Midwest Documentary Wedding & Portrait Photographer. Documentary Family Photographer. Film Photographer
Hi, I’m Ryan
Thank you so much for visiting my blog and showing an interest in my art and photography. It's so hard deciding what exactly to share about myself when I know every other day I would come up with something different, but here are some random thoughts I want you to know.
My life would look much different now had God not completely changed it around 10 years ago. If you want, we can grab some coffee or beer and I'll spill everything...promise.
I'm married to my college sweetheart (Michelle) whom I met in Drawing 101 class. We have three adorable kids (Madilyn 5, Lewis 2 + James 1mo). Crazy is an understatement.
Studying people and what they do really excite me. I don't care if its your profession, a wedding, some cool event or family time. If it's something you love to do or be a part of I want to know more about it and why you love it. But please, let me bring my camera and a notebook!
I studied at the University of Minnesota and graduated with a degree in Art. Painting was my focus. I bought my first camera for a H.S. film class, but only recently started pursuing photography as part of a business in 2011. Currently, I split my time between photography and painting. Each medium is vastly different, but influence each other so much.
I am so thankful for where God has me right now. I have a great family, a little basement studio, a continuously growing camera collection and a passion for creating. If you get excited when you see my work and want to create something together or purchase paintings please contact me! I would love to meet you and get started.

I haven’t used film since 2001. I purchased an F5 (looks brand new, $300!) on ebay a few weeks ago and wanted to make sure it worked. These were taken on PanF Plus 50 and low res scanned from the lab. And so it begins.
