Hello, I'm Jess Richards.

I'm a confident, motivated and hardworking individual who is punctual, polite, friendly and reliable. I work in an anti-discriminatory and non-judgmental manner with a passion for the Creative Arts. My creative flair began at Ferndale Community School, studying Art and Design, where I received the Ferndale Arts Society Award for my Grade A artwork. I then attended Bridgend College and studied Photography, where I found my love for capturing pure and timeless memories. I then went on to attended the University of South Wales, where I graduated in 2015 with a Bachelor of Arts in the Creative Industries (Degree) and received the Caroline Stone Award for the Best Documentary. Since graduation, I have been expanding my knowledge within the Arts and have played a vital part in countless magical moments, to which my love for creating beautiful and everlasting memories grew. I have over 7 years experience within photography, design & marketing - with my first paid wedding in 2013. My planning and organisational skills are exceptional and I love nothing more than helping others visualize and create their dreams.

 

It wasn't until February 2019 I decided to also become a Wedding Consultant and Planner and be able to offer such a varied range of services to my clients. But being a Wedding Photographer, Wedding Consultant and Designer is only half of what I do. I also work full-time as a Health Care Support Worker as well as studying for my second Degree in Adult Nursing. The reason I still continue to be as creative as I am is because I love what I do! And that's enough for me.

 

When i'm not working, I usually go on road trips, travel abroad, attend music concerts or binge watch movies and television shows (i'm such a geek at heart!). I'm a big lover of food and an even bigger supporter of Welsh rugby. I also enjoy the NFL American Football and support the Minnesota Vikings.
