"Receiving the photos back and being able to relive the day was amazing and is well worth every penny."
Richard exceeded our expectations in every way. We were SO pleased with our wedding photos, they were exactly what we could of hoped for and more. The way Richard captures the emotion and fun of the day without being intrusive is incredible. We were both quite worried about having our pictures taken, but we didn't feel shy or embarrassed on the day as Richard spent time to find out what we wanted beforehand and captured the day in a beautiful yet candid way. Receiving the photos back and being able to relive the day was amazing and is well worth every penny. I couldn't recommend him highly enough. Thank you so much Richard, you are extremely talented & we feel very lucky that we managed to snap you up on our date before somebody else did!”

"We feel so incredibly lucky that Richard was our photographer. He is beyond talented."
“We knew the only thing we’d have to look back on were our photos, so it was really quite important to us. When we saw Richards work and he said he was available we snapped him up. Just how special the photos really are once the day is over is quite amazing, they take you back to that day every time you look at them. To have someone who has captured so well the vibe and happiness of the day in such a natural way is priceless. He is so professional and friendly and knows exactly how to achieve what you ask of him. Neither of us are used to having someone follow us around with a camera, but Richard does it in such a way that you don't realise that’s whats happening. He has this great way of just blending in as if he’s part of your friends and family, and that’s where he finds the magic.”

“Richard – you’re a complete photography superstar, we LOVE our photos! "
"Thank you for being lovely, professional, seemingly everywhere at once, unobtrusive – you have an incredible eye. We have come back to your photos again and again and keep finding new things we love – little glances you’ve captured, or moments we had forgotten. Our guests have also been thrilled with how many awesome pictures you’ve taken of everyone – one of our friends emailed us to say “ils arrivent à nous rendre carrément plus beaux gosses” – basically, the photos make us all look really awesome/handsome! Which is true! Thank you so much for agreeing to join us in France to photograph our day. We will treasure our photos forever.“

"Richard made photographing the whole day an absolute pleasure. "
"We couldn’t recommend Richard enough. My husband and I are hardly naturals in front of a camera. Richard made photographing the whole day an absolute pleasure. Our guests loved him and the photos were just unbelievable. He really captured the whole feel of the day. Richard was also a very calming influence on the day and made a special effort in researching locations around the venue to take some breath-taking shots. We don’t get tired of looking through the photos and smiling at just how happy everybody looks.”

"5 stars is a severe understatement for the high rating Richard deserves."
If you are looking for a wedding photographer, please just stop your search here. Hiring Richard was the best decision we could have made and we are so glad that we did!
He has perfected the balance between being extremely professional and efficient, while integrating so nicely with our wedding day and guests; being kind and a wonderful addition to our wedding week, but also blending in so well that you don’t even realize you are being photographed most of the time. The photos are breathtaking and Richard captured emotions we didn’t even know existed on our wedding day.
Our guests are still raving about how kind he was, and friends and family who could not attend our wedding truly felt like they were there after viewing the photos- that’s how genuine, authentic, and emotional they are. I could go on forever, but cannot recommend Richard highly enough!

"Wow. What a guy. Everybody – and I mean everybody – commented on how hard he worked all day."
"He was there at 8am and I didn’t see him sit down until 10pm. He must have been exhausted. He wasn’t intrusive at all. A fly on the wall. But so much fun, that you’d want him at your party anyway!
He really put us at ease and we were so impressed with the beautiful candid shots. He caught so many moments. My favourites are the ones of Stu’s brothers and my new sister-in-law setting up the ceremony space. They worked really hard for us, so it’s great that Richard caught that love and kindness on camera. With so many glamorous and staged wedding photos out there, it’s so refreshing to see Richard beautifully captured all the humbling deeds and hard graft happening in the background. The man’s an artist.”

