Making the uncomfortable...comfortable.

The focus of our work is all about finding the best in people and relationships and making everyone comfortable in front of a camera. The best way to describe how we work is straight from the mouths of our clients. "Holly is magic. She is bubbly and so funny. Her sense of humor keeps things that might otherwise be stressful lighthearted and fun. She's also totally on top of things. She'll make sure your hair is right and that you look gorgeous in every shot. Ryan is quieter, which is really great for the genuinely intimate shots. You don't feel like he's breathing down your neck and you can really be yourself and feel the emotion without feeling embarrassed. He also has a really dry sense of humor, and made both of us chuckle a lot. They make a wonderful team!

    Brilliant Artists!

    Ryan and Holly are truly brilliant and gifted artists. They are also wonder human beings. Planning a wedding is hard as it is, adding the pandemic factor in 2020 made things harder in so many ways. They accomodated ALL our changes and were so understanding of our difficulties. It means so much to my wife and I to work with a business who truly care about their clients over their own bottom-line in such a tough season. Their ability to see epic shots and make the mundane look outstanding is simply mind-blowing! We just recently received our full set of wedding pictures (ahead of schedule). They have a wonderful way of capturing emotion and depth of the ENTIRE event. As awkward of a photo-model I am, they both have such a great ability to lighten the mood that made me feel at ease throughout the wedding and focus on the celebration (which they captured incredibly well). They're also so well organized, there's no guess work or chaos on the day of the event. I can't express how happy my wife and I are that we made the best decision possible going with GAUPERphoto and we can't recommend Holly & Ryan enough!

    The best!

    We could not be more happy with our choice of wedding photographer!! Ryan and Holly are SUPER friendly - they offered to video chat with us before we signed any contract so we could get to know their personalities and make sure it was a good fit. From the start they were super informative, helpful and kind. They helped us construct a timeline for our wedding and even provided a vendor recommendation list. Ryan was our photographer for our wedding day and he was INCREDIBLE!!! He was SO calm and laid back which is honestly the IDEAL personality to have following you around all day long on your wedding day. He made us feel so comfortable - giving us direction but also letting us still be ourselves. It was truly a perfect fit! He also showed us some previews on the camera as the day went on which were STUNNING!!! Our friends and family at the wedding raved about him as well. If you are debating hiring GAUPERphoto.. DO IT!

    Look no further!

    Let's just start by saying, there aren't enough stars in the galaxy to give Holly and Ryan! I had a very hard time deciding on a photographer because that is one of the most important parts of a wedding for me. It took me a very long time and I went through many photographer options. Let me tell you, I made the right decision and would make it again 100 times over.

    From the moment we met them, it was like they have been friends for a lifetime. They are both so wonderful and make you feel so comfortable when being photographed. Unfortunately our big wedding was scheduled to be last year in the middle of the pandemic and between eloping and having to reschedule our big day, they were nothing but super helpful and understanding. They were even gracious enough to set up one of their associate shooters to shoot our elopement in Detroit and took that hour out of our package so that we didn't have to pay extra.

    They drove several hours just to shoot our wedding and have gone over and above since day 1. From the meetings, to discussing our day of schedule, they've been thorough and on point with every detail. At the end of the wedding night, I heard nothing but compliments from our guests saying how wonderful they both were and how efficient they were. Holly made sure my husband and I constantly looked our best and paid close attention to the small details. They are true artists.

    Ryan and Holly both were so much fun, made our guests laugh and had so many super fun ideas. I cannot thank them enough for making our day more special than I could have imagined. After seeing some of the photos they showed us on the camera, we cannot WAIT to see all of them! If you want photographers that will make your wedding day absolute perfection, hire GAUPERphoto. It will be the best decision you've ever made as a couple! We are so blessed and so fortunate to have found them. You guys are THE BEST!
