    They are the dream team photographers!

    I had the honor of working with Ryan multiple times鈥攁t a stateside vow ceremony, our destination wedding, and during a sunrise trash the dress session. Ryan ran in the rain with us, helped me climb a ladder in order to sit on a swing, and dodged waves in the ocean for us to make our photo dreams come true! You won鈥檛 find a more committed, kind, and thoughtful photographer! He is organized, creative, attentive to details, and has the best second shooter: his wife, Laura. They are a flawless team and were such a joy to work with.

    Our photos are absolutely stunning and undoubtedly captured the intimacy and emotion of each event. Ryan is truly gifted in his ability to anticipate sweet moments and capture them so candidly. We are so grateful for our investment and will forever treasure the ability to relive our special days.

    Professional, Fun & Felt Like Family

    Ryan and his wife, Laura, were a dream to work with. They fit right into the process on the wedding day. On the day of your wedding you feed off of the energy of the people around you, from getting ready to the grand send off. They have such a loving and professional energy that made me feel at ease. They move like clock work so you don't have to worry one bit. I felt like every moment was genuine and they knew how to capture the night. I also used Ryan for my bridal portraits and I was amazed at his creativity and ability to capture my personality in every photo. A great team that I would recommend to anyone and everyone!

    Perfect experience for me

    I met Ryan and his wife, Laura, at a Bridal Show. I was instantly drawn to them as a team. Not only was their work captivating, but they have wonderful personalities as well and really try to get to know you to capture the best photographic moments of your special day. He also sweetly obliged to all my Pinterest requests, and stole us away from the reception for some romantic moonlight shots. He was such a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an amazing photographer. Thank you!

    Great Experience

    From the moment I reached out to Ryan, he was invested not just in our wedding but our story. The photographer was the most important vendor to me and I spent months searching for the right one. Ryan calmed my nerves about choosing wrong with his quick replies and willingness to work with any situation. He shot my bridals and our wedding and I can鈥檛 say enough positive things! Ryan and his wife are experts at stepping up and giving direction when needed but also sitting back and capturing the moment. He worked with the weather for our windy March wedding and got along so well with everyone that was a part of the day. He even lended my husband his tie clip!
    Ryan (and Laura) far exceeded my expectations during the wedding planning process and the actual day. We couldn鈥檛 have asked for better photographers!

    Neta & Joseph

    We loved working with Ryan and Laura for our Engagement, Bridal, and Wedding Photos. They made the photoshoot very fun and laidback which we really appreciated. They rally captured all the emotions on the Wedding Day and really helped keep me calm throughout the whole process. We could not be happier with how the pictures came out. I really appreciated how between each of the 3 shoots Ryan would sit down with me and go through the photos so we could identify what I like best to incorporate more of that into the next shoot. We are so happy Ryan and Laura were part of our big day and would definitely go back to work with them for future occasions.

    My husband and I loved working with Ryan and Laura. Ryan photographed my sister's wedding and after searching around we decided we wanted him to photograph our wedding as well! We were impressed with the combined experience of Ryan and Laura and the quality of their work. Ryan made the planning process easy and we had absolutely no complaints.

    Ryan and his wife were everything we needed on our wedding day. Everything from capturing my husbands pictures, even though he didn鈥檛 have a grooms room, to capturing the best moments of the entire night! I still cherish the engagement photos Ryan captured. And I still get complimented on my AMAZING bridal portraits that he did. Ryan knew the best locations and angles during my bridal session, and I couldn鈥檛 be happier. I can鈥檛 compliment this husband and wife team enough. I will always recommend them! And to top it all off, they are so sweet and enjoyable to be around!

    Ryan did an amazing job at our wedding!!! He truly captured the emotions of the day without ever being in the way of anything! He nailed the family pictures and the candids from the reception were wonderful. We got out pictures back right on time and couldn't have been more pleased!

    Absolutely loved working with Ryan and Laura. They were easy to make contact with and made sure they knew everything we wanted out of our pictures for our wedding. Ryan really got to know our families and story to make all the shots perfect. From the beginning of the day to the end of the night they were always there to get the perfect shots. I would recommend them for anyone looking for an amazing photographer.

    The first time I saw Ryan O'Dowd's work, I knew I wanted him to shoot my wedding. I love how well he's able to capture real and candid moments, and he nailed that with our wedding photos! On top of being incredibly talented, Ryan is organized, professional, and one of the most down to earth people you will meet. He and his wife, Laura, were such a joy to work with. I highly recommend them!

    Perfect choice for our daughter鈥檚 wedding

    Ryan made all of us feel very comfortable from our first meeting. He was flexible and excited to provide amazing memories for our daughter鈥檚 wedding. Ryan made sure the bridal photos were taken at the right time of day, was creative with the shots, worked well coordinating with all the other vendors at the wedding and reception and made sure to capture all the photos we requested. Additionally, he got amazing candid shots and we never felt like he was in the way. The wedding album is gorgeous and all of the photos are beautiful. Photography was one of our biggest priorities when wedding planning and we interviewed many different professionals before selecting Ryan. We could not have been happier with our choice.

    My best advice is to find someone you want to hang out with all day on your wedding day. Ryan and Hannah met us before we made any decisions, spent time getting to know us and made us feel comfortable during our engagement and wedding photos. For those of us who aren't natural models, finding someone you feel comfortable with is key, it will make taking photos much more natural and fun! I would highly recommend working with Ryan O'Dowd Photography. We loved our pictures and received a lot of compliments.

    We had the true honor of having Ryan and Laura shoot our engagement photos and photograph our destination wedding in San Francisco. We met Ryan and Laura at a local Bridal Show in Dallas where we also reside. After a second meeting to learn more about their services and discuss our wedding, we knew they were the ones to photograph our Engagement and our special day. So much so that we asked them to travel both to Waco, Texas for our Engagement Photos and to San Francisco for the Wedding. We did this not for any other purpose than that these two individuals treated us like family from the start and thus, we knew they would treat all our wedding guests the same. We truly enjoyed them as people. They were flexible with their ability to travel and even made it a point to arrive early and scout out our venue to craft a plan for the wedding rather than just showing up the day-of. My husband and I really just can't say enough about Ryan O'Dowd Photography. If you are looking for true partners and even better PEOPLE, at their core, Ryan and Laura are the ones for you. Our entire wedding party loved working with them and the icing on the cake is the actual photos. We appreciated all the detail that were captured without us even knowing it. Ryan and Laura gave us tremendous memories through photos and friendship. You just can't make a better choice for your event. Thank you, Ryan O'Dowd Photography!
