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.
All the best
