Hello, Welcome to my site.
I’m Laura Buffery-Martin, wedding and portrait photographer, based on the west coast of Cornwall. I live with my husband; two children and labradoodle Leanard.
I started my photographic journey at the age of 15 when my Father gave me his old Pentax ME Super.
My passion for Art and Photography led me to study a Fine Art BAHons Degree at Exeter in 1995, which helped me decide which area to specialise in after spending most of my three years in the dark room.
When I’m not behind the camera unobtrusively capturing those natural, fleeting, fun and intimate moments of a wedding day or family shoot; I can be found pottering in our ever-evolving garden, on the dunes or in the woods ; Trying to keep up with the children on their bikes and generally capturing my own families story on film too.
“To take photographs is putting one’s head, one’s eye, and one’s heart on the same axis”
– Henri Cartier-Bresson –
I am always happy to travel for work. Since 2003 I have been documenting weddings at venues among the many treasures of Cornwall, Devon, Bristol, Dorset, Gloucester, the Isle of Wight and Switzerland.
I have been photographing weddings for over 15 years and I will never tire of the excitement; the joy and love that fills them. Documenting the story of a wedding day as it unfolds is a great responsibility, and for me, it is always an honour to be entrusted with.
