Hey! My Name Is Martina
I’m a food lover,
a fan of all things vegan,
and a passionate dancer.
When I’m not photographing couples (which I love doing!), you can find me making pancakes, playing guitar and travelling the world.
Why a Wedding Photographer and not just, a Photographer? First of all, because I truly believe that real love exists! I feel really emotional every time I meet a couple who is in love. It makes me think there are still pure things in life. So don’t worry if you see me emotional during your day! I’ll be grand.
My dream became real after really hard work and now it’s time to enjoy doing what I really love: Photographing real stories. No matter what gender, age or country. Love is love… and I aim to recognise and capture unrepeatable moments.
This is my story. What’s yours?
“Specialising in capturing those unposed and relaxed moments that tell their own story, Martina California is a Spanish photographer who’s gained a reputation as one of the most individual and unique wedding photographers in the business. Equally impressive with engagement shoots as on the big day itself, she’s had the chance to capture happy couples both here on Irish shores and all over the world, so it’s fair to say there’s no challenge she hasn’t faced – and overcome! Her ideal subjects are couples who bring bundles of personality, and are eager to explore the possibility of new and offbeat ideas to capture the spirit of their event, while Martina herself is never short of a crazy suggestion if needed. Chances are it won’t be long until you’re arranging a coffee meeting to see just what wild and wonderful treats this talented snapper might bring to your wedding day.”

“We had the absolute pleasure of Martina shooting our wedding this September.
– Kevin Newman
“Martina shot our wedding day on the 31st October 2015. Martina has great attention to detail and is so creative in her work. She has an eye for beauty and captured everything perfectly. The wedding day went by so quickly but thankfullyMartina was there to capture so many great moments. These were the moments we didn’t know existed until we looked through all our pictures. It was like we were reliving our wedding day again!!!
I knew Martina was the photographer for us the minute we met her at the City West wedding fair. She was quirky, fun, unique and offered something different then all the other photographers we had met. Michael and I love everything vintage and Martina knew exactly the look we were going for and was so excited for us. I knew Martina would do a wonderful job. We had an engagement photo shoot and this was just amazing. This allowed us to get used to the camera, so on the wedding day it was all very natural and easy. Martina’s work exceeded all our expectations, so many of our family and friends have complimented Marttina on the quality, creativity and the quantity our pictures.
Martina was a pleasure to deal with. She responded to all of our emails in a timely manner. We even had our wedding pictures before we went on honeymoon. Every picture is more beautiful than the next and captured the day to perfection. I really cannot say enough great things about Martina.
If you are reading this review and still contemplating Martina California photography for your wedding , stop thinking and book fast!! This is the best decision you will make for your wedding, I promise!! While you and your new husband or wife are socializing with your family and friends at the wedding, rest assure that Martina will capture every moment so you don’t have to worry about anything and just enjoy your wedding!
Thank You, Thank You, Thank You Martina for capturing our dream wedding.“
