My Mum calls me Richard, my friends call me Jonesy, most of my customers call me Lloyd at first.
I’ve been photographing weddings since before I even had a beard way back in 2007.
I’m a bit of 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, & try to convince my kids the original Star Wars Trilogy is still the best.
I trained to be an actor & have a degree in performing arts, I also have an HND in contemporary dance
(I was very hit and miss at the dance part but I do like to throw some shapes whilst taking dance floor photos).
I give our pets full names.
I’m a proper geek, I grew up reading comics and still do.
My geekiness extends to ale. (my lockdown ale collection was epic).
I love a good watch and a good pair of daps (air force 2 are my faves)
I love watching professional wrestling have done since I was a kid. I know it’s predetermined, I just love it and I own some cracking wrestling t-shirts.
When I talk I use my hands a lot.
I think that life is too short to be serious about everything and having a good laugh is always much more fun.
“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.
