Hi there! I'm Martina. I am a wedding photographer based in San Diego, CA. However I am always ready for an adventure and ready to travel in the name of love!
I love being able to capture the story of two individuals on their big day. I love being able to connect personally with each and every one of my clients. I want to ensure that their day is as special as they envisioned it. I am simply there to capture the moment, without taking away from it.
I know there are so many amazing photographers out there, I’m so honored you chose me as one of them to reach out to. I truly hope you felt a connection towards my images, attracted to my artistic and authentic approach and will enjoy my outgoing + down to earth personality. This is the day you marry your best friend, the person of dreams + your life partner, you deserve nothing but the best. I look forward to hearing from you!
I can't say enough wonderful things about Martina. She is not only a fabulous photographer but also such a genuinely joyful and creative person! After I contacted her to inquire about wedding photography, she quickly responded to set a date to get together. It was great to meet her in person to answer each other's questions and to get to know each other. I was confident that Martina would be able to capture the essence of our wedding perfectly, and I was right. I was impressed that she did not miss a moment despite being the only photographer at our wedding. Her friendly demeanor put everyone at ease and allowed her to capture moments that were candid and natural. Thank you for sharing our wedding day with us, Martina.
Martina is an absolute dream come true in terms of a photographer. My fiance hired her to capture our engagement and said she was extremely easy to work with and that her communication was great. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE the photos - they are stunning and framed all over our home. They've even been featured on multiple wedding accounts! She had selects over to us to share with our family and friends within 24 hours of the engagement and an album FULL of photos sooner than we expected. She was so positive and laid back - and made our day extra special. We can't thank you enough Martina!!
I really can't thank Martina enough! I met her through a mutual friend who is a wedding planner (she gave me multiple options but highly recommend Martina above all). For my proposal, I didn't have much planned but a time and a general location. After talking to Martina about my rough idea, she really showed her expertise and put my mind to ease that everything would work out perfectly. She helped me work out an ideal timeline for the proposal that I couldn't have executed without her. The best part was that she did pre-work to scout out the location I chose, and found the perfect spot. She was in constant communication with me leading up to the big day and really helped me keep my mind at ease. On the day of, she came ready with props and friends to help plan the surprise and make it seem more natural. After everything went down, she stayed for almost 2 hours to capture amazing pictures of us. She made sure to get many different poses and many different angles/lighting which made my fiance so happy. I'm not one for a photo shoot, but was surely more than thankful after she sent over the final album. Her turn around was very quick too! She sent us about 20 pictures to share with friends and family that same night which were top quality, and the greater album that followed within a week was the icing on the cake. I still can't say enough about her work! Her pictures are so good they have been circulating on different Instagram handles like shesaidyes and weddingwire! If you're in SD, Martina is your go to. If you're not in SD and can afford to get her to wherever you are, do it! She is a phenomenal photographer, but also a friend! Thank you Martina! My fiance still cries over you work a month later!
Martina is an amazing photographer. My fiance and I were in a bind trying to have a small wedding ceremony with just our parents during COVID and our initial photographer couldn't make it. Martina was quick to respond to our request and was available the following week. She arrived early and was able to capture pictures of us setting up. Martina was great at positioning us in flattering poses, taking consideration of all lighting and angles and got all of the shots we wanted with our family. We received sneak peeks in a couple hours and the full portfolio just a little bit after that. In just over 1 hour we got over 300 pictures. Truly amazing! Will be using her for all of our future photo opportunities and recommending her to all our friends.
My husband and I had the most amazing experience with Martina. She made us feel comfortable and captured the absolute best moments of our day. She was easy to talk to, very nice and we loved that she positioned us and told us what to do to make the picture perfect. Once we received our whole album we were blown away. Her work is amazing, and the pictures turned out better than we could have ever imagined!
My experience with Martina was simply amazing ! I was extremely nervous on planning the proposal but Martina made sure everything came out perfect. She went above an beyond to make my proposal go smoothly! Who else’s would drive to borrego springs at 3am to be there for a Sunrise proposal , only Martina! Thank you Martina for making my proposal special for my fiancé and I. I can’t wait for you to be part of our wedding !