"We can’t recommend Richard enough, his beautiful photography is so dynamic and warm, full of energy and really natural."
"He has an eye for stunning compositions, and stealthily captures every funny and sentimental moment. From when we first got in touch he was relaxed, fun and approachable. He was very happy to start the day on a motorboat on the River Thames photographing Joe and his friends’ rowing race, he gathered all 140 odd family members after the ceremony and all 240 odd guests for a group picture at the reception, and steered his way through a ridiculous dance floor late into the evening. Amongst all this, Richard scheduled in moments throughout the day for just the two of us – this was something we loved about his approach, its easy to get swept up as the day goes so quickly and those moments were a chance to press pause and focus on each other. Richard has given us an incredible package of photographs, and the easy-to-use online gallery is perfect for us and our family and friends to look through, download or order pictures.”

"We absolutely LOVE our photos!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!"
"I cannot recommend Richard enough for documenting a wedding day! As it was a destination wedding we were unsure who we could book in Portugal. I did a lot of research online and as soon as I saw his online portfolio we knew that Richard's relaxed and natural style was what would suit our day! Thankfully he travels!! We didn't want to spend half our day posing while our friends partied and thankfully Richard agrees! We partied the day away while he documented it all, only taking us away for a few quiet moments here and there!! He seems to know where to be to capture the perfect picture, all the while blending in with the crowd! Richard is so easy going and relaxed to have around, lots of our guests even asked if he was a friend! We absolutely LOVE our photos!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!”

"You can feel the emotions he captures - his photos are dynamic, warm and full of personality."
"Richard photographed a friend's wedding last year and when we saw the pictures we were captivated and there was no question - Richard would be our photographer and we booked our wedding around his availability.
You can feel the emotions he captures - his photos are dynamic, warm and full of personality.
Richard is always professional, easy to speak with and took time to run through our wedding day a few weeks before and tell us what to expect from him and his style of photography. He was wonderful on the day and the photos are sensational; he's captured every moment and detail with great care. We received so many compliments for Richard and his photographs from our guests - a testament to his skill and kindness."

"Richard was an absolute dream to work with, from beginning to end. "
Richard was an absolute dream to work with, from beginning to end. Friendly, kind and so much fun, he fitted into the day seamlessly. He was also such a calming presence in moments of stress, making us feel at ease in front of the camera.
We are so overjoyed with our wedding pictures - he captured everything so perfectly, taking the time to listen to what we wanted. He seemingly was able to be everywhere at once, capturing moments we would never have been able to see otherwise. Worth every single penny - just book him!

"Richard put us completely at ease and our wedding portraits came out organic, yet still magical"
When we were looking for a photographer, we really wanted someone to capture moments rather than formal, staged photos. We looked through five or six photographers before we came across Richard's photos, and we knew that his style would be perfect for our wedding.
My husband and I generally quite dislike taking posed photographers but Richard put us completely at ease and our wedding portraits came out organic, yet still magical.
Our friends and family LOVED his photographs and said how his photos captured the sentiments at the wedding: love, joy, and laughter. Looking at the photos, we really relive the memories, and it's clear that Richard's work speaks for itself.

"We've just received our wedding photos through from Richard and we are absolutely blown away!!"
Clearly an incredibly talented guy, Richard was also a total pleasure to deal with - he was incredibly patient and understanding when we needed to push our wedding back twice but most importantly, was just a joy to have around on the day itself! Calm, funny and super professional - we felt totally at ease in his company.
Richard worked his socks off from start to finish, capturing so many magical moments that will become treasured memories for years to come, but never managed to 'get in the way' in doing so - I still haven't quite worked out how he does it! And for two people that don't particularly like having their photo taken, he made us (and our friends and family) feel totally at ease and it absolutely shows in the end result! I've never seen so many happy, smiling faces!

"He blended into the proceedings so we never felt that there was a camera there"
We are so glad that we chose Richard to photograph our wedding - in fact he was the first supplier we booked in the whole process, almost 2 years before our wedding date! He has a talent for capturing the most fleeting of special moments in a natural yet artful manner; you can see the thought behind the composition of each candid photo without it ever looking posed or clichéd.
On the day, Richard was punctual, calm and friendly and had a gentle manner that would put anyone at ease. In the nicest way possible, he blended into the proceedings so we never felt that there was a camera there. When receiving the photo set we realised quite how magically present he was though! We have many beautiful pictures which allow us to re-live the various parts of the day as a cohesive narrative, from getting ready to the final sparkler shots. Our only sadness is that we can’t do it all again 🙂 Thank you, Richard!
