Del Sol Associate Photographer: weddings and portraits
Martina joined Del Sol in 2013 and has been working as a Destination Wedding Photographer in the Caribbean since 2006. She’s Italian and studied Industrial Design in Italy. Instead of becoming a designer she decided to follow her father’s passion for photography. She got on a cruise ship in 2005 and started her career as a photographer. Martina has documented hundreds of weddings in Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic, and the Riviera Maya. Martina speaks English, Italian, Spanish and French.
Martina has a very romantic style. She is a specialist in capturing candid, photojournalistic moments. Her pictures have a really intimate and loving feel to them. She loves to work with natural and available light.
Martina is also super zen – She’s cool and calm under pressure – she’s lovely to have around but discreet on the wedding day (and not just because she’s tiny!) Martina has a gift for connecting with clients and bringing life, light, and love to all her photographs.
We are also super proud of Martina because she’s a super mum! Little Aisha has been part of Del Sol Jr. team since 2016 and she is adorable! Martina is also on the cat lovers team with her rescue cats Eva and Felix. Her superpowers include twerking, cooking, breastfeeding, basketball and fire dancing as she used to be a fire show artist!

“Martina and her assistant were phenomenal. They were totally professional and very easy to work with. I love that Martina wasn’t afraid to take risks while taking our photos. She was like a ninja…climbing on the edge of the infinity pool and balancing in uncomfortable positions to get the perfect shot. I also like that she directed the entire shoot. She gave very clear directions to me, the videographer and every one to ensure we all captured what we needed. True professionals with a passion for their work!”
“Our experience with Martina and the del Sol team was incredible! Martina was amazing. She had the most calming presence, and she was just a great person to be around all day! We loved her! She also has the most amazing eye for beautiful photos and such a creative and artistic view for her shots. We are so happy and thankful that she was our photographer!”
“Martina and her assistant were absolutely amazing the whole day. They both had an incredible energy and kindness, and Dave and I felt instantly at ease with them. They blended seamlessly with our guests, and made everyone feel comfortable and carefree. They were so fun, and had the most incredible artistic eye. They grabbed us toward the end of the night and took us to the big windows at the center of the resort to get an amazing shot of our silhouettes in the window from down below. We highly recommend them both! We looked through the initial pictures last night, and all we can say is OMG! The photos are absolutely incredible; we are blown away by what an amazing job you did. Dave and I, and our friends and family, are so impressed. Everyone should have pictures this fabulous. :)”
“One word…LOVE! We are so pleased with these! Martina killed it, she was so great! Thank you and your team again for capturing our wedding day!”
“As a brown-skinned African American woman, it was important for me to see photos of people with dark complexions in the photographer’s portfolio. So when I stumbled upon the del Sol Photography website and found Martina’s stunning photos of a brown-skinned couple (who also got married at the Hard Rock Riviera Maya), I fell in love and I knew right then that I wanted her to shoot our wedding. I was blown away by Martina’s talent—her photographic technique, her creative use of light and shadows and her overall ability to capture the beautiful hues of the bride and groom’s brown skin. I felt confident that Martina could deliver the gorgeous shots that I wanted of Jubba and I on our wedding day.”
“Martina! Quiero agradecerte infinitamente por haber sido parte de nuestra boda y tenernos tanta paciencia! Jaja éramos tantos! Imagino que fue súper difícil el ponernos a todos en orden. La verdad nos sentimos muy a gusto con ustedes y mis amigos me comentaron que las tomas que estabas haciendo con nuestras cositas eran lo máximo!! Se notaba tu profesionalismo y tu creatividad!”
“Martina and her assistant were absolutely amazing to work with. Not only are they extremely talented, but also energetic and fun, too! Shawn and I caught them dancing to 50 Cent in the background and that made our night! :) ”
