Wow, Marty amazing shots. Thanks so very much. We have loved looking through our wedding photos upon our return. We must have looked through them all about half a dozen times now. They turned out so well - thanks again Marty for shooting our wedding. We love the photos.

I'm Marty Pouwelse and I'm a professional wedding photographer servicing Brisbane & South East Queensland.

Style

I love big bold colour and I use special lighting to achieve this, especially around sunset. I like wide angles and using dramatic landscapes where possible without neglecting the more traditional styles. During the reception I make an effort to photograph everyone there and focus on capturing the 'party' nature of the occasion.

I'm professional, friendly, down-to-earth and relaxed. I'll greet your guests with a soft friendly approach and an understanding that they're part of the occasion to enjoy themselves and not get hassled by photographers. My ultimate aim is to not only create a memorable record of your wedding day, but to produce some beautiful, interesting and creative portraits as well.

All this for an affordable price that may surprise you.

Free Wedding Photography Planning Session

I'll meet up anywhere in Brisbane or SE Qld, obligation free, to discuss your wedding photography and show you all the photos from another wedding to give you a clear idea of exactly what you'll get.

We would like to thank Marty for being our wedding photographer. He helped make the morning so relaxed (as much as it can be before the ceremony). He managed to capture a lot of great family moments we didn't even see. The bridal party photos were fun, and look amazing. We would definitely recommend Marty to anyone looking for a photographer. Love your work Marty, thanks for everything!

Marty was a pleasure to work with leading up to the wedding and most importantly to us, was able to take terrific photos right through the event without interfering with our guests at all. For most of them, the only time they remembered the photographer was when he was taking group shots and he made them fun for everyone. Some of Marty's car photos from the wedding have made it into national and international magazines and our guests were all extremely delighted with the personal shots he took of many of them, as were we when we received our photo albums. Marty is very professional in his approach to special events and we consider ourselves lucky to have him as our wedding photographer.

They're fantastic. Thank you! The more I look at them, the more I fall in love with them. Everything you have given me is beautiful. I am soooo impressed, they're great, and worth every cent. Both you and your wife were great on the day, and you made us all feel comfortable and more importantly it was fun!

Overall, everything is excellent, there was a good mix of candid and posed photos, really captured the emotions of our faces very well. Lighting was excellent and we are very pleased with the colour and the post processing techniques used, like that "dreamy" look to some of the photos. A comment from a lot of my work colleagues is that it looked like a lot of fun and that everyone looked to be having a great time. For that to be seen by someone who wasn't there at the event through static images says a lot about how well you captured the day. So huge credit to you. Our feeling on the overall set of photos, we love them. Thank you so very much to have worked that whole day to help us capture the memories.

Oh my goodness!!!! They are amazing! So excited!! We both could never have imagined you would capture our day in a more perfect way than you have! I can't stop looking at them and I have no idea how we are going to pick the one photo that we plan to have blown up on to a large canvas. We had the best wedding day and thanks to your amazing photography, we won't forget just how perfect the day was!! Honestly we can not thank you enough!! We will be recommending you to anyone and everyone :) Thank you Marty! They are just perfect!

Overall we both thought you were brilliant on the day... We were very impressed that you stuck around longer than we anticipated afterwards when we were all seated and felt that we were never pushed or rushed... We were glad you seemed to just adapt to our personalities and seemed to do a great job figuring out the right photos without us giving you much to go by!!! ... Matt and I both love how you have really brought the photos to life with the emphasis on the colour and a lot of people also commented on that as well... We thought the price was really reasonable as well after hearing what other people paid and their horror stories! ... We were joking on our honeymoon that you would be good to take along to take some great honeymoon photos!

Your photos are absolutely fantastic - actually, they're breathtaking. I have not seen such creativity in wedding photos for a long time - if ever - and I have seen lots of photos.

They're fantastic. Thank you! The more I look at them, the more I fall in love with them. Everything you have given me is beautiful. I am soooo impressed, they're great, and worth every cent. Both you and your wife were great on the day, and you made us all feel comfortable and more importantly it was fun! The shots that you captured of people just being themselves are great - you have captured the essence of the day and there are heaps of memories in them (so much so, that I definitely know I didn't need a videographer!!! the photos are more than enough!). They're great and definitely more than what I could have asked for ... I'll definitely recommend you to any others looking for photographers.

We have looked through the photos..... WOW they're great, Paul and I are very happy with them! With so many it will take us a while to pick out our favourites but on our first look through you have done a sensational job of capturing the day. The Jetty, the Tree and the Rock Wall all have photos we love and that will be displayed proudly in our house.

We love the photos. There are some beautiful shots there. As for your behaviour on the day, well ..... how long have you got - just kidding, you were great and so was your beautiful wife. We haven't heard a bad word from anyone about you, and we were certainly more than happy with everything. The photos on the beach were beautiful and the family shots were fantastic. We are so happy with everything.

We liked: (A) the fun approach to the photos. I have heard so many brides complain about forcing smiles all day. Our smiles were true smiles and while our faces hurt we were having fun and enjoying the moment. Michelle and yourself relaxed the mood and encouraged our personalities to come through; (B) your recommendations on positioning and direction given when trying to achieve quality photos; and (C) your movement throughout the day. At many times when getting ready and at the ceremony I had no idea of were you where but when seeing the photos you were clearly moving quickly around the room and location.
