We've loved working with so many couples and personalities over the years and taking care of something as important as their wedding day photography is truly an honour. We are confident in our ability to produce the best wedding day pictures for you and your family to cherish for many years to come - but don't just take our word for it, here's what our lovely couples have had to say about Richard Craig Photography...
"At the Wedding Show in the SECC in 2015, I found that a lot of photographers would rather hand you a leaflet and chat to their colleagues than talk to you. I was not at the show with the aim of booking my photographer but, in the end I’m really glad I did. As soon as we came up to the stand for Richard Craig Photography, we were greeted with a smile and asked how our day had been so far. I felt welcomed by them and, judging by the fantastic pictures on display, I wanted see more of Richard’s work as there was no forceful “have you booked a photographer??” or pushing a piece of paper under my nose. After introducing my family to him, Richard and his partner Debbie explained their packages to me in full and showed me a wide selection of pictures which had been taken at previous weddings. His pictures highlight the best moments of your wedding day and he really takes the time to find out what you want and does not just dictate what he feels is best. Booking Richard for my big day really has made me feel more confident and comfortable about getting out photos taken and how the end results will turn out. All round, a really great team and I’m really looking forward to working with Richard Craig Photography on my big day!"

"We selected Richard for our wedding after looking at a few different photographers both in Scotland where we are getting married and down in London where we live. Richard stood out for us as he was very friendly and approachable, and we could tell immediately that he will add to the fun of the day and get on well with not just us, but our guests as well. We loved looking through his work and hearing about all of the great stories that accompany each stunning photograph. There wasn’t an image there for which he didn’t have a story about the moment that it captured. He also wasn’t pushing us to decide then and there on whether to book him, meaning we felt fully in control of our decision.
As we also live in London and booked Richard over a year before our date, we needed a photographer that we could keep in touch with easily over electronic means, and who was able to accommodate our schedule when we were back in Scotland. Richard has been able to meet both of these criteria, and regularly keeps in touch to let us know about upcoming shows where he will be in attendance as well. We’ve also been able to catch up with him when up visiting family in Scotland, and are still amazed at the beautify pictures he shares with us. He has also been great with fitting our pre-wedding shoot around our Scotland dates as well. We can’t see our big day without him there!"

"I have known Richard since we went to school together, so he was a natural choice to photograph our big day! What can I say... his professionalism..(even considering our friendship! ) was second to none, everything was organised and times to perfection. He made everyone comfortable, and even with sugar fuelled kids on his heels all day..he managed to capture every perfect moment..and made some amazing memory’s for us to cherish! If you are looking to find the perfect wedding photographer, then look no further, I cannot recommend Richard highly enough!"

"I met Richard when I was a guest at a family Wedding last year. Despite the most atrocious weather, he worked creatively to produce fabulous photographs of the Bride and Groom. He kept his professional cool, making everyone at the wedding feel relaxed and comfortable. Richard makes it his priority to listen to what each individual couple would like on their special day and takes the time to get to know them really well."

"I was recommended Richard Craig Photography by a friend and after seeing his pictures, I made a beeline for him at the SECC wedding show! Richie’s passion and enthusiasm for photography really comes across. He’s so professional and has such a brilliant attention to detail. He completed a pre wedding shoot and was so helpful with suggestions for us both and for the day. I felt very comfortable on the day and the quality of my photos is phenomenal! I couldn’t have asked for more, he’s a genuine friendly guy and I’m happily recommending him to my engaged friends!
Richie and his team made me feel so special and captured our day perfectly! I’m so grateful for the memories he captured – ones even I missed on the day! Thank you Richie and team – I’m one very happy newlywed!!!"

"Ritchie was our photographer at our wedding last year. He’s fantastic guy! He took loads of photos and was incredibly efficient, having them all ready by the time we came back from our honeymoon. We were very nervous about choosing a photographer to begin with, but after our engagement shoot (which was great fun) we knew we’d made a good decision. His wedding albums are just stunning and he is so enthusiastic and made us feel very special."

"I would highly recommend Richard Craig Photography having used him as the photographer for my daughters wedding in May of this year. His attention to detail is excellent and he spent time with the happy couple before the wedding to ensure he knew what they wanted and the end result is an amazing set of photographs and a fantastic album. I particularly liked the fact that the couples wishes were his main focus however that didn’t detract from catching the full atmosphere of a perfect day. Richard was professional from start to finish and many of our guest commented that they weren’t even aware of his presence on the day."

"I recently got married to my high school sweetheart in May and had thee most perfect day. Having Richard Craig as my photographer was one of the best decisions I made as he was fantastic on the day and a breathe of fresh air on the run up to the wedding too. Great value for money but more importantly his photographs are absolutely stunning! He captured not only group shots but the more private glances between myself and my husband that have become my favourite memories of the whole day. There is so much choice when it comes to photographers and it is a really difficult decisions; mine was no different. At the wedding shows everyone is battling for business. The reason I chose Richard to begin with was he wasn't pushing and was genuinely interested in what you had to say. We have built a great friendship up over the last few years and he really took into account on the day what I was looking for. He is friendly and funny which creates the perfect atmosphere for the more camera shy of us. I never noticed him and his assistant Debbie throughout the ceremony but he captured our vows and the readings in a very artistic way. After the buzz of the wedding and honeymoon, photographs are the best way for recreating moments and Richards photographs did not disappoint. I couldn't be happier with them. Not only do I get to choose my album but I have the most precious memory box full to the brim of personal favourites that I can show family and friends (just something a little different). I would really recommend Richard Craig photography for anyone looking for artistic, beautiful and creative shots of their special day."
