Wedding and portrait photography. In all m,y work I am looking to present people in a way that is unique to them. This means not just artistic and technical skill but also being people centred, listen to them and getting them to be themselves in front of the lens.
Richard photographed our wedding in April and he didn’t miss a moment! We received over 1000 high quality images including portraits and casual shots. Multiple guests commented on how pleasant, professional and hardworking he was. Richard worked tirelessly editing and perfecting the photographs for our album and we couldn’t be happier with his work. I highly recommend Richard Linnett as a photographer, he’s a pleasure to work with and very reasonably priced, we are even considering another photoshoot with our dogs! More...
Richard has an outstanding personality! He did incredible working together with our videographer to capture our day perfectly. He took an uncountable number of photos! Richard is very patient, kind and funny. He made us laugh and feel comfortable immediately ; even after meeting the first time on our wedding day. If you decide to book Richard as your photographer, be sure to book his wife Oona as well. She is an unbelievably talented and graceful harpist! More...
I asked Richard to shoot some portraits of me for a new business website. To be honest I wasn't entirely relishing the prospect of having a camera pointed at me for an hour, but Richard made the whole shoot relaxed, friendly and enjoyable and time flew. His communication before, during and after the shoot was excellent and I'm delighted with the final results. I would happily use his highly professional services again and can wholeheartedly recommend. More...
Richard is an excellent photographer, he really captured our weeding day brilliantly and produced stunning photographs, his attention to detail is superb, such a nice man as well, we had so many compliments about his work ethic on the day. highly recommend!
Had a lovely wedding day with Richard photographing Adam and I, looking forward to seeing the final result! Him and his wife Oona (on harp) were both there and it was very relaxed they knew exactly what we wanted
I wanted a special 50th birthday present for my husband who adores our family pet Sam the Dalmation.I needed photos that were natural and ones that captured Sams individual spirit.
Richard achieved this and so much more on our usual park walk.
My husband Ant was so pleased and the massive frame we have of the photos sits perfectly on his office wall! More...

Wow. Brilliant guy. Made us both feel totally relaxed at his studio. Had a laugh too. Can't wait for him to do our wedding photos later this year. Might even sneak another cheeky photo shoot in at Oulton Park. Fabulous experience. More...

Richard's photographs were amazing for our company's opening event! He got every shot that we wanted and would highly recommend him! Thank you
Great service fast professional booking easy to deal with and most of all fantastic photos highly recommend
Richard was the photographer at our Wedding at the Chester Grosvenor Hotel. Before the wedding, he arranged a complimentary "Engagement shoot" at his studio.
He has skill, experience and a lot of patience. At our wedding he not only organised our guests for the formal photographs, but took informal shots which captured the flavour and atmosphere of the day. He was particularly patient with the young children - not watch the birdie, but watch his toy monkey which brought lots of smiles!
He took great care to provide us with a nicely presented DVD of all of the photographs as a memento of the day, together with a beautiful album containing our chosen favourite images.
We would recommend him to anyone.

There are wedding photographers and there is Richard Linnett.
We came across Richard whilst looking for a photographer for our wedding at Rookery Hall in July 2015. After looking through Richard’s online gallery and reading some of the reviews we knew that he would be the right man for the job.
After deciding which one of Richard’s excellent wedding packages to go for, we were invited to an engagement photoshoot at his studio in Chester. Richard is a great guy, and has a real passion for what he does. The engagement shoot was a real laugh, and Richard made us feel very welcome and at ease instantly. The photos which came out from the engagement shoot were stunning.
On the wedding day Richard turned up nice and early and caught the arrival of all of the guests. Along with the wedding co-ordinator Richard was fantastic at getting everyone organised for the photos. The photos which came out from the wedding are first class, and we are so happy with them.
Along with a well presented DVD containing all of the photos, Richard produced a wedding album. The wedding album is beautiful. Richard organised the photos to get everything in we wanted without making it look to crammed. Kirsty and myself are very pleased with the outcome.
Finally we would like to mention Oona, Richard’s wife. Kirsty wanted a harpist for the wedding, and it just so happened that Oona is a harpist. Oona did a fantastic job and it was a pleasure to work with Oona, and to have her play at our wedding.
From the bottom of our hearts we would like to thank Richard for his professionalism and the excellent photographs he has produced. Also we extend the same thanks to Oona. You both were brilliant.
Kirsty and myself would highly recommend Richard Linnett as a wedding photographer, and Oona as a harpist. More...
He's not just for weddings! He cleaned up and enlarged an old 1950's family photograph. It is so much clearer and better than the original. The copies will make fab presents for my family. He also did some marvellous character shots of my dog. I would not use anyone else! More...
Richard did an absolutely fantastic job with our engagement and wedding photos. We had not met him prior to visiting Chester but he was a pleasure to spend time with and literally made our experience one we will never forget. He was good enough to take us around the city for wedding shots, picking lovely locations and made us feel really relaxed with no time pressure. I would highly recommend him. More...

Richard was the photographer for our Wedding at the beginning of this month and we couldn't have found anyone better! When we first booked we received a complimentary Engagement Shoot which we were both very glad about as we needed MUCH practice taking pictures before the wedding! He made us feel very comfortable and also gave us some tips for our Wedding Day photos. The pictures taken were perfect! On the big day he arrived at the venue early and took the time to walk around the venue and take some pictures before taking the Bridal Preparations photos. Richard provided a personal and professional service and was well liked by everyone at our wedding. He also made the experience very fun! As well as taking formal pictures, he also took informal ones which definitely captured the atmosphere of the day. He was very creative and took pride in his work. The pictures are absolutely amazing! We couldn't be happier! I would also like to mention Richard's wife, Oona. Oona was our harpist for the wedding and she did an absolute fantastic job! She was very kind and played the harp beautifully. Both highly recommended by myself and my husband. Thank you again. More...

Richard was an absoloute delight to have as our photographer! Professional, patient, creative and made me and my husband feel very comfortable. Our guests even commented on how great he was and I would highly recommend him and will be using him again for future photography! Thank you Richard! More...
We have used Richard for a family portrait session and for my daughter's christening. He knows just how to work with children to get the best results even when they are less than cooperative! He captured a wonderful set of images of Lydia's special day covering just about every moment from every angle. Cannot recommend highly enough! More...
Richard is a friendly man who puts you at your ease even if you hate being photographed like I do! I was so impressed, I took my dog to be photographed at a later date. Richard really listens to what type of photographs you would like and I was pleased with all of them. Will definitely use him again. More...

Absolutely amazing and stunning pictures. Could not have hoped for a better experience. Would not recommend anyone else for any kind of occasion where a photographer would make the day perfect
I was looking for a professional photographer to take photographs of an advisory board and the CEO of an engineering consulting company. I got in contact with Richard Linnett.From then on, everything went very professionally. Conversation was straight forward, appointment took place on time and the photographs are a dream - Richard is a star!I appreciate your time and efforts.Kind regards,Constantin More...
Richard was very easy to work with and very happy to be flexible before the shoot, during the shoot, and very happy to help with images after our shoot too. We will be using him again
I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience with Richard and will most certainly look in his direction again for future shoots. I'm never normally one who feels at ease "posing" for photo's for a prolonged period of time, but Richard's direction and both friendly and professional personality eased me right in to the whole thing; he made it comfortable and enjoyable throughout and the time flew by!
