Hello, I’m Martin Spicer and welcome to my website. Thanks for taking the time to look at my work.
I am a full-time photographer in Essex, based in Southend on sea, I photograph mostly weddings all across the country, working in Essex, Suffolk, and London but also photographing weddings and other photography throughout the UK and destination weddings around the world.
I not only photograph weddings but also shoot lifestyle images such as engagements, couples, family portraits, Pet photography etc and a wide range of Commercial and business work such as head shots, product, property, and small business social media images.
I first got involved in photography when I bought my first proper film camera, a really old Praktica BC1, back when I was around 13/14 years old, I would spend most of my teenage years taking photos of wildlife and nature, I would also spend a lot of time in my makeshift darkroom in my loft where I taught myself how to develop film and prints, back in the old days before digital.
I photographed my first wedding when I was asked to photograph a friend’s wedding back in 2009 and from there my love for capturing a couples special day really took off, I decided then I wanted to do this for a living. It is just magical to capture some really precious moments and incredible weddings that I know will be treasured for generations to come. I love getting to know my couples and hearing what they have planned for their wedding day.
Some other random facts about me, I’m a chocoholic, cake, and milkshake kinda guy, that loves animals and nature, Martial arts, road trips, and traveling to far off lands with interesting places and cultures with my amazing girlfriend Louise. I absolutely love photography and capturing moments in time that will be treasured forever.
If you like my work and think that I can work with you to capture those treasured memories, get in touch I would love to meet with you and help you any way I can
