Nice things people have said about me and my work.

I put one hundred percent into every single image I create. My number one priority being your experience. Not only should you look at your final images and feel completely stoked, but I also want you to reflect back on the day and think “holy sh*t, that was fun!”

Rich is an amazing photographer and such a laid-back dude. We had him do our pre-wedding shoot as well as the wedding itself. It was stress-free, fun, shared many laughs along the way and Rich went above and beyond to get us what we wanted. We received all our photos within 3 weeks and they look absolutely out of this world.

Rich is very experienced, knowledgable and creative in his approach. We had the best time and cannot speak highly enough of him. He’s the guy!

Rich did our wedding photography and it was amazing! He made my now husband feel so comfortable in front of the camera which I didn’t think was possible. We had the best time, laughs and jokes flying. It really made our day special and the photos are just absolutely stunning!!! Everyone raves about what a fabulous wedding we had when they see our photos.

I honestly can not say enough great things about Rich Bayley! He was FANTASTIC to work with throughout the wedding process. He was very communicative prior to the wedding and made it exceptionally easy to coordinate everything from overseas. He did the most incredible job capturing every moment of the day. The photos he took during our helicopter trip to Coromandel Peak were like nothing I had ever seen. All of our friends say they are the most beautiful wedding photos they’ve seen and that they belong in a magazine! I literally gasped when I saw them – they are exceptional.

Rich is so incredibly talented, his photos really do speak for themselves. We didn’t meet Rich in person until the morning of our wedding and he was phenomenal. He was so relaxed, it just put me at ease. We had so much fun, he had us laughing all day, it was just incredible. Rich also got our photos to us in record time, I still can’t believe it. We have had so many compliments on our photos and they really do capture our magical day.

Rich perfectly captured the beautiful scenery and the fun on our wedding day. The photos were nothing short of spectacular and we’ve received so many compliments on them! Rich is a great guy and made us feel at ease while our photos were being taken. He gently guided us to get the best photos but made it a really fun experience and it’s something we look back on fondly. We are so grateful that we had Rich as our photographer!

We booked Rich for our wedding in January this year & we are so happy we did! Rich did an absolutely amazing job & our photos are more beautiful than we could have imagined! Rich captured all the special moments & we love the final editing, the photos are so creative.

Rich provided us with great advice & always responded to our emails promptly & so professionally. Rich arranged & booked the helicopter for us which was great as it was one less thing to organise. Our friends & family loved having Rich around on the day, he was a lot of fun!
