About Martin James Photography & Videography

If you’re reading this, then you’re probably curious to know how I became a wedding photographer.

Well, I was born in a little, sunny seaside town in the UK, back in the 80s. As a kid I was always dreaming, and thought I’d grow up to be an astronaut or something. But when I finally realised that NASA wasn’t going to come knocking, I got a job as a photographer for a local portrait photography company. That’s where I honed my trade, learning mainstream photographic skills and techniques for many years.

I did a few weddings, and I realised I actually enjoyed them. There was something about the variety of locations and everyone looking their absolute best which inspired me. But what got me hooked was the emotion. The elation, the tears, the joy. That was real life, real people, doing something so authentic. It doesn’t matter where you come from, what religion you are, whether you’re rich or poor – a wedding is universally human, and tradition in its purest form. Capturing all that on camera fascinated me, and it still does today.

    A photographer that can put even the most self conscious person at ease

    Martin covered both photography & vdeography for our wedding on 4th May 2019. Neither my husband nor I are comfortable being in front of the camera and it’s impossible to get a photo of my husband without a silly look on his face...or so i thought. Martin can work miracles! He instantly put us both at ease and managed to capture so many beautiful natural, relaxed and fun photos of us and our guests. The videographer that worked alongside Martin was very polite and the video he created was just magical. We were so excited to receive our photos and video and at times they had both been so discreet that we had no idea what to expect or what had been captured. When our photos and video arrived we were both left speechless, they are works of art! They captured the day perfectly and have enabled us to relive each special moment. Our guests were so impressed that many have asked for their details so I’m sure we’ll see lots more of Martin James in the future.

    Thank you!

    We couldn't have asked for a better photographer to capture our special day. Martin was amazing from the first meeting we had and we felt he got to know us and understand the type of pictures we were after. On the day it was great to have you around, very calm, very funny and really put us at ease, all my guests commented on how lovely he was and we were both so pleased with our photos which we absolutely love. Can't reccommend highly enough and would absolutely use again, thanks v much!! Becky ??????????????

    an absolute pleasure and amazing photographer

    It's hard to put into words how brilliant it was to have Martin as part of our special day. After getting to know us and discussing our day and what we had planned/created he captured the pure essence of our wedding. It was like having a friend with you the whole day. Since the wedding we have had so many guests say how brilliant, fun and engaging he was on the day. He made my husband and myself so comfortable the entire time. He was calm and very much in control of the whole thing. We couldn't have asked for a better outcome with the pictures and every time we look back at them we really do re-live the best day of our lives. He is a credit to the photography world and anyone who uses him for their big day will definitely not be dissapointed. Martin i cannot thank you enough.
