HOW IT ALL BEGAN

Nottingham & Derby Wedding Photographer – Martin Cheung

Whilst I’d always enjoyed taking photographs of friends & family, I never planned to join the growing ranks of wedding photographers in Derbyshire & Nottinghamshire.  It was after friend’s of mine received their wedding photos back from their official photographer. They sat with me and showed me their pictures and asked me what I thought. I tried to be enthusiastic but they admitted they didn’t like them and preferred the snaps which I had taken as a guest. To add insult to injury it had taken them nearly five months to get them from their photographer. Even then they had to threaten legal action before they got anywhere.

It was at this point I realised that I could do it better. I would do it better. It was a decision which involved me investing a lot of time and money getting myself to the stage where I could perform at a professional level. However it is also a decision I only wished I’d made earlier!

I still smile today at my good fortune to truly find a job which I adore and love the job satisfaction of delivering memories for my customers that they will cherish.

ABOUT ME

Hi, I’m Martin. I am a Nottingham wedding photographer based near Derby with my wife and 3 children. When I’m not photographing, I spend my time with my family and watching Game of Thrones (Team Daenerys!) and The Walking Dead.

I started capturing these beautiful moments about 6 years ago. I always loved taking pictures of friends and family and one day I attended a friends wedding, where I happily snapped away. Afterwards, the bride told me just how much she loved the pictures I had taken, and from there I decided to pursue my passion. Things have snowballed and now I photograph over 60 weddings a year!

I love nothing more than capturing the fun, natural photographs of a wedding day. I know it’s a real cliche to say that wedding photography isn’t just a job for me, it’s a passion. But it really is the truth, I really do love it!
