A lot of people say your wedding album goes on the shelf for a month and then up in the loft it goes, not mine!!! Every photo tells a story and reminds me of our amazing day. Richard was the perfect photographer with his relaxed and professional manner capturing our day so perfectly. My sister was so impressed she has hired him for her wedding!! I highly recommend Richard, he will make you feel incredibly relaxed and capture the best photos, helping you to remember forever a day that goes by so fast!

We booked Richard to shoot our wedding in Ibiza.
The day started with Richard taking shots of me and my bridesmaids getting ready at the hotel, then onto the venue. We got married at 6.30 pm and seemed to go by in a flash. We carried on our day enjoying it and taking it all in with out having to pose or spending time away from our guests.
The following days after the wedding I started to panic thinking we did not get photos taken with all family members.
We couldn’t believe it when we received the CD with our photos of the day on. He not only captured the whole day exactly as it happened but managed to get us with every family member and guest. With extra couple shoots . He must have frozen time because I really don’t know how he managed to capture it all in the short time he had.
We really can’t thank you enough!!!

When asking friends about their experiences with wedding photography, one of the overriding messages we got was that often the photographers who got the best results were the most pushy and over bearing. But with Richard we got the impression that he was keen to capture moments as they occurred and use his skill to get the best pictures and not have to manipulate situations. On the day, Richard and Paul (yes, there were 2 of them!) were fantastic - unobtrusive, polite and welcome addition to the day. However, when we received the CD with the photos, we were blown away by the quality of them! Many of the shots they’d caught of guest smiling and laughing during the day were unbelievable, and the “formal” shots (which were taken with a mixture of joking and relaxed positioning) were like something from Tatler, with some great tongue in cheek shots as well. Overall, the mixture of photos were fantastic and really reflected the day perfectly. Moreover, Richard and Paul fitted into the day and were a pleasure to have around. From some of the other stories we’d heard about wedding photographers, I think we were very lucky to ask Richard to record our special day.

Without doubt Richard and Paul from Richard Hanley Photography are two of the best photographers and we can’t praise them enough!
We booked Richard and Paul for our wedding and from start to finish they were very professional, accommodating and friendly. Most of our guests commented on how great the photographers were which we think says a lot! To top it all off every shot we received was perfect and the memories of our special day are now captured forever!
We will always be using Richard Hanley Photography for any future events/occasions and can only recommend you do the same!

Richard did the photographs for our wedding, and from the first meet, right through to the wedding day itself, he was professional and easy to get on with. He listened to our ideas and put his own creative ideas into them, to produce some fantastic photographs, which depicted the emotion and fun of the day perfectly. All of our guests were very impressed with how at ease he made them all feel, whilst the photographs were being taken, as did we! The end result was exactly what we wanted and more.
We would highly recommend him, and wouldn’t hesitate to use him again in the future.

Thank you for being such a brilliant photographer on our wedding day - you very successfully managed to organise great group shots as well as getting some fantastic natural shots. When you arrived, amongst all the excitement and chaos, your friendly manner put everyone at ease and we ‘forgot’ that you were there taking photos! Each time we look at them it brings our wedding to life again. You have captured the day from beginning to end and our pictures are a fantastic reminder of a wonderful and special time.
You made it such fun and we’re so glad you were part of our day. We will certainly be highly recommending you to family and friends.
