Martin Whitton is a native Texas photographer who has been photographing people and places since 2002. He has traveled extensively worldwide and has developed a deep love for travel photography, attempting to capture classic images of people and their culture in ordinary situations.
Although Martin’s roots began in travel photography, he regularly photographs Central Texas Weddings, photographing 75+ weddings and related events in 2009 alone. He also has contract experience in commercial photography work with Seiko Instruments and smaller businesses in Texas. His art photography has been exhibited at numerous venues in Austin, Texas.
Martin met his wife Michaela in Austin while taking dance lessons. They fell in love with dancing (and each other) and married in 2009. Martin and his wife still live in Austin, along with their son Roman.
Getting To Know The Photographer: 3 Questions
Why Did You Start Your Business?
I started Martin Whitton Photography because I have a passion and talent for photography. All businesses are in business to make money. However, I enjoy what I do (shooting people and weddings) so creating a wedding photo studio was a natural and sensible thing to do.
What Makes You Different Than Other Similar Businesses In Your Community?
I could say that my passion or my talent for photography set me apart, but there are lots of passionate, talented photographers here in Austin. I believe what truly sets Martin Whitton Photography apart from many other photographers is professionalism (respecting clients, dressing professionally, etc.) and extensive experience with shooting weddings. My team is consistent in providing our clients with all of these positive aspects, and success has followed.
What Do You Like Most About Your Community?
Everyone likes to keep Austin weird, and we love that too. But I like the energy that the University of Texas breathes into this community. It’s the energy of creativity, openness to new things and a desire to grow intellectually and spiritually.

My name is Martin Whitton and I’m an Austin, Texas wedding photojournalist. I’ve lived in Austin (and now in Pflugerville) for about 10 years. I’m a native Texan. My family settled in North Texas in the mid 1800s, where I resided until I went off to college. I recently married the most beautiful and intelligent woman I’ve ever met and we now have a 1 year old son together who is more loving and clever than you could imagine.
I’ve been shooting weddings since 2006 and last year I photographed over 70 different events, including more than 30 weddings. But photographing lots of weddings doesn’t make me a great photojournalist or the right match for a particular bride and groom. I ask each couple that I meet with to look at my work and to get to know me and discover whether I’m the right fit for the most important day of their life: Wedding Day!
