We are a Professional Journalistic Lifestyle Photography Team. We Specialize in Photography of Gay and Lesbian Couples and Families with Same Sex Parents. We of course, do photograph straight couples too!
Our photographic style combines the aesthetics of photo journalism, creative fine art, and lifestyle photography. We love the candid, emotional and objective nature of photojournalism, the creative uniqueness and beauty of fine art, and the story and reflection of lifestyle photography.
Our personal working style is relaxed, free flowing, genuine, fun, and intimate. We take great pride and responsibility in knowing our subjects before a photo is ever taken. We treat every session as if we are photographing our closest friends. Often times, our subjects become our closest friends!
We love to watch people who are in love, react to, play off of and move each other. It’s not about perfect posing, the prettiest backdrop or perfect styling. It’s about those little moments when people are tuned in to, in awe of, and connected to each other. Those moments are what inspire us and make us continue to do and love what we do!

Sara+Ryan was EXACTLY what I was looking for. We wanted a photographer that understood that "posing" a same-sex couple was different than a straight couple. They made us feel very comfortable and made the shoot FUN! They didn't end up posing us very often, instead they asked us to just be ourselves and I have to say that that made our pictures turn out genuine and authentically US. When we look at our pictures, we see US, not stiff and uncomfortable, but just being who we are and loving each other they way we do on an everyday basis. Sara+Ryan captured that. Also, they are a straight couple who have a love and passion for the gay community. How awesome is that?! They were amazing. Our pictures turned out more beautiful than we ever imagined. They were professional, friendly and made our day fun and easy. Thank you Sara+Ryan for helping make our special day a day we will never forget!!!Sent on 02/04/2014

Sara & Ryan were the perfect photographers for us. They were very easy to contact, flexible with last minute changes to location and date, and kept in constant communication with us. When we met them, they were lovely, relaxed and professional. We kind of forgot they were there - in the nicest possible way! I thought it would make me feel a bit uncomfortable being constantly photographed, but they didnt make us feel that way at all. We loved having them there, and still keep in contact with them to this day. Great people, and really great photographs! Thanks Sara & Ryan! :)Sent on 03/09/2014

Sara and Ryan photographed our wedding this past June in Laguna Beach, California. My now wife and I are originally from back east, and never really felt at home in the O.C. The vibe out there is, well…not for us. When we started searching for our photographer, we came across many high-end companies dropping names and peddling their celebrity wedding shots. This was the exact opposite of what we wanted for our small, intimate event. We finally stumbled across www.saraplusryan.com (our photos are posted on their blog, Lauren and Peg) and knew instantly they would get it. And us.Sent on 07/29/2013
On the big day, they arrived early and made us feel at ease while we got ready. We had a “first look” session before the ceremony that, to my surprise, wasn’t awkward AT ALL. These two make you feel so comfortable you forget all that and just enjoy the moment with your partner. They flew through the obligatory (read: boring) family portraits in no time, which we personally appreciated. Though I’m sure they’d tailor time spent on certain shots to whatever the couple wanted. During the ceremony, they captured so many emotions in such unique ways. And at the reception, you literally don’t realize they’re even there. This made for incredibly candid, genuine shots of many intimate moments with our families and friends.
We received our photos in no time (2 weeks tops) via an email system that was very convenient to download, order prints and share with others. Going through them the first time, we were floored. Their style is one of photojournalism- it told the story our day without words. We couldn’t be happier with Sara and Ryan’s services, and will cherish the memories they gave us forever. If you’re a couple looking for a down-to-earth, reasonably priced, incredibly talented pair of photographers who will make you feel comfortable and do a job that exceeds your expectations, go with S+R. You won’t be disappointed!
Sara + Ryan Photography are an amazing team that will capture every moment of your event in a creative and fun way! They have a really unique style that sets them apart. They did some portraits of me and my husband that I will cherish forever. I highly recommend these two for any of your photography needs!
Sara and Ryan make an awesome team. They both love what they do and it shows in their work. They always keep up to date on all the latest trends and do an amazing job capturing the story of your wedding day!
