Looking for a Wedding Photographer in the South Yorkshire area?

Hello, I’m Richard, a wedding photographer based in Barnsley. Not far from the big cities of Sheffield and Leeds!

Wedding photography, christenings and family portraits.

Weddings, Christenings and Family Portraits are central to what I do.

My images are a mix of emotions, romance and authentic moments. I work in a natural, relaxed style of shooting with professionalism and creativity.

I combine a variety of photographic styles ranging from traditional to documentary for creating an all-encompassing wedding album of beautiful photos and natural moments. I strive to create images that represent your wedding day.

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.

What is documentary wedding photography?

Good documentary photography is the work of a photographer with a critical eye and a story to tell. Read more…

This site features some of my recent documentary wedding photography images.

You get an idea right away by looking at these posts 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 country!

Lifestyle Family Portraits

I also provide family portraits, a relaxed family portraits service. I can photograph you 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.


christening photographer

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.
