  • "What struck me was his effortless natural style."
    This testimonial was entered by Martin J Sylvester on 26 September 2019

    "I came across Martin, through dgtl Couture, on hitched as a top recommended photography service, from the minute I clicked on them I absolutely loved his work. What struck me was the effortless, natural and in-the-moment style of photography, in addition to the editing style of his pics it was just what I was looking for! When I met him he was so down to earth, listened to everything I had to say (even though I left most of it to him as the expert) I was amazed by how many extravagant ideas he could come up with having just met me & my husband and only knowing the main details of my wedding. As a result he made my photos the best they could possibly be! I 100% recommend this guy, he is so talented and will make whatever your occasion look even more incredible than it is in real life. Very approachable and promptly answers any question you may have. He captured every detail beautifully but without you even noticing – resulting in the best photographs!" - from my lovely couple, Savannah & Ryan

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the price of your service?

My pricing ranges from £400 - £1300. This is dependent on the duration you would like me to be at the wedding and covers travel & editing costs.

What services do you offer?

Wedding Photography, Engagement Party Shoots, Pre - wedding couple shoot, "Trash the Dress" or post wedding shoots

What does the wedding package include?

High Quality Edited images starting from 250 images. Permanent Online Gallery for easy sharing. Consultation meeting. Weddings in Zones 1-3 in London - travel costs included in final price. Guaranteed delivery of images within 3-4 weeks of wedding.

How far in advance should I contact you?

As long in advance as you'd like. Ideally at least 3 months before your wedding, but completely understand some couples leave this to the last minute. So minimum is 1 month before.

Do you cover more than one wedding a day?

No. I like to spend time getting to know each couple I book. And never want to be in a situation where my focus is spread too thin.

Are you able to travel?

Not at this time. Perhaps in the future. There are always exceptions to the rule though. If you're wedding is on a Weekday or Saturday and easy to get to from the closest city/ town, I may be able to make it there and back.

What kind of equipment do you use?

Sony Alpha cameras are my weapon of choice. The knowledge that I will always capture those fleeting moments gives me peace of mind. Using the Eye AF technology is a true revolution. Other camera makers have now caught up, but none are as accurate as Sony (in my opinion). Depending on your size of budget I either use the Sony A7RIII or the Sony A7III. Also optional, for the couple shoot I can bring portable studio strobes (flash).

What''s the delivery time for photographic report?

I typically aim to send a sample gallery 1 - 2 weeks from the date of wedding. And aim to finish all the best images approximately in 3 - 4 weeks.

Do you send all the photos taken?

No. Simply as I send only the best images. Sometimes though, I will send a quick succession of images. For example, from the confetti throw, rather than sending a couple, I'll often send my favourite 10-15. As its fun to see the reactions from the various family members and loved ones as they throw the confetti.

Do you work alone or do you have a team of professionals?

I work alone. If a second photographer is desired it will be an additional fee, enquire to find out more.

What are the forms of payment?

I ask for 50% upfront to secure the booking. Then one month before the wedding I ask for 25% and then finally when the images are fully ready I ask for the remaining balance. I deliver the sample gallery beforehand. But no work will be delivered in final form until full payment is received.
