About Heather & Ryan

We are a husband and wife wedding photography studio based in the Seattle area.  We also service the island of Hawaii with an office on the Big Island.   Our studio provides creative and affordable wedding photography for our couples.   Since 2o07, we’ve personally photographed over 500 weddings around the area and around the world – and we bring that experience to every wedding we photograph.

Wedding planning is the single biggest planning event that most of us will undertake.  And your wedding photographer is one of the most important vendor choices you’ll choose.   Events by Heather & Ryan has become one of the most sought after wedding photography studios in the area.  We specialize in high quality and affordable wedding photography and videography services.   Our team uses a documentary style, story telling approach to every wedding.  Effectively understanding your vision and is key to getting the best wedding photographs.  Your wedding day is the story of your lives, and our goal is to capture and tell that story in a way that expresses emotion and and detail.  Just as photojournalism tells a story – documentary photography takes those same images and brings life to them and explains the story leading up to them in pictures.  The end result allows you to not only look at your pictures, but the essence captivates your imagination and allows you to relive your wedding through our photographs.

By selecting our studio for your wedding, our goal isn’t to simply take pictures at your wedding.  There are hundreds of photographers out there with varying degrees of professionalism ranging from amateur to professional who can do the same job for you without the personal attention.   Our goal and process is more refined.  Our ambition is to discover and understand your vision and expectations for your wedding photographs.  Knowing what’s important to you and how you want your story told is paramount.   The key to creating prized and cherished wedding photographs lies in knowing how you want to remember your wedding.  And the answer to that question is different and unique with every couple we meet and for every wedding we photograph.   It’s not the “what” question we want to answer.  It’s the “why”.  But in the end, it’s these kinds of details that ensure you’ll be happy with the high quality and personalized service we provide to you.   The better we know you, the better we’ll be able to photograph your wedding.   And in the end, our pictures will speak for themselves and you’re going to love what we give you.

Now for the fun stuff.  As your photographer, your experience with us doesn’t start or end the day of your wedding.  We’ll get to know you before the wedding, starting with the day we first meet.  We’ll be with you during your entire wedding and reception, capturing the most important – the most intimate moments for you so you can relive them years from now.  We’ll then carefully cull through, categorize and process each photograph through a vigorous post-production process.  The final photographs we provide to you will be unique and exclusive of each other.  Each photograph tells its own story, and our mission is to uncover that story for you.

We hope that your first encounter with our studio is only the beginning.  We’d like to develop a lifetime relationship with you so we can be your photographer of choice for the events in life that come along later, like pregnancies, anniversaries, newborn and infants, boudoir (for those special occasions) and more.  Our studio proudly offers family portrait photography as well.  If you’re looking for amazing wedding photography, then look no further.  Heather & Ryan provide Seattle and the Puget Sound area with the best wedding photography in the area.  Whether you’re having a small get together or a large 200+ guest wedding, we offer a unique approach that blends creative elements with the best experience designed to match your personality.  As you know, no two weddings are alike.  Your wedding day is the first chapter in the story of your lives together…and our job is to capture every aspect of your wedding day, from your interaction together down to the details and everything in between.  In the end, you’re left with something magical that can forever be cherished.

If you’d like to meet us up close and in person, or if you have questions about what our studio can do for you, please call or email us for more information.  We’d love to sit down over coffee to discuss your wedding or other photography goals.  Chances are, if you’re reading this, you like our work and you’ll love what we can do for you.
