Believer 

 So thrilled you're here!

  Hi I'm Martina, My friends call me Tina, So you can too! I've had a love for photography for years ever since I can remember I've wanted to be a photographer I walked around with my iPhone and took some pretty terrible pictures actually, but they say love is blind, and I simply thought these photos were a work of art. But I'm sure it was a good thing I was blind otherwise I probably would've given up, way before I got good at it!! Even tho I loved it, I wouldn't say it came "naturally" for me. I had to work at my "skills" for many years figuring out what works and what doesn't. So that's what has led me here to you right now. 

  I shoot portraits, seniors, and family, and enjoy them all. But weddings is where I become alive. I love the high stress situations, where we are falling slightly behind schedule, and I get to bust out my "time catching up skills".  I love the nervous anticipation of the bride walking down the asle, I'll probably cry with you at the first look, fuss about all the little details, and cheer when you get married!!

My Two Passions 

01

Adventure

I am down for any adventure including travel, for sure if it includes friends and travel two of my most favorite things! 

Last summer I had the wonderful opportunity to take a trip out west with three of my best friends and it was glorious!! We drove through the long nights, went sight seeing, ambled though remote villages, explored cities, and laughed till our sides hurt!! Which is why if you're down for a destination wedding, Let me know, and I'll design a custom package for you!

Photography

I get insanely excited when I'm behind the camera, Its crazy! Seriously all my friends would tell you I'm crazy! I'm not afraid of getting the shot. As you can see in the first photo I'm quiet literally sprawled out on the ground in the middle of the sidewalk people are nearly tripping over me.. But what you don't see in that photo is that there are some crazy amazing skyscrapers behind my bestie and she want a photo with the skyscrapers.. So I got her a photo with some breathtaking skyscrapers. I mean why not?? If I can get an amazing shot by looking like a complete idiot. I will. 

The Purpose to my Passion

My Purpose Story

I woke up one morning to hear of the sudden death of a good friend of mine. She had been helping her husband late at night fixing a broken truck tire, when they got robbed and shot. She went to meet her maker, By a miracle of God, her husband lived to tell the story.  
 
  The purpose of this story is not to scare you. But rather to make you realize, as I realized today, that life is short, And we must make the most out of every single moment. 
 
  This why I do what I do! I want to document those little moments. Because we must never forget.
 
   You want to have those precious photos to look back on when a loved one is gone, or to cry, and laugh about, as you look back at the day you married the loved of your life.  cling to those precious memories for at any moment they might be gone. We are not guaranteed our next breath so let's make the most out of the ones have!

THINGS 
My favorite place on earth is the ocean. I could spend hours listening to the waves crashing over slippery rocks as the mist fills the air and wraps in its foggy blanket.
