Solihull & Birmingham Wedding Photographer

Welcome to my website! I’m a Solihull & Birmingham wedding photographer, based in the West Midlands but covering the whole of the UK and overseas weddings. By helping you to relax and be yourselves in front of the camera, I will create beautiful photographs which capture the thrill and excitement you feel as you become husband and wife. There are lots of examples of the kind of photographs I take on this site, but imagine how much more powerful they will be when you are in them. Soon after your own wedding, you too can come away with breathtaking images that show the love you feel for one another. For years to come when you look at them you will feel truly alive as you you remember the thrill of falling in love.

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. You can take a look at some of my portfolio, or skip ahead to the prices here.

Hi, I’m Richard and I’m a full-time professional photographer. I can tell you and I are going to be friends! Thank you for visiting the website and if you’re getting married, my warmest congratulations. Good on you! In the last ten years I’ve photographed hundreds of weddings, and produced images that make people cry (in a good way), and I would LOVE to do the same for you.

I take my eyes and my heart to every wedding. I listen. I want to capture your emotions, your spirit and your love. Aside from experience, technical expertise and a strong artistic eye, you need to book a photographer who will truly BE at your wedding in every sense, and apply themselves to witness and record all the intimate little moments that others – even you – might miss. You can read more about me here.

Wedding Photography for the camera shy

I’m particularly good at working with people who don’t like having photographs taken, and I have a very important tip: If you don’t like posing for photographs, this doesn’t mean you need a paparazzo to photograph your wedding – someone who will hide in the bushes and catch you unawares. Most of the time all they’ll get is photos of your back as you run away. What YOU need is a photographer with the skills, the kit and the light to make you look wonderful fast, and the ability to make you confident and feel great. I have literally lost count of the number of brides and grooms who told me they “never look good in photos”, but were thrilled and completely blown away by their wedding photographs. They looked so happy, so free and in love. Not sure if I really can do the same thing for you? Here, I’ll prove it.

“We wanted our wedding photographs to be unique and personal and special and they were. Richard you were fabulous both in the lead up to the wedding and on the day. Thankyou so much for capturing the spirit of our wedding so beautifully.”
- Damian & Abi, Croxton 2013

Your wedding photographs can be printed in your own custom designed, handmade album or presented on DVD-ROM so you can make your own prints. I offer both the full-page spread storybooks and matted/overlay style, but each is simple and timeless, showing off your wedding perfectly.

Every wedding package includes your files on disk, and you can add other products, or choose from packages here.

Looking for your photo gallery?

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.
