Born in Alaska and with a most colorful and well-travelled past, Marthanna's training comes as much from her inner eye as from her extensive training at Penland, New York, Palm Beach and other respected art institutions. Marthanna's work varies widely from formerly teaching at Duke to photographing the much publicized ABC Good Morning America "Love at Times Square Wedding", celebrity weddings to commercial magazine covers, book jackets and international publications, to purely artistic expression. It is her love for—and intuitive understanding of—people that is both enthusiastically and brilliantly exhibited in her photographs. Marthanna captures the moment, the personalites, the spirit, the expression, the emotion, the excitement.
Blending fine art photography with her command of true wedding photojouralism, and with a unique sense of humor, Marthanna beautifully captures the essence of her subjects. Marthanna's photographs preserve a space, a moment in time that will allow revisitation forever.
