About me

My love of photography started when I was a little girl and carried a film camera around in my pocket, I photographed everything and loved to capture memories. I decided I wanted a job in a creative field when I was quite young, I discovered drawing and painting and I loved it, I chose design as a career path and became a graphic designer.

When I was in my late twenties I decided to really get back into photography, so bought myself a digital SLR and enrolled in college. Over the years I gained a love for landscape photography and spent hours chasing sunrises and sunsets, from the beautiful Gower peninsula to the incredible Yosemite national park, California – famously captured by one of my favourite photographers, Ansel Adams.

I started photographing portraits and sessions for friends and family many moons ago, and had my first opportunity to photograph a wedding for an old friend, they loved the results and I loved doing it – so thats where it all started!

As well as creating beautiful photos, I love to play with light, to encourage flares into the camera and create an ethereal feel in my photos.

When I’m not photographing wonderfully happy people, I love to go for long walks in the countryside, paint, sketch – be creative in any way I can. I’m a huge TV and film fan, and my favourites would surprise you. I live in Margam with my husband and two cats.

Enough about me, take a look at my gallery to view a selection of my work and if you have any questions, get in touch. I am getting busier and busier so if you’re looking to book me as your photographer, please get in touch sooner rather than later to avoid disappointment.

I look forward to hearing from you.

After photographing your wedding day, I will edit a selection to give you a sneaky peek – to keep the excitement of your big day going.

The editing process generally takes 6 – 8 weeks (dependant on time of year). Once finished you’ll receive an online gallery and be asked to select 50 of your favourite images to print. Once printed your bespoke etched box with USB and prints will be either delivered or sent to you.

Big tip: get your loved ones, some pop corn and your favourite drink to view your wedding photos – re-live that big day!

*without points 3 and 4 a booking ins’t complete, you’ll be given 10 days from the consultation to do this.

Start the process now by enquiring about your wedding date!

Please don’t leave it until last minute, I get so many enquiries for already booked dates…

 

 

 

Privacy Policy

I do not send newsletters and have no intention of sending them, I don’t like receiving them so wouldn’t want anyone else to receive them.

I will not share any piece of your personal information, in fact if you show an interest in a fellow wedding suppliers’ services, I will give you their business details and never pass your details on.

I don’t have a database, your details are kept in the wedding questionnaire we filled out at your meeting – information which is needed for your big day, this is shredded two months after your wedding date.

If we met for a consultation and you didn’t take up my services, I will shred your information as soon as I have been told of this.

If you do not wish to be tagged in any posts please ensure that I’m aware of it, or ask and I will ensure you are not tagged or any tags are removed as soon as possible.

If you would like any photo of you removed from Facebook I will oblige, just let me know by emailing me at katerichardsphotography@gmail.com, or by messaging me on Facebook.

I will keep your wedding photos for three years – I’m reluctant to remove them from my drives as I worry about my clients potentially having issues, losing and needing them again in the future. If you would like me to keep them for a longer period I’m happy to do that, please let me know.

If you do wish to be forgotten, which you have every right to be, please let me know by emailing me at katerichardsphotography@gmail.com, or by messaging me on Facebook.

Thanks for reading.
