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 studied photography at the Bournemouth Arts University 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 reasonably fresh-faced in the industry.
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, and the rest of the south, but if you’re getting married further afield I’m very happy to travel (especially if you’re planning a destination wedding).
My style of photography is definitely documentary/candid; meaning there will be less time spent posing awkwardly and more time for you to enjoy your day. Your photos will be lovingly edited with a contemporary/filmic finish.
As far as the presentation is concerned; I like to source all the products from local/small businesses and hand-finish everything to give your wedding package that personal flourish.
If you like the sound of my style and love my photos, feel free to get in touch and we can organise your consultation. I like to keep these informal and discuss your plans over a coffee – we can chat about everything from your engagement shoot to the finer details of your special day.
Please feel free to explore my website and get in touch to discuss your wedding plans.

How would you describe your style?

My photography style is definitely documentary/reportage, meaning you won't be wasting time posing awkwardly but spend it enjoying your day! Your photos will all be lovingly edited to have a contemporary and filmic finish.

What do you love about weddings?

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!
