Fantastic work by Alex to produce some amazing photos!!! We loved our engagement shoot and it was a pleasure to have Alex at our wedding :) Everyone was really impressed and we didn't notice the camera at all during the day!

Alex Martin is a brilliant wedding photographer - she is based in the Scottish Borders and has a portfolio which is fresh, creative and innovative. Her clients absolutely adore her - you will see why when you flick through her photos and meet her on Sunday at the wedding fair.

She says, "wedding photography should be fun, relaxed, exciting, full of discovery... but above all, it's about creating images of your wedding, your lifestyle and your loved ones that you'll treasure for a lifetime".

She is as creative as she is technical which means her photography has enormous range - capturing everything from breath-taking big pictures to touching details. We particularly love how her personality slots in to your wedding day - she is definitely laid-back, bringing a sense of chill to what can be a mad day, but she is also clear and direct with guests and couples which is key to getting perfect shots.Alex Martin is a brilliant wedding photographer - she is based in the Scottish Borders and has a portfolio which is fre...sh, creative and innovative.

Alex

Where do we start...we just want to say thank you so much for our stunning wedding photos, they are all we had hoped for and more,  For a couple who dont particularly like having their photograph taken you made us feel at ease with your friendly prefessional manner.

You fitted in with our day perfectly and captured some very precious moments without us even noticing.

Our final album is amazing and we have enjoyed sharing it with out family and friends, who have all loved it!  Its a little piece of our day that we`ll treasure forever.  We are so grateful for everything you have done and will be recommending you to all our friends.

Love Kirsty and Scott xxx

We wanted to say a massive thank you for the incredible job you did capturing our wedding day.  From start to finish your approach has been friendly, caring and professional.  On our wedding day you were great at sorting everyone out and kept things relativly on time!

The quality of the proof book is exceptional and has so many photos that I think it will be a struggle to decide which ones we want!  We look forward to getting our album and we have definately been recomending you to everyone we know getting married. 

Love Keith and Marie xxx

"We are so pleased that we chose Alex Martin to do the photography for our wedding day in July 2010 at The Roxburghe Hotel, Heiton, Kelso. From the first time we spoke, Alex was full of ideas and suggestions about how to capture the best moments of our special day. It was really important to us that the day was as informal as possible and Alex made sure that the photographs fitted around us. We don't normally like having our photograph taken but Alex made sure the whole process was fun and put us completely at ease whilst remaining totally professional. Alex was there to give us as much help as we needed in choosing the photographs we wanted to keep and the resulting album exceeds all of our expectations! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Alex Martin Photography to anyone."



Claire and James Boulter

Dear Alex,

James and I wanted to thank you so much for everthing you have done. From the very beginning you have been a real joy; always eager to help and making everything so easy for us. On the day itself you were brilliant at making everyone feel relaxed and comfortable and the photos you took are absolutely beautiful. So many of our friends and family commented on how you manage to find the perfect balance between professionalism and fun. Our only problem was trying to choose our favourite photos! The album that you produced is gorgeous and we so appreciate the time and effort that you put into the design. We are so grateful for everything you have done and will be recommending you to all of our friends!


With every best wish

Hi Alex,

We’re back from honeymoon now and I’ve just looked at the SUPERB photos you took of our wedding at Neidpath Castle, Peebles. THANK YOU!

You were absolutely fantastic and have done such a great job of capturing so much of the day. Needless to say we had an amazing day and you were definitely part of that. Your calm, efficient ‘melt into the background’ friendly style was exactly what we were looking for so thank you. A lot of our guests also commented on how great you were.

It’s back to reality now, but we have some great photos to remember the day by!

with HUGE thanks
