Hello, my name is Richard Skins and I’m a documentary wedding photographer based in Dorset. If I turn the clock back 10 years this is something I never thought I would be doing but I’m glad life has taken me in this direction as I believe it’s the best job in the world, well for me anyway. I feel extremely lucky to have a career which allows me to pursue my love of photography, and use it to capture one of the happiest days two people can share!

Full Day Coverage
I don’t want to miss a shot and the only way to do that is to make sure I’m there from getting ready to the dancing pictures towards the end of the night, but I will need to sleep at some point.
A gorgeous online gallery to show all the photographs to your family and friends for one year, subscription after.
Sometimes a second photographer can help with larger weddings. I would only
Folio albums, a UK-based Company, handcrafts all the albums that I design. Not only do these look fantastic, but are ethically sourced, handmade and created
Willing To Travel
Love to travel so yes!
Richard – you’re a complete photography superstar, we LOVE our photos! Thank you for being lovely, professional, seemingly everywhere at once, unobtrusive – you have an incredible eye. We have come back to your photos again and again and keep finding new things we love – little glances you’ve captured, or moments we had forgotten. Our guests have also been thrilled with how many awesome pictures you’ve taken of everyone – one of our friends emailed us to say “ils arrivent à nous rendre carrément plus beaux gosses” – basically, the photos make us all look really awesome/handsome! Which is true! Thank you so much for agreeing to join us in France to photograph our day. We will treasure our photos forever.
Richard is a clever man. He creates beautiful wedding photographs, which are both romantic and fun, but overall genuine. He is able to capture the real essence and feeling of a wedding day, whilst also creating magical imagery, photos which my husband and I will treasure forever.
The majority of our conversation prior to the wedding was via email, but I knew from our first correspondence that Richard is both professional and personable. He took an interest in many elements of the wedding, and was able to offer me advice and reassurance about my concerns.
On the day Richard was a star, calm and in control, whilst also seeming to disappear between the guests snapping away. The formal shots were smooth and swift and made fun through Richard’s simple (not gimmicky!) ideas. It was a total pleasure to have Richard at our wedding.
