Specialising in capturing natural & unposed pictures.
Photography is an art form, and the only way to achieve the greatest results in any arts is to love what you do.
My style is to remain in the background, capturing the most natural moments of your wedding day. I aim to keep posing and instructions to a minimum, while still covering the traditional ideas and using natural light 99% of the time.
I believe that the best wedding photography captures those special unplanned moments during the day when people don’t even notice they’re being photographed.
A wedding day is a day filled with feelings and emotions, so being a sensitive person is an advantage! It is about knowing how to capture the best single moment and make it real again.
I am here to make you feel calm, relaxed and to forget about the camera. This is my aim and responsibility as a professional.
Based in Dublin I am available to photograph weddings nationwide and would love to hear about your upcoming wedding day.

We chose Martina after falling in love with her modern, unique style of work. Her friendly, warm bubbly personality won us over as well as the examples of her photography. We knew we would be relaxed and comfortable in her company. From our first chat we could tell she was flexible and she showed great interest in how we wanted to capture the special, intimate moments of our big day. Martina met us a few weeks before the wedding to go through the final details. She advised us to get a second photographer so that the preparation of both bride and groom could be captured as well having that extra angle so that no moment went unmissed. It was definitely worth it. On the day itself we very happy with how everything went. Martina subtly captured all the important moments of the day in their own distinctive style. Also, she instantly responded to any requests that we had for a shot and stayed until well after the speeches to take photos of the partying afterwards! Within days of the wedding Martina posted some selected photos on her blog, which was great to have to share with friends and family. After reviewing the excellent photos we met with Martina to edit the album. We couldn't be happier with the results. After coming to our wedding and seeing Martina in action, some of our friends subsequently booked Martina for their own weddings. We couldn't recommend them highly enough.

Deirdre & I got married only a week ago in Wexford. Martina California was involved with us for the last 4 or 5 months. We did an engagement shoot with her and the quality of the photos were really good. We both really like her natural style plus her attention to detail. She has a really keen eye for a great photo and sees photo opportunities that more conventional wedding photographers would miss. We were so delighted with these engagement pictures and the amount of time invested in us. It also gave us a lot of confidence before the pictures on our Wedding day. We met a couple of times to go through the order of the day itself and it was all fully understood and her ideas were great. On the wedding day itself, she travelled to Wexford really early to take pictures of me and the groomsmen. She then travelled to take pre-wedding pics with the bride and kept on shooting right through the wedding, to the photoshoot location and back to the hotel. She captured our special moments until well after the first dance. She worked so hard for us on the most important day of our lives and she must have been more exhausted than us at the end!
