We met Martin during our search for our wedding photographer about a year before our event as a recommendation. He was friendly, personable and flexible (especially with our busy work schedules). I didn't know much about wedding planning, but Martin even helped with laying out a timeline for us! His style of work was exactly what we were looking for. Our engagement photoshoot was so much more fun than we had expected. We had heard some stories from friends of dreary and long sessions. But Martin made us feel so comfortable and threw in so many jokes that we had so many candid photos of us laughing and enjoying each other. We highly encourage everyone to do the engagement session with Martin because all of his cues and directions will be so familiar on the wedding day, it'll be a big time saver! Our families and friends absolutely loved our engagement photos, we got so many compliments. On the wedding day, Martin was punctual (even early). Our wedding day photos were even more fantastic. With his assistant, we were able to get so many different sessions fit in even on the busy day. Even with the time pressure, Martin stayed calm, professional and genuinely happy to capture us during the "golden hour." Martin was quick in getting us our beautiful photos to us after the wedding. We can't believe we have more than 500 photos picked out. His photo delivery system is so simple that with a few clicks, you can view your gallery or download them. We're having so much trouble trying to pick out which ones to hang up in our house. We had a great experience for a great price for excellent quality work. We would recommend him to anyone looking for a photographer!Sent on 06/05/2018

First of all, Martin is a family friend I knew from way back so we rekindled and caught up! Martin had a plethora of experience dealing with weddings so he was able to give us so much advice with wedding planning as well. He was very flexible meeting in person to get to know each other. He was very professional, friendly, funny and as well as his assistant (Matt). We met with him and his assistant and they ensured us in the case Martin would not be able to make it for some reason his assistant would be more than skilled to get the job done. Ideally it would be best for both of them to be there to be able to capture the most optimal shots. And which both were able to show up for the big day.Sent on 01/23/2018
During the engagement session Martin did a great job with making it very enjoyable and fun even though it was a pretty warm and long day. I've heard from friends that had pretty strenuous and almost dreadful experiences during their sessions. But Martin was great facilitating all the logistics and making jokes on how awkward I was taking pictures. I'm sure most of us want pictures quick to use it for invitations and he sure did deliver quick. We got our pictures within a week in our emails. The email allows you access it for month, to look at and download for anyone with password access for anyone. After that you would have to pay additional subscription to continue to look at. Simply, all you have to do is download it to your choice of storage.
All the way up to the wedding Martin kept in touch to help with wedding planning. Martin and his assistant was punctual and came ready to catch the best shots. During the big day they put in some hard work, but enjoyed all the moments with us and the guests. The wedding pictures were ready and sent in about two months. There were about 500 pictures that were picked and edited out of almost thousand. Overall a great experience, great price, and amazing product!
