I’m Richard, a photographer based in Barnsley, South Yorkshire. Creating images that truly represent your wedding day, christening or family photo shoot, with images that are a mix of emotions, romance and authentic moments.
We are now recommended photographer’s for the Springkell Estate (The place where Kate Middleton stayed the night before she married William) in Scotland.
We work in a natural, relaxed style combining a variety of photographic styles ranging from traditional to documentary for creating an all-encompassing wedding gallery of beautiful photos and natural moments.
I love to photograph weddings and christenings I see it as a privilege to be involved in your special day!
For weddings I strive to create images that truly represent your wedding day with images that are a mix of emotions, romance and authentic moments
I’ll make sure you have a visual record of all your important moments, and all the unique, interesting, funny and meaningful moments as well. I blend into the background, capturing moments as they happen. I feel privileged that I get to capture special moments for so many couples. Every wedding that I photograph is different, unique, and holds a fond memory for me.
We are also regular photographers at the following venues. Hellaby Hall Hotel, Tankersley Manor, Wortley Hall, Whitley Hall, Burtwood Court Hotel, Holiday Inn Barnsley, Halifax Hall, Loversall Farm, Sheffield Town Hall, Barnsley Town Hall and Cannon Hall. We are also recommended photographers for the Springkell Estate all the way up in Scotland!
What is documentary style wedding photography?
My website features some of my recent documentary wedding photography barnsley images. The images on this site are typical of how I shoot weddings.
I always want my wedding clients to remember their wedding day, not remember the time spent with the photographer.
I cover mainly South Yorkshire, and the surrounding areas but will shoot your wedding anywhere in the UK!
Family Portrait Photography
I also photograph family portraits, relaxed family portraits at your home or on location, the choice is yours!
Each portrait session is designed to be a fun experience to capture the personality of you and your family. Find out more details on the family portrait photography page here.
I offer a blend of documentary style christening photography and formal photos if required.
Documentary style photography is a way of capturing the events as they unfold in an unobtrusive way but I’m also very happy to do formal shots of your family members and guests, so you will get a good mix of photographs that will capture the overall feel of this special occasion.
“We booked Richard for a family photo shoot after seeing his impressive work online. His genuine and relaxed manner at the shoot made the experience so enjoyable. The resulting photos and album look amazing. All this for less than you’d expect to pay! I’d highly recommend him to anyone.”
