Hi I’m Martin, a Swansea based wedding photographer, I mostly take pictures of people laughing and I love it.
Are you looking for natural, relaxed, unposed moments that tell the story of your day? Do you need some beautiful timeless images of the two of you, but also pictures of everyone around you laughing, smiling and having the best time?
When you think of wedding photography, what do you imagine? I see a day filled with love, happiness and emotion with a dash of crazy along the way. I see the look your proud parents give you. I see the moment you put your dress on and your heart starts beating faster. I see the look on his face when the best man really did say that !! I see the moment you are surrounded by your best friends on a packed dance floor having the party of your life.
