Martin will capture the magic, the little details and unscripted moments that tell the story of your wedding day! Your wedding photographs will bring back all the joy, fun and emotion of a very special day in your life. 
As an experienced professional photographer Martin has built an enviable reputation for a relaxed and flowing style, tailored to produce truly gorgeous, natural wedding photographs. I deliver a very personal story for each and every client.

Where are you located? Do you charge a travel fee for weddings not in your location?

Located on the Central South Wales Coast, with good access for West Wales, South West of England and the Cotswolds.

How long have you been in business? How many weddings have you photographed as the main photographer?

Established in 1978, we have gained a lot of experience and knowledge in that time. However our excitement for learning new techniques and using cutting-edge equipment is constant. We want you to be just as excited as we are about taking part in creating great images!

Describe your "style" of wedding photography.

Gorgeousness Guaranteed! We have a relaxed and flowing shooting style, developed from many years experience of photographing people professionally. It is influenced by our life experiences too, from our interests in everything from music, travel, the arts and nature. We hope that you find a connection with our style of photography, and that photography is important to you – we are not copycat photographers. We strive to produce something valuable, creative and unique for every client. If you appreciate great imagery then be prepared and excited to be part of that process.

What's the typical wedding coverage package that you offer? What is the price?

Our standard All-Day collection included coverage for up to 10 hours, two photographers and a complimentary preWedding Photoshoot. You will receive 400 - 600 fully edited images for your personal use, i.e. sharing and printing. We have gorgeous handmade album collections and extended coverage available too. Also there are options for small weddings and off-peak wedding dates,

Do you have a studio where we can meet? Do you use Skype?

We have a studio in Porthcawl where you are welcome to talk through your wedding plans and view our slideshow and wedding albums. For those that live further afield you are welcome to arrange a Skype or FaceTime chat.

What are your professional degrees, credentials, affiliations? Have you taken any recent educational workshops or classes?

Trained at a classical Art College, Martin went on to gain Chartered Designer status. Followed by achieving Associateships of both the Master Photographers Association and British Institute of Professional Photography.

Is there anything else you'd like to share about yourself?

Jules and I met at a South Devon school barn party in the 70’s, although it may have been the bottle of red that I had in my duffle coat pocket that first attracted her! We got married and have two kids. Our daughter got married a couple of Summers ago and lives and works in Sydney. Our son is living in Melbourne, so we have to travel a long way to give them a hug! Still, it’s a nice excuse to visit regularly. We enjoy surfing every good swell, good tunes, visiting new places and would love to be part of your big day!
