Hello, I’m Rik, a wedding photographer from London shooting in the UK and destination weddings around the world. When I started photographing weddings five years ago I quickly realised I wanted to be a part of a new generation of photographers who were shaking up the industry, shooting weddings more creatively and naturally than before.

For me that means letting the day flow naturally and capturing the story as it unfolds with as much creativity as possible so the pictures are a unique and lasting memory. My photography is a mix of natural documentary and creative portraits, shot and edited to look modern but stand the test of time.

Wedding days go by in a flash and I capture the moments and details that are easily missed. I work in a relaxed and friendly way and most of the time you won’t even know I’m there, so you can get on with enjoying your day.

Putting people at ease in front of the camera comes easily to me so the portraits are natural and unforced. Whether your wedding is in an epic landscape or in the centre of town, I always look for the best light and just let you be yourselves.

I shoot without time limits, so once the party’s going I stay until I’m happy I’ve got everything covered to tell the full story. I like the photography to have a beginning and an end.

It’s an honour to be a part of my couples’ weddings and I look forward to where this adventure takes me next.

My work has been published in magazines such as Brides and can be seen on wedding blogs worldwide. Drop me a line to request a brochure and check availability.

I started my working life as a graphic designer but photography was always a passion. I now shoot weddings throughout the UK and all over the world. Nowhere is too far!

Photographing weddings is an adventure that has taken me to some incredible places and after 5 years I feel lucky to have the most rewarding job I could imagine.
