Elizabeth and Pitra had a very intimate wedding surrounded by 14 of their closest family members at Elizabeth's childhood retreat at Apple Canyon Lake. I love intimate weddings and strongly believe that they are a true test of a photographer's abilities as there's absolutely no way to "fake it", to hide behind volume. Photographically speaking, you have to be able to put your money where your mouth is, and that's a wonderful thing. But don't take it from my mouth, take it from Elizabeth:
"Coming from out of state, I was not able to meet Ryan until the day of our wedding. We communicated via email and also had a phone call. Well after meeting him, I could tell right off the bat, he would be so easy to work with. And once I saw our photos, I could not be more pleased with him! Ryan absolutely blew us away! We could tell right off the bat that he was a consummate professional - he was on time, he suggested photos I had not thought of, he gave my husband and I direction, he was fine with taking shots at a different location nearby on the day of that we had not previously discussed and you actually forget he is there! I could not be more happy with our photos- they are absolutely stunning and I love not just the photos we posed for, but also all the great surprise shots of the day I did not expect! He captured the big and the little moments that truly tell the entire day. He even left us with a few mini polaroids as a sample before the night was over. He has a quick turnaround with getting your photos back to you - we received ours 8 days later! And he also surprised us with a photo slideshow of the day! He is A+++ so if you are looking for a great photographer - look no further, he is the best!!" - Elizabeth.
Thank you - here's a look back:
