We just wanted to send you our sincere thanks for all your hard work, patience, professionalism and personal attention you’ve shown during the months leading up to our wedding. I had nightmares of prolonged ‘photo-shoots’ that take up hours of the day where everyone gets very bored and hungry!
Thank goodness we chose you to be our photographer – your discretion and efficiency in focusing on the ‘natural’ progression of the day(s) was so appreciated and we’re so excited to see the end results. We felt so relaxed knowing that you were creatively capturing our day and that we could focus our attention on our guests and on enjoying ourselves.
We were looking for a photographer who obviously captured aesthetically beautiful photos but that also captured the narrative and emotion of the day. We didn’t want photos that appeared posed as it felt a little contrived and would make us feel awkward. We wanted photos that looked like ‘our’ wedding. Not a generic wedding that didn’t capture anything personal to us.
On the actual day of the wedding, through the nerves, excitement and the emotion of the day – Richard was a calm, unassuming presence, all the while capturing moments that we missed and could relive through his images.
We were utterly blown away by the images and continually have guests contact us to say how impressed they were.
We could not recommend Richard more as a wedding photographer. His talent far succeeds any expectations we had. It was our good fortune to find him!
When choosing our wedding photographer, we had a very specific vision in mind. We wanted the images to illustrate the emotional roller coaster that is your wedding day. We sought a very organic and authentic experience, and wanted a photographer that reflected that idea. When we came across your work, we knew instantaneously that we wanted you to photograph our wedding.
A wedding day consists of a million moving parts, but having you as a photographer allowed us to worry about one less thing.
On the day you were involved in every single special moment, although we’re still not sure how, as you seemed to make yourself completely invisible. Our guests and family were in awe when we were able to share the photographs with them. Every time we look at the images you captured, it brings us right back to the emotion of that day. We genuinely feel our wedding day through your photos.
There is not enough recommendations we could send your way, but we’ll do our best :)
We are totally over the moon with the photographs you took of our wedding. There are so many brilliant moments and you captured the atmosphere of the day wonderfully. You were the perfect photographer for us on so many levels and your philosophy was so brilliantly aligned with our vision.
It was a total joy to have you with us for the day, aside from your photographic talent we really appreciated your excellent sense of humour, charm and calm approach to everything.
We love our album more than we ever thought we would at the beginning of the whole process of choosing a photographer.
When we were thinking about photographs at the beginning we had no idea just how amazing and emotional we would feel all day and without the right photos it would be so easy to forget those feelings.
We love how you were able to capture those emotions between us but also what we originally wanted, which was lots of natural pictures of our family and friends enjoying themselves. This was done so unobtrusively, even the ‘getting ready’ bits that Kate was initially reluctant to do but is now so pleased that we have those moments. It’s generally been such a pleasure to work with you and we will be sad not to see you again- we’ll just keep pushing your services on all our engaged friends!
Getting the right photographer was very important to us. Not being that comfortable in front of a camera, the last thing we wanted were cheesy, staged photos with too many special effects.
We were looking for an experienced photographer who could, discreetly, capture the feeling of our day without making us feel uncomfortable. We found Richard after recommendation from a family friend. He thoroughly exceeded our expectations. The whole experience was effortless. He was a joy to work with from day one – so calm and professional – immediately putting us at ease. On the day itself, as far as we were concerned, he wasn’t our photographer, but our friend. Richard has captured our day perfectly and caught some very special and intimate moments, that are truly characteristic of us, our family and our friends. We cannot thank him enough for these wonderful, lasting memories.
We had something specific in mind for our wedding photography – a photographic essay of the day, capturing the beautiful moments as they happened rather than staging them. Richard Harris delivered this and much more. Looking through the photographs, he was everywhere on the day (though we barely noticed him), and the emotions and scenes he framed were priceless, authentic. I’m so very glad he was our photographer!
We wanted images that would be timeless and not just following the latest photographic styles and Richard delivered exactly what we were looking for. He was unobtrusive and professional throughout and captured so many wonderful moments which we would never have seen without him.
He took his time to really understand what we wanted from our album and put together something which we will cherish for the rest of our lives.
I had already spoken to several photographers who were more concerned about telling me what I wanted rather than listening. You made us feel at ease and seemed to 'get us' from day one.
Your attention to detail and the thought you have put in has been second to none since the very beginning! We feel that we chose the best photographer out there!
