Rich Howman, is a multi-award-winning photographer. He has been attending weddings for almost 10 years and is joined by one of his assistant photographers on all shoots. As a graduate from the prestigious Winchester School of Art with a degree in Fine Art, with plenty of experience shooting weddings, Rich has an extraordinary eye for beauty and composition: this, plus an instant easy rapport with people, results in wonderfully evocative images.

Unobtrusively, Rich captures the energy of the day, from preparations in the morning right through to the more relaxed evening entertainment, including the emotion of the speeches and those quiet, intimate moments between the newlywed couple. After the wedding, each image is professionally retouched by hand, a task Rich does himself.

The Packages

Rich Howman understands that 'packages' simply don't fit most couples' wants or needs, so he will offer quotes tailored to specific requirements. Email or call Rich for details.

Each quote covers two photographers, professional image-finishing, an online gallery and your final photos delivered on a beautiful custom-boxed USB drive. Engagement photoshoots, wedding albums, signing boards and thankyou cards are also available.

The Photographs

Rich adopts a quintessentially natural approach to his photography in an unobtrusive and documentary/reportage style, allowing you and your guests the freedom to enjoy your day as you should while he captures the fun, emotion and magic of the moment.

There are often a few group photographs needed, but Rich approaches these with the surroundings in mind, in an 'informal-formal' way, if you like. You'll look back on your wedding day with the utmost fondness as you turn the pages of your souvenir album.

    The USB with the photos came through today. The photos are simply beautiful and countless of our friends have said the same. The photos speak for themselves, they are simply beautiful and to try and dissect them anymore would be doing them a disservice. What you can’t tell from the photos however is quite how well Rich and his co-photographer will blend into your wedding. Élan Images provides a perfect mixture of professionalism, discretion and charisma. That coupled with a rare talent for reading people and working out what make them tick means that having them around will if anything enhance your day.

  • Becca & Andrew

    What can we say to the star of our show!? We cannot ever thank you enough for all of your utterly outstanding work and your laughter and support leading up to and during our wedding day. We could (hands-down) not have found a more talented photographer in all of the lands who truly ‘got’ us, better than we knew! (we are both very camera shy and look what you did!) We are so glad we found you – from the one image we saw of yours, we knew there and then you were the one – but even better, we didn’t know we would also meet an amazing friend from that. You are truly an artist. Thank you for each and every masterpiece!

  • Sharon & Mark

    Thank you so much for the amazing job you did on the “big day” and also for the stunning photographs… we are absolutely thrilled with the results. You managed to tell the story of the day and capture some really beautiful, intimate and funny moments (especially when the ceilidh was in full swing!). Your professionalism and sense of humour made all our guests feel at ease and we will always have a lasting image of you as the ‘ninja dressed in black with your double holstered cameras at the ready!

    If you’re looking for a photographer with talent, passion and bags of enthusiasm, then we can’t recommend Richard enough.

  • Helen & Duncan

    Rich is amazing. We are so so so happy that we chose him to photograph our wedding. We think he is an example of someone perfectly suited to his job. Not only is he an amazing photographer (which he is!), his personality and energy also mean he is just such a brilliant person to have around you on your wedding day. We would have happily had him and Gabi (his second shooter) there without their cameras! They brought so much great energy and positivity and respect, and put everyone from toddlers, to teenagers, to grandparents at their ease brilliantly, and then were the best fun ever on the dancefloor! No idea how they have enough energy and joy to keep that up all day long, but I guess that’s what happens when you’re doing the right job!

    Our collection of photos is incredible. The venue was quite challenging, with lots of small tight spaces, and low light conditions, but the photos he’s produced are beyond what we’d hoped for. We’ve had so many people say they’re the best wedding photos they’ve ever seen. The atmosphere of the day is captured perfectly, along with so many small moments that we missed throughout the day. We wish we could get married again, and do it all over! We couldn’t recommend him more highly!

  • Mrs Walters

  • Natalie and Callum

    We recently got married in Seville, Spain and we were very apprehensive about finding a photographer who would travel to our desired destination. I found Rich through a recent photograph he had taken at the 'Haci' and i instantly fell in love with it!
    We can not thank Rich and Claire for the phenomenal job they both did. The process was easy and stress free (every brides dream) and from the moment we met them we were put at ease instantly. The way both Rich and Claire captured the wedding photographs were on another level and everyone who has seen the photographs couldn't have praised them enough.
    If you are looking for a top photographer for your special day- Richard is the one! Thankyou so much, the photographs speak for themselves and we will treasure them forever.
