Wedding Photographer Reviews

We were immediately impressed with Rick’s personality, his obvious passion for his work and his intimate knowledge of our wedding venue (Mottram Hall).

From the outset we were confident that Rick would do an exceptional job at our wedding and the evidence of his previous work demonstrates his skill and love of photography. Rick invited us to view albums that he has previously produced and discussed our options in a friendly and relaxed manner. We were given time to select an appropriate option before committing to anything and we were always confident that if our requirements changed for any reason, Rick would do his very best to accommodate them.

As someone who does not particularly like having his photograph taken, I have to say that Rick’s approach is excellent. We took up the option of an ‘Engagement Photo Shoot’ a few weeks prior to the wedding so that we were aware of what Rick wanted from us on the day, and so that we could make sure that we were relaxed and fully prepared. We worked with Rick to determine which photographs we liked and he took this information forward to the wedding day to ensure that the photographs exactly met with our requirements.

On the day of the wedding, Rick was exceptional and he arrived suitably early so that he could be fully set up and ready to capture the key moments of the day. The guests at the wedding commented on how professional Rick was and we were highly impressed with his ability to ‘blend into the background’ and capture his shots without intruding.
Rick stayed later than we had agreed as he knew that some of the best shots could be taken at night. This is something that he didn’t have to do and it must be said, he went above and beyond to get some of the best pictures in the album after the sun had set.

Overall, we cannot recommend Rick Dell highly enough. From our initial meeting, we had every confidence that the end result would be outstanding. Having received our wedding album and after showing it to friends and family, we must say that our expectations were exceeded on all counts. The album itself is unlike any that I have ever seen and the quality of the photographs is simply amazing.

If you are looking for an exceptional wedding photographer then Rick is definitely your man. You will not be disappointed with the results that he produces and his commitment to quality cannot be questioned.

Thanks for your great work!

We met Rick 2 years before our wedding at the Event City wedding fair; he was the first photographer that we met here and from then on we didn’t bother trying to find another one; he blew us away. Throughout planning our wedding, I was looking for suppliers that I could chat to, that were friendly, and that I had a connection with – Rick was so well suited to us and his products and style matched what we were looking for perfectly. Throughout the whole process; from meeting him, to our engagement shoot, to the planning and the actual wedding, Rick was always so professional.

I can’t describe how elated we were when we went to view our wedding photos last night; Rick captured the day absolutely perfectly and we were blown away – I don’t know how we’ll choose the ones for the album!

Another thing to note is that Rick’s products are second to none, he has lots of fresh, new ideas and isn’t a photographer that is stuck or set in his ways; he is always up for trying something new. The quality of his work speaks volumes.

If for any reason you are debating between two photographers or you are stuck in a field of wedding planning; go to visit Rick and your decision will be made there and then.

Thank you so much Rick for capturing our day so perfectly; these photos are the memories that will stay with us always. Not only did we book a new photographer, we met a new friend and it was a pleasure to share our day with you. xx

What can we say about you. If there was a 6* option we would pick it. You went above and beyond to help us get the shots we wanted as well as taking the beautiful natural shots of all our surroundings.

You are the nicest, most genuine guy we have ever had the pleasure of working with, and we will be highly recommending you to everyone we know, and be using you again in the future for any other shoots that we may want/need.

You made us feel at ease since we had our first meeting with you and we knew we were picking the right photographer as soon as we saw your work at mere court wedding fayre.

The pictures from our engagement shoot were so unique and beautiful. We had so many comments from people telling us how nice they were.

You’ve helped make our day perfect, captured all our memories that we can look back on forever and for that we are forever grateful.

Thank you Rick!

Rick did our wedding photos at the Deanwater hotel and after recently getting out wedding album from Rick… Wow this guy is good the pictures look amazing. Would recommend Rick to anyone wanting amazing pictures.

Rick did the photos for our wedding in July 2016 and we were very impressed by the results.

We met Rick at a Wedding fayre and we arranged an appointment with Rick and was even more impressed by some of the work in display in his home studio. He instantly made us feel comfortable and relaxed – something some of the other photographers we had spoken to didn’t do!

