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

The non bossy approach is how I like to photograph weddings, “it’s a wedding not one big photo shoot” 

I would say that I am a reportage / documentary wedding photographer who works throughout the UK. I find that the best way to capture wedding photography is in an unobtrusive photojournalistic style. As a wedding photojournalist the aim in my wedding photography is to capture the true story of your day not create my vision of what your day should be. I am therefore for the most part of the day a “guest with a camera” who blends in with your wedding. This allows you to enjoy your day with your guests which is what your wedding day should be about, and not forgetting the odd family photo to keep the parents happy too.

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.

I am an experienced wedding photographer having photographed over 800 weddings ranging from the small intimate to large weddings in castles and stately homes. The smallest wedding included only the bride and groom and two witnesses, the largest there were over 300 guests. To be honest it does not really make a difference because the day is all about you and your story and how I capture it is very much the same.

On your wedding day and in the build up you need to know you have a photographer with the skills, experience and personal qualities to not only record your day perfectly but help the day flow for you and your guests. You will very likely have spent thousands of pounds on your wedding and the day will pass very quickly don’t let an inexperienced wedding photographer detract from your day. People generally underestimate how a good photographer can make the day flow allowing you time with your guests and a bad one can annoy everyone. With me you can relax in the knowledge that come rain, shine or snow I will get the images you want in a relaxed, friendly unobtrusive manner.

After your wedding you choose your favourite wedding photographs from the extensive number of photographs uploaded onto our website from the comfort of your own home. Martin will then start the design process in producing a series of Graphistudio wedding books or Jorgensen album layouts for you to approve before going into production. Once the design has been approved I hand the wedding book or album production over to our wedding book / album team.

Please take a little time to look at my wedding gallery and if you would like to discuss the possibility of me photographing your wedding please contact me to discuss your wedding day and how I may be able to help.

"My husband and I (its official now!!!) approached Martin Beard Photography with a view to commissioning him to take our wedding photographs. We both instantly felt at ease with Martin and he listened to exactly what we wanted - as well as what we didn't want our photography to be. Martin went that extra mile to make our day so special and the photographs were stunning - would we recommend him - ABSOLUTELY!!!! A+++++ The best photographer in East Anglia by far".
