Full Description
I’m Richard, a professional photographer based in the awesome City of Norwich in Norfolk with my wonderful family, Christina & Jude. I consider myself to be a happy and smiley guy with a passion for making people smile. There’s nothing I love more than being able to give the gift of happiness through my photography; both on the day as well as when viewing the finished images. Whether it be weddings, lifestyle, pop up shoots, studio or commercial work, the enthusiasm I bring to the party will put a smile on your face – unless it’s a serious shoot… nah, who am I kidding – I always try one crazy shot just to add variety. I’m always happy to offer advice so please do get in touch if you’re looking for a photographer sometime soon.

'Richard made our wedding’.
Well what can we say about this photographer, from the time that Richard arrived at our wedding venue until the time he left at around 10pm he made us so relaxed and at ease. Being photographed is not something myself and Stephen enjoy but he made us laugh with his banter and infectious smile and laughter. To say how amazing Richard’s photography and personality is, can be summed in four words ‘Richard made our wedding’. Richard thank you for everything X

From initial meeting he has been an absolute star.
We asked Richard to be our wedding photographer this year and we can't thank him enough for his amazing work! From our initial meeting he has been an absolute star. Richard is fun, professional and made us and our family & friends feel so comfortable on the day. Being a very self-conscious person I constantly worried about our wedding pictures. Our pre-wedding shoot came around and although a little stiff and shy I felt so much relief. Richard was so funny, he had great ideas and I immediately felt at ease. Come the wedding day and Richard fit in like part of the family. He joked and laughed along aside us whilst working his magic. So many guests commented how lovely he was. Most importantly he captured the most beautiful images of us, our children, family and friends. Thank you so much Richard for your kindness, joy and creativity. 💗 from Mr & Mrs Croft xx

One of the most kindest, genuine, positive people.
Everytime I look at our wedding photos, not only do they make me smile, it’s the emotions that they still bring remembering the incredible day as it was captured so exquisitely. My husband and myself live in Sydney, Australia and we got married in Norfolk where I grew up. The venue was St Andrews Hall, Norwich in the summer of 2015 (well I say it was summer. The day of the wedding was apparently the wettest day ever recorded that month!) It made absolutely no difference however to the beautiful images which Richard was able to create though. We had an idea of what we envisaged the photographs to turn out like (some might say I’m quite fussy actually!) but when we received them, they not only exceeded our expectations with his creativity but couldn’t believe how many incredible, magical moments Richard was able to capture throughout the entire day. I actually struggle to think of words to best describe Richard because not only is he an exceptionally, talented, passionate photographer, he’s also one of the most kindest, genuine, positive people that I’ve ever met. To have these qualities really does make him a remarkable man who I’m so honoured to have met and be such a huge part of our special wedding day. We’ll always be forever grateful to have had Richard as our wedding photographer. Thank you! Clare & Nick Johns x

Richard was the perfect photographer for our day!
Richard was the perfect photographer for our wedding. We cannot thank him enough for everything he did on the day and in advance. The preliminary shoot went a long way to making us feel comfortable with him and with being photographed so we were so much less self-conscious about the photos on the day. It also helps enormously that Richard is such a delight to have around! His enthusiasm was contagious and his relaxed approach made everything so smooth and easy - it was like having a really good friend taking the pictures. He seems to have been everywhere without ever once getting in the way. The final photos are better than we ever dreamed they could be. Richard managed to capture some truly personal moments in time. He has given us not just a record of who was there but a beautiful representation of the emotional story of the day. It’s perfect. (on behalf of the new Mr & Mrs Marjoram, with love) xx

Truly an amazing guy with lots of talent & smiles!
Richard, what can I say, he truly is an amazing guy with lots of talent and smiles! We feel so lucky to have had him as our photographer. From the moment Richard arrived to when he left, he was smiling and filled with energy! Richard captured everything to let us have a lifetime of memories. We both feel Richard is more than just our wedding photographer, he is also an amazing new friend.

FAQ

What is your most memorable wedding?

I try, as best I can, to get to know as much about the couple as I can. From the free Pre Wedding Shoot, it gives me the opportunity to get to know the couple in a relaxed place they know and love. I keep in touch with regards to the timeline of the days events, to make sure I know exactly where I need to be at what time, so that I can capture the bridal party, then onto the groomsmen or vice versa. My main aim is to capture the little moments as well as teh bigger ones, so if there are gifts to be opened by each other or the bridesmaids and groomsmen, then I want to be there. After the ceremony, I usually give the couple 5 minutes and organise the confetti shot and then get all the groupshots done before everyone disperses as it can take forever otherwise, but it is my opportunity to interract with everyone at the same time, showing them that posing for a photo is not painful, and I will make it fun for them. I pretty much stick with the bride and groom, taking them off for newlywed shots either twice or three times during the day and evening (more creative shots) to make sure I have all aspects of the day covered. After the first dance, I usually stay for another hour at least to capture the evening guests enjoying the dancefloor also as they are also a huge part of the couples day.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Always, ALWAYS meet your potential photographer. Ask them lots of questions, get to know them and give enough of yoruself so they get to know you as it makes for such a better experience knowing that they have your back and know you enough to give you the very best and make you feel relaxed.

What about your business are you most proud of?

I have always had a passion for anything creative. When entertaining and on tour in the UK, I was always the person who took along the camera to capture the memories we were making. I was then asked by 3 of my friends to shoot their weddings for them, which I happily did and it slowly progressed from there. I then went to work for Sony, just as they bought out Konica Minolta and have been using the Sony Alpha cameras since 2008 and never looked back.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

FUN! Yes ok, so we always need to get a hero shot of the couple looking amazing in a field or a backlit silhouette of them looking amazing, but what I also try to capture is the fun and more importantly, the love between them. It's not the kiss I'm looking to capture, it's the slightly awkward laugh afterwards of having them kiss in front of the congregation. Or should one of them stumble over the vows, laughter usually always follows. It's the little things like that which show the happiness and love on the day.

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

The main thing that I always hear in my feedback is that their wedding day would not have been as good without me because I make sure I get involed in the day, talk to everyone, make people smile and capturing the love that is present on the day. In short, I use my entertaining skills to get the very best out of people and ensure that they have the best day as well as the happy couple.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

This is one of the hardest questions but always asked. I think for me it has to be the wedding of Tammy and Ian at the wonderful Boathouse in Norfolk. Tammy had been diagnosed with cancer and was going through chemo, even on the day of her wedding. I have never met a more positive person in all my life! I wanted to capture every single moment for them both and make sure she was ok on the day. An amazing day I will never forget! The pre wedding shoot was just joyful as I got to know them both and we had so much fun and the laughter captured in the photos were even mentioned in the Father of the Brides speech.

What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?

Wellies!!! I literally have a boot full of umbrellas in my car for such occasions. I keep and eye on the weather and if it rains, then there is not really alot we can do to change that, but don't get upset, just embrace it and make the most out of it. If you look in my photos, you will see that I have a photo in the puring rain that looks absolutely amazing. They were a relaxed couple and the rain really did not bother them one bit.

What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?

Without sounding all divaish hahaha (Honestly I'm not... promise) - I have not actually been asked to take a specific photo, but I do suggest a few options that I see opportunities for and make sure I get everything set up for it and just go for it. I will always try to something completely unique to each wedding that I have not done for another couple, just to give them something that nobody else will have.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Happy, Smiley, Positive, Creative, Courteous.
