Richard Payne Photographer
I like to think of myself as a London wedding photographer who shoots in a style not associated with your typical wedding photography. Most of the day is shot in a documentary reportage style, which is very unobtrusive. I will pick moments throughout the day to capture memories and natural emotions. I also find time to photograph the two of you together without keeping you from your party.
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 photographer’s 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!
All my black and white photography is shot on 35mm film which I then hand print in my studio – the traditional way.
Get in touch if you’d like to know more.
