I can't say enough positive things about my experience with Ryan from Upward Films. His vision is amazing, he's an absolute joy to work with. He knows how to capture moments without being intrusive, allowing for a genuine feel to the whole day. I appreciated his thoughtfulness, always double checking that people were camera ready before he entered a room. When I watched his final product for the day, I cried. It was perfect. He clearly knows what he's doing and goes about his work with a constant smile. Do yourself a favor, hire him!!

Ryan is an amazing videographer! He really took into consideration everything we were looking to capture and the moments he got were so candid. I had multiple people come up to me during the wedding and mentioned how Ryan was such a kind and awesome person. I am so grateful he was able to do our wedding and the highlight film turned out so great! Ryan is truly one of a kind and you can tell he has a passion for video.

One of the best wedding decisions we made was having Ryan with Upward Films as our videographer! Ryan was very easy to talk to and kind, my husband and I felt comfortable meeting him from the beginning and with the filming and interaction. Our family even commented on how nice and personable he was. He was professional and always kept us up to date on the process before the event and after, regarding the timeline of videos. He even attended the rehearsal to scope out the area and grab footage! I love how all his videos are different and tell a story! You can truly see how much thought and talent he puts into his work! He captured our story perfectly! The preview video was amazing, but wow; he blew us away with the highlight film! So amazing! Had us crying and laughing throughout! He captured moments we may not have seen or caught and somehow perfectly put a whole day into an amazing 8 minute highlight! I am so happy we had Ryan do our video and it is something we will cherish forever. Friends that weren't at the wedding commented on how they felt as if they had been there. He is very creative and talented and did an amazing job, I can't say enough! Highly recommend!! Worth every penny!!!!! Thank you Ryan!

Ryan is extremely friendly & professional! I worked with him back in March and from the beginning, it was a breeze. He was kind, thoughtful, and has a passion for his craft. We worked fabulously together and the end product he produced for the bride & groom we worked with was amazing!
Amazing vendor with an artful eye! Ryan is super talented and his work is absolutely beautiful! He was very friendly and upbeat when he filmed a wedding at our venue. I wish I would’ve known about Ryan and Upward Films when I got married! You can tell he appreciates each of his clients and really takes the time to get to know them. I highly recommend this vendor and hope we get to work together again soon!
