Thank you for taking the time to look at my page ! I will work with you as much as it takes to get a package within your budget and to make sure you get only the best photographs of your special day.

I have been a photographer for over 30 years. I started at the news of Delaware County while still in High School, the the Daily Times and finally the Philadelphia Inquirer for 3 years, honing my craft as a true 'photojournalist'. ALong the years I also worked in Theatre shooting actors and models, as well as numerous catalog/brochure work for Wanamakers, companies and concert tours.

Combine all of these elements and you get a unique style of art and photography.

I prefer to cover the entire days events so that the pictures tell the story of the day. A combination of posed and candids assures you and your friends and family will look natural and happy.

I dont like to offer "just packages" because I believe every wedding is unique and different . It may be a renewal service, or 2nd marriage...something not typically large , and therefore a smaller price would be appropriate. Because of that I dont simply quote a number...you;re more than that to me.
I prefer to meet face to face, or at least emails and phoneconversations to gather information first...then give you a price that fits your budget and yet meets your expectations.

Please look through my work and feel free to email or call me ANYtime...I am always available to speak to you ! Read less

I am not one to write reviews, but I feel obligated to stress to tri-state area brides that if you don't book Richard Barnes Photography for your wedding you are truly missing out. I can say with confidence that the genuine nature and high quality service found with Richard Barnes Photography is unmatched. With Richard Barnes Photography your experience will be a personal one. I expressed to him my love for photography and my tendency to cherish lives’ memories through photos, and I was met with an enthusiastic response by a photographer that has made a career out of his passion for capturing the essence of moments in the lives of others with his camera. My husband and I were impressed with every interaction we had with Richard; he is professional, responsive, and truly values the opinions and time of his clients. Richard worked with us to create a photo package that included everything we wanted, but was also affordable. He is creative; our Longwood Garden's engagement shoot photos appeared natural and really brought out our personality as a couple. Family and friends are still raving about these photos. Richard is experienced. You don't have have to feel obligated to come up with a huge list of "must have shots" on your wedding day to get the images you want. He was on our venue's preferred vendor list and we were relieved that he had shot at both our ceremony and reception location many times. He was in the right place at the right time our entire wedding day and although our posed shots turned out perfectly we were most impressed with our candid shots. Richard goes above and beyond. We received a sampling of our photos hours after the wedding because Richard knew we would want to share them with family before leaving town. I simply do not have enough positive things to say about Richard Barnes Photography. With the stresses you are bound to experience pre-wedding, book Richard and you will not have to worry another second about your wedding photography.

We met with Richard a few times to discuss our plan for the day and the types of photos we were looking for. He mentioned several times that what we were asking for was perfectly reasonable and would only require some editting with a filter. The day of the wedding, there was hardly any direction given from him. We have only a handful of good photos with the bridal party because no one knew where to look, or stand, or when to smile. And while getting ready with my bridesmaids, he was taking photos when I didn't realize it. 3/4 of the photos I wasn't smiling for. Additionally, despite signing a contract that promised "edited, print ready photos", we were presented with 3000 raw images. Several of them had his reflection in the mirrors, or his assistant in the background, or the lens of his assistant right in the shot. After selecting ~80 to be procesed, we were told by him that the 3000 photos we had been presented with WERE processed/edited, and that any additional editing would cost extra. I may not be a "professional" photographer, but I know the difference between photos that have been processed and photos that came straight off of the camera. These photos had come straight off of the camera. And no professional photographer in their right mind would present their client with every single photo they had taken. It's way too overwhelming. I couldn't even begin to try and edit these photos myself since I don't have great photo processing skills. And I shouldn't have to! My jusband and I were so frustrated by the experience and the service, that we hired another photographer to take photos of us in our wedding clothes at the reception site at a later date. His work was beautiful and we've gone back to him multiple times for other sessions. Hiring Richard was by far the worst mistake I made for my wedding day. I should be able to look back at these photos for the rest of my life and smile, but instead I'm frustrated whenever I look at them. I never made an album.
