Mark Hopkins is a San Diego Wedding Photographer based in Carlsbad.

Hi and welcome to my website. I am Mark Hopkins and I've been photographing weddings and events since 1998. In fact I have photographed over 350 weddings

and events since then, plus a few hundred engagement sessions and family portrait sessions. I've been one of the top 10 wedding photographers in San Diego

since 2001. My wedding photography is a blend of fashion, lifestyle, editorial and landscape photography with a focus on telling a visual story of your

wedding day. My wedding photography is real and unrehearsed. The photographs you will see here are of real brides, real grooms and real weddings,

not models photographed in the desert made-up to look like brides and grooms at a wedding with no guests--in the middle of the Mojave.


With a background in photojournalism, film, fashion-lifestyle and product photography, I have the skill set and tools that make for the perfect modern day

wedding photographer. Which basically means the best wedding and event photographers are good at photographing food, details, fashion, editorial,

landscape, interiors, and have the ability to work under pressure and do it fast. My philosophy is to photograph your wedding as a journalist and to

be unobtrusive as possible, however during the formals my background in fashion and lifestyle photography kicks into gear. And if that isn't enough

hats to wear, I am now also shooting short video clips throughout your wedding day. Enough video to give you a 3-5 minute highlight

video of your wedding day. That's your modern day wedding photographer.
