Wedding photography duo

Wedding photography duo

Hi, We are Marta & Magic, North Devon based husband and wife photography team. Our passion comes from working with people, to capture precious moments together and save memories that will last a lifetime.

The majority of weddings that you see on this website has been photographed by two of us, a husband and wife team that has the same creative style and approach when it comes to wedding photography. Having us as your wedding photographers will give you peace of mind that our work will be consistent. Having two photographers at your special day can open other doors to creativity, we can split in the morning to capture the bride and groom getting ready, which usually tends to happen at separate locations / rooms, allowing the whole day to be documented from two different perspectives in a natural, relaxed, photojournalistic style.

A LITTLE BIT ABOUT US

We are a family run business priding ourselves on attention to detail and happy clients. Your wedding is about you and we are here to guide you into achieving the very best in wedding imagery. We want you to look back over your wedding photography in years to come and for all those emotions you experience on your special day, to come flooding back to you.  It’s more than just a job for us, it’s a passion.

OUR APPROACH

We approach weddings with a very natural and unposed approach, some may call it reportage – but no matter what label you put on it, your wedding day is about you and it’s not a photoshoot! It’s about capturing real life moments and preserving them forever. Unlike many photographers, we don’t believe in a one size fits all approach, we tailor make our package, to something that suits your wedding day perfectly. Our mission is to ensure you feel like you’ve booked a good friend to photograph your wedding, one with the ability to see things you didn’t because you were rightly caught up in the emotions, somebody who can make you feel relaxed when there are moments of tension, and most importantly somebody that you can have confidence in.

WE TELL YOUR STORY…

Our aim is simple, to provide you with a beautiful visual story. From the little details you’ve spent weeks and months deciding on, through to those emotional moments of the day, all captured in a discreet and personal manner. From the moment we arrive at the venue to the moment we pack our kit away, We’re constantly moving around looking for shots, lighting and locations. We love to observe people and capture the day as it unfolds, often you won’t even notice we’re there, working hard in the background to acquire those special moments.   Our style of wedding photography is documentary photo journalism with a little fine-art thrown into the mix, a style that allows you to be photographed in a relaxed and informal way, with the aim of removing the dreaded fear of having to pose! It’s extremely important for us to capture your day and character as it is, no gimmicks or distractions, with the end result being a collection of beautiful images that tell a story about you and your day. Of course, we love to take portraits too, and will always help coordinate portrait sessions into the day. Arranged in a sympathetic way and ensuring that everything runs smoothly so that you get all of the formal images you want to document family and friends. We won’t make you do cheesy poses or anything that doesn’t feel like you. We not there to tell you what kind of wedding you should have, but we will be there to capture the moments as they happen and in a way that reflects you.

Two Photographers

the advantages

There is so many advantages of having second photographer (back-up, assistant, different angles, more candid shots) The list is endless. Second shooter is not necessary but it definitely makes it more creative (natural) as the whole day is photographed from two different perspectives.

Two different locations – In the event that one photographer cannot reasonably cover both the bride and the groom getting ready in the morning, a second photographer may be necessary.

A different perspective on the day – A second photographer can capture the reactions, emotions and actions from different perspective than the primary which can be really nice addition to your images.

More candid photos – The primary photographer is there to get the must-have images and candids when possible but the second shooter is there to focus on the candids.

Feel free to take a look at some of our (two-photographers) full wedding stories. It’s obvious that most of these shots would not be possible without having a second photographer.

Testimonials

Beth & Sean

“Marta and Magic were incredible photographers for our wedding day. I didn’t think it would be possible to capture how perfect our wedding day was but Marta and Magic managed to capture the day perfectly with exactly the type of natural shots that we wanted. I love every single photo and how the happiness of the day shines through. All our guests absolutely loved them too because of how friendly they were and how they put everyone at ease – even my Mum who hates having her photo taken! We now have the most beautiful photos of every part of our wedding to re-live that perfect day through. Thank you so much!!”
