Wedding Photo Pro of the Pros
Ryan has been absolutely amazing during the whole process. I actually reached out to him early on when I decided I wanted to propose to my (now) Wife in December of 2017. Ryan offered to conjure up a plan in a public area where he could get amazing photos and also go unseen until the big moment. He even had a friend capture the moment on a cell phone, which was surprisingly valuable whenever I want to make my bride smile. The photos he took are absolutely incredible.Sent on 06/11/2019
The next step was the wedding. We, naturally, had to make it difficult and do a destination wedding out of country. I reached out to Ryan about doing photos for us, and he was available for our date. We were also curious on getting video work done, and coincidentally, his Wife has that skill set and was able to help us out there as well. Ryan took some absolutely incredible shots that I never thought were possible.
Now, back tracking, Ryan wanted to make sure he sat down with Amanda and I and go over what our expectations were. We met for a drink and a meal and discussed everything we were looking for. We also allowed him some artistic freedom as we preferred not to have our photos to be too staged but rather raw and with emotion. After that discussion and some follow ups, we know he would be well prepared to finish the job in Mexico.
We cannot say enough about the work this guy does. Absolute genius. When you book him, get to know him, you will see he doesn't look at his photography as a job but as a passion, and it comes out clearly in his photos. I learned from his history he has also done other photo work for various industries, so in my opinion he has seen/done pretty much anything and everything you could come up. You will not catch him by surprise. DO NOT miss out on Ryan, he is the best in the business.

Ryan was a spectacular wedding photographer! He traveled up to Door County to shoot our wedding and was professional while also bring relaxed and easy going (very helpful on a already stressful day!) He has a unique style and makes it easy to feel comfortable while being photographed through a long day. We just got our pictures back and LOVED the final product.Sent on 08/04/2019

Ryan was an absolute joy to work with. He's professional, but also very fun! Ryan shot our engagement photos which was perfect for us to get comfortable with being in front of the camera for the big day. Our photos turned out beautiful and we couldn't be happier.Sent on 08/05/2019

You should hire Ryan Brandoff Photography before you even finish reading this, because he might book your date by then! He is very in demand and there are many reasons why. As a videographer, I have worked with over 100 different photographers, and I can honestly say that Ryan Brandoff is by far one of the best of the best. My first impression of him was that he was super friendly, helpful, considerate, patient, and extremely confident without having an ego, which can be common in our profession. What I noticed while working with him, was how in control of everything he was and that he didn't go the easy route to get a good-enough photo; he does what it takes to get the best shot possible while not being obtrusive. He's also very relatable. He makes you feel so comfortable and never does anything awkward to try to get you to smile for photos. I could tell he has been doing this for a very long time. And the fact that he still absolutely loves what he does, really shows through his work. I think my favorite thing about him, though, is just the way he takes care of his clients, as if they were family. The way they interact with him seems like they've known him for years. Most importantly, he's extremely talented. I have seen so much of his work and it is just some of the most beautiful and artistic images I've ever seen. I am without a doubt one of Ryan Brandoff's biggest fans. I personally promise you that you will be thrilled with your photos. Now you just have to hope he is still available!
