Ryan Geldermann Cinematography

Cinematic wedding films, Same Day Edits and being a ninja are Ryan’s specialties. He studied filmmaking at the University of Notre Dame (where he met his wife and second shooter, Kate) so he’s got the technical prowess and mad editing skills to make you feel like a movie star in your wedding video. But it can hardly be called a “video” because Ryan truly creates cinematic works of art. His wedding films are storytelling—capturing the joy, the excitement and passion of your day.
