Award-winning photographer Ian Martin has photographed more than 500 weddings. As a photojournalist, he believes that the best photographs of any wedding are the spontaneous, unscripted ones that happen in real life. By being mindful and unobtrusive, he captures these slices of time creating a heartfelt record of the wedding occasion, a story told with photographs. Ian is also an accomplished portrait photographer and is happy to provide traditional wedding photography to augment his documentary style. Ian photographs weddings all over Northern California and beyond. Now in his eleventh year as a professional wedding photographer, most of Ian's weddings come from word of mouth referrals.

Ian is a true photojournalist. He is a Getty Images Grants for Editorial Photography winner and his work has appeared in a myriad of publications including Newsweek, The New Yorker and Rolling Stone.

I am so, so happy that my husband and I chose Ian Martin Wedding Photojournalism for our wedding photos. Ian was incredibly easy to work with, friendly, and, most importantly, super talented. I'm normally not a fan of having my photo taken, and he took the stress out of it all.

On to the photos: they were even better than what I was hoping for, and I had set a pretty high bar. Ian does no't overly photoshop anything, does not over-stage pictures, and has the ability to capture simply stunning shots. If we had to do our wedding all over again, we'd rebook him in a heartbeat - simple as that.

It was a big decision to choose a photographer for our wedding and I am so happy we went with Ian Martin. First of all, he was so easy going and accommodating with all our questions and worries. It was great that he was a photojournalist which we felt he really told a story rather than just taking pictures. What a story he told with the fantastic results! WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND him for your wedding or any event you may be planning! YOU WILL BE SO HAPPY YOU DID!!

We had a great experience with Ian. He did a great job of really capturing the fun and the happiness of our special day, and the photos are beautiful. I love the way he can capture the unplanned, unposed moments of the day that were so special. Plus, he got photos of pretty much everyone at our wedding so I can also send our guests lovely photos of themselves as well! Thanks so much Ian!

Ian is a very talented, professional, and courteous photographer! We were absolutely thrilled with the quality of the photographs by Ian Martin, and when I received the photos (early I might add!), I had a smile from ear to ear. Ian has a natural talent, and he makes you feel so comfortable in front of the camera that you forget the camera is there. I am a fairly camera shy person, and Ian made me feel so "myself" in front of the camera that he was able to capture very natural shots with ease! There are so many beautiful photos from my Wedding Day that I am having trouble picking which one to frame the biggest! He has a very unobtrusive style, which helps a Bride and Groom to remain "in the moment" while they enjoy their Wedding Day. Ian always responded quickly to any of my questions and was very courteous. He is a true professional!

Ian Martin was a true professional--he made us feel comfortable, made us laugh, and was super easy to be around. The photographs turned out so beautifully. He really captured the spirit of the day, as well as the beautiful environment of Pfeiffer Beach/Big Sur. We are having a VERY hard time choosing which photos to frame. We could have an entire wall of them, they're all so stunning!!

Working with Ian was absolutely fabulous. As a former wedding photographer myself, finding the perfect person to photograph my own wedding was very important. He was great at communicating with us during the planning process which really put our mind at ease since we were planning the wedding from across the world. Day of he had great energy and knew exactly where to be at the right moments. I could not be happier with my photos and my experience with Ian and I would highly recommend him.

Ian is incredible at capturing moments in incredible ways that can touch you back and really allow you to relive your special weekend. In addition to capturing moments as they happen, he also has great ideas for staging a shot that looks natural. He listens to what is important to you and delivers.

He provides every shot in black&white and color, all in 3 different resolutions and identifies his favorites which allows prompt use until you have time to look through all of the shots yourself. He was very responsive - would typically get a reply or call back within 24 hours if not same day.

Lastly, we really liked him as a person and enjoyed working with him.
