Hi, my name is Richard and I am a Wedding Photographer based in Basildon in Essex. I have been pointing my camera at anything and everything for over 30 years now, but Wedding Photography is my thing. I first got in to photography as a young man when I was serving in the Army, from there I went on to do a diploma course when I re-joined civilian life. Even though I have done many different jobs and worn many different hats in my time, photography has been an ever present thing and is now my life. Over the years I have gone from using film cameras and having my own darkroom, to what we have now, nice digital things and computers.
My approach to Wedding Photography is that of a documentary (reportage) style. I aim to capture those candid, spur of the moment pictures, whilst not being a distraction and getting in the way. This gives way to more natural looking images that preserve the joy and happiness of the day. I am passionate about what I do and my only goal is to ensure that your day goes without a hitch and that you are over the moon with the results.
I am married to the most wonderful woman, Tina. We have been married for quarter of a century now and we have two amazing grown up boys. I should point out as well that my better half doubles up as my assistant on the day.
Whilst I am based in Essex, I am more than happy to load up and take the show on the road. There are so many stunning locations in this country of ours. Get out there and enjoy it.
