Richard Kinsley Photography Engagement Shoots

One of the greatest features you can get with Richard Kinsley is the engagement photo shoots. He highly recommends and looks forward to the engagement shots as it’s the perfect time to get to know the couple and familiarize them with Richard himself. His forte is making sure everyone is comfortable in front of the camera, to get to know what the couple’s likes and dislikes are, work together and become a team.  Having the comfort and trust that is built will benefit any couple, in hopes to become closer and comfortable with one another for the big day.

He aims to make the atmosphere relaxing and casual, removing any stiff or formal feel that couples are accustomed to. During the engagement photo shoot, couples will have one-on-one time with Richard and have that quality time to acquaint with one another. The couple will get a trusted friend by the time the photo shoot is complete rather than having just another photographer show up and do things just the way they want; on a special day. What’s even better still, the engagement shoot is complimentary. They are free when booking Richard.  When contacting Richard, request the free complimentary engagement photo shoot.


Richard Kinsley Photography Styles

Richard has worked with so many different couples and personalities; he truly understands what it takes to have lasting pictures turn the way the couple envisions. His dry sense of humor and laid-back personality strays away from too serious scenarios. He believes in a laid-back and casual atmosphere because that’s exactly what the picture will portray.  Awkward and serious ambiances will make for awkward photos rather than effortless ones that flow.


Being in the wedding biz, Richard knows romance.  From the poses to the softening of the photos, he embraces the love between the couples.  The event is a romantic one and he specializes in knowing just how to create and portray it.


As for editing, he’s favorites are the classical romantic black and white photos. He captures real moments of the couple, rather than staged poses.  He avoids overly-done, rigid, and unnatural actions that come with being camera shy. He understands that not everyone stands in front of a camera every day and that the pressure of the wedding can intimidate anyone. Richard Kinsley also recognizes that not all couples share intimacy the same as the next couple does. He strategically follows each couple to capture real interaction between the two, raw emotions and the specific love the couple has between each other.


He chooses backgrounds that suit the couple’s energy and as you look through his portfolio, each background goes perfectly with the couple in the front. Whether they’re simple like standing in front of a beautiful reddish brick wall, or the complex detailing of an old cobblestone bridge, he knows what works best for the personalities of the couples as well. Not into the classical look? Why not sit romantically on a motorcycle or vintage car? Want a regal look? Richard knows the ideal castles! Or for the classic greenery landscapes, he knows of plenty of gardens and parks. The message here? Richard accommodates the very best with every couple that works with him.

Much of the style consists of a mixture of both classic and contemporary with crystal clear details; from trimming within the pillars throughout the historic hallways down to the beautiful crystal beading of the wedding dresses. Richard Kinsley Photography will capture colours making each and every picture stand out. Photos can be taken with a fisheye lens to portray a fantasy-type of panoramic look adding a distinguished touch.

Whether you’re camera-shy, our professional team will comfort your needs and walk-through with you to create the perfect pose, making them appear effortless and social-media worthy.

We understand that couples should be proud and excited to have their family and friends look back at their unforgettable events.

Every little moment will be captured with care, from the Bridal prep, the dress, shoes, makeup and all the little things which are never remembered on the Wedding day, up to the speeches, the first dance as a married couple, to the cake cutting, every moment is just as important as the last.

Hello and welcome to my blog!

I’m a photographer based in Essex, covering the whole of the UK and beyond. Here I will keep you up to date with my recent work, adventures, and news. Enjoy!

Today we had a small outdoor shoot for a young lady called Catherine for her birthday invitations. Myself Catherine and her mum and dad met me at Davy down park near the lakeside shopping center, a park so small you could blink and miss it just driving past. We met up at 10 am and it was freezing cold and very very muddy, but hey everyone was up to get some good shots, and some good shots we got… In Davy down there is a small footbridge over a pond which is quite scenic and with a decent background, set up was a single Nikon sb910 mounted through a white brolly set 45 degrees and later head on to Catherine and about 4 feet away, I decided to use Nikon cls ttl manual for convenience and since it was so cold didn’t want to keep poor Catherine from getting too uncomfortable by which time the wind was picking up and dad had to hold the brolly to stop it falling into the pond! and Catherine who by now was almost frozen before I had even started to set up my gear, a quick bit of manual metering with Mr reliable sekonic , test shot, and we were off. I got some really good shots and if the weather had been a little warmer we could have spent more time getting some decent posed shots, 30 shots and 20 mins later back to base, card into lightroom 4, a quick bit of levels, highlight reduction and sharpening and hey presto what you see is what you get……till next time.
