Very much in demand at home and abroad, RGW Photos are well known for their relaxed documentary style wedding photography. Richard is the creative talent and works unobtrusively in the background so he can perfectly capture the essence of your wedding day with all of its emotions of joy, romance, excitement and love. Based in Bournemouth, RGW Photos work throughout the south of England but are happy to cover weddings around the UK and further afield.

Services offered

Richard loves the opportunity to meet up with you before the wedding, discuss ideas and have a pre-wedding shoot so that you can get used to the lens. RGW Photos offer you the following:

  • Full day and half day packages available
  • Edited images supplied on USB
  • Collections to view on private online galleries
  • Fine art photo books available to add on to packages
  • Engagement shoots available to add on to packages

How he works

Richard will blend into the background to go unnoticed, therefore you will enjoy more time with your family and friends at your wedding and less time posing. He will record even the tiniest of details. From the final touches that you have laboured over with your gown and shoes, to the inscriptions on your rings and the unnoticed tears of happiness; nothing will be neglected.