Throughout the run up to our wedding, we had a number of meetings to discuss ideas and thoughts for what photos we would want. As part of our package we had an engagement shoot which really helped in getting to know Rick better and feeling comfortable with him so we could find out what shots we wanted, ones that he liked to do and to enable us to relax on the big day.

When it came to the day, Rick had clearly done his homework on the church and our venue as he already knew where to take the best shots.

When we picked up our wedding album we were amazed! The results were fantastic! He captured the day brilliantly and the way he arranged the album itself was really clever.

Thanks so much Rick!

Hi Rick

We had Rick for our photographer after much searching through the internet and also wedding magazines. On meeting him and seeing how knowledgeable he was and the quality of the work he produced, our minds were made up.

We were not disappointed. Not only was he friendly, funny and so good at putting everybody at ease (it was like he wasn’t even in the room with us at times), the pictures we have received from him are simply fantastic. He has captured everything from pure emotion to fun-filled poses and smoke effects and even wonderful sparkler-filled night images. To say we were impressed is putting it lightly. He made our wedding day, because now we get to re-live it every time we look at the pictures. So, thank you Rick!

Fantastic work on Saturday Rick, lots of the guests said how good you were at getting the shots without interrupting them. You just blended into the background!

The pictures that you showed us on the night looked brilliant! I bet the final album will be even better!

You are highly recommended to anyone who needs a wedding photographer!

Thank you!

You were the first Photographer we seen and when we saw your albums on an open day we were absolutely sold and knew we wanted you as our photographer for our wedding.

From the first meeting we had 100% confidence from then that we were in good hands as you were organised and could tell you had done this before which is exactly what every bride and groom rely on for their big day.

You structured our whole day perfectly and captured every single special moment we want to keep forever. All our guests said how amazing you were and how comfortable you made our close family and friends feel.

I cannot say how happy we are with our album. It’s 100* rating in our eyes and have loved showing it off to everyone. The finish and presentation is spectacular.

We cannot thank you enough and we would highly recommend you any day and would not hesitate contacting you for other occasions.

Thanks so much Rick, you did a fabulous job!

I would like to thank Rick for all of the beautiful pictures and memories that he captured of our wedding. We had the most fantastic day and now we have the incredible memories.  From the moment that we met Rick at a wedding show we knew that we wanted to work with him.  He was kind friendly and willing to listen to what we wanted, whilst advising us how to achieve the best results.  We had a pre-wedding photo shoot which enabled us to get a feel of how Rick worked and allowed us to get used to the camera, which was an enjoyable experience.  When it came to our special day we hardly noticed Rick as he was just in the background capturing fantastic natural pictures of the day.  When we had the pre-organised set photographs he was professional, organised and in control of the situation.  When we saw our photo album for the first time we were speechless, we knew the pictures Rick had taken were amazing but the way the album was executed just took our breath away and we couldn’t have asked for more.

Thank you so much for everything and we would highly recommend Rick to anyone.

Rick, thank you so so much for the fantastic compilation of photographs that you captured for us at our wedding celebration at the Cottons Hotel and Spa on Saturday 13th September. We had a fun time working with you to capture the perfect shots within and around the grounds of the hotel throughout the afternoon and into the evening. You worked extremely hard, a true professional through and through. It has been difficult selecting our favourite 90 for our wedding album because there are so,many beautiful photographs. Thank you once again for that extra special touch. We would have no hesitatation in recommending, you, your talent and professionalism.
All the very best, Kind regards  x

For anyone wanting a stress free, highly professional wedding photographer Rick is your man. We can’t speak highly enough of him. From the minute we sat in his office to the picking up of our album he’s made everything so easy. We now have a beautiful wedding album filled with fantastic memories of our day, natural and relaxed pictures. He even goes along with the idea of a bride standing on a tractor for a pic!! A colleague of mine commented that his Italian Storybook is ‘the most beautiful album’ she’d ever seen. Thank you Rick for capturing it all for us! The Kemps x

We would highly recommend Rick for wedding photography. He is very professional and produces very high quality images. He really captures the moment.
Rick is very efficient and after our engagement shoot and wedding, we received our images very quickly.
We’d recommend going for an engagement shoot with Rick. It’s a good opportunity to get to know Rick and he to get to know you too. Rick soon puts you at ease in front of the camera and is very amenable to any requests.
Thanks for everything Rick!
