  • My now husband and I were seeking a wedding photographer that would deliver us technically excellent photographs with a casual, in-the-moment feel. We looked through several photographers' portfolios and were so grateful when we found Ian. We hired Ian for his candid shots and his ability to capture the feeling and movement in an event. Many guests from our wedding reached out to say that he "seemed to be everywhere" and that he "had a great sense of humor and captured everything!" Ian's photos were absolutely everything we were looking for and we could not have asked for a more pleasant person to work with. Thank you, Ian.

  • Ian shot our wedding in June. I have nothing but amazing things to say about his service and professionalism. Not only are we in love with the shots but he added so much to our day. From protecting my bridal party from an unwanted visitor to ensuring my groom and I had champagne in our pictures, Ian did it all! Thank you for helping us make memories (and photos) that will last a life time.

  • We would HIGHLY HIGHLY encourage anyone looking for an amazingly talented photographer to work with Ian. Not only is he a super skilled professional with an artistic eye, Ian is such a nice person--he is a warm, happy presence to have share in your special moment/occasion. We were so blessed to have him work with us. Kelly and I could not have asked for more; Ian gifted us with photos that captured our dream elopement perfectly. Thank you Ian!

  • Ian Martin is an incredible wedding photographer (what more needs to be said?). After previewing his impressive portfolio online, my husband and I agreed that we wanted/(NEEDED) him to capture our wedding day at the Hyatt Carmel Highlands. Suffice to say, we were not disappointed. It was nearly impossible to select our favorite shots for the wedding album because he took so many amazing photos. From breathtaking images of our ceremony at sunset over Big Sur to artful photos of our reception (dancing, cake cutting, toasts), we were overwhelmed with beautiful, timeless memories. Thank you so much, Ian!

  • In addition to being a gifted photographer, Ian was a pleasure to work with both before and during our daughter's wedding in September. He listened to what we wanted, and followed through with wonderful photos of the day, both posed and candid. Our daughter initially didn't want a photographer, as she thought of them as intrusive. Ian proved her wrong on that point. He was very good at blending in with the group and capturing memorable moments without being noticed. But when asked, he was able to get people together quickly and make everyone fell comfortable for some great portraits. His photographs turned out beautiful, and we were all very impressed, especially given the middle of the day bright lighting he had to deal with much of the time. Ian is friendly, flexible, professional and very talented. I would highly recommend him.

  • The moment I clicked onto Ian's website while looking for a photographer for our intimate elopement in the redwoods of Big Sur, I knew we had found our photographer-all his photos were relaxed, natural and outdoorsy, just plain gorgeous! He was responsive and great in communicating with and getting everything set up for the big day. Even though we weren't able to meet with him before the day of the wedding, we felt totally comfortable with him immediately. He captured beautiful shots of us getting ready and knew the area very well, even took us down to beautiful Pfeiffer Beach and got some amazing photos there! He had loads of ideas, was passionate, and friendly. We could not be happier with the photographs and we have had so many comments of how he captured the happiness and love of our wedding! Thank you Ian! Viktoria and Cris

  • I am so grateful that I found Ian, who was available to photograph our wedding at Pebble Beach. He is an absolute pleasure to work with - he was response, flexible to our needs, attentive and a joy to be around. Above all else, his work speaks for itself. When I first went onto Ian's website, I knew he was a superb photographer. I loved his style, candid photography and use of light. He was definitely our first choice. But, just to be sure, I also interviewed a couple other photographers and a few things stood out to me. First, I found Ian to be more flexible than other photographers. He customized a package that was exactly what we wanted - everything from the actual images we'd received to the number of spots he would take us to after the ceremony (along 17-mile Drive). Second, with Ian - what you see is what you get. Since we were having a smaller ceremony, a lot of other photographers said they would send their assistants or partners out to our wedding. I think it's imperative to k... Read more

  • Ian was a flat-out fantastic photographer -- we could not have asked for anything more! He was a great communicator both before and after we signed our contract and was responsive to follow-up questions after our wedding. Though we gave him little direction -- only a set of desired family photos -- he produced an incredible set of photos that told the 'story' of our wedding. He captured many amazing moments throughout our wedding and reception, and impressively did so very discreetly -- we hardly noticed him! He has a very unique and classy photography style and was a great to interact with. Therefore, we highly recommend Ian as a photography vendor!

  • We couldn't have asked for a better wedding photographer! Not only was he a lot of fun to work with, he certainly captured many of the natural interactions that were happening between people. There were many times that we didn't even notice that he was there/taking a photo, and sure enough, he single-handedly captured many happy moments. He was very accommodating with the photo shoots before and after the ceremony. And, because we needed to put together a photo slideshow for our second wedding reception abroad several weeks later, he gave us the link to the photos within the provided timeline. I haven't been able to stop looking through his beautiful documentation of our wedding day and reliving every moment of it!

  • It was great working with Ian for our wedding photography! He was professional, charismatic and delivered fabulous photos, while somehow being unobtrusive throughout the event. We wanted someone who could capture the little moments that made our day special, and Ian did so flawlessly. We are so thrilled with how our photos turned out and we would recommend Ian to anyone in a heartbeat!
