Martin Beard

Martin is a natural and creative award winning wedding photographer based in Suffolk, with a fantastic reputation for stunning reportage (natural) wedding photography without the fuss and bossiness of many wedding photographers.

Martin said: “In fact I will enjoy it as much as you will, don’t just take my word for it, over 90% of couples who take the time to visit my studio in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, also book with me. No hard sell and no obligation, just take home the information and make up your own minds in your own time.

Capturing beautiful moments is what motivates me. Emotion, and natural looking images are my constant aim. For me it is about capturing ‘the moments between the moments’ which tell the story from start to finish on the day.”
