Short version: I don't we could have found a better photographer if we'd tried. A charming man who's extremely talented behind a camera and will make you feel relaxed in front of it.
After looking online at many different wedding photographers, we were eventually recommended Richard by a friend. Looking at his portfolio we were immediately struck by the quality of his photos and got in contact. We had a quick skype call to discuss our date and plans where Richard invited us to come and meet him a the wedding fair held in the Excel Centre.
Meeting him in person my fiancé, Richard immediately made us feel relaxed about the upcoming event and we further discussed the different packages he had available. Both of us are very camera shy so we decided to book in an engagement shoot before the big day.
We spent a wonderful evening in the streets of London where Richard helped us relax more in front of the camera. His cheerful, easy-going demeanour made us feel much more comfortable and much less camera shy and we ended up with a wonderful set of pre-wedding photos.
Fast forward to the big day and all I can say is that Richard went above and beyond what could have been expected. Not only did he capture some wonderful memories that we will cherish the rest of our lives, he also somehow kept the entire day running on track checking in with our different suppliers to make sure that everyone was where they needed to be.
Throughout the service and reception, he was discreet when necessary and patient when it came to the group shots. Richard also managed to find time to steal my wife and I away for some quiet moments without us missing anything else.
It seems that he managed to be in ten places at once during the day and we couldn't have been happier.
As my father put it, "the best photos I have ever seen"
