About

My name is Ryan O'Connor

I've been a full time freelancer since 2006 after graduating from Columbia College Chicago with a Bachelor of Arts in cinematography. I am based west of Chicago, and have had the pleasure of serving couples all over Illinois, Wisconsin, Iowa and Indiana.

I enjoy catching natural, candid moments as opposed to staged or rehearsed actions. To me, the details are what make a wedding unique. And I make an effort to make sure those little moments, gestures, looks, or personal touches are captured so you'll always be reminded of them.

As a one-man company, you'll be working directly with me - no middlemen. I shoot and edit my own footage, and I take your requests directly which makes the workflow smooth & easy for both of us. The most valuable things that I can offer you are reliability, respect, and professionalism. I do everything possible to make sure my clients are happy with my work and my work ethic.

For more examples of my work, please visit my website. At the top of the page, you'll find a Youtube playlist with a few dozen examples

9/23/23 Wedding

We absolutely loved having Ryan as our videographer for our wedding on 9/23/23. He was so pleasant to work with and our video turned out amazing. Not only was our video great, but communication with him throughout the whole process was incredible. I can’t thank him or recommend him enough! Thanks for all that you did for us, Ryan. You’re one cool dude 😎

The best videographer this side of the Mississippi!

Ryan captured our day to perfection! His ability to film while somehow remaining out of site and out of mind is just what we wanted for our wedding day. The only way I can describe Ryan’s style of editing is “WOW”. Our entire family has loved watching both our trailer and full-day edit, even getting laughs from some of Ryan’s unique add-ins. I cannot recommend RJO Photo & Video enough. Thanks to Ryan we will always be able to look back on our perfect day.
