Dear Martina, Thank you so much for doing such
a wonderful job with our wedding pictures and album. We are really
enjoying them! Also, please thank Amy for all her help. Thank you
for helping to make our wedding special. - Karen & Nicolas
Martina, a huge thanks for the wonderful photography you produced of our wedding. You really captured every moment of the day and were able to get such incredible action/candid shots. We are thrilled with the photos!! I am hoping to get our selection together for our album very soon!! Thank you so much for everything and for accommodating our every request! - Cristen Razzari Fazal
Thank you and your staff for the wonderful job you did for our wedding
last October. The photos were beautiful and your directions at the wedding
helped it to go smoothly. Thanks to you we have many great memories and
artistic photographs too! - Sincerely, Xiaohui & Kirk
Thanks for being part of our special day! - Love, Mary & But
Martina, You have captured the hearts of everyone at the wedding.
People have asked me about your rate and they haven’t even seen
the photography yet. We just feel so blessed and fortunate to
have found you, and plan to use your services to document all
important moments in our future. Soon you will have a new little
one in your life. Our warmest congratulations and thank yours.
- Love, Tami & Charles McColgan
We would love to have the negatives from our wedding, as well as
other proofs, contact sheets, etc that you may have stored. We’ll
be moving in early to mid April, so it would be wonderful if you are
able to send them to our current address before then. Congrats on your
new daughter!! Cheers! Sara Cody & Dong
Martina, it is hard to put into words the thanks we have for what you
did for our wedding, our engagement pictures, our memories and
our families. It is easy to see that you put our entire spirit
and energy into every moment behind the camera. Your personality
and energetic attitude seem to bring out the best in all of the
people in the pictures.It is so important that pictures capture the memories
of the day and tell a story of the event. Katrina and I were completely
comfortable and confident that we had the best photography. The
wedding proofs were absolutely the best wedding pics we’ve ever
seen (of course we are a little biased). Thank you again for preserving
our wedding day through your beautiful works of art. P.S. We’ll
call you when our baby is born! - Katrina & Scott
Martina and Gabriele do absolutely beautiful work. In both shooting our photos and composing our album, their artistic talent shone through. Even after the event they worked with us and our parents closely to help create an album that perfectly mirrors the beauty of our wedding. - Elizabeth & Michael
Dear Martina, I miss you too.
I've actually been in Florida since the beginning of May and was
looking through my mother's mini-version of my wedding album. (Next week would have been my 10-yr. anniversary--time flies!) You did such a fantastic job. Thank you for being one of the factors that made my wedding day so absolutely wonderful. People still talk about what a great time they had. And I was fortunate enough to have you there to capture people's expressions, emotions and laughter. When my older nephew Claudio (who was 10 then) made his famous speech to me and Mark ("Donna, congratulations on your wedding, you are a great
aunt and lady.....Mark: HAVE FUN WITH HER!"). Do you remember that? My former friend Laurie ran out of tape RIGHT before Claudio made the entire room of people laugh
hysterically)...however, YOU managed to get it in color and B&W! I love looking at those photos. Thank you again. DANKE!!!!!!
I'll be back living in Marin, in Larkspur actually, in October.
Let's try to get together. My best regards, Donna
Thank you for the recent postcard announcing your newly-designed websites. They both look stunning. Your work is consistently so fresh and beautiful.
We are doing well in Menlo Park. We have two children now--Isabela is 4 1/2 and William is 22 months. Maybe we can arrange for a children's portrait session in the future.
It has been nearly 5 1/2 years since our wedding at Stanford Memorial Church. Your photos of that day bring countless memories back to life. I am especially grateful for the lovely images of me with my parents. My mother passed on last June and your wedding images are a wonderful way to remember her on a happy day.
May you continue to give wedding couples the gift of your photography for years to come.
All the best, Kim
My fiance and I loved meeting you today, and we are very excited to request that you be our wedding photographer. We feel so comfortable with you already, and your photos are beautiful and artistic. We will complete the contract and mail the deposit to you ASAP.
Below is the quote from Boone Spooner:
"Yes, I HIGHLY recommend Martina - she was amazing. I honestly believe that she is one of the best wedding photographers in the bay area. When Lori and I were looking for a photographer we went to an insane amount of wedding fairs and events to try and find someone, and no one came even close. She is a little expensive, but I really think that you get what you pay for in photography. Not only was she great, but her partner (who also comes to the wedding and shoots) was an amazing photographer. AND, she basically saved / ran our wedding. When things got crazy (which, i think is the nature of weddings) she was theÊprofessional and expert in charge - you know, clarity under pressure - she was funny, smart and able to control our families (i didn't even know that anyone could do that) and get them to line up and take great photos even though we were running late, people were missing, things were going wrong etc etc. I can't say enough good things about Martina - she is amazing. Another great thing about Martina is that she uses film, 35mm and Medium format (which i love to death) AND, she get's the photos printed and placed in the most amazing bound book that will last forever - it's awesome. Man, I feel like I should write a testimonial!
