Testimonials

Tori, Boudoir

Had a fantastic shoot yesterday with Richard at a location of my choice. From the first email he made me feel comfortable, which is hugely important for me as I’m normally quite shy in front of a camera!  He has a fab eye for where to get the best shots, gave really good direction for poses and at one point even gave me fashion advice!! 🙂
This resulted in some gorgeous images and my confidence being boosted! I have already recommended him to friends and I would 100% do it all over again! Thank you so much Richard, you’re a star!

Susan & Garrie Day, Wedding

Richard photographed our wedding for us and from start to finish was absolutely fantastic.
Capturing photo’s of the whole weekends celebrations, starting on the Friday evening at a BBQ, to a distillery tour on the morning of our wedding, topped off with a fabulous set of photos of our wedding ceremony and reception.
The selection of photos was excellent, capturing everything from natural candid shots of us and our families to posed group shots as well.
We can’t recommend Richard highly enough, we were extremely happy with the quality and selection to choose from of our exceptional wedding photos.

Katy Million, Boudoir

Richard had an amazing knack of putting me at ease while still remaining professional. He clearly knows exactly what he’s doing. I really enjoyed the entire process, especially the input in the editing process. HE DID AN INCREDIBLE JOB. Not only would i recommend him, i have! To anyone that has talked about having photos done (and they’ve been just as happy with the results as me). I’ve used him again for family and event shoots and am looking forward to doing it again. This is simply because he is really is that good.

Rob & Ali Fuller, Wedding

Previously having used Richard’s services and being so pleased with the results, Ali and I could not think of anyone better to capture images of our wedding celebration that we would treasure for many years to come. Together with the professional and considerate approach, what really impressed us was Richard’s energy and creative support throughout the big day and afterwards when choosing our album – his efforts have provided a wonderful collection of memories and we are truly grateful. Rob n’ Ali.

Pamela & Calvin Cowley, Wedding

Planning my wedding was the most special and exciting time. When thinking about a photographer I wanted to make sure I found someone who listen to what I wanted and help me get the best out of my photos. My first meeting with Richard was great. He made us feel very relaxed and was really approachable. My wedding day was amazing and I loved every shot Richard took. Wouldn’t have chosen anyone else. Thank you so much. Mrs C.

Grant & Lisa Miller, Wedding

When we chose Richard Shepherd as our wedding photographer his service was fantastic from start to finish. He talked to us in detail about what we wanted to make our day special, he visited the wedding venue to figure out where we could get the best shots and he organised all of the group photos in advance to make the day as hassle free as possible.
On the day Richard was professional, well organised and took hundreds of absolutely amazing photographs! We were very pleased with the results and have some wonderful memories of our wedding day thanks to Richard. We would highly recommend his services!

Andy & Claire Lawson, Wedding

Choosing the photographer for our wedding we found was one of the biggest decisions we made because you want the perfect shot every time and that’s exactly what we got! We felt at ease with Richard, from the initial consultation, the pre wedding shoot to the actually day. Richard was professional, had great ideas from his experience and he was always on the look out for that perfect wedding shot. We would have no hesitation in recommending Richard.

Jill & Darren Barker, Wedding

Richard did my wedding photos and I could not have asked for better: a thoughtful and professional approach, calming and encouraging on the day, excellent aftercare ending with beautiful natural photos that never felt forced! I would recommend Richard to any bride to be!

Robert Fuller, Graduation portraits

After spending one of my most memorable years completing my Masters, I turned to Richard’s innovative and creative expertise to mark my graduation. Two friends and I spent an enjoyable and relaxing day creating a comprehensive photo album. I still look over it now with nostalgic feelings and gratitude.

Brendan Ratliff, Music promotional shoot

Despite being ever the consummate professional – discreet and invisible while he works – Rich always manages to capture the most exciting perspectives of my live shows. I can get on with what I do and leave him to it, because I can rely on him to have an eye for the arty shots, the atmospheric shots, the photojournalist shots, the hardware shots and the all-important sweaty rock star promo shots! Sure I want a professional…but I also want an artist. I was so happy with his work that we’ve also hired him for our wedding.

Richard Thornley, Promotional shoot

Richard has taken some great photos for our website www.fitforlifenewcastle.co.uk We had very little idea of what we wanted and he did a great job of giving us some direction. The action shots at our classes were great too. I was also impressed with the speed at which the photos were processed and the aftercare and support provided.

Louise & Noel Gibson, Wedding

As we’ve known Richard for sometime, we already had good faith that he would produce great work for us. Coupled with the fantastic photography we’ve seen from him previously, we had no doubts about hiring him for our wedding.

The photos have turned out amazing, better than I could ever have wished for. The ceremony shots capture the atmosphere perfectly and we absolutely love the reportage style shots of the reception.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Richard to anyone looking for a photographer for any occasion – he’s so versatile and professional, he could capture any moment perfectly!

Jannicke Karlsen, Boudoir
