Hi! I’m Rich.
20 years | 1300+ weddings | All unique
Every couple I work with have a unique story. Your wedding day, your personalities and your life together are all part of your journey, a journey I capture in my own style. Getting to know you and making you feel comfortable is a huge part of how I work and this allows me to capture real emotion and genuine, touching, crazy, beautiful moments
My story, well, I trained as a Painter (Fine Art degree at University) and then went on to spend time in Marketing and even in the British Army! Yes, I know, a bit of a strange mix… that story is definitely one for a coffee! I love people, animals, cake, creativity and chasing sunsets – in a few weddings over the past decade I’ve combined all four! My own story is still being written and I’d love you to be part of it.
Relax & Enjoy Your Day
With all the emotion and excitement of your wedding day I want to make sure you feel as relaxed as possible with me around. Like a lot of people, I don’t really like having my own photo taken, that awkward moment when someone says ‘smile’ you don’t know what to do with your hands or how to stand… cringe! That’s why it is so important to me that you to feel comfortable, I do everything I can to put you at ease and then I just capture you looking natural, happy and beautiful on your wedding day.
I blend in with your guests, happily chatting with the grandparents, laughing with the kids or getting crazy on the dance floor – being part of the crowd helps me to capture every part of your day and the love, smiles and tears of your guests.
I’ve been proud and humbled to win some pretty high-profile recognition for what I do. I always count the feedback of the wonderful couples I have worked with as the most meaningful accolade I could ever receive. Over all these years of doing the job I love; I have made so many friends for life. I’ve even photographed couples and their children a few years later, weddings for sisters and bridesmaids and guests at previous weddings – I’m basically one of the family now!
I have a presence within the international photography community and have been privileged to speak at some of the biggest and best wedding photography conferences conferences in the world, as well as receiving some prestigious awards and being selected to judge world class competitions, including:
