Solihull & Birmingham Wedding Photography and video

You should enjoy every little bit of your wedding, and wedding photography is a big part of that. Everyone likes saying that the photos are important because they are what remain when the day is over, and that is true. But I think it goes much further than that. The experience of taking your photos should enhance the day, not distract from it. And the more you enjoy taking the photos, the more you’ll enjoy them afterwards.

Professional wedding photography involves a whole range of skills. With time and experience the technical and artistic skills are much more intuitive, so I can spend my main focus on you and your families. Catching moments, joining in, documenting your day. By keeping things relaxed, natural and fun I can help you feel confident, look your best and be yourselves.

Adding video to our packages over the last couple of years has been huge. The latest cameras have made it possible for me to make a short highlights video in addition to your photographs for much less than the cost of a separate wedding videographer. Take a look at some examples here. If you’d like to get started by looking at some gorgeous photos, here’s the portfolio.


Hi, I’m Richard and I’m a full-time professional wedding photographer. I can tell you and I are going to be friends! If you’re getting married, my warmest congratulations. Good on you! Over the last fifteen years I’ve produced beautiful photographs for hundreds of wonderful couples. I would LOVE to do the same for you.

When I'm not taking photographs I like hiking, climbing, eating pancakes, making things out of wood and teaching scouts to read maps. I live in Solihull with my amazing wife Kate, but photograph weddings in Birmingham, the West Midlands and all over the country. It's a real joy to share a passion for photography with her and we often get to work together.

My style is a mixture of informal and traditional - partly unscripted and candid, partly with subtle direction to make the most gorgeous images we can. But I always want your photos to look natural, and for you to feel great as we take them. Read more here.


If you've been to a wedding recently, look for your images here. When the photos are ready they're uploaded to an individual client gallery, which sometimes has a password. They're usually available for a year, but please ask if you can't find them.
