Hello and welcome to Martelle. Thanks for stopping by and we hope you enjoy looking around our site and perhaps getting to know us a bit more.
Martelle Photography was formed in April 2012. Prior to that I guess you could say it was an expensive hobby. We had been to a few friends' weddings and taken some candid and relaxed photographs throughout the day. Our photography got some people talking and we heard how our photographs really captured the essence of their day. Hearing such nice things, and after working really hard to improve our skills, knowledge and techniques, we shot our first wedding together! Since then we have shot nearly 100 weddings!
Things have moved on so much since those early days. We have invested heavily in training, more training and continue to work hard to improve our style and techniques and have increased our equipment.
The first Martin remembers about photography was being about 6 years old and acting as 'model' for his dad who was using a Kodak Brownie to photography river scene!! He wasn't actually using him as a model - let's just say it was more a tactic to keep him out of mischief! In 2007 he invested in his first DSLR camera and hasn't looked back since. Martin now also teaches photography.
Ellen is the backbone behind Martelle. She is fabulous with a camera and is brilliant at looking after people on their big day. "So much more than a photographer" .... many a Bride has said!!
Both of us have warm, caring and friendly personalities and will always try to go that extra yard to make your day as special as we can. As an experienced husband and wife photography team and an established Nottingham Wedding Photographer Martelle have covered weddings across the East Midlands and have travelled further afield on occasion.
We think its best to meet with your photographer as they will be spending most of the day with you. You have to get one with them and ion doing so you will get much better photos! We think that our friendly and likeable personalities will shine through and help get you the very best natural and relaxed images of your day!
Get in touch and see for yourselves why people love Martelle!
