this is us
We’re Marta and Artur (pronounced R2 – yep, like a Star Wars droid), and we’re pleased to meet you.
We work as a team when shooting weddings, and we’ve shot nearly 400 together over the years. Working with two photographers will always result in a more interesting selection of images, because you’ve got two brains, four eyes and two points of view whirring away on the job.
But working with two people who know each other inside out, finish each other’s sandwiches and can communicate with looks, head nods and other tiny wordless gestures will guarantee you a seamless experience and a collection of really nuanced, bold and artistic imagery that expresses the story of your wedding day.
We complement each other well, because we naturally zone in on different things during a wedding:
We’re yin and yang
Chalk and cheese
Art and science
Friendly chatterbox and silent ninja…
And we’re both totally invested in you and your crazy beautiful celebration of love.
Marta’s the hugger of the team. An infectious giggler, multi-lingual Marta loves freedom, films meant for kids (don’t get her started on the Moana soundtrack!) and hiking in the mountains. So much goes into the photography of a wedding, but for Marta it’s the early stages of the process and the chance for a cuppa and a good old chat to get to know you that really make her tick. She’s got an excellent memory for names and faces, and a real ability to capture joy on her camera.
A man of few words, Artur is incredibly observant and able to find killer compositions in pretty much any space. An outdoorsman and a treasure hunter (ask him about his trusty metal detector), Artur loves discovering new things (or very old things, for that matter), and piecing together their stories.

With our two kids, we love getting out and about and finding adventure in the seemingly ordinary. Here’s a flavour of life with The Mays:
If you like the sound of us, or if reading about us has made you smile, send us a hello, and let’s have a chat. We’d love to find out about your wedding day plans, and to see if we’re a good fit for one another.
“They captured so many moments that we didn’t even realise were happening and have created such a magical memory of our day. They stayed their passionate, enthusiastic and genuine selves all throughout the day, seeming so excited when they found the perfect light/angle for some great shots for us. This made for a lovely experience for us!” – Emily and Rick
