Ryan Photography is truly a family-oriented venture, owned and operated by myself (Rick) and Carolyn Ryan. We have been married since 1988 and both are musicians. When our children came along, we needed to change our lifestyles a bit and I found my way into being a wedding DJ, around 2008. A big part of what made us unique was our Live-Pics(c), live slideshow. This is where we setup a projection system, take event casuals and display them in real-time. It was amazing to see how the business expanded so quickly, growing into a multi-DJ operation. Our dedication to quality service and budget-friendly pricing made us a hit in the Nashville market. As time went by, we expanded our operation into multiple DJs. We added lighting and photo booth service and expanded our offerings even further.
In 2013, I was watching Carolyn take Live-Pics and work our Photo Booth at an event in Franklin. It struck me at how fantastic she was at connecting with the guests at the event. Her larger-than-life personality really brought out the joy in the photographs she was taking and so, we added photography to our service roster. Carolyn is passionate about capturing the timeless beauty and romance of your day, creating stunning "Forever Moments" with a style that perfectly blens more tradition portraiture with modern photographic beauty. The photography service has added a whole new dimension to what we're able to do for our clients. Matt, our son, has now joined us as 3rd photographer and his ability has far exceeded anything I ever dreamed of. Carolyn still has her larger-than-life personality, and she just has this way of putting everyone at ease around her, which shows in the photographs that she captures. All of our brides just rave about how sweet she is, and how she put them at ease on their wedding day.
The concept that we offer is unique in the Nashville market. We are the only family-owned and family-run wedding vendor who is multi-event capable in photography, DJ, lighting and photo booth. When you hire us for your event, you're getting experience, passion for quality and a fully cohesive team that works as a single unit to make your wedding day everything you dreamed it to be, and at a much lower price than you would ever expect. We would be honored to meet with you, to find out more about your vision for your special day. Call us at 615-390-2784.
