real moments, stunning portraits

Behind the lens:

Hi, I’m Martin

and I have been photographing weddings throughout Derbyshire for over ten years. My style is best described as a very natural and documentary type of wedding photography, ideal for couples who want to spend more of their day enjoying themselves and less about posing for the camera. I'll make sure all those special moments – like Dad seeing his daughter in her dress or Groom shedding joyful tears while walking down the aisle – are preserved. Plus, there will still be plenty pictures that everyone can hang on their wall and even Granny won't leave empty handed!

If you're looking for a great wedding photographer in Derby who is more like a friend with a camera than the ‘official photographer’ then I'm the go-to guy for you! Have a peek at my portfolio and judge me not by my words but my photos. If you’re loving what you see then let’s chat about how we can make your wedding photographs truly unforgettable.

It's been a tough battle to whittle down the thousands of wedding photographs I've taken across hundreds of weddings to just a handful. But here they are! I hope these signature images convey the natural, unobtrusive style I am well regarded in the Derbyshire area for and the sense of fun I bring to each and every wedding. One of the best compliments newlyweds can give me is that they barely noticed I was even there! That is music to my ears.
