Rich Howman Photography & Film

Capturing real emotion and award-winning WOW moments in a relaxed documentary style throughout the UK and Europe.
I’m Rich Howman. I’ve been a wedding photographer for nearly 20 years. That’s around 1300 weddings, a whole lot of love, and a LOT of cake!

I work as a wedding photographer across the whole of the UK, from Newquay, Cornwall to the Roman Baths, Kew Gardens, The Shard, and beyond, including destination wedding photography in Spain, Italy, and across Europe – I’ll follow you across the world if you invite me (I’m probably a bit too big to fit in your suitcase!).

He’s a true artist… His work is a gift that we will enjoy for decades.

Rich Howman – UK ‘Masters’ Wedding Photographer of the Year

Building a connection with you and getting to know your story is part of what allows me to capture those beautiful touching moments. Every couple is unique and I like to celebrate that as a relaxed documentary-style wedding photographer. I want to know all about your story and capture the little moments on the day that mean the most to you.

On the day, I’ll blend in with your guests and capture your love, your family, your friends, and your imagination (that sounds cheesy doesn’t it?!).
It’s just what I love doing. I love weddings and I love people (oh and dogs… and cake!).

We’ll make the whole process of booking your wedding photographer as fun, enjoyable, and as relaxed as possible. My Amazing PA, Rhian, will be on hand to help you throughout your planning and preparation, only ever a phone call, text, or email away. We both get very attached to our couples, being a Bristol wedding photographer and working across the UK and the world means we’ve met so many wonderful people that we are now fortunate to call our friends.

Award Winning Wedding Photographer

The amazing couples I work with and the trust they place in me as their wedding photographer is what I believe helps me to capture such beautiful images. As a multi award winning wedding photographer in Bristol my work has been recognised across the UK and worldwide. I’ve also featured onWorld’s Best Wedding Photos, Huffington Post, and in Elle Magazine‘s ‘Best Wedding Photographers to Book in the UK’.
