Introduction: ***2021 SPECIAL: Weddings are a flat $200/hr. No additional fees. 3 hour minimum.*** Welcome! I pride myself on the quality of my work as well as my ability to blend into your event, keeping the photography fun so you can enjoy YOUR SPECIAL DAY! My reviews say it best: "we felt so comfortable because Ryan made the whole thing easy and enjoyable! AND not to mention the photos turned out so great! He is not only a great people person but a very talented photographer!" "Ryan is super personable and really connected with the over 100 people at our party. He seemed to be always there snapping candid and staged shots, but not intrusive." Another reason to choose me over the competition: I deliver your photos to you the next day to a shared Google Drive folder. This way you can share your favorites on social media right away! Once you have a chance to go over your photos and pick your favorites, I can do Photoshop magic and get them back to you within a couple days' time. I love capturing people's special moments. Everyone has a unique story to be told through photography. I enjoy experiencing the diversity in California, as families of all stripes have welcomed me into their lives with open arms. I'm grateful, and looking forward to discovering YOUR story. Past clients include: Google, T-Mobile, Facebook, Twitter, Twitch, and most importantly, lots of awesome people like YOU!

I selected Ryan as my photographer for my small backyard wedding. He was so easy to work with, was fun and easygoing and I felt comfortable with him immediately! Ryan not only took some classic wedding shots of me and my family, but he also took some of the best candid shots I have ever seen! Ryan really did a great job capturing the emotion of the day. His photos are so beautiful I had a hard time narrowing them down. I would highly recommend Ryan for any event.

Engagement Photography

Wow just wow! Speechless 😶 Ryan was great to work with. We are camera shy and He made us feel comfortable and at ease. Laughter and smiling the whole engagement session! Then he surprised me with how responsive and quick we received our google drive of our photos the same day! So many wonderful photos! If you are looking for a great photographer don’t hesitate to contact Ryan 😀

Wedding and Event Photography

Amazing! If you are having an event you definitely need to hire Ryan. My daughter’s wedding was on January 11, 2020 which Ryan was our photographer. Once again, I was glancing over all the photos of the church ceremony and reception, Ryan captured so many touching moments. The pictures immediately took me back to that special day. He engaged all my guest in the photos. The results truly show his talent and professionalism. Thank You Ryan!

My fiance and I had an amazing time working with Ryan for our engagement photo shoot! Neither of us had ever worked with a photographer before, and Ryan made it feel like a fun date. We were laughing and smiling the whole time. The pictures came out beautiful! Thank you @Ryan! Would 100% recommend!

Ryan was so great to work with! We hired Ryan for our micro wedding ceremony and cannot say enough good things. He was really easy to communicate with beforehand and throughout the day was fun, friendly, and extremely hard working. We had a great day taking pictures before the ceremony and truly loved how open Ryan was to our ideas, while also bringing in his expertise to help us create some truly beautiful and special pictures. Our friends and family members commented throughout the day at how much they liked him and the experience of working with him. Highly recommend!

  • 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.
