Portrait in Barcelona at Montjuic castleHello Richard! Good morning! We confirmed your photos – It’s amazing, thank you so much. We don’t take picture together so much, so it’s such a nice memorial for us. If we get a chance to go back to Barcelona, we’ll ask you again.

Thank you for lovely time.

If I could give this man 10 stars I would.

My fiancee and I decided to do a last-minute engagement photo shoot in Barcelona. We were in a town for a few days and had been engaged recently so why not? We had messaged a few other photographers but none were as personable, friendly and decently priced as Rich.

We were a few minutes late to the engagement session and a little nervous but Rich put us at ease. For a couple that had never  “posed” together in this type of setting, we didn’t know what to expect. But Rich gave us very good guidance, told us where to look, how to place our hands, what posture we should have, fixed my hair from time to time, and also lugged around my sweater because it was so cold and I kept putting it on and off throughout the shoot. We got great direction.
I might also add that my fiancee is quite the photography snob, having the latest and greatest camera equipment, which he uses to take pictures pretty frequently and edit them with some advanced programs. So my fiancee’s bar was pretty high.

My fiancee and I were blown away by the quality of the pictures. They are stunning and have a lot of depth to them. You can see us standing in front of the Barcelona cathedral in what looks like a magazine shot. Or a picture of my fiancee and I embracing next to an elderly couple, so many different layers and emotions captured here.  When I shared the photographs with my family, my sister messaged me teary eyed saying how touched she was. When we showed them to our friends, they were gasping and oohing and ahing and asking us who our photographer was. When I posted on Facebook, I got so many comments saying how beautiful these pictures were.

Thank you Rich for giving us this incredible memory that will last a lifetime.


Philip-Event-Barcelona-403I had the pleasure of working with Richard on a corporate event in Barcelona and was very pleased with the end result. He was very active during the event, without being intrusive in any way. Before, during and after the event Richard was easy to communicate with. I recommend hiring Richard as a photographer as he delivers good work and in addition is a nice person to work with!

Richie was fantastic to work with – professional and made things very easy. He had great ideas for really capturing the special moments which isn’t always easy working with two small children (as in our case). We truly had a fun time taking the photos as well which makes such a difference. The memories and photos will be treasured forever! Thank you!

A lot of thanks to you again, wish you success and luck, keep doing great shots !


Wedding-Teasers-Suzanne&Neil-019Where do i start, we can’t recommend Richard Hadley highly enough! His work really does speak for itself. Pictures were one of the most important aspects of our day for me, i searched far and wide for a photographer, and always found something i wasn’t sure about. Richard came recommended by a friend who had used him for her wedding and i was sold once id seen his work! Nothing was too much, he got brilliant pictures without being intrusive. He even got a mention in our wedding guestbook!

Emma & Rob-014If anyone is looking for a photographer who is unobtrusive on your big day but dedicated to providing a top professional service then Richie is your man! From the moment we met him we knew Richie would do all he could to make our special day even more special and even our guests commented on how lovely (but also professional) he was.

The photos and album for our wedding was the best we have ever seen. We made numerous changes from the first draft and nothing was too much trouble. We would highly recommend Richie for his services but also his personality – a superstar!

Nuneaton wedding photography“From the moment we chose you to be our wedding photographer, we have been nothing but delighted. From our first meeting, we knew that you envisaged the day as we did and knew exactly what we wanted from our photographer on our special day. As a nervous bride arriving at the church, seeing your friendly face and hearing your calm, reassuring words enabled me to relax and enjoy the day. You made all of our guests feel at ease- so many of them commented on how friendly and warm you had been. Your photographs captured the true essence of the day and your experience and artistic vision made truly beautiful photographs. When we saw our photographs for the first time, they brought tears to our eyes- it felt so wonderful to re-live those moments again and we literally said WOW! Your photographs are beautiful, artistic, modern and romantic. We are so happy that we trusted you with the job of capturing our most treasured memories. We would sincerely like to thank you and cannot recommend you highly enough! Love, Mr & Mrs Lippolis.”

“Thank you for making me feel like a superstar on my special day! It was a real pleasure to have you involved in the entire day and see the extend of your amazing photography and image story telling skills in the end results. We need more walls for all the pictures we now want to display. I am so glad that I went for the full days package as I now have picture documentation of the entire days events, even those I missed when beatifying myself! We plan to get them printed in an album and I am sure it will get a proud place on the coffee table. Ang x”

“Where do we start… what an awesome fella to capture those special memories of our perfect day. Funny, friendly, and able to control the crazier members of our families. Rich, thank you for everything! Alex”

“There is no shortage of technically great photographers out there. Richard is one of them but on top of that he has excellent people skills and a very natural way of making people feel at ease and even making them step out of their comfort zone. I really like his work and hired him on several occasions both for corporate and family events. Each time, I was very pleased with the results and the great variety of photo coverage.”
