Hi, I'm Rich, a Bristol Wedding Photographer. I work with my wife Lisa and our aim is to capture your day in the most unobtrusive way with a mix of natural and documentary photos. We also take a few formal family photos to keep the parents happy!


Working together since 2005 and over 350 weddings later has meant we have travelled widely. Bristol, Bath, Somerset, Wiltshire & Gloucestershire are regulars but we are always happy to go further afield. We were fortunate to photograph a wedding in Norway and have a wedding booked in Croatia.

We bring a drone along to the venue and being able to use it gives us a unique viewpoint. It's a fantastic platform for obtaining aerial photos of the venue and the guests and it always attracts attention!

"A drone video adds a whole new perspective and vantage point to your day!"

It really does produce excellent results with both photos and video. The only requirements are that the venue need to permit drone flights, the weathers good and its daylight! And I do have a CAA permission, if the venue asks! You can read more about the wedding drone here !

The benefits to having both of us with you all day are clear. We can be in two places at once! Speeches photographed from multiple positions and group photos taken without you even noticing. Not to mention the informal photos whilst you mingle, the benefits are endless!


It's about telling the story of your day, from the start to the end. The moment your Dad sees you in your dress for the first time, the groom glancing nervously at his watch. The rushing around that often accompanies the getting ready and the friends and family arriving and greeting each other. I can be photographing the bride whilst Lisa waits for the guests to arrive.

Rich is an amazingly talented photographer and we cannot recommend him highly enough. After postponing our wedding 3 times, we finally relented and had a very small Christmas wedding, following Covid restrictions. Rich was so patient with us throughout all the rearrangements and seemed genuinely excited that we would get married in 2020, which made us feel excited too. On the day, Rich blended in like one of the guests – he was personable, professional and made everyone feel at ease, especially the two of us. We had the most beautiful day, much better than we’d anticipated, and Rich captured every moment perfectly. I can’t stop looking at the photos and smiling with the happy memories. Thanks, Rich – you’re an absolute star and you went above and beyond for us. We really appreciate every effort you made and all the hours of editing you put in. We look forward to having you and Lisa photograph our ‘big wedding’ in the not-too-distant future. Thank you!
Jason & Rachel - December 2020
