Information For Louise Richey Photography

Images to Treasure Forever - Captured in a Relaxed and Natural Way. Based in Plymouth and covering the whole of Devon and Cornwall within our package prices

All images you see from me are from real weddings under proper working circumstances - what you see is what you can expect to get. I work with Steve to provide a second shooter at every wedding. Having a second shooter is great as it allows you to see what your partner also gets up to in the morning if they want that coverage but it also allows for different angles to be shot at different points in the day and different things to be seen and captured when we are covering the more relaxed elements. Having a second person also helps things be slightly more organised during the group shots as Steve can help place people if they aren't able to put themselves somewhere I can see them! I believe that the best photos are captured when people feel comfortable with the person behind the camera. By the time your wedding rolls around you will have met me at least once, if not a few times. I like to meet all of my couples before booking as you need to know you're comfortable and happy with me to basically become a bit like your new best friend for your wedding day. Most people hate having their photographs taken but over time I've discovered that isn't really the case - they hate the thought of having their photographs taken and they hate the idea of 'posing'. My aim is to get you those beautiful photographs by helping you with simple instructions and then letting you go and capturing what happens. We quite often have a laugh and a giggle (there might even be some light hearted heckling) but we get the results you're after and the feedback we receive is that we fit in seamlessly with the wedding party and that we make people feel at ease. People often ask if we have been to their venue before and while we have now travelled around the South West a fair bit we haven't been to every venue. Should that worry you? I honestly don't believe it should and that is because we ALWAYS do a reccy of a new venue in order to scout out photo opportunities and make our plans for the day. I love going to new venues as it is exciting to think of new things to do. Even if you are getting married at a venue we have covered lots we will still go and do a reccy if it's been a while or we haven't covered your venue in that season because it is surprising just how many different opportunities and areas there are to photograph during the different seasons. We like to plan thoroughly in order to make the running of the day as relaxed as possible so that you don't have to think about anything other than yourselves and each other. Please have a look at the gallery and if you'd like a chat to get to know me, take a look at the USB options, look through some full albums etc then pop me a message and we can go from there.

We love exploring other areas however so feel free to ask for a personalised quote elsewhere (including abroad - it's on my Wishlist!) Your wedding will be Photographed and Edited by ME. I am a small but successful company and I feel it is very important that you deal with me from start to finish as I will know what is most important to you.

Top Wedding Tips

Meet your photographer before parting with cash - you need to know if they are the right person for you so that you get the best photos on your day - if you don't feel comfortable it will show!

Have a look at a full wedding. There are so many aspects to a wedding day, you want a mixture of all of your memories, the formal bits, the informal bits and everything in between - check consistency.

Check if the shots you are looking at are real weddings or photo shoots and whether the person you are talking to is the person who takes your photos etc. as some companies have multiple photographers

Lauren and Ryan at Pentillie Castle

Pentillie Castle is a stunning backdrop for a wedding so Lauren and Ryan were able to enjoy a varied and beautiful couple shoot with their pup joining them for good measure! Some changeable weather conditions kept us on our toes!

Kimberley and Cody at The Elfordleigh

We had already photographed the wedding of Kimberley's parents in 2017 so it was great to be asked to return to photo Kim and Cody's day in 2021. The Elfordleigh always provides a beautiful backdrop for photos. Here is a montage of their day

Jeannette and David love Salcombe so it was the natural place to hold their glorious summer wedding. Here is a montage of their day from the Salcombe Yacht Club

