A Bit About Us

Richard Howden

Let me tell you a bit more about me. I have had the pleasure of capturing special moments and events for several years now and really understand what my customers are looking for. My techniques and skills have evolved over the years, and in turn has allowed me to develop new ideas to develop our business.

We now have 2 photographers, Drone images and short video, bespoke packages and product as well as the ability to purchase online if our clients want to. Nina is an amazing addition to Richard Howden Photography and this allows us to capture so much more and speed the the process of your day.

Through the years I have evolved from Landscape Photography to Studio Photography to Nighttime photography to now Wedding Photography. This is my passion and I like to keep it as relaxed as possible and most importantly fun.

Hi, I am new to Richard Howden Photography and have had a passion in Photography for many years. I started with macro and Landscape photography and have developed my skills over the years. I have recently been honing my skills in portrait and Wedding Photography.

My aim is to assist Richard and hide!! Now you see me, Now you don't. I plan to capture the candid photos that are missed due to Richard concentrating time on the official photos and the Bride and Groom.

We also accassionaly share the group shots to allow you to enjoy more of your time with the guests.

I love what I do and enjoy seeing couples making that emotional commitment for the rest of their lives.
