UK & Europe Destination Wedding Photographer

My Everything

Hi, hello, you good?

I’m Rich (Clarkie), a UK based Destination Wedding Photographer, and I recently returned to the UK after 10 years living in Los Angeles, California. Huge change for all of us, particularly my two boys Toby and Charlie, who got very used to that California sunshine! So far, the prevalence of muddy puddles to jump in has made their transition easier to accept.

I love this job, I really do. I struggle to imagine doing anything else. After my first few weddings I knew I'd stumbled upon a job that I could truly love. Wedding photography isn't without it's downsides, that's for sure, but I knew early on that it would make me smile, not just at weekends. I was finally creating something meaningful for clients - couples who I saw as friends and with whom I had a real connection with. I'd never had that before and I cherish that aspect of this job more than anything.

I’m fascinated by the connections, personalities, and behaviours which fuel the human stories I'm paid to document. Capturing people as they are, observing and preserving memories so they can be remembered for decades to come, drives everything I do behind the camera.
