Hi, I'm Lauren!
OWNER & FINE ART LIFESTYLE PHOTOGRAPHER
For as long as I can remember, I have had a passion for photography. It all started when I received my first disposable camera at five years old. I loved the feel of clicking the camera and the flash noise. I would go through rolls and rolls of film, capturing the same object over and over again. Eventually my parents requested that I expand what I photograph as it was getting costly to develop the film. I got the hint and advice from my parents and started making album books of all the photos captured on my family trips. When we visited family, they would always ask for me to share my albums and the journeys we went on as a family. The joy I received telling my story to my aunts, uncles, and cousins gave me the passion to continue my photography journey into B+W film photography. I took advanced placement photography in high school and excelled so much my teacher nominated me for an art school award at the end of the year. I continued my studies into college and received a Bachelors of Fine Arts Degree. In both high school and college I worked at a portrait studio. After college I studied wedding photography under an array of Seattle area wedding photographers and second photographed for many years.
In 2015 I established my photography business and I am obsessed with telling your story! I have a passion capturing the heart of your lifestyle.
My favorite color is blue. If you have a wedding outdoors I’m known for my hiking boots. I’ll trek through the mud, rain, snow. Oh & let’s not forget the time I knee’d in tree sap. I wouldn’t say I’m a comedian but I’ve been known to make you crack up every now and again. Every wedding I photograph is different and unique, let’s make yours something special too.
HI, I'm ABBEY!
SECOND PHOTOGRAPHER & EXPERT DRESS HANGER
I’ve been professionally photographing for several years. Enjoying my time these past few years in Hawaii, I’ve now returned to the PNW to be closer to family and continue my passion in photography.
I have been photographing for over a decade. I enjoy being a team player and learning new techniques from Lauren Ryan Photography. We have the same passion of really balancing your day to be all about you and I love that together we both enjoy creating artful life style photos. How we do that? By making you feel as comfortable as possible and give you a trustful + fun expereince.
My philosophy is to bring light and love to every wedding that i am able to second photograph with Lauren Ryan Photography!
HI, I’M JESS!
I embrace being an introvert. The joy I receive photographing allows me to communicate and find my voice. I enjoy capturing fleeting moments of the first kiss, Grandpa smirking, children’s laughter, and moments never known. My goal is to capture the unseen and have them surprise you.
I’ve been photographing for over a decade and Lauren Ryan Photography is an amazing gal to work for. I can’t wait for 2019 & 2020 collaborations!
