    In love with our engagement photos.

    Ryan drove all the way to Sebastopol to do our engagement photos at our home and it was the best decision we could have made. Not only did Ryan manage to make sure the couples shoot thing was not awkward but it was incredibly comfortable and so much fun! We couldn’t be happier with our photos and our only concern now is trying to choose favorites among the literal hundred that we’re in love with!! We just keep remarking on how many of them really “feels like us!” We would choose Ryan a hundred times over!

    Flawless wedding photos

    My husband and I had a specific style we were looking for, and found several in the Carmel area who fit our vision. While they were all nice and talented, Ryan just stood out to us for a number of reasons. Right away he was genuinely friendly, asking us about ourselves, our wedding and sharing a bit about his life.

    We noticed his range of photography includes very intimate and personal moments, which signaled to us his ability to disarm his subjects and also make them feel very comfortable. This was important to us as my husband and I don’t like to be in the spotlight.

    Our wedding was the same day as the Big Sur Marathon, which threw a wrench in the arrival of our wedding party and vendors. Ryan went out of his way to get to the area before the road closed, hours before we were scheduled to begin. He even arrived at the bridal changing room early to ensure he wouldn’t miss any big moments, and stayed later than our scheduled time to capture our cake cutting.

    Ryan made sure we stayed on time with our schedule and got all the photos we wanted. When we ran into some snags or had to wrangle family members for portraits, he was patient and calm. He also warmly accepted our friend’s partner who is a professional photographer and wanted to shoot the ceremony too.

    Many of our guests commented afterward about how helpful and kind Ryan was, and we would enthusiastically recommend him to anyone looking for a wedding photographer in the future.

    Ryan was wonderful to work with!

    Ryan was wonderful to work with! He captured candid moments and told a story of our wedding, while making us (two extreme introverts) feel very comfortable. The outcome exceeded our expectations :)
