Documentary Wedding Photographer

Unobtrusive & Storytelling


I want to capture the day as it was with all the laughter, love and everything in-between!

As a documentary wedding photographer, my idea of wedding photography is not your usual looking straight at the camera formal style; I want to capture the day as it was with all the laughter, love and everything in-between. I’ll photograph all the excitement and even some of the nerves. I want to show precisely how the day was! Not some staged part, which only tells a fraction about who you both are.

So expect me early on, when everyone is buzzing around getting ready or ticking things off their ‘to do’ list. When your dad or mum comes through the door to see you in your wedding dress for the first time, I’ll be there. When you’re both looking directly at each other during the ceremony, and it feels like the world is a million miles away, I’ll be there to capture it. When your favourite song comes on, and you’re dancing with friends and family, I’ll be dancing too! Well, taking pictures and dancing – it’s a fun combination!

Documentary wedding photography is something that really helps in telling the story of the day and everyone who came together to celebrate it with you both.

"He was incredibly patient, friendly and professional from start to finish: calm amidst all the getting-ready madness in the morning, and still full of energy and smiles for the dancing in the evening."

Holly & Max

Richard – you’re a complete photography superstar, we LOVE our photos! Thank you for being lovely, professional, seemingly everywhere at once, unobtrusive – you have an incredible eye. We have come back to your photos again and again and keep finding new things we love – little glances you’ve captured, or moments we had forgotten. Our guests have also been thrilled with how many awesome pictures you’ve taken of everyone – one of our friends emailed us to say “ils arrivent à nous rendre carrément plus beaux gosses” – basically, the photos make us all look really awesome/handsome! Which is true! Thank you so much for agreeing to join us in France to photograph our day. We will treasure our photos forever.
