About Me


Hi there, my name is Martina. My photography style can be defined as documentary, romantic, and natural. If you like what you see here, I’d love to know more about you, your love story, and how I may fit in your wedding day vision. 

Working with me is more than just a business relationship, it’s about getting to know you, your love story, and building a true connection that allows me to capture your story and all the magic within. My goal is to make you feel comfortable, help you “forget” the nerve of being in front of the camera and let your true self shine.

The best part of my day is waking up next to my baby girl, Aisha, and having a croissant with Nutella and a good cup of coffee, with our chubby cats Felix & Eva. Aisha is my biggest inspiration as she encourages me to be the very best version of myself. That’s why I never stop doing the things that make me feel alive!! I am passionate about Kizomba dancing and a DJ in training, among many other things that we can chat about later.

During my early teens, I experimented with my dad’s Reflex Olympus and it was love at first sight. By the time I was 19, I took a photography course and landed my first full-time photography job on cruise ships. At this point, I knew I would never stop traveling. 

In 2006, a friend asked me to help him shoot a wedding in DR and I was ecstatic!! I realized that I wanted to dedicate my time to becoming a professional wedding photographer. 

Just the thought of documenting such a special day in people’s lives blew my mind. I’ve been shooting destination weddings since then and have no plans to stop!!!

My style is 99% photo documentary with a mix of direction and posed shots when needed. I dig emotions and beautiful natural light. My weddings are a mix of happy tears, kids playing in the background, guests laughing, flares, sun-kissed skin, magical sunsets, sweet glances, and tons of moments that when put together, tell an authentic love story. 

Weddings, for me, are like a window to a unique and intimate moment in someone’s life. It’s more than a job, I need to connect with you at every level, become more of a friend and wedding guest, to capture an authentic story through my vision. Weddings are like a Journey, and I’m grateful and privileged to be part of it.

I currently live in Riviera Maya, Mexico but travel often to my hometown in Italy and love capturing destinations weddings in any corner of the world.

Choose me, if you like what I do and how I am. In return, I promise to pour my heart and soul into every image captured. Please drop a line HERE I’m so excited to hear from you!
