You know that you have found your wedding photographer when the photographer considers seeing the smile on the faces of his subjects as his main reward--and it is that same refreshing outlook that endears Richard Buan Photography to his clients.
Richard Buan’s passion for photography prowess started way back when he was in high school. He shares that he used to play with his father’s manual camera until he eventually got the hang of taking photos with it. Friends and relatives took notice of his skills, which Richard continued to hone. Eventually, he ventured in the photography business in 2004, and the company gathered a team of photographers to better cover weddings.
The team’s expertise is shooting wedding portraits of the couple and their guests. Their style is mainly comprised of capturing relaxed candid shots that exude a natural feel on the photographs. Richard says, "I capture the story of a wedding day as it unfolds from a guest’s perspective. Artistic, candid and relaxed are the best words to describe my style. They’re heartfelt, real, and undirected images that last for a lifetime."
According to Richard, his sense of fulfillment stems from the joy he gives to the couple with every photograph he produces. He shares, "It's the fulfillment and joy that I feel when I see my clients happy and emotional when I present to them images and memories of their wedding day. I also believe that people would remember me for a long time as I captured the memories of their most special day."
In preparation for a wedding, Richard makes sure that he speaks with the couple first to get insights on their personalities. He'd also ask for suggestions about themes and concepts so he could better execute and deliver the couple’s requests.
To keep his style and skillset updated, he attends seminars and non-wedding photo shoots. These activities reward him with new perspectives, and let him practice new techniques. By constantly working on his craft, he envisions a bright future for his company. “I’d like our team to be recognized as one of the top wedding suppliers who specialize in wedding photography,” he says. Truly, this team of photographers is one to watch in the wedding industry.
