The Richards

We're a husband & wife wedding photo & film team based in Johannesburg, South Africa.

We love our local church, time spent in nature, chasing light, good food, and good coffee. We love marriage, love, and people.

Although we travel a lot for work, at our core we are absolute home bodies who relish in soaking up late afternoon light with our dog Daisy and cat Logan in our cosy home which is filled with many many house plants (Max always thinks there's room for more though).

We are easy-going people that seek deeper experiences and meaningful connections in life. We're here to serve people with excellence and love them with the overflow of God's love in us, and if we can do that well, then we've accomplished our highest goal in this business.

we love Jesus and we want to let that shape our lives and our business

You'll see elements of our faith even incorporated into our logo. The design inspiration coming from Matthew 5:14 - 16:

14 “You are the light of [Christ to] the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven."

God is our biggest “why” and our biggest motivator. In 2018 we met Jesus for the first time and our lives have never been the same. Since then, as a part of the church we’ve had the privilege of meeting and encountering so many people from so many different walks of life, and being moved with God’s love for all of them. He’s constantly breaking down barriers and teaching us to see people how He sees them. We really believe that our passion for human connection, relationships, intimacy and sacred moments are all because He showed us His heart for those things first. Our desire is to walk through life seeing through His eyes, and hopefully documenting that way too.

How does this shape our business and affect you as a client? It means that whether you're Christian or not, our promise to you is this:

- We'll serve you with excellence

- We'll strive to bring peace & groundedness into every part of your day

- We will love you and celebrate you with joy

- We will honour this moment in your lives as it deserves
