More About Me
Hello and welcome to my website, thank you for your time.
My name is Ryan and hopefully you can tell that wedding photography isn't a passion of mine as it's more of an obsession!
Please remember I offer free no obligation consultations which includes a wedding plan, portfolio viewing and a very relaxed environment.
Lets mention my wedding photography style- I would say my style and wedding theme throughout has changed over the years and has adapted due to experience, camera change, the trained eye and life experiences. Its a unique concoction of people within a landscape, creative portraits, vibrance, good light reading skills and a natural Style throughout.
Doing my A level in photography right up to the BA-Hons given me the knowledge of a camera and extensive research of photography, art and business. It also give me great opportunities to work on different types of photography from studio work to even Paparazzi and food photography but to be honest non of that was for me and i soon come to realise wedding photography was something I loved, enjoyed and cared about. My style works wonders when photographing that adventurous couple who want an informal approach to wedding photography and the pre wedding experience always helps with that.
Why I'm blessed- I met the most supportive and amazing women in my life and married her in April 2019 which was the best day of my life. I thought if I get married it would defiantly help my career due to Lauren being a maths teacher and can do my accounts haha jokes.. Seriously though getting married did help me when being a full time uk wedding photographer because its made me so much more interactive with clients and they have all been in my shoes, I know how they feel, the questions they are asking themselves IE "my bank account looks different" "will she ever turn up" This led me to rethink my packages and to be realistic.
Personally the wedding planning can be a scary time and to be fair I don't know why because the wife arranged everything to be honest haha.. I did however have two jobs, the first was booking the most important wedding supplier and the other was turning up on the day.. Can you guess what my first job this to do? haha. The wedding photographer of course! Choosing my photographer was a challenge, I had to practise what I preached every day and that was to book someone you like, has that passion and dedication, someone you get on with and loves what they do because in my search it actually surprised me. I noticed so many photographs that lost that passion, they turn up, don't interact, don't smile or go that extra mile and just take the same typical photographs and leave the second the first dance is done which is the complete opposite of me and what I wanted. I found some photographers dont offer pre wedding experiences, charge for a meal and travel expenses even if the wedding is on their doorstep.
I take pride in every booking, Never take one wedding for granted and always try to work harder than the last. I wouldn't just say this was a passion of mine because I would be lying and its actually become more of an obsession, I think about my job constantly, working from the morning I open my eyes to them late messages from clients at 1am the next day!
Im always wanting to make my clients happy, thinking about how I can be different, try to never miss them important memories and to make their special day more special. RW Photography introduced live feeds/videos in to the group shots, interactive games throughout the day, Mexican wave, selfies, jokes and a little banta as we call it in merseyside.
My wife Lauren once said to me "I work hard to make sure I'm not just that typical photographer and that I become a big part of peoples weddings and give it that extra something."You only need to look at my facebook reviews and you will see clients also saying this. I think that's the first and only thing me and my wife have ever agreed on to be fair haha!
Im always searching for them shots that will stun my couples and I'm just so hungry to be the best at what I do which consists on picking up that camera every morning, capturing the best day of peoples lives at the most stunning venues, being friendly and engaging with everyone from morning prepartion to that first dance because that rubs of on the guests, makes everyone relax and forget about that scary camera and the result is natural photography.
I have always been creative and wanting to run my own business one day. This led me to pursue the route of photography. from multimedia, A level and graduated from University with a BA (Hons) in Photography. after that I decided I love the excitement and buzz of photographing weddings.
Please don't feel like your wasting time by asking questions I am more than happy to answer them under no obligation to be booked
If you got to this point I've probably bored you enough so please have a look around and if you like what you see send me a message.
Happy Wedding Planning
