Greetings!  I’m Martini Severin a wedding and lifestyle photographer based in Chicago, IL and London, UK.

Though I’ve received many awards for my photography, have had my work featured in Brides UK, Vogue and Glamour magazines, my greatest achievement is raising an energetic, easy going and mischievous little boy.  I’d like to count making my first quilt (a labour of love that took….well, let’s just say years) as a major achievement too, but I suppose growing a little human being may top quilt making.

I love to capture memories on film thus my decision five years ago to leave my work in child development policy to become a full-time photographer or a memory keeper as I like to say.

Aside from my training in photography, I also hold degrees in education policy.  I’m addicted to baking, I have a love for coffee grown in volcanic soil (yup, that’s a thing), I’m invigorated by long runs and to my husband Serge’s dismay, I practice my TKD side-kicks on him when he least expects it.

And Serge too!
