Lynn Martin Photography
Lynn Martin had a ten year photographic career in the State of Missouri before moving to Oklahoma in1969. While in Missouri, Lynn worked as a photographer/writer in the public relations department of the Jewish Hospital of St. Louis.
Since the hospital was a “teaching” hospital, surgeons soon asked Lynn to provide operating room close-up images for their classes. This experience helped broaden Lynn’s experience in the field of “commercial” photography.
Because of the large Jewish community, Lynn soon learned the customs of Jewish weddings, which were far different than the Christian weddings he had photographed for many years.
In his last year in Missouri, Lynn was named “Wedding Photographer of the Year” by the Missouri Professional Photographers Association.”
Lynn’s photographic education was obtained at the Winona School of Photography operated by the Professional Photographers of America when it was located in Winona Lake, Indiana. He has earned eight national merit print awards from the Professional Photographers of America.
Before moving to Oklahoma, Lynn studied, but did not complete degrees in Electrical Engineering at UMR and Radio-TV journalism at UMC.
Lynn and his wife moved to Alva, Oklahoma to purchase the radio station which they operated for 20 years. During that time, Lynn continued his photographic work, opening a store front studio in 1972
Lynn also completed his college degree in Alva with a bachelors degree in psychology, with minors in computer science and math. Lynn is a licensed pilot with over 3000 hours as pilot in command.
With his own aircraft, Lynn not only provides aerial photography services, but uses it to travel to photograph weddings for discerning couples around the nation.
Lynn Martin Photography has now photographed over 4000 weddings. The studio in Alva generally operates with two other full-time employees and two part time employees.
The studio is in the top 10% of customers in business volume at the largest color lab in the nation.
Travis and I love all of the pictures you took of our wedding. We are absolutely thrilled that you came with us and we would not change a thing either. I am excited to order some larger pictures.
Our lives have been a bit crazy as I am working full time (again:)) and Travis and I are in the midst of relocating to Oklahoma with in the next few months. Everyone I have shown our wedding book to was just amazed at what a wonderful job you did.
Travis and I know for sure that we HAD to have YOU as our photographer and we are honored and blessed to have our wedding captured by you. Thank you.
I would love to hear the audio from the ceremony and I sure hope it does turn out. Let us know and we would love to order a copy from you.
THANK YOU ALWAYS
Kristie & Travis Jones
