    Hi, I'm Ryan. I make photos.

    And I love music. I spent more than a decade living in New York City making my living playing music. All kinds. I’m a good improviser. Making photos is a lot like playing music. Assess the situation, react, interact. It’s thinking on your feet.

    When I picked up a camera for the first time I quickly felt like making pictures was the thing I should have been doing my whole life. I do a lot of it now. I like photos with people in them. People are unpredictable. That’s why they’re interesting.Christine and Bryce got married in Page Springs south of Sedona amid family and friends in what was a really beautiful and laid back affair. That’s the kind of people they are – easy going. And looming storm clouds didn’t change that at all. But worrying wouldn’t have done any good anyway. It never really does, right? As it turned out, the rain held off until the party was over. And it was a great party. I love a wedding where stress doesn’t ever enter the equation. It’s all about love and commitment people!

    Weddings are amazing. Super fun. I often end up dancing my way through reception photos. I really like collaborating with the couples I work with to make artistic images that tell the story of their wedding day. I shoot pictures for newspapers and I like working in a documentary style. When it comes to making portraits, I like to pull out some lights for a little drama.

    My favorite photos tell a story. Your wedding day is the culmination of part one of your story as a couple. And it’s the beginning of a new chapter in part two. It’s an emotional story. One that needs to be documented with care. I’ve got a handle on that.

    My job is really fun. My enthusiasm and easy going nature make folks on the other side of my lens feel really, really comfortable. Working with your photographer should be fun. Sure, you might not be a professional model and you might not feel like you know how to pose. You might even be a little nervous about taking photos. But it’s my job to make you feel at ease. And have a good time!

    Ever since I can remember, I have always been fascinated by artistic visuals. Certain colors, shapes, and textures seemed to capture my attention in a way that no person ever could. I remember getting my first camera when I was younger, and I wanted to take pictures of anything and everything (and I mean everything). Those photos mostly consisted of me and my friends – the people I loved. I did not know much about real photography at that point, but I knew it was something I wanted to learn.

    I decided to go to college and study business and photography. Through different assignments and projects in my photography classes, I realized that I loved shooting people (with a camera, don’t worry). I loved capturing emotion, but not just any kind of emotion – love. It is incredible to me that the one universal language can be wrapped up all in a simple photo. How amazing is that?!

    I have been shooting professionally for 3.5 years now, and I have come such a long way since the beginning. Based in Roanoke, Virginia, I am a natural light portrait and wedding photographer – the outdoors is my best friend! I like to use nature to enhance my photos without taking away from my subjects. Getting to know my clients before the shoot is big for me so that I can get a feel for who they are and make sure that I am conveying their personalities in my shots. It is important to me to make each person feel comfortable (I will act like a complete fool if I have to so that I can get genuine smiles) AND amazing in front of the camera so that it becomes a fun experience!

This sweet couple got married in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, and the setting could not have been more perfect. It was an overcast day (ideal for shooting), with just a bit of sprinkles falling from the sky here and there. I don’t want to be cheesy, but the sunshine came from the hearts of everyone in attendance (aaah so cheesy, I know!). Jon and Amanda did not let anything keep them from enjoying every single moment of that day. How could you anyway when you’re surrounded by all of the people you love? Oh goodness, I just love weddings! When my big day comes, I hope it measures up to just how amazing this one was!
