Who are you and why should we trust you to take our wedding photos?
My name is Renard Richie. I was born in Jakarta, Indonesia and lived there for 11 years (Obama is my childhoods friend…j/k :)). You should trust me because photography is my passion. I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it for as long as I can remember. I am a perfectionist and all I care about is to take the best photos I could exposure or composition wise. I will never stop learning and improving myself with all the latest techniques that the world of photography has to offer.

Are you willing to travel?
Absolutely anywhere! Extra points for bringing me to Bermuda 🙂
What editing software do you use?
How many photos would we get?
I typically deliver 600-800 post-processed images on a crafty designed wooden USB drive stored inside a really pretty wooden box. I’ll also provide an online gallery, where you can download and order prints from professional photo labs for an extra cost.
What are our rights to the photos given to us?
You will receive personal rights to distribute and print your photos anytime you want.
What is the process to book you?
We’d set up an initial meeting, and if we are a perfect match and you would love me to document your wedding, I have a 40% non-refundable deposit of the total cost of the package that you choose, along with a contract that you need to sign. The date is then considered booked.
Can my ___ take photos during my wedding?
Sure, as long as he/she respects that I am there to document your day as best as I could and try to not get in my shots.
Do you have insurance?
Yes, Commercial Liability Insurance, Equipment insurance and Indemnity insurance.
Do you do this for a living?
I split my time between my day job as an Interactive Web Designer for a creative agency and photography. Rest assured that I will certainly make time for your special day.
What is your game-plan on a typical wedding day?
I love what I do. Shooting a wedding makes me happy. I start by getting up early, drinking coffee and listening to love songs (I kid you not!). I believe that the subject you are shooting directly reflects the emotions and feelings that you’re projecting. If you are nervous or not in the right mood, you wouldn’t be able to produce stunning photos. I prepare all of my gear the night before, fully charged, including the backup camera.
Last but not least, I want to shout out to my preferred vendors. I love working with them
and would absolutely recommend them to anyone!
