For me, photography is a window into my subjects’ lives and world. I use photography to capture a slice of life. My passion for the captured image is evident in my work and the reason why I have chosen to specialize in wedding photography, portraiture, and life events.

KIM MARTIN

Kim is an energetic artist at heart, which allows her to capture creative images that surpass typical wedding photography. She has a charismatic, photojournalistic style that is unobtrusive and sets you and your guests at ease. She acquired many of her documentary style techniques while studying filmmaking in San Francisco.  After attending film school San Francisco, she worked in New York City in the film industry. Following September 11th, 2001, moved back to Vermont to be closer to her family. Kim used this as an opportunity to change directions with her passion for the visual arts. She decided to take on still photography professionally while obtaining a Masters In Education to enable her to teach high school art, specifically photography.

"As our friends around us all got married, wedding photography was making a connection with me. I started my business in still photography in 2005. I shot all of my early weddings in film, using my purist roots in cinema and storytelling to help develop my own style. I made the jump to digital early and now shoot almost exclusively in digital format. I'll pull out an old medium format camera if the occasion calls for it, but I've found I can really push myself in the digital realm."

Kim has four daughters: Violette, Saige, Olive, and Rose. They make wonderful subjects for her camera, and in addition to an artistic sensibility, they seem to have a bit of the shutter bug themselves. They love picking up the point and shoot cameras and creating a record of their point of view. 

"Now, I live in Jeffersonville, at the base of Smugglers' Notch and Mansfield. I'm enjoying life as a single mom, snowboard instructor, artist, Jill of All Trades, problem solver, gardener, the list goes on. Of all things, photography has become my tool for expression that suits me best."
