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 extremely lucky 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!
I focus on a documentary style of wedding photography; it 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 precisely how the day was! Not some staged part, which only tells a fraction about who you both are.
I’ve photographed weddings throughout the country, and love to discover new places because of my job. So wherever you’re getting married, then please get in touch. If you’re intrigued to see some of my weddings then check out Becky & Jack’s Wedding at North Cadbury Court, Luisa & Jack’s Furtho Manor Farm Tipi Wedding, Alice & Ben’s fun wedding at Wick’s Bottom Barn in Wiltshire or even Caitlin & Stuart’s gorgeous Anran wedding in Devon.
Even though I love UK weddings, I also now focus on destination weddings, across Europe. I love travelling, to breath new smells, to eat different food and to have new experiences is very exciting to me, so to combine that with my job felt like a perfect direction to travel. I’ve been lucky enough to photograph weddings in the Alps in Switzerland, gorgeous vineyard weddings in Italy, Rustic chateau weddings in France & even a vibrant destination wedding at Quinta de Sant’Ana in Portugal, hopefully, lots more exciting places to come!
