James and I spent a long time looking at blogs, galleries, facebook and instagram before we contacted our shortlist of photographers. Martin sent me a few Southend Barns galleries to look at, that was it decision made.We received our pictures last night and it was like re living our Wedding day all over again. This is exactly what we wanted, a story book of our day.Some of our guests have commented 'we didn't even realise you had a photographer' - this is how well Martin fits into the day.

Martin produced far more than just photos of our wedding...
Martin produced far more than just photos of our wedding. He gave us a perfect photographic time capsule. His dry gently humour, unassuming manner, coupled with his utter professionalism and attention to detail enabled him to blend into the background and work his magic! The composition of our photos are superb, you can feel the love and laughter in each frame. Superb after service with images and album are the icing on the cake. Wonderful.

Martin was absolutely excellent...
Martin was absolutely excellent. Whenever I thought that would be an incredible photograph" he was right there behind me already on it. He was on every moment without being intrusive which allowed us to enjoy the day without having to pose. Therefore the photos acted as a story book of the day which is exactly what we wanted. He captured intimate moments without us even realising and the images sum up the personality of our day perfectly !"

The use of lighting...
The use of lighting, the unique style and the natural feel of the photos. It was breathtaking. He was not intrusive, even capturing our quiet moments when we thought we were alone! Looking through his photos, we could relive our special day, from my tears watching my wife-to-be walking down the aisle, the laughter while listening to the best men’s speeches to our “well-practised” first dance. His work was simply magical.

We are really pleased with our photos...
We are really pleased with our photos! They look amazing and really capture the feel of the day. They are beautiful photos which look great in our albums and in photo frames. On the day Martin was excellent, very patient, very easygoing and excellent at getting the right shot. He was very efficient at taking our posed shots which gave us plenty of time to enjoy the day! I'm thrilled that Martin has captured our special day so perfectly!

Martin was very professional...
Martin was very professional and had the unique knack of finding my good side when I didn't think I had one. His advice pre-wedding was very useful and his presence on the day was unobtrusive but tactical - managing to be at the key locations at the right times. In the end my wife, myself and our friends and family have a wonderful and beautiful collection of photos which represent the joy and togetherness in the individual moments of our wedding day.
