Kim J Martin Photography is a wedding photography studio specializing in engagement and wedding photography, aka photographing people in love! I love meeting new people and capturing life!

I genuinely care about the stories I tell because I have always wanted to document my own life. I have albums and albums full of pictures, and every single one is equivalent to pages of written word.

A wedding is one of the biggest, most exciting stories in someone's life. Check out my recent work and my website, and if you would like me to tell your story I would love to hear from you! Read less

There's not enough words to describe how amazing Kim is. She is by far the most professional, fun, and flexible photographer I have ever worked with. I fell in love with her style when I saw her work. She was the first vendor I chose and even made sure my wedding day worked for her, otherwise I would have changed it. I just got my photo gallery and I just cried. she captured every moment and I was like I was living it all over again. Her work will forever be hung throughout my home and couldn't be happier. Thank you so much Kim.

Kim is fabulous! Our engagement photos turned out beautifully, and she was great to work with at our wedding. We got married at Vizcaya, and she knew all the perfect places to shoot. We can't wait to see the photos after she edits them.

I definitely recommend Kim as your wedding photographer; she is awesome!

LOVE Kim! She took our engagement and wedding photos and we are so happy with the results! She's great to work with and she even made my husband, who hates having his picture taken, enjoy the process. Can't wait to have another occasion so we can have Kim document it!

I found Kim J Martin's services through a random Google search. I was struck by how beautiful her brides looked in every picture, how the colors popped and the lovely non-traditional backgrounds. When I met her I was so pleased that her personality was as wonderful as her photos! My husband and I were thrilled with both our engagement and wedding photos. Kim is so, so easy to work with. Super fun and kind and she is just so talented! From exciting party pics to subtle beautiful moments, Kim captured them all. The best surprise was that on the day Kim kept us totally on schedule. It is so easy for the day to get away from you, but Kim made sure we didn't miss a thing. Thanks so much Kim!! I cannot recommend your services enough!

I had been following Kim's blog for about a year before I got engaged. I've always loved her fresh style and I knew that I wanted her to be our photographer when the time came. I am so happy that she was available to do our pictures!

Our engagement session was so much fun. She put us at ease and made it such an enjoyable experience! No awkward poses. No fake smiles. Just a lot of fun and laughter and love. I was kinda sad when the session was over. The pictures turned out amazing!

Since my husband and I decided on a small wedding, I really wanted a photographer that could capture the feeling of the day so that we could share them with people we weren't able to invite. On the day of the wedding, she made sure that we stayed on time while still getting a lot of amazing photos. Since our wedding was just last week, I've only seen about 30 pictures. But they are beyond my expectations! She did exactly when I wanted and so much more! She definitely has a gift. I love every one of them and I am SO excited to see the rest. Kim has been so prompt about getting the pictures edited and ready for us to see. I am VERY happy with Kim and I would recommend her in a second!

Kim is AWESOME! She came all the way from Sacramento to our house in Walnut Creek just to meet us and from that day on she was not just our wedding photographer, but she became a friend. Her photos are beautiful and professionalism is only surpassed by her personality. There is no question we will use her again for other family photo opportunities!

We were looking for a wedding photographer in a city where we don’t know anyone, so I called and emailed a dozen photographers who had stellar reviews. Some of them referred me to others, and eventually I had contacted ~20 wedding photographers. I’m white and my then-fiancé is black, so we really wanted someone with experience photographing weddings of couples with markedly different skin tones. Kim sent us a link to her blog showing specific examples, rather than offering vague statements about lighting. She wasn’t the least expensive (nor was she the most expensive) but she was my favorite and my fiancé’s favorite. Her pictures look real and fresh, and she seemed to capture fun at the reception. A friend who is a wedding photographer also voted for her as the top choice from our final three. She was very flexible and helpful: she helped put us in touch with other vendors, and she visited our location to ensure we selected the ceremony direction that would offer the best lighting. She was accommodating without being a pushover. Since we didn’t end up having the engagement session until a month before the wedding, she even agreed to get the photos done a few days early so I could order our guest book in time for the wedding. During the session, she made us feel very comfortable and she kept track of time so we didn’t get a parking ticket. The resulting pictures were great (we’ve received many compliments).

Our wedding experience with Kim was as good as the engagement session. Our ceremony ended up being moved inside due to rain, and the venue didn’t have a lot of great options for photos when it was raining. Kim made the best of a tough situation, where we pretty much had one location indoors to take many photos. A testament to her style and equipment is that she took many of the same pictures as our family & friends did, but hers look MUCH better (i.e., her lighting allows both of us to retain our facial features). She ended up bringing a second shooter who was also fantastic (we’ll review him separately, though he also gets 5 stars). Kim was professional, efficient, and kind (she managed to get the family photos done in good time despite many of our family members trying to take their own photos). During the ceremony, she took a lot of great pictures without being disruptive. She got us our photos in fewer than 3 weeks, and she gave us some sneak peaks within days of the wedding. As a bride, I can tell you that she also earned points in my book because while I was calling all my other vendors to confirm the wedding schedule, Kim proactively contacted me to confirm the agreed-to schedule. Nice!

Kim is a gem and she did a lot of nice small things to help us relax and enjoy this whole process. Great person, great pictures, and a joy to work with – it doesn’t get much better than that. She was always prompt in her communications, helpful, and friendly. We feel blessed to have found such a great photographer. Overall, we are very pleased with the experience we had and the resulting photos. We would highly recommend her as a wedding photographer to anyone looking for a photographer who is easy to work with and takes great pictures. The photography ended up being the 2nd most expensive item in our budget (second only to the meal itself), and we’d do it again without any reservation. She’s that good! One of our guests said it best “You pictures actually did your beautiful wedding justice.”
