Bristol Wedding Photographer

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 over 15 years. That’s more than 800 weddings, a whole lot of love and a LOT of cake!

As a wedding photographer in Bristol, I also work in Bath, Somerset, Gloucestershire and the surrounding areas. From Newquay, Cornwall to 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!).

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 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 Bristol 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.

“Your wedding is truly the best day of your life and therefore there is high emotion throughout the day. Rich was able to freeze frame these precious moments with every picture telling a part of the story of the day”

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 on World’s Best Wedding Photos, Huffington Post and in Elle Magazine.

UK Wedding Photographer of the Year!

Winning UK Wedding Photographer of the Year in 2020 and 2019 from the ‘Masters of Wedding Photography’ had been a huge achievement for me, with 41 lifetime awards from the organisation. I’ve also been privileged to speak to top wedding photographers at some of the biggest and best wedding photography conferences in the world, as well as being selected to judge some world class wedding photography competitions over the past decade.
