Get to know the wedding photographer behind Lonely Hunter and why we love to shoot weddings

My name is Richard Johnston and I have long had a fascination for cameras and their capabilities. It seems that the apple doesn’t fall to far from the tree in my family as I am proud to say that I am indeed a third generation wedding photographer.

The main reason behind why I started Lonely Hunter was because I wanted to share my passion and love of photography with others and it’s for this reason that I find wedding photography to be one of the most rewarding avenues.

I am a perfectionist at heart, I take a lot of pride in what I do and what I present to others and it’s this nature which means that I always try to go above and beyond what’s expected.

When it comes to my shooting style I usually try to encourage natural unforced moments over anything that’s heavily posed. I find it’s this approach that allows your true emotions, personality and the connection that you share with your partner to really shine through making the overall imagery look effortless and timeless.

From the smallest of details to those over the shoulder glances, I understand that a wedding day is more than just the first kiss or the first dance. Instead I see it as a continuous string of moments which unfold throughout an entire day which tell your love story and show the connection you share with your friends and family.

As a wedding photographer I know just how big a role we play on your wedding day and it’s for this reason that I consider it a great privilege to be able to share one of the most memorable days of your life with you.

Our Process

In order to give you a better understanding of the service that we provide our clients during and post wedding day we decided to list our process below.


Using only top of the range professional cameras, lenses and equipment we are there to document your entire wedding day from start to finsh.


Not only are we there to document your wedding day but we are also there to give you any guidance should you require it. This can be anything from teaching you how to put your buttonholes on, to giving you tips that will leave you feeling more relaxed in front of the camera.

Editing & Colour Grading

Following your wedding day we will spend on average another three to five days editing and colour grading hundreds of selected images out of the thousands that were taken on the day.


Once we have finished the editing process and with your permission we will upload a highlight reel from your wedding day to our online portfolio for you to view. We then begin downloading the rest of the images onto a USB as high and low resolution files which will be handed to you, so that you can view them on your computer and store them safely for ever more.

Tangible Products

Should you want to have a physical product by which to remember your wedding day. We will set up an online proofing gallery where you can have the final say on which images are displayed in a fine art book or are printed and framed. Once you have completed the proofing we then either begin organising them into a nice story line for the fine art book or send them off for printing and framing.
