Portrait Photography

Wedding Photography

a little about me

I’m Martin Strivens I was awarded ABIPP, and I’ve made photography a way of life. My passion is creating pictures that reflect, the romance, the spontaneity and joy of your special day, but such pictures don’t just happen – it takes a lot of experience, knowledge and a keen eye. I believe inspiration is helped by sound preparation. Also being awarded Associate of the British Institute of Professional Photography, I’m among the select few whose talent and experience has been endorsed by my peers. Photography is not regulated, which means anybody can buy a camera, charge £250 and ruin someones wedding day, that is why I, as a serious professional photographer, believe that we should self regulate, which is why I joined the BIPP. Please get in touch, I’d love to hear from you about your wedding day and see how we can help capture those special images.

some recent work

Now and again, I’ll upload some of my recent work here from a wedding or a portrait shoot just some of my favourite images and I’d love to here what you think, so please have a look and get in touch.

Instagram Feed

I love Instagram. A lot of the images on here are taken with my iPhone, mixed in with my professional shots, it’s the equivalent of the old box brownie, a take anywhere camera, I’ve always got it in my pocket and though the quality isn’t always going to be the best, it’s a great visual reminder.
