Des and I have been wanting to get family photos taken for quite a while, but I’m a sort of artsy snob and have had a hard time thinking of someone that I could trust to deliver exactly the vision I had in my head for the shoot. Â Not that I had one initially, but when Destiny told me her idea for the shoot, I almost immediately Â said, “Ryan Ray“. Â I did a mentor session with Ryan a little while ago, and got to know him pretty well. Â He is an amazing guy, and Â he has an intense passion for creating art and revealing connection. Â Ryan is about as close as I could think of to a photographer with a similar vision and passion to my own. Â He agreed to shoot us, even though he doesn’t shoot families, and we could not be more happy with the results.
Destiny wanted to go all Jackson Pollock in a field. Â Five seconds after she said it, I couldn’t wait to do it. Â My mind was racing with angles and lighting. Â I have to give Ryan credit, I’m pretty sure I’m the worst client ever to shoot. Â I’m my own worst nightmare. Â I’m that client that tries to tell you how to do your job because I have my own vision for the shoot. Â It’s amazing, I found it very difficult to let go and just trust Ryan, not because of him, but my own control issues. Â He handled it beautifully. Â Here’s to you to you sir. Â You delivered everything we envisioned and more.
These are the one that I processed, head on over to Ryan’s blog to see his faves.
