Richard Payne Photographer

I like to think of myself as a photographer who shoots in a style not associated with your typical wedding photography. 95% of the day is documentary reportage style, and very unobtrusive. I will pick moments throughout the day to spend time photographing the two of you but my aim is to get you back to your party as quickly as possible.

I am very passionate about my style of photography and all of my processes. I find the words “reportage” and “documentary” are really thrown around today and very often have no resemblance to a photographers work.

I hope that after looking at my portfolios you will see that my work can be described as such. I think to be good at this you shouldn’t fill your head with too many pre-conceived ideas, who knows what’s going to happen unless you’re going to pose it!

“A photographer must always work with the greatest respect for his subject and in terms of his own point of view.”
