Marteen Arredondo: Hello I’m the owner of Our Legacy, I’m an individual who is a creative and professional business man during the day, a kid at heart, and an artist during the night. Talking to me, you would see my passion and fun attitude that allows me to love my job more each day. Well thats me, looking forward to meet you and get to know you.
Noelle Arredondo: Hi there! I am also an owner of Our Legacy and Marteen's loving wife :) My love of photography and video started in a 4th grade GATE photography class. Since that class, photography and video became a hobby of mine that allowed me to capture images that truly spoke volumes. Each image and each video holds a memory, and I still love looking back at old times. A few years ago, that hobby combined with Marteen's passion and skills, and has now grown into a beautiful partnership, Our Legacy. We love being able to capture memories in ways that will last for generations.
Nice of you to stop by! I’m Maggie Blanchard and I am the administrative assistant and one of the video shooters/editors here at Our Legacy. If I am not binge watching Netflix, I am reading some of my favorite books. I am also a huge Disney fan! I am new to video editing and I am excited to learn more about it. I love working at Our Legacy Photo and Cinema because it is a very relaxed atmosphere and our team gets along like a family. I feel like I bring humor and my creativity to this business. Photography and cinematography captures the moments from now to look on later. Thank you for coming to our website and I look forward to working with you all!
Jenysa Patterson: Hey! I’m the secretary intern here at Our Legacy. I started working here a few months back and I have enjoyed every moment of working at this business with some great people. The combination of fun and professionalism creates the perfect environment to share ideas and personality. I love seeing moments being captured through photo and video whether it’s a wedding or a graduation photo shoot. I look forward to getting to know all of the clients that we work with. Thank you for stopping by Our Legacy and I hope that we will see each other soon!
Our Legacy Team do such an awesome job. The quality, reliability and the relationship he has for his clients. Would recommend them to everyone and anyone that's looking for a team who does outstanding work. When Marteen said he was excited for our day and ready...he meant it. Marteen you guys rock.
It was so awesome to work with Marteen and his team. I know we may have not been the easiest because our schedule ran really crazy yet I believe he captured everything we wanted and more. It was really easy to work with them! I appreciated everything they did and recommended to us. Very happy with our highlight video and can't wait to see our full video! Thanks guys!
Our family had photos taken recently in the orchards by the dynamic duo of Marteen & Noelle of Our Legacy. They were very professional & made the photo shoot relaxed & so much fun! They were absolutely delightful to work with. Their work & service were outstanding & we would highly recommend them. We are very happy with the special moments they captured of our family on film. Big thanks Marteen & Noelle! Keep up the outstanding work & may God continue to bless your business!

Thank you, Marteen, for the quality photo shoot you provided for us. Not only do you take awesome photos, but I love that you were willing to capture the playfulness of Logan as he ran around the park. You portrayed the essence of a three year old, and I can't wait to have these on our walls! Thank you also for editing and providing the photos so quickly, I'll be recommending you to everyone I know :)
Marteen and his team were so easy to work with and very good about communicating with us, answering all of our questions, and working with our other vendors. We couldn't be happier with how our highlight video turned out. They did an amazing job of capturing the feel of our special day. My husband was on the fence about having cinematographers at all, but now we are SO happy we did and even happier that we chose Our Legacy Productions! Photos alone can't capture the emotion in your voice as you say your vows or speeches or the music being played for all those special dances. Those were very important details that we wanted to remember and feel as we celebrate our years of marriage in the future. It's the only day you get and you wouldn't trust just anyone to capture it! I did a lot of shopping around, and with Our Legacy Productions, I don't think you will find better quality, value or over all experience. I wish we had more excuses to use them again!! Thank you again for helping us capture our day and all the hard work we put into it!!!!
"Talented & Professional" Marteen is super professional and talented! He has a special eye for finding the perfect background. Glad we trusted him,had a great experience!
