About Richard Barlow Photography

Dramatic, artful, documentary-style photography. Weddings, portraiture, commercial.

Modern, documentary-style wedding, portrait, and fine art photography.

Richard Barlow is a documentary-style wedding photographer based in Raleigh, North Carolina where he lives with his wife, Samantha, and two little girls, Ella and Madelyn, and son Jack. With a background in Architecture and Fine Art Photography, Richard brings a unique point of view and strong sense of scale and proportion to wedding photography. Starting in 2007, Richard toured and showed his work in juried art festivals across NC, and quickly transitioned to portrait photography. In 2009, Richard began photographing weddings with his first contracted wedding getting the cover shot of Cape Fear Bride Magazine. Richard has since photographed weddings from New England to the Caribbean and everywhere in between.

His calm demeanor and quick sense of humor has served him well in diffusing a stressful bride (and family) on her wedding day. This ease has made for strong and long-lasting relationships with most of his clients and has resulted in most of his clients coming from referrals. Richard loves shooting weddings. He can ‘poof’ a dress, pin boutonnieres, dry dripping bouquets, and keep up with all the movie quotes the groomsmen can dish out.

Even if you weren't my brother, I would have hired you to be our photographer! Everything was beyond perfect, beyond our expectations, and just spot on. I love every single picture with my whole heart. I cannot thank you enough for capturing a day I surely thought I'd never have, but I found my true love after all. It was great to have fun with the pictures, because you know we can't be serious, and not feel posed and stiff. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I love you so much! All potential clients reading this review--HIRE HIM! You will not be disappointed!!

Richard is the best! He came all the way from North Carolina to Austin, Texas to be apart of our big day. Richard is so relaxed and professional, but assertive and lets you know how to stand and what to do (which is great for non-models like us !). I think my favorite part of working with Richard is how excited he gets when he takes a great shot, it really shows that he loves what he does ! The photos are incredible, beautiful, and really capture all of the special and crazy moments of the whole wedding day! I would hire him over and over again ! I highly recommend him for your wedding and beyond!
