    They were great. They stayed the whole evening right up to the end of the reception. They worked with the bride ( even when she almost fainted at the wedding) to make the captured photos amazing. They are first class.

    Ryan was amazing from my first encounter with him at the bridal extravaganza. There were so many photographers to choose from but I just had a feeling we needed to book with him. He was always available by text or email. He never acted like he was in a rush when he was working with us. He is very down-to-earth and friendly. My guests were commenting about how nice he was and what a great job he was doing being everywhere throughout the day. He even helped play messenger between us and other vendors during the reception. He went above and beyond to make sure we were happy. Thank you Ryan for making such a positive impact on our special day.

    Ryan was truly a joy to have photograph our wedding. My husband is a professional wedding photographer and this was his one item he got to choose and Ryan was a perfect fit! We cant wait to see our pictures, we feel really blessed to have made a new friend.

    Ryan was fantastic to work with. We got our pictures back faster than I could have imagined and they are beyond what I could have ever asked for. So glad we went with Ryan!

    The whole experience working with Ryan Hamilton was perfect! He was always flexible with our schedules and had great input for different photo opportunities and locations. He had a great attitude every step of the way and everyone enjoyed having him take the photos. Our ceremony was outdoors with indoor reception that had difficult lighting. His abilities and talents working in different ranges of natural light to harsh fluorescent lighting was impressive! We absolutely love our photos and how crisp and clean they all are.
    Our photography aspect of the wedding was stress free and super enjoyable thanks to Ryan. We look forward to working with him in the future!

    Our experience with Ryan was beyond excellent! Not only are his images beautifully captured and edited, but he was punctual, professional and very personable. We especially loved the personal touches he provided during our ceremony and reception. We couldn't be happier with our decision to hire him and would confidently recommend him to anyone searching for a great photographer in the San Antonio area. You will not be disappointed! Thank you, Ryan!

    Ryan was great! He was willing to work with us when it came to our schedule and even when we changes around our package because we opted out of engagement and bridal photos that I didn't really want with a baby on the way before the wedding. He was quick to respond and was able to work through email with us living in houston, planning for a san antonio wedding. The day of he was amazing! He captured every moment that I hoped and didn't miss a beat. He was a lot of fun to be around and was also very professional while doing so. It wasn't just stand here, look there ,you could tell he enjoys what he does by how much fun he had with us and making sure everything was exactly what we wanted and every picture we wanted as taken. I enjoyed having him as our photographer and would definitely recommend him! Thanks again Rtan!

    Ryan was such a great photographer I am so pleased with all the pictures he sent in with our CD even the laser printing was such a nice touch. He is friendly and warm very easy to relax to be able to get you in that perfect natural element to get the "True" look that every bride wants in their pictures. I am so pleased with the ideas and the backgrounds that he selected to take pictures around he captured such random moments but when we see it all play together it is almost like relive the day again but this time we see it instead of living it!! I could not be more pleased and happy with the final outcome, My husband and I joked that since we were not from San Antonio and were going off of what could be worked out with little notice (considering a mishap from a previous vendor) we had 7 days to basically pull a ceremony together and with a photographer. Well the Vendor we worked with was able to secure Ryan for us, we told ourselves not to expect a lot as long as we get a few good shots out of the deal we will be happy we even said we will be happy with one good shot...WELL!!!! Needless to say we love all of them!!!!!!! He caught such emotion in the pictures from not only us but our guest as well and it was just so nice to be able to look back and see what we missed or what we don't remember from the day. I am so thankful for how it all worked out I honestly think we ended up with the best and am so pleased!! Thank you Ryan! Ashley Rice

    Ryan did an amazing job on my bridal portraits and covering our wedding day. He was very fast at responding to our emails, easy to work with, very accommodating, fun, and professional. He provided us with a ton of photos that captured the day and each event perfectly. His photos make us feel like we are reliving the day all over again when we look through them. We ended up giving Ryan the nickname "Mr. Crisp" for his pictures are very crisp, clear, and detail oriented. You can tell he is passionate at what he does and he ensures that his clients are happy. If you are looking to have your memories captured in the moment, Ryan is your guy!

    Ryan Hamilton Photography's reply:

    Mr. Crisp is the best nickname in the world. I'm so happy for you both and am very glad to have been a part of your day!

    Ryan was amazing! He is great and easy to work with. Knows when and where to take the best photos. He pays so much attention to detail and captures those special moments. He is definitely a photographer that you can trust and rely on, especially when you are all over the place with all of the other details of the day! I'm so ecstatic about how beautiful the photos came out!

    Ryan was an absolute blast to work with! He definitely made it feel like we were old friends and had known each other for forever. He is very personable and his warm and genuine personality makes the photo taking process so much easier. My fiancé at the time was a little uneasy about standing in front of a camera and posing but Ryan had both of us laughing and our photos turned out great. My bridals were absolutely beautiful, too. The day of the wedding, Ryan got all of the shots we were wanting plus some. I was so lucky to find him and highly recommend him to anyone.

    Ryan Hamilton photography was recommended to my husband and I by several sources and did not disappoint ! Ryan was amazing to work with. He was very proffessional and had a great sense of humor during our photo shoots which made for a great time. He paid a lot of attention to detail and does a great job of capturing the entire timeline of your wedding day. I especially loved this because the big day was such a whirlwind of excitement that it's hard to really take in everything. We were able to almost re-live the day through his shots. Ryan's experience and talent speak for themselves through his photos. Will definitely recommend him to any new brides in the market for a friendly, experienced, (and decently priced) photographer!

    Ryan Hamilton shot our small outdoor wedding (San Antonio River Walk) with the evening sunlight. I asked for both traditional & creative work with an emphasis on capturing "moments". He delivered in every aspect. When I suggested a particular pose or angle, he was happy to accommodate us. He was flexible with our particular requests and delivered our final photos quickly & professionally. I could not have asked for better experience than what was provided for us by Ryan Hamilton Photography. The photos were beautiful & plentiful. He included both standard full color shots as well as black/white & filtered work. His use of "depth of field" & natural lighting was outstanding. If you are looking for a reasonable photographer who has that "eye" for capturing those treasured moments with a gorgeous photo, please consider giving Ryan a call.

    I am not one to give reviews, but felt this one was well deserved. Ryan was friendly, professional and accommodating to any request we had. He took pictures of everything we requested and much, much more! My daughter chose him without ever meeting him and she could not have made a better decision. The photos are creative and stunning!!!!! Anyone looking for a photographer for any occasion could not go wrong and will be completely satisfied with all he has to offer. The price is amazing as well, you get much more than you pay for.

    Ryan was phenomenal!! His attitude and personality really brought out the best in every single person evolved in the wedding. I had multiple people compliment me on having such an active and outgoing photographer. Ryan's energy and quirky attitude helped generate many memorable moments that he was also able to beautifully capture on film. I cannot thank Ryan enough for not only shooting my wedding, but also for making it so much more than I could have ever anticipated. Thank you Ryan!!!

    Ryan was my photographer for my bridal portraits and wedding. He is so fun and very easy to work with. He is very personable and has a lot of ideas to help you with whatever you need. The pictures and photo albums that he put together are amazing and great quality. He captured so many memories at my wedding, that I still love to look back at them and remember each part of that night.
