Award-winning Wedding photography

Elegantly combining vibrant storytelling with a contemporary editorial photography style.

Hello, my name is Richard Skins and I'm a UK wedding photographer based in Bournemouth covering destination weddings throughout the UK and Europe. If I turn the clock back ten years, this is something I never thought I would be doing, but I'm glad life has taken me in this direction as I believe it's the best job in the world, well for me anyway. I feel fortunate to have a career which allows me to pursue my love of photography, and use it to capture one of the happiest days two people can share!

You're probably in the middle of planning your wedding, or you simply enjoy photography, either way, I'm happy you have made it on my site today. Below you'll find some of my favourite weddings that I've had the pleasure of photographing, and I'm sure there is something you will love. If you're getting married, then please get in touch, as it would be great to hear all about you and what you have planned for the day.

MEET ME

Documentary Wedding Photography

“I want to capture the day as it was with all the laughter, love and everything in-between”

With so many types of photography out there, you might be slightly confused about what is right for you. My idea of wedding photography is not your usual looking straight at the camera formal style that you may have come across during your search. I whole heartily believe documentary wedding photography is the perfect style to show how you both felt during the wedding. My number one goal is to bring out all that energy & life from the day; with an entire collection of photographs that help will you relive it for years to come.

I can imagine how stressful planning a wedding can be, so I've tried to keep my packages as simple as possible with only three to chose from.

There is one for larger weddings which includes a second photographer, fast delivery & a host of fine-art albums. A 12-hour coverage package with a luxury print/ USB box; and finally a package tailored for smaller intimate weddings.

To book my services, all you will need to do is pay a 20% retainer for the date and to fill out an online contract.

I try and meet all couples at least once before the wedding, but if this is not possible, then I'm always available by phone, email or Skype. Click on the link below to read more about each package.
