About Me

Hi, I’m Richard, my friends call me Jonesy, most of my customers call me Lloyd at first.

 I’m a bit of a  geek (that’s a lie I’m a huge geek) so you can regularly find me reading comics and getting all excited about the next superhero/star wars trailer that’s just dropped on youtube.

And both these guys are me!

The young chap with the idiot T-shirt (Long live The Wonder Stuff) was desperately trying to grow his hair to “be cool” but ended up with funny looking curtains and an undercut. 

The other guy is the guy who will turn up to photograph your wedding. As you can see a lot have changed I’ve got a beard now and everything.

I don’t have a romantic story about my photography journey, I didn’t have a grandfather who passed down his collection of antique cameras to me. (Mine raced pigeons)

What I did do was danced awkwardly to indie music, grew my hair and wore band t-shirts, read comics and watched John Hughes movies and generally nerded my way towards the best job I’ve ever had.

I’m originally from Cardiff, I now live with my partner, two kids, a chatty cat (Ianto Solo) and our dog “The Hound” in a small Welsh village where everyone says hello to each other.

When I’m not looking through my camera I try to avoid eating too much cake (and normally fail miserably), go for walks with The Hound, & trying to convince my kids the original Star Wars Trilogy is still the best.

Some things about me:

I have a thing where I give our pets full names. 

My geekiness extends to ale and beer. (my lockdown beer collection was epic).

I’m obsessed with watches and daps.

When I talk I use my hands a lot.

I have a thing with my partner that when we go shopping we try to out embarrass each other.

(I’m currently reigning champion)

We felt like we had known Rich for years in just a few minutes of chatting. He became so much more than just our photographer.

WHAT MOST OF MY CUSTOMERS SAY

“We are not photo people”

That fine, me neither, I’m so much more comfortable on my side of the camera but trust me we will be having such a laugh you will forget I’m taking photos or at least won’t care.

 

“We are not really traditional in that sense so want to do things a little different”.

Sounds good to me, your wedding is all about you having your best day. If you don’t care about formalities and traditions or worrying about the little things – you just want to have an amazing time with the people who mean the most to you then I think we will get on great.

I love to work with chilled out couples who just want to have a laugh, have fun and don’t take life too seriously. 

Couples who like to do things a little differently, who are a little camera shy and don’t tend to love having their photos taken are generally the people who book me.
