What style of photography do you do?
With so many types of photography out there, you might be slightly confused about what is right for you. My idea of wedding photography is not your usual looking straight at the camera formal style that you may have come across during your search. I whole heartily believe documentary wedding photography is the perfect style to show how you both felt during the wedding. My number one goal is to bring out all that energy & life from the day; with an entire collection of photographs that help will you relive it for years to come.
How do we book you?
Firstly get in touch and check my availability for your date. If I'm available, then all you will need to do is pay a 20% non-refundable retainer (This will guarantee that no else books me for your wedding date) from the price of the package you select and sign an online contract to secure my services. The remainder can be paid off at any point up to one month until the wedding day.
How many images do we get?
02 This all depends on which package you select and the number of hours covered on the day. The top package will include roughly 900 images, the middle package around 600-700 and finally the smaller package around 300-400 images.
We feel so incredibly lucky that Richard was our photographer. He is beyond talented. We knew the only thing we’d have to look back on were our photos, so it was really quite important to us. When we saw Richards work and he said he was available we snapped him up. Just how special the photos really are once the day is over is quite amazing, they take you back to that day every time you look at them. To have someone who has captured so well the vibe and happiness of the day in such a natural way is priceless. He is so professional and friendly and knows exactly how to achieve what you ask of him. Neither of us are used to having someone follow us around with a camera, but Richard does it in such a way that you don't realise that’s whats happening. He has this great way of just blending in as if he’s part of your friends and family, and that’s where he finds the magic.
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
Wow. What a guy. Everybody – and I mean everybody – commented on how hard he worked all day. He was there at 8am and I didn’t see him sit down until 10pm. He must have been exhausted. He wasn’t intrusive at all. A fly on the wall. But so much fun, that you’d want him at your party anyway! He really put us at ease and we were so impressed with the beautiful candid shots. He caught so many moments. My favourites are the ones of Stu’s brothers and my new sister-in-law setting up the ceremony space. They worked really hard for us, so it’s great that Richard caught that love and kindness on camera. With so many glamorous and staged wedding photos out there, it’s so refreshing to see Richard beautifully captured all the humbling deeds and hard graft happening in the background. The man’s an artist.
