How did you meet?

We are high school sweethearts! We started dating when we were in an AP Physics class together!  The force of attraction made us inseparable!  Sorry for the corny physics joke (It’s a good thing we were in the same physics class instead of chemistry! ;) )  Growing up in a small town, we always knew of each other, but didn’t start dating until Ryan’s senior year and Liz’s junior year of high school.

Do you photograph things besides weddings?

Although weddings are our primary focus, we do photograph a select number of other sessions each year.  We LOVE documenting life’s amazing moments in a story telling way.  If you have an interesting idea for a session you would like photographed, we’d love to chat! (Especially if you are an editor of Food and Wine Magazine).  Send us an email at hello@lizandryan.com.

What do you mean by “Story Telling” Photography?

Life’s most AMAZING moments pass by in an instant.  We love being able to capture the essence of these moments in a way that tells a story for generations to come.  For engagement sessions, this means helping you build a fun date night that we just so happen to be photographing.  For a new family, this means capturing all the special moments as they happen, from the cries, to the laughs and everything in between.  See an example of a story telling session we did for Lindsley and Jeff as they vacationed in Paris, or a baby story we captured for Jennie, Adam and baby Charlotte.

How will we receive our photos?

Your images will be delivered digitally in two ways, via PASS, and on a DVD.

How long will it take for our photos to be ready?

We LOVE seeing and hearing how excited our clients get when they see their photos for the first time.  Exact delivery time depends on the time of year and our overall workload, but in general we do our best to get your photos back to you within 2-3 weeks.  If scheduling allows, we love to host reveal parties at our home for you to see your photos for the first time!

Do we have permission to print our photos ourselves?

Yes! You will receive a print release letter with your photos that will allow you to print your images wherever you choose.  We highly recommend www.mpix.com.  We also highly encourage you to share your photos online via Facebook, Twitter, Pinteres and Instagram!  Just be sure to give us photography credit when doing so!

We love your work, how can we book you for our wedding?

YAY! We LOVE you already!!! Jump on over to our contact page and fill out the online form.

What are your photography collection rates?

Our wedding collections currently start at $4000.  More info can be found below.

When did you start your business?

We started our business in 2009 and have been photographing AMAZING couple’s love stories ever since! Prior to starting our business, Liz was an event planner and marketing coordinator, while Ryan was an electrical and optical engineer.  Liz’s unique knowledge of business management and Ryan’s in-depth technical understanding of lenses and cameras have been key to the success of our business.

Do you offer engagement sessions?

We include an engagement session in all of our wedding collections.  We LOVE getting to know our couples as more than just clients.  An engagement session helps you get comfortable being photographed prior to your wedding.  Plus, it is a fun escape from the craziness that everyday life and wedding planning can be.  Our goal is to make your engagement session feel like a fun and romantic date that tells your unique love story.

What’s your favorite cupcake flavor?

Liz – double chocolate for sure!  Ryan – anything with peanut butter!

Our wedding is in Europe, will you travel abroad for weddings?

ABSOLUTELY!  We love destination weddings and traveling the world.  Check out our travel page to see where we’ve been and where we’d love to go.  Our travel costs vary by location, day of the week, and time of year.  Did we mention we LOVE to travel?!!  Because of this, we will do whatever we can to minimize travel costs in order to make sure we can be a part of your wedding!

Our Process

Say Hello

We love meeting new friends! Our process starts with a fun in-person consultation where we get to share some of our favorite treats and learn more about you. Can’t meet us in person? We can absolutely set up a Skype date! After agreeing to all the fine print, it’s time to get the party started!

BUILDING THE RELATIONSHIP

When you hire us, you are hiring more than photographers. You are hiring people that care deeply about you and your life’s most amazing moments. Couples date nights, pre-session planning meet-ups, and Pinterest style boards are all fun things we do to help us create great photos before we even pick up the camera.

ESCAPE THE EVERYDAY

Life can be CRAZY!!! Our sessions are an escape from the everyday and a moment to cherish forever. Whether it’s a wedding, engagement session, anniversary session, or an amazing life moment, we give you permission to feel AMAZING...because you are! We’ll be sure to capture it in photos forever.

ICING ON THE CAKE

After each session, we are so excited to share your images with you! Your images will be available within in a few short weeks via PASS for easy online access! And if you are available, we’d love to host a Reveal Party with you at our home. Drinks and dessert are on us, but the memories are all yours!
