Chester & North Wales Wedding Photographer
Creative, Unique, Candid wedding photography for couples who want to feel relaxed and fully enjoy their wedding day!
I’m a multi-award winning Chester and North Wales wedding photographer covering unforgettable weddings at amazing venues in North Wales, Chester, Liverpool, the Wirral, the North West and all UK and destination weddings.
Wedding photography is not just about how you want your day to look. It’s about how your photos will help you remember how you feel–forever and always. I create and capture beautiful, candid and timeless images of your wedding day in an unobtrusive professional shoot that’ll allow you to be your natural selves, feel all the feels and be there in every moment of the day.
Tell me about your plans!
Just a mate, with a camera…
My approach is to be involved with you guys, and your guests as much as possible. This puts everyone at ease and makes having your photo taken much more enjoyable. I wouldn’t fancy being told to stand there and asked to smile after the count of 3, and I’m pretty sure you wouldn’t either. I will laugh with you, cry with you, join in your inappropriate conversations and probably share a beer and selfie with you.
I began photographing weddings and established my business in Connahs Quay, Flintshire back in 2012. Since then, I have captured hundreds of amazing weddings all over North Wales and the North West. My time and experience of being a wedding photographer has led me to photograph thousands of happy moments through the years from some of the UK’s most amazing wedding venues.
I am a regular wedding photographer at Soughton Hall in Flintshire, Tower Hill Barns near Wrexham, Tyn Dwr Hall in Llangollen North Wales, The Grosvenor Pulford near Chester and many more stunning wedding venues up and down the country.
My wedding photography packages cover an entire day from bridal prep to first dance to make sure a moment isn’t missed. I’ll be capturing the nerves and excitement from you and your bridal party in the morning, and all the way through your wedding day, photographing all of those natural moments, until you’re throwing those shapes on the dance floor.
YOUR wedding day, YOUR celebration, YOUR memories. I am there to capture everything as it unfolds without the cringey poses, or pushy approach.
Having the creative mindset to try something different and unique. Seeing an opportunity and embracing the challenge to turn something ordinary, into something special.
One of North Wales few full time wedding photographers. Established in 2012 and winner of Best Wedding Photographer in North Wales by the Welsh National Wedding Awards.

My photography style favours relaxed, natural moments. It should feel fun, easy and fresh.
I aim to capture you and your wedding guests having an awesome time so that you’ll have amazing photos to transport you back to all the special moments, time and time again.
I’m passionate about creating amazing wedding photos that’ll last the test of time with a wedding day experience you’ll actually enjoy!
No fabricated romance here.
Just candid, raw and unscripted moments.
TRACEY JAYCOCK – Richard photographed our wedding, it was an easy choice to make after meeting with him and seeing his previous work. He was so much fun to have photograph us as well as professional. We received a good quality and beautiful album to cherish forever, and ordered a gorgeous family canvas portrait from the day that has taken pride of place. When it came to me wearing my dress for the final time, it was an easy choice to make to photograph ‘trash the dress’. He took us to a beautiful picturesque lake in snowdonia, Perfect!! He captured all what we wanted and he most definitely didn’t disappoint!!
SOPHIE FRANCIS – Rich photographed our engagement and our Wedding and also a family shoot during the first lockdown. He is very professional and a lot of fun too. He took us to Chester for our engagement shoot and we got some beautiful images that are still up in our home. Our wedding was ace. He got every shot we asked for and more. And was very patient considering I was 5 months pregnant, boiling hot on May bank holiday and tired before lunch time even arrived. I would recommend Rich for anything. He’s very popular and amazing at what he does. We’ll consider him for the future and keep recommending him too!
AMY MAHAN – We had our adventure shoot with Richard on Wednesday and he is absolutely amazing at what he does. The location that Richard suggested (Snowdonia) was breathtaking and not only did Richard take stunning photographs, he also took the time to show us around and take in the beautiful views. Nothing was too much for Richard and it felt like we were on a shoot with a friend we had known for years.Richard also photographed our engagement party in 2019, again the photos were amazing and Richard made everyone feel at ease and was unobtrusive throughout. He understood our style and captured this perfectly.We have Richard booked for our wedding in July 2021 and we honestly wouldn’t trust any other photographer with our big day. I don’t think we’d find anybody else more talented or genuine if we tried! We cannot wait to see what he creates from our wedding.If your looking for a photographer, look no further. Richard is truly talented and the best at what he does! We are and will continue to recommend Richard to all of our friends and family.
LEANNE EVANS-JONES – Rich was our chosen wedding photographer from many who we met because he was professional, friendly and very easy to get along with and his portfolio of work was amazing. Choosing Richard was one of the easiest decisions we made for our big day and one we certainly never looked back on. Richard blended in to the wedding perfectly and was always around when you needed him and shot the most incredible memories but at the same time often seemed ‘invisible’. He certainly wasn’t intrusive or stand out ish but was equally there to lend a hand with anything, not just the photographer. Rich is a genuinely lovely person to work with, very easy to get along with, and and very creative and talented in his field. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a photographer for an engagement, wedding, family shoot or adventure shoot.
