I’m Richard, and although I’m a wedding photographer, my background is in entertaining and I love nothing more than to put a smile on peoples faces! I used to work as an entertainer on a holiday camp for the over 60s, closely followed by a summer season in the hotels of Magalluf (that was a baptism of fire!) I was also in a Steps tribute band touring all over the UK and abroad before I then joined a function band for 15 years performing at hundreds of weddings! So I absolutely love being able to have fun with people and get the best out of them.
My wedding photography also reflects this and my main aim is to try to build a rapport and make sure the awesome couple are as relaxed as possible. This ensures the photos are natural with real smiles and not over posed. I love a timeless photo you are able to look at and fall in love with, a moment in time captured and your personalities shining through. That is what makes me love my job!
To capture these moments, I use a varied selection of tricks, mainly my laugh!
Banter is always amazing to get laughter as well as getting to know people during the day so that they warm to you and feel that they are having their photo taken my a friend.
During the Corona Virus, I have worked hard with all my couples to make sure they are looked after and to find a new date if required. All of them have said that they wanted to keep me as their photographer and even moving dates around to make sure this can happen! That is why I love what I do, because I get to meet the most amazing people who I build trust and bond with to make sure their day is simply the best!
