne. We thought that was so unique (even though we didn’t have our wedding in Melbourne) Within 30 mins after requesting a quote Mark rang and had a quick discussion about our requirements etc and booked us in to come and see him and at that point we felt really comfortable with him as he took the time to get to know us and we thought it was quite exciting to go with a photographer who hadn’t done a wedding in Geelong before as we would be the first and he would have fresh eyes to look at locations along the waterfront for pictures on the day. During our wedding day when he came to our apartments, he was professional right from the word go, was never pushy let us do our thing and when it was time for a certain pic he would let us know. During the whole ceremony/ reception we didn’t even know he was there, never in our face and captured great moments for us that we are going to treasure for the rest of our lives. I would soooooo recommend Mark to anyone if its for your wedding or just for a special occasion, you will get the best service for your day and wont be disappointed. We will definitely be using Mark again if the time comes for us to have a family of our own 🙂
