Contact Harry Richards

I've been shooting weddings for over 14 years in the UK and Europe. I'm based in London and take enormous pleasure catching those natural little moments that simply can't be staged. 
Relaxed people who are just being themselves, they make for great pictures. I keep a low profile and often get mistaken for a guest until I start shooting the dreaded groups! I have a background in film and so crowd control comes easily when I need to stick my head above the parapet. Otherwise, I avoid interrupting the flow of the day. 
I invest a great deal of energy to keep people happy, both with my soft approach and excellent results. 
I provide a comprehensive and flexible service at a competitive rate. I offer Queensberry albums and a range of excellent printing options through my site.

Where are you located? Do you charge a travel fee for weddings not in your location?

I'm located in Islington and generally waive travel fees around London. Otherwise it's a capped quote. If I'm doing a destination wedding where I have to spend a second overnight stay, I do charge £400 for the additional travel day. This is usually only for overseas weddings or for travel to the other end of the country!

How long have you been in business? How many weddings have you photographed as the main photographer?

As of 2020, I've shot over 400 weddings since 1998! I started shooting weddings professionally from around 2002.

Describe your "style" of wedding photography.

Reportage, candid, natural, unfiltered emotions. I try to give you a variety of experimental mixed with more conventional frames. I'm full of cheer and perfectly chatty with you and your guests but do my best to melt away into the background.

What's the typical wedding coverage package that you offer? What is the price?

My weekend wedding rates start at £1800 for 6 hours and then you can top up at £150/hour as needed. Most couples typically book me for around 8-10 hours for a full day wedding from preparations to dancing. 12 hours usually covers until the departure.

Do you have a studio where we can meet? Do you use Skype?

Usually I meet in central London for a coffee or something stronger. As a location photographer (primarily weddings and events) I don't run a studio but if you live in Islington and it's convenient, I have a home office. I do have Skype but prefer to meet in person if possible (Plus, I can't hand you a glass of wine via Skype!)

What are your professional degrees, credentials, affiliations? Have you taken any recent educational workshops or classes?
