So good I used him twice ;)

I first used Rick for my wedding in 1997 when he was a young lad starting out, he was very friendly and professional and knew what he was doing. The pictures were fantastic and of great quality. However that wedding didn't last, when I come to get married again in 2022. I instantly though of Rick he was very professional and friendly we went and had a chat about our expectations and what we wanted. Rick went and had a look at our venue before our wedding day as he hadn鈥檛 been there before, so he could get some ideas of best shots to save time on the day. We received our pictures not long after we returned from honeymoon the pictures were great and a beautiful reminder of our special day.
Couldn鈥檛 have asked for a better photographer and would highly recommend.

Izzy&Dan Worsley Wedding

Wow, there is no review great enough to show how Rick captured our most special day. From the initial meeting, regular contact, to the pre wedding photo shoot and finally our wedding day; everything was perfect. As very non-photogenic people who prefer being at the photographer end of the camera, Rick made us feel so comfortable and gave us such confidence to really express ourselves on the wedding day. Rick had provided some of the most beautiful photos we鈥檝e ever seen, and we are so grateful for his skills and presence on our day. Couldn鈥檛 have asked for a better or more lovely photographer!!
Many thanks, and much love. Izzy & Dan Worsley xxx

Creative, professional and diligent photographer

We obtained Rick's details through Hitched and thought his prices were very competitive. The quality of his past photographs spoke for themselves. Once we engaged with Rick regarding his services, he was professional, charismatic and diligent. His knowledge of scenery and staff at various wedding venues was impressive. He made our wedding photos magical and captured the best day of our lives, to date. After the wedding, Rick provided an excellent choice of wedding albums. I would recommend him highly to anyone considering his services.

Couldn't have been better

Rick was brilliant from start to finish for our wedding. He went and had a look at our venue before our wedding day as he hadn鈥檛 been there before, to get some ideas for pictures. We received our pictures within a few weeks and the quality and range of pictures is fantastic, as is the quality of the album we鈥檝e chosen.

Couldn鈥檛 have asked for a better photographer and would highly recommend.

Highly recommended

We had the privilege of Rick being our photographer for our wedding in August 2021. He was highly recommended to us by our venue and our other suppliers. We had our pre wedding photo shoot in Denzel Gardens in Altrincham, it was clear from here that Rick was passionate about his work and a lovely guy; we felt at ease straightaway. On the wedding day he arrived early and stayed till late with his passion and enthusiasm from the get his. Rick knew every inch of the venue and where he could get the best shots from of me and my new husband. Everyone was so complimentary about Rick and said how lovely he was and how he made everyone feel relaxed and comfortable, we have no hesitation in recommending Rick. Thank you again for photographing our wedding, Kaley and Tom.

Wedding photography

From the outset Rick was friendly and approachable. He remained so even when we had to postpone due to Covid. He was helpful and understanding throughout challenging and uncertain times.
When the big day arrived he was punctual, diligent and enthusiastic. Gave flexibility due to constant changing situations without any difficulty.
We have some wonderful photos and fantastic memories of the day.
Would highly recommend Rick to anybody looking for a reliable and professional wedding photographer.

Outstanding professionalism and truly great photography!

Rick is amazing! We would never go anywhere else for photos now, and consider Rick the best! From the first day we met him over two years ago, we knew he was the right photographer for us for our wedding day. Always professional and with great suggestions, our first meeting with Rick showed us how friendly he was and so supportive in what we envisioned. We had to change our date three times, and on all occasions, he was so wonderful and made the moves so smooth and easy for us. We managed to get our pre-wedding shoot in with Rick before lockdown in 2020 and it was a wonderful morning just chatting and getting lots of natural photos which we were over the moon with. We made a vast list of who we wanted photos with on the day and where we wanted them as well! Rick knows Mere Court where we got married really well, so we knew this was a bonus! From the second Rick stepped in to the hotel on the morning of our wedding, he made us all feel really comfortable, happy and excited! The photos are just so incredible and really do speak a thousand words! The thought, detail and care gone into each photo is outstanding, and we are just so happy with every single one of them! Rick went above and beyond from start to finish, and we cannot wait to go back when our second child is born for another day of photos! Thank you so much Rick! Amazing quality and outstanding detail and professionalism. Franchi and Mike.

We booked Rick for our wedding photos he was very professional but also made us feel at ease in front of the camera. He got some amazing photos from beginning to end of our day. He defiantly has a keen eye for the perfect shot!
The pre wedding shoot, we was uneasy about this just for the fact we don鈥檛 like our photos being taken and Rick could see this and made it such a fun, relaxed and enjoyable time that by the time we had finished we felt more at ease about the wedding day pictures itself.

Fantastic photography!

Rick photographed our wedding and did an amazing job! He really took the time to understand what we wanted and visited the venue beforehand so he knew all the best spots. He was really unobtrusive on the day, letting us relax and enjoy ourselves. We've just got the photos back and love them! Would highly recommend!

Professional and personal

Rick was our wedding photographer for our big day in May 23. He offers an impeccable service all the way from introductions to getting your wedding photo's. We had a pre wedding shoot which was included in the package and a pre wedding meeting to discuss exactly what photo's we wanted. Rick knew our wedding venue very well so he knew where to take the best shots.
On the day we had a mixture of natural and posed photo's. The weather wasn't the best but Rick's expertise over came any issues and actually enhanced the quality of the photos.
Rick worked tirelessly to capture the whole day from early in the morning through to the evening. The quality of the photo's and the finished wedding album are fantastic and he captured the day perfectly.
We are very pleased with the service Rick gave and we would highly recommend him to anyone.
