We had an amazing time shooting with Ryan. We had never done a couple shoot before and he made sure we felt very comfortable and relaxed during the whole shoot - which made the experience really fun! He will give great recommendations about different poses you can make and different spots which would look great - which resulted in a lot of great shots. I would definitely recommend Ryan to couples looking to get their engagement/wedding pictures taken!Oct 21, 2018Verified

Ryan is an absolute joy to work with! He was there early, he brought extremely high-tech equipment, and he is very chill; no stress. He knew exactly how to get the light to work for what I wanted, and it was an amazing shoot. Ryan is a true creative professional and you will be in good hands. I highly, highly recommend his work. Ryan is also extremely responsive, and he had all my stuff uploaded to me within basically a few hours of the shoot. We are working on post processing now. I'm looking forward to working with Ryan again. He's a superb photographer! Thank you, Thumbtack!Apr 3, 2019VerifiedRyan Shiver Photography's reply
Thanks so much George! I had an amazing time collaborating with you on the shoot. It's always a pleasure to work with other artists. Hope to work together again in the future!

My fiancé and I were looking for an engagement photography on short notice and not only did Ryan come through, but he exceeded our expectations. He let us lead the way, but also stepped in and directed when we were feeling camera shy. We love our photos! Thanks Ryan!Mar 23, 2019VerifiedRyan Shiver Photography's reply
Thank you for that wonderful review Sarah! I had a great time and its easy to get amazing shots when you both bring such fun positive vibes. Best wishes!
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Pricing is set by how much time is spent on location the day of a shoot. General post processing is free, while advanced services like airbrushing is on a per-project basis.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Typically we engage in an introductory email exchange, so you can spell out exactly what it is that you're looking for in writing. We then either continue communicating by email or set up a phone or in person conversation. After the details are all ironed out, you would pay a 50% deposit to lock in the day. This can be done either though Paypal, Venmo, a money transfer or a mailed check. When the day comes, we then enjoy our time working together! Afterwards, I deliver you an SD card with your images. I have a copy as well, so any images you want processed can be delivered to you within a weeks time. After that, everyone is super happy and we look forward to working with each other again!
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have multiple degrees in Multimedia Art, along with many years of professional photography and video production experience.
