Richard Skins Photography – in a nutshell

- I’ve been photographing weddings for over 10 years
- I photograph across the UK and Destination weddings in Europe
Hello, my name is Richard Skins, and I’m a wedding photographer in Dorset covering weddings throughout the UK and Europe. If I turn the clock back ten years, this is something I never thought I would be doing, but I’m glad life has taken me in this direction as I believe it’s the best job in the world, well for me anyway. I feel fortunate to have a career which allows me to pursue my love of photography, and use it to capture one of the happiest days two people can share!
As a documentary wedding photographer, my idea of wedding photography is not your usual looking straight at the camera formal style, I want to capture the day as it was with all the laughter, love and everything in-between. I’ll photograph all the excitement and even some of the nerves. I want to show exactly how the day was! Not some staged part, which only tells a fraction about who you both are.
I love documenting weddings across the UK; they’re some fantastic venues across the country. I’ve photographed at the beautiful Elmore Court in Gloucestershire, The elegant Somerset country house North Cadbury Court. If Devon is the place you’re getting married, please check out Caitlin & Stuart’s wedding at Anran. Or if you’re worried about rain on your wedding day then definitely take a look at Jen & Rob’s wedding, they owned the weather!
Even though I love UK weddings, I now focus as a destination wedding photographer, covering weddings across Portugal, France, Italy and across the rest of Europe. I love travelling, breathing new smells, eating different food, and having new experiences that is very exciting to me, so to combine that with my job felt like a perfect direction for me. I’ve been lucky enough to photograph Swiss Alps Weddings, an Italian Vineyard Wedding, Rustic chateau weddings in France & even a gorgeous Lake Bled wedding in Slovenia. Hopefully, lots more exciting places to come!