Truly Beautiful Wedding Photography
Louise and Steve,
We want to thank you for the beautiful photographs you took of our wedding, we will treasure them always! We are so pleased that you were part of our wedding- from the moment we met you we knew we could see you being part of our special day. Our guestlist was strictly family due to restrictions in place at the time, but having you with us felt like we also had friends there with us. On the wedding morning you fitted right in with the wedding party seemlessly- you were wonderful company as we were all getting ready, capturing the details of my dress and jewellery, and even getting me snacks when I mentioned I hadn't managed to eat anything for lunch during all the chaos! Across the day you captured the perfect blend of planned family shots along with the more natural candid moments, and in every single one you can see the vibrant love and joy shining on everyones faces. You managed to organise our family and friends into the various group shots seemingly effortlessly, flowing from one shot to the next and keeping it feeling fun and casual, but also making sure everyone was perfectly positioned ("Wendy, over here! ...WENDY!!" :')  ) You were so determined to get us the shot we had dreamed of outside the castle! With the weather being terrible for most of the day we simply didn't think it was going to be possible, but you were adamant we would get outside and make it happen! At the first sign of a dry spell you had us straight out there and got us the shot we had been dreaming of since we first saw our venue, along with so many more beautiful outdoor shots that we are so lucky to have! We simply cannot thank you enough for the breathtaking wedding pictures you have given us, they are truly the most precious keepsake of our day. You captured the memories perfectly, and we will cherish them forever. We honestly couldn't recommend you enough.
Thanks again, from the bottom of our hearts, for everything!
Love, Mr and Mrs White xx

Everyone Loved Them
Louise and Steve are absolutely crazy and we wouldn’t have wanted any one else. We had so much fun and so did all our guests. Everyone loved them and they put in so much effort to get the perfect shots (we found Steve in the bushes a few times). We would both like to thank you both for making our day so special and literally can not wait to see the photos. Naomi and Steve xxx

Cannot recommend enough
We cannot recommend Louise and Steve enough, they’ve captured our day in the most amazing way. Each photograph has it’s own story and emotion shown by the people captured - so very natural! The day has gone so quick we’ve had a vague idea of how it all went, looking through the photos it’s hard to believe this wonderful day was our own. We’ve so very pleased and grateful! You were able to make use feel relaxed and capture our personalities. I will absolutely recommend you to everyone who is looking for a Photographer. Thank you once again! x

Who could ask more?!
From the moment we met Louise and Steve at a wedding fair, we just knew that we wanted them to photograph our special day!
From the very first conversation we had, everything flowed so naturally and they instantly put us at ease. It felt as if we were old friends and nothing was too much trouble.
They are both wonderful people who interacted and blended in so well with everyone, you’d have thought they were 2 of our wedding guests! Louise was particularly good at helping to relax my young niece and nephew who initially weren’t feeling very cooperative!
Louise and Steve know exactly how to get the best shots; paying attention to everything we asked for and more!!
My husband and I have just been looking through our wonderful photos (again!) and are so pleased with the beautiful mix of posed and natural photographs. They have captured every single detail perfectly!!
I honestly cannot recommend Louise Richey Photography enough - friendly, professional, reliable and extremely good value for money! - What more could anyone ask from their wedding photographers
Thank you so much Louise and Steve! Xxx

Went above and Beyond
I was probably not the easiest of brides to work with as I do not like being centre of attention. On the day Louise had a very calming manor and took complete charge, making sure she captured everything we had discussed during a meeting prior to our wedding. Both my husband and I love all the photos including wedding prep, ceremony, couple shoot, group shots and capturing our first dance. We feel Louise went above and beyond to make sure we had the most wonderful photos of our magical day. We truly recommend her fantastic work.

Couldn't Fault Them
We had Louise and Steve for our wedding and they were fab. The groomsmen had a good laugh with Steve in the morning doing some jumping pictures. Louise was lovely & direct. throughout the day she was bribing the kids with the sweet cart to try and get some smiles out of them. They did very well at taming our guests. Couldn’t fault them, such an amazing team. Will recommend. Thank you so much Emily & Tom

Fitted Right In
She was so brilliant on our wedding day it was 2017 but still remember how officiant she was and just felt like she was part of the wedding rather than hired she fitted right in. And to have a photographer spend alot of time on editing after is amazing and photos are brilliant and you get all of the photos on that USB stick

Hi I'm Louise, I've been a passionate photographer from when I got a camera for my 13th birthday. I took a few other avenues before setting my sights on my own photography business but in 2015 I got going properly and haven't looked back since. I adore photographing weddings, the relationships we build with couples and fun that myself and Steve have on a wedding day.
