MARTIN DEWATA - undoubtedly Bali's most popular photographer
There are probably many factors why Martin is so popular. But what it boils down to is:
Great photos – friendly service – quick and convenient delivery.
And that at an affordable price.
But that is not all. Unlike other wedding photographers in Bali, Martin Dewata comes with a bag filled with professional gear. He does not use cheap equipment but instead relies on top-notch photographic equipment.
He always brings at least 3 cameras and an assortment of lenses. Of course, he is also always accompanied by a 2nd shooter so that no moment of your big day will be missed. Not just a second shooter but a photographer who Martin has trained over the years to work exactly in Martin Dewata’s signature style.
Here are a few photos that illustrate Martin's style impressively:
Quick beautifully looking photos
Martin is also known for quickly delivering your photographs after the wedding. Typical turn-around time for Martin’s photos is less than a week.
But that does not mean he rushes the vital aspect of editing and enhancing your wedding photos.
How can he be so quick, I hear you ask.
For post-production and editing work Martin relies on a team of skilled photo editors. They often work in night shifts to make sure that couples can receive their photos as quickly as possible. That way brides can soon share their wedding photos with friends and family on Social Media and on other platforms.
In the following please see a couple of examples which illustrate how perfectly your photographs will be edited.
Incorporating Bali’s fantastic landscapes
Because of his passion for the natural beauty of Bali Martin understand it very well how to incorporate Bali’s stunning landscapes into his photography. Couples always receive a well-balanced mix of photos that document the wedding day and all its moments and emotions on one side. And also photos that highlight the stunning landscapes and vistas for which Bali is known.

Martin and the sunsets of Bali
To say that sunset photos are popular as backdrops for wedding photography would be an understatement. And as we all know Bali is a place with an extraordinarily high amount of spectacular sunsets.
So it is no surprise that Martin always incorporates romantic sunset photos as part of a couple’s wedding day documentation. He will also gladly advise you on the ideal schedule for your wedding day so that you do not miss the sunset period which in Bali can be very short.

Popular with clients from across the globe
Martin understands the tastes and preferences of couples from different cultural backgrounds. Therefore, he is equally in demand with Westerns and Asians.
Martin has photographed Chinese, Muslim, Indian, Western, Indonesian and many, many more wedding of all ethnicities and cultures. He has, therefore, a thorough understanding of various wedding customs and traditions from across the globe.
Attention to detail
Martin understands that wedding photos are not only about people and beautiful landscapes. But also about details, accessories, styling elements and all the small stuff that makes your wedding unique.
Photographers who only do the ‘standard’ wedding pictures will miss many vital elements and details that make a complete documentation of your wedding day.
Not so Martin! Any wedding documentation by Martin is never complete without his fantastic ring shots, photos of the dress, the décor and other important aspects of your wedding day in Bali.
