Just brilliant! We looked high and low for a reportage wedding photographer who had the knack of capturing the real moments and the soul of people. When I came across Martins I knew we had found our man! From the moment we met him he inspired us, with his calm, professional manner, his obvious expertise and his confidence. On the day he excelled himself and so many of our guests commented on his innate ability to blend into the background, thus enabling our guests to feel natural and comfortable, rather than feel like they were being hounded by paps. Our other suppliers also commented on how easy it was to work with him and I know they are all very excited, as we are, about seeing the pictures. I have complete faith that they will top my expectations having been blown away by his talent and scoured his portfolio at least fifty times! If you are looking for a superb photographer to capture your special memories you have found your man!

Martins, thank you for capturing our wedding day so perfectly with your photographs!! When we found your portfolio online it stood out like no other, your photographs are so vibrant and full of emotion. We were so pleased to have you as our photographer as we had every confidence that the photographs would be magical, and of course they were. Looking through our photographs is like watching the whole day unfold again but through many different eyes - the bride's, the groom's, the mum's, the best man's, the guest's... every moment of happiness, laughter, and tears! We love how you encompassed the immense scenery of our beautiful Somerset setting, but also all the small details that we had included to make the day special. All of our family and friends have been wowed by your reportage style, but thank you for getting those important group shots for Grandma too!
All the best,
Ian & Brittany Walsh
p.s. for those reading this wondering whether to choose Martins to be their wedding photographer you have my whole hearted recommendation, but really you just need to take a look at his photographs as they speak for themselves!
WOW! WE LOVE YOU! We have just got back from work and looked at your blog.... the photos are out of this world. We knew they would be good and have been refreshing your blog constantly - but we weren't prepared for the emotion that seeing your wonderful photos of the day evoked. You caught so much of the day exactly as we remembered it and I cried the whole way through!! I can't say enough how happy we are at the quality of the photos, there are SO many wonderful wonderful photos, we can't stop looking at them, and can't wait for more!
Thank you so much for being our photographer - we will recommend you to EVERYONE! What you said on your blog was exactly right, we loved everything about our wedding but photography was one of our biggest priorities, and now we have something perfect to remember our day forever.

We couldn't be happier with the quality of Martins work! It's one thing to find someone that is able to do their job technically well, but it's incredibly rare to find someone who is great technically yet also soul-full and highly creative. With the pictures Martins has delivered us we have a body of work that captures not just the spirit and atmosphere of the day but individually captures our guests idiosyncrasies and personalities. This is an art as much as it is a skill!

Thank you so much Martins for being our photographer! Your have really captured the day, every time I look at my photo's it takes me back to the amazing weekend.
My memories of the weekend were just everyone having fun, lots of laughter and mad things going on - You captured every part so well!! Your photographs really do tell a story and show not only what was going on but everyones personalities and feelings.
I couldn't wish for a better dialogue of my special day, I only wish you could have been at the house on the friday and sunday so we had your amazing photographs to tell the tory of the whole weekend!
Thank you again

We chose Martins simply because he's an excellent photographer! I witnessed his work when I was best man at my friends wedding so I asked him to be our photographer also.
He took shots that we didn't even know we had. He just faded into the background on our big day. Not only that, the shots he took were amazing!!
He's not your conventional point and shoot photographer - he's able to find these great angles and be able to frame the photographs amazingly well! Needless to say, both my wife and I are really happy about our photos, as are our family.
He's a true artist at the top of his profession!! Booking him will mean long after your wedding has come and gone, the memories will forever be with you through the excellent work of his lens!

After looking at hundreds of photographers out there and searching for the right one for our wedding, we stopped our search when we found Martins. Peter and I, are both camera shy so Martins natural style suited us perfectly. His ability to stay in the background and yet capture the essence of the moment is absolutely brilliant!! We both have large families so we knew it would be a challenge for the photographer to get them all in the photos. However, on the day, Martins just coped magnificently! He also adapted very well from the change in locations and he captured all the little details that many people would've missed! The resulting photos were simply breathtaking!!! The online gallery was up and running within weeks and we've had so many people compliment how beautiful the photos turned out.
Having Martins as our photographer for our wedding was a joy! We would highly recommend Martins to other brides and grooms as his photos are perfect and will be bringing back special memories for years to come.
Martins is a fantastic photographer! We wish him all the best in the future in his career doing what he does best...

We would like to thank you for capturing our special day so beautifully! We really like the style in which you have managed to capture the emotion of the day. You were so helpful in the build up to the wedding and gave us great ideas on the day, in particular, when working within the castle and the beautiful surroundings.
On the day you managed to blend in with the guests and yet managed to capture wonderful shots.
Overall, you were very friendly and professional! We are glad you were a part of our wedding and helped us to create these wonderful memories. We can now say we had an international award winning photographer and a photo from our wedding was recognised!

It's difficult to put into words what a fantastic experience we've had with Martins! We spent hours looking through hundreds of websites trying to find a photographer that would suit our requirements. Neither of us is keen on 'posey' photos, but we still wanted someone to capture the emotion of our day. As soon as we came across Martins site, we immediately stopped our search... without a doubt his photos are the most stunning we've seen and so creative too.
As for the actual wedding day, it's difficult to remember seeing Martins as he blended so well into the background, yet still managed to achieve the most amazing photos of all of us, and our guests.
Our photos were presented in a beautiful gallery, with music selected by us, on Martins website for all our guests to see. We've had so many comments from our guests about the quality of the photos and the ability Martins has to capture such natural shots. Our album, designed by Martins is just stunning and he was happy to make any amendments for us without any hesitation.
We really can't recommend Martins enough, he is a true professional and it's been a real pleasure to have worked with him!

We warmly recommend Martins Kikulis. Martins agreed to cover our registry in London this summer. We were delighted with the photos he took - they were natural yet modern and captured the emotion of the day really well!
Aurelie & Reza
Martins captured our Wedding Day on the 1st May and he did an amazing job! He is very approachable and did everything in his power to make our photos and day so special, the photos are amazing on his website and were on there really fast. The additions he made to them were world class!
Thanks again Martins
