“We enjoyed the photo session quite a bit. Mark is professional, kind and relaxing. He and Laurel made us feel welcome. The pictures are great. We will be giving them to family and friends.”
Marion Thompson

“After trying to get by with selfies, I decided, with some pushing from my closest friends and family, to uplevel the image that I am posting on LinkedIn and other business sites. The photos that Mark Lovett took are me on my best day. I am so pleased to have a professional image that I can show the world. I tend to be stiff and unnatural when posing for a photo, but Mark was able to get me to laugh and relax so that these pictures really do look like me. Many thanks Mark.”

Barbara Kreling

“I needed headshots for my new work place and found Mark’s studio through Google searches. The whole process turned out to be very satisfactory and enjoyable. Mark was friendly, responsible, and professional. Although it says I needed to wait 4 to 5 days for the initial photos, he sent them to me the next day. He was also fast in delivering the finished photos. In my case he worked on the photo retouches on a holiday, which I did not expect and appreciated it very much. Of course the most important thing is that the headshots do look great!! I can’t wait to use them!”
Lingling Zhang

“Mark is an artist!!!”
Carlos Tavares

“Mark Lovett’s services are priceless! At the very last minute, my family decided to look for a professional photographer to take pics of our large extended family gathering together to surprise my mom for her 80th birthday. Mark and his wife were quick to call us and fit us into their schedule immediately for the following weekend. At the photo session, they expertly worked with our large family that included 8 children ranging in age from 9 months to 11 years old. They took pictures for the entire hour, patiently posing the kids and adults and trying varying angles to get the best shots. By Monday , Mark and his wife Laurel edited and uploaded the shots to an online gallery and by Thursday we received a CD of all the digital images! The pictures were beautiful and Mark and his wife Laurel were spectacular to work with -THANK YOU!”
Angela Philbin

“Mark was phenomenal. The pictures turned out great and I would definitely go back. Also, very affordable compared to the competition. Great value.”
Chase Nussbaum

“Mark’s photography work is actually much more than photography. Some may not know that Mark is also an incredible oil painter, musician and web site designer. Everything Mark does is beautifully creative. He doesn’t just take photos. He takes the subject and, somehow, makes it as beautiful and interesting as one of his unique paintings. Truly, Mark is an artist and it shows in everything he does. If you engage him for a “head shot,” you will be ecstatic with the quality of the finished product.”
Faith Lovett

“In the past, I’ve had so many bad experiences with photographs and photographers that having my picture taken is like going to the dentist. But, Mark Lovett and Laurel Lovett made the whole experience easy and effortless. Mark is an artist as well as a photographer, so he knows how to capture the best portrait. The photo shoot was done efficiently, and he edited the photos in one day. Somehow he was able to make my whole face glow and enhanced the photos to make me go, “Wow!” I’d never seen myself look that good before! I didn’t have to go back and ask him to do anything else to touch up the photos. And that’s a first! They were just so perfect. He is definitely my favorite photographer of all time!”
Alice Lee

“My partner and I had our law firm’s business head shots taken by Mark and we are thrilled. Our photos are professional, natural and exactly what we wanted. I chose Bethesda Headshots because Mark captures the personality of his clients without his clients looking posed or over processed. He didn’t disappoint. We cannot recommend this studio enough and we will definitely send our friends and colleagues their way. Thank you again.”
M. Christina Hamilton

Really well use of my time and he made sure I was happy with the outcome before he let me go. I will definitely come back again for more pictures and would suggest him to anybody!”
Christopher Arroyo

“I had such a great experience with Bethesda Headshots. The whole process (from scheduling to choosing the final images) was really efficient and seamless, which made my life easier. Mark made me feel super comfortable during the session itself. He also spent extra time with me to make sure I was happy with the selections. In the end, I was so happy with my images; he helped me look great! Both him and his wife were so nice and warm! I would highly recommend them to my friends and family.”

“Mark is a gem! You’d be hard pressed to find a friendlier, more accommodating photographer. And he’s professional, prompt, and dedicated too! We recently engaged Mark’s photography expertise, for our grassroots political campaign, and were pleasantly surprised at his keen artistic eye & his devotion to excellence. The turnaround for the photos was very fast, and out of the shots that we have from five different photographers, Mark’s photos are the best, by far!”

“Mark, and his lovely Assistant (and wife!), Laurel, captured our wedding day at The Inn at Perry Cabin in St. Michaels, Maryland, so magnificently. In addition, Mark and Laurel exudes the utmost of professionalism, as well as being the most gracious and kindest of people. They truly enhanced our wedding day through their photography, but also by being there and sharing in our special moments.

We reflect upon our photos often, which Mark captured so appropriately, beautifully, and expertly. He took the time to meet with us and familiarize himself with our personalities. He absolutely understood our wish of an intimate and elegant wedding and his pictures accurately reflect this. He knew just how to seize the special moments shared between ourselves and our family and friends, as well as the beauty of The Inn and its surroundings. Mark truly captured the essence of our wedding through his wonderful, artful, and skillful work.

Thanks to Mark Lovett Photography, we have the most delightful lasting memories of our wedding. We highly recommend his services for your special photography needs.
Thank you, Mark and Laurel – you are both very special people, indeed!”
With Love,

“My husband and I contracted with Mark Lovett to take photos of our 40th wedding anniversary. We were extremely pleased! Mark arrived with his wife, Laurel and engaged our entire family in the photo shots. We were a large group (4 daughters and their families) and Mark included each member of the family in special shots and poses. The only problem? We have so many great photos that it’s difficult to choose which ones to include in our album. I highly recommend them.”
Margaret M.

“Mark did an AMAZING set of headshots and dance photos for our daughter for her recent audition. He was able to fit us in, worked amazingly with her using different angles and got really PERFECT photos. Our photos were standouts! We substituted them for her school pictures since they actually captured her. I highly recommend Mark (and Laurel) – we will never use anyone else for family photos or head shots!”

“We recently had a family portrait done as a Christmas gift, and the portrait was stunning. We had a photo shoot with Mark, and used one of the images to create a digital portrait, which we then framed. In addition, the photo shoot provided us with many other photos that we used as additional Christmas gifts for family members. We would highly recommend Mark Lovett Studio.”
