Beautiful Photography from Richard
My name is Richard and I’m a wedding photographer based in Bournemouth, Dorset, on the south coast of the UK. I live with my husband and our three beautiful British Shorthair cats (who also pose for their fair share of photos).
I’m self-taught for the most part and have held a camera in my hand for as long as I can remember. I officially started photographing weddings in May 2015 – so I’m fresh-faced in the industry – and have a friend to thank for that!
I also cover charity events for Julia’s House Children’s Hospice, which is a wonderful and fulfilling way to fill my spare time.
Being a wedding photographer is both a pleasure and an honour. It’s incredibly humbling to be asked to capture such a special day for a couple, as it is guaranteed to be one of, if not THE most important days of their lives, and to be a part of that is amazing! Weddings are always a fantastic challenge – both creatively and mentally – full of emotion and laughter, in front and behind the camera.
Primarily, I cover the whole of Dorset and Hampshire, but am more than willing to travel further afield if it is asked of me (even abroad if you’re planning a destination wedding).
My style of photography is definitely observational and candid, where I try to be as unnoticed as possible, leaving you all to enjoy your day. My edits are tailored to your needs and can be traditional, documentary or contemporary/filmic. The presentation of your photos is all hand-finished by myself and hand-delivered to you in a custom tote bag.
I like to meet potential clients and discuss your needs over a coffee, where we can chat about everything; from your engagement shoot to the smallest details of your special day.
Please feel free to explore my website and get in touch to discuss availability, or to talk about any ideas you may have for an exisiting booking.
My photography is most definitely more of a Photojournalist and candid style. I like to tailor my edits to your needs, though my work is a mix of contemporary, cinematic and filmic.
I love everything about a wedding; the nerves you get on the run up to the big day, the way everyone gets dressed up, the laughter and occasional tears and the fun everyone has. Most of all, I love how it reminds me of how lucky I am to be married to my husband. I really enjoy meeting new people and have a long history of working in the hospitality industry, so being surrounded by people who want to have a good time is my perfect scenario. I like to be emersed in the day, capturing all those moments other miss (and quite a few forget after several drinks). I love it even more when a couple challenge me creatively and ask me to capture something their friends and family - and hopefully a few others - have never seen before. Also, I love eating cake!
