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.
But back to that Same Day Edit. It’s a highlight video that’s edited on the day of your wedding, and shown to you and all your guests at the reception. You can’t get a better wedding gift than that! An event professional told us, “Ryan’s Same Day Edit is incredible. Some video guys take 3 months to produce what he does for the Same Day Edit!! Insane!!!” And his couples tell us it’s pretty much the coolest thing they’ve ever seen at a wedding.

“I was a little indecisive about whether I wanted to get the Same Day Edit or not, but I’m so glad I did. Our guests (and even DJ!) thought it was simply the coolest thing they had seen at a wedding, EVER. It was incredibly well-done and it floored everyone how FAST Ryan was able to put together such a high-quality piece of art.”
“His editing is better than most full-length movies and his style is truly his own, full of emotion. It’s something you want to watch over and over and over and will still bring you to tears. It’s powerful and beautiful.”
“Ryan truly is a video ninja.”
“I’ve had an abundant amount of feedback from friends and family who loved our videos and I still re-watch my videos and cry to it, which is exactly what I expected when I hired Ryan.”
“The best money we spent on our whole wedding.”
“In the end, one of the biggest things I learned about wedding planning was to not skip on video, or on Ryan…if you do, you will regret it. He’s simply the best at what he does, and I unreservedly highly recommend him.”
“I watched over 50 videos across several different videographers and Ryan captured everything on my checklist. The quality of work he produced and the emotions I felt while watching his videos made me realize he was my top choice for my wedding. I’m extremely picky and know what I wanted when I was searching for a videographer—and Ryan nailed it.”
“This is not a wedding video. This is wedding cinematography.”

Questions and AnswersRead More Show Less
What 3 words best describe your work?Emotion. Art. Love.
Why should someone hire you?Because I deliver crazy cinematic wedding videos the SAME DAY as the wedding. None of this waiting around for 6 months nonsense :) I also respond super fast to all emails. And, I'm a ninja.
What drew you to this field/how did you get started?After majoring in Film at the University of Notre Dame I moved out to LA to pursue my passion. I quickly found myself impatient with how long TV and film productions took to accomplish just a few shots, let alone finish an entire project. That's when I stumbled into the wedding world and found this crazy outlet that allowed me to shoot and edit works of art the SAME DAY. I love the creative freedom and fast paced work that goes with shooting weddings, so I dropped everything and decided to pursue this full time.
What makes a wedding memorable for you?The speeches. They aren't always great, but when they are.... I cry, trying to hide my face behind my camera.
What have weddings taught you?Never light sparklers indoors.
What is the best advice you give a couple when planning their wedding?Hire at least a day-of coordinator if you have the funds. You may THINK the day will run itself, but it totally won't :P
If you could have any superpower on the job, what would it be?Precognition. If I knew the maid of honor was about to trip over the flower girl and land in the fountain BEFORE IT HAPPENED, I'd have more time to set up an artsy shot of it!
What are 3 words that describe your personality?Easy-going, sarcastic, calm.
What's your favorite book/movie/work of art?American Beauty
What's your favorite quote?"Man who stand on hill with mouth open will wait long time for roast duck to drop in" —Confucius
Extracurricular activities:Electronic music producer.
If you weren't in your current profession, what would you do instead?Cry every night, knowing I don't have the coolest job in the world.
What's your favorite way to wind down after a hard day?Bourbon on the rocks.
Tell us about your pets, if you have any.Cordelia—the cutest, most lovable chocolate lab in the world. In my unbiased opinion.