"Best Photographer Experience" If i could give this guy and his team a 6 I definitely would! Their price is more than reasonable for the amount of work they put and the quality of pictures him and his team take are excellent. Mario was very nice, punctual and easy going through the whole photoshoot. He didn't make anything seem awkward and my boyfriend and i overall had a great time. Then came time for choosing the pictures, man there were so many to chose from that i even had to add an additional page to my album! Mario was very patience with my pickiness of the arrangements of the pictures and i can't be more than happy with the result. Highly recommended! Thanks again Our Legacy Photo & Cinema
I can not say enough good things about Marteen and his team!!!! We had a combo package for two sets of head shots and a couples portrait. Marteen his wife and assistant made us feel so comfortable throughout the entire photo shoot. As a same sex couple we always dread feeling uncomfortable when working with someone new, but Marteen made us feel so comfortable that our entire session had such an amazing vibe. We HIGHLY recommend him. You will not be disappointed! He is very passionate about what he does and cares deeply about making sure you get exactly what you want!! Thank you again for an amazing experience
When i got married i knew who to call. They are always on time. Thinking ahead of the game. Ask you the right questions so that everything/everyone you want on video will come out. Perfectionist so great that means great quality.
Really great people to work with. Marteen and his wife were very nice and professional. Me and my wife have Marteen kind of a short notice to do the video for our wedding and we had been looking around and everyone's prices were sky high, with that being said though Marteen gave us a reasonable price that fit our budget and he delivered a sky high quality video. Really was impressed with his work and asked myself why we didn't go to him from the beginning. Marteen is a pro and definitely knows what he's doing plus his prices are very reasonable. Highly recommend him and his wife for your next event or wedding.
My husband and I hired Marteen and his wife Noelle because we had seen a previous video they had done for some friends. So glad we hired them. Not only are they professional and friendly but they also worked around our schedules which was great due to my husband and I having difficult schedules to work with. They made sure they were on time, answered all our questions, contacted our church for do's and don'ts (church videographer rules) and they took the time to help us pick a package that would best fit our wedding. They made sure we stayed within our budget and still made sure that they would have enough time to capture all our important moments of our wedding. We didn't get to record our readings of our letters to each other the day of because we had so much going on but Marteen reassured us that it would get done and he delivered. It was done and he was able to put it in our video as If it was done the day of our wedding. Our video was amazing! We cried tears the moment we watched it. Marteen also made sure the video was given to us in a timely manner. We appreciated that. I would definitely recommend Marteen and Noelle. Price is right and the quality and work is great!
I was looking to update my LinkedIn profile photo and needed a professional head shot. Martin was able to provide exactly what I was looking for. At his studio, he took several dozen photos and I was able to select my favorite ones. He makes sure you are satisfied and willing to retake more photos to make sure of it. I would highly recommend him for anyone looking for a professional head shot.
Very professional and excellent job. I hired Our Legacy for a business video at a site. Martin showed up on time and professionally manuevered around noise from the wind and equipment. Our spokesperson was not a professional and was having a challenge of getting through his lines. Martin set-up a tele-prompter and worked with using one line at a time to create a seamless video. We are very pleased
Martín and his team are such a pleasure to work with! Very organized, professional, and there to make your event so special! The quality of their work definitely shows- he captured our wedding day beautifully and we couldn’t be happier! I am so happy to have worked with Our Legacy!!!!!

Yo, residents of Kern County. This is your photography company. Marteen and the team are outstanding at providing professional and hi quality service while sprinkling in just the right amount of FUN and lightheartedness. My husband and I contacted Our Legacy because we wanted to do a unique themed shoot throughout the city of Bakersfield. The crew made accommodations for both (super) early and evening shoots on the same day, they scouted out the right locations ahead of time to determine best lightining situations and they were flexible to our very chaotic schedule.
Marteen said when they presented our photos to us, "in my work building friendships is as much of a goal as finding clients. I want you to know you can come back to us for all your future photo shoot needs." Well, Marteen, you've got a happy client and a some new friends. We couldn't be happier to support this local!
Awesome team! They go above and beyond to make our special day go smoothly! My husband and i were extremely blessed to have them capture memories of our special day! Thank you Marteen and Noelle! Love you guys!
