I knew Ryan would be my photographer even before learning he was the preferred photographer for my venue. His personality is top-notch, making myself, my husband, and my guests feel at ease in front of his camera. Also, I appreciated that he recognized the quality of the light outside. Even though we didn’t intend to do outdoor pictures (it was January), I am so glad he suggested it – they are my absolute favorite pictures of the entire day. Totally worth freezing for.

I really appreciated his flexibility – we had some atypical requests about the engagement photo shoot and he was happy to modify his standard package to meet our needs.

Ryan was easy to reach and made us feel that things were always “under control”. Overall, he coordinated well with his team, eased our minds about the whole day, and added greatly to the wedding of our dreams.

We met Ryan a couple years ago at a bridal show. We loved his work and personality! We immediately booked him as our photographer. So glad we did!!! He was easy to work with and always available via phone, email, or text. We got married on September 17, 2017 . We booked Ryan for the entire day. Starting off with getting ready and ending the night with a sparkler-send- off!!!! Ryan did an outstanding job. We had a short amount of time between the ceremony and reception, but he knew exactly how to organize family and friends for pictures. He was able to capture all the sweet moments and details of our big day. A month later, we already have our professional photos and all the pictures can easily be shared with friends and family. We can’t thank him enough. All the pictures turned out incredible. We highly recommend Ryan!!! He is professional, highly energetic, and creates beautiful photographs.

Ryan was wonderful on our wedding day. He has a great talent of being unobtrusive during the event, while capturing beautiful moments. He also has an amazing energy without being overbearing. I feel lucky as I found Ryan’s team based on the sheer skill of his photography- when I was looking at other photos done at my venue, I noticed how special and interesting they were. They really stood out to me! At that point, I knew he was talented, but did NOT know how wonderful he was to work with, which my husband and I quickly found out on our big day.So many of our guests commented on his energy, general friendliness, and charisma. We had a lot of demanding characters involved in this wedding (of course, all just wanting the best) and he was amazing despite all of it! Also, all guests loved our photo booth. I now also have a memorable video of dancing with my husband to “Living on A Prayer” with him in a giant panda head…

I would highly recommend Ryan and his team to all brides and grooms! AMAZING!!

When you’re standing outside in 90+ degree weather trying to corral 40 people into the same picture (many with a poor grasp of English), and this is only the first of around 15 group shots you need to take, and your photographer is the cheeriest, calmest person in the group, you know you’ve found a good one.
My wife and I hired Ryan to do our engagement shoot, and more recently, our wedding. We could not be happier with our decision. Perhaps Ryan’s greatest strength is the sheer enthusiasm he has for his work. It’s easy to see that he just loves taking amazing pictures, and he went above and beyond to get those great shots for us. His photos of us were beautiful, artistic, and romantic. At our wedding, he stayed past the contracted time because he looked at the lighting outside and thought he could get some phenomenal photos, and based upon the samples we’ve seen, he was absolutely right. Ryan is professional, personable, easy to work with, and clearly highly experienced. We strongly recommend him and would hire him again for any event.

We met Ryan at a Bridal Show in North NJ, his work spoke for itself. He did our engagement shoot first and was amazing, my husband is not a fan of taking pictures and Ryan made it so easy and captured amazing shots for us. He was so laid back and made us feel so comfortable. We knew after receiving our pictures we made the right choice for the wedding. On our wedding day it was raining in the morning and Ryan assured me that it was the best weather for pictures and that the sun would come out soon and he was right! We have received so many compliments on our pictures because they were perfect! He even went into the woods to capture some amazing shots for us! If you want someone who is personable, friendly, easy going, professional but still have fun with your group then he is your guy! Thank you so much for making our day so special Ryan!

Ryan is not only an incredibly talented photographer but a wonderful person with a positive spirit! He memorialized our wedding day with his beautiful photos, which my friends, family and everyone I show them to-cant get over! They all say they look like they should be in a magazine! Ryan far out-shined our expectations. We absolutely enjoyed his presence, which wasn’t like the annoying-get-in-the-way photographers we’ve encountered at other weddings. At times, it was as if he wasn’t even there….but he was, catching every moment that we shared with our family and friends that day in the most beautiful manner. There were endless amounts of beautiful photos to choose from to put in our album, that was the ONLY difficult part. Great problem to have! I recommend him to anyone and everyone for all occasions! We will certainly use him again for other great life events in our future 🙂

Ryan is a really great photographer — so easy to work with, and takes awesome photos! We chose him to do our wedding photos after looking through his portfolio online and then meeting with him. We especially liked the candid shots he takes. His photos give a sense of intimacy and energy all at the same time, and he’s just a really great and optimistic personality – exactly what you want on your big day. We also had him do an engagement shoot for us. On both occasions, he was energetic, easy to work with, and eager to take an absolute ton of shots.

His pricing is extremely reasonable, and he was very flexible with some location changes we had as our wedding plans settled. Ryan is a great communicator in general, and he’s very quick to respond to emails. I really appreciated that during the reception, he scouted out another great location for a quick additional portrait session for us. We were impressed by the quality of his work and the initiative he takes in making sure you get excellent photos. Even our guests were impressed! We had several comments from people who noticed how carefully he paid attention to what was going on and made sure he was positioned to get good shots — without getting in the way. Overall, we couldn’t be happier with Ryan’s work!

Ryan did an AMAZING job shooting both our engagement and wedding photos! The first time we met with him we really loved his upbeat attitude and organization! He is very friendly and from the moment you meet him you can tell he really loves what he does! We had a very hot day for our engagement photos and he made everything work out! Everyone actually can’t believe it was so hot because the pictures look amazing! On our wedding day he made everyone feel comfortable and at ease. When you have a million things on your mind someone that takes over professionally and has everything organized is exactly who you want in your corner! He did an absolutely beautiful job shooting our wedding, the pictures are stunning! I actually cried when he put up our blog because it brought back all the wonderful memories we had on our Wedding day. He was the perfect photographer and we couldn’t have asked for a better person to work with. We can’t thank him enough for the amazing work he did! Thanks Ryan, you’re amazing!!

Deciding which photographer to use for your wedding day is not a decision to take lightly – these pictures will be around for decades after your wedding, and you want to be sure that they are perfect. Ryan Sands is your photographer. The love and attention he puts into every shot is so evident when you see the finished product. He is so gifted with finding the perfect lighting or background to make sure you look your best. His photos always turn out gorgeous! The hardest part was picking which photos to use in our album. There were too many to choose from! He always makes you feel comfortable, and stays out of your way during your special day. I can’t wait for future milestones, as I will definitely be using Ryan to capture our special moments. Thank you, Ryan, for ensuring that we will be able to relive every moment of our wedding day in such a beautiful way.

Ryan is not just great at what he does, he is the type of person that blends into any situation – he’s friendly, he’s organized, and he’s able to take great photos without being obtrusive at all. The photos we have from our wedding are just beautiful, and he got such amazing pictures of guests and bridal party alike, which i’m so thankful for! We got so many fantastic candid shots, which is exactly what i was hoping for. I’ve been to weddings where the photographers seemed pushy or didn’t really try to make people feel comfortable, and Ryan was just the opposite. He’s efficient and professional, and the whole day still felt really easygoing!
