Full Description
Since I only have a moment to capture your attention, I’ll make it simple. I undertake a limited amount of weddings per year. Each wedding gets 100% of my time and attention. Wedding photography is my profession and as such you must only expect professional results. I love prints! Over recent years I have fallen in love with prints, I have them all over my house and in frames ready to hang if my wife will let me, I always include at least a small amount of prints with every wedding, even if they haven't asked for them. If you have any questions please ask, visit my website, or give me a call, I'm never far away..

The photos are amazing and exactly what we wanted
Richard photographed our wedding at the end of May and he captured the day brilliantly. The photos are amazing and exactly what we asked for...everyone having a good time. The presentation box with our USB and prints is a lovely keepsake of our day. THANK YOU! - Jenny + Kieran

Rich is amazing and I cannot thank him enough
Rich is amazing and I cannot thank him or recommend him enough! He went above and beyond (literally!) to get the best snaps! He quietly tottered round all day and night taking natural shots of both me and my husband and all our guests, he made everyone feel comfortable, catered to peoples requests and I am so unbelievably excited to see all the final shots! Thanks again Rich! - Olivia + Mark

What is your most memorable wedding?

The first one I shot, it opened a whole new adventure for me and I made some great new friends I still keep in contact with now.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Honest, Fun, Relaxed, Fearless, Crazy

What about your business are you most proud of?

Building new skills every year, and expanding little by little

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

Write lists, lots of lists...

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

Personal gifts on the wedding morning from the bride or groom to each other

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Meet up or chat, discuss the day, the timeline and all the details. I always try to help the wedding run a smooth as possible for the bride & groom, so they can enjoy the experience, whilst I worry about the things I already know they want. I aim to stay for the entire event, I don't leave till I have everything, including the 1st dance and cake cutting. I will usually prepare a "sneak Peek" gallery on the couples personal wedding web page I build for each event within 48 hours, before proving a full edited gallery within 4/6 weeks, available for everyone to enjoy, along with any video footage.

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

A lovely couple portrait, the one that will go on the wall forever, the one the grandchildren will enjoy

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

The bride and her horses

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Take fun pictures outside in the rain, find somewhere inside that could be used as a mini studio, wait for a break in the rain and shoot some dramatic shots with the clouds.

Describe how you got into photography.

Shooting bands and live shows I was working at for 10 years before becoming a parent, then taking thousands of pictures of my growing family, leading to a full time hobby, then learning and eventually starting a business.
