About Ric Latham Photography

Huge congratulations on your engagement and thank you for your interest, I am a very experienced, fun, friendly and professional photographer and have shot over 300 weddings so far...

My name is Ric and I am a wedding photographer based in Manchester. Every single wedding I do is unique and beautiful and I treat each one on an individual basis.

I love working on weddings and seeing the story of the day unfold. Whether your wedding is a small and intimate gathering or a large affair then I can be there to capture every moment.

Please pop over a message with your wedding date to see if I'm available, and if it is, we can start the process. I always like to meet couples and get a sense for you and your style so that I make sure your pictures reflect your wedding perfectly.

Take a look around my pictures and see what you think and do get in touch today! I look forward to hearing from you.

  • "Fantastic wedding photographer"
    Laura on 18 November 2017

    Absolutely loved Ric as our wedding photographer. He was fantastic before our wedding- doing an engagement shoot and also meeting with us at the venue prior to our wedding to talk through photo opportunities for the day and ensuring the day would run smoothly! On the day Ric was incredibly organised and fitted in with ease to the days goings on. I loved having him around and he just captured some absolute gems! We swiftly received our online albums - with photos starting to be seen only a few days after the wedding! We received our printed album and are so incredibly happy with the results! Absolutely gorgeous and it was so very difficult to pick the photos to include as we loved so many. Genuinely would happily recommend Ric to everyone and would have him shoot our renewals hahahaha! Thank you Ric for creating beautiful photos to capture our precious memories! Laura and Pete

  • "From Emma"
    This testimonial was entered by Ric Latham Photography on 4 January 2015

    Original review is over on my Facebook page: Ric is simply fabulous at what he does - which is photography of the highest standard. Me and my husband are absolutely over the moon with the quality of the wedding photos and the wedding album is like a box full of happy memories for us to look at in years to come :-) Ric captured each moment in time of our wedding day and made us both feel completely relaxed....Ric was amazing from us meeting him in September 2013 then having our engagement shoot in May 2014...to our big day in June 2014. We adore all the pictures that were taken.....Ric was very professional in his work and his friendly approach to getting everyone organised was second to none! Booking a wedding photographer is one of the most important things to do - book Ric and you will not be disappointed! And at last but not least; I've never seen so many people have such a wonderful time with the photo-booth - it was FAB-U-LOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!! Loved it!!!!!!!!!!!!!

How far in advance should I contact you?

Once you have booked your venue, then please feel free to get in touch, I do get booked up to 3 years in advance, I have some very organised brides :-)

Do you cover more than one wedding a day?

No, once I'm booked I'm yours for the day :-)

Are you able to travel?

Yes, I am happy to travel :-) I am based in Manchester but will go anywhere for a good wedding !

What is the charge for travelling?

I am lucky to have an electric car [well it's my wife's and she lets me borrow it :-) ]. So, I do not charge for petrol, the only additional charge for some destination weddings would be for accommodation if needed.

What style of photos do you take?

Candid/documentary photography is my main style throughout your day. Most people, including me, don't like having their photo taken and the best photos come when we don't realise one is being taken. I am there to document your day, to capture the bits that you don't see...I am very experienced and blend in to the guests capturing what happens.

What kind of technology do you use?

I currently shoot with a vast assortment of cameras and lenses. All weddings are shot digitally. At each wedding I have a minimum of 4 separate cameras incase of failure. My current cameras are Canon 5dsr, Canon 5dmk3 x 2, Fuji XT2 and Fuji X100F. I do sometimes bring a film camera as well ! I favour primes lenses over zoom lenses, and shoot with 35mm f/1.4, 50mm f/1.2, 85mm f/1.2. At each wedding I have backup of backups :-) At each wedding I also bring an assortment of lights, whether its a summer wedding or winter wedding I have enough lights to light up a football stadium !

Do you use a specific technique or innovative approach?

Experience. I have shot hundreds upon hundreds of weddings so I am able to bring this to every new wedding I have shot.

What kind of equipment do you use?

At each wedding I have a minimum of 4 separate cameras incase of failure. My current cameras are Canon 5dsr, Canon 5dmk3 x 2, Fuji XT2 and Fuji X100F. I do sometimes bring a film camera as well ! I favour primes lenses over zoom lenses, and shoot with 35mm f/1.4, 50mm f/1.2, 85mm f/1.2. At each wedding I have backup of backups :-)

Do you offer any tool to display the photos online?

Yes, every customer gets their own unique private gallery donating their wedding images.

What''s the delivery time for photographic report?

Your wedding gallery is online within 2 -4 weeks after your wedding. It is normally online after 2 weeks, during the very busy summer season I give myself a little extra breathing space :-) I am a a full-time wedding photographer and do pride myself in getting your images back to you within two weeks, so that if you're away on honeymoon they are generally ready for when you come home.

Do you send all the photos taken?

Yes, every wedding is unique and I do not have a set amount of photos that you will get. It is on average over 500 images. These are supplied in colour and another full set in black and white as well. The only images I do not give you are any 'blinkers', duplicates and photos of the floor ! ( My camera hangs by a strap upside down...I always get a few photos of the floor :-)

Do you work alone or do you have a team of professionals?

I shoot intimate wedding with just the bide and groom through to large weddings with 600+ guests. I normally shoot alone, unless you would like a second shooter to cover groom prep.

In case of unforeseen circumstances, do you have a replacement photographer?

Yes, I have a support network in place in case of emergency and would always do my upmost to cover your wedding if I could not. In over 300 weddings I have never no showed!

Do you have the rights to publish the wedding photos?

Every couple receives a personal licence for their images, this allows them to print and share the images where they would like and with whom they choose. I generally like to blog a selection of images from each wedding, if you would prefer this not to happen to your images then that is no problem.

Do you charge per hour or per event?

Most wedding are charged via my set prices, though i do offer bespoke pries for weddings that cover more than 1 day, please feel free to pop over an email if you wedding is over more than 1 day.

If needed, would you be able to work extra hours?

Yes, extra time is available if required.

How do you charge extra time?

It is agreed upon before the wedding, though most weddings don't need any as it is included in the package price.

What are the forms of payment?

Most of my couples prefer to pay directly to my business bank account. Cheques, debit cards are fine too.

How do you work?

On your wedding day I am there to capture the moments, I am also there as a guide and friend to help you through the day. Having been to over 300 plus weddings most brides and grooms love having my experience and knowledge to help them through the day.
