Nina Braun on her destination wedding. “Martin turned out to be an amazing choice to photograph our unusual wedding; top of Loveland Ski Area @12,000+ ft in the middle of February! Martin’s professional demeanor, fun-going attitude, kick-ass snowboarding abilities, and great pictures really captured this special and memorable day for Sean and I. And our guests were equally impressed! Thanks, Martin Southwest Sunset Media!”

You wont regret hiring them for your special event!”

My fascination for photography began my junior year of high school, where I truly learned the meaning of self expression. I can honestly say I discovered myself and who I wanted to be through the lens of my camera.
My attraction started with film. Anywhere from experimenting with different materials and techniques to the serene sensation of creating in the dark room. Bringing life to a blank canvas with an image that you captured can evoke so many emotions, it's this thrill that makes me fall in love with photography each time I pick up a camera.
Once I discovered my path was to pursue photography I applied to the Art Institute of Colorado, packed my bags and moved to a state that would forever inspire me.
Photography has always been an interest of mine.
Growing up I led an active outdoor life, camping, hiking, backpacking and fishing. My love for the outdoors and adventure expanded as I grew older and took me to some amazing places. My interest in capturing images and memories from these amazing places has driven me to study photography and always have cameras with me on my trips.
I continue to expand my expertise and horizons in photography to better capture those images. This has led to me to realize that being behind the camera is my passion and that passion has led me to working with clients on a variety of projects in many disciplines of photography.
