WHAT SAY YOU?
"He had to stand in the rain in order to accomplish many of these shots, which meant so much to us, and the results were stunning."
"He's a friendly and mellow individual that and goes with the flow, which we found helpful as we were running around."

We can't thank Ryan enough for the amazing work he did on our engagement and wedding photos. We got married in a little town in the Russian River Valley but live in Southern California. We were nervous when booking someone since we wouldn't able to meet them in person. Ryan jumped on a call with us and asked us a number of questions to get to know us and made us feel comfortable. He set up an engagement session for us in Oakland which turned out amazing. On the day of the wedding he took family portraits as we asked but my favorite photos are the candid shots that captured the sweet and fun moments of the day. We love how all the pictures turned out, he's super talented. He's also a friendly and mellow individual that and goes with the flow, which we found helpful as we were running around. Our friends and family loved him and we can't thank him enough of capturing the day

Ryan did an incredible job capturing our wedding day up in Sonoma County. We were looking for someone who could take a lot of candid photos, and after finding Ryan's portfolio online we felt confident that he'd be able to capture real moments among our family and friends without the corny, oversaturated aesthetic of so many wedding photographers. When we got our album back from him, we knew we'd made the right decision. Our pre-wedding setup was pretty chaotic, partially due to lots of rain, but Ryan showed up plenty early to scout indoor and covered locations to shoot. He himself had to stand in the rain in order to accomplish many of these shots, which meant so much to us, and the results were stunning. We are both fairly camera shy and aren't too keen on posed photos, but we knew we'd want at least a few of those. Ryan was able to steer us through the process and give us plenty of directions that put us at ease. We were on the fence about whether to spring for wedding photography since our budget was very tight, but we don't regret it at all. He captured so many fun and touching moments between our friends and family, and took some absolutely gorgeous and intimate portraits of our loved ones. It's been such a joy looking through the photos and reliving the day. His photos are also a wonderful gift to be able to give our guests. If you're looking for photographer in the Bay Area, wine country or anywhere near those areas, you can't go wrong with Ryan; he's a friendly, laid-back, hardworking and incredibly talented photographer.
