This week, we speak to the lovely husband and wife duo Bernie & Bindi, at Bernard Richardson Wedding Photography. Bernie and Bindi provide us with exclusive insight into their photography business, and share with us what they love most about their job.
How long has ‘Bernard Richardson Photography’ been established and what do you do?
Thanks for the opportunity to talk to you and your readers. Bernard Richardson Photography (BRP) was formed years ago as a successful Commercial Photography business. Last year we made a decision to focus on our love for wedding photography. Since then we have become very busy shooting all different aspects of weddings such as proposals, engagements and wedding celebrations.
We are able to offer our couples some very unique benefits, one of which is that we are a husband and wife photography team. We offer a full range of services including talented videographers, re-touchers and album designers.
What do you love most about your work?
There is lots to love! There has been a big increase in the number of proposals recently. I love the intimate nature of these shoots but of course my favorite is the weddings. Regardless of the event, what I love is being to capture a little bit of magic between two people. Unique moments of love, joy and laughter.
What is it like working together and what advice can you offer to other husband and wife business partners?
Ha ! Lots of jokes spring to mind but honestly it’s the best thing ever. We compliment each other perfectly. Bindi and I have very different styles but one vision with our work. The best thing is we always have a great laugh together, I think this is the key!
Absolutely! We have proposals, engagements and weddings booked and we couldn’t be happier.
Do you have a favorite ceremony and/or reception location to shoot at in the UAE?
We are really lucky to have some stunning 5 star venues in the UAE. We love to introduce a little glamour into our wedding images and these venues provide the perfect backdrop. Some of our personal favorites are The Waldorf Astoria and The Anantara on the Palm.
Describe your style and approach to photography?
Our style of wedding photography could be described as Contemporary. What this means is we are less formal in our approach and more concerned with letting couples express their personality. This means our work always contains elements of photojournalism, portraiture and fashion. We are drawn to producing bright, colorful, clean images that are full of emotion. Our approach is relaxed and full of humor !
How can our readers (Brides & Grooms) benefit from your services?
We are pleased to offer Bride Club ME readers an exclusive ten percent discount off our packages. Just quote “Bride Club ME” when enquiring.
If you could give one piece of advice to brides to-be, what would it be?
I would love to offer two gems please ! Firstly If photography is important to you as a couple, then make sure you set a realistic budget. Secondly, take time to meet your photographer and ensure you like them! This is one key to getting really relaxed looking images.
Lastly, why did you choose to list with www.brideclubme.com?
Because Rio and Bride Club ME are an invaluable resource to Brides and Grooms in the UAE!
