I'm Richard and I’m a Wedding, Portrait and Event photographer based in Bournemouth, Dorset.  I live with my husband and our three beautiful British Shorthair cats (who also pose for their fair share of photos).

My style of photography is documentary and filmic, which means there'll be no time wasted with awkward posing, so you can enjoy every moment of your day!  I tend to wander around in the background snapping away, capturing the genuine moments as they happen.  Don't worry, you will still get the traditional family shots if you want them.  I'm happy to do a few after the ceremony or later in the day when the guests have had a couple of drinks to relax - that way you all get to enjoy the party as you should be.   

I mostly cover Dorset and Hampshire, but I really LOVE to travel, so happily cover the rest of the UK and abroad if you’re planning a destination wedding. 

The best way for us to get to know one another and discuss your needs is over a nice cup of tea or coffee (I'm also quite partial to a gin).  During our initial consultation we can chat about all of your photography ideas: from your pre-wedding shoot, to the smallest details of your special day, and everything else in between. 

I like to keep things pretty simple, so I offer three packages on my 'Wedding Menu' (including a ceremony only + couples shoot package) - I guarantee there will be something that matches what you're looking for.  

Please feel free to explore my website and get in touch to discuss availability, or to talk about any ideas you may have for an exisiting booking.  I'm looking forward to meeting you!
