Award-winning Wedding photography

Combining vibrant & joyful wedding photography with a contemporary style

Greetings, I'm Richard Skins, a Dorset wedding photographer who's currently based in Bournemouth on the South coast. I cover weddings not only in the UK but also across Europe. A decade ago, I never imagined myself doing this kind of work. I'm very grateful that life led me this way because being a wedding photographer is the most fulfilling job. It is truly a privilege to have the chance to pursue my passion for photography and capture the joyous moments of two people on their wedding day.

Whether you're currently wedding planning or just love photography. Today, I want to share some of my favourite weddings that I've had the pleasure of photographing with you. I hope you enjoy browsing through them! If you're planning your own wedding, I would be honoured to hear about your ideas and plans for your day.



I can imagine how stressful planning a wedding in Dorset can be, so I've tried to keep my wedding packages as simple as possible with only two to choose from. There is one for larger weddings which includes a second photographer, a fine-art wedding album and fast delivery. Then my most popular 'favourite' package which includes 12-hour coverage, digital downloads and online gallery. For any wedding package I will always bring creativity and be professional from start to finish.

All wedding packages include

• fast preview gallery
• a pre wedding chat

• print rights

• 700 wedding photos

• 12 hours coverage
• Digital Downloads
• 4k online slideshow
• online gallery

How much does a Dorset wedding photographer cost?

Why choose me out of all the other Dorset Photographers?

Pricing for wedding photography in Dorset is quite varied due to experience and other factors like the amount of time covered on a wedding day. I've got three packages to choose from, with the most popular one coming to £2,950 for 12 hours of coverage which covers all of the wedding celebrations. You can find more info about my pricing here.

There are some fantastic wedding photographers in Dorset, so plenty of choices for every type of taste. I specialise in documentary wedding photography, so if you're after more natural photographs that bring out the full life of a wedding story, then I might be your man.

How do we book you as our Wedding Photographer?

Can we meet you before the wedding?

Firstly get in touch and check my availability for your date. If I'm available, then all you will need to do is pay a 20% non-refundable retainer (This will guarantee that no else books me for your wedding date) from the price of the package you select and sign an online contract to secure my services. The remainder can be paid off at any point up to one month before the wedding day.

Yes, I love meeting people before their wedding to talk through all the details of the day. I live in Bournemouth in Dorset, so I can always meet you here. If this is not possible due to distance, then I will always be available by phone, email or Zoom at any time.








So you have a date, and have found the perfect place for the celebrations! Next up must be a wedding photographer, right? Well, I hope you enjoy browsing through my website and think this style of photography could complete your big day. Wedding dates can be booked up to 2-3 years in advance so please get in touch as soon as you have a confirmed date to avoid disappointment.
