Gosh, how many words or characters can I use to describe Ryan Black? Can I write a book? Ryan is spectacular at making us feel like he is there to walk beside us and capture the essence of the moment – and always with a smile and a kind word to put us and ourchildren atease. His ability totry something unique and refreshing brings value to his photography. If we have ideas about a photo shoot, he helps us bring it to life and create what we have pictured in our minds. Ryan is a pleasure to work with and we have been honored and blessed by his gifts and talent. He captured our special memories not only with the still pictures, but with the photos shoots themselves. Those moments will always be remembered, all because of Ryan’s care of the people he works with and the craft he loves. Thank you Ryan!
We wanted to express our most sincere, heartfelt thanks to Ryan for his presence and participation on our wedding day. We were blown away by his conviction and commitment to make our day special– and not just for us, but also for our friends and family who are so dear to us. His calm, kind, easy-going, accommodating and incredibly positive energy was deeply appreciated as it extended to our wedding party, parents, and grandparents during the busy crunch time before the ceremony, and continued hour after hour throughout our reception. Even without seeing his work, we wanted him to know he exceeded our hopes and expectations. Ryan and his assistant were so, so wonderful! Please know that we enthusiastically recommend Ryan and his services to all of our future engaged friends.

I would recommend Ryan over anyone else. We have had both photos as well as video work done and we are so thankful to Ryan. My favorite is our family video in San Francisco. It not only exceeded our expectations, but it was effortless. Ryan made the video shoot like a wonderful day in San Fran – going to the park, playing at the beach, walking around pier 39, riding the trolley and PRESTO, we had a moment captured for a lifetime! It is obvious that Ryan sees life in a beautiful way and he reveals that through his work. Needless to say that he has God given talent!!! Thank YOU Ryan!

Ryan Black is a true professional. I asked if he would be able to provide photos of myself and my children for my wife for Christmas. He was extremely accommodating, patient and kind during the photo shoot. He was very knowledgeable and quick to make suggestions as to what to do. Our photos turned out amazing. We are looking forward to our next photo shoot with him in the near future with our whole family. You will not be disappointed.
I had Ryan do a photo shoot with my boys in place of those drab school pictures. He has a great demeanor and easily brought out my boys’ personalities. He found great locations that added a lot of character to the photos, and was able to get the exact result I was hoping for: pictures that truly captured who my boys are. I treasure the photos from Ryan, and will never settle for school pictures again.
I’ve worked with Ryan on several projects for Impact Community Church, and it’s always been a great experience. Ryan is very creative and professional, and has an easy going manner that puts everyone at ease and makes the process go very smoothly. I hope to work with him again in the future.
Ryan Black is fun and innovative to work with. He did several video projects for our church and was very creative and always a joy to work with!
